While we wait ...

It's now 3 days and counting ;o).  Claire is feeling rather large and the bump is feeling heavy. We try to get out and do something each day but despite this, we know we're playing the waiting game now. The weather has been pretty miserable (to put it mildly) and it's certainly not helping Claire feel like she wants to go out for walks so she's sitting and bouncing on the exercise ball instead. We don't know whether it's doing much but it's more comfortable than sitting on the floor, which is what she had been doing.

Poor baby doesn't have much room to move around anymore

After hearing that she may be looking at a top 8 pounder (seeing as Alice is now virtually at due date) Claire decided it might be a good idea to wash the 0 - 3 month clothes, in case Alice outgrows the newborn clothes  very quickly.
So, yesterday I had some little clothes on the clothes airer :o)
And taking my mind off it all is the new Weight Watchers programme we were given on Wednesday night. They've changed the points system and we now have to count Protein, Carbohydrates, Fat and Fibre instead of just Calories and Saturated Fats. It's taking some getting used to and I don't know how well I'll do this week as I come to terms with it. I'm 1.5 lbs off my first stone and I would love to have lost it by the time Alice makes her appearance but if she's on time I don't think it's going to happen. That's fine, I think baby making her appearance is far more important at this stage :o)  Will keep you all posted as soon as we have news.
