41 weeks plus…

Since Sunday I’ve been taking a break from social media as my pregnancy stretches into its final days. Instagram has been a constant companion since my second son Barney was born, and I adore the community of friends I have there, but among those friends were a lot of pregnant mummas who were due around… Continue reading 41 weeks plus…

Growth scan 40+4

We popped to the hospital yesterday for a growth scan in the antenatal department. It was strange being there again for a bonus glimpse of Bébé!  Luckily she’s all fine and head down, with good blood flow through the placenta still. They are predicting a 9lb 6oz’er so she’s not going to be a tiny… Continue reading Growth scan 40+4

Final Days…

Today I reached 40 weeks plus.. Deep down I hoped for a due date baby, if not before, and I found reaching that date quite emotional for reasons I couldn’t understand.  Since then I do understand, it’s the pressure of people knowing and the constant caring but also the level of remarks and suggestions, and… Continue reading Final Days…

The best nights sleep, and heroine of all pillows 

I’m in love. With a pillow. Last night I had the best sleep in weeks thanks to my new BBhugme maternity pillow.  I’d hung onto my horrible old Dream Genii maternity pillow for the past few years, and by this third pregnancy it wasn’t feeling great. I also felt constantly trapped and ended up getting… Continue reading The best nights sleep, and heroine of all pillows 

Scan count down 19/20 weeks in

I’m on countdown, T minus 7 days until our anomaly scan.  I’m excited, nervous, trepidatios and full of confusion over all my bubbling feelings about this no3 malarkey this week.     So far, bump has been most well behaved (now I’ve forgiven it for putting me through chronic nausea), and it’s movements don’t seem as… Continue reading Scan count down 19/20 weeks in

18 weeks and the bump archive 

The first proper little kicks have become more noticeable, so it finally feels like the womb invader is making her/his presence felt.  I scrolled a loonnngggg way back through my Instagram feed this week to see if I had documented any bump pictures from my pregnancy with Barnaby back in 2013 and turns out, I… Continue reading 18 weeks and the bump archive 

Current Feels at 17 and a bit weeks in… 

Feeling like I’m in no mans land, our 20 week scan isn’t until the 27th and I have a 5th birthday to get through next weekend! My skin hasn’t improved much, so I treat myself to some Aesop moisturiser and Bloom and Blossom bath oil treats from Space NK.  Baby made me do it (!) … Continue reading Current Feels at 17 and a bit weeks in…
