Pregnancy In Isolation

Being pregnant can be stressful at any given time; there are so many changes so even the most planned out pregnancies leave you with lots of questions when it comes to things like maternity leave, living arrangements etc. Now throw in the biggest worldwide health pandemic for a century whilst you’re pregnant to make it even more interesting. I am 18 weeks pregnant and we are in the midst of living in isolation due to Covid-19.  Two weeks ago the government advice changed to move pregnant women into the vulnerable category of this virus. At that moment my heart sank… View Post

Lottie Turns SIX!

Lottie is SIX!  It’s a cliche and I say it every time we have a birthday but I really can’t believe she is another year older. Her birthday fell in the half term, so I took a couple of days annual leave and we had the best family day all together celebrating her sixth birthday. It’s been a crazy last few months; with being pregnant, Christmas, Maisy and Bella’s birthdays also thrown in the mix. We decided not to have a party but just a nice day out all together. Our day started early (as most children’s birthday’s tend to… View Post

I published a post a couple of weeks ago about how to get through the first trimester. I thought I was over the morning sickness, over the feeling exhausted – oh how wrong I was… Around the start of week 13; just on the come down of telling everyone our exciting news etc I started to feel super rough again.

I started getting really intense migraines everyday, the only relief from the pounding in my head came… View Post

My tips for getting through the first trimester

I made it through some dark times when I thought my head may actually be stuck down the toilet for good, I am finally seeing that light at the end of the tunnel everyone talks about in the second trimester. I can now stay awake past 9:30pm (woohoo party animal) and I am so relieved that paranoid ‘have they guessed I’m pregnant?’ phase has passed, as now the happy news has been shared with all our close friends and family and I can start enjoying the ‘oo you put your feet… View Post

We’re Having A Baby!

Words I never thought I’d be announcing again; I Am Pregnant!  I have been keeping this little secret in for what feels like forever, but now its finally out – we’re having a baby!  My tribe of three will become a four this summer with our little blessing arriving to join in the madness. I can’t explain the excitement levels telling these three they’re going to be big sisters all over again. Maisy; who’s usually very laid back and nonchalant could not take the huge beaming smile off her little face, I don’t think I have ever seen her so… View Post
