I thought today I would 'throw back' to this time last summer. I had already been on maternity leave for a whole month and it was a particularly hot summer. I wouldn't ever complain about warm weather normally, but it wasn't overly comfortable at 40 weeks pregnant.

In the evenings and at weekends, my husband and I would go to a nearby reservoir for a calm evening stroll and sometimes a cheeky ice cream in the hope that the walking would speed things along. It didn't make any difference but the evening walks became the highlight of my days.
I thought after my due date (July 11th) had been and gone, I would be waiting for a few days maximum. Little did I know I'd be meeting my new baby boy two weeks later on July 24th!
