Blimey, it’s been an awfully long time since I’ve blogged. I have had an excuse though, as I’ve been growing two little humans…
I announced the pregnancy on Instagram last week and was completely floored by the hundreds of lovely comments and messages, especially from twin mums who have completely dazzled me by their willingness to offer advice and encouragement to a complete stranger. I’ve learnt more in the last few days than I had in the whole of the first trimester and hearing from others has given me such a boost. I’m feeling more confident than ever. (But ya know, also still a bit terrified because TWINS.)
I really wanted to wait until the twenty week scan before shouting about my pregnancy, I’m 15 and a bit weeks now, but as you can probably tell from the pics it has been getting harder and harder to hide. Plus I haven’t been well enough to work for months and I was getting increasingly paranoid that every PR and agency I’ve ever dealt with was about to write me off as the flakiest flake around. (Which wouldn’t have been that untrue to be fair, WHAT is the deal with pregnancy lizard skin?!). So rest assured I hadn’t just decided to give up on blogging/vlogging/existing altogether, there’s just been a lot going on…in the best possible way.
I said it on Instagram but I’ll say it again: I really can’t believe I’m going to meet a tiny human who is half me and half Stephen, let alone two tiny humans. It’s just mad, isn’t it? I mean I know that’s what babies are – a mix of their parents – but I’m so excited to meet them and get to know them. I’ve got a real feeling that they’re going to be proper rascals.
If all goes smoothly, please god, they’ll be joining us in mid October. We don’t know the genders yet and we’re not sure if we will find out (I think we will, if only because you have so many scans with twins that resisting will feel nigh on impossible) but I certainly have my suspicions!
Thank you again for all the lovely messages, they’ve truly meant a lot.
