I'm still here... baby #2 on the way

You may have been wondering where I've been for the last 2 months! Well there are a variety of reasons for my absence but it's time for me to fess up! The main one can be seen in the pictures below :)

For the last 2 months I have been suffering really badly with morning sickness or my version of it which is basically 24hrs a day nausea. I was like this when I was pregnant with F. Even wearing travel sickness acupressure bands haven't stopped it completely, but they have made enough of a difference for me to cope with the nausea and keep F going to his usual activities. By the time it's got to the evening I've been totally shattered and have been in bed shortly after F to snuggle under the duvet for the majority of nights!

As of today I'm 12wks and 3days and supposed to be heading into the time when all pregnant women get that glow... no sign of that with me yet though! If this pregnancy goes like F's I've only got about 2wks of nausea to go... fingers crossed.

One of the things that have been different this time are my cravings. Last time I went chocoholic and tomato soup mad... which was very strange as I loathe tomato soup and i'm not usually that fussed about chocolate. I also went off fish and avocados which I normally love. This time my cravings have been for apples, avocados, egg mayonaise sandwiches, potatoes & mature cheddar cheese... and i've gone off meats like chicken/beef/turkey etc unless they're hidden in casseroles and soups! Weird :)

I had to fish out my maternity clothes at 9wks as my tummy decided to expand very quickly... I think when you've done it before it always shows quicker. At least I didn't go through a stage of looking like I'd been eating too many cream cakes...  thankfully just straight from looking not pregnant to she's definitely pregnant. We told a few people early as there was no way I could hide it. So there's still a long time to go but i'm sure it'll be may 15th before we know it!


  1. Big congratulations on your news!

  2. Congrats on the coming addition. I hope your day sickness eases up soon. I was sick all throughout my pregnancies up until the day I gave birth, so atleast you won't be like me. ;-)
    You know, all this time I thought you just weren't posting! I put my blogroll rss feeds on my phone today, and to my surprise I saw you had several recent posts. I came back to your blog and realized you've stuck the post about your pattern at the top of your blog and had fresh posts beneath it. I could smack myself! I never bothered to scroll down, I always looked and saw the pattern post and then left! lol I haven't been blogging as regularly as I used to and had been meaning to send you a message to see if you were okay. I really need to pay attention. lol

    I think you should have your baby on May 5th, and you can tell him/her I said so. All sorts of great people were born on that day! Well, just lil' ol' me really. ;-)
