Fabulous Friday

Happy Fabulous Friday everyone. Once again, Friday is here in the blink of an eye. However, I’m very excited to say what is most fabulous about today is progress!

Reality sets in

I have come to the conclusion that there is no sound on Earth more beautiful than the sound of your baby’s heartbeat. It’s a nothing sound really – just a thumpity thumpity thump. But to me, it’s a Beethoven symphony.

A conception-aversary

A year ago today I conceived Peanut. That one moment in time was the catalyst that set my life on a whole new trajectory that has led me here. Where a year later, I get to hear the sound of the life growing inside me.

The pregnancy belly rub

I had a flash of awareness yesterday – I’ve officially started the pregnancy belly rub!

Week 18 - insomnia, cramps and cupcakes!

My 18th week is off to a bang with insomnia, cramps and cupcakes! The cupcakes were the best part!

Fabulous Friday

Happy Fabulous Friday all. My day has been crazy busy so only a short and sweet one today, but I couldn't let Fabulous Friday go without posting something!

Fur babies

Just as I suspected, my cat found the bassinette. Hence why we were smart enough to cover it. I know lots of people call their dogs and cats their "fur babies" but I've never been one of these people!

Deciphering baby's first kicks

So figuring out if you’re actually feeling baby kicks when you’re only 17 weeks pregnant is quite a challenge. Other than the full on kick, the feeling you get can be easily passed off as a range of different things. For those of you who are riding the pregnancy train behind me, here’s what I know about deciphering baby’s first kicks.

As the weeks go by

Assuming Sticky doesn’t come early, her arrival is 149 days away. It seems like a long time but I now have a list of events to help me break it up. I’ve got about 21 weeks to go and weeks seem far less daunting than days so I’m sticking with that!

17 weeks pregnant

I’m 17 weeks today which means Sticky can now hear what’s going on around her. Poor thing – that means she’ll now hear my terrible singing but seeming as I sing a lot, she’d best get use to it!

Fabulous Friday - the kicks begin

I do believe that today is the best Fabulous Friday ever. Why? Because today is the day that Sticky decided to start kicking! Yep, I now have either a little soccer player or ballerina wriggling around inside of me!

122 days and counting

I’m having one of those days where the next 122 days can’t come fast enough. That’s how many days I have left until I finish work!

16 weeks pregnant - baby steps

16 weeks today. Officially 4 months. Even though they are exactly the same, 4 months sounds better to me.  I guess thinking 4 months out of 9 seems more bearable then 16 weeks out of 40!

Fabulous Friday

Happy Fabulous Friday all. I don’t know about you but this week has gone ridiculously fast. Which is totally fine with me. One of the things that makes today so fabulous is the fact Friday is already here!

The hips are getting bigger

Yesterday, one of the girls at work commented on the fact my hips had got bigger. The funny thing was, I had only just noticed it myself. I had no idea that your hips grew in pregnancy but it makes sense – room has to be created somehow for the baby to fit in there. To my surprise thought, I’m actually noticing benefits to having wider hips!

Travelling the baby road

I’ve suddenly realised I am surrounded by a rather large group of women who are all at various pitt stops along the baby road. I’m amazed by the fact that when it comes to bringing babies into the world, it doesn’t matter what stage you’re at, there is always something that can bring you down.

Pregnancy pimples and other pleasantries

I knew it was only a matter of time. I knew they were there just lurking under the surface. I knew they would pop their ugly little heads up one day and that day has arrived. Hello pregnancy pimples!

15 weeks - the art of surrender

15 weeks – To celebrate the first day of my new week, my old friend nausea visited me today. It only lasted for about an hour this morning, but it was enough to make me slump and think here we go again. That thought only lasted a brief second until I remembered a post my friend put on Facebook over the weekend. It was all about surrender, and upon reading it, I realised that’s what I need to do.

Fabulous Friday

Aloha to Fabulous Friday all. I hope you’re having as Fabulous a day as what I am. Despite being tired, flat strapped at work and feeling a little off colour, the day is still great! One must embrace these moments when they arrive as they are so fleeting!

The power of a heartbeat

I had my 14 week check-up with the obstetrician today. I laid there nervously as he put the doppler on my tummy trying to find Sticky’s heartbeart. Suddenly, we could hear it thumping away and I instantly felt all of my anxiety melt away.
