10 weeks today!

Today we reached the 10 week mark. I must admit that the fatigue and nausea leave me in no doubt that I am pregnant - but in a funny way that is reassuring too. The boys keep asking Mummy why she "bomits" and Harry has decided it is because the baby is bouncing on my tummy. Speaking of Harry he was asking what the baby's name will be and I told him we didn't know yet. He gave me one of those looks kids get and rolled his eyes and said "No Mummy - when she is born I will just say "Hi my name is Harry" and she will tell me her name".

So now the countdown is on for the Nuchal scan where they look for indicators for Down's Syndrome and Neural Tube defects and possibly the sex of the baby. 2 more weeks for that scan and then hopefully some more news.

Thanks to everyone for their messages of support. And I apologise in advance for what will (hopefully) be a very long pregnancy :-)

Hugs,
Lisa

How sweet is our Harry..
I do remember you telling me, after her saw Sorrens tummy, he said,to you on the way home, "Sorrens baby is a boy.." & we have our lovely Ashton..!!!!
The day you go for your scan is special to us, not only for this wonderful new life coming to you & our family, but it's our 42nd wedding anniversary & Scott & Sorrens 3rd..
Sure hope the "Bomiting" settles down soon though..
Love you.. Auntie ( M )

Children ask the darndest of questions, don't they? Remember it well and now have the four grandchildren asking even more complicated questions. phew......

All the best for the scan and all the other tests, but I am feeling very calm about this. Seems to me that this child comes as an unexpected blessing not only to you and your immediate family but also to all of your extended family and things are as they should be.

Yep, the "morning sickness" is a bugger. Had it for the whole 9 months with my first but I think the worst was with my fifth and the last. No "morning sickness", as such, but just feeling so so ill and debilitated. Photos taken within weeks of Chad's birth show me as a scarecrow figure but I kept on doing what we mothers always do, even when support is as scant as it was in my day.
So looking forward to welcoming this new little babe into our family.Lots of xxx as always, Auntie Catherine.

He was really fascinated with Sorren's pregnant belly - it will be interesting to see how he responds when my baby belly gets bigger.

Dear Auntie Catherine,
We have hit the questions phase with avengeance! Mitchell seems to respond to every statement with "why?". Harry is really fascinated with the idea of a baby in Mummy's tummy, whereas Mitch is non-plussed.

Keep telling myself that the nausea, vomiting and fatigue are just a good sign that the hormones are doing their job. But hoping they leave me alone soon :-)

Hugs,
Lisa xx
