Getting My Energy Back!

Jacket/LoveClothing, Pants/Primark, Top/H&M, Boots/ASOS, Scarf/Accessorize

I am 9 weeks 1/2 today!  I just got back from my doctor's appointment and got the bloodwork back (everything's fine).  He said that I was about 9 1/2 weeks which is further along than we had estimated.  I should have been 9 weeks today, but never really tracked my last period correctly so we were doing our best at guessing.  We will know for sure when I get my first ultrasound next month...exciting!  

This is what I wore two weeks in a row to the doctor's office actually, but last week I accidentally deleted the pictures off my laptop -- argh!  I love this jacket because it's so cosy and warm.  The sheepskin inside makes it so snug and I went with brown rather than black just for some variety as I already have SO much black in my wardrobe!  The jacket is by Vila from LoveClothing and available for £45 here.  (For reference, I got this in the UK size 6/8 and it fits true-to-size.)

I'm also happy to report that my morning sickness is slowly dying down, my skin's clearing up and I am getting some of my energy back.  Yay!  I really want to keep active for my pregnancy so I had wanted to start walking in the mornings, five days a week for at least 30 minutes.  I asked my hubby if he would do it with me and he was totally supportive, plus we knew the pups would benefit too.  Last week I was way too sick to even get in a 5 minute walk so we started today and I feel great!  My doctor's appointment was this morning so we got up early and whipped on some workout gear & left.  It was raining a little bit and kind of gross out so we did some hardcore power-walking (so we'd finish quicker, lol) and did exactly 30 minutes.  I think Albi and Sina were very happy doggies because they were brought on a "proper" off-the-lead walk and they got to run around and play...now they are much more relaxed for the rest of the day.  As a result of this I feel 10 times better already...I hope to keep it up for as long as I can, I think it will be great for both of us to get fit for when the baby comes :)

Hope you're all having a great Monday!  If you like you can watch my 9 week pregnancy vlog here and don't forget to check out today's daily vlog here! :)
