Finding out I’m pregnant the second time round

First time round, I didn’t write or post lots about my pregnancy on here or on my social media and there were two main reasons for that really – 1. I didn’t think anyone except us would be interested and the whole insta-mum thing, wasn’t really a thing, and 2. I wasn’t sure how much I wanted to share, it was our experience, we didn’t know what was ahead of us and I didn’t want to post something I’d regret further down the line. But, as Flo got older, she started to photo-bomb my insta-stories and enjoyed being in front of the camera and I was more confident in myself as a mum and a person – so it felt more natural to share that with the world. I have also grown a network of friends in “real-life”, insta-life and through blogging and I realise we all support each other with our content and there are lots of people out there that are new parents or on their road to it and need support and find comfort in hearing others’ experiences and how it really is…

So what about finding out I’m pregnant for the second time?…Continue reading

The Dating Scan – Round Two

So I’ve told you about our first scan appointment, also known as the dating scan. We were very anxious at the scan, as I think most first-time parents probably are, but all went well and we were super happy.

However, we were only 11 weeks pregnant, when we thought we were closer to 12 and the midwife struggled to get the images she wanted to check all was normal, as the little thing kept wriggling around. So we were asked to come back nearly 2 weeks later and have another scan, just to be sure. Continue reading

First Trimester Morning Sickness

I hear that some ladies are lucky enough not to experience nausea during their pregnancy. However I’m sure that the majority (including me), do!

My personal experience was nausea from about Week 7 through to Week 12. And it certainly isn’t “morning sickness”, it’s “all day every day, hit you any time, anywhere sickness”. I had an almost constant feeling of wishy-washy nausea, but never actually threw up. I guess I was lucky, as I know a lot of women vomit a lot, causing dehydration and weight-loss. I however, just constantly felt off-colour, for about 80% of the time that I was awake, occasionally wretched here and there, but never vomited…Continue reading
