So, as promised, here is the news I've been keeping since my birthday. I am pregnant! I've been very excited, but also hesitant to tell people, which I think is understandable. But we had our dating scan this afternoon, and although we're still in our 10th week, N and I feel confident enough about this pregnancy to finally share it with the world. WE'RE HAVING OUR SECOND BABY!
I haven't been blogging as much because of this. It seems like all that's been on my mind lately is this new pregnancy and the anticipation of a new baby. Will it be a boy or a girl? How will Elliot cope with a reduction in attention? What on earth are we going to do with all the stuff currently living in what eventually will be Second-Child's nursery?
Here are the bits most people like to hear about: the due date is 1 April, 2008. No, I have not had any morning sickness at all. Or nauseua. I have been constantly hungry and have had a few cravings/food aversions. Cravings: oranges, cold water. Food aversions: chocolate, icecream, some dairy products. I have a real on/off relationship with cheese at the moment. I've been sleeping nonstop. I nap when Elliot naps. I would prefer a girl, but wouldn't be disappointed at all if we end up with two boys. It's too early to have shortlisted any names. We're probably only going to have the two children in total. We'll be scanning the ultrasound photo at some stage if anyone is interested.
I think that sums pretty much everything up. I assure you semi-interesting blogging will return, as long as no one minds constant new-baby-posts. I'm really happy.
