Packing my bag.

So I have finally gotten around to packing my bag for the hospital. I don't know why but I kept putting it off. 
Denial perhaps?!

I thought I would share a few of the things I popped in there :)

My new slippers from Peter Alexander. I just needed something with a bit of sparkle!

Maternity nightie and matching robe from Peter Alexander.

Save our Sleep by Tizzie Hall. Thought I better refresh myself on this baby biz. I lived by this book with Jasper and it worked a treat! He was sleeping through by 8 weeks. 
Fingers crossed it works again :)

Also can't forget a cute little outfit to bring the baby home in.
I can't seem to get away from stripes at the moment. I am drawn to them. Including for myself, which is probably not the wisest choice for a heavily pregnant woman!

Of course I have also packed the obligatory black undies, bonds maternity singlets, leggings etc. I have also packed the makeup and hair straightner ;)

So I am 37 1/2 weeks now but the way this baby is growing I might be getting induced earlier. I have a dr's appointment tomorrow so I will see how we go.
 I know I've pushed out 2 x 9lb babies before but this one feels and looks even bigger!

I know I keep meaning to post pictures of the nursery but someone who shall remain nameless (Simon!) keeps delaying putting up the finishing touches eg a huge wall sticker. As he is worried about the paint not being dry enough or something! I have also just bought this print from etsy but in red :)

Here is a peek of the room.

Also a big thanks to all your best wishes regarding my mums house and the flood. Turns out she was one of the luckier ones and had no water damage. My other family members still haven't been allowed back to their houses yet.

So that is where I am up to at the moment, I will keep you posted :)

  1. Oh you are rocking the stripes Simone. I had a navy with white striped (horizontal, why not) dress i lived in while pregnant with my first, that was 1998 & it lives on with maternity choices, thrilled!! Another beautiful baby in your world, yay. I found i was always told (even with twins) i was having big babies but 8lbs 3oz was my biggest, i didn't care, it was all about head circumference!!
    Oh good luck, you'll be so great, those 3rd borns just know what to do, where to fit in, with school runs & lots of noise, should be a sleeper!! It was my key to a relaxing time, mine slept, it was bliss. Love to you all, yes, sparkles, with ALL those boys, love Posie
