That is so very odd. I posted here last night and my message is not here. How very strange.
Thank you for checking in on me Rachel (wow cannot believe that you are so close behind me) and Carolyn for remembering when you have lots going on yourself
We got through floods, sleet and snow to get to Birmingham yesterday is the early hours of the morning. There was no way that I was not getting there again. Was awake from 3am anyway.
My sister is super calm amongst all the storm. We had 1st scan appointment of day so reduced waiting time meant less stress for me. Her protein level is slightly high so they will check that out but they seemed pretty relaxed. Hope this is not an issue for my sister.
All is well. Baby looked fine. Was moving around quite a lot. No issues at all. So very very relieved. Loved fact that you could see all the fingers and toes.
We are having a little boy.
I’d love either but I think deep down Mike will be very happy that his surname lives on and also that he will be able to go to the park and play football. We have a Spurs fan in the making already! Will just have to control my desire to buy cute pink outfits and give our son a complex!!!! Mike referred to him as his son on the way home and it melted my heart.
In tears all afternoon. Not sure why. Other than stress of last 4 years all hitting me like a train.
Feel happier and less stressed today than I have done for weeks/months – no make that years.
Thank you for all your support and friendship to get me this far.
Love and luck to you all.
