It feels like I have been pregnant forever, well I am just 10 weeks away from a year long pregnancy so Lauren from Spud and Spike kindly pointed out to me….baby is still in the comfort of my womb, although there doesn’t appear to be much room for her any more. Every little movement is painful and […]

Pregnancy Diary: 41 Weeks. Overdue but the end is insight!

Dec 05, 2012 1 Comment by

I won’t lie, it can be rather depressing to not be here with my newborn bundle of gorgeousness. Lots of people due around the same time as me, and even some after, have had their babies already and yet I am still here with a big belly (and I am talking VERY big). So today […]

Baby on the way? Nope, maybe not…

Dec 04, 2012 2 Comments by

Yesterday afternoon my contractions started, they were manageable with breathing techniques but I thought as hospital was so far away that I better get assessed…the midwifes agreed. I got to the hospital after an hours drive and they found I was contracting, my cervix was 2cm dilated and nice and soft, central position. However, it wasn’t progressing much more. […]

I think I have been waiting long enough to meet my baby by now, but she clearly has other ideas. Despite never going into spontaneous labour, I was always holding on to that glimmer of hope that I might suddenly start contractions. But that tiny glimmer of hope is fading fast…clearly my body just doesn’t […]

So Wednesday was the midwife, and I was expecting nothing…and I got…… nothing. They checked the usual, measured my bump (measuring 41 weeks) checked position (not back to back, whoop!) and 4/5 engaged. But my iron levels are dangerously low. So low in fact, that they will not induce me until they are higher. I […]

Pregnancy Diary: 38 Weeks of fullness!

I write this from my birthing ball, the birthing ball that is currently the only place I find comfortable to sit. I have pains in my lower abdomen, but know that there is no point in getting my hopes up as I just don’t labour naturally. With all three of my children I have been induced, […]

Pregnancy Diary: Why I eat soap, yes really.

Nov 02, 2012 16 Comments

This is my fourth pregnancy and in the final few months of each one I have had the same cravings. Dove soap. Now before I start this tale of weirdness, let me tell you this post is not sponsored, I have received no free dove soap, but damn I have spent a lot of money on the […]

That means that there is 6 weeks left until my baby girl is due to enter the world, although I have been very relaxed about getting everything prepared for her, I am starting to realise that reality is that this pregnancy is very very different and I need to get on the ball…quite literally…let me […]

Pregnancy Diary: 30 weeks and totally disorganised.

Sep 15, 2012 1 Comment

I cannot believe I have hit 30 weeks pregnant with my fourth (and final) pregnancy. It has all flown by and with some much going on with moving house, kids starting school and going on holiday, I haven’t even given a thought to actually organising anything for the baby!!! . With all my previous pregnancies, […]
