37 Weeks Of Pregnancy

I’m 37 weeks pregnant today! I don’t think I can put in words how amazing this feels to me. It’s a huge milestone – one not many believed I’d see! Ok yes my pregnancy is not technically over until I’m 40 weeks or 41 when I get induced but if my P2 arrives now she’ll be classed as full term. …

Sisterly Love

Been having weird pains tonight. I refuse to go into hospital until I know I’m in labour… how the heck do I know that?! I’m just so fed up of going there and being turned away. P1 loves her sister already. We have tried to warn her what a newborn baby is like but she doesn’t seem to be bothered.

Creative Baking

First things first. I’ve had a rubbish night sleep. One of those sleeps where you keep waking up and every time you wake up you can’t get back to sleep for at least half an hour! I feel exhausted before the day has even begun. Nursery is closed. Like I said in my snow post – the whole area halts. …

That Have To Snow Post

Snow can be so pretty. It causes complete traffic disaster and the whole area tends to come to a halt – but it’s so beautiful. This weekend has included a trip to Kent to visit my OHs mum. As P1 really wanted to play in the snow and all we’ve had here was a light dusting of it. The kids …

Gifts

For Christmas my OH told me that his present to me would be taking me clothes shopping once P2 is here and I’m back to my pre-pregnancy body. My Nan is also doing the same. Anyone who knows me knows I hate shopping. Let alone clothes shopping. I’ve had the same clothes for the past… Well to be honest some …

Meow

My mum used to foster cats. With over 15 years experience with animals from working as a veterinary nurse the fostering charity liked to use mum for all the “odd” cases or the kittens. I remember at one time we had two litters that totalled to about 14 kittens plus mum. Our house was a cat haven! Mum being Mum …

When Facebook Never Ceases To Surprise

Touchy subject. Upsetting. Disgusting. Disgraceful. Do I really need to go on? Any parent – well any person – would agree with me that there is absolutely no excuse for child abuse. I was a victim of child abuse at just 10 days old by my real dad. This caused my family huge heart ache and long battles with social services. …

Appreciation

“It’s so lucky you are having another girl. Means you can reuse all of P1s things” – eeeeerrrrrmmm unfortunately not. Back when I had P1 and my relationship broke down with her dad I needed all the extra income I could scrape together. It wasn’t that I was stuck for money as I was working by then. It was more …

36 Weeks Of Pregnancy

I’m 36 weeks pregnant today. pardon… 36. Weeks. Pregnant. Today. I really didn’t think I’d see the day. And to be honest I don’t think the health professionals did either. At 28 weeks pregnant I was given steroids to strengthen P2s lungs. I seriously thought at that point I’d only be pregnant for another month! But here I am with …

In Laws

In laws – I bet you just took a gulp. Say those words to me 4 years ago and I would of been joining you with the gulping and eye rolling. However, since meeting my OH the eye rolling and gulping are a thing of the past. I feel so lucky to have been welcomed so warmly into my OHs …

Sunday Morning

I love weekends. Spending time with my OH. It makes me realise how much I actually miss him during the week. He also makes loads of effort to play with P1 at the weekends – I think he must miss us just as much. Sundays always means a lay in. I should be going to church and I will!! but …

Bad Dreams And A 4 Year Old

Ever had a dream that’s really scared you? Wakes you up in a sweat and you don’t know what to do with yourself incase the dream comes true. I’ve had many!! We were just settling down to bed at nearly midnight. When I thought I heard the pitter patter of footsteps. Footsteps too light to be my brother but too …

TGIF

Thank Goodness It’s Friday What does Friday mean in your household?! Maybe you are just heading into work looking forward to getting all dressed up and going out for the night. Crawling/stumbling back home at some point tomorrow morning. Well for me; Friday is the day P1 stays at home with me. Mummy and Daughter Day – as she calls …

Sausage Fingers

The time has come for me to remove my rings. I’m devastated! My fingers have increased in size but my midwife isn’t concerned. I am! Removing my rings is a huge concern to me. These symptoms never happened to me the first time round. Although I didn’t have any rings to remove back then and I didn’t come this far …
