So I’ve had my pre op assessment and we are good to go for tomorrow. I even managed to have a blood test without a huge drama so the hypnotherapy must have worked some how. The real test is the drip tomorrow!
Pearl and Chris on the other hand have a virus that’s making them cough lots. They’ve been advised by the GP to stay away from new baby but after checking with my consultant we are still ok for tomorrow, it’s too risky to delay the c section until next week. Also baby will have gained some of my anti bodies against the virus as I still haven’t got it.
Pearl has now got an inhaler to help her breathing. She’s been pretty good with it today but is struggling to settle to sleep tonight which isn’t like her at all.
I’ve sent Chris to Asda to bring me back some coco pops for my tea, if all else fails this is the best food in the world, ever!
Things are beginning to appear around the house ready for Friday!
The tree is up. It’s cat and Pearl proof!
Well that didn’t go too well did it?
We finished the Christmas cake today. I made it a few weeks ago and have been feeding it brandy ever since. Today we went to Grandma’s and decorated the cake even adding (washed) holly from the hedge on the farm. Pearl helped where she could and enjoyed wearing her matching apron too.
I can’t stop eating these. Baby will arrive with an orange tinge to her I think!
Mince pie Krispy Kreme.
I’m trying to put a play list together for the surgeons to play in theatre next week when new baby arrives.
My only experience of a caesarean was last times emergency when the surgeons and medics had to do what they needed to to save the lives of both Pearl and I which was far from a calm event.
This time I was asked what music we would like as it’s going to be a much calmer experience. I’m debating whether to let new baby arrive rocking and rolling to Elvis, swinging to Robbie, 80s dancing to Wham or other alternatives. Any ideas?
Today we booked in baby’s arrival date, Friday 13th! The 11/12/13 wasn’t available so we opted for 13/12/13 instead. Baby is already 6lb 11oz but should be around 7lb 4oz when she arrives in 9 days time.
PBD and NBD have been ‘writing’ letters to Father Christmas today. We are wondering if this is the right address or if the Royal Mail one is better. Any ideas anyone?
