I know I say this every week but I really can't believe how fast the weeks are passing by! I only have 6 weeks until my due date.... that is so crazy! I thought the weeks would slow down but somehow they are going by faster! Lol!
I am pretty sure that this week baby girl has dropped and engaged a little more. I have had the same pinching pains as before which are getting more uncomfortable each time it happens. I'm also feeling more pressure and it feels like my bump has got lower. Some people have even commented that it looks like my bump has dropped. I can defiantly tell a difference as now I can feel my ribs again just under my bust. So hopefully things are moving in the right direction once again and she is that little bit closer to coming.
Speaking of her coming... we got the car seat this week. Having never really seen a car seat up close before I thought it was going to be really small but I was so surprised when I saw how big it actually was. Baby girl is going to look so small in it. I still find it crazy that in a matter of weeks we will be bringing a little newborn baby home in it. We officially have everything we need for her to arrive now. We still haven't got the pushchair but figure that we won't need that straight away and hopefully we will be ordering that at around 38 weeks. So if she comes near her due date we will have it all ready.
I also got a few more things for my hospital bag and it's nearly all done now. Both a scary and exciting thought!
I'm so excited that things are finally starting to come together and although it may not have been how we originally thought things were going to turn out it really doesn't matter :D
Also this week I had a surprise baby shower which Mark organised. Read all about it HERE
We also went to our antenatal class and had a hospital tour. I will be posting a blog post about our experience in a few days so look out for that!
