Time for Another

the diary of our quest for baby number 2

5wks & 2 days Thursday 22 November 2007

Quick update. I took a Clearblue digital test last week too – just so I could see the result in words. And sure enough ‘pregnant’ came up nice and fast. What’s funny this time around is that I’m not getting any symptoms at all. I felt queasy and sick on Monday just gone, but the following day, all gone. I’m still eating strong, spicy food, and haven’t gone off the smell of anything (yet). Well, except I’m finding red wine a bit nasty, which is a great thing as I shouldn’t be drinking anything alcoholic 🙂

This weekend will be a testing one, a birthday party on Friday where I’ll be feigning an infection of sorts, then a toddler birthday party on Saturday. Hopefully not so difficult! But we may tell them anyway – very trustworthy people who definitely won’t blab and supportive if needed. I still can’t believe I haven’t cracked and told my mum yet. Thank god for being really busy with work.

Anyway found this today:
Dates and numbers:
You are 5 weeks pregnant.
There are 242 days until your due date on July 22, 2008.
You are 38 days pregnant.
You are 1.2 months pregnant.
You are in your 2nd month of pregnancy.
Your 1st trimester: October 16, 2007 to January 14, 2008. (0 – 12 weeks)
Your 2nd trimester: January 15, 2008 to April 28, 2008. (13 – 27 weeks)
Your 3rd trimester: April 29, 2008 to July 22, 2008. (28 – 40 weeks)

The baby has not grown very much from last week and is now approximately 1.25 mm long.

Sooooo tiny! And it has a tail too. Pictures of ‘babies’ at this stage resemble tiny aliens or something jurassic. I can’t wait to see it wriggling around at the scan (no date yet, midwife booking appointment on the 5th December)
