Week 28 – Day 4

Yesterday we were down to 80 days left. We got so much stuff this weekend from people, mostly pink stuff, but I guess we can balance it out ourselves with other bits. Saying that though, if we even have another baby after this, we’re definitely keeping gender a secret! It amazing and a bit terrifying how people treat little boys and girls differently… even people our age. I guess it’s a lot to do with culture.

Anyhow, I got a pregnancy massage booked in after work today! Not sure what it’ll be like, but I’l excited to go anyway 🙂 gonna be nice and relaxing I hope!

AND!! We ordered a pram! Read that delivery time can be quite long, and they were correct… 1-2 months before it arrives. So currently it’s estimated to come mid October, but could get here as late as early November… which means that if she comes early we’ll just have to manage without one for a while. But at least we’ve got it over and done with now. So that’s the second (and final) big purchase ticked off the list! The only thing left to do now is little bits and bobs that we still need, and sorting the actual baby room out so that we can stop piling stuff on to the desk, which now looks like a mountain of baby clothes and blankets.

I have a pretty good idea of what needs doing, but Dave said it might be nice to decorate/paint one of the walls… so gonna have a little look around for some inspo!


Week 9 – Day 3

Something strange happened when we were out for dinner with all the family the other evening. I ate two separate things that I thought I would love (cause I normally would have), and they both tasted completely horrible. One of them, a yuzu gel and pickled cabbage totally cut through my mouth the flavour was so strong. Everyone else seemed to think it was fine… Then I tried some of Dave’s lamb racks which had a salt and basil crust, and i wanted to spit it out straight away. Again everyone else thought it was delicious.

This could make eating and choice of food very unpredictable…

On another note, Dave’s away at beamtime until Saturday. It’s the first time that I’ve been by myself since I found out about Justin… I think it’ll go fine, but I do miss having him around :/

Week 4 – Day 3

I (we) told my parents yesterday, and Fredde. And Dave’s parents plus Chris. Everyone seem so happy and full of expectations.

I still don’t have any symptoms besides the tender boobs, and the fact that my brain is not really grasping what is going on. Usually I understand things/problems/solutions by visualising them. And I really can’t picture that that there is something inside of me. Logically I know what’s going on, like I can read about the biology and science, but I conceptually cannot grasp what is happening.

I also don’t feel particularly excited or overcome with emotion. No intense happiness to joy. Just the same… just normal.
