Choosing a Pushchair

January 29, 2016

Oh my word. Where to begin? We are clearly going to need a travel system for the baby when it arrives, but who knew there were so many features and so many different models? The options seem to be endless! I’ve asked around for some advice but to be honest I’m feeling even more overwhelmed. It’s been suggested I focus on our own needs and…

Preparing for Baby – Clearing and Sorting!

January 27, 2016

When I say preparing for baby, I don’t mean all the lovely things like shopping for baby clothes, prams and cots. I mean hardcore sorting. Actually physically making space for another person in the house. I’m not entirely sure how the two of us have managed to fill every cupboard, inch of storage space, and in some cases, floor space *cough*study*cough* in a three bedroom…

Pregnancy Diary Week 20

January 25, 2016

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…

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.

The 20 week scan

January 20, 2016

I thought I’d just write a quick check in post as we had our 20 week scan today. Unfortunately, yet again, we were at the hospital for hours. But the good news is, everything looks fine with the baby which is the not important thing! We first went in for the scan to reveal a very curled up baby! The sonographer asked me to go…

Pregnancy Diary Week 19

January 18, 2016

This week has been a good one. I’ve been feeling good and had lots of supply work (which has left me a very tired but I’m pleased for the work!). I’ve ended up working in several different classes in the same school, so the children are all starting to pick up on the fact that I’m pregnant. I love working with children and the main…

Girl or Boy? Old Wives’ Tales

January 15, 2016

Recently I’ve had a lot of people ask me if I know whether I’m having a boy or a girl this pregnancy. When I reply that no, I don’t, as my next scan isn’t until next week, around 60% of them follow up with, ‘any idea what you think you might be having?’ Well, no! I’m don’t have psychic abilities. I usually reply that I…
