Fab Friday & A Beautiful Beating Heart.

My blogging break over Christmas felt good. Although I wanted to post photos and write about the day on Tuesday, I'm glad that I left the computer alone. It felt good to focus on family and the special moments that this holiday brought. Now though, I'm ready to jump back in with both feet, starting with Laura's Fab Friday!

I think it would be pretty hard to not be able to find any Fab moments from this week. A week that is all about celebrating, families, and togetherness.

Although James had a bad cold which reared it's ugly head on Christmas Eve and I was suffering from morning sickness, whilst also in the back of my head I kept thinking about my ultrasound that was happening today, we managed to forget all of that and have a fabulous Christmas.

We had guests which arrived on Christmas Eve. All the kids, including James, wanted to sleep on the Living room floor. It was fine until I had to try and put all the presents under the tree without waking 4 children that were about 2 feet from me.. I was then up until 3.30am cooking.. I do not advise that for pregnant ladies, especially those in the first trimester but it was worth it when James woke up, looked at the tree, then looked at me and said "Mummy! Santa came!"

The whole day was basically filled with presents, trying to locate batteries, finding enough space in the rubbish for what seemed like a million cardboard boxes and meters upon meters of wrapping paper. Kids smiling, smells from the kitchen, laughter, jokes, noise, guests, food, and a million memories.

And then today. It had been in the back of my head since I was at the hospital on Sunday with stomach cramps. How was Peanut doing? I tried to not let it ruin my Christmas but with my previous history it's not something I can take for granted.

We left early this morning, partly because we wanted to make sure we didn't hit any traffic but also because I was so nervous that sitting around the house was making me worse..

I got called in for my scan on time.. By this point my nerves were about to get the better of me. I laid on the bed and about 5 seconds later, there on the screen was a beautiful heart beating away! (and located in the correct place! Yay no eptopic pregnancy!)

I couldn't stop smiling. The relief I felt was indescribable.

James still has his cold. I am still suffering from morning sickness, my house looks like Christmas exploded in it and I'm sure not I'll ever be able to get it clean again but this has been one FAB week!
