Emily has a comforter called brown bunny, you may have seen it appear on my blog many times. She has a medium pink bunny, which she has had since birth – although at the time she wasn’t really interested in it. It was way too big for her to snuggle up to, and she used to get frustrated by it. When I went shopping I saw some smaller jellycat bunnies in the shop, only Emily spotted it at the same time as me and decided in that moment, brown bunny was coming home with us. She cried for the bunny when I tried to put it back and up until that point, I had never seen her get attached to something. So, I caved and let her have it. God forbid we forget bunny, or misplace it – who knew a child having a comforter could be so stressful. I honestly feel like I have another child!

Mood: I feel like a broken record whenever I do these pregnancy updates, as I always talk about my anxiety, but I promised I would be as honest as possible. I have been really struggling with anxiety this week, I hate being away from Sam, just because it makes me feel uneasy. I also hate going out because that makes me worry too. I'm not even sure what I'm anxious about, sometimes its just that feeling but I can't tell why I'm having it. I'm also experiencing quite a lot of pain, which could be another reason I am anxious.

Easter has been a little bit hectic for us, we did our usual Easter egg hunt, at Sam’s mums this year. Then decided it would be a good idea to decorate Emily’s bedroom, move it all around and put up her new bunk beds up. Sam had four days off so it seemed like the perfect opportunity and a good use of his time off. Let me assure you – it’s not a good idea to try and put 60+ self-tap in screws, into a bed when you are 7 months pregnant. By the time, we finished her bedroom I was absolutely wiped out. I am really happy with it, and it is one less job for us to do though.

Mood: My mood has been very up and down recently. I would say more down than up, but I'm trying to stay as positive as I can - which is a lot harder than it seems. I have never hid the fact I have anxiety, and it seems the more pregnant I get the more anxious I become. This in itself has made it extremely hard to be excited about anything baby related. While I am so excited for our family to be growing, and the fact we are having another little girl - I'm so anxious and scared of labour (because my labour with Emily was pretty horrific) that it is putting a dampner on everything. I kind of just want to get it over and done with, so I can meet her.
