19 weeks and counting!!

just chillin ...

So I know that my blogging has been incredibly substandard of late … but it is only as of yesterday that we now have a new laptop and the internet at our house. So things have changed quite considerably since my last post! I am still working full-time and still loving my life as wifey to my sweet Reginald and mummy to pretty little Ella to but now we get to add to this little family of ours and if you didn’t already know … which I highly doubt … I am 19 weeks Pregnant 🙂

I have had many people ask me if I am pregnant with twins (some just blatently tell me that I’m huge which makes me feel soooo pretty – not) and then several more say that I look really small for 19 weeks so it was with much anticipation that Regan and I went to my first ultrasound yesterday. Regan has been scaring me with his dream about twins and his constant suggestion that we are gonna have to maybe buy the double pram.

The man who was doing my ultrasound looked as excited as though he were looking at the bus time-table. I mean COME ON …  get excited! it’s a human living inside of me. but that didn’t stop the awesome excitement that we were feeling!! I didn’t get to see the screen as he took all of the necessary snap shots and measurements so I got to live vicariously through my hubby who looked like he might burst with joy and then finally he turned the screen to me and showed me my gorgeous little bubs who I’m pretty sure was sucking its thumb (just like it’s aunty.)

So it is now safe to say that we are having one baby and not twins … not that I’m against twins but I’m thinking of my mental health here!

So here are just a few little snap shots of Cletus the Fetus and the cuteness that is to come!

waving to all of the people we love

"feeling a little claustrophobic"

On a side note, Mama and Papa Soininen have left today to go serve a mission in Lapland, Finland for 18 months (in the Arctic Circle.) We got to hang out when I came down for Errie’s wedding and cried like a baby when I got on the plane to go back to Sydney. I am so proud of them and for the awesome example they are to me. Plus Mum has been working hardcore to learn the language and been doing awesomely. Hopefully their absence will make me more of a faithful photo taker and blogger, otherwise there is always Skype! We love you and miss you already!! xoxo

    What you didn’t get to watch a tv that hangs from the ceiling and see your bubby for yourself?
    My favourite memory of the scan was the coloured one where they show your the heart muscle working. I think that is where I truly believed this was real and not just indigestion.
