NCT Classes – sessions 2 and 3

April 20, 2016

Last week I blogged about our first NCT class and what it involved. Someone commented that they’d like to hear about what would happen next so I thought I’d write about it some more! Since that post we’ve had another two-hour evening session and an all day Saturday session. I have to admit, they have been really helpful and the course leader has been much…

Pregnancy Diary Week 32

April 18, 2016

Last week was a bit of a curve ball in the pregnancy. We’d been prepared for the possibility of complications due to my Polycystic Kidney Disease, but I suppose we didn’t really entertain the idea of anything else being an issue. Least of all the possibility of the baby being breech. Which I imagine is quite possibly statistically more likely than someone of my age…

The 5 Things Body Confidence Challenge

April 15, 2016

Earlier this week I was set the challenge to focus on five things that I like about my body by Eilidh over at Mummy and Monkeys. Eilidh quite rightly pointed out that, like most women, she rarely considers the positive aspects of her own body, and recognises that this needs to change! Like Eilidh (and probably the majority of women out there) I have been…

My Breech Baby at 32 Weeks

April 13, 2016

Well, the 32 week scan didn’t turn out quite as I was expecting. I suppose in some ways it did, in that the baby was once again described as ‘awkward’ but now it’s starting to have some potential ramifications. Firstly, extended breech. Again. Just like at 28 weeks. This means that her feet were up around her head, with her bottom down in my pelvis.…

Pregnancy Diary Week 31

April 11, 2016

This week has been quite pregnancy-focused, actually. We had our first NCT class on Wednesday evening which has started to make it all feel a bit more real! On Tuesday we went for an outing with my lovely friend Katie, an amateur photographer, and she took some cute bump photos for us! It was good fun although I think hubby felt a bit silly when…

The First NCT Class…

April 8, 2016

We went to our first NCT class earlier in the week. I thought I’d write this post because in all honesty hubby and I had no clue what to expect from them; it was more a case of our friends had done them and said they were a good idea and a good way to make friends with other new parents. We didn’t really know…

Gender Roles

April 6, 2016

A good friend upset me the other day. He had read my post about transforming the study (and some of my tweets) and told me that I needed to be less harsh when writing about my husband as, in his opinion, I make him sound like an idiot when he’s actually a top bloke. I was gutted. Of course I know my husband is brilliant.…
