The Heat!

Getting big!

And I mean really big. Like having to pick up momentum to roll out of bed big. It’s an adjustment. Loving my bump and my little active monkey though. He’s recently taken a liking to a position right on top of my bladder. Feels like he’s using it as a trampoline. It’s quite a strange

Almost There

11 weeks tomorrow and a step closer to the relief. No change since the last post but not going to dwell on that. I’m excited to see the end of the first trimester not only for the relief (please let there be relief) but also to allow myself to get excited. My husband and I

Pregnancy Is Hard!

The excitement of being pregnant has been dulled slightly by the current attack on my senses. You know, you read about the symptoms… backache, breast tenderness and nausea to name a few and you say to yourself “yeah ok, I’m ready. I can do that”. What you are not prepared for is doing “that” all
