According to our first scan which dated us at 7 weeks and 1 day we should now be 12 weeks pregnant today. Of course this date could be wrong, and I expect that our due date will be changed at our scan on Friday, but for now we are assuming that we have finally reached that magical date.
Now is the time that not only our risk of miscarriage is significantly reduced, but also my delightful pregnancy symptoms should be getting easier to manage. There is no use expecting that to happen right now though, as my body happily showed me this morning (note to self, breakfast should be eaten after you have thrown up, not before!). Still, after 6 weeks of morning sickness now I will be grateful for even just a little break now and then...
I feel like a bit of a hermit at the moment. I don't want to go on about it all the time but it really does interrupt my life. I haven't really been able to go out and see friends or family. I can't tidy my home (which really gets me down) and I can't cook dinner for Phil. It is like I am stuck in some kind of limbo and I can't wait to break free of it! Imagine if I wasn't on the anti-sickness tablets... what would it be like that?!
Anyway, that's enough of that doom and gloom... our scan is on Friday! It is at 3pm and we are so excited! Nervous... but excited all the same! I don't really know what to expect but I am sure that it will be brilliant and we are taking lots of change so we can get a lovely picture of Dave. Then when we get home we will be announcing our pregnancy to the world! I don't know why but I am so nervous about telling everyone! Mad isn't it! Still, it will be brilliant!
Before we come home though we will be going to Mothercare and (hopefully, if all goes well) buying Dave's crib. I know that it is still early days, but we have waited for years for this moment and I am not waiting anymore! I can't! We have done well not to buy anything so far as it is! It will be so fantastic to actually be able to buy something for once.
Loads of wonderful things to come, bring on Friday!
