Ticking along [Jul. 27th, 2010|12:46 pm]
All continues to be well in our little family. Our daughter is very happy about the prospect of a new baby, although she keeps insisting that it must be a sister, and blue, so we may be in for a little, or a lot of disappointment down the track. I've started to feel some wriggling in there too. It's still very subtle, and I only tend to get it when I'm sitting or lying still so have no other sensations to distract me but there's definitely something going on in there. Our baby is now something like four inches from crown to rump so it's not surprising that it's starting to make its presence felt.

I'm getting braxton hicks contractions already which was a little unnerving until I spoke to a friend who had the same thing happen in her second pregnancy. Nothing painful or enough to trigger any real concern, but it is strange to be feeling them while my uterus still sits just in the lower portion of my belly. I didn't get them last time until my belly was quite big so now it feels strange to get these sensations of tightening and hardness just above my pelvis. Hopefully it all bodes well though. My womb will be very well excercised and ready to go for it once 40 weeks rolls by. :)

We've started on our scary list of jobs, but the list keeps getting longer. The boot of our car is full of baby things that we lent to a friend and who has now returned them and we have nowhere in the house to put them yet as the room that will be the nursery is uncarpeted, undecorated and still full of the last few boxes we haven't got round to unpacking since we moved in a year ago!

And we've started thinking about names, which is quite exciting. We're keeping all our favourites a secret for now though.

All very exciting!

Frances/Francis is a fabulous name for either.
