Boo, the title I believe is self explanatory. We are still here waiting, but on the upside have possibly our last grand prix weekend to entertain without being mummy and daddy!!!
Last 5 days have been fairly unbearable and after a disappointing appointment at the midwife who was far from reassuring or confident in her manner, I left feeling very down in the dumps.
Although I have now regained my optimisim and had a reality check- (it will be here either way in one weeks time) I find it most unhelpful that people continue to want to tell u all about their experiences, how they were late then had to be induced more than once, had back to back babies with no problem, did this and it started labour, did that and it started labour, went 11 days overdue, 12 days overdue, 2 weeks overdue, had a brilliant labour of a few hours with no pain relief, had a really long labour of nth proportion!!!! I think you’re all getting the message.
Then u have the people that text everyday, even though they’ve never picked up the phone to ask me how I am in the last year, who then become consumed by the need to text continuously with, ‘any news?’ or
‘well?’. These are the people that tend to infuriate me.
Lots of people do genuinely care and for that I am thankful for everyday and very much appreciate, but Dave-Mr laid back is now being asked everyday, several times a day in work if there’s, ‘any news’??? Not likely if he’s still sat at his desk!! I always imagined he’d be at my side during the birth of our child but other people seem to think he’d rather be at work.
People do do strange things sometimes.
Anyway it’s the weekend. We have each others company again until Monday and I keep my fingers crossed that by the end of the weekend something may happen. In the meantime we have sone serious grand prix qualifying and racing to watch which will pass several hours and will stop the mind numbing waiting that will no doubt continue when Dave goes back to work on Monday with still no developments!!!!
Oh and when it arrives- you will know. Although the order you will all be told in is already pre-determined by the contact sheet developed for after the event. Fortunately for most of you who will read these blogs, you’re near the top!!!!!
Loads of love x
