My precious Button

Well, you had your first camping experience this weekend. I do hope it hasn’t put you off for life! It was so cold, I wasn’t sure if we were going to make it through the second night! I felt a little like Racheltjie de Beer who hid her brother in a dug out anthill so as to save him from exposure while she herself died of the cold.
It was only when Daddy had wrapped himself around us like a human blanket that my teeth stopped chattering and I was able to get to sleep.  The next morning he commented that he could feel how much you (and therefor, I ) have grown when he had his arm around my middle. When we got home yesterday I gave him a very big hug and kiss and he laughed and said he could feel my stomach pressing in to his! Under different circumstances that would have got him in to serious trouble, but since I’ve been worried about you not growing, I was very happy indeed.

This morning I was dressing for work and tried to put on the same pants (trousers) that I had worn on Thursday, to find that they were actually too tight! Finally – signs of a pregnancy! I also had a midwife appointment this afternoon and I got to hear your heartbeat! I know I say everytime that I see or hear  you that it is simply amazing, that YOU are simply amazing, but I have to say it this time again. Just hearing your little heartbeat race so fast brings to me a standstill. Daddy couldn’t make the appointment, so I recorded the sound for him.  I know Daddy and all the other people who can’t wait to meet you will be so happy to hear it!

Love you my baby.

Can’t wait to see you again in my next scan.



Pregnancy Week 19 – Growing Growing Growing (and a heartbeat!)

  1. Thanks once again for sharing… I loved the scans so much, its so reassuring to hear the heartbeat and see them moving around, especially when you can’t feel them yet.

    I’m so glad to hear that everything is going better, I really hope Martin can make the next scan, it truly is an amazing experience.

    Look after yourself and your little button
