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 …

“I saw a bond there for the first time, that unbreakable sisters bond”

Today, hubby decided to treat the girls to a trip out. Originally it was planned that we’d head to the Riverhill Himalayan Gardens to visit the Yeti. P1 was very excited and although her behaviour has been atrocious lately, I was quite looking forward to the day out. I’d packed a picnic too! A last minute check of the website …

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.

Pregnancy Diaries – 24 Weeks #3

This week has certainly seen several changes in my body. I’ve experienced the deterioration of my poor hips. Nothing seems to relieve them now but I’m determined to push forward. It’s my last pregnancy and I will not let pain ruin it. Pffftttt. Sofa bound I am in the day. According to those around me I am noticeably pregnant now. …

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 …

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, …

Letter To My Nan – 9 Months

Hi Nan, Thank you so much for leaving me your locket. I have many memories of you laying in bed showing me the empty pictures when I used to stay the night at yours. I have no words to describe how much it means to me to have the locket. I could really do with some Nan advice recently. P1 …

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 …
