Is the right word… I suppose it’s only just sinking in for the both of us that we have a little one on the way. But we are in a period where it’s early days, Thumpah is approaching her 9th week. Its flying by so fast now.
Last Friday we went for her first Ecograph just to see if everything was as it should be, and so we saw our first “photo” of our “petit bout” “haricot” call it what you will. Already we could see it’s head and tiny feet.
“It” (because we don’t know the sex yet) is 26mm from it’s head to it’s bum, and it’s heart is beating well. Apparently a healthy petit bout. Lets hope so!
So this very small thing will be a very big thing in our lives next Summer! Already we’ve emptied one of our bedrooms to start the decorating of the future nursery. Over the weekend I removed the wooden slats from one wall of the room, as we’ll need to re-lay those using batons. They were previously warped all over the place and hadn’t been touched in 30 years. You can tell that this used to be our “junk” room!
Thumpah has about got through the feeling sick and drained stage. I’m learning to be a good nurse. We go for the next Eco middle of November, we have the very first appointment with a Gynecologist shortly after that.
I hope Father-hood suits me and that we can both get the bi-lingual thing going. My MIL said to me the other day, that perhaps I should start speaking English to it while it is still in the womb. Thing is… what do you say to a baby, who may or may not be listening, in English when you are so used to speaking French? 🙂
Well… I’d better be a reasonable future Daddy, and head back to bed. It’s 2am and this period of insomnia brought on by worrying is doing my head in!
