Shh! Don't tell anyone!

My partner would go mad if I said anything, but seeing as I have never physically met anyone that follows me/my friends & family don't know about the blog I don't see what harm it can do...

From the title alone I expect some of you may have already guessed, I found out last night I am expecting another baby! Eek! I think I knew last week, but thought I'd wait a week just encase. We could have timed it a bit better...think I will be due around Christmas, we were planning on having a spring baby, then again we weren't expecting to get pregnant first time of trying (think my partner is secretly quite gutted about that part)!! But with all 3 of our birthday's all being within 2 weeks of each other at the end of Nov start of Dec it's already hectic and expensive!

Even though I knew before the test, I couldn't stop shaking and my heart was pounding, I am happy about it though, and excited, I just really, really hate being pregnant! Obviously it's very early days, so I don't want to get too carried away but obviously that is easier said than done.

The last couple of days I have felt ridiculously tired, especially today. With an active toddler running about and the rain pounding down it isn't easy, so I am really hoping this time around I don't get the sickness I had when pregnant with him. I have already felt dizzy, even two weeks ago at work I felt off balance/dizzy a couple of times which is really early to have been feeling like that. This last month I have not stopped eating, so I am quite happy that I have a reason now, as I was getting a bit worried that, that was my new eating habit, I already look bloated because of it though. Don't think I will be as lucky as last time around when I got away with wearing my size 8's until about 5 months! I mean I barely fit into my size 8's 2 and a bit years after having Alex anyway!!

So anyway I'd better get the ball rolling and book a doctors appointment soon. I think it might feel more real then, as I am still in the doubtful 'it's not really happening, dreamy stage'.

I'd also better think up excuses why I don't want to play Centre at netball training, or want to work too hard, think my Mum may guess before we plan on telling them as she is my team captain (no fake excuses as she is too good at getting to the point if she thinks it's not true), quite impressed I managed the whole match as centre on Saturday though, and glad it was the last of the season!

So lock up your mouths and throw away the key until I say more! I just had to tell someone!!

And if you have any tips of entertaining an energetic 2 year old boy whilst feeling super washed out please don't hesitate in telling me them!



  1. Congratulations!! Its so exciting! x

  2. Congratulations. I'm afraid my only advice for coping with morning sickness and a toddler is CBeebies. I just had about enough energy (and time between trips to the bathroom) to turn on the TV. I hate parenting with the TV, but it was all I could do in the early stages of my 2nd pregnancy. Just give him quality time when you can

  3. Congratulations! I'm 22wks pregnant with my 2nd and have an energetic 2 year old boy, unfortunately I don't really have any particularly helpful advice for you I'm afraid except maybe bribery with chocolate and tv :) I did try a 'lets play sleeping' game the other day but he didn't fall for it!

  4. Thanks everyone for the kind comments and tips! Haha that sleeping game sounds like fun if it actually worked!

  5. Yay! Fab news! Have a happy and healthy 9 months - well, 8 now?!

  6. congratulations! very exciting! becca

  7. Congratulations! Hope the next 8 months go well x

  8. Thats lovely news! Congratulations x

  9. Congratulations! I hope that you have a happy and healthy pregnancy.

    It is hard being pregnant with a toddler, although I think you keep going because you have to! I did quite often go to bed when my toddler did. Try and get some extra sleep at the weekend, or whenever you can get someone to watch the big one.

    1. Thank you, been suffering with feeling ill the last few days but think I am making it worse by thinking about it all too much! I do wish Alex had a sleep still in the afternoon!


Thanks for taking the time to comment :)
