28 Week Growth Scan

On Friday I had my 28 week growth scan, I was offered one due to my Epilepsy because my medication can lead to low birth weight in the baby. I was looking forward to the scan because it was a chance to see the baby again and to see if it I was growing a giant baby. What was also exciting about this scan is that E was getting to come with us due to being on her school holidays, she was very excited about getting to see the baby. Luckily we didn’t have to wait long for the scan when I arrived for the appointment, E was kept occupied by the fish tank until we were called in. Once in there I explained to E that she would have to sit with daddy and if she watched the big screen she would see the baby. The sonographer was a really lovely… View Post

Photo Friday – Another Busy Week

It seems like this last week has been quite a busy week, not all of it has been exciting but nether the less it has been busy. Last weekend we were out and about sorting things ready for turning the ‘spare room’ into E’s new bedroom so as to make space for the new arrival. This week has also been the first week of the school holidays for E, we have survived it so far but I have missed having some time to myself, I have to get used to that again anyway… The start of the week was E’s preschool leavers party at our local soft play centre, it was manic to say the least, around 60 children, parents and the keyworkers equates to a lot of noise and mayhem. E had a great time with all her friends, they put on some party food which she thought was… View Post

A Picture says a Minion Words!

The world has gone Minion crazy on the run up and during the release of the new minions film at the cinema. The little cute, funny, sometimes annoying minions keep popping up everywhere and everyone seems to love them, including E. Recently we were asked if we wanted to be part of a #oneinaminion campaign which involves minion merchandise and of course lots of photos as we all know that a picture tells a minion words! To create some wonderful photos that are full of all things minion, Asda kindly sent us a selection of items – all of which we love. Asda have a great range of minions goodies that would keep people of all ages happy. Take a look at the minion goodies on offer here. We were sent an awesome Sea of Minions beanbag, a fab minions straw, a set of men’s pyjamas, some woman’s pyjama bottoms and… View Post

Bump Watch 27 Weeks

Wow week 27 already, hello third trimester! I’m not entirely sure if it’s week 27 or week 28 when you enter the third trimester as I keep reading different things everywhere, however I’d like to think it’s week 27 so I’m going with that! The time really has flown by, the next 13 weeks need to slow down a little as we are nowhere near ready for its arrival yet. The second trimester is known for being the best bit of pregnancy apparently, because you’re not massive and sore and stuff just yet, and you have marginally more energy than in the first and third trimesters. I say “apparently” because those benefits passed me by completely. I have just felt tired quite a lot. This week the baby is the size of a cauliflower and weighs around 2 lbs and is around 14.5 inches long.  baby might start to open… View Post
