15 Months – update on toddler A

As much as I love watching A grow and learn and become increasingly independent, it’s also a little sad. She’s not my baby anymore. I mean she’ll always be my baby but she’s not 100% dependent on me and although in my current condition that’s helpful, when I think of the reality of time and…

32 weeks – 2 hospital appointments and a teething toddler…

Maybe I’ve blocked out the negative memories of my first pregnancy but I don’t remember feeling so terrible at 32 weeks with A. I was still working at this point and was most definitely bigger but don’t recall feeling so exhausted! This week got off to a bad start with an unusually long day at…

Nightmare hospital visit

29 Weeks – Pregnancy update.

This week has been especially hard. I had a midwife appointment on Monday morning where I found out my iron levels were really low. I've been worried about this for a while now as I haven't been taking iron supplements but trying to eat food with a high iron content. In my last pregnancy I…

Update on Baby A: 14 Months

I always thought I'd enjoy the 'baby' stage of my daughters life the most; when their just entirely dependent upon you and everything is new and adorable.
