Again I haven't written for a few weeks. I'm finding it hard not to gush over this baby, and until I see it kicking away at the 12 week scan, I just can't allow myself to get too... 'gushy'.
So I'm almost 11 weeks. Monday I will be 11 weeks. Monday I will make my appointment to see my baby within the following week. And I will continue to hold my breath just a little until we get there.
On the positive side, I've felt a little bit of movement. I don't care what anyone says, if the baby is big enough to feel it if it were sitting in the palm of my hand, then I can feel it moving in my belly. And I've felt it move a little a few times now. Just as I did with Jordan. And at 12 weeks I was feeling full movement when pregnant with him, and I expect I'll feel the same this time around.
We chose Christmas day to announce the pregnancy on FaceBook, and to tell family members that we saw at lunch today. Everyone seems really happy for us. I printed out a pic of belly babe and just casually showed it to my grandma, and my uncle's new wife, and it took a second for them to realise what they were looking at. Of course it was followed by hugs and kisses. So wonderful to have support.
My belly is so big. Honestly, I didn't show this much until I was 20 weeks with Jordan. I'm only 10 1/2. Hopefully it will ease off a bit soon and not keep growing at the rate it has been!!
Should go to bed now. So so tired after last night's late night getting the house and food prepared for Christmas breakfast this morning. I had about 4 hours and have felt exhausted all day. Hopefully a long restful sleep tonight.
