Pregnancy Diary Week 37

May 23, 2016

This week of pregnancy has been a bit strange really. I’d always thought that I’d be super chilled come week 37, as this would mean that baby is full term and could arrive perfectly healthily at any time she’s ready. Instead, I’ve spend this week knowing that my baby is going to be born by caesarean section the following week. I’ve been to the hospital…

When to get out the pram? Uppababy Vista First Impressions

May 20, 2016

After lots of umming and ahhing, we eventually decided on an Uppababy Vista as our choice of pushchair. However, Hubby has always been very superstitious. He won’t let me put new shoes on a table, won’t walk past me on the stairs and will never under any circumstances walk over a triple drain. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when his idiot friend…

Pregnancy Diary Week 36

May 16, 2016

This week of pregnancy has been quite eventful really.

So…

Secret Saviours Anti Strech Mark Pack – The (Almost) Final Results!

May 13, 2016

Now that we have an eviction date for baby, I thought I’d better write a stretch mark update while there’s still time! As you know, I’ve been using the Secret Saviours Anti Stretch Mark Pack since around week 22 of this pregnancy. I was a bit late starting, as Secret Saviours recommend that you start using the pack from around weeks 12-14 of pregnancy, but…

The 36 Week Scan – The news I didn’t want to hear…

May 11, 2016

Today (at time of writing; yesterday at time of publishing) we had our scan to see if the baby was still breech. We’ve spent most of the past two weeks since our last scan thinking positively and assuming that, while increasingly less likely, the baby would turn in time and we’d be able to plan a natural birth. We’ve done a hypnobirthing course (which was…

Pregnancy Diary Week 35

May 9, 2016

This week we’ve spent getting a little bit more prepared for the arrival of baby, following the news last weekend that one of our NCT friends, due mere days before us, had their baby five weeks early! This certainly sharpened our focus that there’s not long to go; especially for hubby who I don’t think I’ve ever seen so panicked! Fortunately all seems to be…
