back to normal
It's the little things that make me happy, like being able to simply go to the toilet and not have to wrangle a plastic jug at the same time. Particularly at 1, 3, 5, and 7 in the morning. We went back into the day assessment unit this morning, and my blood pressure was fine but a little trace of protein remained. Luckily, the midwife said I wouldn't need to keep coming back and could just continue with my regular midwife appointments if things carried on like this. So, I imagine now we just wait for labour to happen. Easy peasy.
I was telling Paul last night that I've been having a lot of contractions lately, to which he responded "Ooooh! Exciting!" with a gleam in his eye. It is indeed exciting and I am eager to see our little Pip. I was thinking about what I'll be happy about once the baby arrives, and of course at the top of the list is actually having the baby, but I am also looking forward to: sleeping on my stomach, the departure of the heartburn and bloating, not peeing every five minutes, and being able to eat normally again. Mmm no more heartburn. Fantastic.
Speaking of which, it's time for my antacid and soup.
