I think I'm pregnant...
.. well, now I'm writing this I know I am! It's very early stages at the moment. We found out 2 days ago but I've been having very strong suspicions for about 3 weeks. Last time I had no idea but this time I think my body remembers the subtle feelings that early pregnancy brings. My boobs have been aching now and then, I've been getting headaches, feeling a bit queasy and my belly has hurt loads when I really need a wee. I am really thirsty and have gone off sweet things and am craving salty food, which happened the first time round too.
Doing the test and seeing the result was no real surprise to me. I didn't feel anything. I have however had enjoyable pangs of nerves each time I have told anyone. Unlike some people we have told our close friends and family even though we are so early on because should anything not work out we would tell them anyway.
Day two of knowing about this new life beginning in my belly was more of a roller coaster. Most of the day went by as normal although I am feeling very tired but by the end of the day I was so tired and emotional it was ridiculous - cue the unexplained and over the top crying. I am quite scared, despite having done it once before, this time I know how much it will change me and my life.
The main thing I will do differently this time is try not to put on as much weight, last time I got pretty hefty and it meant that I felt horrible towards the end and it was hard to enjoy. I know it's a bit early but I needed some new jeans so today I bought some maternity jeans that fit perfectly now and have loads of space for a big belly but not much space for my legs to get fat so I'm hoping this will give me some incentive not to get too chubby, although I know a little bit is inevitable.
Jacob is doing really well at the moment. We're very excited for him to have a sibling and we are just crossing our fingers that the next one is as good as him!
