Pregnant Vicki

I simply can’t believe I’m 38 weeks and 2 days already. This pregnancy has been pretty easy going and has just flown by. I’m ecstatic not to have OC this time roud and the baby will be here in no time at all. The C section is booked (as advised by my consulant as the safest for baby and I after an emergency first time) and I am ready, ready, ready folks (well as ready as I can be)…

I’ve recently finished my last directing job and will of course be returning to my screenwriting projects in development when I’m ready. Right now though, it’s wonderful to be spending this final time with my husband who’s on paternity leave and the little man, Oliver when he’s not at nursery and of course gearing up for motherhood x2.

…It does shock me a little to think this will be our last times as a family of 3! Yesterday we went to the National Railway Museum in York which the toddler adored (for the most part-more of that later). It was pretty fascinating in all honesty and I’m no train spotter by any stretch of the imagination. Did manage to recover in the Mulberry shop afterwards though. Phew.


Here’s Oliver appearing to wee (he’s not) near a small rideable ‘choo choo’ train I worried I might labour on, and which after waiting a whole hour for it to arrive, was met with Oliver screaming the whole whopping 2 and a half minutes journey on it until we were promptly and gratefully discarded, walking slash waddling the 2 and a half minutes back. Wonderful.

Aside from that, he loved the train themed playground for kids and jumped for joy at every locomotive we saw from ones from Japan to the first train ever made (or something like that)- so happy days all round.

    I LOVE that you still look so glam at 38 weeks!! I’m already running out of things to wear at 31 weeks and reluctant to buy loads more things that *hopefully* will end up being too big afterwards. Would love to read your top fashion tips for clothes to breastfeed in… an idea for a post perhaps? x

    Hello gorgeous! The look on your face really made me smile – it seems to say ‘I had enough of this’. Or maybe it’s just me projecting my feelings onto your face 😉

    I cannot believe you are 38 weeks already, where did that time go (easy for me to say as I wasn’t pregnant!). But it only seems a while ago that you announced your pregnancy. You look amazing. A planned c section is much more calm than an emergency one. Enjoy your last few days and good luck x
