Big News & the reason i missed my first HM :)

So the reason i dropped out of the RomaOstia Half marathon was because……im PREGNANT!! πŸ˜€ Im now 14 weeks along so over 3 months and past the first trimester which is the the scary part. So even though i didnt get a HM medal im happy i missed it and theres always next year for a race. πŸ™‚

I found out i was pregnant a few days after doing the WerunRome 10km on 31st december and couldnt believe it as it ment i had been 4 weeks pregnant when doing the race lol! The doctor told me no bouncying or running during pregnancy so im sticking to her advice even though i know some ladies do still run when there pregnant.

Its funny as we talk to the Doctor/Gyno about getting pregnant again end of November and it looks like we concieved 3 days after talking to her! lol She found this funny and amusing when we told her. It seemed we just needed her to put our minds at rest about concieving again.

Me and Alex are over the moon and are so so happy! So far only a few close friends and a few family members have known as we wanted to wait until after the first 3 months so things were safer.

Its been a very nervous time with the first scan atΒ 8 weeks to see if there was a heartbeat i acutally cried when i saw it! Then we had a bit of a scare at 10 weeks and had an emergency scan but all was fine.

Today was the next scan and the baby had grown so much! Everything was there and looked perfect and the scan lady said she has the impression its a girl! Which is strange as Alex has been saying hes convinced its a girl from day 1 πŸ™‚ So the next scan in April will confirm the sex for sure.

So the last 2 months i havent been doing any exercise as i have been to tired and feeling sick alot but now im on the 2nd trimester i intend to get some walking done once a day and i have a prenatal workout video to do with light weights and some yoga which im looking forwards to!

I did keep a few blog posts about what i was going through the last 2 months and so will post them in a bit as i wanted to wait until now to do it πŸ™‚
