    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. It feels really crowded actually and the pressure baby puts on my bladder and my pelvic area is enormous, and it hurts! My nights been really bad as well. 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…

    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…

    There are only 5 weeks left to my due date! Where did the time go? Why is time passing so quick? In a way I am looking forward to the end if tis pregnancy as I am so big and out of breath!

She is such an active little baby, exactly like her sister. Boogie is also looking forward to meet her sister. Because she knows that baby will arrive before Christmas she keeps asking how long is left until Christmas.…

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.

    First of all today is my husband birthday so i want to wish him “Happy Birthday”!!! I love you lots and I hope our relationship will be as strong for many years to come! Now talking about the pregnancy – today I had a 4D scan done as well. It was an amazing experience! My daughter couldn’t stop talking but as soon as the baby appeared on the screen she took my hand and kissed it. So sweet! I will definitely remember this moment forever! The reason behind the 4D scan? Well we had one done with my daughter so we thought it wouldn’t be unfair if we didn’t have…

    Pregnancy diary – 28 weeks

    The weather is really nice this weekend isn’t it? Very sunny and hot. You wouldn’t think this is september in London. Anyway my week was…I’m not sure how to describe it…it was a bit sad as I found myself crying a little bit every day… The pregnancy hormones and my depression added together don’t help my state of mind. I had problems sleeping and my legs seem to hurt even more this week. The good news this week is that I received a letter from the hospital this week and my glucose levels are normal so gestational diabetes. This pleases me greatly as I was quite scared diabetes is in…
