I have a niece!!

My sister in law gave birth last night to a little girl who they have named Rebecca. She already has a son who was born 2 weeks before my Ollie, he is called Conor. Ollie now has 2 cousins, a girl and boy. It's very exciting for him, but of course he is too young to realise how exciting it is.

I had a cry last night. I am so so happy for them, and so pleased its a girl, but at the same time I am hurting a lot right now too... because I won't be getting my baby.

I'm sure I will be fine. We are going to visit them on Saturday and I have asked her if it is ok that just James, Ollie and I come on our own (she has a ton of friends) and she just texted back to say she totally understands and of course that would be ok. I don't want to start crying in front of her friends... but I might not cry at all. I just think it's nice she understands it is going to be hard for me meeting little Rebecca.

I have to go to the Drs on Monday for blood tests to make sure all my levels are up (iron etc).


  1. Congratulations to you and your family! So wonderful that he has two little cousins to play with. My girls have one, but we rarely see him because we don't live very close, unfortunately. I hope you are able to enjoy your meeting with her, I'm sure it would be difficult.

  2. Congrats to you and your family. I know how the joy also brings saddness, I have been there. Luckily all those around you will also understand.

  3. Congrats! Hoping that the visit goes fine. I'm sure once you hold your niece it will be all joy and no tears.
    I'm not pregnant yet so maybe if you start trying again and God is finally nice to me we can be Team Preggers together.
    I'm still keeping you in my prayers.

  4. How exciting for your family. I just became an auntie to a little girl as well and I'm thrilled to have a little princess to spoil!
    There is no harm in feeling a little down. I'm sorry this brought out some sad feelings, but it is okay. Everything is okay!

  5. congrats! Franticmommy (a.k.a Rebecca Lynn) thinks they picked a FABULOUS name! :)
    Love your new header too!
