38 Weeks Of Pregnancy

From about 4pm yesterday I felt like absolute poop – I felt really sick, hot, dizzy (not the room spinning type more the spacey type), my lower back was in agony, I kept getting shooting pains inside my lady bits and I kept having the urge to use the toilet. I text my mum to ask if she could come …

Salt Dough Creations (Painting Process)

After properly checking on our salt dough creations – I discovered they were a little spongey still! And because I promised P1 she could paint them today I’ve had to scramble about and cook some more quickly. I added more salt than before and placed a tray on the top on them to stop the air from rising inside. Seems …

Snore

I seem to be sleeping well – for a pregnant person – the past couple of nights. I went from one night waking every hour, the next night waking every 15 minutes, to the next night sleeping a solid 4 hours, and then last night I managed to sleep for about 5/6 hours straight. Do I feel fantastic and energised …

That Time Has Come To Say Goodnight

It’s that time on a Sunday – when I feel like the weekend has gone far too quick. When we’ve done so much but it feels like so little. When I know it’s soon approaching P1s bedtime. When I know it will soon be time for my OH and I to go to bed. Basically, when Sunday is over and …

Salt Dough Creations (Before Oven)

P1 has an obsession with playdoh at the moment and it really annoys me (playdoh not my daughters love for it) We tend to get all the pots out, make something and then leave it for too long and it gets all hard and needs to be chucked. It suddenly dawned on me to make salt dough! I did this …

Breast Is Best – Or Just Embarassing

I’ve chosen to breastfeed P2!! Believe it or not it wasn’t an easy decision for me. I had chosen to bottle feed P1 – but when she arrived early I knew I had to express my milk to give her the best start. Without a doubt breastfeeding has better health benefits than bottle feeding both for mum and baby. But …

Milestones – What’s normal?

I’ve previously mentioned about P1s joints and lower limbs. I thought I’d go into a little more detail about it. We all get excited about our children’s milestones. P1 was slower than average on reaching her milestones: Sat up at 10months. Crawled at 12months. First steps at 16months. However, she was saying her first words and speaking in sentences by …

No Hope

Another false hope and this one has left me even more anxious and frustrated. Last night I was experiencing a constant period pain in my lower tummy and back, which every ten or so minutes would intensify with tightenings that lasted 30seconds ish from 11:30pm until about 3am. I couldn’t sleep as every time I dozed off the pain would …

I’m A Junk Food Junkie

I actually ventured out of the house today. I know shocking.It was a bit last minute and I hadn’t even showered. But the offer of McDonalds from my Grandparents was far too tempting to miss. Even my nap that I was so longing to have – could wait! So I threw on some leggings which I have to admit are …

Technology + Children = ?!

So we stole borrowed my OHs iPad for half an hour today. It amazes me how accustomed my 4 year old is with technology. We love Apple products; my OH and I have iPhones, I have an Apple Mac and my OH has an iPad. I remember when searching for a birthday present on eBay (yes I know…) from P1 …

Quack Quack – Who Let The Duck In?

I’ve woken up with a waddle. I’ve gone the whole pregnancy being able to walk half fine – I’ve had hip discomfort which made my walking slightly elderly.

I’m Casually Munching Coins – Review 1

My body always seems to have a problem with iron. For as long as I can remember I’ve been anaemic. Add pregnancy to the mix and I have a problem. At first they gave me iron tablets to take. Anyone who takes iron tablets know that they don’t tend to play nice with your bowels. Gross! So they suggested taking …

Big Girl

This morning started a lot better than it ended yesterday! I tried to remind P1 that she’s a big girl now and should be helping Mummy not upsetting her. Together we made Daddy’s lunch and she also spread her own toast. Really hoping that the way we handled last night has made P1 realise that she cannot push our boundaries …
