Pregnancy how it really is….well with me anyway!

So if you didn’t already know I’m pregnant! YAY babies,babies,babies I love babies! I’ve been feeling pretty ill and sorry for myself so this is my first post in a couple of months …

Ok I understand that being pregnant is amazing, you are growing another human being! I also understand I am very lucky to be able to get pregnant BUT . . . . . . . . .
My husband will be the first to tell you I’m not very GOOD at being pregnant! I feel sick allllllllll day and go to bed at 8pm every night and generally gag at any food/perfume/cleaning product smell.

Once I finally get over that, I go into a crazed cleaning/organising/buying frenzy! the house has got to be perfect for this new little baby, we defiantly need to paint the hall/bedroom/bathroom.

I think the first 3 months of any pregnancy are the most exciting, scary and worrying times. You get the initial excitement, then you start to worry about what you should eat and stop doing, should you still work out? Should you still fly? Can I eat these prawns? And then after a few weeks it seems really real and you realise you have to give birth to this baby! And then you have to look after it! But I think the worst thing about the first 3 months or so is hiding it from everyone! We only told parents and a couple close friends when we found out, until we had the scan, just incase anything happened. But you feel like your lying to people, and I expanded at an alarming rate this time so it was quite difficult hiding my tummy!
I am finally in the second trimester and feel a wave of calm has come over me, I feel a lot less sick, and we’ve had our 12 week scan! It was amazing, it’s just the most incredible thing, to see this little baby move about and see their heart beating. It makes it very real ☺️
