Dear Daisy, It is your first day at school...

Apologies for the radio silence: Baby #2!!!!

Well as the title says I am sorry for the past few weeks where I have barely written or posted anything, either on here or on my social media channels. I have been feeling pretty rubbish to be honest but trying to continue to work, look after Daisy etc and sadly the blog came last on my to do list! I really just didn't have the GO in me to want to sit and look at a computer screen when I felt so nauseas!

And this little baby hopefully will hopefully explain why!

We are expecting baby number 2! Daisy is going to be a big sister next spring / early summer! How exciting! 

I will be doing updates on various parts of the pregnancy, a little like last time but I thought this was a good place to start initially! So I am 12-13 weeks now, and to be honest now it is public news I feel slightly better. I have felt so poorly and tired and hiding it was becoming a bit of a chore. Initially I wasn't going to tell anyone about the pregnancy until much later on, (Meaning close family and friends) as otherwise the pregnancy can feel like it lasts a lifetime for them as well as us and also it is nice to have a little secret to ourselves! But it didn't quite work out that way and with the mixture of emotions pregnancy brings we told them fairly early on! I also had a few things like my sisters hen party etc that I had arranged and I felt I would owe my sister for example an explanation why I would be a bit of a party pooper at times! 

If you have followed my blog for some time you will know I suffered with HG when I was expecting Daisy, I was never hospitalised but was closely medicated to control the sickness and it really did become quite debilitating in those first 20 odd weeks, I would spend every morning and evening on the bathroom floor. Not nice! This panicked me when we started talking about trying for a sibling for Daisy, what if I couldn't spend time with her and look after her like I wanted to? Why should she suffer? I have been so lucky. There is a very high chance that if you have had HG before then you are likely to suffer again, but I was one of the very lucky, rare ladies who haven't. I have morning sickness, nothing more severe than that. Now don't get me wrong it is awful, and I have struggled, I am in bed by 8.30pm every single night, I rarely see my husband once I have put Daisy to bed, the list of frustrations could go on. BUT I AM FEELING EXTREMELY LUCKY!!! 

I will be doing a post soon all about sickness and HG again, and how it really is hard being pregnant but wanting to remain so grateful for the little peapod you have growing inside of you and the opportunity you have to grow your family. 

So just a quick announcement and update for you, I shall be back soon with more!

Lots of love,
Hayley xxx

  1. Aww congrats! I was exactly the same with having HG the first time, but I haven't had it the second time either. One of the nurses at the hospital suggested the reason was that my 1st was a girl and this one would be a boy (and she was right), so that's my prediction for you, that you'll have one of each, lol! x
