Thankyou everyone for the lovely comments on my baby belly. I was starting to think no-one was going to visit me anymore, so its great to see you still are :) I'm starting to feel a bit like an enormous whale now though! It's really getting in the way! lol...

Deb - YES, I will definitely be your model for your mother and child project - when is it? I hope I can lose a little of the baby fat by that time :) I love being photographed if you can make me look good, ha ha...

Countdown is definitely on. In fact, I'm half-expecting to go into labour today as Greg had a dream the other night that I had the baby tonight (Friday), ha ha... and quite frankly, apart from the baby's room being so far from ready its not funny, I'm ready for this baby! Belly is now getting very uncomfortable, I am finding it *really* hard to get up out of chairs or the bed (funny picture really!), and I'm getting more and more uncomfortable braxton hicks contractions. Ok, I'm ready for it to COME OUT!! Therefore, Greg and I are frantically trying to get everything ready...

We've managed to get a couple of items off ebay this week. I'm secretly addicted again, but not spending unwisely, coz we really need everything we're getting.... so far we've picked up a Safe n Sound reversible car seat suitable from newborn for just over $100, and a glider rocker for my *feeding chair* for only $40! Bargains. (I've got a rocker at my work, and I've been wanting one ever since I started there, as I just sit there for much of the day if I can get away with it :)) Greg is off to IKEA today to buy some furniture. We are finally getting our tallboy chest of drawers for our clothes that we've wanted since we moved in (5 months ago) and we've also decided to splurge a little and get a new wardrobe and drawers for the bub's room. We've been umm-ing and ahh-ing about whether we should stick with the set of drawers we have, which is wide, low and really too much room for a baby - then there's the problem of hanging space.... so we're going to get a small wardrobe with hanging space, and hopefully an extra shelf we can slot in, and a small 3-draw unit that matches it... nothing fancy but it will be nice to have new stuff. :) I've been working, so we've got a little extra money, so we figured we deserve it! lol!!

I'm still searching ebay for a cot. Yes, we do have one but its larger than standard size. This is inconvenient because we have to get another mattress made, plus protectors, sheets etc - made, and I really can't be bothered with all that.... so lets just get another hey! lol, that's what I figure anyway. I have a protector and sheets for a standard size (even Jaidyn's old mattress), so it will be much easier - now to just find one that no-one else ups the bids on! lol. gotta get the right price too...

Off to Ebay again. Hope you've all had a great week.

LOL.

I LOVED your tummy shots - did Greg take them? So happy that you got your rocker, too - and such a great price!!

Hoping for your sake that bubs comes soon! xxx
