Hospital Bag Essentials – take 2

Right, I’ve had sooooo many people messaging me on various platforms asking me for my updated hospital bag essentials list. I did use my initial list as a starting point as well, it was a bloody good list! Similar to last time, I’ve packed and unpacked the bags (yes, bags) several times. This is mainly…

34 week bumpdate (#2)

K so, I’ve been extremely shit with keeping up the pregnancy updates with this second pregnancy. I wasn’t that great with Baxter either even though that was what started this blog off. 34 weeks and 2 days today, 5 weeks 5 days remaining. H O L Y – S H I T. This pregnancy has…

Second time around – what I’d do differently

Second time round I am going into this whole experience with so much more knowledge than when I was pregnant with Baxter and well, knowledge is power – right? I will not allow myself to feel bullied, judged or pressured into anything. I’ll have my tin of formula in my hospital bag if I’m having…

27 weeks and a wee life update

Reuben said to me last night “you need some new content”. The sad thing is, he’s right. Life has been so insanely busy as of late that I really haven’t set aside time to blog as much as I would have liked. I’ll be honest, I’ve set aside NO time. As I’m sure you’ve been…

Birth story

I really wished I’d written notes about my birth earlier as 10 weeks on is not the most ideal time to recollect it, whilst the labor itself feels like a blur now I will do my best to remember the details. To put things into perspective, my due date was the 28th of August. I…

The truth about pregnancy

I’ve always been a little weary about being too vocal in regards to how shit I’m feeling while I am pregnant. I know there are people out there struggling to conceive or who simply cannot have children so please know this blog is not intended to upset or offend anybody. I’ve seen celebrities and public…

Week 17 // # 2

I’ve just realised I’ve barely made any updates in regards to my second pregnancy aside from the announcement itself. So if you missed it.. yes, I am pregnant (again!). Baby is due in April. I am currently 17 weeks and this pregnancy has been nothing like the first. I am not sure if that’s just…

We’re doing it all over again…

Yes, we had so much fun with Baxter, we’re doing it all over again! Reuben and I are having another baby! Due in April 2017. I’ve just announced it on the page and thank god because it was getting hard to hide. I am 13w3d today and am starting to show already, the joys of…

Newborn essentials

When it came time to start buying baby goods I had NO idea where to start and as usual the internet was full of outdated and overseas lists. Since having gone through it I feel I am in a better position to make my own list which some of you may find helpful. My Hospital…

Acceptance

I still don’t think I have really come to terms with my new body, I’ve written about my stretch marks before and while it’s easy to adopt the attitude ‘out of sight, out of mind’ – they are definitely not out of mind. I am wanting to put Baxter into swimming lessons, my partner hates water/swimming…

I earned my stripes

I heard a quote the other day.. “For every woman who hates her stretch marks there is a woman wishing she had them”. It really got me thinking. Thinking about the new body I have. I spoke a bit about it here back in November when Baxter was less than 3 months old. Whilst I am…

My hospital stay

6 months on and I remember it like it was yesterday. My hospital stay was fucking horrible and I hated every moment. Once Baxter was born I was whisked away into the postnatal wards and they said to my partner “you need to go now”. Um, say what? Are you fucking kidding me? I’ve just…
