excuses for feeling pathetic



These last few months I've been struggling a little. I've been exhausted, nauseous and emotional (more so than usual). My boobs have their own list of ailments and complaints that I won't go into here and my skin has had more break-outs than it ever did at 15. 

And now, 20 weeks down the line and feeling a hell of a lot better, I'm finally ready to type the words... I'm up the duff. Knocked up. Pregnant. 

I had my 20 week scan this morning. 

I had the feeling all along that there was a little boy in my tummy. And was I right? I'll let you know tomorrow, when I've had time to digest the matter myself, and mull over the new status quo due in our house sometime next April. Is it another girl to make it three to my husband's one? Or are we going to be a house of equals; two girls, two boys?

Whatever the case, we're happy and blessed to be adding to our little family. 

Ouch, but my boobs are bloody KILLING.

  1. Ahhh, I feel your pain as I remember the challenges pregnancy brings to your body. I had boils the size of golf balls, I was just hideous looking - so greasy too! But the second trimester is so much better. Have you any cravings yet? Very excited for you. xx

  2. May first pregnancy was a walk in the park, I had hardly any nausea, no headaches, nothing. I was full of energy and loved every minute. This time has made up for that easy ride. Now I know what other women are moaning about! I've been craving salt and vinegar peanuts and lime cordial although I have cravings when I'm not pregnant because I am both obsessive and greedy, so could just be down to that. X

  3. Congratulations my dear! For what it's worth I think you're having a boy. No idea if that's true by the way, just a guess ;)

    1. You are right! It is a boy! Now I'll have one of each to annoy with kisses. X

  4. Congratulations on being knocked up (your words, not mine!!) No wonder you've been feeling exhausted. And when it's not the first, there never seems to be ANY time to put your feet up. xxxxxx

    PS>> If it is a girl, you could always get a boy hamster to even things out.

  5. Ooo, exciting - I knew it was today but my phone is not working so I couldn't text you. Can't wait to find out if Wilf will have a girl friend or boy friend to play with x

  6. Yay, congratulations!! Hope you feel better soon, pregnancy can be so hard, but it will all be worth it in a few months when you meet the new person you've made. Having 2 kids is lovely, it certainly brings its challenges but they are far outweighed by the joys. Looking forward to finding out what flavour it is! xx
