Which Gender?
When I was pregnant with Mads and LL, there was no doubt in our minds that we wanted to find out the sex of our baby at the twenty week scan. While I completely understand the reason why people wait until their baby is born, I am terrible at waiting for surprises and I was just desperate to know....

The First Trimester
The first trimester of pregnancy is a funny old time. You are hit with the biggest shock and excitement of your life when you see those faint two lines appear on a pregnancy test, yet a lot of the time you don't tell anyone until weeks after. It is the biggest secret and you want to shout it from...

Finding out I am Pregnant, having a third baby and our dating scan
I feel like my blog has been seriously neglected the last few weeks but I just haven't felt like writing much at all, let alone picking up the camera and taking photos like I normally do. I think it is pretty natural in early pregnancy, most people (myself included) use their blogs as a day to day diary but...

Our (Little) Exciting News
Life is often about numbers. Eleven years ago I became friends with my manager in the bar I worked at part time while I was at university in Leeds. Ten and a half years ago we moved in together just as good friends in a little flat by the river. Just over ten years ago we had our first kiss...

Goodbye Bump…Hello Baby.

Welcome To The World…
  She's here! Our beautiful little lady arrived on Monday by c-section. It all went well, and I will no doubt write my birth story shortly. Our two girls met on Tuesday, and Mads blew us away with her incredibly beautiful nature and her instant love for her little sister. We came home on Wednesday afternoon and have been enjoying the time together as...

Finally Packing My Hospital Bag…
  I am now 38 weeks pregnant which technically could mean that Baby Number Two could arrive at any time.  I don't actually think this will happen as my body hasn't experienced labour before and I had Mads at 39 weeks via elective c-section without so much as a twinge- but still I think it is about time I got...

37 Weeks Pregnant…Bump Diary.
  Due to the fact that I have got so behind with my bump diaries, in the eyes of this blog I am already due another one.  I turned 37 weeks at the end of last week.  I am now officially classed as full term, which is incredibly exciting and nerve wracking at the same time. In just a few...
