Pregnancy, me and we're having a.....

It feels like the right time for me to open up more and start discussing my pregnancy aside from the mention of a growing belly that I'm trying to style around in My Wednesday Style Collective Posts.

These two wee monkeys of ours will be having another baby boy monkey to join their long list of hilarious antics. We are thrilled and ever so excited, boy or girl we would feel the same way we are just thrilled to be blessed with one last addition to our family.

My Vintage Childhood: Pregnancy, me and we're having a.....

Pregnancy, me and we're having a.....

It feels like the right time for me to open up more and start discussing my pregnancy aside from the mention of a growing belly that I'm trying to style around in My Wednesday Style Collective Posts.


Things that are happening and I'm feeling.....

  • I didn't realise that I have friends in circles who didn't realise I was pregnant, so I've recently given a few people a surprise when I've turned around. Because looking at me from the back you wouldn't know I'm pregnant. So that's been rather entertaining to see people's reactions, and the questions are now coming - will this will be our last? Six pregnancy in six years, losses, blessings, breastfeeding peppering all that time.......yeah I'd say we're done this is our last.


  • I'm twenty-six weeks baby is kicking up a storm. My mind and heart is in go, go, go mode and I want to do everything that's spinning around in my head. But my body is starting to say slow down, with all the aches and pains I'm having. My mind is having a hard time dealing with slow down mode because I'm a busy bee. I guess a restructure of activities should be in order. Perhaps some more time on my sitting bottom sorting out my online store could be a start. Hence this latest change and the reason for my absence on the blog some days with my regular posts.


  • But how am I doing? The big question that's asked of me with each pregnancy with that tone, that means, people want to know how I'm handling things emotional with my PTSD. The answer is I'm travelling well, I've had some difficult moments and this month is always a hard one. May 25th each year marks Elle and Meg's memorial it will be five years this year, so it's always hard and especially if I'm pregnant too. Thankfully I will be busy this Saturday the 25th catching up with some blogging buddies. But overall I'm good, as good as one can be but triggers will continue to be managed and I should be fine.


  • Have I started to get things ready? Ummm well, not directly for the baby. The big changes that affect Cohen and Sarah have been happening like moving them into one room together to share a bunk bed. Even though this bub will be rooming in with us for six months to a year, we're giving our monkeys time to transitions rather then it all happen when the baby is here. When it comes to babies I don't believe you need a lot to care for baby, in fact I'm in the midst of giving stuff away that really isn't necessary in my view to care for baby.


  • Finally the question, do you know what you're having? Yes, yes, we do it and I'm surprised I've taken this long to share it all with you.


These two wee monkeys of ours will be having another baby boy monkey to join their long list of hilarious antics. We are thrilled and ever so excited, boy or girl we would feel the same way we are just thrilled to be blessed with one last addition to our family.

Oh Trudie, I'm so glad you're doing so well, but what a journey you've had so far...I'm full of admiration for your openness and honesty. I'm glad that you have nice plans for the 25th, I'll be thinking of you. Take it as easy as you can, that baby boy monkey will tire you out enough when he arrives, get as much rest as you can while you can! Love, Rachel xx

Ahh a little boy! Cute :) I have a feeling I am carrying a boy too, time will tell. You've been on a roller-coaster of a journey Trudie x

Yay exciting! I know what all those aches and pains feel like - take it easy! Yeah right! I know that's impossible when you have little people to look after!)

You're looking great, and doing so well.. Best wishes from over here!

Yay! Trudie, I can't express enough just how happy I am for you! I'm sure that slowing down isn't easy with two other little ones to care for, but do your best and remember there is lots you can do while sitting down as far as blogging and business go! I still am amping to meet you in person! Perhaps I could come and visit and we can sit on our bottoms and have a little chat sometime? xx

Thank you Rachel for your sweet words. A journey for sure, but being open about does help, it's all so often a taboo and makes people feel weird. I'm looking forward to my plans on the 25th it will be a nice distraction and a supportive one at that too.

Cheeky little, non stops boys Renee I love them. My mind needs to catch up to the body. I need to find that balance between being busy and resting. Keeping busy and focused helps with the PTSD.

Yep another little mister he he he. I look forward to hearing what you have Erica and seeing what wardrobe creations you keep coming up with as well.

Yeah right, like you said lol. The knees, ankles, legs are letting me know they mean business at the moment. Thankfully each morning my body feels pretty good, but I'm running out of steam later in the day and falling asleep by 7.30pm

Thank you sweetie. I'm definitely going to have to shift gears soon. But you're right there are grand plans that deserve my attention if I stop long enough to land my bottom in a seat. Of course I'd love for you to visit you're most welcomed too. X

Good to know you are managing your pregnancy and all that it entails, Trudie. It's not easy feeling tired and ache-y with 2 other small children to care for, I remember it well! And it's a boy! So exciting! xxx

Awww bless your heart my sweet friend, thank you. X

Thanks lovely. I'll find the new balance soon I'm sure. But yes it's a boy and we're thrilled.

I'm glad you're doing well, Trudie. Can't wait to meet the second Master V! xxx

Thanks Vix. I had to laugh when you said the "second Master V" they broke the mould when they created that child of mine. Two of them will make my life especially interesting and unique.

I am so glad things are going well with this pregnancy. Can't wait for our road trip on Saturday - I am sure we will all be able to keep you occupied for a few hours on Saturday.
Love, hugs and positive energy !
