Keeping A Secret…

Can you keep a secret?

Pregnancy Announcement

We’re expecting baby number 2!  I had the dating scan last week and can now happily announce that I am 14 weeks pregnant!

As you’ve probably noticed, I haven’t been blogging very much lately.  This is wholly down to how absolutely rotten I’ve been feeling!  My morning sickness has been pretty heavy nausea, thankfully without the vomiting, but is still ongoing.  I am hoping to gain some respite from it soon but I’m not keeping my hopes up…  I suffer with low blood pressure in pregnancy too so that makes the whole nausea-thing worse, not to mention the light-headedness, dizzy spells and blackouts.  On the up-side, I’ve not gained much weight but have a rather prominent bump!

I’ve not got any really strong cravings or anything but I am rather enjoying nectarines, cheesy Wotsits and the new limited edition Banana, Mango & Papaya Mullerlights.  I’m absolutely hating meat at the moment, which is a right pain as we’re a family of meat-eaters!  Especially chicken, which was my main source of protein pre-pregnancy.  Hopefully this will ease as the morning sickness disappears – fingers crossed!

I’m also feeling pretty down about having all my lovely clothes in the wardrobes and not being able to wear them as they don’t fit…  My jeans are all high-waisted and won’t go anywhere near fastening and all my tops/dresses are fitted and now extremely uncomfortable.  Any tips on maternity fashion advice would be greatly appreciated!

O is so incredibly excited to become a big brother!  He says he has no preference on whether he gets a baby brother or baby sister and I believe him.  He’s grown up closely with his two girl cousins, who he sometimes calls his sisters, so I don’t doubt that he wouldn’t mind either way.  He’s been saying for a while that he wanted a baby for Christmas – well, now he’s getting one!  Albeit not until March…

I aim to update the blog with bump photos and pregnancy updates every now and again, hopefully being able to blog more in a couple of weeks time when I’m not feeling so exhausted!  Here’s one for starters at 14 weeks…  I took O blackberry picking at a local wood this morning and asked him to take a photo of Baby and I.  He loved it – and he didn’t do too bad of a job!  I think I will ask him to be my photographer for each of these photos going forward…

Pregnancy Bump 14 Weeks

  1. Congratulations, I hope you are feeling better soon. I was so sick during both my pregnancies, I had no energy, which isn’t great when you have another little one to look after! Aw great bump for 14 weeks! You will have to get O to take regular bump photos!
