Another photo shoot for hippotapea today!
Our hippopotapea (or hippopoaprune as he is now) measured 10 weeks! And was waving little hands at us. hippopotapea then tried to eat a hand or two, and kicked their little legs at me. It was all so cute, I melted with cuteness.
As you can see my little hippopotapea is clearly super cute.
So as he’s measuring 10 weeks, I’m no longer seeing Mr F at the clinic, he is sending me to another clinic with a specialist in Gestational Diabetes. He said he wants me to go there, in Liverpool until 20 weeks. I wanted to go to my local hospital, but he said he wasn’t sure if they could handle my early diabetes properly. It’s such a long way though, 1.5hours each way. I’m worried, but he tells me not to worry, and that it’ll be fine.
But in exactly 14 days Mr F does my cerclage, I’ll get one scan beforehand apparently to make sure little one is OK. Then it’s needle time.
When people ask me if I’m going on a honeymoon I don’t know what to say, I can’t say that I’m having a cerclage, since most people don’t know I’m pregnant and wouldn’t know what a cerclage was anyway. We try to say that we’re having a couple of days in Liverpool but that gets some seriously weird looks.
We passed by the local antique shop today and saw the cutest little rocking horse. I’ve always wanted a rocking horse for the nursery, but I never got round to getting one. And then there was that one, just sitting outside watching me. It was only £15 and I was so tempted to buy it, but I didn’t. What would I do with it if…? I’m still half and half about going and having a look at it though. Why couldn’t it be there in another 20 weeks?
Incidentally, I had a look at what people were searching for to find me. My top search term is not tiny glimmers, or Gideon, or PPROM, nope, it’s Gruffalo! Gruffalo? I make one post about the book and attract hundreds of people a week with the search term? In fact this is a list of people’s most searched terms to find me today.
