Yesterday’s scan showed that all is still well with our ‘babaliefie’. She now weighs just over 2 kg’s and is growing beautifully.

The gynae pencilled me into his theatre book for a c-sec on 11 August, which would be very close to full term – her EDD is 13/14 August. He only does electives on Wednesdays and his protocol is to schedule all c-secs for the Wednesday just before full term. I’m glad that he would prefer dealing with the unplanned arrival of LO (possibly at a very inconvenient time) rather than risk delivering her before she’s ready for the big world out there.

If our LG takes after mommy and hates the cold too, she’d stay in her cosy little ‘room’ for as long as possible. “Just 5 more minutes of snoozing in here, please Mommy!”

I’m doing well too and really can’t complain, all things considered. However, I’m definitely starting to get a bit impatient to not be pregnant anymore and to feel nice and normal again. And of course to finally meet this little ‘babaliefie’!

Just one question: who designed those ridiculously small urine sample cups used by the gynaes?! Oh right, must have been a man.
