I’m Pregnant!

Friday, 11 August 2006

Yes - Mr and Mrs Okui should have an additional member in the family soon. We found out yesterday morning! I did a home pregnancy test and a positive result appeared almost instantly. It was very unplanned, but we're so happy all the same.

No wonder I've been feeling different lately! I missed my period. I've been wanting to eat more often than usual. And now at least there's a good explanation why my tummy's not quite as flat as it used to be. :p

We've told our parents and they've done the grapevine thing with the relatives already. Lots of smiles and hugs all round, and jokes about becoming aunties and grandparents.

So today I'm gonna visit a gynae (my first time ever) for a checkup. My colleague was squealing when I told her the news and she's been showering me with useful advice since then. She bugged me to register with Babycentre.com, a really useful resource centre for a first time mother. My boss has offered to recommend good books on pregnancy and has been giving very detailed graphic descriptions of the birth process. [gulp]

Off I go!
