I had an off day yesterday, sometimes I feel a bit lonely. Maybe it's because this pregnancy wasn't planned and I still do the things I used to do. For instance, tonight there's a party at Jerome's beachhouse. Normally I'd go out of my mind, drinking all kinds of yummy stuff and taking the occassional party drug. But now, I go with my friends and drink cokes and sodas. And it's still fun but I feel out of it. So I called Sandy, and with her having a kiddo that'll turn 1 next month said she had that too and that it's normal and it's also my body preparing me for being a mother and focussing on myself and the baby. So after that phonecall I felt better. I'm still going out tonight but it'll just be different and that's ok. I contemplated not going out anymore and staying in, but I don't know what I'm gonna do with my time. Plus, I figured in due time, my belly will be so big, I won't be able to go out anymore so I'm just gonna enjoy myself while I still can.

Jerome is a sweetheart. I love him so much and it feels wonderful to form a family with him in 6 months. I always had boyfriends, ever since I was 14 but I never ever had a connection like this before. Sure, I was in love. Deeply in love. But this is just a whole other level.

I'm so tired and sick every day. But apart from that I feel great! My belly's getting bigger and I'm eating lots of food, mainly healthy but I also indulge everyday with a cookie, potato chips or icecream. There's just no stopping me, I've never felt my empty stomach the way I do now.

We also had our second echo and everything looked and sounded great. Ten fingers, ten toes and a perfect little head. Yay!

There are some people who have their doubts about me getting pregnant so quick and me being 28 and Jerome being 41. But I love him and I already love our little one. And I think we're gonna be great parents. There's some stuff going on in his life that has to be sorted out but I'm confident we'll get through this better and stronger.

We went to eat at his mom's place yesterday, his brother was there with his girlfriend and their baby. I feel so at home with his family and I'm very happy with that! In-laws can be great:-)

I'm 12 weeks pregnant! And I'm very happy about it. The first trimester was filled with suprise, angst, nauseousness and happiness (of course) but I'm feeling better and better and I cannot wait to meet my first born child. Jerome is very happy about it too, we both are. By the end of January we'll (if all goes well) have a little one!

This is me. 32-year old, mother of 1 and living in Europe. Going through life with one hell of a man, lots of love for my family and a pretty tight circle of mismatched friends. Very self-confident even though I don't know what the fuck I'm doing! (more)
