    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…

    Baby essentials discovered at the Baby Show

    A couple of weeks ago we went to The Baby Show at Earl’s Court. The weather wasn’t especially nice so we thought we would look at it as a day out. Plus with a baby on the way we wanted to see if we can get some bargains for the new arrival. We do go every year really since my daughter was born. It is an opportunity to find new brands and innovative products. I remember when i was pregnant with my first¬†The Bunk Cot company¬†was just presenting their first product. Unfortunately although one will be a bliss to have right now our current financial situation doesn’t allow us to…

    Dr.Adam Urato New study – Avoid Antidepressants During Pregnancy

    Yesterday evening I was invited by Huffington Post to take part in a live interview via Google + hangouts with DR. Adam Urato and two other mums that suffered of depression during pregnancy and took antidepressants – Becky Harks and Rhiana Maidenbergand. If you watch it please be gentle as it is basically my first time ever and I did bubble a lot. However, i am proud that I did take part and told my story. So what is this new study is actually saying about the SSRI antidepressants and pregnancy? Apparently their is a connection between taking the antidepressants and pregnancy complications and birth defects. So what do we…

    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…

    Pregnancy diary week 33

    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. Other things that happen this last week: – my…

    Pregnancy diary week 31

    I still didn’t take any pictures with me and the bump. I need to blame my hubby for this actually. I actually thought that I will have lots by now considering that my hubby is quite good at taking pics and he wants to get serious in the photography business. Anyway.I am now 31 + 3 days and I am only acknowledging that I am actually pregnant. Please don’t laugh. LOL. Hubby can’t believe that there are only 8-9 weeks left until my due date. I on the other hand feel big like a whale and I feel that my left weeks will be a struggle. It is already a…

    Pregnancy diary – 27 weeks

    Today I am starting my 28th week of pregnancy but I am actually exactly 27 weeks today. I feel….tired. But that’s no surprise is it?!? I’m on my 3rd trimester so it’s understandable. I don’t really remember the first time to be as tired as i am now though…Well last time I was firstly younger and then I didn’t have a toddler to look after either. Plus my hubby used to drive to and from work every day last time starting the 3rd trimester. But now we both moved jibes in the centre so that’s not possible anymore…I wish it was though…. By the end of the day my legs…
