The day before the due date we decided to book into a caravan park down by the beach to have a little holiday in our new … Continue reading Birth Story – Bear.
Well been months since I last updated about my pregnancy! I am currently 37 weeks and SO READY TO HAVE THIS BABY. I'll be honest, pregnancy hasn't been my most favourite experience in life.. it is HARD. WORK. I still throw up roughly 4 times a week and need tablets to make me stop.

It was a Tuesday and my mum came with me. Debbie asked how I was and how I'd coped the last few weeks. Then she … Continue reading The Result.
was 1993, when I was 4 years old, my Aunty Annie (mum's sister) was diagnosed with breast cancer (bc). I can remember my mum going into a different room with her to help change her dressings.

It's from Belinda Jeffery's Mix and Bake. She … Continue reading Best Zucchini Slice ever.
After quite a few requests on Instagram, I decided to track a standard day of eating. This is definitely not how I eat everyday as pregnancy cravings and just lack of time/organisation/laziness ensure slip ups! But when I have my prep done and I'm not feeling like the toilet bowl is my best friend.. 😐 … Continue reading A Day of Eating.
As of today I am 23 weeks and 1 day! Whaaaat! I feel like time is going so.slowly. However, sitting here, reflecting over the past 20 weeks, while being pummelled from the inside, I realise that actually, it has gone pretty fast. I hadn't vomited in THREE WHOLE DAYS! I was feeling pretty stuck up … Continue reading Second Trimester (so far).
At 15 weeks and 2 days I felt my baby move for the first time. I was 95% sure at the time that that's what I'd felt. I knew that it was a bit early for a first baby however I'm so in tune with my body after the miscarriages that I pretty much … Continue reading Feeling baby’s first kick.
