Weekend Antics: Good company, chilling and early signs of labour

So this weekend was filled with good company, laughs, emotions, one tasty burger and some fun early labour symptoms….yet nothing regular..I mean seriously I wish they had a red light that goes off when your in labour.

So I had my friends Letty, Alex and Jon stay over and we ate food..probably too much food, watched annoying films and generally lazed around. Was perfect. Saturday evening and Sunday brought on emotions, wine was needed, as I had the joy of uncomfortable tightenings. 3 every hour for like 5 hours..which didn’t progress or become any more regular..and then stopped. It’s been one of those weekends where things changed dramatically. Everything got shaken up but for the good..I mean I think it hit us pretty quickly that in a few weeks there’s going to be a little one of us..and that’s pretty mental.

Then there was the burger, I am not ashamed to admit that me Letty and Richard travelled 40 minutes to Cambridge for a Five Guys burger…so totally worth it…and it’s something i’ve been craving for like the last 6 months.

Yes this is a depressing looking pond…but things were discussed and emotions were high, so no matter how ugly it looks, in my mind I felt like I needed to remember it..I have to say, and I know I have said it  lot, but pregnancy is really hard emotionally, physically and mentally. You can completely loose yourself, and it’s always the women who get the attention but it’s easy to forget that the men go through just as much mental and emotional changes, I mean come on..it’s kind of scary having a baby…and this weekend with my early labour pains, we both discussed it honestly how hard the last 9 months have been and now I think we are finally ready..with 2 weeks to spare!

So ending it on a less dramatic note, I promised you a couple of pictures of my outfit from the wedding. Now I hate having my picture taken, honestly I can’t really smile on cue, but surprisingly I loved these two which were taken by my friend for me..I don’t know if I have just accepted my big whale pregnancy body, or more that it’s nice to see me and Richard in pictures together all dressed up with the bump included. But either way…quite possibly my favourite pictures of me and Richard.

So here is a full view of my outfit. It was super important that I picked something that was going to be comfortable. So my dress is from ASOS, they don’t have it anymore, but it actually was white, and obviously I can’t wear white to a wedding so I died it pastel lilac and it came out really lovely. My kimono with lemon detail is also from ASOS see it here. I loved the bright pattern, and it was nice and cool to wear..although it was still a super warm day as you can see by my lovely red cheeks. Richards suit was lovely, and he spent a good hour polishing his shoes…so let’s just appreciate that for a minute..

So I’m 38 weeks and 3 days…so yeah not long now at all…and my list is still super crazy long..but I think i’m ready..well to be honest I am sooo ready to not be pregnant anymore..

yep. Bring it on.
