Well, I never thought I’d be doing this again, but here we are, almost at the end of the first trimester of our fourth, and final, pregnancy.
If you read my blog regularly (and, thanks to this little bean making me feel like absolute shite, there hasn’t been many posts this year at all!), you will probably know that last October, we found out I was unexpectedly pregnant with baby number four.
