Pregnancy Diary Week 28

March 21, 2016

This has been a relatively busy week for appointments for the baby. On Monday I saw the midwife. From this appointment I learned that I don’t look pregnant from behind, have a very low pubic bone and my bump is measuring almost bang on average for 28 weeks. The midwife took bloods and told me the symptoms to look out for with pre-eclampsia (dreadful headache…

Secret Saviours Anti Stretch Mark Pack – 6 Week Update

March 18, 2016

I’ve been using Secret Saviours Anti Stretch Mark Pack for six weeks now, so I thought I’d do a little update to let you know how I’ve been getting on.

Hospitals are funny places aren’t they? Such a mish-mash of people. I’ve spent quite a significant proportion of my day today (I’m writing this on Tuesday in, you guessed it, the hospital waiting room) at the hospital. Not entirely pregnancy-related and not all for matters pertaining to myself (which I won’t go into, because it’s not my business to share) but it has reminded me…

Pregnancy Diary Week 26

March 7, 2016

Twenty-six weeks of pregnancy. I feel like I say it every week, but it’s true, I never thought I’d be this pregnant! This week has been fairly standard pregnancy-wise. I’ve got a bit bigger but other than that there have been no real dramas (for which I am of course very grateful)! One thing I have noticed is that the baby had been not so…
