week 39

I keep thinking it’s only one week left of this pregnancy but of course I’m aware that it might just as well be three. I had my last midwife appointment on Monday. The baby is still in the correct position and we could hear a good, strong heartbeat. I raised my concerns about the fact […]

week 38

I just need to start off by saying – how on earth can there be a fully developed baby in there?? Yep, the baby is now completely ready to take on the outside world! How amazing is that!? Yesterday we passed 38 weeks and every day I have to remind myself that we are getting one […]

Week 37

I have been back in London for a week now after a relaxing and fun time in Sweden. Not only did I get to spend 10 days in beautiful Österlen but I was also surprised with a baby shower organised by my wonderful friends. I can’t believe that they were able to pull it together […]

Baby clothes

Gray Label

One day I’m dedicated to find out every single upside and downside of an epidural while another day is spent searching for eco-friendly baby clothes. Speaking of eco-friendly baby clothes – I have found and fallen in love with the amazing children […]

week 32

The UK is going through a heatwave and it has been about 30c for almost a week now. It’s not the ideal last trimester temperature, but one should not complain! But if I can complain a little I would say that the heat is challenging my mood. The other morning for example I was getting […]

week 31

I didn’t manage to make an update for week 30 as I was sick and passed out in the bed all last week. Today at lunch time Kiwi and I made a visit to Rosemary Gardens, which is a park 5 minutes from our flat. It was so nice to feel the sun on the […]

Do I have Gestational Diabetes?

Good morning from a rainy and grey London. It was many weeks ago the rain was this heavy, but the sound of it is calming and restful. I have made myself a cup of green tea from Pukka. It’s smooth and warm and the perfect contrast to what’s going on outside the window. Since coming […]
