My name is Lily-Sue, but my mummy calls me Munchkin (or 'Munch' for short!) I am 8 years old, and this is where my mummy will help me write all about all the fun things we do together. I hope you enjoy reading about the adventures of my mummy and me, Munchkin, with the occasional appearance from the siblings - Beastie and Plumlet.

Shocked ... Scared ... Excited ... Scared ...

Mummy's mixed emotions!

A couple of weeks ago, Munchkin made a special announcement on the blog. So the Munchkin Patch is expanding ... again ... as am I!!

Right now, none of it seems real!

I am almost 18 weeks now, and we are eagerly awaiting our 20 week scan which is scheduled for next month.

Munchkin is very excited. She has affectionately named her unborn sibling 'Baby Plum', after clinging onto the information we offered her one day that baby was around the size of a plum. This name has stuck!

Munch has also insisted that Baby Plum is a boy. This really surprised us, as we assumed that she would have her heart set on another girl. Apparently, she has no need for another sister. Beastie Boo is sufficient!

Whichever colour our growing bump is revealed to be next month, we are confident that (s)he will be showered with love by Munchkin, just as Beastie has been.

My emotions are all over the place!

At the 'positive test' stage ... 

I was shocked at the fact that our prevention methods had clearly failed us, meaning this was all happening considerably sooner than we had ever anticipated ... 

... I was extremely nervous about how The Man would react to my bombshell ...

... I was excited at the thought of being pregnant again ...

... I was terrified at the thought of being pregnant again ...

... I was anxious about what others would say. The judgements that would obviously be made. The negative attitudes that were inevitable ...

... I felt nauseous at the idea of my body not being physically ready to carry another little life so soon after Beastie's ordeal ...

... I was delighted at the thought of being a mummy to 3 - a beautiful addition to the lives of our gorgeous girls ...

And these are just the daily emotions that I encounter. There are so many different feelings swimming around in my head right now.

Above all else, I feel joy. I am excited and feel extremely lucky to be feeling every one of these emotions. Each one makes me stronger and more determined to do everything I can to provide the safest and happiest lives for our children. After undergoing surgery that carried a high risk of leaving me unable to have any more babies, I feel totally blessed to have this little life growing inside me.

They say everything happens for a reason ...

Our ultimate reason is happiness!
