A big hello to all my lovely blog followers! Sorry I have been so slack on the blogging front lately. I sometimes go to write a post but first I tend to catch up on other blogs and sometimes by the time I have finished reading and commenting on the other IF blogs I read (of which there sadly hasn't been the best news lately) I feel like by coming on here and writing a post about my pregnancy, it is a bit like rubbing salt in the wound. So I don't post and then I realise how useless I have been at keeping everyone up to date. For those of you who are struggling at the moment, I feel for you, I really do. I haven't forgotten my 3 years of TTC by any means and I hope to see a big run of BFP's in the near future.
I am 25w4d now and the HG has FINALLY started tackling that nursery. I rejoiced to see the bad weather starting to set in this week and rejoiced even more when he came home last night after a night out fishing (the one night this week that the weather has been good enough) and said he had some bad news . . . the Snapper have left the coast. YIPPEE!! This means fishing season is coming to a close and I get my husband back! He is obsessed with fishing and this season has been out on the boat even more so than usual as he knows next year he won't be able to get out quite as frequently and I am fine with that. But, I need that nursery done! He's had a great run this summer with endless fish and crayfish but it's coming to a close as Autumn sets in and therefore the nursery has been getting some more attention, just not quite in the way I expected. So I came home the other night and the ceiling had been torn down. Dust and broken wood chips covered EVERYTHING. I was of the impression we were going to paint the walls and move the furniture in . . . hmm . . . so much for that idea! I just hope it gets finished now (unlike the outside of the house which has been half finished for the last three years and the bathroom which had the ceiling replaced but only got one swipe of paint and looks it). What is it with men doing DIY but never finishing what they started?! I will endeavor to take a photo this weekend to show you the state of the soon to be nursery so that I can do before and after shots. Hopefully more progress gets made this weekend as the rain and cold sets in (YES!!!).
As for me, I am still experiencing the joy of the second trimester and feeling great. Sleeping really well (apart from crazy dreams), still feeling comfortable so no backache or aches and pains except a bit of rib pain occasionally but I am getting bigger and baby is moving around and kicking a little harder every day (hard enough to wake me up at 3.30am two nights in a row!) but I am starting to get to the point where I am so excited I just want to meet him! Now I understand why pregnant woman get so impatient about having their babies. I used to sit there and think 'Just enjoy your pregnancy, they'll be here soon enough!' but now I get it.
Can't wait to meet you little man! 14 weeks to go!
