At last I can share the wonderful exciting news
Rebecca and Antoni are expecting again
She is now 23 weeks and little one is due 14th January
It is truly wonderful to be able to say this and although the weeks leading up to this have not been without their trials obviously due to the traumas with Rose, those mile stones have now been passed and I must say that she is being well looked after by her maternity team, who have offered her scans etc every 4 weeks and detection tests were carried out early, all with very positive results.
They are also giving extra consultations to her to make sure of her own well being and support for any concerns she may have, especially as it is tinged with sadness over Rose. I am relieved that they are doing this, especially with the damage caused by the cancer, so cardiologists, they even fitted her up with a halter for 24 hour testing, hematologists, you name it and she has been sent
Rebecca is now beginning to relax and the excitment is creeping in as she is now feeling movements.
We enjoyed looking through various baby sites together, planning our shopping trip as I am going over in a few weeks and building lists for all those necessary items and planning her baby shower in a couple of months.
Positively Blooming, as they say
I have been busy over the weeks making baby blankets, mainly smaller ones that can be used in a car seat or Moses basket, along with her caterpillar, which she was delighted with.
But now, even more exciting, at the 20 weeks scan they decided to find out what they were expecting
and.... drum roll........
It´s a boy!
I had fun looking through the Deramores site for yarns now we know what colours to have and together we choose various blends, including cotton and bamboo.
I shall just have to be patient now for it to arrive.
The delivery is quite good, about 5 days and with orders over 40.00, and it´s sooo easy to go over that! it is post free
In the meantime I have a couple of projects in mind so I don´t think I will have idle fingers.
Well better be off and start them then!
