I’m back after a long time away from the blog. Lots and lots going on, which I know I should have written about but hadn’t. A suprising number (more than two) of people asked what was going on – I didn’t know that anyone actually read this!
So, quick recap. We’re happily ensconsed in our house, lots of decorating has happened and it’s great, we love it. Work is very busy but good, we’re doing good stuff and although it’s kind of exhausting I think I’m enjoying it. Emma’s doing very well, we’re now 38 weeks pregnant which is a bit surreal but very exciting. She’s still working and generally feeling much better than she expected. Christmas was fun, very low stress, we had some friends over for the day which we enjoyed. Lots of singing in the run up to Christmas which was quite lucrative.
We had a checkup with the midwife (I say “we” – I mean “Emma”) this morning which went well. I think things are starting to move slowly which is good. Our friends Paul and Claire just had their second baby, a v cute little boy called Sam, and that’s making me very excited about meeting our little person. We’re also looking forward to Emma’s parents coming here later this month, my mum coming in February and my dad in April. The hope is for the baby to arrive a bit before guests come so that we have some time go get to know each other, but of course there’s not a whole lot we can do about that, apart from maybe spicy food and walking (which are both supposed to help induce labor). I’ve also heard that full moons and changes in weather can help, apparently because of change in atmospheric pressure. But we’ll see and of course I’ll do my best to do more posting here.
