So I’m only 2 days into being home all day and I’m already bored!!
I know I should be thankful of the break, and be putting my feet up a bit getting ready for baby’s arrival but i just can’t sit still, and I have zero energy for doing much else!
There’s only so much tv I can watch, and only so much crochet I can do before I’m fed up!
Im guessing now I’m much less worried about baby my mind is much less occupied than it has been over the past 7 months, and of course that’s not a bad thing, but it means I need more entertaining, being alone with my thoughts all day isn’t healthy!
so, I’ve decided, I’m going to sort Christmas…. it’s all going to be done and sorted in the next few weeks so once baby is here I don’t have to even think about it…. I’ve even been brave enough to order a few presents for baby…. though I’m sure like everything else they will stay hidden away in their packaging until he/she is safely here, but at least I’ll have bought them.
On a positive note me and hubby went to a breastfeeding information evening at the hospital last night, and although I didn’t personally learn very much – probably because id spent all morning reading a book given to me by a lovely friend – it was still good to be there, see how much support there is in my local area, and hubby came away having learnt loads and feeling even more certain that we have made the right decision for our baby and our family….. I never would have thought all those months ago that I’d be brave enough to go to a group like that, and I’m not going to lie I was nervous…. I always feel like I don’t belong at groups like that…. I can’t stand the awkward questions of how many children I have etc…. especially in a group of mainly first time mums, so before we went on me and hubby decided we’d just not get into that…..
when the leader assumed everyone there were first time parents we didn’t correct her (until the end when we spoke to her in private)…. you see it’s not that I don’t want to talk about my children – quite the opposite – I just don’t want to be that person scaring all the pregnant women with her horror stories – I don’t want to be that woman whose baby died that no one wants to sit next to…. so sometimes it’s just better to sit quietly and not comment…..
anyway, back to the point…. we both came away feeling positive, and happy with our decision, with even more leaflets etc for me to spend hours reading…. maybe I shouldn’t be so bored after all!
