So here we are. 2 days of being pregnant :O
That’s pretty ridiculous.
I’m finding it hard not to get carried away – and I know Jonny is too. I’m sitting here, looking at strollers and car seats on Which. I nearly bought a baby blanket earlier but stopped myself. I don’t have the money to just buy things. I need to make sure I’m buying essentials.
12 weeks seems like such a long way away, but I know it isn’t really. I’m just.. as I’m a natural worrier, I kinda need proof. Seeing 2 tests saying I’m pregnant is all very well but until I can see/feel baby in there, I’m not going to believe it.
We’re going to tell our parents and siblings on Monday. I’m struggling to keep it from them now. I know it’s something for Jonny and I to enjoy but I think we’ll both explode if we hide it until 12 weeks. I think it’ll be easier for us to share our excitement a bit.
He’s also seemingly finding it difficult to understand that aside from close family, no-one else will be told until a lot closer to 12 weeks (unless we have to say something sooner). I think I need his mom to get on board with that. I’m just so worried he’s going to tell people and then we’ll lose baby. If he can hold out until 8 weeks that would be good… by then we should have more certainty. I bought him a book. I’m hoping it will answer a lot of his questions and stop him getting so excited about it.
Interestingly, I think I have a sort of morning sickness already. In the morning my stomach feels really uneasy and it happens again in the evenings. I think it’s starting to creep back now (have a funny taste in the back of my throat). I’m also wondering if I have my first craving. Last night we had pizza and I swear it was the most amazing thing i’ve eaten in a long while. Nothing else seems to be close. Eating crisps and sandwiches is so difficult.
I’m trying to stay healthy – limiting myself to 2 cups of tea (so thats about 150mg of caffeine a day), then if I need an extra one for any reason, I won’t be way over my limit. I also really need to try and eat more fruit and veg – I’m taking vitamins though and have ordered some pregnancy ones too so hopefully my body will be covered. My main aim is to drink more water. Usually I live off of tea and milk when i’m home, but I’m trying to do more water today (so far, 1 glass drunk, aiming for one more today)
I will start swimming again regularly after I’ve told mum (I think if she and i were swimming up and down alone for a while I would struggle not to tell her).
So that’s me. I definitely feel different. Less cramps today which is good (yesterday evening was killer).
