Welcome To The World Princess #2

Welcome to the world Princess #2!!!! Born at 9:15am on the 6th February 2013. Weighing 7lb and 7oz. Apparently, my labour and birth couldn’t have gone any more perfect… I suddenly woke up and ran to the toilet just in time for my waters to break at 3:15am. This was something I’d never experienced – it wasn’t a gush of …

39 Weeks Of Pregnancy

I’ve made it to 39 weeks pregnant. How?! I’m still completely and utterly shocked that my tiny 4foot 8inch body can carry the child of a 6foot man! To mark the last 7 official days of pregnancy I’m going to do a little blog survey: How far along are you? I am 39 weeks exactly. How big is Baby? According …

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 …

I’ll Totally Go Saw On Myself Soon

No miracle cure found. Yet. I’m starting to sound like a broken record. I’ve never been so uncomfortable in my whole life. Well my sleep totalled to 2hours last night – superb! As you can imagine it has left me feeling rather emotional. My OH was woken up at 8am this morning by P1 shouting “Mummy” because she couldn’t find …

Maybe A Cure

I realised that, despite the fact I feel like ripping my own skin off, I have a lot to be thankful for. So many people have troubles with starting their own family and here I am moaning and groaning about my pregnancy and the symptoms that come gracefully along with it. So many women would kill to experience this. So …

I Can’t Cope With This

I feel like I haven’t seen much of P1 this week. It does upset me because I feel like a failure as a parent but at the same time I’ve really needed the break to relax and take it easy. All the help this week has come from my Grandparents – nursery runs, the normal babysitting days AND they even …

Pinch Punch First Day Of The Month

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! (Blood test came back negative again for the liver condition!) I’ve slept about 2 hours tonight. It’s Friday – Friday is the only day of the week that I …

“How Did A Baby Buy That?”

I remember being quite excited and nervous about meeting my baby brother for the first time. I’d stayed round my grandparents whilst my mum and stepdad were up the hospital. When I got picked up by my ex-stepdad we went to a little florist to pick up, I think, a balloon and a rabbit soft toy for my little brother. …

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 …

38 Weeks Of Pregnancy

From about 4pm yesterday I felt like absolute poop – I felt really sick, hot, dizzy (not the room spinning type more the spacey type), my lower back was in agony, I kept getting shooting pains inside my lady bits and I kept having the urge to use the toilet. I text my mum to ask if she could come …

Salt Dough Creations (Painting Process)

After properly checking on our salt dough creations – I discovered they were a little spongey still! And because I promised P1 she could paint them today I’ve had to scramble about and cook some more quickly. I added more salt than before and placed a tray on the top on them to stop the air from rising inside. Seems …
