we're having a baby hollygoeslightly

If you follow me on instagram then you may have seen a pretty major and exciting announcement I made last night…! Yes, we’re having a baby! In fact, I’m nearly 16 weeks along already, but we decided to wait until we’d told all the various VIPs in person before we declared it to the world…

So how am I feeling…?

We’re Having a Baby

Well first and foremost, we’re both feeling very happy and incredibly lucky! We conceived pretty much right away again and the 12-week scan all looks “normal” so, so far, so good. I’m a bit of a worrier and I don’t like to get ahead of myself, so find it hard to truly relax into it until that first scan is done. So it’s nice to finally be able to relax and enjoy the pregnancy and enjoy our friends and family knowing too.

I’ve written a separate blog-post on finding out I’m pregnant the second time round and how the first trimester went – that’ll be going live on Friday, so keep your eyes peeled.

I just wanted to come on here and share our pregnancy announcement as some of you will have followed me first-time round and some won’t have. Some will be parents yourselves now and some might just be thinking about it…

Thanks to Blanka Biernat for this wonderful illustration to help our announcement!

What’s to come?

I’ll certainly be posting a little bit more this time round, here on the blog, on my youtube channel and on my social accounts – as I’m comfortable with what I’m happy to share and I’ll be keeping it “lifestyle” based as much as possible. I’ll also be talking about being pregnant with a toddler and also balancing pregnancy, motherhood and running my own business! So far it’s not been easy, but it’s been so worth it!

So if you’d like to see these posts, make sure you sign-up to my newsletter, as I’ll be kick-starting those once a month or so and it’ll be a great round-up of my content and what I’m up to. I’ll also be posting about the pregnancy and motherhood bits mainly on a Friday as part ofย #mummyfriday

If you’re not interested in these sorts of post, have no fear! I’m not planning on a mummy-blogging take-over! There’ll still be the usual foodie posts, travel and plenty of interiors as we now have slightly more pressure to get the house finished! So do stick with me ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you got a young baby and a toddler?

If you do, please please please share your knowledge and tips! I want to get myself prepared…mentally and physically! lol Although I’m hoping that with a toddler that still doesn’t sleep through the night, chances are the next one will sleep like a log…right?!?!?!

So that’s it! We’re having a baby! Here’s to the next 6 months or so!
