Pregnancy Diaries – 15 Weeks #3

It seems a little surreal that I’m only 5 weeks away from being half way through my pregnancy!! I was looking back on my pregnancy photos with P2 and I had quite a clear “baby bump” by 16 weeks. Well right now I simply look like I’ve eaten too many cakes. There isn’t a hard baby bump appearing at all!! …

“My daughter is far stronger than I will ever be”

Children are amazing little creatures. The strength they have and the determination is incredible. I saw all of this inside my tiny 5 year old daughter when she went through her growth hormone test yesterday. We arrived at the hospital at 8:45am. My Grandad came to support whilst hubby had P2 for the day. P1 hadn’t asked for food or …

Funky Giraffe Bib Review

Typically, bibs are a must have accessory to weaning and feeding times. I personally rarely used them. I figured that kids will get messy and nothing can be so bad that our washing machine can’t handle – right?! With baby led weaning fully established and P2 being nearly 14 months old we’ve started to allow her to feed herself her …

“Both of us grew up with animals around us”

I’ve always had a love for animals. I’ve always respected them even if sometimes they didn’t respect me. As a child, my earliest memories, I’ve been surrounded by various animals. As a child, I grew up with a mum who’s career was a veterinary nurse. We actually lived attached to a veterinary clinic… When I say attached I mean part …

Pregnancy Diaries – 14 Weeks #3

I’m at that stage where I just look like I’ve been eating too much chocolate cake… Oh wait I have! I’m struggling to dress myself as I’ve always worn quite tight items of clothing. I feel fat and frumpy in anything I dare to wear. However, my boobies are slowly creeping towards my breastfeeding size so that’s a little bonus …

Extra Narrow Swing Shut Safety Gate from Tippitoes

I’ve very rarely used stairgates in P1s life span. The last time I used them was when I shared a house with one of my friends and her daughter. P1 has always understood, always been slow and careful when moving herself about especially up and down stairs. Then P2 came along, and we moved out. We actually moved before she …

Pregnancy Diaries – 12 – 13 Weeks #3

Apparently I’m entering the second trimester already! I’m supposed to start feeling more energised and less sick from now on… We’ll see… Week 12 saw a huge wave of exhaustion and dizziness. Hubby told me to enjoy this pregnancy as it will be my last but it’s very hard to enjoy it when you feel so darn rubbish!! I’ve literally …

“I’m pregnant with baby number 3!”

I’ve lost complete motivation in my blog the past two months and finally I can explain why. It’s been the fact I’ve been unable to speak about my life fully as we’ve had a secret to keep. That secret is rather scary, will change the dynamics of life as I know it. Deep breath in… We’re adding another member to …

Fisher-Price Feeding Range Review

P2 has always been a very independent eater and absolutely loves and embraces her food. As you all know, I’m a huge fan of Fisher-Price and was rather excited when they told me about their new feeding range being launched on 24th March! We’ve been putting some of the range to test. The Learn-to-Hold spoons are brilliant!! They feature bending …

“I’m annoyed with both soaps for exactly the same reason!! The way they portray teenage/young mums”

I watch Hollyoaks and EastEnders religiously – thank goodness for Sky+!! I tend to get really emotional about certain storylines. I’ve posted my anger towards Hollyoaks’ teenage pregnancy storyline before, the Sinead one. I was actually quite pleased that she didn’t get the baby adopted blah blah. Anyway, I’m annoyed with both soaps for exactly the same reason!! The way …
