Firstly, thanks so much for all the wonderful wishes. And apologies for keeping it so quiet for so long. As of today we’re 22 and a bit weeks (or something like that) – more than halfway through. Yay!!!
I wasn’t sure when I was going to break the news (see last post). We discovered the news for ourselves in October. We hung onto the news, sharing it only with radiologists, a doctor and a midwife, through all of November. It was a great secret to carry around. We shared the news with family when we saw them in December. They shared the news with more family. Then we told close friends. In January we told work colleagues. In February I told the Internet.
I’m getting bigger but am still waiting to see the cute baby belly. I still fit into my jeans (with the aid of a belly belt) but prefer to wear looser, stretchier clothes. I got past the morning sickness, and am now entertaining indigestion.
Relief comes in the form of prenatal yoga. And burritos.
Please don’t say there is a link between the burrito and the indigestion – I don’t think I could cope with that.
We’ve been reading a bit – some new books, some borrowed books, some gifted books, and some second-hand books.
And I’ve been sewing.
This is my second baby quilt, though I haven’t finished the first yet.
It’s fabric I won from Valori Wells’ website over a year ago – I’m so glad I’ve found something to use it for.
