We bought a new car on the weekend & said goodbye to the truck (click on the link if you or anyone you know is on the look out - it's being sold for a bargain). I miss it very much. I know George misses it more & that's made more prominent because I'm very happy with our new vehicle & he's in the process of learning to like it. It's practical & I know he'll notice how much easier our life will be because of that. The only thing left to do is install bike storage. After that I think George will be happier...

After having had last Friday off of work to look after a poorly Evelyn I now have the next two month of Fridays off to look after, what I hope will be, a healthy happy Evelyn. Which is much more fun. We're going to look at a car in an hour or so as the truck can't fit two car seats in the back & we could do with having a boot. It's been quite hard considering swapping it because we like it so much & that's made us quite fussy about what we could consider a suitable replacement. But this one seems good & as long as it doesn't honk of stale smoke like the last one we went to view then I would say its a definite maybe.

I am so tired right now that I can't even bring myself to edit out the red eye in my picture. This is nothing to do with pregnancy & everything to do with having a poorly toddler who woke me up at 5:30 this morning. Still, I wanted to get this posted today as I find it hard enough to remember what's happened in the past week without adding a day or two. So here it is: 22 weeks pregnant, written in my tired & cranky voice, without any care for editing. Doesn't get much more real than that... :D

This week has been really nice. The most exciting event was having our 20 week scan on Tuesday. I booked that day off of work so that I could relax rather than rush & so it was, as always, a lovely experience. I want to say a huge thank you to our ultra sound technician for being so thorough & talking us through everything & for giving us the gift of knowing our baby's gender.

This week has been all about wearing my tummy proudly. I've favoured more figure hugging tops over the baggier variety & although I am aware that I could still be mistaken for someone who's eaten too much for lunch I feel quite happy in myself.

I was hesitant around posting two updates in such close succession so rather than taking my measurements are normal time (9am ish) for today's update I decided to take my photos & measurements in the evening. I forgot to mention in my last post that the size difference can sometimes be vast between morning & evening. Especially the difference in size placement. Realistically this is probably because I haven't had a night to digest my food but a lot of other pregnant women notice this too & thought you might be interested to see the change.

It feels like yesterday that I was documenting my pregnancy with Evelyn but we're actually 2 years down the line! How crazy is that? It doesn't feel the same as last time though. But then, the circumstance is entirely different: When I was pregnant with Evelyn I was self employed, waiting for our house to be built so living with my lovely parents, I spent a lot of time sleeping or vomiting & by this point I would have already had a trip to hospital courtesy of hyperemesis.
Baby is due mid June & judging by my early enormity it has been desperate to make itself known. I am looking forward to ditching the baggy jumpers & wearing my pregnancy with pride. Thank you to everyone who has already congratulated us, we are overjoyed.
I hope to find the time to bring everyone along on this journey via the blog if you would like to share it with us. For now we want to wish everyone a joyous start to 2015. X

Before my birthday last year I had never considered the possibility of receiving an edible gift through my letterbox but since receiving one, courtesy of some lovely friends, I have been entirely enamoured with the idea & frankly I think the world is a better place now that I have been enlightened.
