Baby Shopping Bug…

Yes. I have the Baby Shopping Bug. Badly.  I want ALL the things! ALL OF THEM!  I’m 22 weeks so still a while to go yet, but I mean, I SHOULD BE PREPARED! IT’S ONLY SENSIBLE!!  My theme is grey and white stars. Give yourself a moment to gush and ooh and aah.  Obviously I don’t know what I’m having so it’s a nice neutral option and goes well with my ever growing grey obsession.  Here’s what I’ve achieved so far –  The changing unit.  IT’S SOOOO PRETTY!  This is from Baby Elegance and the RRP is €99.99. Don’t forget I’m running a competition on Facebook to win either one […]

Pregnancy Symptoms Half Way Through…

Itchy Belly – Oh the itchiness. Nothing like a good scratch of it. The bigger it gets, the itchier it’s getting. As attractive as it sounds!  Inflatable Boobs – I may always have complained about them but to honest I’d take my respectable little B cups back in a heartbeat. In the unlikely event I get stranded in water over the next few months these should keep me afloat fairly easily.  Permanent Need To Pee – It’s constant. And let’s face it, if you’ve had kids you’ll know that when you need to go, you NEED to go. Now. The fear when I sneeze or cough is real and there […]

Pregnancy update – 19 weeks…

Today I’m 19 weeks and 5 days pregnant.  I would say my bump is fairly big. I’m 5 ft nothing and very slight so there’s no questioning it really.  And obviously being Baby no. 3 I’m probably popping out quicker this time too.  I’ve been lucky. Other than getting a bit tired every now and again I’m grand.  I’ve been using Palmer’s Cocoa Butter on my belly for weeks already in the hope of avoiding stretch marks. I used it the last two times and wether it’s amazing or I just got lucky I don’t know, but I’m giving it a go again!  On my last visit at about 17 […]

17 Weeks Pregnancy Update…

Confessions Of An Irish Mammy pregnant

This is a different pregnancy to my last two. A lot different.  I don’t even mean in terms of symptoms. I was very lucky with all 3 (so far anyway!) Aside from a few weeks of queasiness in the early weeks and a few meals going down the loo I haven’t done too badly. (There were horrific migraines a the end of pregnancy 1 that I’m choosing to forget about)  It’s different because of the house move.  We’re in our new house 2 weeks today and it’s been the most hectic, stressful time of our lives without a doubt. When you move house you’re only thinking of getting in to […]
