So, today I am 25 weeks pregnant. 15 weeks to go and counting.

Saw the midwife again today, apparently I eat too much sugary foods like chocolate (which means I have to cut down *sob* as glucose showed up in my wee wee :/ how upsetting!). I’ve only seen her 3 times but my next meeting is on the 13th of next month (3 weeks!!). Which means I am definitely getting close to my due date as the meetings are meant to get more regular the closer you get… right?)

We heard babies heart beat again ❤ It’s so precious and fast!!! she also measured my bump which was 25cm 😀 😀 cutie little bump. I’ve met women who are just as far gone as I am and they look HUGE!! I’m so happy that I’ve only got a small little bump.

Then again, I think I’m putting weight on all over which means it’s probably a boy… right? Well that’s what they say.

The cot arrived the other day!! And we put it up! I was so happy! It looks so pretty, the only thing wrong with it, which isn’t even a ‘wrong’ is that it hasn’t got solid ends, but it’s still a pretty little thing.

We’re going to get some cot bedding in October, no rush at the minute, and we’re going to start looking at sterilisers and baby monitors soon. (Never too early!)

I still can’t believe how quick this pregnancy is going. I go on maternity leave in just over a month and a half!

We painted the feature wall in the living the other day, so that’s one less job to worry about when babies here and next month we’re painting babies room ~:) we’re going for a shade called ‘Happy Yellow’ and it’s very pretty, 2 walls are going to be yellow and the other 2 are going to be cream with little yellow duckies on 🙂 (I can’t wait to start decorating! I love it!!)

15 weeks to go.

A Little Heartbeat! Made Mine Flutter.

Ok, so last Sunday I posted about the SCARE of my life that I had with Little Splodge.

Well, I am happy to reveal that on Monday I dragged The Partner to the Hospital to have our emergency scan.

I sat in the waiting room almost peeing myself with nerves (I presume it was nerves as I’d already been to pee-pee about 5 times that morning and it was only 9am).

But I was not the worst one, The Partner was wriggling around, making strange nervous noises in his throat and getting more agitated than I was. Which was ridiculous as HE wasn’t the one about to have a scanner shoved up his foo-foo.

ANYWAY so at 9.20 (dead on) we went into the little room with the scanner (I saw the scanner that would go up my foof and panicked – it was very long :/ which made me go pale apparently lol!!)

So anyway, the nurse, who was very lovely, asked me how far I was, I said about 7 weeks and OMG i almost passed out with happiness when she said “Oh well if you’re THAT far gone then we may be able to do an external scan”!!!!!! *PHEW* (The partner almost laughed at my sigh of relief).

So I got onto the bed and bam, NO warning at all she squeezed the ICE-COLD gel onto me, and only warned me that it was cold after my exclamation of  “HOLY FUCK”

SO anyway, I swear the room was DEADLY silent, you could have broken that silence by dropping a feather. The partner was gripping my hand, and I was so nervous! What if there was nothing there?????

But then the nurse spoke

“Yep, I see a heartbeat”

I think my heart stopped right then and there, and then I realised I hadn’t taken a breath for a while and was about to pass out.

She turned the screen and showed us our little babies heartbeat, I swear to God, it was the most precious moment of my life so far, it was so surreal seeing that my little Splodge had a heartbeat. It was tiny, literally just a little Splodge attached to a bubble (which is a Yolk sac which feeds Splodge for a little bit until I start too, or something like that The Partner thinks that this is gross, but never mind).

In the moments where I was watching my babies heartbeat, I think my heart could have almost exploded, it really was one of the most incredible moments ❤ and I love my little Splodge so much. My heart flutters at the thought of its little heartbeat and the fact it’s growing so quickly ❤

So there’s my good news, I am still pregnant, and my baby is 7 weeks and 2 days today (our own guesstimate was 3 days off!!) and I am the happiest I could be 🙂
