I've made it to 12 weeks!

I'm soooo happy at the moment!I had my 12 week scan today and here is our gorgeous little baby!

S/he was really good and was really still for all the important measurements - we had one little somersault and lots of little wiggles too :)
After the sad events at Christmas last year, it is such a relief to see that our baby is fine - all hands, feet etc that it should have a a tiny little heart fluttering on the screen!
They have put my due date at around the 28th December and I am just sooo excited now!
Little man has seen the picture and he has been gently patting my tummy and saying 'hello baby in there' which I thought was sooo adorable!!
The sickness that I've had seems to have gone now - so I am starting to 'enjoy' being pregnant - even though I am already really huge - so much so that lots of friends (leading up to my scan today) have been trying to persuade me that I have 2 / 3 up to 8 little babies, heehee!
I'll keep you posted of our progress :)

The lovely Jennifer over at Jennifer's Little World has tagged me in a 'why?' meme, so as I hardly ever get tagged in anything, I thought I'd have a go!

Here are the rules:

1. Post your whys – as few or as many as you like.

2. Link up your post here over at Mummy Central, and it would be great if you could leave a comment too.

3. Tag 5 bloggers to keep this going.

4. If you’re not a blogger, leave your whys as a comment below. I'd love to read them.

5. Show your support by reading a few others and commenting on them.
So here are my Why's:
  • Why is it always me that gets all the bugs / colds etc?
  • Why does little man have to come and sleep in my bed half way through the night, instead of staying in his own bed?
  • Why can I never stick to my 'goals' or new years resolutions?
  • Why do the 'normal' high street clothes shops never stock maternity clothes in bigger sizes than 20?
  • Why can't we have lovely sunny summers for a change?
  • Why couldn't little man miss the 'terrible 2's'?
  • Why can't hubby win the lottery and pay off all our debts?
Right I'm off to have a look at some other people's why lists :)

Wow! How long ago was I last here??

I have been thinking that my little blog has been rather neglected lately - but at least for the best excuse!
I am now 11 weeks pregnant and have really been suffering with nausea, sickness and my depression!

I got signed off from work for 2 weeks and am finally back to being 'me' :)
I managed my first shift back at work on Thursday and was utterly exhausted at the end! I'm just hoping that it will be better tomorrow - I might have to ask for some little breaks, as 5-6 hours waitressing without a break is hard going!

My first shocker of being pregnant today! I had to get measured for new bras as mine really hurt and as money is very tight I thought I'd get maternity ones now. The lady had to order my size in - I've got sooo much bigger :( oh well, hope it will all go away again once the baby arrives and I put in a lot of work, heehee!
I can't believe how huge I already feel - I've had to start wearing my mum's old nickers from when she was a lot bigger, as mine no longer fit :( oh dear oh dear!!

At least I have started to feel a lot more excited about the baby now :)
When my depression was really bad, I thought that this was a terrible thing to have done, as I was never going to be able to cope, etc etc!
I hope now that as I'm feeling better, I can see a much more positive future instead!
I'm still not 100% easy about everything, but once I have the scan on the 18th, I'm sure I will feel much better :)

Now, I need to go and have a little nap - I am sooo tired lately - but I'll take that over the sickness, no problem!! ;)
