16 weeks!

we have reached 16 weeks!! yay!!! and bump is definately growing. I got my first comment from a stranger last week too! a woman in town came up to me and tell me how lovely I look, and how I look like I'm having a very radiant pregnancy, which put a big smile on my face :) 

my 16 weeks check went really well, everythings good, and babys heartbeat was lovely and strong. I've been feeling rough since then though, I got some sickness again as well as a nasty cold, and got very dehydrated and fainted. Luckily, everythings fine, went to the GP and got to hear the babys heartbeat again which was lovely and reassuring. I am now on anti nausea tablets which are helping, but have made me so sleepy! I feel drunk! Babys giving me lots of little flutters and popping sensations now too :)

Today has been a good day though, despite still being groggy. My finished wedding dress arrived! It is perfect, Im so happy with it! and I got a call from the Body Shop, and I got the job I applied for!!!! I finally have a job, and they dont mind about the pregnancy, which is brilliant! Its not exactly using my degree, but its better than nothing at the moment :)

How are you all doing? x

I think I felt the baby move!! I'm 15 weeks, and a few nights ago, I got a feeling, like popping candy in my tummy. I've got it a couple of times since, and i think its the baby!!!!! I'm so excited :)

I have been rubbish at taking bump pictures. one will be coming in the next few days!

until then, here are some lovely bits and pieces I must have for my bump & the baby:

13 week scan!

My dating scan was yesterday. I was so nervous and scared!! I was having nightmares for days before about everything going wrong, and it being bad news. I had read so many horror stories (I know i shouldn't) about bad scans, and read about not bad scans but how they can be tricky. I read a story about one woman who went and they couldnt find the baby, so they got her to go for a walk for an hour and come back. I knew that would terrify me if that happened. So I was preparing for the worst.

My heart was beating so fast when we went in there, but as soon as the little ultrasound thingy was on my tummy, there it was on the screen, our little baby!!! I have never felt so happy. I knew immediately everything was ok, our little one is so energetic and playful! It was jumping about all over the place, kicking its little legs and waving its arms. We saw it sucking it's thumb, and even saw it drinking the amniotic fluid! It was opening its little mouth and swallowing!! I couldn't believe how much detail we could see, we could even see its tiny toes wriggling. It was so so amazing!! I just melted. I think David did too :) Heres our beautiful, lovely little baby:

In the picture, it is sucking its thumb, and the other arm is down by its side, and you can see its little toes curled round too! I can't stop smiling. The lay showed us it real size too on the screen, I couldn't believe how big it was! It doesn't feel that long ago I was reading it was the size of a poppy seed. It is now the size of a banana! I can't wait for our next scan now :)

I am 13 weeks, and feeling so much better. in The past week, I have only been sick a couple of times. And Im not feeling sick constantly, and my tiredness is easing too. I would really like a pregnancy glow now though, I look a wreck! my skin and hair are greasier than usual, and I have big dark circles under my eyes. I will post a new picture of my bump soon too, it's growing! I've noticed people staring at my belly when Im out and about now., probably wondering whether Im pregnant or been eating too much! :)

Hope your all well

p.s: our due date is the 10th March :)
