Picture Taken At 26 Weeks Pregnant

We had our 20 week scan at the end of November. What a special experience that was! It was incredible getting to see all the detail in our little baby. We decided we wanted to find out the sex of our baby. We were convinced it was a girl and my husband has even been calling our baby a girl for the last few weeks. It was announced that we were having a boy when the testicles were spotted. We both looked at each other with suprise and said 'A Boy!'. At first we were shocked just because we had thought it was a girl. As it sunk it we couldn't stop smiling. I know for many people they want to wait to find out if it is a boy or girl and in many ways I wanted to. However in my experience finding out the sex helped me connect with our baby more. That day we could not stop smiling. We were both so excited, that we had to share the news with both our families! 

Enjoying My 2nd Trimester

I have been lucky enough to enjoy my 2nd trimester. My sickness went away after 16 weeks and my energy levels came back. I have been doing yoga every morning and making sure I do a 30-40 minute walk each day. I have been feeling fairly relaxed and started to really feel excited about becoming a Mum. As you will know from reading my other blogs we have been trying for a baby for over 4 years and we were just about to start IVF when we fell pregnant naturally. The waiting has made us appreciate this miracle baby inside me all the more!
