Seeing as I’m still waiting around for little Ernie bear to make an appearance, I thought I might as well write my third trimester update. I know that once he is born, I’m unlilely to get around to it any time soon and I wanted to write it while it is all still fresh in my mind. I remember that as soon as Darcie was born, all my memory of pregnancy was wiped, which is probably why I was so happy to do it again! I’m currently three days overdue and so now is as good a time as ever to tell you all how the third trimester has been.
I know, I know. I’m 33 weeks pregnant and only just getting around to sitting down and writing my second trimester update. (Sort it out Hanna!). I know I’ll kick myself if I don’t record this pregnancy on here, time is running away from me so I’m really going to try to include more pregnancy related content over the next couple of months. I could come up with a million excuses as to why my pregnancy content has been lacking but I think it basically comes down to the fact that this is my second pregnancy, and to be honest most of the time I forget that I am even pregnant at all! Writing about it doesn’t even occur to me because it’s not new to me this time. That has been the main thing that has really struck me throughout this pregnancy, it is SO similar to my first. Unless I’m about to have the surprise of my life when I give birth, you can forget all those myths about how different it is being pregnant with a boy or a girl. For me, it’s been virtually identical.

Today something really special happened. You won’t understand it at all yet but today I told you something amazing, something you definitely don’t hear every day. I told you that you are going to be a big sister. I showed you a blue and white stick that had two lines on it, one very faint but definitely there, and I cried and told you how amazing it is and that Mummy is going to give you a best friend for life. You looked at me as I cried tears of happiness and you laughed and tried to grab the stick and put it in your mouth, that made me laugh and then we were both laughing while I was still crying.

Unless you are somebody who solely reads this blog and doesn’t follow me across social media, then you will probably have already seen my pregnancy announcement last week! I feel like I’ve been waiting forever to share this news with the blog as we wanted to make sure we had told all of our friends and family in person, where possible, before we posted the news online. I am now 15 weeks pregnant and due on the 24th June 2018. That date seems so far away but from how quickly time has flown by since having Darcie, I just know that it will come round before we know it.
