I'm 16 weeks now and starting to feel a little better! As I write this it will have been a week since I've been sick (crosses fingers) although I'm still getting queazy moments the majority of my day is sickness free and I can't tell you enough how great that feels! I never want to be complacent about a day not spent feeling ill again.

I've still not hit that second trimester wonderful feeling yet though as I'm still completely exhausted for 90% of the day but I hopeful this will arrive soon. I'm trying to compare symptoms to my previous pregnancy with Wilf and the only noticeable difference I can pin point is milder sickness and feeling hungry ALL THE TIME. In fact I'm almost always ravenous which is probably why I already have a pretty sizeable bump.

I had no idea if Wilf was a boy or a girl although lots of people seemed to think (correctly) I was carrying a boy. This time I've felt pretty much the same although the past few days I've been feeling like it *might* be a girl. Clearly it's just a 50/50 guess and we'll be finding out in a month anyway which I'm really excited about. I totally understand why people would want to keep the gender a surprise but for me I've always felt it's helped me visualise the baby a lot easier. When we knew Wilf was a boy I was able to imagine who I was talking to. Tom and I were both 100% sure we wanted to use the name Wilf so it was nice to be able to give him a name and connect with him like that whilst he was still in my tummy.

I bought my first item for the new baby a few days ago which was such a lovely feeling. We have so much stuff from the first time round we won't really need to get much but it's always fun to pick up a few cute pieces here and there. You can follow along on IG if you fancy seeing what I bought. I actually thought I might be brave and attempt a 'baby haul' video, what do you think? I'm not quite sure speaking on camera it's quite me (last time I did Tom said I sounded drunk..I wasn't!) but I might give it a go!

I read somewhere that mothers can guess the baby's gender correctly over 70% of the time. The hospital here won't reveal the gender and I was too nervous to have a guess in case I got it wrong (and somehow offended the baby?!) but I always thought of the baby as, "Matilda... or... um... yeah, maybe whatever boy's name we end up going for..." We never did settle on a boy's name; it somehow didn't feel necessary...

oh I love that you said that! It does feel like that doesn't it! I almost didn't write it as I thought if its a boy will people think I wanted a girl because I felt like I might be having one? So silly of course! I hope they can tell as the scan as I'm bursting to know! x

You look gorgeous! I didn't know you were expecting again - congrats! Xx

You're looking as stylish as ever and I'm so glad you're feeling better. It's only when you start feeling well again that you realise how long you've felt unwell (if that makes sense). Can't wait for more Tigerlilly Quinn baby news when you have it! xx
