I can't believe i nearly forgot to share these pics with you all!

A few weeks back, Frank decided to take Connor on his first paddling experience. Connor was of course beyond excited about it. We took him to the lagoon here in Toti and the boys had an absolute blast. Frank reckons Connor's 'a natural' at paddling and Connor can't wait to go again.

Just look at these pics:

Good fun!!!

30 Wks and growing......

This week marks the thirtieth week of pregnancy! Wow i have grown big time as you can see in the pics below.
I am feeling relatively good except for the ongoing tiredness! To be honest I am battling a bit to entertain Connor as I feel I just don't have the energy, but try my best none the less.
So this means only 8 more weeks to go! I am excited to meet the new addition, but wonder how I will cope with my two boys once he arrives. I guess it's normal to feel like this and I guess you just make it work - well I sure hope so anyways.
I have a doc appointment next week, so will keep you posted on our progress.

27 Wks Update

All went very well with our appointment yesterday.

Little dude is weighing in at 940grms :D :D He was very busy and all his measurements were excellent! We saw his little chest cavity moving up and down which shows he is practising breathing for when he's born - too cute man!

They detected a bit of blood in my urine so will be sending it away for analysis. Doc says it could be a bladder infection but because I had the fever the day before he felt I had to go on an anti biotic (yes again :roll: ) to clear up anything until we get the urine results back. Luckily it's not too serious & I am sort of happy to be back on the anti biotic as my chest is starting up again!

Otherwise a great appointment.

And here's my 26wks pics:

Connor's first catch

The day had to eventually come & our big boy eventually caught his own fish! He was so proud that he demanded pics and wanted to carry the poor thing around a bit! Yes it's only a rock fish but it's still his first catch!

Well done my boy, we are very very proud of you :)



Well we are at 25 weeks today & growing very very rapidly! So rapidly that I have decided that only healthy fruit etc is going to pass these lips from today onwards!
Here's some pics taken yesterday:
(Had to take it in mirror as Frank's not here)

And Connor took this well 'interesting' picture from the bottom!!

Connor with his baby in belly :)

Last week I had my sister come and visit with her three boys! Wow what a handful that was, 4 boys to entertain every day, but it was awesome and am already missing them all! Connor had an absolute blast with his cousins & I actually just kept him off school for the week to play with them. Our days were mostly spent on the beach, but also had shopping etc to do!

Here's some of the pics:

Fishing fishing fishing

We had Frank's club competition over the weekend & I am pleased to announce that he came second in the comp, which wins us a trip to Mozambique! Although it will only be once baby is born (because of malaria) I am so excited as it's somewhere I have always wanted to see!!!

Connor of course loved every minute of it and jumped in on the action of taking pics! Secretly he thinks all the prizes and fish caught are for him - sweeti pie.

Here's some of the pics:

23 Wks

Well i am excited to say we had our gynae appointment today at 23.4 wks!
It was so awesome as we got to see little dude opening and closing his mouth (drinking amniotic fluid) and even saw a glimpse of his little tongue! So precious!! He is weighing around 670 grams now & seems to have long legs :)

The funniest thing is he is lying in there with his little ankles crossed which is something Connor did and still does when he sleeps. And of course it goes without saying that Frank does the same thing when he's sleeping!!

I have put on a whopping 5kg since my last visit, which came as a bit of a shock (until I remembered all the creme easter eggs i have been eating) but figure there's no good stressing about it now, will have to just gym extra hard once our little bundle arrives.

I am going for my 4d scan on the 3rd of June which I can't wait for & our next gynae appointment is on the 20th May!

Here's some of the latest hippo pics:

20 Wks

I am feeling lots of movement now, especially in the evening and am loving every minute of it! It really helps to build a bond once you feel the little life moving inside of you!
On a downer, I have been hit with bronchitis and an ear infection and am really battling to breathe a the moment. Doc put me on some anti biotics and cortizone for my chest, hope they start working real soon! Oh and yes all the meds are preggy safe ;)

Here's my 20 wks pics:

Looong weekend

Well the weekend past was a long weekend for us with Monday being a public holiday. It was awesome as we went and camped in Scottburgh. Scottburgh isn't very far from us (about 20 min drive) but it was still nice to get away a bit. Connor loved every minute of it & loves sleeping in the tent. The only problem is it was so flippen hot we nearly melted! Luckily we were right on the beach so when the sea breeze did actually blow, it cooled us down a bit. We also spent some time bathing in the rock pools which was very refreshing!\

My mom headed back to the uk on Monday too, but will be returning in July sometime, so it's not long before we see her again :)

Connor has his school photo's today, so we gelled and spiked his hair for the occasion - I will share the pics with you once I get them :) Connor also showed me his smile that he's going to do for the picture & also said he's going to show the cameraman his muscles whilst he take the pic he he he The school holidays start tomorrow until the 12th April but luckily the school is still open for the kids to go play, there's just no 'official teaching', just playtime during the holidays.

I have my detailed scan tomorrow which is where they check all the baby's organs etc, so will share those pics next week too.

Update on everything

Ok so a general update since the last post:

Connor's parent's evening was too cute. It wasn't a one on one parents evening as such, more as a group thing. The kids showed us the songs they sing at school & we got to have a look through the work that they have done so far. We had a general chat with the teacher then & apparently Connor's doing very well. Des (Connor's teacher) said that Connor is good with colours and shapes & that he's adjusted to school very well. I am so very proud of my 'big boy'!!
Speaking of proud, Connor did a number two in the loo last night! I know it's not big to many of you, but to us it's ground breaking he he he. Lets hope it was the start of good things :)

Our Joburg trip was awesome. Connor loved playing with his cousins again and it was great getting to see the family again! It was so nice to have some cooler weather too, as it's been so hot here by us that it's nearly unbearable!
On a down side, we were broken in to on the 6th March and the thieves took our two tv's, jewellery, dvd machines and radio. Aaaai what can I say? It sux about the stuff, but the thing that really irks me is the fact that these aholes break in, take what they want & then get away with it!!! I also think it is the builders guys that were here as they were a bit dodgy and whomever broke in, new our big dog as no one would risk coming in with him normally. Unfortunately though, we can't prove it & we don't know where they stay, so we just have to accept it and move on :(

Not much happening here this week. I will be taking Connor to the doctor today as he has had a bad cough for the past two weeks now. I wasn't too worried about it, but he's started coughing more & is wheezing too so decided to rather take him and get some more meds.

Anyways, have an awesome day & hope to update again soon


It's a ......................


Wow I am so happy and excited! I thought Frank may be a bit disappointed (as he wanted a daughter) but he seems over the moon. He said he always wanted a brother to play with as a child (he's got 4 sisters) and knows that Connor will love it! Connor is excited already & is asking when 'baby brother' is coming! So exciting, now I can go and get the room and stuff sorted out.

I went and lay on the bed, waiting to be scanned & the doc started. He asked a few minutes later, do we want to try and tell the gender?? To which I replied, I just saw it's another boy ;) Doc was shocked and asked how do i know, so I told him I saw it. He double checked and was surprised that I was right & said 'i guess you have a well trained eye' he he he. Hey if i wanna know, i wanna know right??

Here's the evidence & I don't think there's much doubting it?

And the 17 weeks profile pic:

So precious !!!

The downs blood results came back 1 in 5010, so that's all good!!
Next appointment is the detailed scan on the 26th March 2010, can't wait to see our 'little boy' again :) :)
