Thanks for checking in, and you're not slack! I have to look at my ticker to remind myself how far along I am! :oops:

All is going well. Starting to feel very big and experiencing a few discomforts I never got in my other two pregnancies. I've noticed that when I exercise though it makes a huge difference to my comfort and energy levels. I hadn't been exercising much with the big move and was feeling crappy, but have made the effort to go walking or swimming and feel so much better for it.

I bought some baby clothes the other day, realising that I'd given away most of the baby stuff we had. Other than that I just have to organise a car seat and then I'll be as ready as can be. It's funny how this time is so different to the first (and second)... Back then I was stocked up with clothing, bedding, bouncer chair, playmat, toys, bath products, nappies. This time it's kinda like "meh, that'll do." I have a few things and will make do :lol:

The kids are excited (I think!). They've been able to feel the baby kick quite often recently so that makes things a lot more real. Pretending to be babies is one of their favourite games at the moment. They also draw pictures for the baby, and Miss 3 alternates between being a big girl ("the baby can't do this but I can do this because I'm a big girl") and a baby ("I'm a baby, the baby can't talk, waaaaa").

I've just chosen a Lead Maternity Carer, a lovely local midwife. The NZ continuity of care system is quite different to the maternity system in Australia. I'm seriously considering a home birth this time, I have an appt with my midwife on Wed so will discuss it more with her then.
