As long as women have been getting pregnant, so has there been the old wives tales of gender prediction. Those that have been following Bump Watch know I am having a dilemma about whether I want to find out the sex of Tiny Tuppen or not. I so love the idea of having a surprise, but I feel the need to prepare for being the only girl in the family! It’s not that I don’t want another boy, It’s just I would love a girl. I worry that if I don’t find out, I might have a moment of disappointment at the birth. I’m sure and I’m certain that I won’t. I was hoping for a girl with Finlay, we found out the sex and although I had worried, I was was over the moon. obviously, the most important thing at the end of the day is a happy, healthy baby, but what the heart wants, it wants.… Read More
I apologise Bump watch was delayed this week as I intended to post it every Friday. Last week, however, was a pretty heart-wrenching day. Our beautiful old cat was rushed to vets with breathing difficulties. He has been diagnosed with heart failure and heart disease. I was pretty heartbroken and penned a post to him. I could really think about writing much else. Today I’m feeling a bit more positive, so here’s this week’s instalment of Bump watch albeit a little. On a plus I get to link straight up to #MaternityMondays
I still feel pretty small for 18 weeks. Not that I can remember how big I was with Finlay. I never documented it so I’m relying on my terrible memory! I don’t remember being able to hide the bump so well last time round, so that’s what makes me feel I am smaller. It may be just because I didn’t have to hide it last time.… Read More
Welcome to my first ever Bump Watch post. It seems so long ago now when I first found out I was pregnant with Tiny Tuppen #2. In fact, I think initially, I was in a bit of denial. It wasn’t that this baby wasn’t planned or wanted, but I was smack bang in the middle of a work dispute. Chris and I had been discussing expanding our family earlier in the year, but when I was issued with my ‘At Risk of Redundancy’ notice. The sensible option was to wait and see if I still had a job.
I learnt my job was safe and babies once again became a topic of conversation. However, as the universe likes to test us, I was then told my working pattern no longer fitted the organisation. My hours were cut, and my working pattern completely changed. It left me in a very difficult situation financially.… Read More
EEEK, So I have been keeping this a secret for quite some time. We have a Tiny Tuppen due, our little family of three is going to become four!!
I haven’t really told many people, mainly because of all the issues I have had recently at work. I needed to get everything officially sorted before I let on. Luckily, this little babba has been good to me so far and I have only just begun to show at 17 and half weeks. Still easily disguise as bloating!! I will be letting work know tomorrow – anxiety is setting in!
Anyway, this is the best news I have had in such a long time, I am so excited. I will update with a more detailed post of this pregnancy so far and I really look forward to being able to document the rest of the pregnancy, but for now – Pink or Blue, whats your guess??… Read More
