May 2nd 2020.
So, I have some great news to share with you all amongst all this anxious time! That’s right, baby no 2 is due this October!!
This baby was planned, as was Ffion and we’re so happy. But at the same time I’m terrified all over again!! I’m always scared of the unknown and like to know exactly what is going on, when it’s going to happen and how it’s going to pan out but we all know that parenthood doesn’t allow that. I’ve been having a rough ride this time compared to Ffion and the exhaustion has been horrific at times! I’m not entirely sure if that’s down to already having a toddler to look after this time and also the added stress of this Coronavirus and being classed as high risk but it’s a very different experience with this pregnancy, that’s for sure.
I have had my 12 week scan and baby is doing just great! I’m due my 16 week appointment in a few days and normally this would be the time where you get to hear your baby’s heartbeat for the first time, but due to the lock down I won’t have that reassurance this time round as the appointment is over the phone… So it’s another 4 weeks before I get to see my little bean again. I really do hope this social distancing/lock down/nightmare is over by the time October comes… I want to share this experience with my partner, friends and family. Main thing is that we are all healthy, safe and trying to enjoy this rare opportunity to spend quality family time together!!
I’ve finally decided to bite the bullet and get this website live (*internally screams at the thought*) so if you have got this far, thank you!! I’m sure there will be lots of blogs about this pregnancy and lock down experience and if you are going through something similar I’d love to hear from you!! Lets get through this together xx
