Pregnancy Diaries – 25 Weeks #3

The pregnancy seems to have slowed down and not speeding past as quickly anymore. There’s still 15 weeks left!!! This week my bump seems to be bursting and I’m using Bio-Oil and Baby Oil as often as possible. My belly button is stretching and becoming itchy which is a little terrifying as I really do not want what happened last …

“The bedtime war starts”

The GroAnywhere black out blind has been placed on the window, the blind pulled down over the top and the lights are dim. P1 is going to the toilet, getting herself undressed and brushing her teeth whilst I change P2s bottom and get her ready for bed. P2 is handed her half bottle of milk to drink whilst we read …

My BritMums Live 2014 Experience

At 1:39pm hubby and I jumped on the train to London Bridge. I’d been in a bit of a panic that morning, stressing about the size of my bag and that I couldn’t fit everything in one. I was being quite selfish! There was hubby carrying a rather heavy rucksack whilst I complained of my aching feet, again all my …

Nabby Baby Monitor Review

As a parent, safety is very high on the list of priorities. Whether it’s preventing cuts and grazes, making sure they look before they cross the road and making sure they are safe in every environment. My biggest fear is when I’m not around and I have zero control over their safety. Night times to be precise. I wasn’t as …

Pregnancy Diaries – 23 Weeks #3

Well I’ve basically outgrown my normal clothes, including my black leggings which were part of my pregnancy wardrobe with P2! They’re just so tight and restricting. This heat is ridiculous, beautiful, but limiting when I get dressed in the mornings. I don’t want to buy any new things but need loose and light clothing or I end up feeling like …

Michelle Heaton Active Pregnancy DVD Review

Keeping fit and exercising has never been a top priority, in fact it’s never even been on the list of daily/weekly to dos! I do walking because I have to. I run around after the kids because I have to. I do house chores because I have to. You get the picture. Since being pregnant this time I’ve had reflection …

To My Princess 2 – 1 Year 4 Months

To my Princess 2, Last month I said we had been introduced to your tantrums. Well they are still going  very strong! You have really grown in your attitude when it comes to things you want or don’t like. You’ll throw yourself or scream. It’s really quite cute but we have begun to put a stop to it and introduced …

Pregnancy Diaries – 22 Weeks #3

Pregnancy seems to be agreeing with me at the moment. I haven’t felt sick in a long time and my tiredness is managed slightly by having short naps with P2 in the day time. My hips, however, are another story. I’m literally in agony if I do too much in one day. I cleaned the bathroom, a pretty small room, …

Bliss Buggy Push in Sevenoaks Chronicle Newspaper

After the school run this morning I immediately went to our local newsagent to grab myself a copy of the Sevenoaks Chronicle. There outside on a huge poster was the words “Mums’ Charity Buggy Push”. I huge rush of achievement fell over me. I feel so proud to have raised awareness for Bliss and to share our story. Here’s a …

How much milk should my child be having in a day?

Milk has always been a big part of P2s day. She uses it for thirst and she uses it to fall asleep. When we were having a bad bedtime she ended up drinking two full 9oz bottles and it led us to question exactly how much she should be having in a day. Hubby did lots of research on this …

Pregnancy Diaries – 21 Weeks #3 Gender Revelation

This morning we were back up the hospital for a rescan. This baby has been a right pickle trying to get scanned even today it didn’t fancy turning over to show us it’s beautiful face. Last week, it had curled up so tightly that the scanner couldn’t get the spine measurements or thoroughly check the heart. Anyway, this week was …

“That locket was very precious to my Nan”

On Wednesday my Grandad came over to Kent to spent the day with us. It was a lovely day and we visited the local nature trail too. When he arrived he gave me something, he said “here’s a little piece of Nan”. I knew what it was as he’d told me I’d be given it soon but I wasn’t quite …

Pregnancy Diaries – 20 Weeks #3

Wow. Half way!! Already. It’s all going a little quick. We know the gender, I’m hoping the suspense isn’t killing everyone who regularly follows. The baby was being very naughty and spent the whole of our scan curled up in a very tight ball – forehead to knees. We’ve got to be rescanned next week to get the last of …

Pregnancy Diaries – 19 Weeks #3

It’s really crazy to think that I’m nearly 5 months pregnant already and although I’m feeling fat, I don’t really feel pregnant as such. I felt the baby move last night and a few times today. It’s the weirdest feeling but has made this all so scarily real. I also heard it’s heart beat on Monday at my midwife appointment …
