I’m sure if you have seen my social media and Youtube pages then you will have seen that we are expecting our second baby! Oliver is going to be a big brother in May 2018!
You may have noticed I’ve been a bit quiet on the blogging, vlogging and social media front recently. It’s because I have been struggling to keep this a secret (and my body hasn’t exactly tried either)! I thought that if I distanced myself I wouldn’t accidentally let it slip! Thankfully now I can tell you all and no longer hide my little bump.
This time round I have been a lot more anxious during the early weeks. When I was pregnant the first time around, I didn’t really think about the risks of miscarriage, but this time around it’s really played on my mind a lot more. Thankfully we are now past the high risk time and our baby was very happily kicking when we had our scan, so I am feeling much more relaxed now!
It’s definitely been a lot harder this time around with a toddler in tow. I remember when I was pregnant the first time around, I could sleep when I was tired. This time around, Ive been feeling even more tired and the only time I can nap is when/if Oliver naps! I was quite fortunate this time that I didn’t have any morning sickness. I had constant nausea in the early weeks, but I think this was partially due to two different bugs I came down with. And fortunately once I recovered from the bugs the nausea went away as well.
I am so excited to see how Oliver is as a big brother, we’re trying to teach him about the baby in mummy tummy now. Every time we talk about the baby, he wanders off and gets his doll and cuddles it. So at the moment it seems like he will be a very loving big brother! Time will only tell!
So hopefully over the next few weeks and months I will giving you some pregnancy updates and sharing our journey to becoming a family of 4!
