So after lying low on social media and on here for quite a while, I am delighted to reveal that I am expecting baby number 3! The scan was a couple of days ago, and I was so over the moon to see a wriggling, moving, waving little babba in there.
This is a rainbow baby for us, after two miscarriages last year which laid me low for quite some time. So as you can imagine the weeks before the scan were filled with anxiety and worry – they felt like the longest few weeks in the world! And the relief at seeing what should be on the screen, actually on there is really hard to describe.
Currently I continue to feel rough, luckily no actual sickness but plenty of nausea and dizziness, lovely!! My main symptom however, is fatigue – proper, all consuming, haven’t got a chance of fighting it fatigue. Bedtimes have been ridiculously early and if I even sit down to read the boys a story in the afternoon I just can’t stay awake, whatever I try. This was just how I felt when pregnant with the boys and I can’t remember when it passed, I’m hoping its soon!
This fatigue has also meant the blog has taken a back seat for a couple of months, as my evenings have been non-existent. This has been frustrating at times but acceptance is key – this won’t last forever and I’m just so very happy to be in this position after the last year that I’m just going with it.
So there we are! Thirteen weeks pregnant and delighted. Expect a pregnancy element to the blog as I (hopefully) continue along this path – I reckon this will be our last baby so documenting the journey will be fabulous.
