Say hello to Peanut!

I had my first scan yesterday and it was amazing. It is hard to put into words how you feel, seeing the tiny little alien on the screen for the first time. There was a huge sense of relief that I wasn't imaging the whole thing, followed by the biggest smile on my face that is still there today. I have never experienced a feeling like it and I don't think it's something I will forget in a hurry. The little lodger is all healthy and happy according to the doctors and we were correct with our thoughts of how far along I was.

 Here is the little jellybean that is currently living in my belly.

The sickness is starting to fade now thankfully. Still have off days but it's nowhere near as bad as before.

Cravings wise it's mainly fresh healthy stuff now I can keep food down. I guess that's a good thing though, eating lots of fruit and veg can't harm can it?
We brought a blender yesterday too so I shall be making lots of smoothies and soups and other blended loveliness.

Hormones are driving me crazy though. I sobbed my eyes out watching Wreck it Ralph and at various TV adverts. The dreams are horribly vivid too. Last night I dreamt I got a call saying my blood test had come back and I had too high testosterone levels so I was referred to the spider clinic. I got there and the nurses were giant tarantulas who took blood with their fangs. It was terrifying!
