Confession time. Until recently I had no idea who Sophia Cachia was. I mean, I’d heard her name here and there but I’d never really taken the time to stalk her social media. But now, I basically want to invite her around for a wine (except you know, she’s pregnant) and proposition her to be my new bestie (Sorry, Kelly).
Sophie, AKA, The Young Mummy, is real, there’s no denying it and she’s proved it once again in a new video she has uploaded to her new YouTube channel. In it, she reflects over the first trimester of her pregnancy, detailing the excitement but also being realistic about her fears, her concerns and the differences she’s experienced second time around.
Sophie starts off by saying that she’s recently had her 12-week scan and reports that everything is “100% perfect” and she goes on to say that the news comes as a huge relief. Not that she thought anything was wrong with the baby, but this pregnancy, she says that she had experienced a different kind of worry. In fact, she says that at some points she was “petrified”. Sophie explains that she is so much more nervous with this baby than she was with her first son and says that perhaps it’s down to being younger and more carefree during her first pregnancy. She says that in some ways, this is why she chose to announce her pregnancy early, just so she could share what she was feeling with people around her.

I think second time mums can appreciate what she's saying. You're more aware of what can go wrong, but you're also most aware of what's to come. Sophie says that she struggled with her son as a newborn and yeah, tiny ones are not for everyone. Her honesty continues when she says she experienced anxiety and was hyperventilating at the idea of another baby but "the love grows the worry" she said, explaining that her concern was more for her child than herself.
"As they get bigger, doors open up for more things to go wrong. I worry sick about Bobby and now I'm going to have that times two. How will I manage to worry about two people?" she wonders.
