12 weeks

Today marks 12 weeks of my pregnancy...we had our 12 week scan today and to explain it in one word - AMAZING! To see our child, growing healthy, all limbs, strong heartbeat, moving around constantly was totally breathtaking.
I've been fairly healthy throughout my pregnancy, slight morning sickness around weeks 5-7, but since then just extreme tiredness. I'm usually a nanna when it comes to sleep - I love my sleep - but lately I can't make it much past 8pm without falling asleep. I've been eating well and gone off coca cola (actually can't stand the taste right now), fruit is my best friend right now, it gets me through my days, along with Salt and Vinegar chips. I've noticed slight changes in my belly, getting a little rounder, but not ready to show those pics yet as to me its just the same belly I had before, and I wasn't proud of showing that off. I'm so excited that 2011 will bring Dan and I a child. I know that life will change dramatically because of starting our little family, and as daunting as it does seem at times, right now I am totally amazed at what is going on inside my body, and just trying to enjoy this journey of motherhood.
Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother's womb. I thank you, High God—you're breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I'd even lived one day. Psalm 139: 13 - 16
