A week after I found out my Up The Duff status, I think it is finally starting to sink in and feel real.
Part of that may have to do with the million pregnancy tests I have done, the last of which was a digital one which tells you how long it has been since conception. I did one of those last week and then did one tonight, and the one I did tonight shows I am further along than I was last week. So I am finally feeling convinced that baby is growing and safe and everything is ok!
The realness may also be related to the fact that I have started to feel queasy. Up until now I have felt completely fine. Yesterday my stomach felt a bit niggly. Tonight I feel gross. Yucky and nauseous and nothing I can think of makes it better. Eating, not eating, peppermint tea… I just feel a bit yuck.
Here’s hoping it doesn’t last long or get worse!
I told my mum a couple of nights ago. She was ecstatic!! So now my man and my mum and my sisters know. Seeing as it’s so early days, I want to try and wait a bit longer before it becomes common knowledge. I just know I’m not going to last until the 12 week mark though… it’s going to burst out sooner rather than later 😛
I can’t wait for the 12 week scan, which will probably be at the end of January. Hopefully that will make it seem that much more real – and I will know that bubby is well and safe!
