We are kicking off this week with a rather big announcement! You may have noticed I disappeared for quite some time, only posting again in the past 2 weeks. Well, I know I told you things at home were busy, but that’s not quite true. I was struggling to keep my eyes open and my dinner down… yes, I was going through the first 12 weeks of pregnancy – I’m having a baby!! Yaaay!!
I’m 15 weeks gone tomorrow and all I can say is it’s FLYING by!! Part of me wants to press a big pause button as I’m loving being pregnant and want to enjoy every second – but if I pressed pause I wouldn’t get to meet my little chick in 25 weeks – that’s 16 April 2013 for those of you who aren’t great at Maths. I’ve been pretty lucky and had a relatively easy pregnancy – the first 12 weeks I felt like I had a constant hangover and the tiredness was pretty intense but I have heard horror stories of vomiting from morning to night so I’m thankful that wasn’t me. I’ve definitely hit the “blooming” stage in the past 2 weeks – I’m not sure I look blooming but I’m full of energy and feeling great! And my bump has appeared which makes my heart swell every time I look down.
We had a second scan last week and saw our little of bundle of joy kicking and jumping – we even saw it’s fingers and toes. I am completely head over heels in love already in a way I didn’t know possible! It’s just amazing, and so nice to hear that all is well in there!
So, a whole new chapter begins for me. My day is now full of thoughts of nursery furniture and maternity dresses and my dreams are of tiny feet in little booties and a button nose I will kiss all day.
There’s so much I plan to do around the house before the big arrival – I have a serious case of nesting and I love it! I’m also taking a leaf out of the lovely Hollie’s book over on Tulips and Tea and having a date night with the man once a week (or maybe once a fortnight) to make sure we don’t get too obsessed with all things baby and forget to make time for ourselves.
But apart from that I think I’m going to sit back and enjoy every little second of this magical time. Oh, and try not to think about the birth until it’s too late.
Lots of baby and bump love
