Pregnancy Diaries – 14 Weeks #3

I’m at that stage where I just look like I’ve been eating too much chocolate cake… Oh wait I have! I’m struggling to dress myself as I’ve always worn quite tight items of clothing. I feel fat and frumpy in anything I dare to wear. However, my boobies are slowly creeping towards my breastfeeding size so that’s a little bonus …

“By 10pm her temp had rocketed to between 40-41.4c”

We’re half way through the first week of school Easter holidays. Just before they started I said I was determined to do stuff because last time we were all sick and I was even more focused on keeping everyone healthy. Well, so far, Monday we went to an ante-natal clinic which can’t have been much fun for the girls. Tuesday, …

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 …

Letter To My Nan – 7 Months

Hi Nan, I have some pretty big news for you. We are having another baby! I can imagine you rolling your eyes and saying “I thought you might be”. You knew with P2. I’m a little upset about things though, the thought of you never meeting this baby and not having you come visit me in the hospital just hours …

“I’ve entered that world now”

So I’ve entered that world now… The world of questions and people you don’t normally speak to expecting answers and you have to answer otherwise it’s rude! Yeah… That world. It’s been just one day, actually less than that, since I announced to the world that we are having baby number three! It’s a little daunting when people say “you’re …

“I’m pregnant with baby number 3!”

I’ve lost complete motivation in my blog the past two months and finally I can explain why. It’s been the fact I’ve been unable to speak about my life fully as we’ve had a secret to keep. That secret is rather scary, will change the dynamics of life as I know it. Deep breath in… We’re adding another member to …

To My Princess 1 – 5 Years 3 Months

Dear Princess 1, Since starting your new school I’ve seen you blossom! You’re happier and brighter. I think your behaviour has certainly improved. You’re learning new and rather intelligent words to add to your already extended vocabulary and have made a few close friends. I’ve been very proud of your eating recently too. It isn’t so much of a fuss …

“I’m annoyed with both soaps for exactly the same reason!! The way they portray teenage/young mums”

I watch Hollyoaks and EastEnders religiously – thank goodness for Sky+!! I tend to get really emotional about certain storylines. I’ve posted my anger towards Hollyoaks’ teenage pregnancy storyline before, the Sinead one. I was actually quite pleased that she didn’t get the baby adopted blah blah. Anyway, I’m annoyed with both soaps for exactly the same reason!! The way …

“I was a new mum to a premature baby at just the age of 16”

When I was pregnant with P1 I was expecting to have her in February 2009. She had other plans. Eager to meet her family and be introduced into the very scary world, P1 arrived in December 2008 just in time for Christmas, Christmas Eve! She weighed 4lbs 13oz which was a really good weight considering she was nearly two months …

We’ve had a little holiday to CenterParcs Longleat and it was certainly needed. I managed to pack clothes for all four of us into one large suitcase plus a little suitcase for random bits and toiletries.

“Playing amongst the spring daffodils”

Tantrums are a common situation that we deal with in our household. Whether it’s a 5 year old argument with back chatting and stomping or a 13 month old screaming with her head on the floor between her legs. A day without tantrums would be a day where you check to see if the girls are poorly. We seemed to …

“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. …
