• Birth story from Scatty Mummy

    This week birth story comes from Scatty Mummy that blogs over at Life,love and diving with boys. As you know I’m due/was on 2nd of December so she was kind to write her birth story for my blog. (This is a scheduled post). With no further add from me I give you Scatty Mummy’s birth story: Mum of two boys under four and married to Scatty Dad. I’ve quite aptly named myself Scatty Mum of Boys and I blog over at Life, Love and Living with Boys. I write about life with my two cheeky monkeys and as I am a Peer Supporter, I also like to write about breastfeeding…

  • 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…

  • 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 week 39 – short version

    I can’t believe I’m 39 weeks pregnant! I actually thought that this baby will arrive early…but this baby girl is exactly like her sister so she will probably arrive on her due date – 1st of December. My bump is rather big now and plus my face is way fatter than it was last week for example! Hubby blames the two tubes of ice cream that I had last week! LOL! I guess is what’s suppose to happen in the last week isn’t?!? See picture below – I grown in my bump but my back too: Yup! The only way I could describe myself now is…HUGE! Also if you saw…

  • Pregnancy diary 37 weeks

    Today I’m 37 +5 weeks pregnant. Time is passing so fast. It feels like yesterday when I found out I was pregnant. It feels like only yesterday I stopped working… In hopefully less than 3 weeks time or so I will be holding my baby girl in my arms. Yesterday I had an appointment with the obstetrician and the specialist mental health midwife. After measurements although I am 37 weeks I’m measuring 39 cm which apparently it is fine and it doesn’t mean that my baby girl is big. She is with her head down but not engaged just yet. Again I’m only 37 weeks so she has time to…

  • 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…
