EXCITING NEWS PART 2

So I have been a little under the weather, sick, nauseous and tired and cranky and moody and tired and cranky. I have been unable to follow a thought to the end of a sentence, my brain has turned to mush and I am hungry ALL THE TIME! I am teary one minute and rage filled next.

We have been keeping a big big secret from everyone:
 Yep. You guessed right.


I am pregnant.



Due to hatch in Spring- (early October.)



I forgot that saying the words "I am pregnant" will make most women particularly those with children burst into tears and squeal at the same time.

I forgot how people really are genuinely excited for us.  (So many people have said I really hoped you would have another)

I forgot that going to that first ultrasound at 12 weeks -ish is way more emotional than I remembered as it is proof  there really is a baby in there and its got 10 fingers and toes we could see them!!

I forgot that feeling of having to tell people that you are pregnant when they have tried and tried for so long and your heart breaks for them and you wish they could be pregnant with you.

It was nice to be able to tell people our news last weekend when their was so much sadness I didn't even mind people touching my belly and crying.

Yes, Busy is beside herself. The baby will apparently be: sleeping in her bed,  she will  hold it all the time but may let Grandma hold it for a little while when she comes to visit . Busy will change its nappy if it is a girl, she "doesn't  know about boy bits" and she will come to the hospital when it comes out. ( NO!)

Look at those little toes up there. We are excited to be getting some off those ( and the rest of ) in our house. I bought this when I found out and when it arrived Busy and I made ooooorrrrrrhhhhhh noises at it's tiny size. It is so little.

Exciting times ahead. x

  12. I'd hoped so when you were quiet on the blight front because I know how hard it is to stay awake... But then you were featured on etsy and I thought oh bugger it is just cushions keeping her busy... And then I just saw that photo on that instagram thingie and without reading anything I knew. My heart leaped and I thought "finally Leonie's fertility pin cushion" worked its charms. I am so excited for you because reading between all the lines I know how much you want this, how your heart and womb have yearned for this. Congratulations just doesn't seem to cut it because I want to say so much more.
    ...and now I will go back and actually read your post. Tears are welling in my eyes. I am so happy for you.

  29. Congratulations! I'm just on the other side of this equation, with a five week old, and already hopeful that it won't be the last time! Cohen loves to hold Emerson, help bath her and pat her, though it isn't always gently!
    Wishing you all the very best, hope you feel more normal soon. xx

  30. That is such exciting news! And Busy sounds like she's going to be an amazing big sister - her grandma must be pleased to know that she'll be able to hold the baby when she's there!!

    Hope that 2nd semester energy burst hits you soon and the nausea goes away.

    Yippee - a baby ChunkyCheffie!!

  68. Oh lovely lovely Cath!!!!!!
    I have been rather absent from blogland in recent months and didn't find out about your pregnancy until last weekend when I went on a crafty weekend with Cindy (and some other folk too). Cindy mentioned that you are expecting and I couldn't be more thrilled for you. Hope you are feeling well and not too overwhelmed.
    Much love,
    Andi xx
