Last weekend we celebrated Greg's 30th birthday at a pub in the Dandenongs (He kindly postponed his 30th birthday celebrations until I was feeling better :). It was a fun night with great food and company. And entertainment provided by Greg and his tambourine. :) (with back up entertainers Tanya on the maracas, Hamish on the tambourine and Darpana on sticks).
Greg and I also stayed the weekend in the Dandenongs for some much needed R&R. :)
On Monday I had my 19 week scan. I was excited about this scan because I hadn't seen the bub for 7 weeks. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy this scan as much as last time, because it felt like it was more of a technical procedure and also the bub wasn't moving as much this time.
We did get to see two feet, ten toes, two legs, two arms, heart beating, internal organs in place, bones, skull, brain, heart chambers, and even some nose picking. haha.
Greg and I also found out the sex (big hint from the colour of this text). :)
My pregnancy is no longer in such control of my life. Unfortunately I do still feel sick most of the time but it has eased off A LOT! Sometimes I do feel sicker than other times (especially at night time). So I wonder if I will feel sick throughout the entire pregnancy? But as long as it's not as bad as it used to be, then I can cope with it.
I am tired all the time now and need more sleep than I used to. But after being so sick for so long, being tired doesn't seem that bad.
I have a new found appreciation for food now. Foods suddenly taste so much better to me. Even simple foods such as fruit and veges burst with flavour.
A couple of weeks ago I started feeling very tiny, slight movements, which I wasn't sure if it was the baby or not? As of this week I can definitely feel the baby moving. I feel little pokes every now and then. It does feel very weird to be poked from the inside. But it's a great feeling because I know that the bub is there and ok. :)
Ohh.. and I have a bump and am starting to look pregnant now.
