I know it's been a while since I've written, trust me there hasn't been anything too exciting to post about unless you wanna hear about my day at work LOL!
But seriously here's what I've been up to the last month besides work via pic's...
|An awesome 1920's themed party Andrei and I went to for a friend who left for Australia|
|Winter has finally hit N.Z so it seemed plausible to make some homemade chicken soup! *recipe to follow|
|Watched the latest Iron Man movie in 3D! Was worth the money, had great laughs and awesome action plus delivered an a great story line as always :-)|
|Details on a new top I purchased from this cool hidden store in the city called 'Smoove As Fuck'. I kid you not that's the name!|
|My lovely new pair of winter boots to wear at work! They're so comfy I feel like there isn't even a heel!|
|I've lost weight! Around this time last year I was 70kg, so I've lost 10 in total! I'm now as it shows above (132lbs) and couldn't be happier, I trained friggin hard for it!|
Although...I feel I'm forgetting something.....
Oh that's right!
Just two weeks ago I found out that I'm PREGNANT!
I can hardly believe it, it's still so surreal and definitely explains alot of how I've been feeling lately!
I'm very excited and it totally took Andrei and I by surprise, we both thought we'd never have kids just cause of the fact we were so used to it just being us but we're over the moon!
Here are a few snippets of what's been happening since we found out :-)
|My first test I took was positive so I didn't feel the need to freak out and take another one. Whenever I've had 'scares' this has never happened!|
|First scan which was done last week was amazing! Baby already has a little heart beat :-)|
|close up of my little jelly bean *that will be his/her name until we know the sex|
|I was heading out to the gym this morning and thought it'll be good to document the changes with my body. As you can see there isn't anything yet but obviously there will be!|
How far along? 6.5 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: I've lost 1kg.
Maternity clothes? None at the moment. I will be needing to by some new jeans though as the ones I have are too loose.
Stretch marks? None. I'm making sure after every shower I moisterise my body with body butters that I have from The Body Shop. Once I run out then I'll be using Bio Oil.
Symptoms: Tiredness, tiredness and more tiredness! I slept for 15hours last night and it still doesn't feel enough! I get light headed and dizzy easily too and I get very light to no morning sickness. It comes and goes every 2days.
Sleep: Like I mentioned above, I don't feel comfy sleeping on my belly anymore.
Best moment this week: Getting to sleep in!
Have you told family and friends: Yes!
Miss Anything? Having energy and being less tired. I've read it subsides after the first trimester. I pray to god it does!
Movement: No movement yet but I do feel the little one tense up when I stress or do little flips when I'm happy which is cute!
Food cravings: Nothing out of the norm. I'm not eating like I used to I.E. junk food as it makes me feel quite sick now so I'm eating incredibly healthy and watching and reading about what is and what isn't good to eat while I'm pregnant.
Have you started to show yet: Nothing yet as per the photo above. I tend to have a little bump later in the day/evening though.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! And I have a lovely glow already which has attracted A LOT of attention which is nice :-) I do however get grumpy when I'm hungry and it was never an issue before.
Exercising? Yes. I'm making sure I go at least 3days a week, 45mins to an hour each time. I've cut back on a lot of things I used to do and I've stopped working on my tummy focusing more on my chest, arms, legs, bum and posture.
Baby is a: Have no idea yet! But I feel like it's a boy...
Belly Button in or out? In.
Looking forward to: Looking for a midwife, birthing hospital, my 12week scan and organising my baby shower and maternity shots!
So that's me for now, I feel so blessed and lucky in this moment.
All our friends and family have given nothing but great feedback and Andrei's going to make a fantastic daddy :-)
I'll keep you posted on more later, hope you enjoyed my latest!
