Oh Go On Then… Jump Into Bed With Me

What would you do for a decent nights sleep? I finally got P1 home from hospital when she was 27days old. The first week of having her home was a nightmare – she was constantly sick, constantly crying and generally not well. By this point my milk had unfortunately dried up so she was being formula fed and the hospital …

Honesty – The Best Policy

Honesty is the best policy… I don’t cope very well in the evenings if I haven’t napped at least once during the day. To top it off I’m having more energy during the day and struggle to fall asleep for the nap I need to carry me through the evenings! Last night was another bad night – not entirely P2s …

First Day On The Outside

I forgot that even though you have your beautiful baby finally in your arms – that doesn’t mean the pain and discomfort is over. Oh no.

I’ve made it into February… Pregnant! That was not on the cards. I’ve also made it into February with very little sleep and a completely scratched up, sore belly. Soo attractive!

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 …

No Hope

Another false hope and this one has left me even more anxious and frustrated. Last night I was experiencing a constant period pain in my lower tummy and back, which every ten or so minutes would intensify with tightenings that lasted 30seconds ish from 11:30pm until about 3am. I couldn’t sleep as every time I dozed off the pain would …

I’m A Junk Food Junkie

I actually ventured out of the house today. I know shocking.It was a bit last minute and I hadn’t even showered. But the offer of McDonalds from my Grandparents was far too tempting to miss. Even my nap that I was so longing to have – could wait! So I threw on some leggings which I have to admit are …

How Much Is Too Much?

My little family (OH & P1) have had to move back to my parents house. Our landlord wanted to move back into the house we rented so we were forced to either find somewhere else or move to my parents. We chose my parents as the thought of having to rent and have this situation happen again was just too …
