My daughter Kate has just found out that she's pregnant! Now this is great, apart from the fact that she split up from "the pillock" at New Year cos he was shagging about with other people and she hasn't seen him since. This means that she's at least 16 weeks pregnant - we think - and the baby will be due in September. I don't think it's really sunk in with her yet.
She has to go to Sure Start on Monday morning to get sorted out with a midwife etc and with any luck they'll arrange a scan for her and we'll find out for definite how far on she is. She is already on the housing list but she'll probably have to fill in another form and hopefully she'll get something sooner than she would normally. Now we have to start stocking up on baby things, 5 months isn't long! And oh god...I'll have to KNIT! I hate knitting. I CAN knit, but I get bored with it and try to avoid it if possible.
Things are going to be tight for a while as none of us are working, and baby things are so expensive, but if we get something every couple of weeks she should be ok for starting out.
Now don't anyone dare call me Nana, cos I hate that name.
