Not in labour yet, and not even a twinge more than the usual Braxton Hicks. Although there was some speculation about Beanie arriving early, I am still leaning towards labour happening after my due date. I'm sure my body's gearing up for the big day, though. I've been experiencing many late changes I never went through with Jack, which makes me hopeful that everything will proceed as it should. Of course left to my own devices I may well have gone through these same changes at a later point with Jack, but c'est la vie. I've been going through another nesting/energetic/relaxed/calm/happy phase, and thoroughly enjoying simply waiting for labour to happen. No threat of induction hanging over my head this time.
Had a bit of retail therapy today at Milton Keynes where I bought two more impractical but damn cute outfits for Beanie (curse you Boots and your buy one get one half price deals!), extra chocolate for myself while buying a present for someone at Hotel Chocolat, the new Bill Bryson autobiography, and other practical things that were actually on our list of things to get. Voiles to cover the French doors, for example - sparing my neighbours the sight of me giving birth in my dining room. Of course that would probably act as an effective means to stop those weird kids in the house behind us from looking in from their trampoline, as they are wont to do.
In other news, big congratulations to Lucie and David on the birth of their second little girl Elsie! Judging by how quickly they were in and out of hospital, it sounds like all went well. Yay!
