One hand on a golf club, the other on a tennis racket. That's what Phil has decided will happen on Day 1. "It's definitely going to be an athlete", he says as I roll my eyes with a smile. I'm just hoping for 10 fingers and 10 toes and a killer smile!!
We're having a little whipper snapper and are both over the moon! I'm due on the 20th January, which makes me almost 13 weeks pregnant and neither of us have got the patience to wait another 6 months to meet our little one. I should stop saying little. I'm quite sure it's going to be a gigantore newborn considering I'm 6ft and Phil 6'4". That makes my nether regions recede with raw fear, the prospect of pushing a watermelon through a pinhole. Sweet jesus. Think it's best to just brush that small physically impossible nightmare of a prospect to the side for now. Yep. Officially pushed aside.
Highlight of the pregnancy so far?
I've got a great rack. Lovin' it.
My all too frequent and intense friendship with the good ol' porcelain bowl. Enough with the nausea already. Enooouuuughhhh!
So there you go. Big, life-changing, superb news for us Holmewoods. Ecstatic doesn't quite describe it. No doubt this blog will now become a way to document and share the highs and lows of the adventure ahead!!
A new chapter, with me, Phil and "The Athlete" (cue eye roll and cheeky smile)....Bring it on!
ps. How cute is the little hand in the pic?! I think it's holding a microphone up, singing along to Adele, as I do so often. Popstar in the making. Snap.
pps. How good is technology? So amazing to see the little one moving around and kicking its legs. Incredible to see. Especially when it's only 6.1cm long!! ;)
