So…I’ve finished work and the feeling was ‘odd’. It didn’t feel quite real apart from the embarrassing gathering around my desk for a card and present giving – which was very sweet and thoughtful of everyone involved. It now means that the next stage is coming…the scary unfamiliar phase of counting down till d-day. #31 days in counting.
I’ve worked since I was 16 (Saturday job at Clarks – my little girl will always have decent shoes!) and there was that blip in Sydney when I couldn’t get work when travelling but apart from that I’ve always ‘gone to work’. Will I be bored? So far, not so much as expected…I’ve got antenatal appointments, midwife appointments, a couple of mummy friends who I am meeting for lunch or tea and cake to show this mum-to-be what it’s all about AND full blown baby organisation (that’s been v.fun).
Let’s see how we get on…
Will I go crazy being in the house a lot?
Will I miss adult banter in the office?
Will I absolutely love it and pledge a lifetime of being a stay at home mum?
What else has been going on over the past couple of weeks: -
Gestational diabetes check / Antenatal Classes / Lists Lists Lists / Nursery decoration (eek) / Mother-in-law superstitions.
