Exactly a year ago today I was three days away from my due date. The days felt like they were going by incredibly slow, but since then the time has gone so fast. Scarily fast. I really can't believe it's been a whole year.
I was so thankful that the weather had started to get a little cooler after a long hot summer that I struggled to cope in. I spent most of my days sat down making my way through different TV shows, I tried to go somewhere every day for some fresh air and to stretch my legs. It was usually a trip to Tesco, but I'd sometimes go for a little walk. I didn't have the energy for much else, I was exhausted. I used to sit and think about cleaning with disinfectant spray (who knows why!) but I'd only sometimes feel up to actually doing it. I had a HUGE appetite, I felt like I was constantly eating, and the times I wasn't eating I was hungry. I'm so glad this appetite seemed to disappear the minute I went into labour and hasn't come back since.
On this day a year ago I was really hoping that my baby would come on his due date, but was doubting it as it was only three days away and I was showing no signs of going into labour any time soon, and I'd been told many times how slow first labours often are.
The night before we had gone to a family birthday party. It was a little weird for me to go out in the evening because I hadn't done so in months, so was a nice change really. It was a lovely party and I enjoyed myself. People kept asking me when my baby was due, and I couldn't believe it was only 4 days, because even though the days were starting to really drag up until then my pregnancy went by so fast.
The picture below was from that night,
You can kind of tell I had a huge appetite, I'd gained so much weight in the last 10 weeks or so.
It's really crazy how fast the past year has gone, I can't believe my baby's nearly one!
