Hello ladies

Just updating you all and checking in, pregnancy going well so far can’t complain!

Mental health has been stable too, I pray it stays that way 💛😊🤩

Honestly having App and the perinatal team is a blessing , to be honest I’m actually this pregnancy more than my first xx

Hello Butterfly93

Lovely to hear your update .... 27 weeks already! :)

I hope you are managing to rest in between the school run.

Not long until your maternity leave? Have a relaxing sleep if you can ... not easy when you’re ‘expanding’ but exciting 💛 Take care .

Hello Butterfly93

It’s great that you have a nanny to take the pressure off doing the school runs .... always a good idea to have a cat nap during the day :)

Hopefully by the end of this month you will have more time to yourself for ‘nesting’ . Stay safe. xx

Aww lovely to hear that you are able to enjoy this pregnancy Butterfly93. It gets very exciting as these milestones keep coming up quickly.

I bet you can't wait till you get to the point where you can finish work and slow down a little. I hope you are managing to sleep OK on a night as well, as from now on in things can get a little uncomfortable. I recall I used to get cramp down one leg when asleep, from the way my little girl must have been lying on my sciatic nerve. I distinctly remember feeling quite resentful of my husband obliviously sleeping soundly whilst was constantly woken with the agonising leg cramp. I may have given him the odd unwarranted prod in the ribs 😄. Happy times though. I'm glad everything is going well for you and with lots of happy times ahead to look forward to

Take Lots of Care

Good night xx

Hey Lilybeth, awww thanks hun ! I am literally taking each day as it comes hun . Don’t get me wrong some days I Struggle but I don’t allow it to ruin my whole entire day . As I either speak to my husband or my perinatal nurse who are both very supportive! I’ve had a lovely day today, also went for a walk, had 2 naps and managed to cook dinner and prep packed lunches for hubby and daughter for tomorrow xx

Hello Buterfly93

Such a good support network to lean on .... your husband or perinatal nurse when some days are not as good. So pleased you have had a lovely day today ... what a star you are being so organised ⭐️ Have a good sleep later xx

Hello Butterfly93

Just wondering if you had your appointment with the midwife this week? Don’t worry about replying as I’m sure you have had a tiring day.

Storm Alice has been busy with all the rain today .... how funny that a few months ago we were in a heatwave :) Have a good rest and take care.

Hi Butterfly93,

Lovely to hear your update to Lilybeth. Your posts always give me a warm happy feeling.

Glad everything is progressing as it should so no worrying.

I had a little chuckle at your comment about hot choc and fluffy socks. This is my daughters favourite time of year. She loves everything autumn and getting cosy.

Take Care and looking forward to your next post
