We’re Having A Baby!

Yes, you read that title right, I am pregnant!! It feels so amazing to finally announce the news with you as it has been one of the hardest secrets to keep. All I wanted to do is just scream it from the rooftops, but finally, I can share it with you! I am due on 8th January 2021. As I am typing this I am 17 weeks pregnant and I announced the exciting news on my social media a couple weeks ago, so if you are one of the lovely people who messaged me then thank you for all of the support and love. I have had my little blog for so many years now and you have all read about my achievements, my mistakes and ridiculous storytimes so I am so happy to share me and Harrys exciting new journey. For today’s post, I am going to be answering all the questions I have received so I hope you enjoy.

How and when did we find out?
My periods were always like clockwork and I was never any later than 2 days, but at the beginning of May when I was waiting for mother nature to do her thing and 10 days passed and I was still late I thought I better do a test. But I made the mistake of doing my first test late at night, which came back as negative. I didn’t think too much of it, but 5 more days passed and still no period, so I took another test in the morning and this one came back as positive! I was so happy when I saw the two lines and knew this was everything I have ever wanted, I have always dreamt of being a mum.

How did we announce it to our family?
When I first found out all I needed was advice and support so I drove straight back home to see my family and they were so thrilled with the news. I don’t know how my mum does it but she knew straight away I was pregnant, even as a kid she knew what I was going to do before I even did it! But I didn’t want to tell anyone else until the scan was booked in my calendar, and that was soo hard to keep secret. When I had my scan I sadly had to do it alone due to COVID-19, but it was the most amazing time to see the little bean up close. It finally felt so real and was such an emotional time.

When I was 14 weeks we went over a million ways to tell people and the first person on my list was Phoebe. We were sat in Boston Tea Party having brunch and then I suddenly pulled out the images of my scan and I can assure you there were tears, screams and hugs. It was one of my favourite moments. After that, I planned get-togethers with my grandparents and extended family and announcing it was so amazing and yet again there were tears of joy. It has been the happiest news we were all waiting for.

Is the first trimester as bad as everyone claims?
Oh my gosh, YES. When you hear about pregnancy people mention the morning sickness and then the baby glow, but the first trimester really is hard. When I was about 4 weeks up until 14 weeks I was sick about 2-3 times a day and my worst day was 7 times, the main things that helped were eating small but often and ginger biscuits were a must to curb nausea. Now lets not even mention how sore your boobs get!! Although it was very tough on my body and mind, I have never been happier – it is so magical to know I am growing a mini-me in me.

Has my body noticeably changed yet?
I have just placed my first maternity clothes order as I have had to put half my wardrobe in vacuum-sealed bags in the attic. By the time I was 10 weeks my boobs already grown up a cup size and soon after skirts stopped zipping up. I have noticed that at the moment as my bump is forming I just look a bit bloated at the moment as if I have ate three bowls of rice haha. All the hormones have made my hair grow so quickly and my nails have never been stronger (thank you baby).

I am so excited for all of the memories to come and sharing this journey with you!

Until next time,

    Congratulations again! You are actually one of two bloggers that I follow who is pregnant and has just finished their first trimester and have written about how bad the first trimester is… fingers crossed that when I get to the point of having a baby that there will be a miraculous creation to stop morning sickness because I cannot handle being sick multiple times a day! I am so excited to follow you on their journey and I can definitely see you turning this into a mommy blog (or creating a separate mommy blog)! xx
