Happy Halloween everyone!!!
Well I haven’t been on to write anything for a week now, partly because I have been very busy – spending time with the hubby and getting my Halloween costume ready haha – but MAINLY because pregnancy symptoms have hit me good!
Oh man oh man. I’m quite a lazy soul, always have been. I love my bed and I love long lie ins. I get majorly grumpy if I don’t get enough sleep. I always felt tired if I didn’t get my sleep.
But now? Oh hell I didn’t know the meaning of the word tired until now. I have never felt so sleepy in my life!! I was at the in laws for dinner and by half six I had barely finished my rice pudding when my head was on the table and I was almost napping. Very subtle when trying to hide a pregnancy..
Forcing myself to go to bed around ten every night seems to be helping (I’m a night owl, usually I’m lucky to see my bed before midnight). But I am still sleepy all day, just feeling completely exhausted tbh!
And then there is the morning sickness. Oh you pesky little thing! You hear the horror stories but man oh man it is constant nausea, I don’t want to eat anything..you force something down and it heals you for about an hour if you are lucky and then oh boy here goes the nausea again. On Monday I was physically sick for the first time. Which I was weirdly proud about hahaha, it means I am definitely pregnant you know? Haha! I haven’t been physically sick since but it’s a constant struggle with food right now!
On the plus side today marks the start of my seventh week! (Again this is still a guess as I haven’t seen a health professional yet). Not long until first trimester is over and we can start telling people! Getting there!
Got my forms through yesterday detailing my appointment times to see the midwife and for my first scan – they can’t come quick enough honestly! 19 days until midwife!! 🙂 and maybe she will try let me hear the heartbeat!
But for now I must prepare for the Halloween party tomorrow night in which I must pretend I am drinking and must not fall asleep before 7pm…
I am SO excited! Phoned the doctors to double check I was now definitely on the system and they said yes. So I excitedly phoned the midwife appointment line and gave them my details and woohoo appointments are booked! 😀 … Continue reading
Turns out hiding a pregnancy is actually quite hard this time of year – EVERYONE wants to go out drinking! I’ve got a halloween party, engagement party, all day wedding, bridal shower and now my boss just announced today that … Continue reading
Woo hoo! I have a doctors! Since moving to the city 8 months ago I haven’t registered with a local doctors surgery yet and obviously it is a bit more urgent now that I am “with child” (ooo how weird … Continue reading
Today I realised I have my first pregnancy craving – GRAVY. I have had it four nights in a row and tonight I made extra and ate it out of the bowl…not good haha! I was eating brilliantly all day … Continue reading
Why are digital tests so rubbish? I decided I needed to take a picture of my tests for memory sakes and the results of the digital ones have disappeared already. How unfair haha! Oh well, the good old cheapy ones … Continue reading
Today I went along to a psychic with my friends and cousin. We’ve had it booked for over a month and ironically I originally wanted to go to see if she could tell me whether I was to focus on having kids or getting a career first. Turns out fate has already sorted it for me 😉
Don’t get me wrong – I take these things with a pinch of salt. I am not a big believer. But I wanted to see if she could tell I was expecting – lets test the “Psychic”.
So, I was first up. She chatted about a lot of things about my gran, about my mum, my husband, my career aspirations. Then she says – “don’t make any impulse buys between now and May next year. You will need the cash.”
I keep my face straight. Okay.
“You are very family orientated – I see you with girls, you will be a good mother. Do you want children?”
“Mmhmm” I say, staring at the sheet as I write everything down, being careful not to give anything away.
“…Are you pregnant now? About 5 weeks?”
Hahahaha. I actually laughed out loud, I couldn’t believe it! I have no idea how far along I am until I go to the doctors/for my scan but I must be roughly 3-5 weeks. After that she kept saying it’s a girl, I hope I am right, *turns over tarot card with woman on it* “oh look there is your wee girl!”
Will be interesting to see if she gets it right…okay I know the gender is 50/50, but i’m sure i’m only 3 weeks, maybe 4 at a push so if 5 is right I will be impressed haha!
The rest of the girls went and then it was off to a chinese buffet and then cocktails. They were all drinking mojitas from cans in the waiting room while people were getting their readings to get the party started…so I had to make up the excuse that I was hungover from the night before and could’t bare to drink. Then I had to leave early as they headed of to the cocktail bar. This is going to be tricky to hide. I almost blurted it out to my cousin in the chinese haha!
But no. It must be mine and my husbands little secret for now until the scan! Whenever that will be!!
I’m a 26 year old Internet Sales Manager and I live in Glasgow with my husband. He has been desperate to be a dad pretty much since we met 6 years ago! I was always a bit more wary and … Continue reading
