Pregnancy Journals – 22-26 Weeks

22-24 Weeks It’s currently 6:28 am as I write this on the exact day I turn 24 weeks and whilst I’ve completely been slack with writing snippets weekly I thought I should probably do an update now otherwise there really is no point to these…

Prep Your Home For Autumn.

Prep Your Home For Autumn.

AUTUMN IS HERE and whilst I’ve seen a lot of people already get into the swing of Autumn, the weather has certainly helped with that but for some, it’s being a bit more of a struggle with the upcoming increasing of bills and whatever else over the colder months of the year. Whether you’re a lover of the season or a hater, there are still essential things in my opinion that you need to do in order to prep your home for Autumn.

Prep Your Home For Autumn

  • Deep Clean Your Home: Just like you would at springtime, Autumn also requires it’s own kind of spring clean, an Autumn clean is essential to getting ready for the Autumn months. As you take a look around your house you’ll find that spider season has meant that cobwebs are much more prominent in your home right now and they need to be rid of to get your house cozy ready for the colder months ahead.
  • Get Some Autumn Decor: If you’re not really a fan of Autumn then this one isn’t really for you but if you are, and the chances are that you are for being here in the first place. Autumn decor doesn’t have to be expensive, Grab some candles, Pinecones, and gourds of types and you’re well away to getting your house all autumned up. If you want to push the boat out you can find some brilliant Autumn and Halloween decor at home sense and TK Maxx and I have a post about Autumn Wreaths that you NEED this season
  • Prep For Cold Nights: Blankets, blankets, and more blankets and maybe a few more if you’re a bit tight and don’t want to put that heating on just yet. As autumn creeps in it’s inevitable that soon we’re going to need to take a deep breath and put on the heating to keep us all toasty warm in the colder hours of the night.
  • Prep For Darker Nights: Candles are good at this time of year but you have to be vigilant and make sure you don’t fall asleep with them alight, safety first ladies and gents. It might also be worth if you haven’t got any already getting some fairy lights or lamps to just warm the room a little bit to create a beautiful cozy ambiance.
  • Buy A Bulk Of Bubble Bath: If you’re anything like me this might not even need to be a point on your autumn home prep list because you love bubble baths that much you always have bubble bath readily available at all times but if not and you’re dead sensitive to the cold weather, you’re gonna need that bubble bath to warm up your bones after those chilly autumnal walks you’re bound to be venturing on.

Bird Let Loose

Bird Let Loose

Bird let loose, kind of. Since Birdies escape into the world a couple of weeks back (read about it here) I had been wracking my brains of ways that I could take her out with me that didn’t involve wearing a harness that was so big for her that she’d wriggle out of it and escape. I’d seen bird bags/ carriers before on the internet but never revisited the idea until I saw one advertised on my Instagram and I instantaneously ordered one. I pink little spaceship for my favourite little bird.

Bird Let Loose

The estimated delivery wasn’t until the 22nd of September so I was fully expectant to not receive it until then, but to my surprise, it came much sooner and that meant Birdie and I were about to embark on some amazing little adventures together. On the first night that we’d received the carrier, we put her in it, with some of her belongings and took her up and down the street so that she could get used to it and she seemed to warm to it pretty fast. Initially putting her in it she panicked and I thought that it was going to be a complete disaster buy.

you can add personalized little touches if you want to help make your bird feel a little more at home.

Luckily she blooming loved it and so that meant we didn’t have to leave it very long before we took her back out for some more adventures. In fact, we took her out the very next day for a walk around the Arboretum, a park literally around the corner from us with the dogs. Getting her inside was a bit of struggle again because she’d not yet determined that going in this pink spaceship means outdoor adventures but. never the less she was absolutely loving it once she was in and secure.

In the car she was watching the tree’s and buildings as we passed by them and at the park, she was making the chuntering noises that she does when she’s content and every now and then would shout out to us just to make sure we were there, as she was on my back, she couldn’t see me and Stewart occasionally wandered ahead with the dogs. You’d have thought we’d have driven a lot of attention to us walking around a park, but it was a Thursday and the park was pretty quiet and I don’t think a lot of people tend to turn around to look at a bag that someone who they’ve walked past is wearing so it probably wasn’t that noticeable that I was actually walking around with a bird on my back.

I’m already planning my next trip to take her out, I honestly didn’t expect her to be so good about it, I expected her more to squark devilishly loud and distressing but the fact she didn’t make me really happy. If you’ve got a conure as small as Birdie and you are struggling to find a harness to fit them, I definitely recommend buying one of these bird carriers to take them out on adventures with you. It’s worth every. single. penny.

Pregnancy Journals Weeks 17-21

Pregnancy Journals Weeks 17-21

Welcome back to another installment of the Pregnancy Journals weeks 17-21. I can’t help but feel like this installment might be a little short and sweet but that’s because i’ve really not had to struggle with much symptoms and things in relation to pregnancy. I’m just really enjoying the experience of growing my little cherub.

 

17 Weeks

17 weeks pregnant and honestly I don’t know where the weeks are going. It’s going super fast and honestly that delights me as I can’t wait to meet her. I’ve been feeling brilliant recently, food is still a bit weird but apples are my favourite things on the planet at the moment and the little babe has finally, FINALLY let me eat chocolate again without feeling sick at the thought of putting it in my mouth.

 

18-19 Weeks

I’m writing these weeks together because I forgot to write notes about them and document how I was feeling because of how normal I was feeling. I’ve got a lot hungrier in these weeks and whilst that’s great, the amount of food that enters my stomach really isn’t that much because of my stomach being compressed by the little human living inside my uterus right now. I felt an odd bubble/pop in my belly and I can only assume that was the first of my noticeable baby movements but one couldn’t be too sure.

 

20 Weeks

Wow, 20 weeks already. Halfway through, now that’s mad to think about. I’m still a very hungry mother to be and all food is going down pretty well surprisingly. Weight is still not past 11 stone which is what it was when I started the pregnancy, we had our 20 week scan and our little babe is growing perfectly normal so, there’s nothing to worry about, I’m growing a healthy baby and losing weight (whilst getting fatter) in the process and life is just great. Cloud 9 is most definitely where I’m at, at the moment. Baby has also started moving a lot this week I’ve started seeing my belly twinge and feel little ”spasm” like feelings where the twinges are and whilst I thought I’d not take well to it I’ve actually come to think that they’re pretty magical. To feel your baby moving around in your stomach is just something else. I didn’t believe it when people told me it would be.

 

21 weeks

Baby’s movements are certainly getting much stronger. I can almost already predict when she’s going to have a little movement spree. First thing in the morning is one of them, I get the hunger growls and before I know it she’s kicking me as if to say ”Mother I’m hungry, eat!” Once I’ve eaten she calms down and goes back to sleep for a couple of hours before I again get a few little jabs.
