You know those horror stories that people tell you about when you're pregnant, the woman who had appendicitis at 81/2 months, the lady whose gums bled every day, the girl who broke her leg. Turns out that I am one of them. I fractured my ankle on Saturday afternoon. See that nice little piece of bone floating around on the right hand side of my ankle. That indicates the fragment of bone that was pulled off via a tendon/ligament. Yes I had an x-ray while pregnant. Very stressful but the dr in emergency told me it would be more drama later on if it didn't heal properly due to being misdiagnosed. As it was the x-rays took about one minute to do and they chucked a big lead jacket over my belly. And of course, I can't take painkillers. Very frustrating as I can't do anything by myself as I can't put any pressure on my foot. Maybe it is a lesson in teaching me to let go a little, to stop trying to control everything. Probably not. I don't really subscribe to that way of thinking. Fractured ankles are a bitch. Full stop.

This afternoon we met the man who is going to help us bring our baby into the world. We had lined up appointments with four obstetricians as we wanted to make sure we were comfortable and confident with our ob. Today was our first "interview" and it will be our last. No need for other appointments we have found our man! Bruce (yes that is his first name) is in his late 50s, calm, kind and professional. His lovely wife runs his office and both mr k and I feel we are in good hands. We saw Squigly wriggly again (our nickname for the bebe) and everything seems in order.

"Oh so there is a baby in there" were my first words at our scan. Yes, this baby is going to have a wise momma. I also realised that I need glasses, mr k and the sonographer kept trying to point out the heart beat but I couldn't see it. We also got our date, I am 10 weeks 6 days and bub is due the 2nd Feb 2011. mr k was quite tearful and overcome but I was more interested in seeing that all the bits and bobs were in the right places. This was quite strange as I am one of those sad sacks that those sentimental, god-awful ads actually work on. I can be sitting on the couch laughing Modern Family and then crying at the Telstra ad. Pregnancy has made this adorable facet of my psyche worse. But I digress, we have a baby, it has two arms and two legs and a head that looks like Skeletor. It has a heartbeat and everything seems more real.

I lurve rocket and bear's knitted baby blankets. They are adorable. I find my self all inspired to knit and crochet my little heart out and then remember I can't actually do either of those things. Thank goodness this lovely lady has an etsy shop.
On other news, I completed the dreaded Year 9 camp which wasn't as hard as I thought it would be...maybe first trimester exhaustion is on its last legs. Tomorrow we have our first scan - mr k is pretty excited. He can't think of anything else and wants to talk about it all the time while I am a little nervous and just want to think happy thoughts so I won't worry too much. Either way, we'll know tomorrow.
