Some 'oh so scary but actually quite exciting' news...

I have said this before (and I will probably say it again) life has a way of throwing some very unexpected curve balls at times. Just when you think you have got it all worked out, things are coming together, there is light at the end of the long, dark tunnel and you can finally rest on your laurels (and other such cliches) the Universe has a little chuckle before throwing you in the deep end . . .

*stop beating around the bush and get to the point*



Last week I discovered I am pregnant again. That's right folks, I am having another baby. At 38.

EEEEEEK!!!!

Completely unexpected.

Certainly not planned.

Am currently ping ponging between 'absolutely bloody terrified' and 'very happy actually'

So if I seem a bit vague over the next few weeks, now you know why!!

:-)


**UPDATE** sadly I suffered a miscarriage a few days after writing this post. I have thought about removing this post entirely but decided against it as, however brief, this baby was part of our family story too.  xx

  8. Congratulations. You'll be fine! We're just hoping you have a better birth experience this time!

    Spose that means I'd better start sorting out all the baby clothes I put in the attic for a rainy day then...
