Here we go again…

Just because we thought our life wasn’t busy enough, ¬†Jonathan and I decided it was time to have another baby. To our delight Baby Brown number 3 is due in July. We are all very excited especially Olivia, who is convinced she is getting a baby sister this time and regularly argues with Jonathan as he keeps telling her it’s a boy. Either way I know she will be the doting and protective big sister she is to Jack.

Jack on the other hand is a Mummies boy and a bit of a sook, he will probably take a little more time to adjust to the new addition. When they are older it will be great, they will be only 19 months apart.

So as much as I am very excited the last few months have been really tough!! Morning sickness is awful, I have a constant hangover without the party and caprioskas the night before. From about 3 in the afternoon I go downhill at a rapid rate, sometimes I have to get up in the middle of the night and eat a banana or a vegemite sandwich because I feel so ill. I had the same with Olivia but it was 24-7,at least I’m getting a little relief this time. It’s definately a struggle with a 1 year old but looking at Olivia and Jack I know it’s all worth it.

I’ve just hit the 14 week mark and I thought I would share my highlights so far- some good, some bad and some funny.

– Doing the pregnancy test 4 days before I was due and getting a positive result.

– Telling Olivia she was going to be a big sister again (She’s been asking for a while)

– Spending our family holiday in Yamba bed ridden and going back and forth to the chemist to get different medications to try.

– Not being able to go in the kitchen when anything is cooking without dry reaching.

– Changing Jack’s dirty nappy, first thing in the morning even before breakfast (argh)

– Sitting in the kitchen in the middle of the night eating to try and stop the nausea, I feel like my dad who has midnight snacks.

– Having the 13 week scan and seeing a healthy baby dancing around.

– Olivia’s face when I showed her the ultrasound pictures, melts my heart.

But my personal favourite, after going out for ice-cream I felt really nauseous on the was home, I had been leaning over a plastic bag concentrating on not being sick, As we drove in the front gate I said to Jonathan “can you get the kids out of the car please, I have to go straight to the toilet.”

JB’s response “Yeah no worries, can you just turn the sprinkler off on your way through”

Full of sympathy my Browndog ha ha
