Well Miss A seems to be OK with the fact that there is a baby in Mummy’s tummy and hopefully soon (or not so soon, I am going to be 13 weeks tomorrow) she will have a baby brother or sister. She is such a loving girl and always makes me proud. There isn’t a day goes by that I appreciate her.
Miss A often tells me that there is a baby in my tummy. She says to me “There is a baby in your tummy Mummy” randomly. She mentions the ultrasound machine and that it was on my tummy.
I hope that Miss A doesn’t get jealous of the time that I have to spend with the baby, I will obviously try and include her as much as I can. I am sure she would want to get involved!
I don’t have any worries about their relationship as I will try and make sure that they get enough attention. The one thing that worries me at the moment is that I think I will have to give birth alone as where we live I have no one here that I would fully trust to look after Miss A or know of anyone that would want to look after her, especially if I go into labour in the middle of the night.
I am not frightened to give birth alone as I won’t be alone as the midwife will be there but I feel as if it isn’t fair on my fiance for not being there, when I told him it is looking like I will have to give birth without him there, he wasn’t happy at all. He wants to be there..but what with family being so far away, there is no chance of us being able to have someone to look after Miss A. This makes me sad as he was absolutely fantastic when I was giving birth to Miss A. I don’t want to take this experience away from him but I don’t know what else can be done.
Anyway. As long as Miss A is happy and the baby is born healthy I am sure we can get through anything. I am having some bleeding at the moment, spotting and discharge so let’s just hope that that is just something I am prone to as I had it when pregnant with Miss A. Scan is on Wednesday so we shall find out how the little one is then!
