I can believe Amelia is 16 days old already. It's been a blur but a good one, AShe is so beautiful I can't take my eyes off her and watching her eyes start to focus on things is fascinating! Amelia goes 3 to 4 and 1/2 hours between feeds in the ... Read more

Wednesday was our first day at home with baby Amelia. She was born on 5th April at 03:59 weighing 7lb 10oz. I really didn't want to stay in hospital at all but one thing after another kept us in for 5 nights not including the night I had her. ... Read more

Wednesday, March 28, 2012      3 comments

So I had my 40 week appointment today, it was with the midwives I'm not that keen on. The baby is still 3/5 engaged and they told me she is unlikely to engage further until I start having contractions, I though she would go to 5/5 before labour ... Read more

I never thought I'd get to this point in pregnancy. I don't mean I thought I would have had he baby by now, but 39 weeks felt so far away! No midwife appointment this week, my next one is on my due date. I've had lots of braxton hicks latel... Read more

So I've just got back from my appointment, the good news is the baby is now 3/5 engaged. However I had glucose in my urine, the midwife asked me what I've been eating and sounded shocked when she saw the reading. I later learned it was +1 whatev... Read more

The last few days I have spent mostly either lying or sitting down, I have had loads of Braxton hicks and a constant pain similar to period pain. I have also felt sick and had a slightly upset tummy with no energy and a very erratic appetite. I ... Read more

I've been a bit hit and miss lately on Spark but I'm still here. We've been super busy with the house and baby preparations. I'm feeling good apart from the hip pain and I've managed quite a bit of painting. We should be finished with the painti... Read more
32 Weeks - Update
Wednesday, February 01, 2012      4 comments

I saw the midwife earlier today, it seems that everything is ok. I got to see the nice midwife today, the one I usually see always gives me the impression that I'm interupting her break or something. I'm measuring 32cm, so at 32 weeks thats spot... Read more
A chocolate bar survived 3 days in my kitchen!

I'm trying to make a few healthy changes while I'm pregnant so that when I'm ready to lose the baby weight it will be that little bit easier. I have dramatically reduced the amount of sugar I eat, and although I've had bad days as well as the go... Read more
I'm back!

So the last couple of weeks have been nothing but hectic! We've finally got a nice living room, just a few finishing touches but it feels so much nicer to sit in an uncluttered living room without the loud wallpaper left by the previous owners! ... Read more
Why do people do this?....

So I have spent the last couple of weeks without refined sugar, apart from my nicotine patches of marmalade or a rich tea biscuit (low sugar) Matt has done the same and that combined with his medication has already improved things for him :-D I ... Read more
Feeling better

Sometimes I think my body is just having a laugh with me (or at me) Just when I think I've dealt with the things that I need to I get the worst cold I've had in a long time. Being pregnant means that I couldn't take any over the counter remedies... Read more
Found some motivation :-)
Thursday, January 05, 2012      3 comments

So after the hospital visit with Matt yesterday I have found my motivation to eat as healthy as possible. I have made an effort to reduce the sugar in my diet but being pregnant and not being able to lose weight has left me feeling a bit strange... Read more

Ok, it's been ages since my last blog. Getting everything ready for Christmas this year was hard, emotionally and physically. I have had some terrible pelvic pain, I expected to get some pains but I was contemplating staying upstairs all day and... Read more
