The year is now 2012, the Christmas holidays were awesome with family dinners, tea party with the Chestnuts, excited eyes opening gifts and peaceful days laying around with my incredible husband. My mind was continually filled with thoughts that this time next year we will be blessed to have a 6 month old with us!
The pregnancy so far has had few symptoms. I still have morning sickness if I sleep in too late and let my belly get extra empty, but all gets better as soon as I eat 🙂 can’t be complaining about that. Tiredness has been lingering around but I hope the rumours are true that the energy picks up as the months push forward, so far we are almost at 5 months. The belly is growing and I beginning to get slightly uncomfortable lying in my favourite position, on my tummy.
Life is quickly changing in many ways for Ben and I, updates will come as plans are confirmed. But right now it is time to focus on staying healthy, eating food and growing this tiny life inside of me.
Sad news did hit today when I got a phone call from Dad sharing with me that Maddie, our 14 year dog, had to be put down last night due to a bladder tumour causing problems. She was not in pain thankfully and I am glad she died peacefully and with a happy life behind her.
