Hi folks :o) sorry it's
Hi folks :o) sorry it's been a wee while since I last posted an update.
Well things are fairly different now....you certainly go through many different stages during pregnancy!
I had a bout of the flu last week, and being the anxious expectant Mother that I am, I called into the hospital for a wee check up scan. The baby hadn't been kicking as much as usual you see and my vision was a wee bit blurred with all the sore heads (and they always tell you to check these things out) but of course as soon as the Doc put the scanner on my tummy, baby started doing somersaults....the Doc said that those scanners make liars out of the Mummies lol. They were all really nice about it. But everything is great now and I'm feeling lots better...just a little tired...but most importantly baby is doing really well :o)
I purchased my first batch of maternity clothes last week and god am I glad of them...very comfy indeed...I no longer have to hold the waistband of my trousers together with an elastic band! And now that I am wearing the maternity gear people are noticing my bump a lot more and I'm getting regular pats on the tummy. It's still not overly big but it's definitely there! And I thank god that the maternity stuff out there now is lovely and trendy..nothing like those horrible smocks/tents they used to wear ewwwww!
Well baby is kicking regularly now....usually late at night when I settle down or when there is a lot of noise about....like when I'm on the bus or in amongst people. I thought I had felt movement before, but nothing like this!...you know when you get those wee palpitations in your heart...well it's kinda like that..only in my tummy...a very strange feeling indeed but lovely all the same. Baby seems to pick up on me chatting to Paul or my Mum and makes lots of movement as if to say "I know you are talking about me out there" lol. I just wish I could see in there to see exactly what Jnr is doing! But I go for my big scan this Monday so I'll be able to see exactly what mischief baby is getting up to in the mama ship.
Paul and I have settled well into our apartment and are looking forward to Christmasâ€¦then come the New Year we'll be seriously preparing the baby's arrival in April.
Have a great Christmas everybody. I'll update you on Monday after I go for the scan anyway.
Oh and baby measures roughly 18cms now....about the weight and size of a banana!
