I’ve eaten loads and drunk far too much coffee
 I wanted to bounce on the beds and run around revolving doors (like in Home Alone) but this hotel didn’t have those kinds of doors. Just this entrance with 𝗯đ—Čđ—źđ˜‚đ˜đ—¶đ—łđ˜‚đ—č, ornate, mirrors. ⁣

đŸ’» Guess who’s got a đ—±đ—Č𝗮𝗿đ—Čđ—Č? Oh yes, that is me. Over 3 years of hard work has led me to this and I feel so proud of myself. Starting a degree during Covid and homeschooling children and working is just insane when I think back.⁣
⁣
All that study time means I have a BSc Hons in đ— đ—źđ—»đ—źđ—Žđ—Čđ—șđ—Čđ—»đ˜ đ—Łđ—żđ—źđ—°đ˜đ—¶đ—°đ—Č. I love that this is a universal degree, it means I can use it whatever my future holds. ⁣
⁣
As it’s an apprenticeship, through my employer, I still have some work to do to finish off. But my certificate is en route
 the hard work is done. I wouldn’t have been able to do this if it wasn’t for my employer giving me time to study and Hubby for giving me the space to work into the evenings and weekends. It’s a lot of time. And I will be forever grateful. ⁣
⁣
I love learning and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do, as I left uni at 20 without my 𝗟𝗼𝘄 degree. It was my biggest regret leaving so close to the end. But I’ve done it now and that’s the main thing. ⁣

The calm before the storm…

The calm before the storm…

It was Saturday, my due date (5th May 2012) and I was feeling very poorly, I'd had braxton hicks all day and it got to about 10pm and I started feeling sick, I had a fever, diarrhoea and the braxton hicks felt a lot worse. I managed to get myself to sleep, only to be woken up in the middle of the night with mild contraction feelings: they passed after an hour and I went to sleep again. I woke up Sunday to have absolutely nothing! Bank holiday Monday, we tried 2 of the things that you are advised to do, to spur on labour but they didn't work... Still no baby!Tuesday I had braxton hicks all day and evening, but by this time I wasn't thinking anything of them because I just thought that this baby is never going to come out... Wednesday I had again ...

The Midwife Appointment: 32 week check

The Midwife Appointment: 32 week check

The appointment went well, considering! I went in with the mood of not to be messed with, came out feeling like I hadn't been messed about - so that's a bonus! I firstly spoke to the midwife about my sickness bug, the cramps and tightenings I'd had all weekend. She told me the tightenings were fine and there are lots of bugs about so not to worry. Which is good, she said as long as I managed to keep liquid down, it's fine. My wee sample came up perfect, if I was still poorly from the weekend it would've flagged up, surely? I then proceeded to discuss my absolute disappointment in the lack of support from the physio and the midwives when calling them up about it. She told me she is going to personally write to the physio, explaining I've been trying to arrange an appointment and hopefully ...

27 weeks… The final trimester

27 weeks, wow, I cannot believe the final trimester is here already… It’s gone really quickly and considering we knew right from the start, that’s got to have been quick. 6 months ago was Noahs christening, it was summer, it’s crazy how quickly time flies with bump when you have a tot! I’ve started getting pains in my pelvis again, much the same as when I was carrying Noah. I can’t take side steps, push anything with my foot (like slide the washing basket over etc) it hurts to get up, sit down and roll over in bed. Thank god for my maternity pillow, I wrapped myself around it last night and it felt really comfortable. For the first time in ages! Theraline have a lot to be thanked for 🙂 So what’s in store for my final trimester then? Tiredness, aching, sleepless nights and oh yes don’t forget looking…
