Wish list #2

Today is a little wish list, There's lots of things I've been lusting after during June, so I thought I would share it with you. Before you start reading, I just want to remind you - this wish list is so random! there isn't a set theme or room for the stuff to go into. Its just things I have seen and fallen in love with. 


Letters #4

Dear my gorgeous little girl.
I can feel you kicking right now and it kind of inspired me to write this, you don't understand how loved you already are and you haven't even taken your first breathe yet. I still can't believe that your actually in there, you've been there 25 weeks now, It still doesn't feel real. 

I want you to know how much we fort for you, We went through 3 miscarriages, which were really tough. We'd lost hope when I fell pregnant with you, but i'm so thankful, and feel so blessed to have you. Especially after all the scares we went through to have you. Sometimes I feel a bit anxious about meeting you, and being a mother. Having the responsibility for another life seems a bit daunting. I'm worried i will fail you, or you wont be happy when you grow up and it will somehow be my fault. Your daddy always reassures me i'll be a good mum, and you'll love me, but it doesn't stop me worrying.

Bump update

How far along: 29 weeks
Total weight: I still haven't weighed myself.
Stretch marks: It's the same as last week really, I have a few but to be honest, they haven't got any worse, or bigger or darker which is a good sign.
Best moments this week: We had our 4D scan this week, I'm not going to reveal to much because I have a blog post coming up later in the week, With lots of pictures and information about the scan.
Miss anything: I miss the joy of eating. For my entire pregnancy, eating has been tainted by morning sickness, followed by indigestion. The biggest thing i look forward to after giving birth is eating as much as i like without worrying about regretting it later!

Things they forget to tell you when your pregnant

Being pregnant is made out to be such a fabulous thing, you feel that little baby growing inside you. Focused on buying/finding that perfect outfit. It never occurs to you that it might not be easy sailing. Here's a few things i found that no one told me about.

Bump touching
Something I really wasn't prepared for, I didn't think it would effect me as much as it does. Suddenly everyone feels like they have the right to rub and pat your growing belly. Excuse me but did I miss the memo about loosing my personal space? Honestly it's like my belly isn't attached to the rest of my body anymore. The smiling and touching of the belly soon makes the conversation very awkward. It's always such a weird situation to be in, What do you say? Where do you look? What do you do? Smile like a numpty and hope they stop - yeah got it in one. 

Holiday

So I'm writing this on Sunday, for Monday. While you're reading this i will be heading to sunny (hopefully) Hemsby. If you've never heard of Hemsby before it's a beautiful little seaside village in Norfolk, on the east coast of England. It's 5 miles north of Gt. Yarmouth. It's one of my Favourite places in England.


Letters #3

Dear, My husband-to-be

I know this year has been kind of a whirlwind, Our plans got changed, and stuff got tipped on its head. I just wanted to write this because I feel like I don't tell you enough, how much you really mean to me. I'm so proud to call you mine, I want you for the rest of my life. I'm not afraid for you to know that. 

I feel like you've made me into a better person, I know I sometimes take you for granted, but I really don't mean to. I'm disappointed that we had to postpone our wedding, But it was for a very good reason, our little lady came along and turned everything upside down, plus I really don't want to be waddling down the isle. It doesn't mean I love you any less, it just means I want the day to be absolutely perfect for us. 

Bump update

How far along: 28 weeks
Total weight: I still haven't weighed myself, I'm such a forgetful person
Stretch marks: I have a few appearing, but they're not that obvious, ill just keep applying moisturizer. 
Sleep: This week hasn't been to bad for sleeping, especially since we got a fan for my room, it's honestly been so much cooler in there. 
Best moments this week: Not much has really happened this week that's made me happy. I had a pretty down week. 

Bump update

How far along: 27 weeks
Total weight: still not sure :(
Stretch marks: I have a couple, but honestly they really don't bother me. Tiger stripes my nan refers to them as! 
Sleep: I'm still struggling to sleep, but Sam brought me a fan for the bedroom, which has honestly made all the difference!
Best moments this week: Finding a positive place in my own mind, I know its nothing baby related but it's the truth.

Dear, Our gorgeous baby
Today was such a exciting day, one both me and your daddy had been waiting for for ages. Everything went ok at your 12 week scan, which was definately a possitive thing. We just wanted to know if you were a little girl or a little boy. Obviously it's always been important to know if your ok, but deep down i'm secretly hoping your a little girl. I'm currently out numbered by boys, I'm more attracted to girls clothes then boys. I also have a feeling your going to be a little girl.

Life rambles

So this week has been the worst week of my life, I can honestly say i'm so looking forward to Friday. Sam comes back from working away all week on Friday encase you were wondering what I was on about. Why was this week so bad? I hear you ask, well let me tell you, I haven't felt so overwhelmed, upset, and anxious in quite sometime. Sadly, Anxiety never leaves you, I know its a popular assumption that it goes away, but it doesn't. You never get over it, and it never gets easier. I'm fed up of feeling the way I do, I wish I could change it but unfortunately I can't. I just have to live with it.

Bump update

How far along: 26 weeks
Total weight: I'm still not sure :(
Stretch marks: I have stretch marks appearing, I still haven't managed to find a stretch mark cream/moisturiser that doesn't contain almond oil. So i'm sticking to my normal one for now.
Sleep: This week i'm really struggling with sleep, I can't seem to get comfortable, and its to hot. I feel like a whale, and my bump isn't even that big! 
Best moments this week: Finally deciding on the bedding i wanted for Baby E, and actually purchasing it! I found that making the decision was quite liberating. I might have to make these decisions more often. 
*you can find the post on baby E's bedding here.*
Miss anything: I miss having the option of having a cider with my other half at night. I'm not really a big drinker, but sometimes it's just nice to sit and have a strawberry and lime kopparberg, which i obviously can't do at the moment, makes it harder that it's nearly summer!

Bedding

I finally got the courage to make a decision on the bedding, I was torn between a couple of different sets. We went to have a look at a few different ones, I wasn't planning on actually buying it, but how could I resist? It was so damn cute, It looked so much better in the store then it did online. Then came the excitement, my other half sighed, he knew that i'd found the one. 

The one I picked had a totally vintage feel to it, which I absolutely loved, I purchased the Vintage love and kisses range from Toys r us.
