I am ecstatic and scared out of my mind all at the same time. I found out I was pg on Monday 28th July - our 2nd wedding anniversary! I actually took the test at 12:10am - yes AM because I couldn't wait any longer. I was only 12DPO but had been feeling quite sick since Saturday morning and very crampy.
I'm now officially 4 weeks and 6 days. My EDD is 3 April 04.
This is our second child altho I have been pg 4 times now. Sadly, my last 2 pgs ended in m/c but I do have a wonderful 3 year old DS. I want this child so much - please God let this pg continue to a wonderful conclusion in 8 months time.
I haven't had any spotting this time around - which I did with my last 2 pgs. I have been feeling quite sick and have some marked food aversions right now - particularly to cheese and fish - not great when you consider I really need that protein for the building of a new life right now! Hopefully I can make it up in some other form - I just have to read the name of a particular food and it makes me feel queasy!
My boobs are sore but not swollen particularly - with DS they became huge within 1 day of AF being overdue but this time around they are just sore and sensitive. This suits me right now - gives me a few extra weeks before I need to get myself a new bra! With DS I went from a pre-pregnant 34AA to a 38EE!!!!!!! Yep, thats right - I transformed from Nicole Kidman to Pamela Anderson in just 6 short months! By month 6 I was still wearing 34B and went to get myself measured. Before DS I had hardly worn a bra at all so I had no idea really about what constituted "large" breasts. Anyway, the lady in John Lewis was amazed and couldn't help but laugh!! I hated those damn bras - they were like family sized tents - I dread getting back into those this pg - but at the same time CAN'T WAIT!!! At least it will mean all is well
To my little BB2 (Baby Boeken 2) I just want to say how excited I am that you are growing inside me. Your big brother is excited too - he keeps kissing my tummy to give you a kiss! He is also having a sympathy pregnancy! Your papa is also very excited about you - he is taking good care of me and doing lots of housework when he comes home from a long day at work - our doctor says I need to rest to keep you safe and well. Love you so much darling - always, Mama.
