On Sunday, 10th July I was 38 weeks and three days pregnant. Although I still had 11 days until my due date I was beginning to wonder if Little Mister H was ever going to arrive. Over the weeks my anxiety levels had grown. And I could not see the pregnancy ending happily. And that weekend, I had begun to talk to Mr H about asking my midwife for a stretch and sweep. I was worried about how apprehensive I was beginning to…

Last weekend, I began to feel that Little Mister H might make an early appearance. And I panicked! I hadn't written a birth plan and my hospital bags weren't packed. Spurred on by the thought of Little Mister H arriving into chaos I packed my bags and wrote my plan. And I feel much happier knowing that I'm ready for Little Mister H's arrival (well, as ready as I will ever be).…

Back in May, my best friend took me to afternoon tea at the Savoy. We live at opposite ends of the country and don't get to see each other that often. She knew that she wouldn't be able to throw me a baby shower and so this was her treat to me. She has been hugely supportive through all the miscarriages and is a fantastic spare mummy to Little Miss H. I know how happy she is that this pregnancy has gone…

When pregnancy is a struggle

A blurry and black and white photograph of a pregnant lady _ including the title "when pregnancy is a struggle" _ Mrs H's favourite things

It is difficult to admit that something you have yearned for desperately has been a struggle. Ever since Little Miss H has been a few months old, I have wanted a second baby. The miscarriages that followed just made my desperation for that child more intense. Each loss took us further away from our longed for second child. But each loss made me more determined that we needed to become a family of four.…

First of all I have an admission to make I am not 32 weeks pregnant. I am now 33 weeks pregnant and this update is a week late. Sorry. There are only 7 weeks until I reach my due date. I am on the final stretch. How did that happen? The past few months seem to have passed in a blur. And now here I am thinking about my birth plan and what I need to pack in my hospital bag.…

Looking after sensitive skin during pregnancy

A photograph of a brunette lady with minimal make-up, natural skin, a side ponytail and wearing a blue and white striped top - includes the title "Pregnancy skincare for sensitive skin -tips, products and routines". _ Mrs H's favourite things

I have extremely sensitive skin and there have been many times when I have had an allergic reaction to a product that claimed to be hypoallergenic. As I have got older my skin has become even more sensitive and now, in my late 30's, I've developed rosacea. A skin condition that leads to a reddening of the face. It also often leads to my skin feeling sore and itchy, with nasty spots. I am currently 32 weeks pregnant and I have been…
