Not much has really happened in the last week or so to warrant writing much so this will be a quick one.
I have a date for my first hospital appointment – 4th May. By then I will be 17 weeks so I assume I’ll get an ultrasound and stuff. I really can’t wait! Maria, my next-door-neighbour, said that when she had the first ultrasound it was the first time it really seemed real. It was very emotional. It’s quite good timing really for us as we go away on holiday to Fiji the next week. I was talking to my Mum (or should I just call her ‘Nana’) last night and she suggested we go to the hospital before the actual date so we can get our bearings and work out where to park and then where to go in the hospital. I’ve never been to the Royal Brisbane before so we think this is a very good idea. My appt is for 8am and Maria said it was much better to go in the morning than the afternoon. She had to wait over an hour sometimes if her appt was in the arvo.
Mum and I were tossing up some names last night too. I’m not going to share them with you all yet, we’ve got to keep some surprises. She is by herself at the moment as Dad’s having a ‘boys’ week with my brother in Adelaide. They are currently watching the V8 supercars and having a fantastic time from all accounts.
I have really struggled this week not to tell the girls at work that I’m pregnant. I think I’m only going to last another week or so then I’m going to have to tell them. I’ll probably wait til after Easter and tell them then. That will mean I’m 12 weeks so that will be a good time.
Well that’s really all I’ve got this time. Hopefully something interesting will happen soon so I can make this more appealing.
