Hello, hello!

Hi folks! Sorry it's been a while since I've posted anything. I've had an awful week because my first baby, my doggy baby, ran away and he was lost for 5 days. I was soooo sad and miserable. I couldn't sleep (sorry peanut) and had really begun to think the worst when I finally got the call that he was found. Anyway, all is well now and my family is complete again, yeaaaay!!! Happy days. If you want to read the exciting saga of Techie's great escape to a posh resort in the jungle (ay ay ay), you can visit his blog. I am now free to enjoy my pregnancy again!!

Peanut has started moving about quite a bit at night. Sometimes it's quite startling, but generally just feels like there is an alien presence within, hehe. Peanut's dad managed to feel it when peanut gave my uterus a particularly good wallop the other night. It's exciting to feel that it's really there and that I'm really pregnant, because sometimes i just feel fat :-)

Peanut in the Jungle - II

On a hot Saturday, Peanut's dad decided to treat me to a trip to the Blue Hole, which is an area where the river runs through a cave and it's really cold. Next time we should take swimming gear! (Luckily I was wearing a skirt, so I could paddle).

Please note the increasing boobage, which I am very proud of. That's an un-padded bra people!!!

Ok, so this is a less flattering image of what pregnancy's doing to me, and more specifically my ass!
That's okay, because peanut's dad's is about the same size as mine, and he's not pregnant.
We spent a nice time paddling our toes in the water, feeding the fish cookie bars and watching the birds fly about overhead. This pic (above) is peanut's dad undressing in the jungle, changing into shorts so he can paddle. Next time we go I'm wearing a bikini!!! (just the top haha - I wouldn't want to scare the wildlife).

Peanut @ 19 Weeks....and tentatively a GIRL!

Almost 5 months pregnant!! Peanut's 19 week scan was yesterday, and all is well so far. I've gained 3.3lbs in the last 4 weeks, so that's not too bad. Blood pressure is normal, and everything else seems fine. The baby's heart was ticking nicely and he/she was sleeping and twitching. I made peanut's dad have his blood pressure taken, and his is fine too so I know I'm not stressing him out too much hehe.

Doc looked at the baby's bits and pieces and couldn't find a willy, so he says it is very likely a GIRL but that we will have to confirm at the next visit in 4 weeks. Still, exciting to know what it MIGHT be :-) Don't all go buying pink yet! :-)

P.S. I have NO CLUE what the scan is showing...head? Legs? Butt? hehe
