1st class

So last night we attended our 1st Antenatal class. It was actually so nice to meet other people of all  kinds of personalities who are all in the same boat. Most of the couples are a month or two ahead of us. Our friend Veronica and Andy are 3 weeks behind us, so we the ‘youngest’ of the group in baby growth. It’s all very interesting. Even the men had a fab time laughing and sharing. I think these classes are so important. It make you feel ‘normal’ and not set apart which really helps when you feeling quite different from your normal self.

Des Meyer is a funny lady and she really includes the guys with every detail which makes is all the more interesting, especially for them. The one guy, after des mentioned that we will have 500 grams added to boob weight, shouted “on each boob?!” So funny.
Not to mention how she explained whats going on with our bodies so the men understand why we wee so much and why we might complain on back ache or sore feet! So that communication is definitely such a bonus.

Highly recommend it! Oh and the serve the most amazing biscuits ever 😉

20 Weeks update

WEEK 20! We are half way there.

I can’t believe its gone so quickly. On saturday we had a nice long swim in the ocean for the 1st time since the pregnancy and I must say we both enjoyed it VERY much. Once it get’s warmer here in Durban I am sure it will become a weekly activity.

On Monday, the day these photographs were taken, was a ‘solid’ day. Meaning my stomach felt solid and hard. Almost like my skin will tear and I am struggling with a head cold so was off sick that day (hence the fabulous expression)

This past weekend was the 1st time I felt really pregnant. Baby is growing so quickly and we cannot wait to see it in the scan on the 16th July. So I will update as soon as we have the pictures and the sex of the baby!! whoo hoo
