Now that's absolutely a BUMP!


So after looking at my belly for weeks wondering whether there was really a bump, I hit the 18 week marks and BAM! There it was! No doubt about it! I went from not a lot to bloody huge!!

Two weeks until my 20 week scan!!

Facebook Announcement

So this is where I stopped writing in my pregnancy diary so I am doing it all from memory. Reading/copying out my posts up until now has been pretty cringe-worthy but I do remember things slightly different then I wrote, so from now on will be interesting, and hopefully not too embarrassing! So here goes...


Although most people knew I was pregnant, we hadn't done an official announcement as such. I decided to do this whilst we were on holiday in Crete. The reason for this being that the 10th July was exactly a year since I ran my half marathon. That was a major achievement for me and I thought that after how rubbish the year had felt between these times, that it was a good time for me to share some good news.

At the time I felt like I was showing a lot but looking back at the photo I don't actually think I was! That could just be a post dinner belly! Up to this point I still had't got back into swimming but I definitely did my fair share on this holiday. This was probably the first proper week were I actually felt better for more than just a day or so. Though having said that there was one particular day which was so so hot that I nearly fainted in the middle of a Crete town, not my best look. We found this lovely frozen yoghurt place which was owned by an English woman and her yoghurt made me feel like a new person again! After this, we tended to go out in the morning before it got too hot and then spend the afternoon relaxing by the pool, reading and swimming. One evening after dinner we were sat on the patio overlooking the pool and I could have sworn I felt my first kick! I can't be 100% sure as it was the one and only one I felt for weeks after this but I really think it was. Scott had his hand on my belly at the time and he thought he felt something too!!
