Life, Love & Laughter #2

A few loves, a little bit of life and a lot of laughs...

Hearing baby's heartbeat has to be up there as one of the loveliest sounds in the world. It never fails to reassure my worries and really hit home that there is actually a little bean taking up residence in my tummy. I recorded it at my 21 week check up this week and it was lovely to share the moment with my family...I would post the video on here but I don't fancy showing off the full extend of my stomach tissue mass on the internet. See I do have boundaries.

Things I Wish I'd Known When I Was 18...

If I could go back to being any age it would be 18. As important as that year was in shaping my future, taking A-levels, working, driving tests and what not, it was probably the most fun, carefree year of my life. I had an amazing group of friends, the world was my oyster and I was absolutely loving life. Settling into my second year of A-levels surrounded by an eclectic mix of brilliantly talented and funny people everyday was pretty darn fun.

Beware...Irrational & Irritable Woman Coming Through!

People joke about hormonal women, but I'd just like to point out here that we never get in a tizz over nothing. Oh no, there is always a perfectly good reason as to why we are sent into an emotional, and seemingly unreasonable, stark raving bonkers flame of rage. But this week it would appear that my hormones were a tad more sensitive than usual. At one point I had to take a moment to ask myself: "who is this person?" This crazy woman who can go from being as cool as a cucumber to a red faced foul mouthed monster in the space of a nano-second? Who is she?

#MyMumTaughtMe...with New Look

I could write a book about the things my mum has taught me and with the countdown now on to becoming a mum, one starts to think a lot about the sort of parent you'd like to become when that day finally comes around. You can't help but reflect on how you were brought up, thinking of all the things you want to do the same, or differently, but all with the same goal of becoming a good parent. But there is one aspect of parenthood that I really hope to achieve one day and that's the friendship part of parenthood. It's something a lot of parents never quite muster, but for others, like my mum, becoming a friend to your children can seem so effortless.

First Trimester Survival Guide...

The first trimester of pregnancy can be really tough. Whilst some ladies breeze through it, others have minor bursts of symptoms here and there and then there are those who are hit with a brick wall of placenta making side effects that can literally suck the life out of you. I was the latter. When I wasn't sleeping, I was sleep walking. When I didn't have my head down a toilet, it would be in a sink, a bush or scarf. Yep that happened- twice. But even in my worst state, I constantly reminded myself that this was all a good sign that Baby Bean was cooking away, nesting smugly in his/her hammock.

You Want To Spend How Much On A Pram...?!

...Was the Hubster's reaction when I showed him a couple of transportation systems for our precious little growing bean. This was shortly followed by a few words (one beginning with the letter F, that I can't really disclose here, I wouldn't want to lower the tone) along with a lot of head shaking as he walked out the room.
