October is here! This is officially the month we will meet Baby Mac! Whether they come out early or two weeks late, they will definitely be here by the end of the month. Which is so surreal!

The midwife told me last week to get out for walks, bounce forward, right, back and left on my birthing ball, and squat sideways going down the stairs to help baby move further down…the thought of squatting sideways down the stairs terrifies me, so I’ll just go with walking and bouncing!

Now that we’re in October and within the two week window I want to sit on my birthing ball all day to try get this little one out! It certainly entertains Matthew and his Dad when they walk in and see me bouncing and swivelling my hips. They’re just jealous really.

Why the long face? Because I cut the hair on his head today so that he could see better! He now looks like a poodle again, with very fluffy legs…I really need to cut the rest of his hair now, to balance out his proportions.

Today the occasional pains returned, and the night before I potentially thought my waters had broken slightly…but it appears not. No, that doesn’t mean I peed myself. This baby has got us on the edge of our seat (or birthing ball…), I don’t think I can bear living in suspense like this for another 4 and a bit weeks, potentially!
