So it happened…it wasn’t expected and I was very shocked but it happened. We are having another baby.
We are beyond excited and also really scared. We had our 12 week scan booked for the 8th June and I was so nervous after our miscarriage back in February. To our relief everything was fine and we are due in December – a little Christmas baby.
We were unsure at what point to tell the girls as December is a lifetime away to a 5 and 3 year old but we felt a little unfair telling other people without telling the most important people first. They were delighted, so happy – Meme went straight upstairs to find the old name book so we could choose (which let me tell you is going to be a tough one with those girls thinking they have first choice!). Each morning the girls come into our room and rub my tummy and each week we look online to see what size fruit the baby is. I love that they are already so involved. I feel so blessed to have such an amazing family.
I have already written a little post about my first trimester which I will publish soon. I know this will be my last pregnancy and I want to remember every single moment. I have also very few pregnancy photographs of me with the girls (I really hate having my picture taken) but I am going to make a little more effort to take some pictures to remember it all by.
So I am now 15 weeks and I am tired, hungry and already can’t fasten my jeans…but I’m happy.
Another baby….how lucky am I?
