It's a very weird thing, making a person. I honestly never thought I'd do it, but here we are... so I'm gonna tell it like it is. It's a very scary and exciting time. Yikes!

4D scan

We had the 4D scan yesterday (don't ask me the difference between 3D and 4D - no idea!)... it wasn't much of a success as our little girl was being shy. She was sleepy and hiding her face behind her hand most of the time.

There is a moment on the DVD where she moves a bit and gives us a better glimpse of her face, and I will try save a shot of that and post it up.

In the meantime, here's the best printout we got - her face is in profile, facing right, with her hand up in front of her mouth - hopefully you can see it... the 'scan-uninitiated' just see a blob! ;)

On days like today...

... I think, "Hey, I could do this again - it's easy!"

I had an awesome yoga class yesterday and feel like a different person! Today I have had no backache, no leg aches, no numb or burning sciatic nerve, she's not sitting on my bladder and I generally feel 'light'.

Hope it lasts!!!

28 weeks

Went for our 28 week scan on Friday - all is well. She is apparently 'big' - already weighing in at 1.2kgs! We could see her one eye open and close... very cool!

Doc is unhappy with my weight gain at this point (as am I) - but I'm so damn hungry all the time. I have already put on 11kgs since I got pregnant and was aiming at only putting on 12 in total! There goes that...

Have broken out in horrible acne - I look worse than when I was a teenager. Glowing my ass!

Apart from all that, feeling pretty good and starting to get excited. The nursery is almost done... will post some pics soon.

And the clothing saga continues...

I'm on the hunt for maternity tracksuit pants.

I need comfy pants to wear around the house and for yoga. I have been wearing some bigger ones I had from my 'fat days' but the fact is even a bigger waistline is still a waistline and gets uncomfortable after a while.

No such animal as maternity tracksuit pants seems to exist... so I emailed some new mothers and other pregnant women at my work for help. These were the replies:

"Never had much luck with maternity clothes – it’s time to borrow from hubby, big brother or some older relative!"

"I suggest an extra large pair of tracksuit pants from the men’s department at Woolies... coz I've never actually seen maternity ones."

"Last weekend I bought 3 pairs of XXL track pants at Mr Price. OK, so they're a little big for me, but they work!!"

How can there be no such thing? Am I the only person who would buy them? This gives 'niche in the market' new meaning...

So it seems I will need to look like an idiot again and buy extra large men's clothes - oh well, at least I can give them away to the local hobos when I'm done.
