Sjowee, the last time I posted was almost 10 weeks ago, we have been so, so busy, with work, home renovations, more work, family and getting baby boys stuff.
Baby boy is doing really well, was almost 2.5kg at our scan last week. We had a bit of a scare 2 weeks ago, my hands started itching like crazy and just would not go away, did an emergency blood test for obstetric cholestasis, and then another follow up with our scan last week, all is good, was so relieved to hear those results.
I also started getting those horrible Braxton Hicks contractions last week Friday, but it has since gotten much lighter and mostly gone.
Baby’s room is done, hubby painted it with a fresh lovely colour, putting a new door this weekend, we put a ceiling fan in there and all his furniture was moved in this weekend, I just still need a compactum for his room, which we will hopefully find this week. You must follow my FB or Instagram for the photos, and also videos of our busy little body 😉
Shame, poor hubby has been super busy, he’s been renovating, running the house and looking after me, the 1st trimester nausea has come back, combined with exhaustion, not a very good combination, but we push through. Only have 4 weeks at work left and 5 weeks till little man comes.
I decided to not have a baby shower at home, too many issues with the family, they are having one at work for baba on the 20th.
We went on our hospital tour on Saturday, things are starting to get very real now, and my file is ready for when we book in, we are looking at private rooms rather than semi-private, medical aid will only cover the semi-private L but we looking at it, will be so much better for a private room, I don’t do well with other people, LOL.
Other than that…it is our 8 year anniversary next week, pity it falls on a week day, we are both so tired after work that we just want to go home and sleep, LOL, not like there is money to do anything anyways 😉
Work has been crazy, we’ve been doing a ton of interviews for my position, I am off for the 4 maternity leave months, and then had enough leave saved for a full month of leave, but it is so difficult to find someone, they still have not made a decision, but I am not going to stress about it, I am finishing off on the 3rd of November. Cannot wait. We also have the auditors here, that together with year end has me so drained and tired, that my patience level is at an all time low, I know this too shall pass, I am just tired right now, LOL.
I have completely forgotten what else I wanted to talk about…losing my mind these days…
Anyways, hoping to update again before little man is here…
