>Burgled!

>Well whilst we were away we were burgled which totally sucks big time….apart from the fact that I just bought myself a new ipod to replace the one stolen.
Mum is on a frantic knitting session and has bought numerous patterns and wool!
My morning sickness has suddenly got much worse. I have been sick a few times now in the morning when before I was just ‘feeling’ sick. Ugh I hate being sick and how weird that it is happening now at almost 14 weeks??? I have never been one to follow the norm! lol

>So this blog post is coming from my parents house in Suffolk where we are spending a long weekend.
When we first arrived on Thursday evening, my Dad gave me a big hug and rubbed my stomach which was nice. I think he is getting excited!
Yesterday we went shopping in the sales and I spent £150 on maternity clothes. I got some really nice things including some maternity work trousers. They were far too long for me and my Mum is taking them up for me. It’s wonderful being at home for a few days and having a Mum around to do things like that for me 🙂
Today we are having old friends over for Sunday dinner. Dad has had to go to work. He is an airplane pilot and will be away now for 4 days so I won’t see him again. we are back again at xmas which is really only like a month away now!
We watched a film last nig ‘And now she found me’ about an adoptive women whose Mum finds her when she is 39, recently seperation and not been able to get pregnant for 10 months. Without spoiling the film for anyone who may watch it, there was a very sad scene at a scan and I burst into tears in front of my Mum. It was my worst fear at my own scan and watching it pan out on the TV screen was very emotional for me 😦
Mum has knitted 2 cardigans for the baby and also she bought us a beautiful baby book! I have a few things to put in it already. She is trying to get me used to the idea that I might have a boy and always referring to it as ‘him’ lol my gut feeling is that I am having a boy!

>Scan day!

>So we got to see our baby! Wow it was soooo cool! We had a nice sonographer, who showed us the bits and bobs. I loved the beating heart, it was such a relief!
The baby had it’s back to us and so he couldn’t get the nuchal fluid measurement. So I had to go back outside and walk and jig about and poke my stomach and wake the baby up and make him move to a better position. He did and we got a fantastic profile shot of her face. She is so cute. She has the most beautiful profile!!
Our measurement was 1.55 which is good apparently.
Here is a our baby. Now it is very real, and very exciting!
Oh and we were put at 12 weeks and 5 days and my EDD is now the 27th May.

>12 Weeks!!!

>Yay!!!!!
But….had another night where I was up with stomach troubles…so painful. At least it is Sunday and I can flop on the sofa and have Stacy (I have decided to use our names now) look after me.
We are hoping to go to the cinema to see 2012 today at some point, I am looking forward to that 🙂
*does a little 12 weeks dance*

>Oh my goodness!

>Do I feel sorry for myself today! I feel like I have flu, banging headache, achey libs, feeling sick. Oh it was a good thing I had a day of annual leave so I could just flop on the sofa all day watching Barbra Streisand films 🙂
Also spent a good few hours asleep after being awake a lot in the night. My arm kills were the injection was given, I can hardly life my arm up!
I just rang my auntie and my Grandad and gave them the news. They were both really pleased. I could tell my Grandad was a little confused bless him, but he didn’t ask how it had happened….. bless him. Someone else can fill him in or he can ring me back and ask if he really wants to know. That is pretty much everyone in our extended family told now. I just hope that everything at the scan on Tuesday is ok!

>Vaccines

>I have just got back from my GP surgery after having both the swine flu and the seasonal flu vaccines. One in each arm just so I feel balanced 🙂 lol
It wasn’t a very hard decision to make on if to have them or not. The experts said it was safe, the risks to me and my baby are quite inflated if I were to catch flu and I have a job where people come in for eye tests even when they are poorly and spread their germs about!
There are a lot of pregnant women NOT having the vaccine stating their reasons as ‘it hasn’t been tested on pregnant women’ or ‘I will not put my baby at risk’. Well I think I am putting my baby at risk by not having the vaccine. By refusing the vaccine you are just taking a DIFFERENT risk…..the risk you might catch swine flu and then have complications.
I think for many women, they like to feel in control. They have no control over if they catch flu, nor if they develop complications from the flu, but they do have control over accepting the vaccine or not. This is the option they have control over and therefore the option they feel most comfortable with. I mean if something were to happen to their babies, they CHOSE to have the vaccine and will therefore carry guilt.
Me personally would not be able to deal with the guilt associated with catching swine flu. Who knows what will happpen.
So anyway, that is my sermon over with. I have made the decision that felt right for me and S and other women will make the decision that is right for them.

>Symptoms have gone!

>So for the last few days I haven’t felt sick, my breasts feel almost normal, I am no where near as tired and the constipation is resolving (TMI!) So this is a good thing…it means I am entering the 2nd trimester, that the placenta is taking over and I should feel happy I feel much better, but all it succeeded in doing is making me panic! At least before I felt pregnant, now I just feel normal!
I have my scan in 11 days and I am sure I will feel more confident after that 🙂
However the worry that there is something wrong is coming though in my dreams. I dreamt last night just as I was waking up that there was blood coming out of me. I looked at it and thought, please let this be a dream! and it was phew…..
We are off out for a curry this evening for my cousins 18th bday, I am looking forward to that, I have been having cravings for curry, and sausage rolls lol.
On another note, I had a hospital appointment last Tuesday to get more Clexane injections and they weighed me and I haven’t put on any weight! Wayhay!! Hope I can keep that up (unlikely).
Well I am off to work now for a long day, not home till 6.30 and I find those long days so tiring. I have some time booked off next week for just chillin’ and I am really looking forward to that.
