Two Weeks and That’s that…

Last Friday Edith was two weeks old. As of today were on our own- Matt is back to work, he has had five weeks off in total with me as we were so lucky that Christmas was just before I gave birth. I genuinely thought we would be fed up of each other by now …

Newborn Photoshoot with Dainty Photography

When I was pregnant I kept seeing all of these beautiful photo shoots of tiny babies. This made me regret not having tiny baby pictures of Erin. I waited until Erin was 4 months old to have pictures taken of her (which were beautiful) they just weren’t the same as the gorgeous newborn phase. I …

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 …

Merry Christmas- What a change from last year!

Well, that’s that…another Christmas. It’s appeared quicker than a flash of light for me. This year has gone so fast. When I think back to this time last year we were in London for an amazing show called The Christmasaurus, I was having anxiety attacks, I felt ill and I was going through IVF. I …

The queen of after school clubs!

It’s the end of term and again I have had the flurry of letters asking if Erin would like to do any clubs. Her answer is always yes. Since she started school she’s some tonnes of clubs and I have no idea if I should tone it down or if it’s a really good thing? …

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!
