Mr G has gone to catch his plane

...as all was well at the scan.

My passenger is starting to look like a baby! It's amazing. We saw a head, the beginnings of limbs and its little beating heart. For the first time I felt a bit tearful.

Mr G was also a bit emotional, although, when I asked him afterwards, he said he was mildly distracted, because he was standing near my feet and not in the usual position up near my head and had a bird's eye (or should that be bloke's eye) view of my coozie. He couldn't decide where to look first...

Anyway, with the news all good today, we went off to a lovely patisserie where i hoovered up two slices of walnut bread slathered in choc/praline spread - yum. I then dropped Mr G at Pa.ddington Stn so he could catch the Heath.row Express to the airport for his plane to D.enmark.

I've asked an ex-nurse friend to do the honours with the Gest.one tonight. Had to share my news with her and she was delighted. Felt a little embarrassed to tell her...not sure why. I suppose this still feels very private. Perhaps when we're past the first trimester (fingers crossed) I'll feel a little more genuinely pg.

I'm off for manicure and some eyebrow threading now at a friend's house. Hope it's not too painful... Still, as most of us are well aware - you gotta put up with a whole lotta pain if you want any pleasure.

So pleased things are going well, honey, you deserve it.

I have just discovered the joys of threading, a bit of pain but your eyebrows look fantabulous afterwards! xx

I'm so glad to hear that the scan went well and you could enjoy the sight of your little gummy bear with a blinking heart. Sorry that your hubby had to make the tough choice of gazing at your womanhood or his offspring. :-)

Great to hear Portia. Can't wait to see more pictures of the developing passenger. Oh and don't you love the eyebrow threading? I get that done too, every 2 weeks, it's marvelous!

Hope the eyebrows are looking good.

I am so pleased to hear the scan went well and your passenger is doing exatly what he/she should be. Best news I've heard all day!

P.S. I'm considering your clinic at the moment. Would you mind me e mailing you for some details? I quite understand if you'd rather not.

YEAHHHHHH - What great news! I am soooo very very thrilled.

And by the way - I LOVE threading - wish I could find somewhere in Sydney that does it. They all look at me blankly when I ask.

Big hug to you

Glad all is well. Just like a real baby, huh? Isn't it amazing how much they grow and change during just a couple of short weeks?
