Our Little Princess

We took a (rather uncomfortable) trip to Queanbeyan a week or so ago for the 20 week morphology scan. While I didn't enjoy the drive at all (every small bump in the road is noticeable when you have a full bladder in prep for an ultrasound) the result was well worth it. We got to see a very healthy and active bubba with everything where it should be. The most exciting part of course was confirming my gut feeling since we first found out we were expecting - that we are, indeed, having a little girl :D

She was spot on size-wise for dates and we were able to see all her little fingers and toes which was very reassuring.

And here she is!

Now we just have to survive the next 19 or so weeks to actually meet her and see her properly! At least I am past the halfway mark now but I am sure the rest of the pregnancy is going to drag as I get more and more excited.

On the news-other-than-baby front, not a whole lot to report. I have only just started a bunch of seeds but am hoping that they will 'catch up' quickly in the warmer weather. I am really struggling to keep on top of the wedding and bed preparation because I am still so tired from this gorgeous parasite. I got a big pile of bark mulch delivered yesterday though so will be using that and weed mat to try and tidy up out the front around the veggie beds to make it lower maintenance. Hopefully the weather will be nice over the weekend so I can get that done.

On the chookie and duckie front, all is well although we have decided to adopt out the quackers, as cute as they are. There is a local lady who has other poultry who is interested in giving them a home so that is good. She even has a dam so I am sure they will be happier with her :)

Well that is it for now. Off to work, if I can remove this grey kitten from draped over my arm!

Hey Madds, eh its been a while! How are you doing these days? I logged into LJ for the first time in ages last month - funny how something that used to be such a big part of my life just kinda faded away.

Thanks for the congrats :) Things sure have changed a lot in the past few years!!!

I know, it's same for me with LJ, kind of forgot about it! I'm pretty good, studying accounting at uni, will hopefully finish mid next year. Other than that doing lots of knitting, life is pretty unexciting but good hehe.

Accounting? How boring :P I was planning on enrolling in environmental science next year but this little one has put that on hold. Hopefully in 2012...

Glad to hear things are going well for you :)
