And then there were five...
Yep, that's right. I've got a bun in the oven. I'm knocked up. The stork is due a visit. While we're extremely excited, having done it twice before we're also a little daunted and a little terrified too. This is partly due to the fact that it's all happened very suddenly. We decided to expand our family shortly after the new year and before we knew it I was pregnant. For some reason we thought it would take a while, why I don't know as it's never taken long before. I kept reading things that when you're 35 you only have a 10% chance of falling pregnant each month, so I decided I had months to get used to the idea. I thought Lil-lil would be settled in big school and we'd have moved house long before the baby arrived.
Nature had other ideas and we got pregnant. Straight. Away. Best laid plans and all that.
Now things have sunk in and we're over the moon. The fear and shock have subsided and been replaced with excitement and joy (and nausea). It feels so right to be welcoming another little person into our family.
So The Daze of My Life is going to get a little bigger! Now, if you'd please pass a bucket and a glass of Dry Ginger Ale, I need a little lie down.
