Truly Thankful......

No one could fail to notice the beautiful weather we've been blessed with lately, and long may it contiune, but, just in case it doesnt i caught a few rays today in the garden, it was blissful.

A feeling of complete contentment came over me as i laid in the garden, i could hear the pigeons cooing, the hover flies and bees collecting nectar from the apple tree above me...and nothing else.

I took some photos today, just for me really, i wanted to indulge in this blissful peaceful moment. I keep worrying that maybe tonight...tomorrow, i might have the baby, then thats it, im not pregnant anymore.... have i taken enough photos of the bump? Do i appreciate this time when my baby is contentedly wriggling inside me?...do i appreciate having an excuse to be fat, and people giving me all this attention, just for growing a little person in my tummy?
Ive had a good think....and d'u know what, i do. I really, really do.

HUGE isnt the word!

As i look up..i see...

As i look down...i see...
(my shadow!)

Isnt it amazing how the sun on your face can lift you so much?
I appreciate that

Im even appreciating tiny flowers in the lawn and the feel of the grass under my feet

A new haircut and colour today...boy do i appreciate that!

Dandelions, yup-you guessed it....i appreciate them-because my girls do..they love them

One of my only 'big fat pregnant dresses'

But not for long...! We're 37 weeks tomorrow, so baby can be born at home anytime from then
(scary stuff)

Love Kirsty, Ted, and Bump

Hi Kirsty

I've been reading your blog for a while but only in a lurky fashion!! I love it and am always pleased to see when you've updated. I'm glad you've decided to continue to blog - I know you start questioning yourself when you post and no-one comments - it's a bit soul destroying sometimes - but keep on keeping on - I for one love hearing your news. Good luck with baby happenings as and when!! ;)

Both my children were born in the Spring - a gorgeous time of the year to have a baby, especially when the weather is as lovely as it was yesterday. Not long to wait until you see the latest addition to your beautiful family! x

Glad to see you've been enjoying the sun!! It is certainly a lovely time of year to be pregnant. At least it wont be cold, dark mornings when your little one arrives : )
Take care x

I am a new follower and pleased to have found your lovely blog. Your pregnancy pictures take me back 4 years when we had a heatwave at the end of April. I spent my last two weeks of pregnancy reclining in the garden hammock eating ice-cream (a tub a day!). My daughter was such a contented baby which I think was due to the all the relaxing I did!
Best wishes,
