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.
