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.

Second and Third Trimester Antenatal Appointments

I remember when I was pregnant, there didn’t feel like there were many mummy blogs out there that offered insight to how the whole process worked, including the antenatal appointments. So I’ve been reflecting back on my pregnancy and have already shared my initial appointments and scans which usually takes you up to about week 20 of your pregnancy. But thought I’d share details of the rest of the antenatal appointments we had at weeks 25 and then into the third trimester of pregnancy…

Once you’ve had your initial antenatal appointments and the excitement of the 20-week scan, it seems a while until you get to meet your baby again. In fact, in the UK, most couples’ next appointment with the midwife or GP will be at 25 weeks pregnant…Continue reading
