Welcome Edith Grace… Birth Story

Since we last spoke I have had a baby…. that seems so surreal especially now she is 1 week old. My Due date came and went and every day I woke up with disappointment. Another night had gone by and no baby. I had 5 sweeps and lost my mucous plug 7 times! I didn’t …


We WILL have a baby this week!!!

41 Weeks today… who would have thought it. I for one never thought I would have got to this point in my pregnancy. In fact by now I assumed I would have at least a one week old!! I am possibly the most impatient person ever and I have being late for anything so when …


It’s my due date- Still no Baby!

It’s New Years Eve and whilst everyone is figuring out what to wear or where to go I’m sat wondering where this baby girl is. Erin was on her due date so I was very spoilt in not having to wait. I have had very little sign that she may be on her way and …


Happy Birthday Matthew!

Merry Christmas- What a change from last year!

Is there any point in a birth plan?;

Is there any point in a birth plan?

Seven years ago when I was pregnant with Erin I meticulously wrote a birth plan and thought that when I got to hospital they would ask me for it and everything would be followed word for word. How wrong was I! My birth plan didn’t even get read. It wasn’t asked for, it wasn’t looked …


And it all went to pot!

This week has been very different to my positive pants week of last week. Although Erin has been fantastic with all the change and her star in her play as Innkeeper two! And I have remembered the Elf every day this week! Whooopppp The nesting has not only come to a halt it’s now gone …


Buying for pregnant people, babies, kids and the men in your life!

All I am hearing at the moment is what do the girls want for Christmas? What does Matt want? What do you need?? Unfortunately for our family we are all pretty sorted, but if you are struggling for ideas for babies, 6 year olds, pregnant people and men then you are in the right place!! …


The most magical time of the year… I’m due this month!!!

It’s December… in fact we’re one week in!!!! How did this happen?! This year has flown by and so much has happened. And I am 24 days away from my due date!!! Thankfully I am prepared! After a risky week this week of Matt being in America and my midwife telling me she’s engaged and …
