    37-39 Weeks Pregnancy Journals

    Here we are with the last installment of the pregnancy journals. next time you hear from me in regards to my pregnancy I will have a little baby to show off to you all. If you’re wondering why I’ve stopped at 39 weeks for the journals it’s because on the day that I actually turn 39 weeks pregnant I will be prepping for my C-Section waiting for my baby to be put in my arms.  I am contemplating writing why I’m to have a C-Section but the whole prospect of putting it out there on the internet is terrifying to me, but I will be uploading my birthing story and…

    Pregnancy Journals 32-36

    Wow, my second to last Pregnancy Journals post. How am I here already? I don’t even know myself, the time has flown so quickly, I’m glad i’ve kept an online journal of everything i’ve experienced because I start to qustion whether any of it actually happened and still to this day now being 32 weeks, almost 33 weeks pregnant I’m like am I really actually pregnant? Even though there’s  very wriggly baby in my belly telling me that it’s real every single day. Sponge is still something that I absolutely need in my life. I don’t ingest it, I just chew it for the sensation and texture on my tongue,…

    Pregnancy Journals Weeks 27-31

    I’ve been terribly bad at keeping track of the weeks again but honestly, at this point in pregnancy I feel as though all the weeks are literally just rolling into one. If it wasn’t for my pregnancy app I wouldn’t even know how many weeks I was. Up until 27 weeks I’ve had no cravings at all, however as I turned 27 weeks it was like a switch had been switched and all of a sudden all I wanted was to shove a sponge in my mouth. It’s not that I want to ingest it however, chewing it and just mangling it in my mouth was more than enough to…

    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 pregnancy journals. I’ve not been writing snippets weekly simply because nothing really changed to write about and it was hard to find the words to make this post that little bit more interesting but now I have a bit to talk. I went into my 23rd week with a cold. The one thing I spent the entirety of my pregnancy so far avoiding, germs. All was…

    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…

    13-16 Weeks Pregnancy Journal

    Week 13 Food, food, food and more food. I’ve had a lot of anxiety this week following my last appointment but asides from that my spirits have been high and I’ve been feeling a lot more like myself during this period. During week 13 I also had an appointment with a consultant about a planned c-section for reasons I’m not yet ready to disclose online. My mind was finally put at rest about any worries I was having and I had a rough idea of how things would be going. I was told I’d only be allowed one birthing partner, obviously my husband and that anyone else would be required…

    How Do You Know When You’re Ready For Kids?

    Growing up it was easy to say that you’re going to have kids, everyone wants to play mummies and daddies with their baby dolls. I always promised my family when I was a little one that I wouldn’t have kids until I was 25. I’ve seen and said goodbye to 25 and yet I still have no babies but how do you really know when you’re ready for kids? As you get older, the concept of having kids becomes a lot more real and you understand the implications and responsibilities that come with it, it’s not as easy as just playing mummies and daddies in the back garden with your…
