Pregnancy Update – Week 34

I’ve been feeling a little defeated this week. Waddling around is taking it out of me. I’ve done something to my foot which makes it painful to use. Morning sickness has me gagging all day and I don’t think I’ve ever been this light headed in all my life. My hands and fingers are even more painful than last week and I just feel like giving in and crying a little.
The negatives have definitely stepped up this week, but as always the positives stack up higher. I’ve only got this feeling for 5(ish) more weeks, which means I’m only going to feel her lovely movements for that long too. So whilst I’m getting a little down from feeling rubbish every time I feel her move it kind of makes up for all of that.

Pregnancy Update – Week 30 – 32

I’m pretty sure I’ve almost completed my transformation into new born baby, that’s what happens when you get pregnant right? More than regular toilet trips, routine meals and naps needed almost every four hours, I rely on someone else to do everything for me and constantly wanting to cry (hello hormones!).

To Buy Or Not To Buy – Baby ‘Essentials’ The Sleepy Head

Like most people these days, I’m a sucker for a YouTube trend. New makeup must haves, skin care routine necessities or the trendiest new fashion items. The only difference nowadays is that it’s ‘baby essentials’ and ‘must haves’. As someone with not much of an income, it’s very difficult to pick out the right things and save all the pennies I can before our little one gets here. The biggest […]

Pregnancy Update – Week 28

12 WEEKS LEFT! 3 months, and that’s only until her ‘estimated’ due date! I honestly never though I would be a mum and now I’m only 3 months away from a lifetime of holding my daughter. This week hasn’t been a rough one at all, seems as though everything has settled back to normal, pregnancy normal of course. After nipple drama last week I could definitely use a little bit […]

Pregnancy Update – Week 27 (‘TMI’ warning)

Nipples. Nipples. Nipples. It’s not the fact that I think they are going to drop off every time I leave the house in this frosty weather, or the constant pregnancy soreness that I was expecting. It’s the matter of my piercing! February 2017, I made the half thought out decision to have one of my nipples pierced. Stupidly, but rather typically for me at that time, I made the decision […]

Pregnancy Update – Week 26

I’ve seriously loved being pregnant, but my word it’s uncomfortable. I was definitely not prepared for the fact I would never feel comfort again. (Dramatic much?) If you are planning on having a baby then please, for the love of your bladder, get yourself a toilet to plumb in your bedroom. Maybe this is such a big issue for me because our toilet is downstairs in the absolute coldest part […]

Valentine’s Gifts For Men – Gift Ideas

I’ve always put so much pressure on getting the gift for my boyfriend perfect, that it’s took the enjoyment out of valentines. Why? Valentine’s Day is one day a year, it’s special because we’ve made it special, it’s not special when you’re running round shops looking for that perfect gift for him that’s going to knock his socks off. When you buy each other gifts all year round it makes […]
