Sooo the electricity is off today 😬 which means that lift ‘might’ stop working… hmmmm did I mention we live on 32nd floor? It wouldn’t normally be an issue to take the stairs but at this time with full baby in belly it makes me slightly nervous to think about going down stairs with contractions! We walked a few floors yesterday hoping for a few contractions but nothing happened except a pair of sore knees… to be honest I don’t believe much in these homemade induction methods. If you close yes it might start something but at the end of the day, he comes when he comes!! I have a strong feeling that he is going to be fashionably late like he’s mum always is 😬
I hope that today was the last time at prenatal Pilates as my t-shirt is to small now 😬 talked to some great mums-to-be today and it’s interesting how, here in Dubai we all seem to ask the same questions… Where to find xxx and What hospital xxx… I have written a bit about these questions (and possible answers!) earlier this month and on the ‘Nesting’ page. Just in case you missed them…
Whenever I’m out and about, doing things that a yummy mummy to be does, the cafe and shop staff always ask ‘What month madam’ and when I tell people I’m in my 40th week now they look at me like oh no don’t let the water break on my floor!! I dreamt the other day water broke in Starbucks (yes I have spent too much time in there😬) it was a bit messy but got free coffees for lifetime So maybe worth thinking of some strategy here…. And yes everybody really does call you madam here 😀
There is nothing like receiving a knock at the door and finding a delivery of unexpected gifts!!! Today this happened to me, when the delivery man came with a big smile from babysouk.com to deliver a prize which I won earlier this week via sassymama.com it’s a convenient Phil & Teds travel set for later this summer when we travel home to Denmark and England! It’s a universal travel bag for our Icandy stroller and a baby nest for baby to sleep in. Once baba is here I will let you know how it all worked for me. I have heard so many horror stories of strollers and prams getting destroyed in the flights so was nervous about taking it home but seems like it will be fine now
Thank you babysouk.com and Phil & Teds!
Are you going to the Babybazaar on Saturday? It’s a great market at Time square – you can check out some of the local online shops and second-hand items from other mums – it’s busy so come early. It’s on from 9am. I will be there – unless…. …. wish me luck
Happy Thursday – and weekend for Dubai peps 🙂
