It happened again. I disappeared. But this time the reason is a positive one.
As many of you know I am a stay at home mother to an
utterly attitude filled adorable 21 month old daughter, often referred to here as B. All that is about to change as once April 2017 rolls around – we will be a family of four (five including our fluffy black and white cat). I’m pregnant!
I’m about 12 weeks along now, and due to have my first ultrasound next week (which I feel super nervous about as my last pregnancy I had a scan at 11 weeks so waiting a bit longer this time fills me with anxiety!). I’ve known since I was about 6 weeks, but sickness got me good this time around. Honestly for all you women who experience sickness throughout your full pregnancy, I really do applaud you. Especially if you already have children/jobs/homes to run. I didn’t know how much it could effect you. I just didn’t have the energy to even lift my head up or focus some days, let alone blog. Looking at my phone made me feel sick, it was like motion sickness but I was completely off food too. Unfortunately I lost weight during this time, but I read this is common. But sickness has now passed and my appetite is slowly returning, so why not dive right back in where I left off.
I don’t remember much about my first pregnancy so I can’t compare, luckily I wrote in a baby book so I’m definitely going to dig it out and see what’s the same and what’s different. To be honest I don’t think it has even sunk it properly yet. Did anyone else feel this way with there second? I mean on B I’m pretty sure I already had a snowsuit, a box of nappies and a few other baby items purchased at this point (I know, super eager).
It’s just a short and sweet post today. Keep a look out for my upcoming pregnancy posts as well as my usual posts. And thanks for bearing with me.
How were your first trimesters during pregnancy? Were they different from your first pregnancy?
