11 weeks (nearly)

It won't be long before I will up load these posts I have been writing. All close family and friends now know. Just waiting until my scan on the 3rd and then everyone else will find out. Still no sign of a bump. Itching to buy things for him. There is a lovely moses basket on Ebay, and I keep looking at cots and pushchairs on there too. Will have to sit tight a little longer. I'm still sanding down dorrs at the moment. I wish I hadn't started. They need to be finished and painted by the 14th Aug because that is when we get the new carpets in. I still have a door and half to go and the cupboards to do. John is helping me. Then when that is done we are going to start on the spare room and paint it ready for Feb.

9 Weeks.

Have been busy this week. Have started to tell people about the pregnancy. Went to Holly's on Wednesday and had tea with her. Told her. This week I'm going to tell Vicky. Today it is the turn of John's Mum, so we are off to Lincoln in a moment. Tomorrow after school we are going to see John's Dad to tell them know. Also need to tell Nick and Ros.
I seem to feeling better and fancying food now. I was hungry yesterday for the first time in weeks. John is still doing a super job of looking after me. He has booked a trip on a boat with a meal for Tuesday. He has also started to clear out the shed in the garden so we have more room to put stuff in.
I have my first really panic yesterday morning. I have had a really bad headache for the last couple of days. For my birthday Col got my a tiara making course in Grantham. I was feeling so poorly and rotten that I completely broke down. Then everything came out, the spare room, decorating, money, job and panic set in. It took lots of tissues and reassurance before I got going again. Anyway, I went to the class and it was super, I made 2 lovely tiaras.
I have also gone off chocolate. got masses for my birthday and don't seem to fancy any at the moment.
Went to the midwife, got myself all worked up about the blood draining. Only for her to say that it will be done in the hospital on the scan visit. The appointment was just filling out forms. The Scan appointment is on the 3rd August, I will be 12 weeks by then.

Saturday Surprises.

Saturday was a very odd day. Got a call from Col asking if she could come round for a coffee. As soon as she popped in and sat on the sofa she burst out saying 'I'm pregnant!'
Arse, well I couldn't be out done by the younger sis so I told her I was pregnant as well. Katie then arrives. She already knew about Col. So I told her my news and she didn't believe me and thought I was winding her up. Turns out Col is around 2 months as well, thought she doesn't know precise dates yet and won't until her scan. She also has an appointment with the midwife on Friday at 10:00, mine is at 9:00. She will also have the baby at Pilgrim hospital. I'm 2 months last Monday. She bang goes John and I not telling everyone till 12 weeks. Discussed it with John and thought we might as well tell everyone else.
Went round to Mums first and told her, then Dad, and from there rang Janet. Then nipped in to Grandmas. I very busy and unexpected day. Since then I have told Lou and I'm off to Hols tomorrow to tell her. Then on Sunday to Johns mum and on Monday evening Johns dad. Looking forward to people pampering me now they know, thought I will have to share it with Col.
At the moment baby is around 2.2cms and looks like a large cashew nut. Still not feeling sick, but neither is Col and Mum said she wasn't that sick when she has us, so maybe it runs in the family. Still feeling tired a great deal. I don't help myself by going to bed at a decent time. Anyway. I won't be long now until these posts are published, not that most people know.
