14 Weeks Pregnant Update

For those of you that don’t follow me on social media, we are expecting our second baby. 
Keaton is 2.5 years, so thought it would be a good age gap – he will be a couple of weeks shy of 3 when the baby comes, so will be super exciting.

As with Keaton, I have had really bad morning sickness, this time it seems to be much worse, in that I have been having to take morning sickness tablets every morning so I can function. The positive however, is that I seem to be able to manage without them now, which is great, as I was sick with Keaton until 20 weeks. Fingers crossed this is the end of it.

I have been taking pictures, (when I remember) of my little growing bump – which I have say is popping out quicker than it did with Keaton (I guess it’s already all stretched from him).
We have decided to call “it” Terry – now it won’t be the babies name, but I don’t like calling it well “it” and with Keaton, we called him “Baby R”, and we can’t call this one “Baby R squared”, so Terry it is!!!!

We managed to keep the secret for 14 weeks, which is really good for me, because I can’t keep quiet about most things. This was how we announced it to our friends:
Here is an update on my 14th week of pregnancy with baby #2 - will have a pic next week.  I will be doing a weekly update on what is happening in my pregnancy (wooohooo I finally have something to blog about – I have had a bit of a block for a while). So if you want to read how my 14th week has been, keep reading.

Sleep: last week was the first week I managed to stay up past 8pm – so things are looking up

Best moment this week: Hearing the heart beat

Belly button in or out? In
