Preggo update @ 37 + 1 weeks

A glorious London morning greeted me as I woke today, and I went on a slow but yet uplifting walk around the beautiful Regents Park

During my last appt with my consultant, he advised me of that I should not go over-due, with all the problems I'm experiencing. He will see me in the morning of 31st December and examine me internally to see how things are progressing, and determine if a c-section is needed. 
Either way, I will come in on 9th January, two days prior to the original due date, to be induced and kick start labour, or have a Caesarian. Having said that though, I hope she appears much earlier - I am so done now, and ready for our little addition to join us. 

Other news is that as of yesterday (at 37 weeks), our baby is fully baked, which also means that I actually could literally give birth at any given moment and she will not be considered premature. 
Overwhelming but very exciting! All this hard work is about to pay off, and a bottle of a chilled Billecart-Salmon Rose, is sitting in the fridge waiting for me to just pop it open..

My nesting instinct is now in full throttle and I'm packing and re-packing the hospital bag, folding, unfolding and organising the baby clothes, sterilising bottles and today I've been assembling the new gorgeous pram that's just arrived (pics to follow).
