Secret Saviours Anti Stretch Mark Pack – First Impressions

February 5, 2016

Okay, I’m not going to lie. I swore blind that I would never post a picture online of my naked pregnant belly. Not a chance. However, I consider this to be in the public interest if it means that more of us can escape stretch marks! I know it might seem vain and I salute women who are proud of their post-partum bodies, but I’m…

Thankfully, the happenings of Friday seemed to have been a false alarm. However, during the three or so hours we spent waiting for the midwife to arrive, I blamed myself repeatedly. “It’s my fault,” I heard myself saying, “I stayed too late at work on Wednesday and haven’t slept enough this week.” “It’s my fault,” I said again later, “I told people that everything was…

Pregnancy Diary Week 21

February 1, 2016

This week has been a bit of a roller coaster pregnancy wise. It started off on such a high last Sunday when hubby felt the baby move for the first time. We weren’t expecting him to be able to at this stage as I’d only been able to feel the baby moving myself for around ten days, but the baby gave me a massive boot…

Well, what a week this has been! 21 weeks pregnant today and time to write my diary for week 20. First we had the 20 week scan on Tuesday, which was soooo exhausting (how can sitting around in a waiting room be so tiring?!). Then we revealed the gender of our baby in this little video, which I’ve been told is rather cute! I like…

Our Gender Reveal!

January 22, 2016

So, as you may know, we had our 20 week scan earlier this week. The baby decided to curl up in a ball repeatedly, creating something of a challenge for the sonographer. Anyway, it was while I was in the bathroom emptying my bladder and doing some star jumps in the hope that baby would turn around, that I noticed a sign on the back…
