I haven't been doing too much stitching this last week. The weather has turned warmer and my hands just will not stop sweating. Sweaty hands and stitching just don't go together!
Instead, I have been washing, ironing and generally getting the house nice and clean for when the baby is born. The baby is due Monday week, but the doctor is considering inducing the baby next week some time depending on the outcome of the ultrasound that I had today.
According to the ultrasound technician, the baby is a little smaller than average for it's age, but otherwise it is healthy and all it's organs are working as they should. She very kindly told us when to look away, so that we didn't accidentally discover the sex of the baby. I still want this to be a surprise and it would have been a shame if we had discovered it at this late stage.
I have packed some stitching in my hospital bag, just in case I get some time to sew. Remembering my last hospital stay, I did have a lot of free time and I was climbing the walls to get home by the last few days. As I am going through the private hospital, the stay is generally for five days and this time round I don't need to attend any sessions on how to change nappies, bathe a baby or how to breastfeed. I also found last time, that I needed some sort of distraction to keep me awake for the last feed of the night. Maybe this is all wishful thinking!!
I will post again on Monday and let you all know what happens with the doctors visit.
