Stalks in Black and White

So it turns out my lack of energy to write/knit over the past 3 months has been quite possibly mainly hormonal. Or something just triggered a habit change.

The big news is that Mrs Kirsty Holloway is having a mini-Holloway – of the baby variety. Our current due date is early January, the exact date flickers on nearly every appointment. I’m currently 13 weeks and 6 days along and my husband and I are really excited.

So the current plans are to investigate baby related patterns and start knitting. Bub has started giving me a pregnancy related bump and I now look the pregnant side of fat. Which is actually surprisingly fun and increases my excitement a lot.

We first met bubs a couple of weeks ago when we went for our first scan. We were both surprised how human it looks and amazed watching the heart beating.

Just 2 weeks later bub has grown again. This week bub didn’t want to stay still and measuring took a bit longer then they should. The shape of bub’s head has also changed and the whole body has grown again. I couldn’t believe how quickly the bub is growing.

13 weeks

With the end of the first trimester comes the return of my energy and the ability to hold down my breakfast. I appreciate the ability to keep breakfast in my stomach so much more then I used to. Naps also became a more regular occurrence – so I also gained a new appreciation for sofas.

At nearly 14 weeks, I now feel more human again and the little human is growing bigger so I’m presuming that makes me more human than normal?

So this is a pre-apology for the baby related content that will be appearing…

Anyway, I’m off to do some overtime at work to go pay for yarn/other craft materials this pregnancy is going to inspire. 🙂

  1. I’d wondered where you’d got to! Congratulations!

    By the way, the “can’t believe how fast it’s growing” bit? Never stops. We say that nearly every day about our 3.5 yo.
