round 2.

August 14, 2012


We just came home from a very lovely ultrasound. The one that tells us all the bits and pieces are there and working. Indeed a little bug is growing inside me!

I call him/her {yes, another surprise!} bug as it has been causing all sorts of aches in my tummy and beyond. I don't remember it being this hard when I was pregnant with Piper.

Then again I wasn't chasing a toddler...

Cue the first sleeping photo I have captured in a VERY, VERY LOOONNNGGGG time...

So the past few months have been all about survival! Sharing dry cereal with little miss in bed so as not to stand up too quickly every morning. Quiet cuddles on the sofa {which in reality usually end with a child climbing across my face as I wince}. Piper has also developed a habit of lifting the toilet lid and 'coughing' inside the bowl. They say imitation is the highest form...he he.

By all accounts she is ready to be a big sister, even showing her skills with a friend's wee one.




So all is very well indeed.

I am nervous and excited and calm and anxious all rolled into one. Mostly excited though.
I hope to spend more time around these parts as my energy increases.

Hope you are all well and sending much love your way.
♡ ashley

p.s. I don't have proof of life. I do have some bump snaps and scratchy black and white photos where a form is just showing to those who know where to look. Will share both soon!

  1. Congratulations! I don't know how far along you are but that first trimester was just misery for me... and then I suddenly felt great. Hoping the same for you. Sounds like you both are finding good ways to cope though in the mean time :)

  6. That is fantastic news Ash, infact the best I have heard in a while :) I did wonder after reading a comment on IG about you feeling seedy in the morning whether you were expecting but didn't want to put you on the spot.
    So happy for you lovely.

  10. Congratulations!!!!!! The WHOLE second pregnancy was pretty miserable for me. I was constantly exhausted and nauseas....however, totally worth it. Also, sleeping photo=ADORABLE. I am too scared to attempt it. Maybe I should. There will never be another right now.
