Well, it’s been four days since we found out I am pregnant again with number 2 and we’re still taking it all in!
As neither of us can hold in news like this for very long we have already told immediate family. Our theory being that, even if things went wrong, we’d still want those people to know so they would be there for us. Work, friends and the wider family can wait until the 12 week scan though! We invited Tony’s mum, dad and sister round to our house for a few drinks on the day we did the positive test. They all seemed quite surprised but really thrilled. They have really loved having a granddaughter / niece and have been so great in their new found roles over the past two years, so think they’re happy to be doing it all again!
I still have little in the way of symptoms to report – I have noticed an increase in hunger, and am a little more tired. The last few days i’ve felt a bit cloudy like a hangover (although I can assure you i haven’t been drinking!) although we have managed fairly late nights and disturbed sleep as Lilly has a bad cold (so do I) and keeps waking all night. I’ve also been quite thirsty – even though i’m drinking soft drinks all night i’m still waking up in the night parched. I’ve also been quite a cold bones lately – I know we are getting towards winter, but usually i’m always hot. And I’m probably needing to wee a little bit more often!
Yesterday T and I went to my cousin’s wedding in Scotland. Lilly stayed with her Nanna and Grandad, so we drove up early on Sat morning and came back today. We stayed out until gone midnight! It was 1am by the time we finally fell into bed, exhausted! That’s where we told my mum, and later that evening, my sister. Both were really happy about the news, (although my sis proceeded to get so drunk i’m not sure if she will actually remember it today!!).
One thing we didn’t prepare ourselves for was people asking us the “when are you going to have another one then?” question. Both times we were asked we stammered and made lame jokes… it must’ve been pretty obvious! But hey, never mind…
