11 weeks and 1 day

I'm starting to get excited. Each day that passes I feel a little more secure. Even the NT scan in two weeks is not stressing me, I just feel very happy and calm. I'm starting to allow myself to imagine holding this baby, our baby. To having a family, finally, after all these years. It just still feels a little unreal. Maybe when dreams come true that's what it feels like. Like you are being given everything you ever dreamed of, hoped for.

I'm tired. Some days are worse than others, but that does seem to be passing. Some days I can't even bring myself to watch TV in the evenings - I just want to lay down in bed. It's made for some very early nights, and then being awake in the wee small hours. I don't mind that so much - I just rub my tummy and chat to the peanut. I've been lucky enough so far to have very little nausea, but I do wake up very hungry at the moment!

However, I've got a really sore calf and am having physio twice a week - and that is bugging me. Because when I wake up it aches, and keeps me awake. Very annoying, but hopefully that will be fixed up soon.

Hubby is off to the US this afternoon - one week of work, one week of seeing friends and going across the states by train. I'm going to miss him, not least because he is looking after me so well. It will be a very quiet week while he is gone, and then a friend is moving in to stay with us for a while so we will be an interesting household of four cats, two dogs, three adults and a baby bump!
