Baby, come back...

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted.  I've just been completely knackered after work and not wanting to do a thing on the weekends.  I feel like a bum.  Except for the prenatal workout DVD I got (which is amazing), I just kind of hang out in the evenings.

So just a quick one, I have "discovered" ebay.  I've purchased a few things on there before, but they were always "buy it now."  I never wanted to bid in the auctions.  I think I was a bit nervous about it.  Anyway, I needed maternity clothes and thought I'd look on ebay.  I don't need brand new ones as long as they fit and are in good shape and they cost a fortune over here.  !!!!!!! There are loads of really cute bundles of maternity clothes separated by size.  I went crazy bidding and then realized that I don't want to win everything.  Luckily, I ended up with 1 bundle and 1 pair of jeans, both for 99p (plus shipping of course).

Such a steal.  I can't wait to get my new clothes!!

Meet Peanut...

Hey all.  I know it's been ages since I've posted (again) but I was too afraid to post in case my secret slipped out.  Believe me, it's all I've been thinking about for the last 8 and a half weeks!

Anyway, my secret?  Oh you know, I'm just going to have a baby.  Nothing big or anything...

Steve and I went for the first scan today and were completely amazed at this little thing the size of a plum bouncing around in my belly!  Especially when I can't even feel it.  The whole thing is surreal.

Here's what he looks like.

He looks like he's sucking his thumb!  =]

I keep saying "he" because I just have that feeling.  Plus I'm kind of hoping it is a boy.  We have a stellar boy name picked out, which I won't be sharing until peanut is born and we know for sure.

Anyway, I just wanted to let the cat out of the bag.  It's been incredibly difficult not saying a word before this!!
