Our Baby Boy’s Birth Story…
On Monday 18th April 2016 I awoke with butterflies fluttering inside my tummy. Today was the day that I had been counting down since I was 16 weeks pregnant. The day that our little boy would be born. To say that I was nervous is a complete understatement- I was absolutely terrified but I tried to hold it together....

This Time After Birth
It's 3.05am in the morning I think, or it could be 1am, 2am or even 4. The time is irrelevant. All that matters is I am awake. I try and somehow heave my sore and broken body up as my little 6 day old son cries out for me, his little shrieks getting more and more frenzied as he...

What I am Packing in my Hospital Bag (C-Section Delivery): For Mum
A couple of weeks ago I wrote about what I am taking in my hospital bag for our baby boy when I go in to have him in less than a couple of weeks time. (eeek!) I have finally got organised and packed my bag for myself too, as of course this is no where near as fun as packing all...

What I am Packing in my Hospital Bag: For Baby
In some ways I am completely and utterly ready for our baby boy to be here. Emotionally I am more than ready, physically I am more than ready and in terms of clothes and bigger bits I am ready too. However most of the aforementioned bigger things, like the pram, crib and car seat are either stored in the loft or...

When You Just Feel A Little Bit Scared About Birth
I've been a little hesitant to write this post, I'm not even sure why. I don't know whether it's because I feel it is a little silly, or a little too personal, or even almost in a weird way like I am tempting fate, but for some reason every time I began to write it I stopped myself. However I...

The Second Trimester
I don't really seem to be following any sort of pattern with my pregnancy updates this time around, in fact I have only done a couple, but as I did a post signalling the end of my first trimester I thought I would do the same this time around too. As I write this I am currently 29 weeks pregnant...

A Pregnancy Update- Four and Five Months Pregnant
I can't believe that I am now over halfway through my third pregnancy. This month has gone crazy fast, what with all the festive celebrations so I thought it would be nice to do a little update on how my third pregnancy is going. I really wanted to do regular updates, but to be honest life is just so busy...

We are having a ….. Our Gender Reveal
I completely admire the willpower of people who wait until after their baby is born to find out their sex, I can imagine it is so special and such an experience. I am unfortunately not one of those people! We found out at our 20 week scan (actually a tiny bit sooner with LL) that they were going to...
