Sorry for the long absence, I feel bad after promising to keep you all updated! Everything is wonderful here, I have just been so tired. I know it's really important to listen to your body and even more so when your pregnant. I've been getting home from work and feeling shattered so I've just been getting dinner and going straight to bed nearly every night. Doing that has meant that during the day I'm not totally exhausted, I think it's the right thing to do because I feel brilliant and am loving every minute, even all the sleepy ones :)
On tuesday we got to see where all my energy was going, heres our little baby!
Seeing our baby was just a totally incredible and magical experience. When the picture first came up I burst out laughing and of course the picture went all fuzzy but I couldn't help it I was just so overwhelmed that I could actually see our baby, the one growing inside me, so clearly.
Once I contained my giggles we saw a tiny hand stretch up, it looked like he/she was waving at us! Then it started leaping around, it was amazing, not just a twitch or a kick it was jumping and flexing all over the place, the midwife called another midwife over to come look because they don't normally see such energetic 12 week olds! So once we saw that it made perfect sense why I have no energy left for myself these days lol
It was lovely writing this little update and hopefully now that I'm into the second trimester I'll find the energy to write more often (and not just about being pregnant!) and read more blogs too - I feel strangely out of touch. Thanks for sticking around though :) xxx
