Pregnancy issue

Hi there everyone,

I thought I would tak this opportunity to talk about a pregnancy issue that until the last two weeks I had no idea about……leaky boobs.

Like seriously? No one,and I mean no one, around me told me about this. I was lying in bed one night, rolled over and that’s when I felt a wet patch on my night shirt. I had to get up and show my partner and originally he said that he thought it was a sweat patch but I knew what it was. And then it didn’t occur again until last night when I went to bed and then again today as I was folding washing. Like WTH! Why did no one tell me that this was going to happen?

 Worst part was that I had to google it to see if it was normal. And, to my surprise, it is. Mr Google’s solution though is to get breast pads and where them during the day and night. Something that although at the moment doesn’t seem like a very flattering idea, I may just need to. This is becoming a big issue for me of a night time and quite embarrassing when I have to tell my partner.  What did you guys do about how this? Please let me know in the comments section…..

Anyway, other then that, I hope you are all enjoying your day and I shall talk to you all soon.

Noticing some changes….

Hi there everyone,

I have to say, I had an interesting week last week. Not anything overly exciting happened but while I was at work, I had a couple of people say something about my baby bump.
I was working away, minding my own business, when this lady walked past me and she asked if I wanted a 6 month old to “trial”. I didn’t even say anything to her. She just noticed. Then she asked when i was due and what not and so I told her and she was like good luck etc. It really got me thinking about how much I was showing so I asked one of my co-workers if I had all of a sudden popped out in the last week and she said yes, I had. Which I found quite bizarre. I suppose I look at my bump everyday so I don’t notice much of a difference but apparently everyone else can. It’s truly bizarre to me to think that strangers notice these things. I didn’t realize how much people notice until it actually started to happen to me. How strange life can seem sometimes.

And the other thing that happened while I was at work, on the same day, was a lady came up to me and she asked me where the non-alcoholic champagne type drinks were. I noticed she was quite a bit further along then I was but nonetheless, I showed her where they were. When we got there she said to me….”I knew you would know where they were, we’re the same.” I looked at her for a second and I thought, “What the?” For starters, we may be pregnant but we are defiantly not the same and 2. I don’t drink alcohol, even before I was pregnant. She just made the assumption that I would drink champagne and so I would know where the alternative was. It caught me off guard but totally made my day (it was so bizarre it was quite funny I thought lol)

Anyway, I just thought that I would share those experiences with you all as I found them quite thought provoking….

Hope your all having a great day and I will talk to you all soon.

Updating life

Hi there everyone,

Back on December 31st, 2014, I did a post called New Year coming soon and in that post I had 3 resolutions for 2015….

Well, since we are in October 2015 I thought that I would finally get round to posting about it as it’s past the halfway mark of the year. So here it goes.

Resolution #1: Lose weight (more specifically, about 15kgs)
Well, that didn’t exactly go to plan. I started to lose weight at the beginning of the year and I thought with moving out that I would lose heaps and then of course, I found out I was pregnant so that’s gone completely out the window. Maybe 2016 will be a bit more of a success on that front (Mind you, I’m not complaining about being pregnant because it’s what I have always wanted…)

Resolution #2: Get a new tattoo
Again, falling pregnant has kind of made this impossible. Mind you, hasn’t stopped me thinking about getting one though……..

Resolution #3: Have the perfect home life and be happy
This one I have succeeded at. I have a family who are in good health and I have a baby girl on the way and my partner and I are now living together (Yipee) and we are happier then ever. So, what really could I ask for?

As you can see, 2 out of 3 aren’t bad. Mind you, I got my wish which was to have a baby and so now comes the waiting game for that one ๐Ÿ™‚

Talk to you all later.

Needing Some Help Here…

Hi there everyone,

As I discussed in my last post, we (my partner and myself) are having a baby. Now, we have it in good authority that it will be a girl (I’m going to hold off on the absolute confirmation until a few weeks when I have my last scan ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But until then, it’s a girl and my partner and I are having a bit of an issue in regards to names…….This is where I would really appreciate some input in regards to names so if you could please help me out that would be greatly appreciated.

Hope you are all having a great day and I shall talk to you soon.

Somewhat a tad late but here it goes….

Hi there everyone,

Sorry for not writing since April (jeez louis!) but I have been rather preoccupied…..

I’m having a baby!

No, really, I am. Am currently 28 weeks along and I have enjoyed every second of it. I’ve been very blessed (knock on wood) that I haven’t had to endure any morning sickness or anything so I’m having a pretty relaxed time with it all.

I’m very happy with my body and as most of you may be aware, I have struggled with body image for a long time and so for me to be embracing my body like I am is something that I never thought would happen. Mind you, it hasn’t been easy. I have had a couple of comments from one lady at my workplace and while I have been able to laugh them off at the time, when i have thought about it later, they seem rather inappropriate. The first comment that came my way was “You are going to be quite large aren’t you?”, and the second one was, “You’ll get fat drinking that…”.
Now, as I say, both comments I have laughed off but both have been rather bizarre comments and some which I deem to be inappropriate to say to anyone let alone a pregnant lady. Like, would you really go up to someone who wasn’t pregnant and say that sort of thing? It just gets me a little bit annoyed because it has taken me all my teenage years and almost all of my 20’s to get to this point and the one time that I am uber stoked abu t the way that my body is changing and these comments start popping up. Sorry to whinge about it but I have found that being pregnant and having these things being said to me are really..I don’t know how I feel really.

Other then that I have honestly had the best time being pregnant. And lucky for me I also have a fantastic support group around me of family, friends and some work colleagues who have made me feel like the luckiest girl in the whole world. And of course, I can’t forget my partner ofย  2.5 years, the father of my child who has done an amazing job in looking after me and Bub. Honestly, I could not be happier with my life right now and I can’t think of any other way that it could be better (apart from having Bub already here but that is not going to happen for another few months…..)

Anyway, that is all from me for now. I will keep you posted with anything new hopefully and I hope you are all as well as I am.

Have fun and take care.
