12 fu&*%#g weeks!

Twelve weeks today, people! Can you believe that? I certainly can’t. You know those stories that crop up from time to time – “Woman gives birth in toilets; didn’t even realise she was pregnant!”? Well, in a different life, I could have been that woman. Seriously. The measly collection of symptoms I CAN summon up (tired, headaches, indigestion, vivid dreams, veiny boobs) could so easily have slipped by unnoticed and unattached. Providing I see a baby in there at my scan on Tuesday and not a shrivelled blob of nothingness, I will count myself EXCEEDINGLY lucky indeed!

I had an acupuncture session today. I love me some acupuncture. I’m feeling much calmer about Tuesday now. CalmER, not calm, but I’ll take what I can get. She said my pulses were still slippery and for that one comment alone, today’s session was worth every penny.

In other super exciting but slightly stressful news, jay and I are finally getting moving on our Civil Partnership plans. She asked me to marry her years ago, but I wanted a shotgun wedding, so we waited. And waited. But some time soon I’m going to have a big baby bump (please?) and so we thought we’d better get a move on. We’re both big cry babies and can’t bear the thought of sobbing down the aisle in front of all and sundry, so we’re just inviting our parents to the Registry Office for the signing, followed by a nice meal and a night in a hotel. We’ll hopefully squeeze a week away somewhere local as our honeymoon, then plan to throw a big party in early December for ALL our friends and family. You are of course all invited!

  19. Congrats! I don’t think I started really feeling pregnant until a couple of weeks ago– maybe 14 wks. I definitely feel it now. Can’t wait to see the scan. Congrats on the partnership, too. Hmm– will have to see if I can talk Vanessa into international travel. 🙂 Ha! I think we’re even doing our babymoon in a B&B in our own town.
