First of all Happy New Year to all ..
Its been awhile since I’ve wrote a blog post due to work , helping with getting a family business up and running (The Sausage Experience) & I suppose the main thing been “growing” a baby !!
For those of you that might not know I am 25 + weeks pregnant on my 2nd child … we are absolutely thrilled & so is Finn (1st Born )
But this pregnancy has taken a lot out of me since the day I did the test , I suppose I was so lucky on Finn I had no pregnancy side effects but on this one I’ve had everything I think that you could have with pregnancy!!
Where do I start – 24hr nausea yes ladies 24hr , I thought it was called “morning sickness” for a reason but I had it day & night for the first 12 weeks , I don’t know was I lucky or unlucky not to get sick but feeling sick 24hrs a day …
The tiredness in the first trimester was just unbelievable omg I never witnessed anything like it , I was tired on first born but nothing like this tiredness this time round . I know on the 2nd pregnancy you can’t rest as much as you have a little child that needs your attention.
Skin Break Out – yes I got that too , which I didn’t get on 1st Born my skin was glowing ! ( they say break out is sign of a girl that she is taking your beauty .. we will have to wait till early May to see if this is true )
And to top it off my blood type is Rhesus negative – so for those of you that haven’t heard of Rhesus negative it’s the symbol after your blood type , so I am A – if you are R negative it’s one to watch when pregnant , if you have a bleed or your bump gets a knock e.g you fall , someone runs into your bump you have to have an injection within so many hours of the bump or bleed happening so blood won’t mix with babies blood as the baby could be a different blood type and also if you want to have more children that your body won’t reject them … sure enough Finn bumped straight into the bump at 14 weeks so I was off to the emergency rooms of CUMH for the injection but all was fine ….
That’s my first 6 months of pregnancy for you in a nut shell !!!
I’m in my 2nd trimester now and so far it’s going well , only that my iron levels are low so trying my best to get them up by eating loads of red meat & on iron tonic ( trying to avoid Iron injections) and time is flying by , I think been pregnant over 2 years breaks it and it goes faster …
More pregnancy posts to come on pregnancy fashion , my consultant, packing for hospital…
Till next Time ,
