1st of May and it’s beautiful and rainy - perfect soup weather. It’s also two months to go until this darling baby is due to be born. Now that I’m down to the business end, so to speak, I have started to ponder ‘Can anyone every really be ready for their first baby?’. And what does it mean to be ‘ready’? I’ve read a few books and done ante-natal classes but I don’t think anyone can actually be fully prepared for a baby when they have no idea of the character, habits etc of their particular child. I feel good. I’ve been eating well and exercising in preparation for labour but I definitely don’t have the nursery set-up; that would be a little too keen don’t you think? I guess all one can do is make sure they have a cot, clothes (or too many in my case) and a bunch of nappies. Check, check, check.
What are your tips for these final weeks sans baby? I’d love to hear how I could best be using my time from all your experienced mothers.
