Well the nine months has quickly sped past. When people ask when I'm due the answer has gone from "7th January 2008" to "three weeks time" to "Monday" and now the answer is "tomorrow". Several family members aren't happy about this, in particularly my father who was the first to lose the sweepstake!
Without meaning to we've seen a lot of friends recently, really more to do with the time of year than us rushing to make the most of our last days of freedom.
I spend an afternoon with my mother-in-law shopping and at the cinema.
Stuart and Sarah came round for a take-away curry and I questioned Sarah (an anaesthesiologist) about drugs and side-effects.
We met up with Julie (Sean's sister) and her fiancee Scott for a meal and a film (I Am Legend - very jumpy!).
The Physics pub crowd came round for Steve's birthday, had Chinese and sang loudly to SingStar on the PS2.
I went out to play with Stu, Chenoa, Dylan and Malina at the winter market, the train station and then for a meal (and our baby carrier got its first outing). They also came round last week before the Night Afore (and our bouncy baby chair got a trail run too!).
We had the whole family round for Chinese one night.
We spent new years eve at a friends house playing new Cranium and signing loudly to SingStar, then ate a grape for every chime of the bells at midnight (more difficult than it sounds, especially when trying not to laugh!).
We had a fantastic Mexican meal this week where we went in for just starters and came out several hours and courses later.
We met Andy and Sarah for a chinese buffet last night and realised that a) 100% of the female customers were pregnant and b) 57% of the customers were volunteers with the British Red Cross.
We're now sitting in Wannaburger before heading for a swim (well, a paddle and splash about in my case)
Tomorrow I am going to see the Doctor (and hopefully get prodded less than the other doctor did last week) then do boring things like go to the post office and pop to a couple of shops to see if I can swap newborn-sized clothes for sizes that will get used more. We have a lot of newborn - 3 months clothes and a fair amount of 3-6 months clothes now. All we need is a Sproglet to wear them! :-)
