Shocking News

I’m behind again in updating this blog, but I’ve been busy stitching!

I was a bad girl and started Fairy Idyll last week. I don’t have a scan of it yet, but hopefully soon, and I continue to work on the sub.

The shocking news referred to in the title is in regards to our baby. We had our ultrasound today which was really, really neat! We say arms, legs, toes, fingers, face, blood flow, heard the heartbeat and more. And, we found out we are having a girl!!! We even saw the proof for ourself. 🙂

but the shocking part is that we are further along than we thought — due date is not Nov 22nd, but instead October 5th. I am 25 weeks pregos. Apparently, we did not get pregnant the weekend I thought we did, but instead, it happened the time Kalonji was home before that (6 weeks prior).. So looks like I’ve just jumped ahead in the pregnancy!

I’m still shocked by this. I feel very sad that I was pregnant since mid-Jan and didn’t know until March and only wished I could have done better, ate better for the baby. During jan & feb i was still on the South Beach diet and i lost about 10lbs during then, was doing strenous exercise too. everything is fine with the baby, but i really wish i would have known.

But, we are excited to have a girl — the first girl in the family amongst all these boys — speaking of which, we are off to visit for the next couple of days. I’ll try to update again soon, but wanted to get this in quickly.

  1. Wow, Taneya I bet that was shocking! But how lovely that you know you’re having a girl, especially with all the boys in the family! About the early weeks when you didn’t know — it sounds like your baby is fine, so you did nothing wrong (and they’re pretty hardy in there too!). 🙂
