14 Weeks

Monday marked the beginning of the 14th week of pregnancy which means I am officially in the second trimester now!
I got a bit of a 'scare' on Wednesday as i looked down at my belly - I think I popped over night. Seriously though, I mean 14 wks??? I guess the rumours are right that u show more with the next pregnancy! Jeepers here's a pic (which to be honest I was trying to suck it all in to prevent looking like a hippo)

So I decided last night that I better be brave and break the news to my little man as he will surely start asking questions soon. So last night just before our bath, I told Connor that mommy has a baby in her tummy. His response was 'why'. So i told him mommy's can carry baby's in their tummy's so that when they're big enough they can come out to be Connor's brother or sister & he can then play with them. So he told me it's a sister not a brother & put his head to my tummy to listen to what the baby is saying (yes this brought out the tears in me). When there was no response from the baby, Connor got a pen and proceeded to tattoo his sister (my belly). All in all it went very well & he seems the least perturbed by it. I also asked him if it is a sister if she's going to have long hair & he said no she will have hair like him but we not allowed to take her to have a haircut he he he.

Anyways, have a great weekend all.

Connor fishing in Mozam (pics)

As mentioned in my previous post, I just have to share Connor's afternooon of fishing in mozambique. This was actually in our drive way at home, but there's nothing like the imagination of a little boy......................
First of all we have to get the fishing tackle bag out of the 'boat'

Then we have to paddle like crazy

and more paddling

Sjoe this is tiring work

Once we finish fishing, we must drain all the water out of the 'boat'

Oops, don't bump the head whilst draining the water

When everything is finished and clean, it's time to head of to the 'fishing shop' to buy some more tackle.....................................

And just a pic I adore of my boys!! (no we are not keen soccer supporters, but my sister bought him the kit whilst overseas ;) )

Things to share..............

Well since my last post, we had a gynae's visit! All seemed good & baby has certainly grown! We tried looking for the sex (which in hind sight i found hilarious trying to find the sex on a 8cm baby) but couldn't see anything yet. The baby measured a week ahead of the dates, but we are sticking to my original dates as well I am just always right he he he. Our next appointment is 10th March, so holding fingers we will see the gender then. Here's the 13 wks scan pics:

Connor has settled into school & actually looks forward to going in the mornings. I still take him in and sit with him during assembly, but then he goes to class with his teacher after giving me a big kiss goodbye. He is so sweet at the moment, don't get me wrong, he has his bad moments, but overall he's too adorable. Some of my favourite things that he says at the moment are Disonaur (for dinosaur) and when i ask him if he needs a wee he says 'no fanks'. I took some pictures of him pretending to fish in moambiq (I told him his dad was fishing in mozambique and of course now he pretends to go there) so as soon as I have downloaded them, i will share them here.

My brother in law (Ryan) offered to fly Connor and I up to Johannesburg to go visit. So we took him up on his offer and will be flying there on the 3rd of March. Connor will be missing 3 days of school, but I guess it's not too bad????? Can't wait to see the family again!

Monday and not so blue!

Wow what a start to the day! I took Connor to school this morning, only for him to give me a kiss at the gate & go into school with his teacher!! I was so proud of my big boy, but couldn't help shedding a tear at the thought of him being such a big boy he he!

The weekend went very well. Friday I picked Connor up and took him for a much needed (ok only in my eyes) hair cut. We then played all afternoon & then went and got some McDonalds for supper! Yip while F's away, we may eat the stuff ;)

Saturday we got up and I sanded all the rust off Connor's bike & then sprayed it with silver spray! I don't want to pat myself on the back here, but I must say i think it looked rather good! We then went and had a shower and then proceeded to the shops. I had promised Connor a shark tattoo (yes the temporary ones) if he filled his reward chart up for the week. (He gets a sticker for eating supper & sleeping in his own bed every night and once he has filled the whole week with stickers, he gets a reward). We of course couldn't find the darn tattoo, but the lil guy settled on a new pair of Ben10 shoes, and Ben10 playing cards. We went past Ouma and Oupa and then headed home! We were exhausted today because the temperature reached 39 degrees today and that is excluding the humidity (which could add another 5 degrees) - draining!!
Sunday we cleaned house a bit and then headed to the in laws for some lunch. Once again it was sooooo hot that we couldn't even play outside as it was just too too hot! We had an awesome afternoon with toys all over the place & then had an early night & headed to bed!!

Frank's coming home today from Mozambique & I can't wait to see the pics of the big fish he caught!

Last weekend we went to a fishing competition in Salt Rock and we camped there for the weekend! Wow let me just say, the caravan park that we stayed at is one of the nicest we have ever camped in and it was right on the beach. The tidal pool is right in front of the caravan park & you just walk straight on the beach. It was awesome.
It rained on the Friday, but luckily only after we had put our tent and accesories up. The saturday was the competition and shame the fishing conditions sucked! There were 230 entrants into the competition and out of those, only 25 managed to launch due to the massive surf! Frank didn't go out but we supported from the beach. We camped with friends (Daryll & Lisa) and their little boy (Matt) and Connor got along famously & tired each other out!

On our way home on Sunday, we stopped off at the animal farm which was a huge hit with the kids! It's an awesome place and we had a picnic there.

The boys fighting over who goes first he he he

12 Wks today :) :)

Well I have made it to the twelve week mark! This makes me feel good as most books now say your are 'officially pregnant' at this stage as most of the dangers disappear from here on out.
I have started to feel alot better already and only have a bit of nausea here & there! Hey I may now secretly start enjoying the pregnancy now as before this I was still too worried to get excited ;) Also the nausea has prevented the enjoyment, which I am hoping will now ease up a bit!
The first of my belly pics was taken last week (at 11wks) and although i am embarrassed to show you how big I am already, I thought I would just prove to you what I have been telling everyone :

Hectic right???

Oh well, the joys :) :)
