Hi everyone,
Well its been a long long time since i posted in here! Facebook is so much easier. original.gif
Things are plodding along here.... feel like my pregnancy is very "textbook" sometimes i feel different symtoms which im not sure are pregnancy related, then i read my app and that week it always says the same symptoms i have been feeling!!!!
Im very excited that im having a boy... until i went shopping and felt a little sad about all the beautiful girls clothes! I think mostly i was worried about having a girl as my mother and I have such a poor relationship Im worried i would have that with my own daughter. So feel relief at the fact the first ones a boy, and also feel like there is no pressure now as men always want a son... would love a pidgen pear though so next time lets hope for a girl!

I wont say Im enjoying much about being pregnant. Whilst its nice to feel the baby move but i feel constant worry soemthing will go wrong. I also feel like im losing control of my body and losing my self- as everyone just wants to talk about the pregnancy, how im looking etc all the time!

Cant wait to get through xmas and then just focus on spending money on the baby. Whilst im dying to meet my little one, I am glad there is so much time for me to prepare. SO much to buy for one little person!
