Hi all, So its been 3 happy days since we got our positive and what has been going on? well apart from the over the top happiness in our house I now think my beautiful cat has one serious problem with me! Yes you heard right, ever since Tuesday (and actually gardener guy reckons even before that) she has had the shits with me. We have come to the conclusion she knows something fishy is going on and she is not happy. She looks at me in disgust, as if to say "how dare you bring someone else into this house", she has been giving out extra swipes lately and seems to be more in love with gardener guy and less in love with me. Soon I am just going to be a bit fat moaning woman sitting on the couch all alone eating burgers while her and gardener guy are cuddled up together giving me evil glares.
On other news, well really there isn't any, as far as symptoms go I am still getting the cramps on and off and occasionally I will get some weird twinges, I also feel worse at night, I guess its just after a long day. Last night I feel asleep on the couch and woke up feeling horrible, was hard to drag myself to bed. Apart from that theres nothing major as yet. No sore boobs, no nausea, but I guess that will come so I shouldn't really wish that too soon. I am still using the pessaries until I'm told its safe to stop, I should get told when I can stop these after my blood test tomorrow. The pessaries are becoming more and more messy, so not attractive!
I'm a little worried about the blood test results tomorrow, what if my HCG levels aren't rising well? I'm sure all will be fine, its just the first little hurdle to get over. I should get a 7 week scan date tomorrow too, so that's really exciting, for once it will be a scan to see something exciting instead of a whole heap of eggs. I am going to try and get a meeting with my friends midwife (not sure if I will do this before or after the scan, will ask my nurse what she thinks), but my friends midwife is meant to be great so will try and secure her. I have been reading all sorts of weird books and some are actually damn freaky! there seems like so much stuff to remember and get on top of, and I wont even go into some of the birthing pictures I have seen! let me save that for another post!
Gardener guy is great, he wakes every morning with a smile on his face and happy to go to work, this was just not the case before, things were getting on top of both of us, life was not fun for us, so to feel the way we do now is beyond great.
I am trying to hold myself back from going absolutely berserk and shop like I'm expecting a baby any day, I just so want to buy stuff!! I will try not to buy any major things like the cot, moses basket, change table, high chair or the buggy for a while yet and just satisfy my need to shop by getting small bits and pieces. I was in the supermarket yesterday and couldn't resist buying some nappies, funny aye, I figured it doesn't hurt to stock up, I don't want to get my baby home and run out of nappies and have to wrap their ass in a plastic bag now do it! the cat wouldn't be the only one hating me after that.
That's all for now ladies (and any men reading, you are allowed to read, I pity you for reading all this, but good on you), till tomorrow results I'm off to try and beg for a little love and attention off my cat, I don't like my chances though, animals can sense things right? she is not impressed, well I'm not impressed, who will win, a stroppy old cat with serious confusion as to weather she is actually a cat or a human or a stroppy old pregnant woman who is pretty sure she will start to look like some kind of wild animal in the coming months? hmmm..... lets be honest, the cat will probably win, paws down.
