    Sleep?!? What is that?!?

    I just hit the wall! The wall of tiredness…I miss sleeping. I mean I do sleep but its not at all good sleep.Its mostly disturbed sleep. Every 3 hours sleeping for half an hour during the night it’s not good.I do however love cuddling and spending time with my little baby no matter the hour. At the beginning of the week I thought that i finally crack it and Boogie is ok with the new baby and the baby finally got used to this world.

    Baby Anastasia – one month old

    Today is the 2nd of January which means that my little Baby Anastasia is already one month old! Incredible how fast the time has past! It was a very eventful month fortunately and unfortunately.

    Jayne’s Birth Story

    Jayne has been blogging at Mum’s the Word for over two years and started Maternity Matters with Susanne after deciding that she wanted to use her birth experience to help other families who’ve suffered a birth trauma.

    Baby A On The Way? – part 1

    Things started to happen on the 29th of November when my friend Suzie and her daughter were visiting us. At around 3pm on the afternoon I felt that my BH were a lot stronger and felt quite tired. After they left I allowed myself to have a nice and hot bath. When hubby arrived from work I was just collapsed on the couch withy little one…Sitting on the ball that night felt the right thing to do…I was not in real pain but the tightening was quite powerful. At 4 am on the 30th I woke up from my sleep unable to lay down on the bed anymore. I spent…

    For about a week and a half now the Braxton Hicks I am experiencing got stronger and stronger. My baby moves lots as well although the space is not as big.

I am barely sleeping because I of the BH and because the trips to the bathroom are so blood often. Anyway this afternoon the pains started to be stronger and at 5 pm when I went to see my GP she told me that baby is almost fully engaged hence…

    Guess what? I have some new pictures with my bump! Thanks to my husband that is! Hubby took quite a few pictures but i really don’t like how i look in any of them…I mostly don’t like my face so here is the picture that i chose to show you with my bump: As you can see I’m quite big…and the stretch marks are quite clear on the sides of my bump. From my first pregnancy the stretch marks doubled! I guess that is normal and it suppose to happen. Hopefully they will fade a little bit after the baby arrives.
