The past few weeks has been lovely for me as I can feel baby aka Spud kicking inside me! Yeah! And they are getting stronger too!
I first felt it when I was at work a month ago. It felt very strange at first.. like bubbles..
I felt two kicks! I was so excited I had to text my husband, Ali, to tell him!
Ali has been wanting to feel it too but Spud always stops kicking whenever he puts his hands on my bump!
This morning, he finally felt it! We were both lying in bed (it was about 6.30am!) and I could feel Spud kicking me. So I just took his hand and placed it on my bump. We waited for a min and Spud was soon kicking happily! He was so happy when he felt it! I was happy too!
We also found out that Spud is a girl! Ali was most pleased as he was hoping to have a daughter!! I am not too bothered about the sex of the baby.
So now that we know that it is a girl, we can finally start planning! The room that will be the nursery is already pink in colour so that will save us a job from re-painting it. Ali is going to paint some murals on the wall and we will also have some pictures on it too.
We also went to an Almost New baby sale today and got a few good bargains!
Baby play mat/gym – £4!
A baby bouncer – £2!
A baby bath support – £2!
An electric bottle steriliser and bottle warmer – £5 (It’s from Tommee Tippee!! We wanted to get the set that comes with milk bottles too and it cost £65!!).
Some baby clothes – £6! They all seem fairly new. Most of the clothes we bought are white in colour as the seller had a boy but that’s ok! I will get a brand new outfit for Spud for when she comes home from the hospital 🙂
In the meantime, I will be crossing off checklist, getting the essentials and the odd ‘treat’ for Spud. We are going to be those parents who will not buy EVERYTHING brand new for the baby as I think it is such a waste of money for things that will only last for a few months! It will be eBay or Almost New sales for us. Sorry Spud, but we are doing this so you can have more £££ when you grow up!!! 😀
