Due dates mean nothing during pregnancy, especially when you’re told YOUR BABY COULD TURN UP ANY SECOND when you reach 37 weeks (totally freaked me out when they first said that) but they do give me something to go by. Which is why I’m not expecting this guy to rock up for at least another few days. .
I’ve been through the whole ‘squeezing a human out my fanny’ process already but there’s part of me which still goes, “hang on, this thing is hanging out in my stomach (ok so not technically correct but you know what I mean) which is causing quite a bit of overhang and he’s upside down with his back towards the world.” It doesn’t feel like the easiest transition for him to then make his way past that right angle overhang to get out... .
With 5 days to go until the ODD (official due date), I’m part curious, part 🤨 about how this is going to happen. Maybe I can get Tom to film it...
PS. This face = freaking out but smiling because if I don’t I may have a slight meltdown
PPS. You’re apparently more relaxed second time round as you know what to expect. LIES. I know what to expect and I’m not relaxed about it 🙈
