Serious Words Body

Right body. I need serious words with you. I do not need preparing for a newborn… I’ve been there done that. I do however need to sleep! For a couple of hours at a time would be nice!? I don’t want to be getting up every 15minutes to use the toilet. I don’t want to be sweating buckets and feeling …

Breast Is Best – Or Just Embarassing

I’ve chosen to breastfeed P2!! Believe it or not it wasn’t an easy decision for me. I had chosen to bottle feed P1 – but when she arrived early I knew I had to express my milk to give her the best start. Without a doubt breastfeeding has better health benefits than bottle feeding both for mum and baby. But …

Milestones – What’s normal?

I’ve previously mentioned about P1s joints and lower limbs. I thought I’d go into a little more detail about it. We all get excited about our children’s milestones. P1 was slower than average on reaching her milestones: Sat up at 10months. Crawled at 12months. First steps at 16months. However, she was saying her first words and speaking in sentences by …

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 …

Technology + Children = ?!

So we stole borrowed my OHs iPad for half an hour today. It amazes me how accustomed my 4 year old is with technology. We love Apple products; my OH and I have iPhones, I have an Apple Mac and my OH has an iPad. I remember when searching for a birthday present on eBay (yes I know…) from P1 …

Quack Quack – Who Let The Duck In?

I’ve woken up with a waddle. I’ve gone the whole pregnancy being able to walk half fine – I’ve had hip discomfort which made my walking slightly elderly. Today; I’m getting sharp pains every now and then inside my lady bits. I feel a lot heavier around there and generally just waddling like a duck. I’m really hoping this means …

I’m Casually Munching Coins – Review 1

My body always seems to have a problem with iron. For as long as I can remember I’ve been anaemic. Add pregnancy to the mix and I have a problem. At first they gave me iron tablets to take. Anyone who takes iron tablets know that they don’t tend to play nice with your bowels. Gross! So they suggested taking …

Big Girl

This morning started a lot better than it ended yesterday! I tried to remind P1 that she’s a big girl now and should be helping Mummy not upsetting her. Together we made Daddy’s lunch and she also spread her own toast. Really hoping that the way we handled last night has made P1 realise that she cannot push our boundaries …

From The Monster Within

I was P1-free today. This morning I was really looking forward to it but by midday everything was far too quiet and I was getting bored of watching episode after episode of CSI! I was so excited to have P1 home but when she arrived I got told she’s not been behaving too great at my Grandparents regarding meal times …

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.
