Thanks Ladies

11wk +1 day

Today I'm paying for working such a long day yesterday and not getting enough sleep last night. It seems I now need at least 12 hours sleep a night to function the next day and not throw up all morning. I am feeling better this afternoon though- well its 4.30pm but at least i'm feeling better.

I'm feeling good otherwise, I'm loving my new fingernails - they're growing so long! Up until today i'd not puked since sunday = two days off

We might be telling DF's parents this weekend, they're on holiday at the moment but get back on friday. Since we had the scan at the weekend and everythings looking good he's keen to tell them asap. Secretly I think he's really worried about them finding out by accident - not sure how this would happen but nevermind lol. I'm not sure we'll do anyting special if we do tell them, they're not that sort of people. I just hope we get a better reaction than we did when we told them we were engaged - it was just 'oh right, congratulations, does that mean you're actually going to get married'. This all stems from the fact that DF's eldest sister got engaged one christmas, failed to mention it to anyone and hasnt mentioned the 'm' word since - lol weird I know.

I'm getting more and more excited about buying baby things - although I feel like I have lots to learn. We went to a country fair on sunday and met up with our friends who are also expecting (she's 8 weeks ahead of me) and they were chatting about buggies / prams and there is soooo much to consider ...urgh..Cant i just get one that I can pick up and that looks nice

Best of luck telling DF's family. Maybe it will go way better than expected and they'll freak out and it will be wonderful!

Hey, small successes with puke-free days right? I'm sorry you are so exhausted still, but you know what they say about nausea and exhaustion early on -- a girl!

So excited to keep reading about your journey!

Thanks ladies!

11 +6 weeks

Pretty short update for today as i'm tired and its nearly bedtime (yep its 7.30pm here and nearly bedtime lol).

I have my 12 week scan tomorrow and although we had a good scan at 11wk 4 days I'm pretty nervous / anxious. Any good thoughts / vibes for tomorrow will be appreciated. Our appointment is at 2.30pm!

We did end up telling DF's parents and two of his sisters on Friday evening. We got the underwhelmed response I expected, dont get me wrong, I know they're happy for us but they just weren't excited. Which is kind of disappointing. However, in more exciting news - We'll be telling my family this Sunday and I expect a LOT more excitement from them


Oh and the most important thing.....I just had some pepperoni pizza for dinner, it was soooo yummy. It took me an hour to eat it but so worth it

That is a little disappointing to get an underwhelmed response. I cant wait to hear how telling your fam goes.

Good luck at your appointment tomorrow! I will be sending positive thoughts your way and I cant wait to hear how it goes. Have a great nights sleep I cant wait for your update tomorrow!!!

I'm sorry that DF's family wasn't more excited about the baby. Hopefully they will come around. I'm glad that your family will be more excited. I remember when we announced our engagement, my DH's mom was really excited and happy, but my own mom wasn't. I don't think people understand how hurtful that kind of stuff can be.

Sorry his families reaction kind of sucked. When we told DH's uncle and his girlfriend we were engaged she actually said- oh......no........- yea...Not the kind of reaction that we had hoped for >:/

I will be thinking of you tomorrow and sending good thoughts your way!

Sorry about DH's families reaction... that's pretty much how all of our grandparents reacted.

I'm excited to hear about your families reaction -- I know you've been looking forward to telling them for awhile now!

Congrats on eating the yummy pizza! I'm finally starting to get to where I can eat a meal in a regular amount of time... I totally get how it takes an hour!!!

Aww I'm sorry they didn't react the way they really should have! Hopefully your folks make up for it

Our stroller choice was easy. Woody pushed one in a store, threw reme in it, pushed it again and said "this is the one. 55lbs in it and it moves like butter". happend to be one on our registry already. LOL

12wks 2days

Oh yes..the eagle eyed of you will notice that my dates seeme to have skipped a couple of days. This is because after today's scan they put my DD forward two days, I'm now due on the 23rd March 2014.

Today's scan went great and promised, I have now started my grad journal. First entry made and lots of pictures from today's scan to follow

I wanted to thank all you ladies for your support and encouragement and I promise to stalk you from grads. I'll miss you
