12 weeks!


I'm 12 weeks tomorrow!! I've been waiting for the milestone for what feels like years. mainly because;
a. dating scan & the reassurance everything is ok, therefore risk of miscarriage going down massively. and
b. morning sickness being over!

however, because of going on holiday from this friday for a week, I haven't got my scan until the 6th of September, the day I become 14 weeks!! so frustrating. and the morning sickness and tiredness and all the other lovely trimester 1 symptoms show no sign of being over anytime soon. lovely!

BUT this week, the most exciting thing happened!! I have had my angel sounds fetal doppler for a few weeks now, but all we could hear was the placenta and faint sounds that we thought were the heartbeat. but a few days ago, we heard this:

I cried!! I was so happy. It was such a relief. The best sound ever.

And, as you can see from the first picture, I have a little bump! I haven't been able to fit in any of my normal jeans for a few weeks now, and have quite a few maternity clothes already. I feel like I'm huge, and it's so early still! I love my bump :)

our story





so, a little introduction...
my name is Rosie. Im engaged to a lovely and silly boy called David. David and I have known each other since we were 11, we met at school. I thought he was annoying, but he was very persistent, and wouldnt take no for an answer. We finally became a couple when we were 15, and have been in love ever since. We have gone through leaving school, getting our first jobs, and going to university together, graduating at the same time. We have a hamster and two pet rats, and lived together for 3 years. We've just moved back in with our parents after finishing uni as we have absolutely no money, but are going to be living with each other again as soon as possible! It was two weeks ago we graduated, and last weekend I turned 21. David is also 21. It was 2 days before our graduation, we found out the news. I am pregnant. It wasn't planned, it was a complete shock. We are having a baby!! Both of us have always wanted to be parents, and love children, we just didn't expect it to be quite so soon! But we feel so lucky and are so excited.
The day of my 21st birthday party, David was still at our old uni house, 2 hours and 30 minutes away, finishing moving out and doing the last few days of the job he has there. He called me to tell me he was running late because of things at work, and I was sure he wasn't going to make it to my party. That morning I was suffering from awful morning sickness, in my pyjamas, and looked like death. My family were out, and there was a knock on the door. I answered, and there he was, on one knee, with my great grandmothers diamond and emerald ring, and he asked me marry him. I cried and just hugged him. It was so lovely!! Before the pregnancy, he had been planning on taking me to Rome this summer to propose, but the baby needs that money now. And I liked the fact he proposed on my doorstep, while I was in pyjamas :)  
I am 8 weeks pregnant, feel very sick and tired all the time, and couldn't be happier right now!
David is my best friend. I love him more than I can explain, and we are going to have a baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!
