Baby Caterpillar - 9 Weeks.


Ah! I'm so behind already. My posts were spot on, ready to go, when I was pregnant with Jydan, and now I keep forgetting to post. This pregnancy, although I'm only 9 weeks, has flown so far! Or I'm too exhausted to jump on the computer! So here's to a few catch up posts...
Just when I thought sickness was easing up, it hit me like a tone of bricks. And worse. Grocery shopping.. red raw meat... woah! Poor Jydan, I swung the trolley to Tim and ran off to the public toilets. I could hear Jydan screaming as I ran off. Poor thing is still a bit anxious about what's going on. Especially because he had no idea why Mummy just ran off. 
He's doing better with Mummy being sick though. And he has been such a little angel while I've been so tired. 

I've had a little peak to see if there's any names that I like out there. We have the girls name picked from when I was pregnant with Jydan and if he was a girl, but we don't have a boys name at all. Still plenty of time though, but from what I've looked at, there hasn't been any boys name that's stood out. Coming up with Jydan was hard enough!

Aww, I hope you feel better soon!! Do you have seasickness bands around there? I had a hard time finding some but they helped me a lot. They press on pressure points on your wrist and calm the belly.
