So, I bet you’re wondering. WHO is Ogol?
I won’t leave you in any suspense.
THIS is Ogol:
Ogol is the much wanted FINAL member of our family, who is currently living it up in my tum and who has been giving me the worst morning sickness I could have imagined.
Why Ogol? Well, you can thank BC for that.
Because I have had such terrible morning sickness, I didn’t wait to tell BC that I was pregnant. I had to be able to explain why mum couldn’t play, why mum wouldn’t take him to the park, why mum was lying on the couch, or in bed AGAIN. OR why mum was throwing up in the kitchen sink (sad, but true)….
I told Bean too, but he’s not that interested. If it’s not a Wiggle, or a Clue (as in Blues Clues), if he can’t draw on it or climb on it, well then he’s just not that fussed – I am sure things will be different when the baby is here!
BC named the baby Ogol. I don’t know why. But it’s cute. And it’s stuck.
He asks me at least once a day “How’s Ogol?” and he was thrilled to see the photo above that I just brought home an hour ago following my 12 week scan – which in fact turned out to be an 11 week and 4 day scan as my dates were a little out.
I was very nervous about the scan. Terribly worried that given the horrible morning sickness I’ve been having (which I didn’t experience at ALL with the two boys) that maybe I was having twins. Or triplets. Or Octuplets! Or Or…..
Suffice to say there was a loud, audible sigh of relief from me when the sonographer could quickly confirm that there was indeed, just one little heart beat racing in there.
And racing it was. In perfect range for his/her age. Everything else was also in perfect order. She even gave Ogol’s brain an extra look over after I told her I had a child with CP.
But what a wriggler! Ogol barely stayed still the whole time of the scan. A mini acrobat in action. It was amazing to see.
We need to wait 3 days for the ‘official’ scan results, but the sonographer assured me that if she’d seen anything untoward today, she would have informed me.
So. There you go. Ogol is coming. We are thrilled, excited but also, just a little bit terrified. Baby no 3 will definitely complete our family, but he/she will also keep us very, very busy!!! .
