Wow, day 3!
Just after I wrote yesterday’s post, we got a new delivery! No, not the baby yet, but the pushchair, car seat, cot bed and mattress. This means we now have pretty much everything we need for the baby (except a few small bits which should be delivered soon). We have got a fantastic Baby Jogger buggy (don’t get excited – I’m not going to start jogging – they make other ones now), which if nothing else is the easiest buggy in the world to fold (see the video on the site).
It’s all getting exciting now. From next week I need to be ready to take Abby to the Jubilee Birth Centre in Cottingham st a moment’s notice, since it counts as full term from then. This of course means no drinking for me (although we are going down to Leamington next week so if Abby goes into labour there we’ll be going to Warwick Hospital).
It’s wierd not needing to get anything more ready, as we are just waiting. It’s of course not good for Abby because she’s gradually getting more uncomfortable.
On the bright side, parenthood can’t be that bad because we’ve just been told that one of our relatives is having another one (I won’t name names in case the news isn’t public yet).
