Well This Is New

You read about it everywhere but nothing quite prepares you for it. I certainly didn’t expect it to be like that! My mucus plug dislodged today. Exciting. Ok – I know potentially this means I could still have weeks left. But it’s progress right? That things are happening the right way. It was gross. Completely and utterly gross. I didn’t …

Where’s The Logic In That?

I changed midwife half way through this pregnancy back to who I had when pregnant with P1. She was great! And recently they’ve moved where they hold their appointments. It’s less than convenient! Who’s great idea was it to make pregnant women walk down a huge hill to the back of a school?! A man’s idea probably (no offence to …

Cigarettes And Children

“Why is the moon in the sky mummy?” “What is a volcano?” “What’s the London Eye?” “Where does God live?” They are just a few of the questions my 4 year old has asked recently. All I can give a pretty honest answer and explanation about. But then, the other week whilst in the car P1 asked “What’s that?” “What’s …

Shrinkles – Review 2

My mum bought P1 something I’ve never heard of: Shrinkles for £8.49 yesterday. P1 spotted the bag within seconds of my mum walking through the door. Beady eyes.   It’s basically special plastic paper that shrinks in the oven. P1 loves colouring so she was very excited to get started. You colour, you cut out, you put on foil, put …

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 …

Conquered You

I cannot believe it! I slept half decent last night. It was a huge struggle to actually fall asleep but I must of dozed off at around midnight. The next thing I know it’s 4am!!! I’ve slept for a solid four hours – yippeeeeee! I struggled to get back to sleep with really itchy skin – mainly my legs. But …

Serious Words Body

Right body. I need serious words with you. I do not need preparing for a newborn… I’ve been there done that. I do however need to sleep! For a couple of hours at a time would be nice!? I don’t want to be getting up every 15minutes to use the toilet. I don’t want to be sweating buckets and feeling …

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 …

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 …

From The Monster Within

I was P1-free today. This morning I was really looking forward to it but by midday everything was far too quiet and I was getting bored of watching episode after episode of CSI! I was so excited to have P1 home but when she arrived I got told she’s not been behaving too great at my Grandparents regarding meal times …
