Its gone so fast!!

Interestingly, we go 40 weeks here and in France they go 41 weeks. I'm guessing that's not then the case there or am I being thick? It seems a big difference in number of weeks.

If I was to deliver at 37 weeks (words i never thought i'd type) then i've only got 9 weeks and we've done NOTHING yet....

V excited for you!
