So much to say.....

Monday, June 14, 2010

Well it's been 2 weeks since I've had all of my fill taken out of my band AND I'VE LOST 4 KILOS! Go figure!!!!

So for those of you who know me over at facebook. I ask that you keep this news quite and don't mention it over there.

Yes we are officially preggers, up the duff, bun in the oven, etc etc etc.

We are totally over the moon. It's still early days and I have a dating scan on Thursday to get a due date. I'm pretty sure I'm 7 weeks tomorrow, but the scan will give us a better clue.

This is the whole reason I got the band. With PCOS I struggled to lose weight and keep it off. It has been nearly 1.5 years since I had the band done and I've managed to lose around 22kg and get my cycles back to regular.

My Dr was blown away as we didn't even need Chlomid or fertility assistance.

So we have told my family and a couple of close friends. We are telling the in-laws next week when we fly home to see them. I'm thinking about getting a cake made for when we go out for lunch with "We're Pregnant" on it. I can't wait to see their faces!!! Our families thought we would never have kids!!!!

So my Dr has taken all of my fill out and is happy to add some back in if I'm putting on too much weight later in the pregnancy. After the baby is born, it's up to me when I have it put back in. I've had a touch of morning sickness and am 'off' certain foods. I've also been craving fruit which is great.

Well I just wanted to touch base with you all and share the good news. We won't be telling the rest of the world until I'm past that 12 week mark.

Oh Bel, Congratulations. I am so happy for you. And bonus on the weight loss too.. But seriously, how exciting.. It seems like yesterday we were sitting and chatting waiting for our surgery, talking about our reasons.. Ans this was exactly your reason.. As the saying goes.. Good things come to those who wait.. it sucks that you had to wait so long, but now your dreams have come true..
Take care
