woyww 115

Well, I'm not here....I'm hospital....hopefully in the delivery ward by the time you all visit.

So, no crafty cards to half worked layouts to peek at, but hopefully a little bundle of joy will be here later today. You can rest assured that i will be posting a photo or two as soon as i can, but it might take me a bit of time to get round to everyone's desks this week. I'm pretty sure you will all forgive me the delay.

To see some more craft related sites, pop over to Julia's blog and have a hop around some of the other desks just waiting there to greet you.

have a wonderful wednesday!

Teased on Tuesday

Well, here I still am....still waiting....

This morning I had a few twinges, and I was sooooooo excited thinking that this was little button about to make her way into the world....but, NO! Everything settled back down again and here she sits - biding her time (a lot more patiently than her parents are).

My sister in law gave me some Clary Sage essential oil, which i have been applying every night but I think I'm going to give her it back today as it obviously hasn't worked its miracle yet!

So, on my last day of being pregnant looking back i can honestly say that i have loved every moment of it. I have more enjoyed the latter months when i could feel her move inside, but since the first scan when all i could see was a little dot I have been falling in love with her piece by piece. I think we are so lucky to have this private time with our child, I feel so privileged that i have been able to carry to term.

I am sure that tomorrow is not exactly going to be a walk in the park, but I'm looking forward to it all the same.

Lastly, just a quick thank you to everyone who has left supportive messages over the last months, they have truly been appreciated.

monday madness ... 5 days over

I'm 5 days overdue now.....and to be honest I'm just bursting to see her.

Poor Kerem is a bit stir crazy, he is not used to an hour to himself never mind a whole week - ha! I have sent him out to meet up with his best man for some lunch and a bit of a blether. He keeps asking if she is coming any time I have any idea! But, I just smile sweetly and say that she is in charge for a little while.

At least I know that on Wednesday I will be in hospital, so not very much longer to wait and i am loving every minute of being pregnant.

My Due Date....and assorted pressies that my wonderful friends have given me!

Well obviously my due date isnt on my desk, rather my desk calendar! And as for the pressies, they are all in my bag for the hospital, but i had to show this cutie!
So, what is on my desk today? Not much crafting unforunately as DH is now here with me and I am trying to spend as much quality time with him as I can before the birth. It also means that I am OK for her arrival when ever she decides from now.

This is a page that i started last weekend, still havent finished but like it all the same so thought that i would share. Sorry about the quality but it is in the page protector with all the other bits that are meant to be on the page by now!

This post is short and sweet, but to see much more interesting desks pop over to Julia's desk to see what we all do with that stash under our desk.

Daddy's here....YAY!

He's sleeping just now, catching up from an overnight flight, but at least he was with me at the last trace of the baby's heart this morning.

I can't believe how much more settled I am knowing that he is here until the birth now. I knew I would be upset if he missed it, but I didn't think I would be so relieved to see him. Even though things are up in the air with the baby's health, everything just feels better now.

I think he was surprised at how big the bump is, even though people keep telling me how 'neat' I am, I dont think he was prepared for the bump LOL!

Tomorrow is officially my Due Date, but to be honest she can come when ever she wants now that Daddy is here.

I am on a countdown to so many things at the moment I hardly know where to start.

Counting down to Kerem arriving on Tuesday morning.....
Counting down to my due date on Wednesday.....
Counting down to my induction date a week on Wednesday....
Counting down til I get back to my own house in Turkey....

The best and worst of all though, is counting down to the birth of my daughter and not knowing what will happen next. Wishing for so much and fearful of even more.

I have been keeping myself very busy over the last few months, but it is harder to distract myself just now. I have been a little down, and I really dont like it! I'm not prone to wallowing in self pity or the blues so I have decided enough is enough!

I am going to go baby shopping today and buy a couple of things for the baby. Everything that I have for her at the moment has come from friends and family. I think that there should be at least one thing from her mother, should she survive it will be the first thing that she wears!

Well, I'm hoping that this is a less worrying wednesday than last week. I got my post all written up on the Tuesday and then spent most of last Wednesday in hospital. Hopefully that won't happen again this week and I'm hoping that little ms button nose will stay where she was put last week.....i.e. head down!

At the weekend I did manage to start a couple of pages at my local crop. They are still on my workdesk, but I've not got round to tweeking just yet!

We were having a Tim experience. We got to use lots of his dies and alcohol inks. The dies were cool, of course now I want them ALL....but the AIs were my favourite thing that we got to play with.

I quickly realised what I had been doing wrong (no blending solution) so I'm looking forward to getting back to my stash in Turkey with my new purchases so that I can have a proper play next time.

Hope you share your workspace with us over at Julia's blog.

have a great wednesday

39 weeks and counting

Well last wednesday was a day spent in hospital getting a breech baby turned the right way round. I can't say it was an enjoyable experience, but it wasn't painful and it was a success!

I'm hoping now that I will be able to have a natural birth, but you know what...if it all goes pear shaped I'm OK with a section as long as it lets her survive.

Up until the weekend I have been having lots of tightenings, but they have settled down a little now. I'm scheduled to be induced at 1 week overdue which is the 17th Aug, so that is kind of what i am counting down to. Hopefully when ever she makes an appearance, Kerem will be here by then.
