-9 M to 0 Year
This section will tell
you all about the period commencing -9 Months to when I was born!
On a very early Sunday morning end of May mommy did
the test to find out if she was pregnant as she had
missed out on a period during their short holiday to
Durban, South Africa in May 2005. And yes the stick
showed a positive result, mommy of course told daddy who
woke up of all the sounds mommy was making. He fell back
in his pillows again :-)
is the first ultrasound made of me! It was made in
the hospital on the 13th June 2005. The ultrasound shows
that I am about 2,38 cm big, very small hey!
is de second ultrasound which was made of me. Because
mommy turned 36 in week 19 of her pregnancy, daddy and
mommy asked for a so called combination test to check if
everything was okay with me. Within a few days after the
ultrasound and the blood test the positive news already
arrived! By the way on this ultrasound I am already 6,14 cm.
is the third ultrasound made of me. Daddy and mommy went
to Baby Dream in Alphen aan den Rijn on the 17th of
September because they wanted to see me again.
Also they were eager to find out if I really was of the
female sex which they both thought or if they were going
to see a little stick. They got a nice DVD of the whole
session and also a lot of pictures and it was really
clear to see that I was really a girl!
is one of the many loads of clothes washings mommy had.
Mommy got a lot of clothes from auntie Maaike and uncle
Tudor. My nephew Casper used these clothes, but a lot of
it is uni-sex or simply very nice so mommy took it with
her to wash for me to wear it. On the picture you can
also see a piece of my room, very soft blue carpet and
blue luxaflex. Some people might think that daddy and
mommy thought I was going to be a boy, but that is
absolutely not true! The upper level of our house is
blue and therefore my room is too! And blue is also
mommy's favorite color!
is the fourth and last ultrasound made of me. During the
regular check with the mid-wife on the 7th December it
appeared I was most likely lying in breech presentation.
The mid-wife decided mommy had to go to the hospital to
have an ultrasound taken. I most likely lay wrongly as
in the night of the 8th December mommy had very strange
cramps and pains in her belly. On the ultrasound on the
9th December it showed that I lay very nicely with my
head down as I should!
herewith two pictures of my room. Here you can see my
changing cushion, on top of it is a quilt mommy made
ages ago. On the shelves you can see all sorts of things
I already got from various people! Amongst other things
you will see little shoes from Kudu leather which my
daddy found in De Rust in South Africa, a gecko from
thread and beads which daddy and mommy bought in Camps
Bay, a koala from auntie Fiona in Australia, a wooden
doll from grandma and grandpa den Otter which they
bought in Moscow and a rattle from uncle Maarten and
auntie Helena also from Moscow where they live. And of
course a lot of cuddly animals! The nice doll with the
pink dress which is called Charlotte mommy got from
Santa during Christmas 2005.
you see my bed, ready made so I can come. In my bed
mommy already put two nice cuddle animals, a very cute
soft and colorful tiger which grandma and grandpa Krook
bought for me, grandma could not resist it she told
Grandma den Otter made my curtains and the canopy over
my bed, it was quite some work she told mommy, I am sure
to believe that!
