When booking my 40 week check up I was certain that we wouldn't need it! But the days went by and there was absolutely zero movement at the station! 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.

I was feeling pretty stuck up … Continue reading Second Trimester (so far).

I was able to go to the gym everyday up until roughly 6 weeks when the sickness started. I went once or twice after that but pretty much almost passed out … Continue reading First Trimester.
.....hello! I have literally zero idea where to start really. I'm not a writer, AT ALL. So please don't judge my skills, or lack thereof. It's early winter here at the moment, so cold and raining outside. I'm currently wrapped in a blanket, sitting on the couch in my little lounge room, in my little … Continue reading My first blog..
