We have a surprise!

 


As some of you might of seen already from Instagram Surprise! So we are expecting are 2nd baby in November and this will complete our little family. We have just had our 12 week scan so thought I would share our exciting news.





This was planned because we just knew it was the right time to have another baby and Heidi was around the right age. I'll take you back to around 6 weeks ago when we found out. Before I had my missed period I just had a feeling that I was pregnant. I took an early pregnancy test a couple of days before and it came back negative which I was surprised about but just thought maybe it's not strong enough yet to show up. A few days after my missed period I took another test and still negative. I just ended up thinking maybe I'm just a bit stressed out - I had been doing a new job in work and things were getting a bit stressed, and my period would arrive in a few days. After a week I took another test to see what was going on and to my surprise it came back positive. I was so happy I ran down the stairs to tell Keith and we both had the biggest smiles ever.

 
Up to 12 weeks I will let you know how I have been feeling, I have had the usual tiredness, breathlessness and sickness - but this sickness is 100 times worse than when I was pregnant with Heidi. I have said to Keith I definitely think I am having a boy because its so different to Heidi's pregnancy. I haven't had any mood swings which Keith is happy about and I suppose the only other thing I have had is constantly feeling hungry - nothing satisfies my hungriness! But I am actually craving more savory foods than sweet which is also making me sway to a boy because all I wanted with Heidi was fruit and sweet foods. I definitely want to do a separate post on gender predictions and would love you to have a guess on what you think from our scan.


Heidi doesn't fully understand right now and every time I mention it she says "no brother or sister" which is a bit worrying because in 6 months time she will either one here. I am just going to try and keep her included as much as I can and try and explain how she can be mummy's helper etc and by then she will be 3 and she will hopefully understand a bit better.

If you have any tips on how to ease your child in to accepting a new brother or sister I would love to hear them?

If you want to see any specific baby related blog posts then please let me know and I will do my best to do them for you.

I am so happy I get to share my new journey with you and hope you enjoy following x

  3. Lovely news, congratulations! Getting her involved in choosing things for the baby might help as well as a few big sister outfits for her maybe? My son loved picking clothes for the new baby and used to like telling her stories through my tummy once I got bigger.

  4. Ahhh exciting! Ahem, i may have already known that, lol. I'm totally finding out the gender of mine as I'm too impatient but i feel like I've had a different one from R so am pondering girl... I was more sick this time but think it's linked with tiredness and I for sure am not getting the same sleep I did with a toddler around!
    Keep well xxx. ‪Thank you for linking up to the #familyfunlinky‬

  5. Yaaay, congratulations (again) such lovely news. I felt so different with both my pregnancies and one was a girl and one was a boy so I certainly think there is something in it. Heidi will be ok, I don't really have any tips as Zara was way to young to understand but I am sure she will love cuddles when the baby arrives. I hope the sickness starts to subside of you soon. Thanks for joining us at #familyfun
