    We are waiting….

    Today is the 29th of November. I’m due to give birth in 2 days time and although I thought that my baby girl will arrive by now we are still waiting…. I remember that with boogie my water broke two days before my due date and in some ways I was hoping it will happen again today. My pains been coming and going for the past couple of weeks too. Not sure if the pains were just Braxton Hicks or normal contractions…they seem a bit too string to be only BH though… I’m wondering if in some ways I’m stopping myself to get into labour. I do worry a lot…

    Pregnancy diary 36 weeks

    Phew! The only way I can describe the way I feel at the moment is by saying “phew”! I’m so out of breath is unbelievable! Even eating has become a struggle! It feels like there is no more space in there what so ever! It feels like my skin way to stretched at the moment and that any time soon it will just break. The witness are my stretch marks really but it feels like my skin will just split in two!   I am suppose to still have 4 weeks to go or so and apparently the baby will grow around 1/2 to 1 pound a week. But I…

    Do not expect me to be perfect…

    News and daytime TV been talking about the mum that suffered of postnatal depression that around 6 months ago killed her children…. Every time i listen to it a tear runs down my cheek..So sad! After i gave birth to my daughter i was diagnosed with “postnatal depression”… I am happy that the court didn’t sentenced her to jail and instead they offered her psychiatric help. I can’t even imagine how she feels right now. So good that her husband is standing by her. It must be so painful to hear your wife and soul mate admitting to killing the kids you both made with love…. Felicia Boots wept at…

    My world

    I never been the best in doing things, Every time I had a project like knitting or drawing at school my mum use to help me and basically do it for me. I don’t even know how to hold a needle in my hand to tell you the truth. I tried to stitch but things just don’t come nice out of my hand… When it comes to drawing…oh dear the only things I know how to draw are a house and a flower. If you ask me to draw anything else….then my drawings are just ridiculously funny! One thing I always enjoy doing though was cooking. And when I become…

    My…I want….

    Today I’m joining a new meme – “I want…”. I was tagged by my bump buddy Maria that writes over at Tiger Tales. There are so many things that I want and I think that if I start writing them all down I might get a bit depressed. So here it is: 1. I want for people to be happier. Humanity in general. I think that if a group of people will be happier within themselves then other people that surround them will start to be happier too. We are all too angry these days and will be nice to have some happy in our life. 2. I want for…

    The moment everything changed…

    22.3.2009 – My daughter was only 4 days old. The first four days are still a bit foggy even 4 years since my daughter was born. The 22nd was the day when I finally stopped being numb and start enjoying my time as a new mum. Hubby and I took lots of pictures with our beautiful daughter that day but this picture will stay in my heart forever. I remember that after I took the picture I just starred at my hubby and my daughter for ages… My hubby was mesmerised by our little treasure as you can see. This is the moment I realised that our life changed forever…and…
