Monday was a big day for us as we had our second ultrasound and discovered we are having a baby boy! To say we were overjoyed does not even cover it, although as both John and I are more private in our excitement and I think the sonographer was more than a bit disappointed at our quiet smiles at the news. After the scan we headed straight over the Next to buy some blue baby grows, although I have to say I am on autopilot to the pink section and looking at boys clothes did feel somewhat unnatural. We shared the exciting news with our family and friends, once of which gave us a smug 'I told you so' as the ever-reliable chain test she had undertaken so many weeks ago had proven correct.
Apart from these events, however, this week has been a quiet one. With the return to work of my closest mummy friend and my parents away in Spain, I decided to use the down time to sort through the two (yes TWO!) suitcases of Holly's old clothes. As I picked through the tiny vests and pretty summer dresses my daughter had spent her baby days in, I did feel a twinge of sadness with the realisation my baby is no longer a baby. However with the bit of money we gained from selling her newborn clothes, we now have something to put towards Baby Boy's new wardrobe. Any excuse to go shopping!

The weekend was spent reorganising the house with my hubby and although I didn't really do much lifting I was shattered afterwards. I am 20 weeks now, and the bump has certainly made itself known, both visually and physically! Although I am smaller than I was at this stage with Holly, being only 4ft10 gaining much weight at all makes a huge difference. However I am feeling a lot more kicks now, which is lovely.
So that's my weekly roundup. Head over the Mummy, Daddy & Me and share yours.
