Baby #2 | It's A...

You're all probably well aware that yesterday was the day of our gender scan, I mean I only mentioned it a few million times haha. It was a long day waiting until 6.30 to find out, but luckily our little pip didn't have their legs crossed and we are thrilled to announce it's a...
BOY!
We are over the moon and are so excited for Indiana to have a baby brother. He wasn't shy in showing us what he was at all haha, although he was in a pretty awkward position! We were lucky enough to see him in 3D as well which was amazing, especially considering how small he still is!
We cannot wait to start shopping and preparing for our little boy... I just wish I knew where to start!

16 Week Pregnancy Update | Baby #2

WOW! 16 Weeks! In just 3 days we'll know whether little pip is a brother or sister for Indiana, and I'll also (fingers crossed) get to hear the heartbeat at my 16 week midwife appointment! Time is whizzing by, and in a month I'll be half way already! Pip is the size of an Avacado and is about 4-5 inches long.

This week has been pretty normal, I've felt good and a lot of the time if I didn't look down I wouldn't even think I was pregnant haha. The only thing that's starting to change is my sleeping. I'm a full on tummy sleeper and with this growing bump it's becoming a bit of a challenge! I'm finding it hard to get comfy in bed in general and definitely think I need to invest in a pregnancy pillow at some point soon.

I've had a few vivid dreams this week too, none of which were very pleasant! Although I do remember one quite distinctly showing me I was having a boy. Who knows, but I have heard a lot of people who've dreamt one gender and had the other haha.

I'm wearing my very first piece of maternity clothing today! Only a simple vest top but it's a start haha. My tops are starting to ride up a bit too much so I think these will become a staple soon enough. My work trousers are definitely too tight as well, and I must invest in some maternity tights too!

We visited the Baby Show yesterday and saw some fab brands! The guys at Medela were extremely helpful and informative. We're considering breast feeding this time, and as Indie was bottle fed from the start we're complete novices (any advice is very welcome haha)! We've also definitely set in stone getting the iCandy Peach 3 Blossom as our double after giving it a spin too!

That's it for this week! I'll definitely be updating in the week with our gender reveal so keep an eye out! If not I'll be back next week for my 17 week update.
