Pregnancy update: pre-baby hopes and dreams

So I'm now 36 weeks pregnant and the clock is ticking faster than ever! I haven't blogged much about my pregnancy here, so if you're curious then take a peek at my pregnacy/mummy blog over at Young Goth Mama (me? Mummy blogger?! Haha!). But with only four/six maximum weeks to go I find myself really looking forwards to what I've got coming. Number one, BABY IS COMING SOON! Although so far I think I've been pretty patient, the past few weeks I have been getting increasingly excited about getting to meet our little bundle. I keep holding little baby grows and cuddling them imagining baby wearing them and cuddling me right back. I keep having dreams about childbirth, although they are actually pretty pleasant experiences and the focal point of the dream always ends up being whether baby is a boy or a girl and what he/she looks like.

I'm almost completely ready for baby's arrival now, with the exception of making up the crib bedding and other minor details. So theres also more time for me to be thinking about myself. When the pregnancy hormones are no longer in my way I'm hoping that my skin will be less dry and more manageable,  but mainly I can't wait to dye my hair again. I haven't bleached my hair throughout the entire pregnancy (because of a disastrous patch test at about 15 weeks pregnant,  plenty of other people have no problems dying their hair in pregnancy and when practiced safely is fine to do so, just not for me unfortunately) so I have about 2-3 inches of regrowth. I have continued with the non permanent dyes just to keep my colour bright, but now I'm bored again and want to go a completely new colour! I think I might keep that one a surprise ;)

I'm also really looking forward to joining Batfit along with The Curious Professor Z and many others. Yay!

Obviously after having the baby I will be having to take it easy for a while and get used to looking after both myself and a newborn, so I'm going to take it steady but I'm definitely in! Having only gained about 8 kilos so far in the pregnancy I'm feeling quitr positive,  although I have to admit I wasn't in the best of shape to start with, at least I haven't got a ton of baby weight to battle through first. The main thing for me is feeling good and having my old clothes fit me properly anyway, I really try not to even think about numbers most of the time. Which also gives me excuses to shop, as I may not have any clothes to fit me for a while when I will be in between maternity sizes and my old size.

I'm thinking about making a clothes wishlist... especially since I don't want to go overboard with it. So thats my little update :) staying positive with many exciting things coming up soon!

Ps. Heres a belly photo for you! ;)
