The past 2 weeks have been busy....but don't ask me what I have been doing as I really couldn't tell you any specific 'events', I think it is just having all the children at home over the past 6 or 7 weeks for the summer school break makes for a busy household.
I did manage however to get myself off to the Doctors to confirm my pregnancy and get the appropriate forms for the appropriate tests to be done, which meant a few days after that I had blood tests and a 'dating' ultrasound to find out when exactly this baby is due. As it turns out the baby is due on the 6th of September - ages away, I know! After seeing the flickering of our tiny babys heart on the ultrasound makes it all a bit more real now. I felt very excited, but also relief to see that everything was on track, so far. Next is to get over all the pregnancy nausea I have had this time around. Of my 5 previous pregnancies, I have never really suffered from morning sickness. I wouldn't say I have really been 'sick' so to speak this time either, just the yukky feeling of feeling unwell at the most inconvenient times, particularly at meal times. I am sure this will all pass soon enough though.
On another note, the girls all go back to school next week which they are all very excited about. I must admit, I am just a bit excited about it too. It will be nice to be back into the day routine that school time brings. It will also be nice to have a little bit of peace and quiet around the house during the day (not forgetting the 2 littlies will be here) - it does become very noisy with 3 older girls constantly chatting all day long. So as we all get ready for the return of school, holidays for the girls draw to a finish - they have been fun, but very long, bring on school days!!
..... Just another day ....
