Thinking back, I did feel rather sympathetic for the ewes this year. I watched them struggle to deliver their lambs, and felt such a kinship to them.
Imagine our suprise to find out that we are expecting a "wee lamb" of our own! It appears that all of that estrogen in the barn this spring managed to get things moving in the ovaries department, and so in January of 2013 we will be new parents.
I am still in a state of denial. I went for the ultrasound and said to the technician "are you sure that's me?" I have been told that once I begin to feel the signs of life it will all feel much more real.
Until then I am suffering with horrible heartburn and indigestion. I suppose I should be thankful as I didn't have any nausea or morning sickness, in a way I got off easy.
If any other farm wives have advice for me on what to avoid, or things I need to think about in terms of the farm chores I welcome the advice!
