A BODY SHOP EVENT & IDEAS FOR YOUR HOSPITAL BAG!


Last week I headed to an event at the Body Shop with Southampton Bloggers and whilst checking out their new range I had a great thought about some of their smaller sized products which would be perfect for your hospital bag. I'm currently unsure until next week whether i'll need to be packing one or not as I need to speak to a consultant Midwife to decide whether the home birth idea is best for us. 
I haven't purchased all these items, but from scents and testing in store I have picked out some of my favourites. Once I have a plan for my birth, if I end up packing a hospital bag i'll be sure to update you all on what I actually put in mine and baby's bags. 

26 & 27 WEEK UPDATE - A 4D SCAN & AN AMBULANCE TRIP | BABY NUMBER THREE


The past two weeks have been manic so I am now a little behind on these updates which is annoying but of course my health is more important, as is looking after myself for the sake of baby! The past two weeks there have been worries regarding fundal height measurements, awaiting a growth scan, booking a private 4D scan and then BAM! an ambulance was called and I was taken into hospital in horrific pain and a lot of fear.

YOUR FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL | A LETTER TO LUCAS


Dear Little Lucas,

Today you embarked on a massive milestone, you took your first steps into your "big school" today without a single tear or a single care in the world but as I took the steps back out after dropping you off I shed tears and my heart felt so heavy. Even as I type this to you now, i'm holding back the tears and I know that you'll be reading this back in years and years time and what I want to say to you is that I truly am so proud of how you've transitioned to a school boy and how well you've taken to the big change.

MY DREAM BIRTH | BABY NUMBER THREE


Birth is either one of those things you look forward to or dread and for me this time it's something I am excited about! I am a bit of a weirdo in that sense, I just find birth so amazing and yeah, of course, it hurts but I just love it. I am so excited about birth this time after Iris' and I just hope baby is behaving and is head down and ready to go when the time comes in December.

WHAT I CAN'T WAIT FOR IN AUTUMN


Is it too early to get excited for Autumn? Please say no. I am far too excited for everything that is coming over the Autumn months and then at the end of Autumn will come my baby! How perfect is this? That's not forgetting my "baby" girl turns two at the end of October! I am so not ready to say I have a two year old.

I have been that grumpy, ol' pregnant lady recently, grumbling at the heat and when that rain pours and it gets chillier, I am overjoyed by it. BRING ON THOSE CHILLY, RAINY DISNEY DAYS!
I cannot wait!
The gloomy days recently have got me thinking about Autumn and our plans and I thought i'd write a 'What I can't wait for in Autumn' list to show what i'm excited for. Eeeek!

TEN PRAMS WE LOVE! | BABY NUMBER 3



Pram shopping has to be my most favourite thing to do ever! We bought a new pram when we had Lucas in 2014 and then changed the colour pack on the pram for when we had Iris. We sold our silver cross when we reached a stage of "are we having anymore?" so this means pram shopping is on the cards! I am so excited to get a new pram for our last tiny person. I guess the next time we'll be buying a pram will be when one of our littles has their own. I guess by that point they'll push themselves or have a robot to do it for them (joking).

I've been browsing online looking at prams so of course i'm commenting solely on the look of them, I guess i'm judging a book by its cover but we're all suckers for pretty things right?
