So I am only 3 days away from my ultrasound and I am hoping that everything is okay. I think that it should be, I have been having morning sickness daily which has been very reassuring.
It is interesting that most of those around me keep forgetting that I am pregnant. My Mum and Aunt were talking about taking a trip to Thailand next year in May and I said ‘but that’s when the baby comes’ – my Mum openly admitted that she keeps forgetting about it! I obviously forgive her, she’s had a lot going on at the moment. I think that she is really starting to find it hard without Dad so obviously the baby is not right at the forefront of her mind.
JourneyMan also said to me last night ‘have you been smoking?’ – now, I did used to smoke but I gave up when we started trying for a baby though I did have lapses after pretty much each failed cycle. I looked at him disbelievingly and said ‘are you serious?’ and he said ‘yes’ and I said ‘I’m pregnant, there is no way in hell I would be smoking’ – his response ‘oh yeah’.
Symptom wise, I am mainly having the morning sickness, serious fatigue and I am so bloated that I already look 6 months pregnant – I am pulling out my fat clothes to disguise it all!!
Whilst, I really don’t want to play the when / then game – I definitely will breathe a little easier when the scan (hopefully) comes back all good on Friday. Obviously there will be many more milestones to hit in the pregnancy but that is a good one to get done and dusted!
We have already told JBB and periodically he will say ‘Mummy, bubby, tummy’ – he hasn’t said it yet in front of anyone that doesn’t know which is good but if he does, I won’t be too concerned. He is such a good and gentle boy with his 3month old cousin, I think he is going to be a super brother! It is so nice to think that we will have a new addition to our family, our love will expand once again – it is such a nice thought. We are lucky.
