29-4-2010 - 6 w 1 d Scan Today Calm, yet excited.  Excited, yet reserved.My mood while writing this blog:
Calm, yet excited. Excited, yet reserved.



Today is the day we will meet our little one for the first time. The appointment will be at 15:45 SA time. The nerves have not kicked in. Instead I have this calm. Have had it for the last week. Pretty sure the calm is not my own doing. This kind of calm comes from a more divine power . In my mind I have this image of God giving me a great big comforting hug and squeezing the fear and nerves right out of me.

Today is also the day where I actually threw up from the m/s for the first time. Thankfully it was first thing this morning (05:30am) and before I had breakfast. I have been feeling pretty rough from yesterday afternoon.

On another note, my DH will be leaving tonight to go away for work for 2 weeks. He really does not want to go and feel horrible for leaving me on my own when I am feeling this rough. Bless him! I have to take him to the airport after our appointment, so I will only be able to give an update on my scan later tonight.

So today is the day. If symptoms are any measure of how our little one is doing, s/he should be perfect. Off course experience will have me believe that symptoms are no measure of anything, but I am choosing to ignore it. I believe our scan will just be a normal routine appointment, like it is for millions of other parents in this world, with everything being exactly like it should be.

Eeeck! Only 6 and a half hours to go.

DiandClover - Thursday, 29 Apr
I love the calm you have surrounding and comforting you :) The question to me is how many - lol! I had a dream you were holding a lap full of babies - too many to count!! Lizette, we are surrounding you and your baby(ies) with so much love!! xo Di (and all the other IAP ladies - trust me, all of us - not all will have the time/ability to write to you today, but we're all with you! ;)

firsttimer - Thursday, 29 Apr
Hi lovey, you sound like you are doing fantastic! Actually being sick must be a good sign surely? I really do hope this is it Lizette. I'm so excited for you. I can't believe you are six weeks along, but it's probably going really slowly for you. I don't get on here that often anymore so I'm surprised by how much time has passed since I viewed your profile. I am with you in mind today honey, my fingers are so tightly crossed they hurt. Please let everything be good. And please ask for extra scans if you think it will help. I certainly did. As much as they are anxiety inducing, a week can be such a long time in pregnancy and you may get some comfort from some extra ones. Oooh, I'm so excited. Come on baby, mummy and daddy and loads of other women on IAP already love you! I'll be waiting for your update xx Take Care xx

pol - Thursday, 29 Apr
Will be thinking of you all day Liz. Like you, I'm sure it will be a routine appointment. This IS it this time - I'm sure of it xxx

wilmie - Thursday, 29 Apr
Good luck! Can't wait to hear that everything was perfect. Lots and lots of hugs ~W~
