Pregnancy - Third trimester

Hi all Lydia Anne here again..

So I thought id put up a little post about being in your third trimester of pregnancy for anyone out there that's in the same position as me! So im currently 32 weeks.. 8 weeks to go till the big day I cant wait! Im currently feeling very tired and fed up I feel like a humungous whale (I may not look it to others as I have a very petite build) my boobs (excuse the rudeness) are so incredibly sore, and the babys head is pushing down so it feels like ive got terrible period pains! What is the positive in this you may ask? Well at the end im going to have a beautiful creature in my arms that is mine, that I created! How exciting is that? Me and Decarlo cannot wait to meet our little one and to be parents for the first time, to experience sleepless nights and to fill our ears with crying and laughter.

If you are feeling the same as me and fed up and cant wait for your pregnancy to be over, then just remember there is a light at the end of the tunnel and your going to have something absolutely amazing at the end of it!

If you have any tips for new mums and how to deal with the above problems please leave a comment below as im sure we will all appreciate it! In the next few months I will be blogging about baby products that I love as its always helpful to hear from someone that has tried the product! Anyway im off to get some beauty sleep now!

Speak soon!

Visiting Santa at Trevena Cross Nurseries

Today we took Eloise to visit Santa at Trevena Cross Nurseries in Breage, Cornwall. We took her last year when she was a lot

younger and it was great, but it was even better this year!

They had a little market on selling stuff from local businesses, like jewelry, bread, cheese, photos, crafts etc.

Then they had the santas grotto which is amazing, as your in the que they brought round chocolates, then there was a snow globe which you could stand behind and have a photo which looked amazing! There was also a enormous polar bear and fake snow and a talking owl and post box which is amazing for the kids.

Going there was free, and it only cost £5 to go and visit santa but the money goes to there chosen charities. When you go into the actual grotto there is a fantastic display of lights and status of animals, before you see father christmas so its a lovely experience. Then at the end you get to choose your own present from santa so theres stuff to suit all ages. This year Eloise chose a toy…

Lets talk - Mum guilt

So as im writing this im sat in bed winding down ready to go to sleep, and all i can think about is what an awful job ive done today as a mum, ive not played with her enough, ive let her eat too much junk food, ive been on my phone too much, i havnt taken her out today, ive been too busy cleaning and not paying her attention, the list is endless.

And im wondering is this normal? Does every mum feel like this? Well i ended up posting in a mum group and i realised i am not alone! Which is why i wanted to write this blog post so if you reading this are in the same situation and you find yourself in bed every night feeling guilty then dont worry because we all are. 

One thing im going to try and do to make myself feel better is structure a loose timetable for the day, just a simple plan of what we are doing etc. So things like, walk into town in the morning, have lunch then do some arts and crafts in the afternoon, followed by tea, bath time and bedtime. Then at least i can go to bed thinki…

Breastfeeding - My story

So Eloise is coming up to two years old soon, and i will be having baby number two in a few months which has recently got me thinking about breastfeeding again, and i soon realized i never shared my experience with anyone.

When Eloise was born i really wanted to breastfeed but i was open minded that if i struggled i would just go on to formula and not put a lot of pressure on myself to breastfeed her! Eloise was in neonatal for the first 24 hours after her birth and so they ga

ve her formula through a feeding tube that went in her nose to start with while i rested, but about 5 hours or so after her birth they said i could go in and try her on my breast if i wanted to. Previous to that i sat in my hospital bed trying my very hardest to express what colostrum i had so i could give her all the good stuff to go along with her formula to try and help her get her strength up after a traumatic birth.

I was so incredibly nervous as i had no idea what to do, i was very lucky and she pretty muc…
