It's been loads of fun feeling nauseous and throwing up before heading to weddings for work. I'm hoping it won't get worse, it's manageable nausea at the moment coupled with quite a lot of dizziness and light-headedness too. It's tended to be mid-late morning and lunchtime and then I feel a lot better later on in the day. A few things are starting to taste a little bit funny and some foods and drinks I usually like are turning my stomach a little. I remember feeling this way when pregnant with Vivienne but the sickness was never as bad as what I hear some people have to suffer with - hopefully it'll be the same this time.
In more positive news I decided to invest in this amazing cocktail-covered shirt (above) to make me feel slightly better about missing cocktails and beer gardens this year. I've been in Italy this week shooting a wedding with my friend Hannah. It was just beautiful and lots of fun but also completely exhausting - I'm enjoying being back home now and doing the normal things as well as catching up with work.
I have my booking appointment next week so hoping to get on the list for a scan then too. Not sure what to expect really but looking forward to any extra information as I still have zero memory of all of these appointments the first time round..
David is still absolutely desperate to tell people. There are hanging hearts in my in law's house with each of their grand childrens' names on; our nephew said to David's Mum, Mary, last week, "we'll have to get another one because Auntie Sally is going to have a baby girl", which is very bizarre. We still plan to tell Vivienne first so no-one else can know until then. There may be a few white lies along the way..
To counter David's eagerness.. I have absolutely zero desire to tell anyone. In a way it kind of feels a bit... embarrassing? Not in the sense of being ashamed, but more wanting to shy away and not have to deal with reactions and being the centre of attention. I don't want to have to feel like a parrot repeating how I'm feeling/how far along I am/whether I think it's a boy or girl/which names I like... At the moment I feel quite content being in my own little bubble and quietly growing this little thing. I may feel differently after the scan, who knows?
