Well, it has been way to long since my last post… But I am back for now.
I cannot believe how quickly our pregnancy is going… We are hitting 32 weeks on Saturday, that leave us with 8 weeks to go till we meet our little monkey! It is amazing how quickly everything goes by, we were even in our first Antenatal class last night, which was pretty scary to say the least! Sean really liked it though cause he hasn’t had much of a chance to do any research or get any information on what happens in the birth or what he should be doing, but of course it’s not his body that has to go through it so for me it was little bit more scary. BUT that’s ok, the end reward is going to be amazing and I know that!
Gratefully, I only have a few more weeks of work left so I am looking forward to finishing all my little projects and the last remaining things on my to-do list and then put my feet up and rest! I am starting maternity leave a little earlier than I hoped but it has worked in our best interest as it is extremely hot down here at the moment which I have really been struggling with and since my job can sometimes be quite physical I am quite tired too. I have my baby shower in a few weeks and am so excited to celebrate our little one with family and friends, of course it is a bit harder not having my own family and all my SA friends with me. However I am grateful for all the wonderful friends I have made down here so far and to Sean’s amazing family who have been so loving and welcoming to me. Without them all I don’t think I would not be coping quite so well with all the changes we are going through at the moment.
So a big THANK YOU to everyone around us and back home for the support, love and advice. You all mean a lot to Sean and I.
