Being fabulous

In the last week or so (since I've been reading up a bit on 'my condition') I have decided that for the next while at least, no... scrap that... for ever I need to be FABULOUS. If my waist is going to start THICKENING in 2 weeks time (I will not cry, I will not cry, I will not cry - I will not lament the hours and hours I've spent at bootcamp waking up at 5am to get in shape. I won't.)then I may as well make full use of my best outfits in the meantime. The poor Band. I am looking HOT but for the first time in 3 years of marriage, the mojo is on the down low. haha.. i must actually make an effort. Usually I'm chasing the guy round the house. haha. joking people. But ya... hold me to it, ok?

last week wasn't great for me, but this week I am feeling hundreds again. It's weird! No nausea. No headaches. No heartburn. Not much peeing. The awful irony is that as soon as the bad symptoms aren't there you start mini-stressing that perhaps something's happened.

Also... aren't I supposed to be super emotional? I'm not. Not at all. I'm my usual droll self. In fact I don't think I had thought about it once today until I started with this post. I'm not going to start all the "does that make me a crap mom?" crap. If I do ever start with the Mom Guilt, shoot me.

Doing well....except that infernal yawning

Seriously, it's embarassing. I sit through meeting yawning my head off!
(Ok, that's not necessarily a completely new development...)

So this weekend I told my best mate. She is now driving me mad. Telling me all this stuff like I must keep my hand on my tummy - the baby can sense it, and should I really be eating white bread? and don't tan on your stomach - you're an incubator yuo know.

Between her and my mom ("One day when you're a mother, then you'll understand" AAARGH) they are driving me insane.

They know

well my folks FINALLY foned me yesterday afternoon. There was much skrieking from my mom and my dad said all the right things, but i'm sure he must be shell shocked. I am his baby after all!

Today I told my brothers and my uber cute neice... she then told me brother - her dad - that "Caz is having a baby so that I can play with it and it can come live by us".

Sure kid, if you're willing to do nappies...

Anyway, last night was a hen's night. It began with sushi and cocktails and the guests included some of the most cunning sleuths i know. Eyebrows shot up and eyes popped out of heads when I declined ordering sushi so i had to make up some half-arsed story about over indulging in sushi over the weekend (which actually is absolutely true) and moaned about a headache (also absolutely true). But still, I could see some of the little brains ticking over time.

I have discovered this about being pregnant:
* Being knocked up makes me thirsty. I have to pee in the middle of the night a lot. It sucks!
* People hug me a WHOLE LOT MORE than I realised before my boobs decided to be UBER sore
* I feel mildly hungover most of the time
* Your life is suddenly viewed in terms of weeks instead of days, months or years
* I actually might like fruit

ah man

So i just spoke to the post office re: telegram to my folks and it will be delivered this afternoon while i'm in a meeting with Helen Zille's people.

The whole way through the meeting I'm going to be wanting to answer my phone.


Well check how I'm repeating myself in these posts. Crikey. The whole pregnancy brain thing has started already. Yesterday i walked into the men's bathroom by mistake. I've only worked here for 2 flippen years!!!!

3 days since

So it's 3 days since I found out.

Yesterday I went to see a doc. Just wanted to double triple check that I am actually pregnant and then also ask all the questions and stuff.

She did a scan! (Didn't expect that!!)
I actually could see a little heartbeat!! The doc reckons the heartbeat only started yesterday or the day before. Cool hey? The baby is 3mm long. Shame.

So that was all quite exciting.

My Band bought me a present yesterday...

How frikken cute is that?

One thing that sucks is that my folks stiiiill don't know. See I sent both sets of grandparents a telegram coz I thought it would be a cool way for them to find out. But telegrams are not what they used to be!! They take a few days to get there.

Anyway today i have a headache and feel awful. It sucks and my cheeks are all red. But that babygro makes it worth it!

So it appears that I am pregnant!!!!!

How did that happen??? No, seriously!? We've been pretty careful lately, but apparently one slipped past the goalie or something!

So this is where we are:

My period was late, but lately (haha) it always is. But I was feeling a bit off and my boobs were really sore. Monday night we took a test.

EEK, it appeared to be positive. WHAT???
Took 2 more and another the next morning. YUP!! Affirmative. Knocked up. Bun in the oven. Preggers.

Went to a doc today and she actually did a scan - I saw a minute little bambino... 3mm in length and even a HEARTBEAT. I am about 6 weeks along, due date = mid sept.
