We have some rather exciting news- we are expecting baby three to join us at the end of October! We are all thankful and excited, and I am loving feeling this little ones tiny kicks. For some reason it has taken us ages to get around to telling friends and family (probably the busyness of life combined with living far away from most of them!) but I thought it was time to let you know- especially since I’m about 17 weeks now! Since this is my third pregnancy I started getting a bump quite early, and stretchmarks are becoming apparent again, but on the whole things are going well.
Phoebe likes listening to the baby and saying ‘baby grow all big’- I can’t imagine what she will say when I get an enormous tummy! Simeon doesn’t really understand it at this point- he will be about 20 months when the baby comes, but I am so looking forward to seeing how the three of them grow and build friendships as they get older, the same way Phoebe and Simeon are developing as siblings.
I know that time is going to fly past- after our summer holiday and the school holidays there will only be a month and a bit before baby comes! At this point I am finally less tired and less nauseous, starting to get heartburn and hoping that SPD won’t return, or at least too badly. I have been doing lots of pilates and walking to try to ward it off! Our first scan was lovely, seeing the baby moving around and all their tiny limbs is just as miraculous the third time around.
Yet again I am, finding myself hugely frustrated by the maternity clothes choice here in the UK. I wanted to know if it was just me, and what others thought about them, so I made a little survey. If I’m being honest I have some slightly crazy, fledgling ideas which may or may not take off from here some time in the next few years, but I want to get it right and know what other ladies think!
So you have been pregnant in the last few years (live in the UK) and would be willing to do a quick (10 question) survey for me I would be so grateful. Here’s the link! If you add your email at the end and a note saying ‘code’ or similar, I will send you a discount code for the shop to say thankyou.
I will endeavour to do some more bump updates at least to try and slow down time over the next few months. Hope you’re having a wonderful week!
