Hello dear readers, I hope you’re well and are enjoying the lovely summer weather we have been having. I’m melting as always! It has been a few weeks since my last blog, my apologies. We have received exciting and scary news here in The Burrow. I’m pregnant! 13 weeks! Yep, we are expecting our third child. AHHHHHHH!
So yeah, I’m pregnant and honestly…I am really happy. Correction. WE are really happy and cannot wait to meet the newest member of the clan. We knew we wanted at least one more child and feel extremely lucky that we have managed to create a little life.
We told our eldest who is beyond excited and insists it’s going to be his baby sister, so no pressure. Youngest just gently tapped tummy and giggled which of course was adorable. I can’t wait for them to meet their new sibling and just know they will adjust as best they can. The bond our boys have together makes me so proud to be their mother. Of course they have the normal sibling fights but, blah, that’s human.
This pregnancy so far has been pretty tough. The last one was Agh but this one is AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Just nasty. My morning sickness has been awful. Seriously, the slightest smell, or taste of any food can set me off. The toilet has become my best friend and wants to get matching bracelets. I have completely gone off coffee which sucks because it was a caffeine fix that helped keep me functioning throughout the day. Thankfully I can stomach tea! YAY! Food cravings have not been too bad. For a while it was the trusty BLT, than Chinese food and now it’s just meat! Lots and lots of meat.
For the better part of more than a few weeks I have felt exhausted and not just from running around after two boys. I literally have lost the motivation to do anything. Even breathing seems like an effort to me. It’s maddening.
Our first scan went ok. Well, as ok as it can with two energetic boys in tow. But baby is all healthy and happy, jumping about and turning away from the camera. Pretty much like the boys did. They just don’t like having their picture taken in the womb and always turn their back on it.
I am hoping that in the coming weeks the morning sickness will cut me some slack and my motivation will return. In the meantime I feel trapped in limbo of running to the toilet and passing out from tiredness. Joy…But I know in the long run it is worth it. Totally worth it.
For now I am resting as much as I can, catching up on writing and reading and just general being a pregnant person waddling around demanding food before throwing it all up and then passing out from exhaustion. It’s these days that I know I will look back on later in life and think ‘Yep, I don’t regret a thing.”
Say hello to Kitsune. The newest member of the clan.
