Hi all,
Have been following along but haven’t joined yet as I like to wait until 12 week ultrasound and once we have announced to family/friends.
Currently 13 weeks with bub number 3 and will be announcing hopefully on Mother’s Day... so would love to join the other space next week.
Look forward to getting to know you all and hope everyone has had a good week!
