Still waiting

Well, I’m still waiting for Mini-Me to arrive, but she seems to be as stubborn as Stuart/determined as me!

I’ve eaten plenty of spicy food, but there’s a limit to how much curry/fajitas/chilli I can take! I’ve also eaten a lot of fresh pineapple, but apparently pregnant women need to eat at least 7 for the bromelain to have any effect!

On Monday, I went to tri club swimming, which was fun, but I think people were surprised to see me there. Then on Tuesday, I went out for a brisk walk up and down a nearby hill whilst Stuart did a scheduled hill sprints training session.

I was advised against doing parkrun on Saturday, which was disappointing as I felt fit and well. I missed seeing everyone, but I took the opportunity to have a lie in instead. Last night, I didn’t make it to swimming. Today, I’m hoping to fit in a brisk walk (to get some raspberry leaf tea) before having a relaxing massage.

Fingers crossed that I’ll have some news soon!

  1. Have him massage the back of your ankles. Just make sure the car is gassed up and warmed up first… in fact, maybe you should drive to the hospital and have him do that in the parking lot. And put some plastic down on the car seat.

    I’m not kidding. Took my wife 30 minutes, and that worked for both kids.

  2. Sure no rush! Babies generally arrive when they want to, regardless of your plans. In fact, despite any great plans. That’s from personal and professional experience.

I'd love to hear your thoughts...
