Hopefully today will be Bex's last midwife appointment.
She is due tomorrow. Though, as we all know, babies never come when they are expected.
All of mine were overdue, some by a week or more, so Bex could be a good week or more away from delivering yet. *sigh*
So, I'm going with her today to her midwife appointment, just to say 'Hi' to her midwife and keep an eye on Dante for her too.
I have not heard from Australia yet either on how my niece is doing with her delivery. She got induced yesterday afternoon... so maybe she's in for a long drawn out labour. Bummer.
Apart from the midwife appointment, I don't have anything planned for the day. I think staying home and keeping an eye on Bex is all I will be doing today. She keeps having powerful Braxton Hicks contractions so we are all on tenderhooks, waiting for the 'real deal' to get started.
I'm trying a new 'recipe' for my lunch today... roast broccoli, tossed in crushed garlic and seasoning, then sprinkled with some cheese. I am drooling at the thought of it...
OK.... I better go and start me day...wet and windy again today, so a stay indoors day for sure.
Well the midwife appointment went well. All going well we won't have to attend another one, but if we do the midwife might just have a go at getting her going with a 'stretch 'n' sweep.
She advised Bex to go for a good fast walk (something I'd already suggested), so we went down to the mall and had a brisk walk around.
Don't think it worked.
Still no word from Australia on how my niece is doing... all the phones are switched off, so they must be at the hospital 'working' on getting baby born. I hope it's all going well.
I have my broccoli in the oven right now... hoping it's lovely, cos it's going to be a really low point lunch, and filling too.
Tonight is my 'evil' dinner. I want KFC.
We have a visitor tonight too, our friend Jacqui from Tauranga is staying over.
It's always lovely to see her.
UPDATE on my niece: she's in surgery having a C-Section as I type this. So it won't be long now before we know what her baby is and how it all went. Fingers crossed for a fast and easy delivery.
End of Day: We have another wee boy in the family! I don't know his weight or name yet as it's really late here and I've only been told he's arrived and all is well.
Now I can go to bed and relax, I've been on tenderhooks all evening.
