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 …

Kiddicare Sleep Dairy Project – Part 2

During February I was asked to write a sleep diary for Kiddicare. Along with other mums/dads they wanted to study various baby’s sleep patterns. I really enjoyed seeing just how much sleep I got and how much P2 did too! At the time, P2 was having her pretty awful stage of sleep and it’s still not much better from then. …

Pregnancy Diaries – 18 Weeks #3

I think I’m ready to start sharing photos of my growing bump. I don’t feel like I have a bump when I look down at myself but after taking my second bump photo the whole of this pregnancy I’ve realised I do have a tiny one forming.My sickness is still there on occasional days, but I think I’m managing it …

Letter To My Nan – 8 Months

Hi Nan, I’ve been thinking about you a lot this month. Asking myself questions that will never be answered, like what your last thought was and whether you were in pain when you passed away. My other Grandad passed away. He’ll be up there with you somewhere and I hope you can share many stories from my childhood with him. …

Pregnancy Diaries – 17 Weeks #3

This pregnancy seems to be flying by. People ask me how many weeks I am and I actually have to really think about it. I don’t feel as connected with my body as I did with the girls, it’s very strange. We have plenty to be excited about but I think my worries are overwhelming that excitement at the moment. …

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!! …

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 …

“By 10pm her temp had rocketed to between 40-41.4c”

We’re half way through the first week of school Easter holidays. Just before they started I said I was determined to do stuff because last time we were all sick and I was even more focused on keeping everyone healthy. Well, so far, Monday we went to an ante-natal clinic which can’t have been much fun for the girls. Tuesday, …

To My Princess 2 – 1 Year 2 Months

This month we told you about your new baby sibling, not that you understand us! For the past year I’ve been cherishing every single moment of you growing up, …

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’ve entered that world now”

So I’ve entered that world now… The world of questions and people you don’t normally speak to expecting answers and you have to answer otherwise it’s rude! Yeah… That world. It’s been just one day, actually less than that, since I announced to the world that we are having baby number three! It’s a little daunting when people say “you’re …
