While writing this update this morning, snuggled in my bed with a decaf cup of tea Dave made for me, I totally forgot I should have seen a midwife this week! Don't worry, I have made one for next week instead, and I do have a good excuse. You see, last week my little Ali-bum turned 2 years old, and I have been a bit of an emotional wreck. I think it must be pregnancy hormones combined with the realisation my baby is no longer a baby... whatever it is I have been looking back at old pictures of Alice as a little bubba every evening before bed. I just can't believe how fast those first 2 years went! And I absolutely will make sure to cherish every moment with this new little one because before I know it, the time will be gone again :(
Ok. So, enough of the boohoo's... this week I finally felt baby move about! It was unmistakable and pretty amazing. Babies little tiny feet were kicking away for about an hour (which may have been something to do with the amount of chocolate I ate that night... oops). My bump has gotten BIG. I mean, considering I'm only just 4 months it's much bigger than when I was pregnant with Alice. But I'm happy as I do love having a little bump poking out to show off and dress up :)
I can't help but start slightly worrying about the realisation of having 2 children. Well... not really 2 children, about having a newborn and a toddler. My main fears are that I will neglect Alice too much in the first couple of months, that the little baby will constantly wake up Alice who really relies on sleep to be in a good mood (don't we all??) and that I'll be totally overwhelmed and wont leave the house for the next two years alone with them. I'm fairly sure these are normal fears, but I have them all the same...
Not had too much sickness recently and not really craving anything. Have felt a little dizzy and faint occasionally which I think is down to being on my feet a lot in the day while running around after Alice. I know I need to take it a little easier, but it's so hard when you have a demanding, tantrum-throwing little toddler to deal with! But I shall get through it... especially as there is some lovely warm sun predicted for next week!
Yay for Spring!!
