Meet Peanut!

Hi Everyone, Just an update on my new life on the Gold coast in Queensland (Sounds good doesn't it!) Lots of sun and heat, we are loving our new troical paradise house. We have frogs in the bamboo and so many different types of bromeliads. I will take photos in my Christmas holidays and give you a proper update!

My little baby that is growing inside me is slowly getting bigger and my belly shape has changed, i have a little raised bit down low, how exciting! I haven't had actual morning sickness, just a feeling of nausea and wanting to chuck a fair bit if i don't eat bland food but as yet no vomit! Very luckly! It is amazing that i got to see it when i was only 8 weeks, and it's heart was beating away... i can't wait till i know everything is okay at the 12 week scan and i can settle in to being pregnant - it feels a little foreign at the moment and i get sad and worried a bit.

I am finding it hard trying to work out what food i can and can't eat now, i love soft cheese and seafood so much and only being able to eat freshly cooked seafood is hard, i also miss smoked salmon....oooo i love it! On pizzas and in pasta... oh well - atleast i am keeping my baby safe!

We have decided not to find out the sex of the baby and keep it a surprise for us... so i am looking for a generic baby room theme without yellow! I have almost decided on Tropical Rainforest, with all the animals and tropical plant decals on the walls and lush dark greens, i think it will look awesome! What do you think?

I have a two weeks at home in January that i am really looking forward to! I can get my craft room sorted and finally unpack properly (i know we are terrible! The new Playstation we just bought is not helping our unpacking either!). Hopefully i can also actually make something and do a post about it! I haven't given up completely! Have a Merry Christmas everyone and stay safe!

My first ultrasound looked just like a gummy bear, so I call mine "Gummy." I'm glad things are going well. Isn't it amazing to hear the heartbeat?!

I think a tropical theme would be lovely for a new little bubba.
Hope you have a wonderful christmas!

I loved waiting to find out. A tropical, green theme sounds fantastic.

I don't know how I missed that last post!!!

(December is such a crazy month...that's my only excuse).

I am so excited for you! New house, new job, new! You're in for a great year, Katy!

And now that is officially the comment with the most exclamation points!!!

Hope the nausea goes away soon; for me it did right after the 12th week. Can't wait to see photos!

hey little bub, can;t wait to see more of you!
I felt sick for ages in each of my pregnancies but never did the chuck. I often used those sea sickness bands you can get from chemists - don't know if they truely worked or if it was just a placebo effect, but they helped me.

Oh how exciting to see your babies precious little heart beating away.....just wait until the 12 week scan, you'll be amazed at the tiny, perfect baby that's taken the place of the mysterious little creature that's there at the moment!

Here's hoping you keep vomit's no fun!

So happy for you - you will be an amazing mum ! For me the most important thing during the preggie time was to stay calm and rest and relax when you can .... in a few short months there will be little or NO TIME for such pursuits - what a great 2010 you will have - best le xox

Congratulations on your pregnancy and yes I'm incredibly jealous that you are in Queensland. A tropical theme for the babies room sounds like a wonderful idea.
