The end of pregnancy and finding out some amazing news

Hi Everybody,

So its official im overdue :( so yesterday was my due date and still no sign of baby, me and Decarlo are getting super impatient now waiting for this little one to arrive. You would not believe how draining it is in the last bit of pregnancy, you would think because ive stopped working and ive got all this time to myself i would have so much energy but im the exact opposite! Ive been sleeping really bad, mainly due to noisy neighbours and the baby pushing down on my bladder, so ive been getting up at stupid times of the morning recently so by lunch time i need an afternoon nap! So now were just taking each day as it comes and hoping that today might be the day the baby arrives, one thing we do know for sure is it will come over the next 2 weeks as they only let you go up to a certain point as it starts to become dangerous for you and baby!

Here are some pictures from our recent baby bump photo shoots that we did, this was shot on Gwithian beach with a photographer called Clive Anderton - here is a link to see all of the pictures

Anyway on to the amazing news! So me and Decarlo moved into a flat August last year and its only one bedroom, so now were having a baby were looking at moving elsewhere, and i would like to live closer to my family as were a 30 min drive away at the moment which is not going to be great with a newborn! So yesterday we got the news that the house we have been waiting for will be ready the beginning of May! So just over a month to go were super excited! Its only a 5 min drive away from my family which is ideal and its closer to the rugby club for Decarlo! So were spending these days packing a few bits away that we arnt going to use between now and then as it will be super hectic moving with a month old baby! Im so excited its a three bedroom house with a conservatory and a garden with a little shed! Im going to try and persuade Decarlo to let me have one of the bedrooms as a walk in wardrobe but we will see how that goes haha!

This year so far has been amazing and were only in March so i cant wait to see what the rest of the year brings! I hope you are all having a good year so far and it carries on being great for you! It wont be long and we will be thinking about Christmas presents and new years so make the most of each day whilst you can as life goes so quickly!

Anyway keep your fingers crossed for us that we dont have to wait too long for the little one! 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…
