34 weeks and 1 day

Less than 6 weeks to go now until the arrival of our beautiful fourth child and I am a mixed bag of excitement and absolute abject terror. This birth sees the realisation of a dream, my family complete and the arrival of our final child.....BUT it also sees a 38 year old, not so fit mother of 3, having to deal with the constant and daily onslaught of housework and domestic responsibility whilst trying to juggle a new born and all the other "stuff" life continues to throw my way.

I have my moments of shear panic to be honest, but then I try to sit quietly for a moment and remember a story I read a little while ago about the "mayonnaise jar"....this new baby is a bright shiny golf ball and all the rest is just sand, so I breath, and I gather myself together and I go forward into another day, and before we know it we will again be the very very proud parent of a gorgeous little cherub :0)

Now if only I could settle on a boy's name is DONE AND DUSTED and has been for months....I thought my girl's name was the same, but find myself vacillating again (sigh).

32 weeks 6 days

Been a while since my last post but that is probably because everything has been progressing normally and as well as can be expected for a 38 year old mommy on her 4th pregnancy ;0)

We had some lovely maternity photos taken last weekend and as soon as I have them I will post a couple here....have managed to really control my weight this time round and so am feeling quite good about myself - tummy is ENORMOUS but I guess that is also to be expected.
