Back to work....
Well, the day had to come - today I went back to work and whilst I am dreaming of winning tattslotto and living in the lap of luxury for the rest of my life, it wasn't too bad. I do have to get this project done and it is good to have something to focus on to pass the time!
I booked in for my '6th week' scan today (except it is going to be on the 7th week!) and wasn't able to get in until the 15th Jan - waiting is not really one of my strong suits as you all know from my past crazies! I am feeling pretty good though I had my worst bout of lunchy sickness today - felt very ordinary but a little bit better after having lunch and then a bit of a lie down. My estimated due date is 3 September - how exciting!!
Mostly I have been feeling very positive about the pregnancy but I have started to worry over the past couple of days. I don't know where the worry has come from and it comes and goes but I am hoping that it is alleviated with the ultrasound on Friday week.
One stupid worry that I have is my weight. I mean, I know that I am going to put on weight on during the pregnancy and thankfully the lap band helped me to lose heaps of weight and I know that I will be able to lose the weight with it once the baby comes, however, one of the effects of the band is to take away hunger. This is excellent for me because I am one of those people that is an addictive eater so if I am hungry, I just eat and eat and eat and eat. So the worry for me is that once the band is loosened off, I am going to go crazy ape bonkers and put on ridiculous amounts of weight. I have asked Journeyman to help me so that we can be healthy throughout the pregnancy, hopefully it will be all good!
Journeyman and I had been considering buying a bigger house and keeping our two bedroom unit as an investment property but we have decided that it would be too stressful to do it this year, we will do it at a later date. So, this means that we are going to finally finish renovating the unit this year - whoo hoo, new kitchen, new decking outside and all of the niggling little jobs finished. It will be gorgeous when it's done!
Well, it is back to waiting again - keep me company?
