So, I snuck a new 'blinkie' onto the side of my blog the other day - did you notice?
I am very happy to announce that Ian, Lily and I are expecting the pitter-patter of little feet in October!
I am now about 13 weeks along, and am happy, excited and nervous all at the same time!!
I havent been blogging or scrapping much since I found out, as I have been really sick (I actually have Hyperemesis gravidarum). I was sick with Lily, but this is something completely different, and definitely something that I wasnt expecting.
One thing I have pleasantly surprised about is, Lily's behaviour. My baby has had to grow up so much in the past couple of months, she understands that Mummy is sick, and so she does her best to be a good girl and take care of me during the day when Ian is at work. Quite often she will tell me to go lay down and come up on the big bed with me and stroke my head or snuggle up behind me and let me have a sleep for a while. It's a lot for a 3 year old to take on, and I feel guilty that she is now the one taking care of me, but hopefully now as I am entering the second trimester I will start to feel better soon, and I can get back to being the Mummy.
One good thing to come out of this, is that it has beyond a doubt proven what a good big sister Lily is going to be when the baby arrives. She is so caring and compassionate already with both me and her 'babies' (her dollies that she now has to carry around everywhere with her).
Here's a piccie of our beautiful baby taken at my 12 week ultrasound (last week):
I think it's AMAZING the detail you can see already, and the baby was only 6.24cm long at that stage.
