Some news, and the reason my little blog has been suffering a little bit

Ok so I know the blog has been suffering, I haven’t been on my game since November, but now I will let you into the secret as to why. You see I have been suffering from some major….morning sickness.

Yep in November me and Richard found out I was pregnant and to be honest it still hasn’t sunk in. Especially after being told that I would need medication because of PCOS, so shocked doesn’t cut it, but it was a nice surprise.

Now I won’t go into the my gruesome details of my pregnancy today, I’ll leave that treat for another day, but as a quick note…it’s hard..I have such a new found of respect for all women out there…and especially to my mum and Richards mum who have done it four times at this point in time, the kid is going to be an only child. That’s my 12 week scan above..

So right now I am 21 weeks and 5 days. I’ve kept it quiet for many reasons, It’s taken me a while to get my head around it, I didn’t want to jinx it…( I still refuse to buy anything yet) and there were a few people I was waiting to tell first..I feel super weird even typing this, like I said, it’s still hasn’t really sunken in, I’ll probably still be pretty surprised even after the baby is born.

This is my scan from Tuesday..it’s zoomed in…I’m not growing a baby with a giant head…( I checked…). We decided not to find out the sex, Richard insists it’s better as a surprise…I’m not so convinced but he won the war.

I leave you with a pic of me and Abby (i’m 20 weeks here) and yes we totally look like life partners posing outside Buckingham Palace..but hey who cares? I’m wearing quite a loose dress here…but I like to think I look kind of pregnant…haha. As some advice I’ve actually found wearing slightly more fitted clothes, look more flattering strangely enough, as the bump is more prominent. I’ll take some pics at some point once my head is out of the toilet. Anyway, here’s to some exciting months ahead.
