We are having a...

22 June 2015

We are thrilled to officially announce that we are having another BOY!

We both knew in the back of our minds that it was going to be a boy but I think we were maybe secretly excited that it might be a girl.  I felt the slightest pang of wistfulness as the sonographer announced that we were having a boy.  Saying that thought, having another boy is awesome in so many different ways.  We have everything we need already - other than buying a few sheets and muslins - we are more than sorted for clothes and toys etc.  It also means Jack will have a brother to play with and grow up with.  Same sex babies, as one of my friends so aptly put it "Jackpot!".

I say this all the time, I am sorry for repeating myself but it still doesn't really feel like I am pregnant and going to have a baby in about 20 weeks.  If people ask me how far along I am I have to really think about it, sometimes, I have to look it up.  For my first pregnancy, I knew how far along I was to the day.  I am much more relaxed with what I eat and just being pregnant in general - I think working and looking after a toddler keeps me pretty busy.

Following on from that - I am slowly getting used to feeling tired all the time.  Some days are worse than others and coffee and chocolate help but no one can ever prepare you for the lack of sleep when having kids!  I should go to bed earlier but the evenings are my only time to myself and I love them, but I need to get more sleep so earlier bed times are on the agenda.  I am already feeling anxious about how we are going to cope with two children under 2 (well only for 2 months and then Jack will be two) but still - both will be in nappies and need lots of love and attention.  Are we going to be able to cope?  We struggle now with feeling tired - how the hell are we going to feel with a newborn????

Anyways, enough worrying and getting stressed. I know we will be OK, we will cope and it will be great.  What we need to do now is enjoy and soak up these next few months of summer, spending time with Jack, enjoying being pregnant and live each day.

So, YAY for another boy!!
