Pregnancy Update |Week 13-14|

I blame myself for this. 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 couldn’t work out if it was pregnancy related or I was just a little bit ill at first. 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

My first trimester of pregnancy is done and dusted! 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

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.

Friday was of corse a school day, so off my little birthday girl went armed with sweets for all of her friends and a big fat in your face birthday badge!! Friday night was a chilled one; Bella had the choice of going out for dinner or staying in with a take away of her choice,… View Post

On The Beach..

I think we can all agree January so far has been dark and dismal. I’ve been leaving for work in the dark and driving home in the dark. The sunshine this weekend was so welcome, despite it being freezing we headed straight to the beach. Before we knew it the sun started setting but it didn’t mean home time for us. We spent a good couple of hours scooting,(walking in my case) running down to the sea, finding shells and building castles. I almost love a winters walk on the beach as much as I love a hot summers day… View Post
