I have pulled my top tight to show you what lies beneath...
I was a bit put out the other day when a random bloke at work came right out and asked if I was pregnant or had just started piling back on the weight that I had lost! It was a good job he caught me in a good mood, that's all I can say.
Love to you all,

I am now just over 12 weeks gone and am feeling on top of the world. The yuckyness is now passing and I almost managed to cook a meal on Sunday without gagging too much! Little bean was asleep all through the scan, even with all the prodding and poking that was going on. So the only picture we could get was of bean asleep on its side with back and bum facing towards us!
As you may already know, this is a massive thing for Mr B and I as I was told that I would not be able to get pregnant without any help such as IVF as only one of my ovaries was definitely functioning as it should be.
I had started WW to kind of get a head start if we did eventually need fertility treatment in a few years time. I though I'd lose weight, have a few years of being a skinny minnie and Mr B and I enjoying our selves. But it seems that mother nature had other ideas for us!
This may be too much info for some of you so I do apologise now. I had never ever been regular with my periods at all, until I'd started losing weight. I had hoped that it might help them and it did thank fully! It was Mr B that spotted that we hadn't had a "visitor" for a while at the beginning of January, but we thought nothing of it as I just thought it could be a bit of stress from work etc plus I was on the pill so we'd pretty much ruled out pregnancy all together.
When the "visitor" still hadn't shown up a few weeks later, we decided between us to do a test to rule it out before I went to the doctors to see what was going on. One of the symptoms of the condition I have, is that if you're one of the few girls to have periods, you will have an early menopause. So you can imagine that I was panicking that my baby making days were over before they had even begun!
So I peed on the stick of doom, and I swear the positive line showed up straight away! It was a good job I was still sat down other wise Mr B would have had to bring me round!
Mr B is even more pleased than me bless him, but we are both still stunned and shocked and cannot believe it's real! I had worked my self up into such a state that they weren't going to find any baby let alone a heart beat yesterday that it didn't register with me at all when they span the screen round to show us!
So there you have it my lovelies, the truth in full! That feels great to get off my chest I can tell you!
I don't want this blog to turn into a baby blog by any means, I really don't want to be a baby bore! I am still going to the gym, it is however a lot less frequent at the minute though. Plus I am going to take up some sort of yoga/pilates jobby to make me super supple so I can cough and then the baby will just magically appear all clean and wrapped in a fluffy blanket...

I would like someone to answer me this though..... How did we get from Christmas to March in such a sort space of time???? What on earth has gone on??? I'm sure some one has stolen some weeks away from me!
I'm in a very good mood today, I think it's mainly due to the fact that the sun is shining up here in South Yorkshire and there's a general feeling of everyone being in a good mood in the office for a change! All this makes for a smiley Lex! The fact that my friend is off to the farm shop to bring me a yummy ham salad is also adding to the air of giddyness.
Weight Watchers is lagging I'm afraid, so far so good though as I have been maintaining pretty well even though I haven't really been eating nice healthy home cooked meals! Severe brain mush does not aid reading recipes I can tell you! My severe aversion to certain smells is also not making it easy for me to even enter the fridge.
So, not much has been happening here in sunny Barnsley. We have had a few lovely days out to the coast and to York with some nice long walks here there and every where.
I've so many blogs to catch up on, so if I comment on an older post please don't think I'm going mad! Hope everyone is ok, love to you all.
