Desperate Housewife

Being a housewife is hardwork, well a good housewife anyway, cooking, cleaning, ironing!
I'm enjoying this time off and I think Spiros is too, he's moving around a lot now, Kev can feel the kicks too now.
I booked my theory test for my driving licence today, in 18 days, its different to NZ you can drive without your theory test, but you need it to sit before your practical test and get your licence. My instructor told me I should book my practical for the 2nd week in October, obviously he has faith in me.
We are off up North to Kev's parents place for the long weekend, which will be really good, a BBQ on saturday and catching up with everyone.

Lady of Leisure

I prefer Lady of Leisure to Unemployed

For the first time in my working life I am unemployed and not by choice. Yes my employers decided they "had to let me go because I wasn't a personality fit for the team". More like a pregnant woman who will be going on maternity leave for 6 months doesn't fit into their plan.
Because I was still on probabtion they could say that, basically I had no rights. I'm not going to fight for unfair dismissal as it probably won't be worth it and I need their references to get temping jobs until December and they know that.
Anyway on a positive note we got the house that we wanted in Hertfordshire so we are sorting out the contracts and lawyers and things now.

Apologies for the photo if you don't really want to see my bare belly, but there has been requests from NZ.
Me at 19 weeks and 3 days.

Lots of Kicking

I have been trying to post some photos, but there is something wrong with our internet connection and its just not working.
Little Spiros is becoming very active and especially likes kicking and elbowing me when I hop into bed at night. Mum started to freak me out by saying that it could be twins you know because sometimes they don't pick it up until later, I think I'm just carrying a lot of fluid thats why I'm so big.
The offer on our house has been accepted finally but in the meantime we have found something else which is much more exciting, it has the possiblity of a loft conversion.
Kev's brother Trevor is coming to stay this weekend with his wife Sharon and there daughter Harriet, should be a fun weekend.

Am I really that big?

I'm starting to get really paranoid about the size of my tummy, people at work are commenting on how big it is, and the girl who lives downstairs from us even asked if I was having twins!
Lots of people are asking me when I'm due and when I tell them 4th of Jan I always follow it up with I'm quite big for my dates. The comments of " I didn't show until I was at least 5 months" or "my wife wasn't as big as you" are starting to annoy me, its normally followed by, well you are short so its got no where to hide. Kev tells me I'm just being silly and I'm just being extra sensitive.

No it's not a boy!

Lots of people have been saying is it a boy? Because I keep on referring to "it" as a he.
Just to confirm we don't know what the sex of the baby is and we aren't going to find out, we want it to be a lovely surprise.
We just both refer to "it" as a he, its easier, and we do call him Spiros as well, at first he was Derek - because Nannie Pen thinks thats a great name, and we think its pretty cool too! but then we decided he was something more exotic like Spiros, he's a greasy fat hairy greek waiter!!

(by the way, we all hate Derek, just in case you didn't realize)
