24 weeks + 6 days
There is no more hiding it, I feel like my 'not telling' kind of translates to lying so here is what is happening in our world: I am pregnant. Quite a bit pregnant, actually.
There are a number of reasons I have kept quiet about my pregnancy, some of which I don't wish to divulge but I will say for the most part that I have felt much more private about it than I did when I was expecting Avalon. I think the fact I am kept so busy with a toddler plays a huge part in not really discussing it- I have hardly had a moment to digest these changes myself, nor have the 'luxury' I did the first time around of focussing wholely on mt growing bump.
We have told very few people we are expecting again, obviously those we see reguarly and dear friends and family know, but I have not 'announced' my pregnancy on Facebook- a surprise for some. I freely admit I'm more than a little addicted to the social networking site and through this blog and my Facebook acount, I say I live a pretty 'open' life.
There has been a lot G and I have had to work through this time and as one week rolled into the next I just decided to keep up with the 'not telling.' It may be really hard for some people to understand I am sure but for more than one reason I just wanted to focus on other parts of my life.
When baby arrives I will absolutely be blogging about our life with 2 children under 2, so it seems fitting that I do include this post- also as this blog has developed more into a journal of our life it is only right to mention the impending arrival of Mini DS as we call 'baby' (and no that is not an acronym for 'Dear Son'.)
So, if any of my friends are reading this, I respectfully ask you to keep 'mum'.
