It feels like I’ve been waiting forever to finally tell you all our news! The fact that I haven’t has definitely contributed to my lack of blogging/vlogging over the last few months, I’ve had so much to say but I’ve not been able to so I’ve kinda said nothing at all, sorry! We found out we were expecting our third baby when I was 4 weeks pregnant so it’s been a long 8 weeks waiting for my 12 week scan. We are due on the 29th on November!
The other reason I’ve been so quiet is that this tiny little baba inside me has been well and truly kicking my ass! From week 6 I’ve felt sick every second of every day and mentally it’s been really hard, I felt just as rubbish when I was carrying Ava but at least I could relax a lot more and go to bed when I needed, this time round I have a very energetic toddler to look after and I am exhausted. This has been a lot harder than I ever expected and the mom guilt I’m feeling right now is off the scale. I know Ava won’t remember any of this but I can’t help feel guilty for everyday we have spent in or everyday I’ve been too sick to play with her properly, it breaks my heart.
Other than the nausea, bloating and tiredness I haven’t really had any other symptoms or any noticeable cravings other than fruit, but I crave fruit if I’ve had days of eating rubbish anyway.
As well as our 12 weeks scan we also had a private scan at 8 weeks, purely because we had one with Ava and I find private scans are so much nicer and personable, we got lots of photos and saw little one moving about and saw and heard their little heart beating, we also had a thermal image done which is just bizarre to see.
My second trimester with Ava bought along SPD so I’m just waiting for that to kick in (and praying it doesn’t). I would really like to enjoy this pregnancy as I didn’t at all with Ava, but we shall just have to wait and see! Fingers crossed!
I’ve made a little video for my YouTube channel (channel name Mama Mighalls) which you can watch down below, its just a collection of photos documenting our lives together so far, it’s been lovely to make and look back on.
Let me know if there are any pregnancy related blog posts or videos you would like too see. I plan to document as much as this pregnancy as I can as I’m pretty sure this will be our last baby. We are also planning on having a private gender scan at 16 weeks so look out for that! What are your predictions? I have no idea at the minute but I think I’m leaning more towards boy.
Love Amy and bump! X
