Pregnancy

It’s Time…

July 6, 2010

This post originally appeared in my old blog, www.the-alice.co.uk

I write this on my last day as a childless person. The last day Will and I are a couple, rather than a family of three. It’s been a weird day.

Tomorrow we will be arriving at the hospital at 7.30am to book onto the post-natal ward, and then we will relax for a couple of hours before my caesarian section. We’re second on the list so I’m hoping we won’t be left hanging too long.

I am ending this pregnancy at 11 stone and 11 lbs, having started it at 9st 2 lbs. I’m in a different city and Will is in a totally different situation work-wise. We’ve had the worst scenarios thrown at us in the last nine months, and have ended up in a place I never thought we’d be. Yet our future looks even more promising than I had hoped and bar my hormones and the stresses of starting a new business we are very happy.

I want to say thank you so much to the friends I have made through this blog since October – I have had such great support from you all and I’ve appreciated each and every email and comment. Though I didn’t get to hang out with you all at CyberMummy this year there is always next.

I will be back in a few days with baby, and the next chapter will begin.

    So you've had a few hours as a mother – we're waiting for the birth story now. lol Photos will suffice till you've adjusted. Congratulations!

    Congratulations on the birth of your little girl from one Huggies mum to another! I hadn't been on your blog before Huggies brought it to my attention but having just given birth to my first in January I've enjoyed reading back through your pregnancy adventures, remember vividly the emotion of where you are now and look forward to hearing more about your life as a parent! Enjoy this moment x
