An Introduction

Well I promised you all an explanation for my recent behaviour and here it is.

For the last few weeks, I've been rather unwell, mostly in the afternoons and evenings. Unfortunately there's not much I or anyone can do about it as it's down to those wonderful things we know as hormones. (And hayfever.)

Lovelies, I'm almost 10 weeks pregnant. David and I are very very excited about it all and yesterday we got a first look at our little Bean, who seems to be doing very well, jumping around in there. We saw a beating heart, little fingers and arms and kicking legs and then Bean got camera shy and gave us his (her?) back.

So, here's introducing my upside-down little Bean :)



(Fingers crossed that my anything-but-morning sickness lifts soon to allow me a smidgeon of normality!)

  10. Congratulations! What wonderful news! In your previous post you mentioned you had some 'big plans and changes afoot' and I imm. suspected there was a baby involved. Welcome to the world of motherhood. I haven't yet popped ( 7 weeks to go - God willing) but as my friends said once you're pregnant you're a mother. Hope your morning sickness passes soon. Take care.

  16. I am so very and completely happy for you and your husband, and extended family!

    What a blessing and a reward - praying you are well before too long, however the (anything but) morning sickness is a good sign that you're so very healthy and your little bean is strong and growing!

    How I'd like to hug you!
