…growing a baby inside you is not all that conducive to good blogging.

Sorry about that.

We will be back later today or tomorrow though with EVEN more good news. Promise.

    Thank you one and all for your congratulations. In all honesty, it's all still sinking in, and
    I've been feeling UTTERLY disgusting (when does the 'glowing' stage start please?), so I've not really had the chance to get excited yet – but you lot have really made my day and helped it sink in just a tad, so thank you!

    oh so many congratulations to you. I was wondering where you were… to the extent that I was going to email Lucy Stendall to check all was well this week if you'd not posted. You were missed.

    Congrats! I was getting to the stage where I was going to email you to make sure everything was OK. I even maybe thought you were secretly Kate Middleton and after the wedding you were too busy.

    What can I say? I have a big imagination.


    Have you been twirling your wedding ring around yourself yet?

  19. Posted May 11, 2011 at 9:10 pm | Permalink

    It's official a) you're pregnant b) your readers love you c) Becca has a wild imagination

    I love ALL of the above and I really cannot contain my excitement any longer. This little one is not going to be just any other baby xxx

    PS. I can eat your chocolate if it makes you feel better?

  20. Posted May 11, 2011 at 9:26 pm | Permalink

    Becca you're right – she's been cavorting about on a yacht in a bikini, too busy to post after her royal nupitals!

    Love it. Although I love the truth more. Can you make the baby's initials AOW?

  21. Posted May 11, 2011 at 9:39 pm | Permalink

    Erm Anna…would the first name of AOW baby be Anna or Ant by any chance? Nothing gets past me…

    Would love to speculate further but I have eyelashes to curl…and squeal at xxx

    My Boy thinks the picture shows it is clearly a boy.

    No honeybunch. That's his or her feet.

    There is also Amelia or Augusta or Agatha or Austin or Adam or Archibald.

    @becca – as much as I think Andy would be EVER so proud (ahem) If that was proof that he was a boy, I think that it's slightly more likely that you're right and that is just feet.

    @Lucy – keep your hands off my chocolate.

    To everyone else – thanks again – you are all ridiculously lovely.
