I’ve had a weekend full of Christmas markets and Christmas preparations like wrapping gifts, baking Christmas bread and decorating our apartment. I just love December! Only thing missing is some snow.
Delivery is getting closer, but I’m not nervous at all! I think something must be happening in your brain that makes you this calm, even though you know you’re soon about to experience the most pain you probably will have in your entire life.
Instead of being nervous I’m really looking forward to that little bundle of joy and I’m enjoying preparing everything for his or her arrival. I’m 37 weeks from today, so in about a week or so, I could give birth any day.
I had a great time at the photo shoot this Saturday. I felt really pretty and I’m really looking forward to the result. I got a little sneak peak as you can see here. The photographer Kristin was so professional. I’m definitely going to book her for baby photo shoots in the future. Her website is www.kristin-photography.se.
Then on Sunday I suddenly woke up looking like an ogre with a huge cold sore on my lip and a swollen tongue. Nice! So today I stayed home from work. So happy I didn’t look like an ogre at the photo shoot. Thank God!
As from yesterday I’m 31 weeks pregnant. I don’t want to gloat or anything, but so far I’m having the best pregnancy ever. I’m feeling very healthy and happy. And also very calm. I thought I would be, but I’m not nervous about giving birth at all. I feel so secure in that my body will know what to do. I still have a couple of months to go, but as for now, this is how I feel.
What is starting to annoy me though is all the comments about how big I am. Yes, I have a prominent baby bump, but I do not feel big or fat in any way. And I’m very proud of my bump so all comments like “Wow! You’re really big!”, “It looks like you’re about to burst” and “Are you sure you’re not having twins?” are frankly quite hurtful. If you can’t say something nice, then just keep quiet.
Yesterday we went to IKEA to shop for some baby stuff. This is the crib we bought.
Outside IKEA they sold frozen yoghurt. Why we don’t have this more in Sweden I do not understand. Love it!
We finished off the day with a date night at the cinema. We saw Dracula – Untold.
Monday started out with a trip to Malmö with my unit at work. A very nice and productive two days with lots of good food, a lot of brainstorming and lots of laughs.
Yesterday, me and some colleagues of mine tried out a new restaurant in town. Best restaurant in town! The food was fantastic and the decor was to die for – 50s, 60s inspired with a movie theatre theme. I want to live there!
I just woke up and am now having breakfast infront of the teve. I had the best start of my weekend yesterday. First I had lunch with Linda at Sushi Yama and then in the evening I went to Stockholm to celebrate Nicole’s birthday. We went to a restaurant called Pappa Ray Ray, Morfar Ginko. The food was delicious! Sadly I forgot to charge my mobile, so I only had time to take a photo of the menu before it died.
