Mom’s Blog

Leading on from my last blog, I can now officially announce that we are having a baby boy! We are so happy and excited and so are our family! At our last appointment, our gynea told us that we had a hooligan on our hands......

This is my second week back at work, as I am a Grade 3 school teacher, so I thoroughly enjoyed my 3 week break! Early mornings are seeming to get harder as each one approaches, and I have to convince myself each and every morning......

It’s so true when they tell you that pregnant women are like sponges sucking up every last drop of information! I have just finished my 14th week of pregnancy and am addicted to every mommy & pregnancy blog, medical article and magazine I can find......

We are currently going through a heat wave and it is brutal! I cannot seem to regulate my body temperature. I’m too hot and when I attempt to cool down by getting into the pool I get too cold. It is incredibly frustrating. At times......

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......

Finally!! So excited to welcome our little boy into the world. It feels more real now that we can stop calling the baby “it”. Now to get the house ready for little Benjamin! I don’t know if I’ll lose mommy points but I haven’t even......

This baby is so active. So much kicking and flipping. It’s quite impressive! I’ve been trying to get my husband to feel with no success but 2 days ago he felt a kick!! It was such a precious moment. It felt so good to share......

I don’t even know how I’m going to cope with a bigger belly. Sitting down, bending over and putting on shoes has started to become a bit cumbersome. Sleeping comfortably is also a challenge. I currently have a little pillow fort on my side of......

Feels so good to have broken the news! Babies just bring so much joy into the world. It’s funny but it still doesn’t feel real even after telling people. Hasn’t yet sunk in that we are having a baby. Don’t judge me, I’ll get 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......

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”.......

I recetly spoke to a friend who is in her mid thirties and not really interested in starting a family although her husband is super keen. Why I ask? Because all of us ‘married with children’ are often so grumpy about sleep deprivation and how......

Medical appointments are becoming an increasingly frustrating part of our lives as a family. The thing is, the more people I talk to the more I hear are experiencing the same long waiting room waits. I recently had a fetal assessment appointment that i waited......

For many of us planning and obtaining the kind of birth we’d like requires a bit more ‘homework’ and extra perseverance. I interviewed a friend who really wanted a natural birth after she had had a caesarian with her first baby. By the way…‘VBAC’ means ‘Vaginal......

I promised I’d share more about myself so here goes…    As I told you I am a mom of three small children (firstborn son almost 4 and twin girls almost 2 years). In December we had a rather unexpected but happy surprise, number 4......
