Thunder and Lightning Storm July 2014

I’ve been craving a holiday for a while. Not any holiday, a get-on-the-plane sunny beach holiday but I needn’t be upset really. The weather in England has been so beautiful already this summer but I haven’t been able to enjoy it. Pregnancy has certainly got the better of me in this heat. Not only have I outgrown anything that was …

Pregnancy Diaries – 28 Weeks #3

After a short spout of bad weather, the good weather is back and my golly isn’t it?! It’s been an average of 26c the past few days and it doesn’t look to be cooling down. This heat is dreadful and I can see why everyone moans about summer babies. Both my girls were born in winter months meaning I was …

Pregnancy Diaries – 27 Weeks #3

I was looking through my Facebook pictures today and comparing P2s bump to this one. I think I was bigger/rounder with P2 than P3. What do you think?? I’m not quite controlling my hip and back pain anymore. In fact I’m really struggling some days. It’s like a pain where you really need to click a bone but it just …

Royce Lingerie Spring Blossom Nursing Bra Review

As a woman you will be familiar with a brassiere, also known as a boulder holder, aka a bra! From that very first bra you buy that’s just a little bit of cotton fabric to give you some dignity at P.E changes during puberty, to ones that push your fully grown boobs up into your chin. The majority of us …

Pregnancy Diaries – 26 Weeks #3

Please don’t look for too long at the weight gain. I can’t! I’ve put on 3kg since becoming pregnant and that just seems like loads, however, I did do a bit of googling about healthy weight gain in pregnancy and it’s put my mind at rest. For a woman with a normal BMI they are expected to put on between …

Tommee Tippee – Best Of British Limited Edition Bottle Review

My hubby is known for researching and researching and researching before he makes any decisions. Whether it’s checking out the internet for a better deal on a tumble dryer he’s seen or learning how something works. When we found out we were pregnant with P2 I’d already decided alone that we’d be using Tommee Tippee bottles, but when hubby also …

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, …

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 …
