Getting real

I'm one of those people who generally believe that if you want to do something then you should just get on and do it.

And I knew that at some point in my pregnancy obviously some things I'd just have to accept I couldn't do.

Up until nearly a fortnight ago I was still climbing ladders to paint walls and generally doing everything as normal.  It's finally hit me that I need to slow down and think more about taking it easy. 

This is not easy to do.  I find it very hard to relax and do nothing.  I can sit on the sofa and to all intents and purposes look relaxed but my mind is in constant overdrive listing all the things I could and should be doing. 

Today is no exception.  Despite some kind of stomach upset which has had me being sick and managing pain all I can think about is getting organised and finishing off jobs that are outstanding. 

Somebody please teach me how to switch off.

At the halfway point

Today was all about the 20 week anomaly scan.  To say I've been looking forward to this is an understatement.  Since I had my dating scan at 13 weeks, all I've wanted to do is see our baby again.

Unsurprisingly a baby of mine and D's is an awkward bugger and we had to do the scan in two stages because baby did NOT want to stay still, making it difficult to get a proper look at it's heart.  Baby is now fondly known as wrigglebum.

Wrigglebum appears to be doing fine, nothing obviously wrong, and growing at normal levels.  I couldn't ask for anything more!  Can't believe that the next time I see wrigglebum may well be in my arms!
