I’ll get straight to the point. I am 38 weeks pregnant and I am POOPING my pants (hopefully not literally during labour) about giving birth again.
The first time you find yourself in the run up to the big D Day (due date), it’s a worrying, scary but unknown time. Your brain can’t ever imagine what you’re actually going to go through. You have to wait it out until it’s time. Of course, you can come up with all sorts of different scenarios but ultimately you don’t really know what’s heading your way. (more…)
As we approach baby’s arrival, I’ve started to put a few things into place to try and make sure that the toddler doesn’t feel too out of place when she realises she’s now one of two, instead of the being the only kiddo around!
I’m a strange one. I’ve been told that a few times in the past week or so. You see I’m days away from being due to give birth. Technically five days to be precise, but we all know babies don’t like to come on their due dates! But that’s not what makes me strange. What makes me strange is that I’m still quite happy being pregnant and bumping along.
Symptoms: Getting pretty uncomfortable now! I really didn’t think I’d make it this far at all. After all the scares in early pregnancy and then the hospital admissions at 23 weeks, no one is more shocked to still be pregnant than me! I’ve started getting some strange symptoms that leave me thinking ‘am I going into labour?!’. There has been a random two day cold (I never get colds), countless nose bleeds (I got them before I went into labour with Little I), I had a couple days where I was really nauseous (like I was before I had Little I), lots of bump pains/tightenings and sleep is rubbish! I also thought I might be losing my mucous plug the other night because my friend had described what it looked like (delightful haha), but who knows. Lastly I’ve been getting more heartburn and have been having some interesting toilet habits (almost as if my body is clearing out for labour……lovely).(more…)
Welcome back to another week of Weekend Tot Style. Thank you so much to everyone who got in touch about co-hosting. Little I had to pick a name out of a cup because I couldn’t think of a fairer way to decide. You were all equally as great 🙂
I’ve reached that time in pregnancy – the packing the hospital bag for labour and birth time! I’m actually a bit late to the game with everything that’s gone on with moving etc. It’s recommended that you look at packing a bag for labour and birth from around 36 weeks of pregnancy. Just in case anything unexpected happens. The last thing you want to be doing is running around mid contraction, trying to pack a bag.
Isabella Oliver is one of those names in maternity wear that you recognise straight away. They are known for their great quality, super functional, but still fashionable items and are loved by celebrities and us normal mamas alike.
As this is our second baby, the newborn lust list is a little smaller than last time. We already have a lot of what we need but it hasn’t stopped me rounding up a few things for a cheeky, little newborn wish list.
Welcome back to another week of Weekend Tot Style. Unfortunately Clearly Bex won’t be returning to co-host, so we are looking for a brand new person to step in and join us. I’ve had a number of emails and messages already, and I love all of your blogs, so I think I’ll have to pick a name out of a hat at the end of the weekend. It’s the only way I can think to do it fairly!
