We Are All Poorly

It all started on Wednesday. P3 had a restless night which is a little unusual for her but we headed off to playgroup blaming it on the new bottom tooth that was poking through. She was super clingy which is very unlike her and even the other mummies commented on it. She felt a little hot so I took her …

“The newborn crying, the demands of a sick child and a bored toddler”

We are being pulled in every direction this week. We have illness, crying, boredom, testing behaviour and exhaustion. P1 has been under the weather since Friday. She came home with a croaky voice but other than that she was fine. It progressed over the weekend into a temperature, sore throat, headache and a cough. She certainly wasn’t herself and spent …

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 …

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!! …

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 took a little break from blogging”

I took a little break from blogging this week, apart from the letter to my Nan and to P2. I hope you didn’t miss me too much but life has got a little busy and a little out of control. But I’m back!! Hello there. We’ve had a pretty boring Saturday. It sometimes makes me feel quite guilty for P1. …

Hospital Admittance – Again!

Following my perfect night sleep came a dreadful day. I was happy and motivated and began work on my business spreadsheets. A few minutes later I had little white dots which spread across my vision to prevent me from looking at things properly. This was an indication of my migraines I used to have when on the full contraceptive pill. …

Battling Body Perception

I have a friend. A beautiful friend. Yet she looks in the mirror and doesn’t see what everyone else sees. She’s fighting anorexia. Just like thousands of men and women all across the world. What causes someone to hate their own body that much… Bullying maybe? Magazines with their airbrushed models? The NHS says there’s 3 factors that contribute to …

That Must Have Mother’s Day Post

Happy Mother’s Day to everyone in the UK! Today hasn’t started off too well. We had a rough night with P2. We ended up phoning NHS Direct and getting an appointment for the Out of Hours clinic up the hospital. My OH and I have been dosed up on paracetamol for a good few days now but you can’t give …

I Think I’m Going LoopyLoo

The only thing keeping me sane at 2am in the morning whilst my throat is on fire, my OH is groaning in his sleep and P2 is quite clearly not well and using my nipple as a comforter and occasionally a milk dispenser is how bloody cute she looks in a white footless sleep suit. Now go to sleep baby!

Where Did That Come From?

When preparing for the arrival of our second daughter we bought everything we may need. I had visions to breastfeed for just a few weeks. So we bought all the equipment for bottle feeding – steriliser, bottles, express pump, dummies, milk powder dispenser etc etc. They are all sitting in the under-cot-storage-drawer. Gathering dust most likely. I haven’t expressed yet. …

Just Another Manic Monday

We had a road trip yesterday. It wasn’t that far away but I wasn’t about to be left in the house alone with P1 so close to my due date so we all went along for the ride. For about two months now my OH has been stealing borrowing my car. Which hasn’t been very ideal as I’ve relied a …
