If you didn’t already know, I’m expecting another baby in March next year. This will make our family the perfectly even number of four! A new chapter in our lives.
I always love the initial questioning you get when you tell someone the news, the first of which always seems to be, was it planned? Followed closely behind by, we didn’t know you were trying! And, are you going to find out the sex? And finally what do you think your having? So to clear those up, yes it was planned (it shouldn’t matter if it wasn’t though, we are obviously having the baby if we are telling you and are both extremely excited!) and yes, we were trying and you didn’t know because I didn’t really want the world to know that we were bonking regularly in order to reach this outcome. No, we are not going to find out the sex, we loved the surprise with Phoebe and as Hubby says, “You don’t get many surprises in life these days”. And for the record, I think I’m having a boy.
The other question is usually, is it different this time around? I think most pregnancies are different, but yes, my two have been so far. With Phoebe I was extremely lucky to suffer NO morning sickness at all, I had a few weeks of extreme tiredness which seemed to pass quickly, I didn’t pop out until about 22 weeks either. I loved being pregnant with Phoebe, I was the healthiest I had ever been, my migraines amounted to two in the nine months I was pregnant and I felt amazing. Granted, I did have quite a few scares along the way with her, but I savored every minute because back then, we only thought we would ever have one child.
Now four years later, I am pregnant again! And we are so excited, Phoebe included (she is going to make a great big sister). I’m glad that I will too savor this pregnancy like my last, because this will be my last. This time around I have felt ill, all day sickness, but have never thrown up. The tiredness has stretched on and on, and despite what everyone says, it’s not because I have Phoebe around, she is wonderfully self sufficient and usually not too much hard work. My skin is terrible, I have never had so many pimples in my life. And at nearly fourteen weeks pregnant, I have a very obvious bump going on (not to mention the massive boobs!). But, as with Phoebe, I have already had a few scares, all of which have passed.
So, I have lots on my mind at the moment, we have lots to do and lots of preparation before the end of the year. My Blog will remain the same, but now just add in some baby stuff here and there, hope you don’t mind!?
