When  2 Became 3, My Labour & Birth Story (Part 2)

On the Wednesday, the first pessary I had been given was removed and the midwife did an examination of my cervix. Not much had happened at all. I was approximately 1-1.5cm dilated and my cervix was still too far back so she placed another in and left it to do it’s magic for another 24 hours. Again, I tried walking, bouncing on the pregnancy ball, I had a curry for tea and ate a lot of fruit in the hopes it would help move things along. No such luck. View Post

When 2 Became 3, My Labour & Birth Story (Part 1)

I went to my 38 week midwife appointment with a touch of nervousness and a whole load of excitement. I’d had braxton hicks on and off for the past few weeks and had been slowly losing my plug. Baby had been engaged for at least a week and had been head down for a few weeks. So in theory, I was thinking something should be happening around now. My midwife carried out all of the usual checks, hearing baby’s heartbeat, measuring my bump, BP etc. However, my blood pressure was a little raised and she wanted me to see the community midwives again in the morning. I was fairly accustomed to this as I’d done it twice over the past few weeks. View Post

Oh, Hey There…

Hello my lovelies 🙂

I know a lot of people get stuck in a rut or lose inspiration and sometimes motivation when it comes to blogging. It made me realise that I wasn’t fully enjoying what I was blogging about. Also with working full time and being pregnant, I was tired and I just didn’t have the motivation to do any posts or the inspiration to think of any. Bit of a pain in the bum if you ask me.
But hey, I’m back! The posts I did enjoy writing the most were my pregnancy posts and more talkative ones. So now baby bear is 15 weeks old, and yes sometimes stuck to my boob for long periods of time, I thought ‘why not start another blog, one I have interest in and the motivation to do’. The other day I had this sudden urge to create a new blog, somewhere I could share my thoughts, my fears, my ramblings and also share the good times and the things we get upto as a family. View Post
