Hi everyone :) Having a crazy stress week with funeral arrangements and family arriving from overseas... forgot to even look for a new thread!
Happy (late) birthday Shiloh & Serenyd!!
So nice to hear people talking about the things they love about being pregnant :) This week the focus for us has been on anything but, so it's really good to forget about everything else for a minute and just think about things like this... I just loved being pregnant the first time round with my son, but I was so much younger and had nothing that ached back then LOL.. So far I just love that IVF worked, and I can't bring myself to resent any part of it because it was a bit of a journey to get here. I'm sure that will change as time goes by though haha..
I've also completely cut out real coffee, but have been drinking decaf, just for the ritual of having a cuppa with DH. It's pretty awful to tell the truth though :) I have no deli meats unless they are hot (like on a pizza) and no soft cheeses. Apparently broccoli is now a complete no-no for pregnant women! I'm so glad to have that excuse - I hate it LOL
Had my downs screening blood test today, but have to wait til Monday to get the result, as the funeral is Friday. Expecting to be high risk (I was with my son) so it's more how high the risk is that will be my concern, rather than if.
