I’m posting at an unusual time this week as I’m heading to our family holiday house tomorrow for a few days and we won’t have any internet (typical life in remote NZ!).
Before I leave, I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and I hope that you have a great time celebrating with friends and family!
Where will you be for Christmas this year?
And perhaps more importantly, what will you be baking for Christmas?
We’re doing a potluck style this year and I’m bringing:
I’m looking forward to a big feast and I have no doubt baby bump is too. After all, it is baby’s first Christmas. 😜
Speaking of baby, I’m now 26 weeks pregnant and as a little Christmas surprise I thought it was time I shared the gender of our baby with you! I was going to keep the gender of our baby a surprise for you until the end, but then I thought you might be like me and want to know now. Unlike a lot of other pregnant mums I know, I was too impatient to wait to find out the gender of our little bump and couldn’t wait to find out.
So in case you’ve been wondering…
Even though I was convinced we were having a boy, my doctor confirmed that we are indeed having a little girl. Given that I have 9 nieces and only 2 nephews it’s perhaps no surprise! We are so excited to meet her!!
She loves to kick, roll, punch and swirl around and I love feeling her every movement.
So far life being pregnant has been really great. The first 4 months were challenging at times with severe
morning all-day sickness, but over the last two months I’ve been feeling as good as new. I’m sure this will change again as I hit the third trimester…
As for names, we’re still deciding. At least now we can narrow it down to just one sex. Have you got a favourite girl’s name?
So now you know! I promise to share more baby bump updates as time goes on.
Apart from keeping in touch here and here, I won’t be back again until after Christmas. So I hope you have a great one and I look forward to hearing all about your day. May it be filled with much love, laughter and delicious treats!
Lots of love and merry cheer to you,
