Well This Is New

You read about it everywhere but nothing quite prepares you for it. I certainly didn’t expect it to be like that! My mucus plug dislodged today. Exciting. Ok – I know potentially this means I could still have weeks left. But it’s progress right? That things are happening the right way. It was gross. Completely and utterly gross. I didn’t …

Where’s The Logic In That?

I changed midwife half way through this pregnancy back to who I had when pregnant with P1. She was great! And recently they’ve moved where they hold their appointments. It’s less than convenient! Who’s great idea was it to make pregnant women walk down a huge hill to the back of a school?! A man’s idea probably (no offence to …

Really? Again?

From 11:30pm I was experiencing really bad pains. Worse than those that put me in the hospital earlier this month! I ended up crying my eyes out because they were so painful but I didn’t want to go up the hospital to have the same thing happen again… nothing! My OH and I eventually made the decision to go up …

Cigarettes And Children

“Why is the moon in the sky mummy?” “What is a volcano?” “What’s the London Eye?” “Where does God live?” They are just a few of the questions my 4 year old has asked recently. All I can give a pretty honest answer and explanation about. But then, the other week whilst in the car P1 asked “What’s that?” “What’s …

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 …

That Time Has Come To Say Goodnight

It’s that time on a Sunday – when I feel like the weekend has gone far too quick. When we’ve done so much but it feels like so little. When I know it’s soon approaching P1s bedtime. When I know it will soon be time for my OH and I to go to bed. Basically, when Sunday is over and …

Salt Dough Creations (Before Oven)

P1 has an obsession with playdoh at the moment and it really annoys me (playdoh not my daughters love for it) We tend to get all the pots out, make something and then leave it for too long and it gets all hard and needs to be chucked. It suddenly dawned on me to make salt dough! I did this …

Conquered You

I cannot believe it! I slept half decent last night. It was a huge struggle to actually fall asleep but I must of dozed off at around midnight. The next thing I know it’s 4am!!! I’ve slept for a solid four hours – yippeeeeee! I struggled to get back to sleep with really itchy skin – mainly my legs. But …

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 …

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 …
