Hi, I’m Lesley Graham. I’m really excited to be blogging for my friends over at Pregnancy & Newborn magazine. This is my second time working with these lovely people (I wrote a “Haute Mama” column back in 2009) and I’m happy to be back with “Knocked Up.” It’s true, I am knocked up. My husband Sam and I are expecting our second little lady this November. We also have a beautiful daughter, Matilda, who is almost four.
We certainly took our time getting ready for baby number two. I wouldn’t call my first pregnancy easy. Although it was amazing and miraculous, my feet were the size of small animals and I worked on them 40 hours a week. I also gained a LOT of weight which led to more problems, hence scaring me off for a few years. I’ve been much more careful about what I eat this time (I hear this is common) but I’m still indulging a bit don’tyouworry.
We are thrilled to be expanding our little family, especially after I wasn’t convinced that another baby was in the cards for us. Matilda is pumped (you can see her reaction to the news here) and we’ve been working really hard to get their shared room ready. It’s definitely an adventure and I look forward to sharing it with all of you. Thanks so much for being a part of our journey. In the meantime, you can find me over at lesleywgraham.com. Please say hello!
