Baby Due in August 2016

We Have Something To Tell You…

When you have a blog and share your life with people, having a secret can be really difficult. When all you want to do is talk about that one thing it leaves you with nothing else to say. That is what has been going on here the last few months. I’ve written a few reviews and carried on with Happy Days but besides that I have been pretty quiet on the blog and almost non existent on social media.

A few months ago this blog was taking over my days and stats and rankings were important to me. This has all had to change as quite honestly I have been so tired and poorly I’ve not had the strength to write a single word or care about the blog at all. It has been a good thing though, it has made me see that blogging is not the be all and end all and all that really matters is my family.

But finally, after months of hiding the truth and feeling like I had nothing else to share, I am show you why I have been absent, why I have been so totally rubbish at replying to tweets or comments …

Baby 12 week scan

Albeit a very stubborn little one who would not turn the right way for a photo, we have a very happy and healthy little baby due for arrival late August / early September. I am still in shock to be honest with you and probably won’t believe it until he or she is safely with us.

I found out on Christmas eve and have written a couple of posts already if you fancy looking back in time- one the afternoon that I took the test and one after I’d told Mr F on Christmas day.

The girls have been so worried and so it was such a relief to be able to tell them. I thought Little G was going to cry she was so happy and LJ doesn’t really have a clue bless her!

Still a long way to go but I hope you will follow our journey as we prepare to become a family of 5… *faints*.

    Oh, wonderful lady. I am so happy for you. This is the most fantastic news. You must be so thrilled. But I can understand why you won’t be happy until the babe is in your arms. I feel exactly the same. It must have been lovely to tell Mr F on Christmas Day. Hugs Lucy xxxx

    Firstly congratulation to both you and your hubby. I love having 3 children and they are close in age as yours will be. Secondly I thought you’d been a bit quiet on the social media front, although you got straight back to me when I needed help, thank you sweetie. I wish you a happy healthy pregnancy you already are a wonderful mummy. Sammie xxx

    Congratulations! Understand about not feeling like blogging in the first trimester. I was the same and totally neglected my blog. But, as soon as I felt better and had passed the scan at 13 weeks I set up my new mummy blog (due to go live very soon). Now I get to write all about my excitement and baby shopping counts as research!

    Oh wow! Congratulations to you!!! Such lovely news!

    Can sympathise on the blog front, I have been so quiet on my blog lately since being pregnant and now with the arrival of our little girl. But I just decided that although I love blogging and want to pursue it more, my family and my health are more important. So I’ve been taking care of those first and foremost. Glad to see that you are doing the same – and your blog is still fantastic by the way! xx

    Awww Katy, this really is such exciting news! I can completly relate with our second little one being a bit of a surprise and catching us off guard, but once you get your head around it all it really is quite exciting (although I still have the odd day where I cant believe that I am pregnant!). So pleased you are joining the 2016 bump club, look forward to reading and hearing more about pregnancy a third time round 🙂 Emily

      Thanks Emily, it really doesn’t seem real yet. I don’t think it will seem real until he/she actually arrives. I actually didn’t realise there were so many of us in the 2016 bump club- so exciting! x
