As we approach Bella’s second birthday in a couple of weeks I’ve noticed that I’m being asked more and more if and when there will be a Baby Lee number 2. Most of the ladies I went to post natal group with have gone onto have another baby or they are currently expecting. My social media timelines are FULL of pregnancy and birth announcements. Ohhh and my older sister is heavily pregnant and about to pop my niece out any day now. It’s safe to say I’m feeling pretty damn brooooooody.
I have babies on my mind. Which if I’m completely honest, I’m finding quite difficult. Because now just isn’t the right time for us to have another baby. We have a plan for that, which my husband so kindly keeps reminding me every time I tell him about another pregnancy announcement, or whenever I half heartedly say ‘shall we have another baby?’. He is definitely in no rush 😉
I desperately hope that when we do decide it’s the right time to expand our little family, that we will be blessed enough to be able to give Bella a sibling. I know she would be an amazing big sister and the thought of it gives me a lump in my throat whenever I think about it. We fell pregnant very quickly with Bella and I know just how lucky we were because it’s not always that easy.
I can’t wait to hopefully one day be pregnant again, I vow next time to make sure I cherish every single moment of it (maybe excluding the 12 weeks of awful morning sickness aka ALL DAY vomiting nausea) and not to wish those precious 9 months away. I hope to document my pregnancy better, to take better bump snaps, to record how I’m feeling so I can look back on it in years to come. Call me crazy but I also can’t wait to experience labour and childbirth again, it’s such an emotional and amazing albeit seriously bloody painful experience and I hope that I am lucky enough to do it all again one day.
But for now I need to get my sister bouncing on that bloody ball and drag her out for a brisk walk like my lovely sister in law did for me to get that baby of hers ready to make it’s exit. Being their birthing partner and then plenty of newborn snuggles with my brand new niece will tame my baby fever for now I’m sure 😉
Here’s a few of my favourite snaps of Bella as a newborn! <3
