It feels like a life time ago when I think back to been pregnant. I re-read some of my pregnancy diary posts this morning and I can’t believe how calm and relaxed I was about everything. I’m probably more anxious now than I was then! I was so well looked after during my pregnancy and had visits to the hospital every two weeks and sometimes weekly so I think that support really helped chill me out and I just felt what would be would be. My anti-birth plan also helped because I was educated by my consultant so I knew all…

Identical Twin Diaries: Things I was unprepared for

I’ve never hidden the fact that despite been in my late twenties when I found out I was pregnant, I was totally unprepared for motherhood. Don’t get me wrong I love my girls so much and I wouldn’t change a thing but I enjoyed my baby-free lifestyle. Having only got married in the summer, myself and Jay were selfishly enjoying lazy Saturday mornings, eating out whenever we felt like it and planning holidays left, right and centre. I went shopping whenever I felt like it, booked myself random spa days and called in places to get my nails done. Having…

I will of course be writing about their birth…

WEEK BY WEEK TWIN PREGNANCY: 32 WEEKS

The bags under my eyes in this bump photo say it all. Growing two tiny humans is exhausting. Some days I feel like I have been pregnant forever and other days it only seems like yesterday I was throwing the ClearBlue stick at Jay explaining ‘we might have a little issue…’ Oh if I’d only known then that our little issue might be x2. I have successfully made it to 32 weeks pregnant with our little modi twins and looking back, I’ve really not had that bad of a pregnancy. I have however started to really notice my limitations. Not…

Pregnancy Dreams: The Weird and Wonderful

I thought I’d stray a little from my usual type of post as this was something that no one had ever mentioned or warned me about prior to getting pregnant! Despite friends already having babies and attending all my sex education and biology classes as a teenager, you’d have thought at some point I would have heard about pregnancy dreams… I’ve always had a very good imagination. My Mum used to tell me that as a child, I’d tell her the most amazing stories about the places I’d been and what I’d seen but actually I’d never left the farm…
