My Birth Story

31/08/2020 – 23:38 -The moment my beautiful baby girl Elsie came into the world. This is my birth story. The day before Elsie was born I went into the hospital for a general check up. The midwife I saw wasn’t 100% happy with babies heart rate as it kept spiking when I was having tightenings. I was put on the monitor for half an hour to get a proper trace and the doctor came to see me. While the trace looked fine as I was over 40 weeks she explained that at this point they would like to look to…

We’re Having A… |20 Week Pregnancy Update|

I can’t quite believe I am half way through my pregnancy already!  The first half seems to have flown by and yet dragged on all at the same time. The first 16/17 weeks were filled with sickness, migraines and not being able to keep my eyes open. Where as the last few weeks have been so up in the air with Covid-19 it’s been quite the experience already. This week I turned 20 weeks pregnant which means baby is 6 1/2 inches from head to bum – roughly the size of a sweet potato! To think in the early days…
