Well, I started off the year with every intention to write on my blog more…but of course when life gets busy somethings gotta give. And, unfortunately, at those times the first thing to go is my blog.
In my last post back in
And then…fairly soon after that, we found out that I was pregnant with our second baby! We are so excited for another little person to be joining our little family in January 2020. (Note: If you know me or if you follow me on Instagram you have probably already seen our pregnancy announcement and my bump updates, but I wanted to document it over here on my blog as well).
I am now in the third trimester (already!). So far, this pregnancy has felt very different to my first in so many ways. For the first few months, I felt nauseous but I have only been physically sick a few times. I feel a LOT more tired this time around, although I think part of the reason for that is the gorgeous little 4-year-old I have to run around after all the time!

We have decided to wait for a surprise this time around so we don’t know whether our little baby is a boy or a girl yet. I’m finding it much harder to know what to buy for this baby, although we have bought a few neutral things. And I’m holding out till after
I recently had a fetal echo ultrasound to check baby’s heart and they said that at this stage everything looks good. Of course, they also said that sometimes they can’t see holes if they are small, but reassured us with the knowledge that if this baby has a heart murmur after they are born they will be more than happy to do a scan for us then. They also said that baby is measuring bit small (10th percentile) so I’ve been booked in for a growth scan in around 6 weeks time. All in all, things are going well and we are both very happy. We can’t wait to meet our littlest love and to see Elijah become a big brother.
