So many of you have been asking why my blogging has been non existent lately…
So….if you follow me on social media you will have seen exciting news……..I’m pregggnnanntt!!
Having a second baby is something we’ve…(when I say we I mean me! 😂)been thinking about for a little while, however I’m not sure either of us expected it to happen this soon!
I desperately wanted Joshua to have a sibling close in age but until now it just hasn’t felt right for us. If you’ve read about Joshua’s speech and language journey then you’ll understand. I wanted Joshua to be able communicate with us a little bit more before we brought more babies into the world!! I also wanted to give him as much attention as possible.
So, I found out very early! 4 weeks, anyone else that found out this early knows that waiting for your scan is the longest wait EVER!!!
My partner was in Thailand at the time, so Joshua and I waited for him to arrive home before delivering our surprise!!
It’s safe to say – he was shocked! 😂
First Trimester Diary! 4-5 weeks – so I peed on a stick and yes I’m pregnant. I really hope all that Prosecco and Camembert that I had last night will be ok!!! So today I’m 5 weeks and the tiredness of all tiredness has hit me like a tonne of bricks! In the mornings i’m ok, but by lunchtime I’m shattered! I remember this all too well from my first pregnancy! I am still working out several times a week and trying to stay healthy! (However this could all change in 2 weeks) My current weight is 61.4kg… I’m 5ft 7. I’m not at all going to be paranoid about my weight gain but I just thought it would be good to keep track of it and also that way I’m being open and honest with everyone about my weight gain! Last pregnancy I gained about 2 1/2 stone, so a good amount!!
6-8 weeks – this week I had my first bout of morning sickness. I didn’t have this at all with my first pregnancy😩 so I didn’t know what to expect. The worst thing is I haven’t told my boss at work, so I’m just having to soldier it and go to in. Between the yawning and heaving life is great. I’m currently on the train and desperately want to sit down but it’s way to early to wear a BOB badge! I really hope this doesn’t last the whole trimester, as I’m off to Sri Lanka in 2 weeks!! I haven’t been able to work out as much which kills me and the sickness only subsides if I’m eating. So basically I’m just going to get FAT!!!😩😩
Why they call it morning sickness I don’t know. It should be called all bloody day sickness. I’m still eating every 1 1/2-2 hours so I feel like a grazing cow.
7-8 weeks – still feel like crap….all bloody day. I’ve tried to go to the gym a few times but it just leaves me exhausted for the rest of the day. Everything makes me feel sick, so I just feel miserable all the time. I really am trying to remain positive. It’s either that or cry.
Joshua is being super cute, and kisses my belly and says baby! 😩
I look fat already, the everyday toast eating is catching up with me. I went to the doctors and they’ve given me Cyclizine, which the doctor has assured me are safe, for the nausea but they make me drowsy and uncontrollably thirsty!!! So it’s about finding the lesser of two evils!!
I’ve been to the gym once this week and I’ve lost so much muscle, I’m trying not to get to down about it….but I do miss the gym!
9-10 weeks – currently lying on the sofa at 7.38am with tea and crackers waiting to feel better so I can get ready for work. I am in deep depression as I have already gained 6lbs from my lack of exercise and constant eating. I literally left my house for 1 hr the entire weekend. It’s my birthday tomorrow but for the first time in my life I’m not feeling very Birthdayish 😩
We are off to Sri Lanka today on an early baby moon/birthday trip and luckily I haven’t felt too bad I’ve only heaved a couple times this morning! I’m dreading the flight, I have brought some anti sickness travel bands. Maybe they’ll help!! *note they didn’t*
The weather and hotel is beautiful, there’s not much to do but relax and eat! Luckily I’ve being doing plenty of both! The breakfast is to die for! They literally have everything you could want….
I’ve had a few days where I’ve felt sick but nothing major!!
The journey home was horrendous, I was sick about 4x, I’m so done with this first trimester bullshit! I’m 9 weeks now so hoping the next couple of weeks go fast! 😩
10-12 weeks – As my first trimester fell right around the festive period we decided to go for an early scan so that I wouldn’t have to have those awkward why are you not drinking convos around Christmas. We went to Womb with a view they are a lovely clinic based in Hatfield. We took Joshua with us and I was amazed at how cute he was. He pointed at the screen and said ‘hi baby’ literally tears ran down my cheeks!!! Baby is all healthy and I was actually further along than I had thought!
I’m finally starting to feel a bit better, just in time for Christmas!!! We had a lovely Christmas and Joshua was well and truly spoilt!
I haven’t been to the gym in forever but at the moment I don’t actually care! I’ll go when I’m feeling more energetic!
13 weeks….see ya first trimester!!!
Hopefully now I can start to enjoy my pregnancy.
Look out for my posts as I’ll be sharing throughout…..warts and all…
