Fingernails, eyelashes, button lips and Tinnie-tiny toes

0123_sheep
For the past four months I've been busy making little fingernails and eyelashes, button lips and tinnie-tiny toes.  It makes me smile to know that this little international "Bean" (for that's what we're calling it) has already travelled the world in it's protective home and taken in the sights of it's two Heimats*. I've been lucky, really, and whilst travelling through Australia I felt little more that a fatigue that did not respond well to protests, bribes or even stubborn objections.  I slept through much of my trip to Australia, my body demanding the bedtime of a two year old. That, and I briefly and scarily had a complete and utter aversion to coffee. There may have been tears at the thought of never, ever wanting go to near a Latte or Cappuccino again.  Thankfully that past and all that is left now is a growing Bub who loves Spinach. A lot.  Apparently I'm having Popeye's love-child.


* Heimat strictly translated means "Home", but a better translation would be a feeling and yearning that comes from your mothercountry, place or homeland.  Australian aboriginals would translate this as "country".

wow! congratulations, that is so fantastic. Don't find out whether it's a boy or girl, it is wonderful to have that mystery!! I loved that sleep during pregnancy, it was so deep and restorative. Congratulations again!!!

Oh congratulations!!! how exciting! I think you sleep that much to make up for the lack of it after the baby is born. I could sleep the entire day and then night when I was pregnant.

(Take two!) Ah, Clare! I'm *so* delighted for you. I must admit I was suspicious when I saw 'Up the Duff' on today's post ☺. BTW that's a great book for your first pregnancy. It's so bewildering at first but Kaz Cooke breaks it down for you. Are you going to have the baby in Germany or come home for a while? J x

Enjoy the resting, your body is busy ;)

How did I miss this? I saw the Kaz book and was like "oooh maybe Clare's pregnant", so I did a quick scroll down and what do you know!?! Congratulations! Happy news indeed!
