37 weeks - full term!!

37 weeks pregnant!  Wow this time has just flown by and I can't believe I have reached full term already!  When we first found out we were expecting 9 months seemed so long away, and now we are almost at the end of pregnancy when I look back it really has gone quite fast.
37 weeks!
I am feeling many thoughts & emotions right now;
  • I am so incredibly excited & simply cannot wait to hold our baby girl in my arms, 
  • slightly anxious about the labour & what I am about to go through,
  • thankful for the support of my amazing husband - he has been so understanding, helpful & is always there when I need him,
  • looking forward to the challenge of labour & adopting the different skills and strategies I have learnt to help me get through,
  • ecstatic that we have almost decided on a name,
  • grateful to have finished work & to be able to rest at home.

I feel so lucky to have had a fairly trouble free pregnancy, and am only now starting to get the typical symptoms of a sore back, swollen feet/ankles & having trouble sleeping.  I am in the middle of writing a detailed post on my pregnancy journey so be sure to check back & have a read :)

I have now finished up at work and will be enjoying some time at home relaxing, although I do have a long list of things I want to get done, including sorting out the cupboards & doing a big house clean!  

My baby shower blog post is also on it's way, but for now here's a little sneak peak at one of the photo's from the professional photographer we hired for the day...

Hope you are all having a lovely Friday & are looking forward to the long weekend that awaits us!
