32 Week Pregnancy Update

32 Week Pregnancy Update

Honestly, I feel a fraud writing my 32 week pregnancy update. Surely I’m still about 20 weeks?! But no, after checking, and rechecking the calendar, I am indeed 32 weeks pregnant. 8 weeks until that hallowed due date. 8 weeks to get prepared. I have definitely been my most lax in this pregnancy and baby has a grand total of two vests, bought from H&M in a panic as I felt mean I’d not yet purchased the poor thing anything….

The Scan Room Review – 3D/4D baby Scan

If you’ve read my previous pregnancy updates, you’ll have seen we arranged to have a scan at around 8 weeks in this pregnancy. I was so anxious to know if the little bean in my tummy was looking okay. We were so pleased to have done it and it really put our minds to rest. Fast forward 5 months and here I am at 28 weeks, creeping out of my second trimester and hurtling towards my due date! We’re pretty…

Second Trimester Update

Second Trimester Update

Firstly, an apology is needed. I did originally plan on carrying on my weekly pregnancy updates on the blog, but clearly from the title of this post, that hasn’t happened. Truth be told, there wasn’t enough changes in my pregnancy to warrant an update every week, even every 2 weeks. So here I am, with a second trimester update. Please forgive me! I do plan on doing more regular updates towards my due date, as I’m sure I’ll have more…

Why we’re not finding out the sex of our baby

Why we’re not finding out the sex of our baby

It’s one of the very first questions you get asked when people find out you’re expecting. “Do you know what you’re having?” Young, old, family, not family, there are no discrepancies. Everybody wants to know what this little bump is going to be. With our first pregnancy, my husband was desperate to find out. I think he was struggling with imagining us actually having a baby, and needed to pin his expectations on something. I managed to talk him round,…

Our early scan at 8 weeks – Review of The Scan Room, Huddersfield

Our early scan at 8 weeks – Review of The Scan Room, Huddersfield

For some reason, this pregnancy has by far been my most anxious one. I don’t know if it’s the fact I’m maybe not quite so naive this time around, or that in my odd head, the fact I’ve had 2 straightforward pregnancies means I’m almost expecting something to go wrong this time around. I find out I was pregnant just before I was 4 weeks this time, so I knew from very early on. I touched on it in my…
