Today was a very happy day. Today I went for my 12 week scan and met our new baby for the first time. Sadly Mr C could not be with me, as he is away with work but everything went fine and I have one little baby all snuggled up in my stomach. It’s not a great photo of the picture but I need to wait until I am at work to scan it.
It was harder than I thought going to the hospital. I just wasn’t prepared for the onslaught of memories from last year and how that would make me feel. Still, this is a new baby, a new pregnancy and it will be a new birth experience. I am older and wiser and I know a lot more this time. It is in my power to have a different experince than last time and that is exactly what I am going to do.
I have felt terrible so far! The nausea has been horrific, all day every day and all night as well. Which isn’t great when I have been up with Piran almost every night since I found out seven weeks ago. Still it is starting to pass and I am beginning to feel better. I am excited. It is weird this time though – I can go almost all day without thinking about it. There just isn’t the time to sit and dream with my feet up anymore.
I showed Piran the scan picture and he tried to eat it. I think that means he is very excited about the new baby. I know we are.
