“You’re Doctor Who!”

Morning, readers.  This is a post by Aisling.  That’s all you’re getting.

Ha.  (Love you).  Enjoy:

 

One week ago today…

5am – I wake up. I stare wide-eyed at the ceiling, alternating between staying really, really still so as not to wake Phil with my ridiculous wriggling and blowing into his ear trying to wake him up so he’ll smother me with a pillow keep me company.

7am – I’ve woken Molly the cat (who sleeps wedged into the space between Phil and I) so she’ll think it’s time for her breakfast. When she thinks it’s breakfast time, she squeaks like broken chew toy…I’m hoping that the squeaking will wake Phil up. It doesn’t, for the first time in the history of time ever. Pffft.

8am – I’ve been up to pee 4 times already, tiptoe-ing each time as I know if I wake him up going to the loo, he’ll know it was on purpose. Having given up on all the stealth techniques available to me, I think ‘sod it’ and *accidentally* trip over the yowling cat on my way to the bathroom, causing the hairdryer to fall on the floor.

8.01am – Phil wakes up and gives me the stinkeye. Rolls over and goes back to sleep.

8.02am – Phil wakes up again and catches my eye. He grins at me, throws a pillow in the general direction of Molly, who has now broken the sound barrier, and jumps out of bed.

8.30am – We eat bacon baguettes for breakfast, washed down with a mug of coffee for Phil and decaf Earl Grey for me. Molly has eaten her entire bowl of food and is now staring expectantly at my plate. She doesn’t bother staring at Phil’s, there’s never anything left on it. She’s a quick learner. I throw her the fat from my bacon and let her lick the butter from the bread I don’t eat. (What? She’s CUTE.)

9.30am – I’m bathed, dressed, made up and have my shoes on. I’m sitting on the edge of the sofa doing what can only be described as ‘jiggling’. Phil reminds me gently that we don’t need to leave for two and a half hours. I sulk. Then I make the most of the fact I’ve got my shoes on and hang the washing out to dry. It’s such a beautiful day. Not a cloud in the sky, warm and breezy, the sun shining brightly as the birds sing and the sheep chase each other in the field at the end of our garden. I’m standing in the middle of the garden with eyes closed and head tilted to the warmth of the sun, like a sunflower. I feel Phil sneak up behind me and he envelopes me in a massive bear hug. He whispers, ‘What a perfect day’, in my ear and we both grin and giggle in anticipation.

11.40am – I argue (mostly with myself as Phil stopped listening to me 20 minutes ago) about why we should leave NOW. What if there’s traffic? What if there’s no space in the car park? What if those cows break through their fence again and block the ONLY ROAD OUT OF THE VILLAGE FOR THREE HOURS? I finish listing the reasons we should leave early just as it gets to the previously agreed leaving time. Pfft.

12pm – We leave. I squeal and dance. In the car I turn ‘Summer of 69’ up stupendously loudly and sing my heart out with the roof down. Phil laughs at me and joins in at the chorus, miming the drumming on the steering wheel.

12.40pm – It’s time. But it’s busy. Waiting ensues.

12.55pm – Waiting.

1.05pm – Phil says, ‘You’ve got two hearts! YOU’RE DOCTOR WHO!’

1.06pm – The sonographer says, ‘Your baby is a little girl.’

1.07pm – We cry.

Our baby girl is due in January. She will be called Stella Temperance Alsopp and she has very long legs, apparently. Like her Mum.

    Oh Aisling sweetheart, happiest person ever right here, crying in bed with the door opened to let the cat in so I can have someone to hug in celebration! Beautiful, amazing news – another little Any Other Woman in the making!!

    I can’t really even begin to express how happy I am for you – you are going to be the most wonderful mother (you can do cat babies so that’s near enough right?) And Miss Super Long Legs will have more scary, over excited aunties than she’ll know what to do with!

    Hi Stella ***giggles***.

    Roald Dahl’s Dad (he wrote really good book about a Giant…you should get your Dad to read it to you and Mummy) used to play him classical music when his Mummy was pregnant. You’ll come out knowing all about feminism and what books to read. That is just SO cool.

    Please tell your Mummy and Daddy that it’s absolutely amazing news.I got a bit teery and, like Esme, there is a pretty good chance I’ll sit grinning like a mad woman all day at work. We all think you’re a very lucky baby to have such long legs…you’ll probably be amazing at Netball, AND your Mummy and Daddy have an amazing garden for you to play in. Your birthday parties are going to be AMAZEBALLS.

    We’re all looking forward to meeting you lots and lots x x x

      Also I should add I thought you were going to a Dr Who convention and I almost didn’t read it.

