Secret Diary Post - Who Knows, Who Doesn't!


Hahaha!!!! Yesterday's Clear Blue Digi!


Positive Pregnancy Test!


Naturally the first person I told was Hubby! Everytime I get pregnant I tell myself  "keep it to yourself for a bit, don't even tell Hubby just yet" but that lasts a maximum of a minute! Hubby struggles to take it all in this early on. In fact, until he sees the 12 week scan he's never really that convinced. To be honest, I don't think it really sinks in with him until that baby is put in his arms! (oh God, hormones.... welling up at that thought!)

The girls on www.PregnancyForum.org.uk know. That's one of the points of being on there after all! Naturally that means that my sister-in-law Rach knows because she is on there. And she is pregnant too! Just 5 days ahead of us (although the midwife will put me 5 days ahead of her because they don't take long cycles into account, it will take out dating scans to see who really is in the lead!) I'm guessing that my brother in law will know too, she's bound to have told him just like I told Hubby about them. But we all understand it's a "don't go any further" kind of thing. I doubt the fellers will discuss it much until it's public.

I told my manager at work too. She's been great all the way through my TTC journey and has been really routing for us. She had problems getting pregnant too. She has a daughter and had to go though a lot to get her. It never happened again. Yesterday it was just the two of us in the office so I could tell her safely and privately. She jumped up and gave me a massive hug, even though she is recovering from an operation on her arm and it must have hurt her! She is so thrilled for us! We spent most of the morning nattering about pregnancy, babies and that kind of thing. It's a good job some of the fellers turned up in the afternoon or we wouldn't have got much work done!

Naturally I told my Mum! Who's response was "that was quick!" and then a stunned silence as it dawned on her she'd be looking after 4 of my little darlings one day a week in a year and a half's time - when she'll be 71! I've suggested we make alternative arrangements, but she wants to give it a go. It's a long time off yet though!

Chances are I'll tell my Dad too. He's likely to call tonight or tomorrow. I'd better run the idea past Hubby first though!

It's killing me that I can't share these post yet. But I have extended family on just about every social media I use so I just can risk it! It's Feb before we hit 12 weeks. If we do have a car for Christmas and go to visit family the cat will quickly be out of the bag! We stay with Jenny (one of my Sisters in Law) and she always guesses when I'm preg. I haven't dare speak to her since I found out! She can even tell over the phone! I'd gladly tell her NOW but I'm not allowed :( I'm only agreeing to keep it quiet because of Rach & Bob not telling yet. They found out first, they're due first, they should tell first. She says she's going to try to talk him round for telling at Christmas, which would be great for her and for me..... but I know we shouldn't put that pressure on the Husbands. It's just to exciting!!!!!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
