12 weeks and counting.

It’s been a while!

But last week I had my 12 week scan 😀 and everything appeared to be going well 😀 It was so amazing seeing my little baby on the screen.

She was wriggling and squirming so much at first! and then she decided that she was comfortable and didnt move much except to wave now and again. It was such a precious moment.

12 week scan

But oh my goodness. I think she’s (or he maybe) might take after her daddy. We were meant to do a fluid measurement to find out whether or not she has any risk of Down Syndrome but we couldn’t because baby didn’t want to go into the right position and no matter how much i wiggled on the bed baby just did not want to move and get into the right position. So like her daddy she she clearly doesn’t do as she’s told.

SO, we can’t do that test, but I am having  a blood test. Bleerrrgh Do not like them. The y make me feel queezy.


A few days after the scan we went for our first baby shop, and to be honest, we didn’t quite know what we were buying, so we just went for one or two things to stock up on:

  • Baby wipes
  • Baby shampoo
  • Baby wash and soap
  • Sleepsuits
  • Bodysuits
  • Baby socks (which are so cute and tiny!)
  • Nappy bags

We’ve decided that w’re just going to stock up on essentials like the above for now, that way we’re not forever running out of things 🙂 (I thought it was a good idea)

We’ve also got some yellow bum cream (which you can’t buy in stores) which is amazing for nappy rash.

My mum has also said that she wants to buy us our cot, which is so nice of her and she’s also got us a Winnie the Pooh baby bath.

I’m so excited but I know it’s still fairly early and I still have 6 months  left! Which thinking about it, really isn’t that long, as these last 6 months have flown by…

I can’t wait for my little Christmas bundle


A little Blue

So, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything.

Everything’s good at the moment, no problems, except my constants moods and my inability to be happy. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I just cannot seem to perk up. I’m moody and miserable.

And my partner takes the brunt of my moods. I swear, if he didn’t love me as much as he does then he would have left me weeks ago. But no, he takes it and then guilt trips me afterwards, which, I’m scared about because the guiltier I feel then the more I start to want to be on my own away from him. I haven’t told him how I feel though, he’ll probably just take it the wrong way. He already thinks I don’t love him anymore because I seem to have lost my libido.

My NHS pregnancy card turned up so I am now exempt from paying for prescriptions, which is a bonus I guess. And my twelve week scan is booked for the 24th of this month, which I’m lucking forward too. Get to see my little splodge again on the big (kinda) screen.

Well, my news is few and far between at the moment as I wait for something exciting to happen like – a bump to emerge.

Not that I’m all that excited to have a bump, as for some reason people always think that pregnant women like to be touched and stroked – and THAT is so not going to happen. I refuse to let people pet me and stroke my belly.
