Baby Gift Guide and Useful Items for Mums

In 8 weeks time our new baby girl will be here. This pregnancy has gone so much faster than the first. Maybe it’s because I’m running around after a 2 year old. These past few weeks I’ve been putting together this baby gift guide and useful items for mums. There are ideas of things to buy a newborn for a…

The Sunday Pregnancy Diaries: #5

Hello, here I am again with another Sunday pregnancy diary entry. Last week’s was all about organising my maternity leave through work. This week I had the pleasure of going to have a Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT) done as I’m at the 26 weeks mark. I had one a couple of years ago with baby girl and the results were…

The Sunday Pregnancy Diaries #4

Welcome back to my next installment of The Sunday Pregnancy Diaries #4. You can catch up with last weeks here. This week sees me at 25 weeks so only 15 weeks until my due date. To be honest because I’m having the baby at 39 weeks as planned the due date doesn’t mean much to me at the moment. Anyway…

The Sunday Pregnancy Diaries #3

It’s been nearly a month since my last update. Now I’m at the 24 week stage.  Although I still haven’t seen my midwife, that’s not until the end of the month when I’m 28 weeks. I have been in to see a consultant. He went over the details of my last pregnancy with baby girl. It’s funny as I don’t…

Planning a Nursery for a New Arrival

I remember planning a nursery for baby girl, in our old house. Now baby number 2 is on the way and we are in a new house I’m going to start all over again. It’s a little too soon to find out what we are having, but it would be easier if it’s a girl due to all the girly…

The Sunday Pregnancy Diaries #1

I have something to share with you all. I’m pregnant with baby b number 2! This time we got pregnant so quickly, in fact within a month of trying. Why couldn’t it have been this easy first time around? It took us 3 years to get baby girl. We are so excited and I still cannot quite believe it, but…

How Can One Person Be So Unlucky At Conceiving?

*Trigger Warning*` As I’m writing this I’m having yet another suspected miscarriage. Last Wednesday I found the courage to take a pregnancy test. I was 4 days late, I knew something was up as I had been feeling rubbish for the past few days. If you don’t know my history I had 3 miscarriages before baby girl was born in…

As you know I’m always up for trying out new products and this past weekend we have been trying out these great bamboo disposable nappies, (or diapers if you prefer!) from a wonderful little family orientated company called Andy Pandy based in the US. They specialise in eco-friendly baby products. They are on sale in the UK at the moment…

Bibetta Star Changing Mat Review

Baby girl is growing quite big now, so having a standard size changing mat is not as useful as it used to be. When Bibetta asked me if I would like to try out their Star Changing Mat which is on the larger side to normal, I thought why not? My first impressions was that it’s very soft and warm…

Goodness Gracious Baby Food Review

I love to give baby girl fruit puree’s. We started on them on our weaning journey many months ago. They gave me a piece of mind knowing she couldn’t choke, and also that she was getting her daily intake of fruit. I can honestly say we have probably tried most puree’s on sale, until we were offered to try out…

After all, you are getting to know your newborn and trying to adjust to your new life. By the time you manage to get into some form of routine, it’s…
