22 weeks

It’s been an uneventful 1 1/2 weeks since our scan, but my bank account has already taken a battering buying a few little lady treats!  We are still excited about expecting a little girl for a change, and our chats are all about how a little lady will change our family dynamic, and we’ll no… Continue reading 22 weeks

It’s a……

We’ve been, we’ve seen,  First and foremost we have a lazy but very healthy 20 week old fetus residing in my belly.  Our sonographer was wonderful, very informative and kind, my nerves and jitters were immediately calmed! We got to see all the details of our new baby, and it was great to hear that… Continue reading It’s a……

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.

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…
