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 :) :)

This week

So I mentioned earlier that I had my bloods drawn today & will update you as soon as I get results.

Then tomorrow night it's my big boy's first parent's evening. I will be going alone (with Connor) as Frank's in Jhb for the day. I can't wait to see what he's been doing in class & to hear what his teacher has to say. Of course I know I will shed a tear or two as well as apparently they're all going to sing us some of the song's that they've learned - darn hormones he he he

Then on Wednesday we are flying to Jhb in the afternoon to go visit the family a bit. I can't wait, but I can tell you, Connor is waaay more excited than me. He's been counting the sleeps from 20 sleeps already :) It's going to be awesome seeing everyone again & I hope to get some pics to share with you all too!

Well that's all for now, tfr XX

16 Wks !!!

Wow it's all becoming real now he he he
I am 16 wks preggers today! I went for the down syndrome blood tests & should get the results by Wednesday. Yes for those who know me too well, I will be phoning tomorrow to get the results early :) I think I feel movement for the past couple of weeks now, but could not say for sure! I am hoping to feel some definate kicks/jabs soon. Here's a bump pic for now:
