*TRIGGER WARNING* If you have an eating disorder when you are skinny to begin with, you are ill and need help. If you have an eating disorder when you are 'fat' to begin with then you are congratulated on your weight loss. Growing up I was never a skinny child. I was rather plump looking… Continue reading An eating disorder when you are ‘fat’
Please don't stare at my screaming child, she's not naughty honestly. She's extremely worked up and finding it difficult to tell us this. She's angry, upset and so uncomfortable. She's covering her ears and screaming at the top of her voice, but she's not naughty...honest. She's not playing up to get her own way and… Continue reading Please don’t stare at my screaming child…
I've found these last few weeks a real struggle, not just pregnancy related but mentally and physically too. I feel that I'm really slipping into old habits of lacking in motivation and energy. I do admit this could all be down to just generally being tired and in pain and it all influencing each other… Continue reading Pregnancy Diary Baby Number 2: Week 27 & 4D Scan!
This week I have officially began nesting (incredibly early!) I also discovered the amazing Mrs Hinch this week and honestly my life is completely changed. Admittedly it hasn't helped with my urge to nest but I suppose there is nothing wrong with wanting to clean? I may do a completely different post on my nesting… Continue reading Pregnancy Diary Baby Number 2: Week 23

But after 2 weeks of tests, a very sore and nerve-wracking amniocentesis and lots of waiting we have thankfully been given… Continue reading Pregnancy Diary Baby Number 2: Week 22 & GENDER REVEAL!
I don't quite think I've come to grips with writing these pregnancy updates again yet and this pregnancy still doesn't feel real! Every pregnancy is so different and this one is no exception, it's such a different experience to what I've previously had and it's going so fast this time; kind of hoping that continues… Continue reading Pregnancy Diary Baby Number 2: Week 19
*baby loss & miscarriage trigger warning* Every pregnancy is filled with worries and woes, I can vouch for this. Even though loss and disaster can happen at any point during or after pregnancy my particular anxieties generally revolve around the long, daunting and much dreaded first trimester. Personally this is when all of my losses… Continue reading The Worst Is Over: The First Trimester.
I'm back! Its been almost 5 months since I last posted on here and even before then, I've really lacked in consistent and regular blog posts. I think this last year of being a mother has been filled with so many moments and really kept me on my toes; not only that but I moved… Continue reading Pregnancy Diary Baby Number 2: Week 18
It's came to my attention (not that I couldn't not acknowledge it) that it's almost one year into being a mother to a living baby. In my personal opinion you are a mother the moment you have a positive test and there is a baby invading your womb. And 2 losses in I still considered… Continue reading *Almost* One Year Of Being Mother To A Living Baby
