Big News!!

I've been a horrendous blogger lately, but I can finally reveal part of the reason why! Yesterday I went to have my first ultrasound scan, and I am 13 weeks pregnant. We've been keeping it quiet, but it's been difficult as I've been sooooo exhausted all the time, it's been hard even to keep up with the day to day stuff, so all extras including the blog have kinda fallen by the wayside. However! Now I'm out of the first trimester, I'm starting to feel lots better and more energetic, so I'm hoping to get back on track soon.
 
Don't worry, I don't plan to turn the blog into baby central. I only bought my first baby book the other day, and I've yet to read it properly - a lot of them just seem to try to freak you out with big lists of all the things that could go wrong. I'm a natural hypochondriac, I don't need any help!! Currently I'm just wading my way through piles of coupons for free bags of nappies, which is great but now I have to try and find somewhere to put them all for the next 6 months! 

Currently my life is a pile of hospital and midwife appointments, baby knitting patterns, and emails from baby clubs. I've been doing a lot of re-reading, and I think it'll probably stay that way for a while as so much else is changing at the moment, I sort of need something comforting I think! I've already started expanding my library of children's literature, and I SO love that I have yet another excuse to buy books! If anybody has any suggestions of useful books (either for me, or for the baby!), I'd be really grateful! :-)

  1. Congratulations!! Can I say that I saw it coming when you posted about your "big week" on the hiatus post?

    Don't freak out with all those books and stuff, for I can tell what happened to my cousins, no book helps when they are supposed to.

    Congrats again :D
