Seems I let the cat out of the bag!!!
I “announced”, with a Facebook status change, that my Glugster and I are shopping for an engagement ring. Thassaright bunnies!! We are looking for a ring. Dunno when we’ll find it, and I dunno when he’ll pop the question once we’ve found it- but now you know.
We’re ring shopping.
Apart from that, this weekend past was a quiet domestic-type one. We re-potted my pot plants, that desperately needed bigger homes after years in my flat. We collected, “planted” and populated a koi pond with 10 baby koi- 5 of which we’ve already lost sadly. The dude at the pet shop provided substantial entertainment by trying to catch the specific koi I asked for with a big net on the end of a 2M long pole! And I baked cupcakes… of course.
We also visited my Sister B on Sunday for my Godson M’s 16th birthday cake and tea. Not a huge gathering, but relaxed and fun.
On the baby front- I have now started taking prenatal/ pregnancy vitamins (pregnavit)… but I need to exercise more, eat better- though I have started eating breakfast and I’ve cut down in my coffee intake… and I have to lose some weight.
I didn’t even know this stuff existed!!!
Ooer, and then there’re all the other things that come with age!
˜ Ovulation can become irregular
˜ The risk of a multiple pregnancy increases
˜ The risk of early- and often unnoticed- miscarriage increases
˜ The risk of gestational diabetes increases
˜ The possibility of needing a C-Section is higher
˜ Chromosomal abnormalities are a higher risk
To be honest, I am trying at this point not to think about it all too much- but it’s mainly these risks that made us decide not to wait much longer before trying for a baby!
Scary shit, bunnies…!