      • Posted September 11, 2012 at 10:07 am | Permalink

        Becca, BEST COMMENT EVER. I just threw the BFG at Phil and told him to start reading. He may or may not have thrown it back at me. In fairness, he is trying to watch the tennis highlights, so maybe not the time.

        Thank you so, so much. (Can we still be friends even though you don’t like Doctor Who?)

    Congratulations Aisling and Phil (and Molly – I’m sure she’s super excited too, in a furry kind of way)! What happy, wonderful news to wake up to in the morning. Little Stella will be so beautiful and you’ve picked such a lovely name for her. Now put your feet up Aisling and eat lots of cake!! Evie xx

    • Posted September 11, 2012 at 10:11 am | Permalink

      Mmmm….cake. Thanks Evie, I think she’s pretty much the prettiest baby in the world already, naturally!

      Molly and our other cat, Lucy, are thoroughly put out by the fact when they lie in my lap now, they get booted off in a matter of minutes! In Stella’s defence, I think the kicking is her saying she likes the purring, but the cats aren’t convinced…

    So so happy for you xxx

    • Posted September 11, 2012 at 10:13 am | Permalink

      Thanks L, I love the celestial reference! The name means ‘Star who is patient and kind’ (that’s our favourite definition so far, so we’re sticking to it!).

      My dad calls her ‘Tinie Temperance’, like the rapper. Every time he does it I die of cuteness overload.

      Can’t wait to see you this weekend, birthday girl.

    Huge, HUGE congratulations Aisling and Phil! What lovely news to wake up to on a sunny Tuesday morning. Our 20 week scan is next week and we’re still undecided about finding out the sex… there’s a small chance you may have just swayed me (again – I keep changing my mind!)

    2013 is clearly the year of the AOBaby – a new generation is on it’s way :) So incredibly happy for you and a lovely baby girl with a gorgeous name to boot (is it wrong that I’m already jealous of her super long legs?!)

    Hope pregnancy is treating you well so far xx

          The playdate is a date!

          If you manage not to find out, Hollie, I will be SO impressed and just a little jealous! We have never considered not finding out if/when we were pregnant and a little bit of me envies those who can wait for the surprise!

          Still, we get to go crazy buying the right colour clothes so s’all good!

          Feeling ace at the moment, have had a pretty textbook pregnancy so far and Braxton Hicks started last week – my midwife says I’m the only expectant mother she’s known who finds them fascinating and enjoys the sensation! Phil says I’m just weird. ;-)

          Hope you both (and all three babies!) are feeling good and doing well.

    Huge congratulations to you both. Hmm I wonder how close our due dates are we’re also due in January. We had our scan last week too. Didn’t find out what we’re having though other than it is definitely a baby and not a lobster (weird dream – you getting them too).
    Hope you have been keeping well.
    Congratulations again.

    • Posted September 11, 2012 at 10:33 am | Permalink

      Oh, congratulations to you too! Very pleased that it’s a baby, not a lobster. Phew. So far my best/weirdest/BEST EVER pregnancy dream was that it was triplets and they were Prince Harry’s. Phil was well impressed. Not.

      We’re due towards the end of January, I’m trying not to fixate on the date too much as both my brothers and I were between 14 and 19 days late! Patience is a virtue and all that.

      I hope everything has gone well for you so far and continues to do so xx

    Oh I was also going to say to Hollie – we didn’t find out the sex (baby James was born on 30th aug) & so many people thought we were mad! It was hard but we loved the surprise & finding out when he was placed on my tummy was magical. Can see the appeal of finding out as well though… Tough decision but whatever you decide will be right for you, all the best for your scan! Xx

    Okay, so I am not online. I am on holiday, and I promised myself I would stay offline, then my sister logged on for something, so I thought I’d take a peek. Then I saw the title Dr Who and that it was penned by Aisling, and I thought “I can’t not read about Dr Who penned by Aisling, because that’s clearly going to be all kinds of fricking awesome”. Then I read the post. And it was SO MUCH MORE AWESOME THAN I EXPECTED. I shed a little tear and danced around on my chair. Then I had to explain to my family that I was dancing/crying because someone I have never met is having a baby, and NOW my Mum is casting worried “Oh good lord am I going to be a Granny” looks at me… (she isn’t)

    So anyway, the upshot of this here is OHMIGOD OHMIGOD CONGRATULATIONS! I’m so very very happy for you both. Such joy is entirely deserved.

    Aisling, tears in my eyes as I read this. Such wonderful news – huge congratulations to you and Phil. Stella Temperance is a beautiful name and I’m sure she will be gorgeous, just like her mum. We had our 20 week scan at the end of August and I remember well those intervening hours before the scan :) Yay for baby girls born in January! xx
