Our baby is now a whooping 4 pounds or more (and judging from my bump, probably more!) and 17 inches long. That seems crazy to me. That 2 bags of sugar-worth of human being is growing INSIDE ME! Physically, I am doing pretty well but I get so tired and achey that I am not much use in the evenings - another reason why I am anxious to finish work. I only have two weeks left here and then I will...
Baby Girl’s heartbeat
One Lovely Blog
The lovely OneFifthFox has very kindly given me this award and it made my day! Her brave blog is one I found when we were both trying to conceive and though shortly afterwards, I was lucky enough to get the good news, the road for her has not been so easy. After another miscarriage, she is still sharing her life and giving the most amazing encouragement which in the circumstances mustn’t...
Belly-Button Watch: it’s still in! After a rather emotional week last week, this week has been much better, no doubt helped by the fact that we agreed a sale on our house last Friday. You can read more about the house drama here. The progress on the house has meant that I can finally start to focus my attention back on the really important life-changing event of having a baby (as opposed...
This week has been a funny old week. I think the hormones are back and bringing me down which has meant a few tears and a lot of feeling glum.

You're never fully dressed without a smile.
This feels like a milestone even though the ‘10 weeks to go’ is really just a fallacy. As I get nearer, I realise how much I wish I knew the date of arrival for sure (although perhaps that would be just as scary but just in a different way). The not knowing makes the planner in me wince. I already am thinking about my hospital bag and what I will pack even though I still have over...
The heart is the strongest muscle in the body. Use it.– 1001 rules for my unborn son
I am watching Supernanny (both the UK and US versions) pretty compulsively lately. Some thoughts: Jo Frost is a goddess. It is scary how intelligent people can seem to make such basic mistakes. I am flabbergasted that a mother can quite happily explain that the reason her five year old twins are still having a bottle and in nappies at night is because she doesn’t want to have to deal...

Becoming a mummy blogger
Although I blog fairly regularly over at all five horizons, I really wanted to set up a new blog which was completely dedicated to the upcoming arrival of Baby Girl. At this stage, I don’t know if I will maintain both blogs but at the moment, this is all I really want to blog about and my regular readers may get bored very quickly.
