Body… not confident

2012 I had just given birth… I did little exercise and got back into my size 8 jeans after 6 weeks. I didn’t really diet and was happy with my weight. I never got back to the 7 stone 6 I was before I got pregnant but at 8 stone 7 I was happy. Roll …

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!!!

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 …

Be Prepared or prepare to fail!

I am a lover of being organised, I think organisation is the key to mum life and I thought I was pretty organised with this baby and it happening around Christmas. I have been so prepped with all Christmas presents and have even written my cards and wrapped my presents! All be it I have …

And that’s that… Maternity leave here we come!

It’s 6.30am… I am awake. This is unheard of but I had a terrible nights sleep and my heart keeps fluttering with excitement. Today is my last day at work and my baby-shower. I’m not going to lie I’m excited about both! I have so many things I want to do before our baby girl …
