(can you tell that we're very serious people??)
Woohoo another week is almost been and gone.
I won't lie, this one has been a little more uncomfortable than other recent weeks. I've really felt like I'm being stretched these past few days, like this kid is fighting to make more room! The funny thing is that although I grumble a bit, I don't really mind that much. If it's room that my little darling needs then room it shall get and I'll just suck it in and deal with the discomfort!
We had our 5 month midwife check up this week and everything seems to be going great. We were a little taken back when, after she had listened for the heartbeat (which still sounds like a little race horse to me), she blurted out,
'It's a boy!'.
"What?! Really?!", we gasped.
"No, not really, next time I'll probably tell you it's a girl".
What a mean trick to play! Ha ha either way I am still utterly convinced that it's a girl. Only time will tell though.
This week we have also started to think about all the things we are going to need soon. Yikes there's so much to think about! And how come nobody told us how expensive kids are?? I mean $600 plus just for re-usable nappies? That's crazy! We better stop eating out so much and start putting more of that into our savings quick smart. It has been pretty adorable seeing Nic start obsessing over prams and bassinets though. I can't tell you how lucky I feel to have a guy who is so excited to become a father.
Oh by the way do you follow Junkaholique? They just had their adorable little baby girl. She's half English, half Japanese and is going to be a stunner for sure!
P.S I had a real wardrobe crisis for this weeks shoot. The dresses that I had in mind for it... didn't fit! I totally underestimated that everything, not just my belly, would expand! Then at the last minute I remembered that my mum still had some dresses in her cupboard that my grandmother made for when she was pregnant with me. So I snuck up and grabbed some, and am hoping that I don't get in trouble for going through her things while she is away!
P.P.S I need a haircut!
