Another week has flown by, I feel I am beginning to feel like a broken record, somehow I have got to week 22 already. For those that have been following my bump watch, No I haven’t made any further progress getting organised, hey I have about 18 weeks! That’s looking back to say July, that’s aaaaaaages right? Oh Crumbs maybe not! Actually, I bought a packet of newborn nappies this week, there, progress, I’m getting there slowly! Anyway, there are far more pressing things to think about, Halloween is now over which can only mean one thing, Christmas planning!
I think my hormones have been really messing me this week, I have been a little bit of an emotional wreck. Getting upset over a few things like my cats health. To be honest, I will probably be upset whether pregnant or not, but I have gone from happy to crying in seconds, which must be my hormones.… Read More
Blink and you miss it so they say, well here’s to week 21 and it certainly feels like I almost missed it! I can’t believe there’s only 19 weeks to go. I realised I am actually heading into my 6 month of pregnancy….what?!? I’m beginning to panic, I basically have everything somewhere from Finlay, but I am not feeling prepared! I still don’t feel like I have my head around this pregnancy. Perhaps that is completely normal for the second one? I shall just keep telling myself that, that will make me feel better, maybe I will write a to do list…..maybe…if I get round to it!
This week I say a fond au revoir to my belly button. It was nice knowing you. I admire how you faithfully returned last time a little worse for wear. If you return again, you may have to give me the heads up as I don’t think I will recognise you.… Read More
It Seems Bump watch has naturally fallen into place on a Monday. This suits me fine and it means I can link straight up to #MaternityMondays hosted by Emma at Farmers Wife & Mummy. It also means I get a couple of extra days to add any extra updates as my new pregnancy week starts on a Sunday! It has been quite an exciting week this week as I have hit 20 weeks. That means I am half way through (for a normal 40 week pregnancy). How did that Happen? 20 weeks also marks the week of the anomaly scan, and if you want to find out the gender, as long as baby is playing ball, you should get find out Pink or Blue at this appointment! What did we do? Keep reading to find out!
I was having a conversation with a friend on Sunday about the pregnancy and I said I feel that I am in denial, but my mind is excited!… Read More
Running Late with Bump watch again! Is this the start of pregnancy misorganisation? Quite possible! I knew I was going to be busy over the last couple of days and with all good intentions I was going to draft my post. However, I forgot, oops, baby brain! Am I allowed to say that before baby arrives?
Today, Chris and I actually had a rare toddler free day, we are both off work and Finlay was in Nursery. So we went for a lovely romantic stroll down the forest. It rained. We found a creepy blair witch style twig house to huddle in, it was kinda cute. We then went for a tapas style Thai Lunch, then back home for feet up and a movie snuggled on the sofa. These days are so rare, I just couldnt open my laptop. However come this evening, I was so excited to see I was selected for Farmers wife & Mummys Favourite from #maternityMondays linky last week.… Read More
I apologise Bump watch was delayed this week as I intended to post it every Friday. Last week, however, was a pretty heart-wrenching day. Our beautiful old cat was rushed to vets with breathing difficulties. He has been diagnosed with heart failure and heart disease. I was pretty heartbroken and penned a post to him. I could really think about writing much else. Today I’m feeling a bit more positive, so here’s this week’s instalment of Bump watch albeit a little. On a plus I get to link straight up to #MaternityMondays
I still feel pretty small for 18 weeks. Not that I can remember how big I was with Finlay. I never documented it so I’m relying on my terrible memory! I don’t remember being able to hide the bump so well last time round, so that’s what makes me feel I am smaller. It may be just because I didn’t have to hide it last time.… Read More
Welcome to my first ever Bump Watch post. It seems so long ago now when I first found out I was pregnant with Tiny Tuppen #2. In fact, I think initially, I was in a bit of denial. It wasn’t that this baby wasn’t planned or wanted, but I was smack bang in the middle of a work dispute. Chris and I had been discussing expanding our family earlier in the year, but when I was issued with my ‘At Risk of Redundancy’ notice. The sensible option was to wait and see if I still had a job.
I learnt my job was safe and babies once again became a topic of conversation. However, as the universe likes to test us, I was then told my working pattern no longer fitted the organisation. My hours were cut, and my working pattern completely changed. It left me in a very difficult situation financially.… Read More
