If you follow me on instagram you probably already know we are expecting a little girl. I got a bit excited and as my sister had already spilled the beans on her instagram I shared the news before I got around to blogging it.  I knew from the 12 week scan we were having a girl, baby was being super good and I got a clear view and maybe its my scientist brain but I knew exactly what I was looking at, hah! The technician wouldn't confirm as it was too early and she said she wasn't allowed to tell until the 18-20 week scan. I had also heard so many stories about little girls turning out to be little boys, eeek (not that I would of minded either way, I just wanted to know the baby was healthy). So I held out telling people until we got three more confirmations from two more scans and my obstetrician (again my scientist brain weighing up the probabilities of a mistake).

Now I've been going a little crazy with shopping, I can't help myself!! There are so many cute clothes around.  The little one has also gotten into a routine of movements, I went from waiting and wishing to feel something to feeling her everyday. It's so amazing to feel the little kicks and Glen got to feel them too this week.  I feel a lot of movement in the morning and again late at night but during the day more sporadic. My belly also feels so big, I can't even imagine how big it is going to get these coming months.  I've been going crazy with stretch mark creams though I'm not convinced they will make a difference, if you're going to get stretch marks you probably will regardless.  I also went back to exercise this past week, it came as a huge surprise to me how much I was missing pilates. Before the pregnancy I was going 2-3 times a week.  So I've gone back but to the beginners class and the prenatal yoga class. Just taking it easy as I've noticed how different my balance is now with this belly out front!

I've also found so many cute etsy stores for baby things, so I'll have to do some posts on that soon.
