The Big One

Okay, its not that big, but I wanted to use the title. Went for a sizing scan today, and the baby is expected to be about eight pounds 3 ounces. Still no sign of spontaneous labour, have obstetricians appointment on Wednesday.

Slightly adventurous weekend. Saturday morning the kid had a vomiting bug. His comment - Its disgusting. This was actually hilarious coming from a four year old who has never really vomited before! I was very careful not to get it, imagine Ctraction, vomit. Repeat endlessly...

SeCdly, him and his dad went out Sunday afternoon, and on the way home the car died. This is not a good time for us not to have transport (!). R's friend from work has loaned us a car while his wife is in Auckland and doesn't need it. Phew! I was imagining going to the hospital on my own in a taxi to have this baby. (I almost turned the car down, figuring that Murphy's Law would mean labour would start while we were transport free...)

I promise to try and blog about non-baby things when the baby gets here.
