32 Weeks

This pregnancy is going so fast now that I'm almost at the end & I am completely torn between wanting to enjoy every moment (in case it's my last) and being so excited to meet my new baby.

I started my maternity leave a couple of weeks ago and I feel so much more relaxed now. Eight weeks of one-on-one time with Max, time to get done the things I want to get done and not having to worry about working is just what the doctor ordered. It's kind of like the calm before the storm I guess!

Max is really excited about becoming a big brother and loves to talk to the baby in my belly. He has his heart set on calling the baby Luca and won't consider any other names. Whilst Sean and I both really like the name Luca I don't know that it will be what we name the baby, hopefully Max is ok with that!

I'm a little worried that the reality of having a new baby in the house is going to come as a rude shock to Max. I was talking to one of the daycare Mums who had just had a baby the other day and she was saying that her 3 year old is having a bit of a hard time adjusting. Things like crying for no reason, wanting to wear nappies again, asking for a dummy have all been happening at her house. I guess we will just have to wait and see.



My belly is so incredibly huge now and I'm getting lots of comments from 'well-meaning' strangers (as you do when you're pregnant). I get things like 'only days to go now!' 'are you sure there's only one in there?' and 'you must be having a girl' from people that have absolutely no idea. Doesn't really bother me though, I love my huge belly!

The one thing I seriously need to get started on is setting up the nursery. At the moment is just an empty room stacked full of every baby item my sister and I have ever owned. I have a pinboard dedicated to the baby's room and so many great ideas. I just need to stop pinning and start doing!! Here's a couple of things from the board that are inspiring me:

Who knows how the nursery will actually turn out though. The one thing I have done is start to get a piece of original art organised. I am so excited about it and can't wait to share it :). Stay tuned!
