Pregnancy Diary Week 23

February 15, 2016

This week has, thankfully, been less eventful than the last two, but has still involved a trip to see a medical professional! I worked three days this week which has meant that blogging has had to take a little bit of a back seat (I know, I missed posting anything on Friday, I’m sorry). As it happens, I had planned for Friday to be a…

Preparing for Baby – saving money by changing energy supplier

February 10, 2016

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’ve made some pretty drastic changes to our income in the past six months – resigning from my job has almost halved our income.

February 8, 2016

Well, after last week’s worry I was hoping for a slightly calmer week in this pregnancy, and by and large I did get it, although I let my anxiety get the better of me which created a bit of an issue!

February 5, 2016

I know it might seem vain and I salute women who are proud of their post-partum bodies, but I’m…

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…

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…
