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).…

Looking after sensitive skin during pregnancy

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…

Last Thursday, Thursday 31st March 2016, was quite a momentous day for me. It was the day I turned 24 weeks pregnant. It was the day that our baby became viable. A horrible term. But a milestone that means a huge amount to me and to Mr H. It was a day that I believed would never come. I know that we still have a long way to go until our baby boy is safely here. 16 weeks and counting. However, getting this far in…

Our baby gender reveal

Having the 20 week scan on Thursday helped me relax. It was a great milestone to reach and it was wonderful to see our baby fidgeting away. I am always nervous before scans. I worry about the worst case scenario. And I sit in the waiting room sick from nerves and excitement. Thankfully, the scan went well. Baby is healthy and everything looks as it should do. And yes, we did find out the gender. Just as we did when I was pregnant…

Last week was tough. Little Miss H had a very nasty sickness bug, which she eventually shared with me. It wasn't pleasant. But we are now on the road to recovery. And this afternoon has been hard. My emotions are all over the place at the moment and I often feel very tearful. To cheer myself up I think it is about time to write a new Because I'm happy post. I always love these blog posts. They never fail to put…

I am back with my second vlog. Once again, I am taking part in Vlog Club and this month's prompt is to share my top five favourite books. It has been almost impossible to limit it to just five books. I love reading and before becoming a mum I used to read a book a week. There is so much wonderful literature out there that I love. And there were many other books that I could have included in this list. If…

Vlog Club – My top five beauty products

I wouldn't count myself as a vlogger. I have only made one other vlog. We decided that it would be easier to vlog regularly if we set ourselves a theme. And so the idea behind Vlog Club and sharing our Top Fives was born. The theme will change every month and August's theme is My top five beauty products. Do pop back in September for my top five chick flicks! …
