Letter To My Princess 3 – 3 Years

To my Princess 3, We went a little over board with presents for your birthday this year. Turning three seems like such a big milestone for you. My last baby. Everybody got up really early to celebrate your birthday with you and watch you open all of your presents. You have really changed this past year. I feel like the baby …

Pregnancy Diaries – 38 Weeks #3

My 38 week pregnancy with P2 was quite different to this pregnancy. I had terribly itchy skin and was feeling quite ill. This week I’ve been feeling very uncomfortable, especially in the evenings. I’m getting frequent tightenings but only in the evening. It’s like my body is telling me to rest even though it’s pretty much all I have been …

What To Pack In Your Hospital Bag

My hospital bag’s been packed for a while now but a dream I had the other night left me trying to remember whether I’d packed a hat or a blanket for baby, or what I’d actually packed. So the bag was brought inside again so that I could sort, repack and take the opportunity to photograph the bits to create a post …

My Husband’s Take On Childbirth

This evening I laughed so much it hurt I laughed until I cried. I laughed so much I couldn’t breathe. It was my hubby’s fault. We were having one of our many discussions about labour and this time reminiscing on P2s birth. For me, it all went by in a bit of a blur but for hubby it’s clearly imprinted …

Pregnancy Diaries – 37 Weeks #3

I’m classed as term officially. There’s still three more weeks until my due date but knowing that I’m actually term makes me feel a little more relaxed. I’m in agony today. I’m not sleeping thanks to P2, who seems to think from 1-4am is the time to be completely unsettled and I’m up every 15-30minutes resettling her. It’s exhausting. Plus …

Pregnancy Diaries – 36 Weeks #3

I seem to have lost 1.7kg in the past week?! Not quite sure how as I’ve been eating what feels like non-stop. My appetite is ridiculous. This week I have actually been feeling a bit better in myself with regards to preparation things, but my body isn’t feeling any better. Today in particular I’ve been feeling a lot of pressure …

Pregnancy Diaries – 35 Weeks #3

I’m feeling big now. Really big and really heavy. Everything seems to be pulling downwards. I get a lot of pressure and discomfort in my lower bump which the midwife said is due to the fact P3 has been snuggled low in my pelvis pretty much the whole time, especially now. I’ve managed to pack the girls bags now and …

20/31: The Best Thing To Happen To Me In 2014

I can’t believe it’s day 20 of August already!! This year seems to be zooming past. 2014 has been a pretty stressful year for my family but we’re still standing strong. The best thing that’s happened so far this year hasn’t exactly happened yet. The birth of our third and finally baby, our third daughter. So I’ll have to use …

Pregnancy Diaries – 31 Weeks #3

My energy levels have stooped. I’m so exhausted this week I’ve been going to bed quite quickly after the girls. Despite this though I’ve had motivation appear from nowhere to sort the kitchen cupboards and even walk to Tesco to grab a few bits and bobs here and there. I’m going to blame my pregnancy on this next thing I’ve …

Pregnancy Diaries – 30 Weeks #3

Somebody asked me yesterday how far gone I was and I was quite shocked when I realised that I was 30 weeks tomorrow. How crazy is that?! I’m thirty weeks out of 40. There’s only ten more weeks to go!!!! I feel a bit relieved if I’m honest. It’s a little naive of me really but I feel more positive …

Pregnancy Diaries – 29 Weeks #3

This week has seen us attending two maternity appointments. The first was down at the hospital with the consultant who’s been watching over me. I’m technically classed as a high risk pregnancy again for preterm labour so they’ve wanted to keep an eye on things, however, on Monday they decided to “discharge” me from their care. On the same day …

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 – 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 …
