Sam’s Morning sickness

15 weeks into it

(the pregnancy)

and I still feel sorry for sam..

she’s had terrible morning sickness which does leave me wondering if it’s a girl..? Any truth in that old wife’s tale? Comments below please….

Does having heavy bouts of morning sickness edge the bets more towards there being a girl or not?

That would be a no according to http://morningsicknessinfo.org/boy-or-girl ….

Check out this Morning sickness YouTube clip

So… Morning sickness boy or girl ?

That is the question..

Anyway Thank goodness the worst is over, fingers crossed though because they do say that morning sickness normally dies down after your first trimester… So let’s hope..

How did you mums out there get on with morning sickness. ?.. would be Interesting to find out numbers of mums out there who had and didn’t have morning sickness.

Here is a couple of stats for you…

Up to 85 percent of pregnant women experience morning sickness. Doctors believe rapidly rising levels of the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin, which is released by the placenta, cause the symptoms, according to the National Institutes of Health.

We’re Pregnant!

We’re pregnant!….

I love how us men say this but it’s the woman who has to go through it.. Really guys let’s be honest; we have it pretty easy.

Anyway…

Excited, nervous, over the moon.. A few words to describe the feeling that I and I imagine all men who actually want to have a baby in the first place and who have not stupidly made a girl pregnant because they either have no respect or no clue on the implications of not being a ‘dad’ when it comes to the crunch, will have, not on them but to the mother and child. Strong views from me because there are TOO MANY MEN out there who don’t think about the affect them not being a real father when they mess up and impregnate a girl has on THE CHILD! I’m sure I’ll write another blog about the meaning of the word ‘father’ one day :)

Moving off my high horse and onto to better things…

There will be another member of the little miss scrabbled family joining us around the 2nd April 2015. Lots to do and plan family wise and work wise but after the problems we’ve had which I won’t go into detail about , we are so happy about the news.

But what will that mean for our family.. Well I bet most of you in this position start to think the same way.

The personal stuff

  1. The house is too small?
  2. Where can we move to?
  3. Can we afford the bigger mortgage?
  4. What are all of our options?
  5. Is the car big enough? (yes to that.. We have a Renault scenic and it’s a great size).
  6. What about Heavanie and her college? We can’t move too far away yet.. Till she finishes.. 2014-09-24 14.52.58

The family business stuff

Who will write the plaques? Sam currently does all the writing..

How are we going to cope with the addition to the family and the initial stages after the new baby comes into the world?

On this front, I hope that we are in control because we have been planning this for a while. Our business plan, believe it or not outlined the new baby in the plan, along with how we cope with the addition.

Here’s what we plan to do:

We are currently looking for an apprentice who will shadow me and Sam. They will take on the preparation and completion phases of the orders so, preparing the plaques with paint, painting the embellishments etc.

Christine, our admin girl who has worked with me for years doing 15 odd hrs a week will help us a little more with thingssuch as…

  • Mapping out the daily orders
  • Getting the labels ready for print
  • Communication with the clients / customers.

So there we have it .. The countdown begins
