I'M HAVING A BABY!!!!!!

4 weeks at the museum in Edinbrugh, OK so I'm sticking it out but I really wanted my first pregnancy picture! lol 

We found out right before my birthday and our 1st year wedding anniversary and we couldn't be happier or more excited! I'm 8 and a half weeks pregnant now and I feel amazing, womans bodies are incredible, I'm actually growing a tiny human in my womb, its astounding when you think about it! 
It is hard work for your body though and mixed with all the hormones I have been feeling quite tired (no sickness at all though - happy days!). Luckily Al is just the perfect husband for a pregnant wife and has been making sure I rest lots (nearly every 2nd night I'll go to bed at 8pm and sleep right through!) while he cleans out the hens, does washing and cooks amazing healthy meals - have I mentioned how much I love this man?  
I'm also making sure I'm super healthy, we both detoxed for 4 months before 'conception' (lol) and I have been eating extra extra healthy and drinking lots of water as well as keeping up exercise and starting yoga again. Pregnancy and childbirth is the most strenuous thing your body can do so it makes sense to be in good shape for it!  
Well I wanted to share this wonderful news with you all because you've all been so kind and supportive towards us and also it's a bit of an explanation as to why my posts here and comments on your blogs have been few and far between this last month or so! I love blogging and am DEFINITELY keeping it up, it's just that recently sleep comes first lol 

8 week bump!

We love you so much already tiny grape size baby! xxx
I have never been happier :)
