This week Arthur threw up in my mouth and on a separate occasion I caught his sick in my hands. We’re weaning at the moment which means I sometimes have banana in my hair, or I find stray bits of avocado in usual places. Most days we both go through several outfit changes (I won’t mention the other bodily fluids, most people have heard all about nappy blow-outs). On Thursday he accidentally scratched my eye, which eventually led to a visit to the GP for antibiotics.*
Now that we’re well and truly in the third trimester (and in actual fact are nearing our due date fairly rapidly!), I thought I better get the post I promised about the third trimester online before we find ourselves busy with the arrival of our baby!
We found out that we were expecting on Easter Sunday. We took one test in the morning, which we didn’t quite believe, and so took another in the evening (after having spent a lovely but lengthy day with family!). That was the time we started to let the happiness, surprise, confusion, disbelief and glee wash over us. Finding out you’re growing a tiny, little human, is such an overwhelming feeling!
As you may have noticed, I took a long and luxurious break from posting – the reason for which has been that we have been busying ourselves with the most wonderful and exciting secret. Of course, for some of you this won’t be a surprise as we’ve been sprinkling our news little by little over the past few weeks and months…
Hello lovelies! I’ve made the decision to have a bit of a pause, as I’m well and truly struggling to keep up with placement, written work, photography, blog posts and life in general, at the moment. I’m not sure how long I’ll be taking a break for, right now, but I’m sure I’ll have a lot to share when I return – I’ve yet to post pictures from Paul and Louise’s wedding, as well as Caroline and Nori’s wedding!
Hello and greetings from Westcliff! We returned from our holiday on Saturday, both glad to come home and sad to leave our lovely canal boat. We had a lovely time, but now we’re back there’s a lot to get done. I spent some time whilst on holiday revising for my up-and-coming OSCE exams, but now the revision needs to start in earnest! I’m working my way through a mountain of washing, as well as trying to give the flat a spring clean. The usual culprits of Getty submissions, NIPE revision and being back on placement this week means that everything is gearing up to getting crazy once more… But that’s just how life is right now!
I’m hoping to post my photo an hour posts for March and April this week, as well as my submissions for #brilliantphotoaday for March. I’m also planning on writing some more midwifery/student midwife content soon, but we’ll see how that pans out with everything else I have on my plate right now..!
