36 Weeks Of Pregnancy

I’m 36 weeks pregnant today. pardon… 36. Weeks. Pregnant. Today. I really didn’t think I’d see the day. And to be honest I don’t think the health professionals did either. At 28 weeks pregnant I was given steroids to strengthen P2s lungs. I seriously thought at that point I’d only be pregnant for another month! But here I am with …

It sounds like a dinosaur or something! I have Group B Strep. Which is a bacteria infection that lives happily without causing any harm or symptoms in my lady bits. great! When I say it causes no harm I’d be lying. When labour starts and more importantly my waters break it could cause life threatening circumstances to me or P2. …

Resolutions or Goals?

It’s been 2013 for 11 days now and it occurred to me today that I hadn’t posted about my resolutions for 2013. Better late than never. Who’s already broken their resolutions?

Huggies – Why?!

About a month ago I received an email from Huggies about their stopping of nappies. I was a bit disappointed as I used to use Huggies Nappies for P1 and planned to do the same this time round. However, in this climate nothing is surprising anymore when it comes to businesses shutting down. Today I received an email saying they …

A Goal In My Life Reached

The roads around the hospital used to be free so everyone parked and walked from them… however they cottoned on to this and have now installed parking meters around the nearby roads. However the £4 marked me coming home. Yay! I think …

The time has come for me to remove my rings. I’m devastated! My fingers have increased in size but my midwife isn’t concerned. I am! Removing my rings is a huge concern to me. These symptoms never happened to me the first time round. Although I didn’t have any rings to remove back then and I didn’t come this far …
