THIS POST WAS WRITTEN ON WEDNESDAY, 29TH AUGUST, AFTER WE FOUND OUT WE WERE PREGNANT WITH BABY NUMBER TWO. I MADE A PRIVATE BLOGGER ACCOUNT TO DOCUMENT MY FEELINGS IN THOSE EARLY WEEKS AS NO-ONE (BARRING OUR TWO CLOSEST FRIENDS) KNEW THAT WE WERE EXPECTING, AND I NEEDED AN OUTLET FOR MY EMOTIONS. YOU CAN FIND PART ONE OF THIS MINI-SERIES HERE, PART TWO HERE AND PART THREE HERE.
All is well!!!
I am measuring exactly the same as my LMP would suggest – 8 weeks 2 days. The EPAU either got things a little wrong (which is not uncommon considering it was so very early, a couple of mm here or there and you’re already out a week) or our Sprout has had a major growth spurt.
Either way — HURRAH!! It was so lovely to see Sprout’s little heartbeat fluttering away again (and hear it through the ultrasound pattering away at 156bpm!), and I feel a million times better about this pregnancy now. I am finally excited. Finally accepting the fact that we are going to be a family of four!! Eek!!
I was given three pictures of the scan. There isn’t a whole lot to see right now, but it was lovely to know that all is growing as it should and everything is where it should be.
The quality isn’t fantastic either… I took a picture with my iPhone in bad lighting. But I’m too excited to get all of this recorded, so right now I really couldn’t care any less! The important thing is – all is well.
I’m finally looking forward to sharing the news with our parents and Simon. I’ve reconsidered the idea of inviting everyone out for my Dads birthday this weekend… With everything going on I’d forgotten that mine and Shauns anniversary is coming up in a couple of weeks (d’oh)! That is a much more legitimate reason to get everyone together in one place, so I think we’ll probably go out for a meal and break the news there. I have one idea of how to do it but will hold off writing about it in case I get any further inspiration.
In fact, I think I’ll go searching for ideas now!
WE’RE HAVING A BABY!!!! YEAH!!!
