To say I'm overwhelmed would be an understatement. I still can't believe we're less than 24 hours away from meeting our new baby. Even though this is our third baby, this time is so much different. I think it's because we know exactly when baby is coming. I feel more nervous, excited, worried, anxious now … Continue reading Last day of being pregnant
Gosh, I seriously couldn't remember what I needed to put in this bag guys. Here's hoping I got it right. Nappies - I'm looking forward to using the Huggies New Baby nappies. These bad boys have a cut out for the umbilical cord, which I absolutely love! Cotton Wool - this is used to clean … Continue reading What’s in my baby’s hospital bag?
You'd think that having done this twice before I'd know what to pack from the top of my head. With it being 3 years since Ethan was born, I've forgotten quite a bit more than I thought I would. Also, with this being my first "elective" c-section, packing my hospital bag is a liiiiittle bit … Continue reading What’s in my hospital bag? Packing for a c-section
With the cost of baby things these days, Mark and I decided not to sell or give away a lot of the boys' baby stuff. We've borrowed things to friends and received a lot of it back. We're still using the things that we bought when we were pregnant with Matthew with this pregnancy/baby. So … Continue reading My ultimate newborn wishlist
So it’s been another break between posts. Can’t believe 3 weeks have passed since I last posted. Guess it’s time for another update. Pregnancy I’m 2 and a bit weeks away from meeting our newest family member. These last few weeks have been a bit tough though. I’ve been suffering with super uncomfortable Braxton hicks, … Continue reading 8 months pregnant and an update
I don't know why I have such long gaps between posting updates. Not much to say? Probably. Focusing on family and the pregnancy more? Most likely. Struggling to juggle all the balls and still keep on track of everything? Definitely! I'm sorry to everyone that comes back here looking for something new. I keep hoping … Continue reading What’s been happening?
Disclaimer: this post was written in collaboration with Abbott Nutrition With just a few more weeks until our bubs is in our arms, I’ve started thinking about what life is going to be like after this pregnancy. Life with 3 children. What did I get myself into?!?! Oh well, too late for that. I had … Continue reading Preparation for birth and breastfeeding
Wow it's been 2 weeks since my last post! There's not much going on in our lives, I guess that's why it's been so quiet around here. School holidays are almost over and Matthew had a few outings in the 3 weeks. He went to watch Cars 3 at the cinema with his dad. Got … Continue reading School holidays almost over???
I’ve written so many posts in my mind. I have ideas floating around in there that I forget to write down. The part I’m struggling with? Is getting it from my mind to my computer, making my fingers work with my brain to coordinate those stories and pictures into words that you the story of … Continue reading The “perfect” post (not)
Forgetfulness For much of the day, I forget that I'm pregnant. I mean, really, who forgets that they're carrying a life beneath their heart? Then I get a little sucker punch from the inside out the blue. And I have to take a moment, stop what I'm doing and just watch. I'll watch and I'll … Continue reading Sucker punches and trying to find unisex clothing
