A Little Life Update

So those eagled-eyed amongst you will probably have noticed I have been a little quiet on my blog recently, and a little absent from my instagram as well. Over the past few months I have been keeping a little secret that has left me in a bubble of excitement and complete joy mixed with exhaustion, nausea and overwhelming emotion. I am pregnant! Baby number two is on its way next March and Florence seems thrilled to have a new friend to play with arriving soon.

I have felt completely different this pregnancy than with Florence – I didn’t have any sickness or nausea the first time around and I don’t even remember feeling that tired. This time around I have felt exhausted and really suffered from nausea every day from around week 6 to week 11. Although now thankfully the nausea has lifted I still feel incredibly tired most days but I think that is just how us Mums tend to feel most days, especially running after a toddler or getting broken newborn baby sleep! It just seems emphasised when you are also growing a tiny person inside of you!

But believe me when I say I am not moaning one bit – I am unbelievably thankful and excited for this next chapter and now I am into the second trimester I am looking forward to benefiting from a resurgence of energy and enjoying this middle period. I am pleased that I have managed to maintain my running and have been doing 4-5 miles four to five times a week. I have always loved running and ran waddled all the way through my pregnancy with Florence and was at boot camp up until I was 36 weeks pregnant! Running makes me feel good and I definitely felt the rewards of keeping active during my labour so I vow to follow suit this time around as well.

Since I found out I was expecting, I certainly have felt really removed from social media and a little lost to be honest. I just wanted to submerge myself in this happy little bubble which is always tinged with incredible anxiety until you reach that 12 week ultrasound scan. But I have really missed blogging and staying connected via instagram and twitter and now I feel like my mojo is returning and I am ready to get back on it! So do let me know if you enjoyed my pregnancy-related posts the first time around or if you would like to see anything else from me during this pregnancy?

Also a massive, heart-felt thank you to everyone who has sent me congratulations and kind messages on my twitter and instagram recently – it has been overwhelming and bump and I are certainly feeling the love!

    Congratulations to you and Rob! Such amazing news! (So envious of your dedication to running, I bruised the ball of my foot the other week – rogue plug woes – and haven’t ran since!!) x

    Aw babes I wondered where you had got to! Congratulations on your fab news, I don’t blame you from being MIA on social, it’s not exactly as fun as back in the day on there right now anyway. Sending lots of love xoxo

    Congratulations! That is so exciting! To be honest, I’ve thought several times during the last few weeks that this was what’s up.
    I would love the return of pregnancy updates! I’m currently at 20 weeks with baby number 2 (our first is 6 months older than F), so I would love to follow this pregnancy as well.
    And I agree, this time around it is so much more exhausting. There simply isn’t the time to go and rest whenever needed. I do however try to stay active, because I also found it so helpful during labor last time. Would be lovely with some inspiration.
