Being the Mrs and the Mummy

Married for just over a year now and expecting our second child, due September.

My maternity clothes are now too big but my regular clothes are still a bit small

A girl, born Monday September 22nd at 19.52. Labour started at 4pm and we only just made it to the hospital in time, she was in a right hurry to arrive. Only got gas and air :(

Keeping well, just bloody tired. 5am feeds followed by a pre-schooler who gets up at 6.30am = one bloody long day.

Just glad my husband is taking his full 2 weeks paternity leave and that he has the most wonderful parents who are very happy to come up and help lots. Got a list of chores that are starting to build up.

So fed up of sparkly vision, why aren’t these iron tablets making any difference it’s been almost two weeks. Surely they should be making some difference?

So baby if you feel like making an appearance, please do.

I seriously doubt it though. In fact I highly expect to go way overdue.

Any day for the next 5 weeks could be the day.

Not impressive.




I actually just started tearing up in the middle of the marshall center lol

(via liguoriliscious)

4 weeks or less to go = manageable

that it could be 4-6 weeks more to go = unbareable

I am so ready for baby, everything hurts, I can barely walk, always so uncomfortable, picking up iron tablets today for anaemia but not sure they’ll start working before baby is due, barely sleeping, I am really quite miserable and am really looking forward to being able to get back to myself.
