There's another wee Muddle on the way! I had my scan last week and I am now 14 weeks pregnant, and firmly in the "blooming" (yeah, right) second trimester.
I have to admit that we were not particularly 'planning' a third baby. However having said that, both Big Muddle and Baby Muddle were surprise additions, so we have pretty bad form when it comes to family "planning", haha.
So far, compared to the girls, this has actually been a pretty easy pregnancy. I've had a little nausea, but nowhere near the total food aversion (bar Coco Pops and Haribo!) that I've had previously. The difficult thing was being in early pregnancy over Christmas. This meant we had to 'fess up to pretty much anyone we were going to see, which made the first scan very, very nerve wracking indeed. You know how sometimes you don't realise how stressed you are until you feel the pressure lift off you? Yep, that's how I felt seeing the flicker in the chest of the wriggly baby on that screen.
We've already had to make some space for the baby. Baby Muddle has moved in with her sister, a change which is going remarkably well in fairness. Its been about three weeks so far, but I think we are all sleeping a lot better, which is great, and she's needing less and less settling through the night as the time passes. I think sharing with her beloved big sister has been the key, she's always been her most favourite person.
I'm really looking forward to being able to blog these next six months, as a nice keepsake of what will, definitely, be my last pregnancy. I hope to not bore you too much!
