I am starting this blog to help to motivate myself even more on this weight loss journey. I started just after Christmas 2009 and I know it will be a long journey but one I lknow will be worth it in the end. This has been a long time coming....

Spilling The Bean...

Hello my lovely bloggerinos. The time has come for me to be able to share my very very awesome secret with you. I know a few of you have guessed, and guessed correctly too! so without further a do, let me introduce you to little bean...

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...
