  1. Who put the bump in the…

    September 30, 2010 by Amy Hansford

    Continuing with publishing my previously hidden blogs, here’s what I was thinking back on 18th July 2010.

    I had a nosy through the March 2011 expectant parents group photos today. Lots of positive pee sticks and bumps.

    I had a bump last week. It was there – I couldn’t do my jeans up without discomfort. This weekend, it’s pretty much back down to my normal tum, albeit one where I’ve made good us of an all you can eat buffet.

    Part of me wants a tummy to hide from people – not sure why. I think it would be a good confirmation that things are actually happening. The rest of me knows full well that there should be a decent sized tum along soon, and it’ll be there a while!

    So this weekend’s lesson is one of patience.

  2. Pre-bump

    September 27, 2010 by Amy Hansford

    Continuing my transfer of blog posts from the Baby forums to my website, here’s what I was thinking on 17th July 2010.

    Yep, you guessed it – I’m still struggling to believe I’m pregnant.

    I have symptoms – I have that back back/hip things and a bit of Sciatica. Don’t worry, I’ll let my Osteopath know soon. I have a bloated tummy, but sometimes it’s bigger than others. I’m tired and generally in bed by 10pm (it’s always been about 12am as a standard), but other than that – who’s to know?

    So far we’ve told my sister, our bosses, my closest work colleague (who I sit next to and is 7 months pregnant) and a close friend. It feels silly telling more people. In some ways I’m busting to tell the world, in others; if I’m not sure if I really really am, how can I set up that expectation in others?

    Other than that, I have a blood test this Friday, my meeting with the midwife (team) on 11th August (the day after my birthday) and the first scan on 2nd September which seems an age away.

    For now, it’s a case of keeping an eye out for the bump!
