So It’s Been A While…And Here’s Why!

mother and baby

So, I’m back!

Actually feels good to sit here and write; it certainly has been a while since I have been able to do that.

There are a ton of reasons for my (mainly) June absence. First of all, report writing season at school. No life and freedom for a few weeks basically.

Secondly and of course the most important…

I am going to be a mummy!!!!

Yup, a first time for us and so I have had my head down the toilet. Regularly. It really has been a rough month or so dealing with a whole new load of changes, bodily and otherwise.

I won’t brag about the details of the first trimester; loads of you will be able to read between my lines I am sure and know exactly where I am coming from.

We’re both thrilled to bits and taking each day as it comes. Things started to feel more real at the 12 week scan and now I have a small bump which is making clothes wearing interesting.

Baby is due on the 28th December, but I am hoping that I at least get into early January before the arrival. Needless to say we won’t be hosting Christmas! baby booties

Hopefully now I shall be a bit more regular with blog posts, rather than worrying about puking all over the laptop.

Feels good to be back!
