So the hubby was 30 today! His office had bought him a big “30 today” badge which he had to wear all day. But We took a day off and went shopping to Trafford Centre as a treat. So because he wasn’t at work to wear the badge I had to take a photo of him at Traffordd Centre wearing it. Here’s the proof:

Spent a couple of hours around there going to every shoe shop to try on shoes for him. We ended up getting shoes from the Sketchers shop (last shoe shop in the complex)! He bought two pairs and I bought one pair. We’ve decided that we love Skechers shoes! Mine will last for the next year if they’re anything like my previous ones. I still wear my previous ones as they’re comfy but they’re starting to fall apart a bit.

On the way out of Trafford Centre we went to the Mamas & Papas store where we bought a chest harness to carry the baby around in. I was going to buy a fabric sling but I gave in to the hubby’s request to get this one as he swayed me with the following sentence – “if I had one of these then what I’d do is come home from work, strap her in to this and take her for a walk with the dogs so you could have a nap and catch up on some sleep.” Well how could I argue with that?!

After Trafford Centre we went to hubby’s parents house for a Chinese banquet which was yummy! However it was the second time I had Chinese in a matter of three days – I went to see my Nain on Saturday and we decided to have a Chinese takeaway as she didn’t fancy cooking and I hadn’t had my hometown takeaway in ages! It was absolutely gorgeous!

Well the latest midwife appointment was on Monday. Baby is measuring bang on average with perfect growth level. Unfortunately little Madame is currently breech. But not to worry as I’m only 31 weeks so there’s plenty of time for her to turn still. I have to see the midwife again at 34 weeks and if baby is still breech then I’ll have to go for a scan to confirm. Unless she moves it’s likely I’ll have to have a c-section…… which means having to go in to hospital! Oh no!!

With that in mind I’ve started packing my hospital bag. I need to pack a bag anyway just in case I have to go in with complications during a normal delivery anyway. It’s such a weird thing to do! Packing stuff for me and for a baby that isn’t even here yet! I haven’t gotten very far yet though. According to the midwife I’ll need to pack the following things.

For Baby
– a pack of nappies
– wipes

– bodysuit x 3
– a dummy (or pacifier for you Americans)
– a toy
– blankets
– car seat

For Me – during labour
– dressing gown
– loose fitting t-shirt
– comfy pyjamas
– slippers
– reading material (in case things slow down)
– water spray to cool down
– water to drink
– music to relax
– snacks
– big knickers

For Me – post labour
– nursing bra
– clothes for going home
– sanitary towels

For Husband
– reading materials
– change of clothes
– drinks
– snacks

Who on earth ever thought you’d need so much stuff!! And as you can see I’ve packed all of 0%! I think we have everything but I need to wash the baby clothes before packing them which is my job this weekend.
