New one on the way!

Well my secret resolution is out of the bag…. I’m pregnant! 🙂 I cannot explain how happy I am. The thought of my daughter having a little brother or sister is the most amazing thing and puts the biggest smile on my face. I’m 13 weeks today and so far it has been so different to my first pregnancy. My first was easy. I didn’t get sick, I was active, ate quite normally…. this time, I’ve been quite sick, so unbelievably tired, craving starchy food and not denying myself… but I’m hoping it’ll start to ease off as I enter the 2nd trimester.

The 12 week ultrasound was amazing. We took our daughter in with us and it kind of made it all a bit more special. The baby was opening and closing it’s mouth drinking the fluid and rolling all over the place. Just amazing and now it all feels a lot more real. I just picture the image on the screen and it gets me smiling.

I want to try and be healthy. I’m so hungry all the time though and the thought of ‘healthy food’ is so not appealing! I’m not doing this round of 12wbt but I’m still incorporating some of her meals into our weekly dinners. I’ve been eating breakfast every day because I feel like I will drop if I don’t. I just tried eating a brown rice and tuna salad which I usually love but I’ve had about 4 bites and stopped. Pasta would go down a treat at the moment. Or cake. Or apple crumble with custard… eugh, see how bad my mind wanders!

So now my blog will incorporate another topic… my journey and the adjustment involved in adding a new member to the family. Stay tuned. 🙂
