So, yesterday after I finished work, we went over to my Dad’s house and gave him the news. My boy was expecting him to be super excited, I was expecting him to not be…I think we got somewhere in between. When I told him, I had a nervous laugh while saying the words “I’m pregnant”, my Dad’s response, “you’re not?!” then asked if it was good news and if we were happy etc, so obviously we said yes, though I think he was more convincing than I was. Had my dad tease me that I might have twins, which everyone keeps saying, I however, am not amused by this thought!
Finally told my Dad!
So I had my booking appointment the other day – still not had any tests of any variety done, which I just find so odd, I’m not surprised so many people get to 12 weeks and then find out bad news. I did get given something I have to take to the hospital to have my blood tests done, I get the results in the post. Then she sent off the request for 12 week scan, with the double test for downs syndrome, I wasn’t really sure what to do about that, but I guess it’s better to know than to worry. I knew she was going to ask, yet I still got all worried, panicked and a bit upset when she did. Anyway, I also get the date for that through the post!
We were given a huge pack to go away with, I had to go into town – I am starting to find my clothes slightly uncomfortable, and my suit definitely doesn’t fit, but needed smart clothes for the next day for a huge meeting in London – so left the pack in the Boy’s car, which I still haven’t collected, and he still hasn’t brought in. I am hopefully going for my blood test tomorrow though, so hopefully it won’t be too long until I get my results. Was also given a pot to pee in to take with me next time I go to the midwife, which is the 16 week appointment, which I made, at that appointment you get to listen to the baby’s heartbeat, which is going to be emotional! The Boy couldn’t do the first appointment she suggested, so we are going the week after, so I will be 16+5 which is apparently better anyway. I guess it will be easier to find the heartbeat etc because it will be stronger.
