If you follow me on Instagram then you will have already seen our special news! But if not then here goes……We’re having a baby!!
Due February 12th 2019, we’ve been waiting to add to our family for 6 years!! To be honest the journey we have taken to get here has been a long one but we’re over the moon!! We’ve been trying for 6 years and for it to finally happen was like a dream come true. I had nearly given up all hope and was beginning to accept that maybe another baby just wasn’t going to happen for us.
Keeping it a secret was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do especially from my step son and my little munchkin. Of course we told close family and friends but we didn’t want to say anything until we’d been for our scan and told all was fine.
From the day we found out I was pregnant I’ve made sure to document everything as it was something I never had chance to do with the munchkin andI don’t really have anything to look back on while I was having him, and it makes me so sad. This time I want it to be special for us all.
My Dearest Step-Son,
Never in a million years did I think I was going to be a mum, let alone a step-mum but you and your brother are my biggest gifts. I’m very lucky to have a boy like you in my life and you’ve taught me so much.
You’ve no idea just how special you are and how much I love you. I’ll never forget the day I met you. You were tiny and so lively, you melted my heart.
I’m not going to pretend I know what it’s like to have my parents split up because I don’t I’m always thinking about you and how difficult things are for you on a daily basis. I get that it’s hard living in 2 separate homes with 2 sets of belongings and I totally understand that you can’t see your sisters, mummy and day everyday. It’s tough and if I could change things I would.
I’ve been wanting to get this review up for so long now but I’ve finally managed to get myself sorted and get it out to you today. My blogging has been all over the place because I’ve been quite ill and just so tired. I will get back myself back in to a routine with my posts!
The lovely Co-Founder, George from this wonderful brand emailed me and asked if I’d like to try a product. Of course I said yes as I do love my bath products and was sent a lovely sample of their Relax, Naturally Bath Salts*
Today, I want to talk about exercise and why staying fit and healthy will help aid conception. People that know me will probably be reading this and think I’m getting a little too obsessive over the whole baby thing and to be honest, maybe I am but I’m not getting any younger and as time ticks on so does the sound of my body clock. I understand that I’ve been putting a little pressure on myself and the OH to have a baby but we’re still having fun and when it’s our time it’ll happen.
I’ve started to become a little more of a health nut too because I look back at when I feel pregnant with Mason and I was about 2 stone lighter, much fitter as I was out running most evenings after work, yes I smoked and enjoyed my weekend to binge drink but I was definitely much fitter than I am today. I mean I can barely run to my mum’s without being out of breath so I decided enough is enough! I haven’t joined a gym just yet, but that will be on the cards at some point in the future. I just wanted to try a few things at home first.
I think a lot of women, like myself wonder if having a Cervical Screening Test (also known as a Smear Test) can affect your chances of conception. I know I questioned myself exactly this when I got my reminder letter in the post.
For me, my health is really important and I think that having a Cervical Screening Test is equally important. I remember getting my first letter through the post and I was so scared and worried about it, but there really isn’t anything to worry about.
