E oddly enough, thinks she’s a hatchling (snake) and it’s funny how much she absolutely loves snakes and bugs. Most nights when we talk to her, she thinks she “pop(ped) out of an egg”. Thanks, the very hungry catepillar.
So it comes as no surprise that she thinks mummy is going to pop her Brother out.
That’s us, this afternoon, Son: you are 35w+ 2 days and already you’re wanting to come out. 2 cm Dilated and one massive contraction (and 2 small ones) in the 12 minutes we were hooked up to the cardiotocograph.
We’re heading home, cos G may come as soon as tonight, or in the next few days — so we’re to wait until.. something else happens. Nudge hard if you’re coming Son, mummy didn’t even know she was contracting up to the visit to the clinic!
I’m fine, and our spirits are up! Daddy is trying to sleep as much as he can, while he can. I Guess everyone worries about different things going into this birth– mummy worries about becoming an emotional basket case, and daddy worries about physically coping with the stress of having a tiny person depending on you for his every need + handling what would likely be a Wife who is an emotional basket case + not knowing how E would react to G.
Well, come what may.
