Today

Saturday, 25th Feb 2017

Today we went to the midwife to try to get some membrane sweep done to encourage labour, however was told we couldn't do it as baby's head was not low enough. So we went to Cafe Nero in Chipping Norton where Owen was hyper and happy to be out.

Today I finally got to eat my favourite coffee walnut cake at Jaffa & Neale bookshop cafe and even got to do some sketching in peace (Owen at nursery). It was enjoyable.

Today I finally got a replacement laptop from my workplace. It is quite slow and noisy, but is good enough for my maternity leave. Sadly still no baby though my colleague who's also expecting, had their baby yesterday! Quite jealous.

Today I had a midwife appointment, after which we visited my workplace to pick something up, and went to Banbury Hill Farm for tea where I did some sketching.

Today Owen threw a massive tantrum when Peter refused to play his favourite game of making every spoonful of dinner 'talk'. We had to explain to him how tiresome it was for us to do that constantly. Eventually we reached some sort of resolution and it seemed our relationship has grown stronger.

Today grandpa came to visit and took Owen off our hands. In the morning we took Owen to tumble tots for the first time.

Today still no baby. We went to Witney to get supplies and Owen was happy and hyper all day, making Peter and I quite exhausted.

Today I was disappointed that the baby didn't want to be born on this beautiful date that I had chosen for her birthday (17-02-2017, all prime numbers).

Today Owen was excited to go to tennis lessons but ended up feeling bad as he was the only new kid amongst the mostly older kids, and was lost and left out. "Want to go home and see mama," he said dejectedly. Poor boy!
