General Update

I have been a very bad blogger!  Here are some updates. 

On Tuesday Mr OL and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary.  In some instances it has flown by and in others it seems as if we have always been together.   Mr OL took me out for dinner and by that I mean I told him he was taking me out, booked the restaurant and told him the time and place.  I kindly let him pay (the taking me out part).  I think he might have realized just how much being pregnant has made me go off meat.  His very carnivorous wife went to her favourite steakhouse and ordered the vegetarian platter.  It was actually very good. 

On Saturday I was feeling quite good so I went for my first run in a while.  Oh boy!!!  I did not realise just how quickly I would loose some of my fitness.  I intended on running 10km but settled for a very slow 7km.  It was good to be out again – but then the weather turned all nasty on me and I have not been out again.  This weekend I promise!! 

I posted the pictures of our 12 week scan.  It is actually the scan where they do the NT Test and some blood test to check to see if it is a high risk pregnancy with regards to Down’s syndrome and other chromosomal problems.  The scan looked good and the neck fold was 1.31mm which is considered good.  Anything under 3mm is good.  I am still waiting for the combined results and should get them on Monday afternoon or Tuesday.  I think after that I will calm down and enjoy this pregnancy a bit more.  I think because of my age I am a bit worried.  I will also be in my 2nd trimester from next week and I have heard that is better….  Not that I have been that sick or anything.  Just the occasional migraine and wave of nausea, but nothing compared to what some people go through. 

I did buy the first baby toy yesterday.  It is a fluffy sheep that snores.  I was in hysterics in the shop so had to get it.  Its tummy moves up and down as it snores as well.  My dogs are not so sure and Daisy started to growl at it.  We then “introduced” them and she just sat and stared at it.  Another funny thing that happened yesterday was that there was a baby crying on the TV.  Both my dogs jumped up and started staring at the TV.  They don’t usually pay much attention to the noises on the TV.  I rewound it and played it back to them.  After the 3rd time they got bored and ignored it.  It will be interesting to see how the react to a real baby.  I am sure that Duke will be all protective and Daisy will just want it to get a bit bigger so she could run around with it.  

Well – that’s all for now.  HOME TIME!!  And weekend.  Have a great one.
