This pregnancy I feel so much more at ease. I’m not stressing about the ‘unexpected’ or needing all them ‘essentials’ that I really don’t need at all. I’m chilled out and because of that this pregnancy is flying by, 17 weeks left until baby number two makes his grand into the world (let’s just hope its not on Christmas day like his due date suggests). Although this time, I think we will have a few names picked out as Darragh was called baby for almost two weeks. Why is it that boys names are so much harder to pick out, before we knew the gender we had 10 girls names already, boys names 0, zlich, nada.
This will probably be my last pregnancy as we only really planned on having two, but I’ll not rule anything out yet so I plan to soak everything up. Give me all the maternity clothes, pregnancy massages and little baby kicks, not bleeding for 9 months is also a plus I’m embracing everything! My labour plan is basically just to see how it goes, there isn’t really a plan as such. I want to do everything as natural as possible, just because I think the recovery will easier especially with a toddler to look after as well.
We found out the gender of our baby at the 20-week scan, and had a small gender reveal. I knew it was a boy before the scan I think you just get a feeling and I’m so excited to be a boy mom. We’re lucky enough to have kept all of Darraghs baby clothes and toys, so this time around we don’t really have anything to buy, which I’m a little disappointed by because baby clothes are literally my favourite thing to buy. Who doesn’t find a tiny little baby grow irresistible?
I’m so excited to find out his little personality, and watch him grow up with his big brother by his side. Two little boys to hold forever.
