It's a girl! Welcome to the world baby Isla!

One of the first pictures of my beautiful baby girl Isla
First of all, apologies for the late update, I know it's been a while but it's been a crazy few weeks. As you can see we now have a gorgeous little girl to look after and she's certainly taking up a great deal our time now. It's just been a real whirlwind and I haven't got around to writing an update until now. Luckily, the extra time has given me plenty of time to take loads of photos of her.

39 Weeks Pregnant - Get it out of me!

Issy at 29 Weeks Pregnant
Well as you may have guessed from the title of this post, Issy is now near the end of her pregnancy at 39 weeks pregnant, and is also near the end of her tether with it. With out due date rapidly approaching this Saturday (July 19th) I can't say I blame her, as it can't be that much fun now. We both just really want to get the baby safely out and get Issy back to normal!

Issy's Baby Shower Photos

I thought I would pop up a few photos of Issy's baby shower for everyone to take a look at. I think I can safely say a fun time was had by all, including us guys, who were actually at the pub!

38 Weeks Pregnant!

Issy in the hospital at 38 Weeks Pregnant
With less than 2 weeks to go now until the due date, it's really starting to feel close now - especially as the baby could really come at any time! Issy had to have a visit from the midwife again this week, and as our midwife is away on annual leave, she ended up seeing someone different this time.
During the appointment, the midwife was taking measurements of the baby/bump, and she seemed a little concerned over the size, considering that Issy is 38 weeks pregnant. Now, our usual midwife has always said that the baby is measuring up quite small, but has never seemed concerned and has always said that it's the small side of normal. Naturally we were a little surprised/concerned about this, but after consultation with another midwife, they decided that Issy should go into the hospital today for a growth scan. It was booked a few days in advance so at least it wasn't considered an emergency I guess.

37 Weeks Pregnant

37 Weeks Pregnant
 We're now well into "full term" so it feels like I'm waiting for "the phone call" whilst I'm at work now. I can tell it almost seems to make my colleagues nervous every time I pick up the phone to Issy. There was this phone call a couple of days ago, and I have no idea why they thought I was talking about the baby coming but I was saying something along the lines of "oh you must be joking", and my boss was practically warming his car up ready to take me home! I wonder if I will be at work when the time actually comes? I tend to cycle into work as I only live 3 miles away but I can still easily make it home in 15 minutes.

36 Weeks Pregnant

Issy at 36 Weeks Pregnant
Wow it's been a bit hectic the last few days. We're at 36 weeks pregnant now so just one week shy of being classed as "full term". Well actually as I'm writing this we're just a couple of days away as Issy will actually turn 37 weeks pregnant on Saturday. When she reaches 37 weeks pregnant, this is also the "magic number" that will mean we are now classed as able to have the baby at home, how we'd like to do it.

35 Weeks Pregnant - Some Pregnant Belly Pictures!

Issy at 35 Weeks Pregnant
As we're getting really close now to due day, we thought that this week may be a nice time to take some bump photos before it't too late. Now I'm no photography expert so please don't be too critical, but I've had a go at trying to take a few nice pregnant belly pictures whilst we were out having a picnic over the weekend. Comments and suggestions are welcome though!
