Quoting Freckleface Watermelon:" Due in 2 days. No additional progress from last week (or the weekend) I'm 2 cm, thick, and baby is still plenty high. Was hoping he was going to come early but I don't think that is happening!"

Yeah, I'm going off my calculated due date of 3rd Dec. I know when I ovulated and when we BD'd so I'm sure my due date is more accurate than the 29th.

Quoting marisssa ♥:" It really does. I'm so impatient."


Someone showed this poem to me today:



"My baby's not a library book,
so she's not overdue.
My baby don't take long to cook,



coz she's not veggie stew.



My baby's not an elephant,
and I'm not fit to burst.
The time and date aren't relevant,
we're blessed with days, not cursed.



My baby can't read dates as yet,
because she's very new.
So there's no cause to fuss and fret,
if she don't come on cue.



So stop your worry, stop your asking,
There's no hurry, we're relaxing
In this golden pregnant time,
This pause, which is just hers and mine."

Sorry to hear that the pains you were getting didn't progress but great that you are still upbeat! It deffo helps to keep yourself busy.



I am spending today trying to get my christmas shopping done. Going to be doing it online though to avoid the crowds! Plus it's freezing here, not like lovely sunny Australia!

The weather has been really gorgeous here, so it's pretty easy to keep busy. Lots of trips to the park and pool.



Still hard to get Christmas shopping done, regardless of weather - especially when you're 9 months pregnant!

I'm jealous of your nice weather! We're hoping to move to Australia some time in the near future. My auntie lives in Perth so might go and stay with her for a little while. My mum went out to her in August when she has her baby for a month and didn't want to come back lol.



I'm not doing too great with my Xmas shopping. I just wanna get it all done now so I can relax and not have to worry about any of it when the baby is here.

:) I hear that at least 7 times a day. I just have felt awesome this pregnancy- I don't feel huge like last time & I'm still getting things in order lol.

Yeah, that's what I tried to do. Didn't get it all done, but nevermind.



I've never been to Perth but I've heard it's a lovely spot.
