Maternity series, 15 weeks

On Wednesday, I saw my obstetrician for my second antenatal check-up. I was nervous before the visit, but thankfully, we heard Newbie’s heartbeat and we even saw him/her moving on the ultrasound. It was such wonderful relief, and I left with amazing joy in my heart. Driving home, I couldn’t help but be filled with excitement at the thought of meeting Newbie. Another baby. Another child. What an incredible blessing.

These days, I am slowly regaining my energy, and my nausea is gradually improving, though it’s still hard to figure out what it is I actually want to eat. The boys have been so sweet, taking it in turns to say hello to the baby in mummy’s tummy, especially Angus who always has the same greeting: “Hi baby, it’s Angus, your older brother!” It is going to be fun watching them grow from a team of three to become a team of four. Just tonight, I was picturing our meals table being full at dinnertimes, with Angus and Pete on one side and Jamie and Newbie on the other. (Oh boy.)

We are also counting down the weeks till we get to find out whether we’re having a boy or girl. Seriously, we cannot wait. We’ve always found out with each of the four boys, and we’ve never regretted it for a moment. We’ve always had names picked up early in advance, and we’ve loved being able to call each child by their name throughout the latter half of the pregnancy. I secretly think it’s another little boy (and I’ve been right four times so far), but who knows! Either way, it will be amazing.

(Dress by Soon Maternity; cardigan by J Crew; necklace by Elk Accessories; and photos by my wonderful husband.)

The cardi is by J Crew. I love the colour – goes with so many things… (I think I’m wearing it in my profile photo actually.)

So exciting! You look fabulous, Ronnie. I’m so glad that the dreaded nausea is subsiding. I can’t wait to hear if it’s a boy or girl either!

Congratulations! You look absolutely amazing! So sweet that your boys are talking to the baby. Angus must have a strategy in saying the same thing! The baby will know for sure who Angus is! :)

Pink Ronnie October 29, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Funny, I never thought of it that way, but knowing Angus, he probably does have a strategy!

I never found out what we were having back then but I had names picked out for either sex :) You look beautiful!

Pink Ronnie October 30, 2012 at 1:02 pm

That’s wonderful Karen. I’m in awe of parents who manage to wait the entire 40 weeks before finding out! Rick and I are very bad at waiting and we both have personality types which like to be prepared way in advance. :)

Thanks Amy. :) I thought this would be a good way of actually making us taking photos of the bump this time round. Last time with Jamie, we only took photos twice during the pregnancy (once at 19 weeks and once at 39 weeks) and I kind of regret it now… anyways, thanks for your sweet words as always!

Congratulations! You look so beautiful! Gorgeous bump too. I loved finding out sex for both my girls. Calling them by their name during the last 20 weeks is so special – loved that too. Wishing you a beautiful rest of your weekend xx

Such a cute bump!!!
Just wondering, how to you make that lovely ‘pin this image’ graphic appear on your photos? That’s very clever and so pretty!

Reply

Pink Ronnie October 29, 2012 at 8:37 pm

Hey Kylie, it’s a Wordpress plugin which I then customised with my own image using css. Does that help?
Ronnie xo

Reply

Kylie @ Octavia and Vicky October 29, 2012 at 11:16 pm

Yes, and no :) I now know how you did it, but CSS and I are not friends LOL I haven’t really ever tried to learn how to make it work though. I’ll add it to my to-do list. Thanks for the reply x

Reply

Pink Ronnie October 30, 2012 at 1:10 pm

Do you use Wordpress? If you want, I can copy the CSS for you when you’re up to that stage?

Kylie @ Octavia and Vicky October 30, 2012 at 7:55 pm

Thanks so much! I will keep that in mind if I ever get around to learning CSS LOL
