Henrik and I have jokingly been calling the bump Archie. This is the only name that Lachlan can say, something to do with a certain kilted character who lives in a pink castle and if we had another boy it would certainly make things easy 🙂

It was our first midwife appointment today and amongst all the admin and getting poked with needles we got to listen to the heartbeat, which was just lovely. We nearly didn’t get to hear anything though as ‘Archie’ was hiding but after getting a ‘blip’ the midwife made it her mission to chase him around until she caught him and then we got a very clear performance.  Second time around they leave you to it, so I don’t have another appointment until 28weeks (16 just now) but we have our scan in a month so we can see how much he’s grown since the first one. I keep saying/typing he but its very hard to envisage the possibility of a pink one when we only know about the blue variety 🙂

Lachlan has come home from nursery with a rash and all I can think is chickenpox as its doing the rounds at the moment…eeekkk! Its making me itchy just thinking about it…
