I’ve been spending too long trying to figure out how to start this post after such a long absence so here it goes:
We’re expecting!!! Yay!!!
The whole thing is very exciting and scary at the same time. Maybe because we’ve never prepared ourselves for the whole having a baby thing and also, I didn’t really want to get my hopes up. A friend once told me that you can actually base your chances of successfully falling pregnant on how long your own mum took to conceive you. Well, my mum tried for 3 years so I’ve always assumed that it would take us a long time before I’d actually fell pregnant when we do decide to try. I figured that there was no point trying to get too excited too soon if we’re just gonna try for months and months and months! But here we are, feeling quite out of our depth and realising that we have a deadline to read up on as much as we can about taking care of a baby before the baby pops out!
I’m currently just past the 3 months mark so the baby is about the size of a lemon at the moment! Thankfully, I’ve been feeling quite good! No morning sickness or cravings – everything is just ticking along swimmingly but I have been getting tired very easily. I get home from work now and I jump straight into bed and I don’t leave until I have to get up to work again the next day!
