Week 24 – time is flying! 

Today I’ve hit week 24. Where has the time gone?!

I had been feeling much better over the past few weeks, apart from some ligament pain and trouble sleeping, but then at the weekend the dreaded cold struck!

Usually with a cold I’d dose up with meds and carry on with life, but with baby on board meds are a no go so dealing with a cold has been pretty grim! A couple of days off work and I am pretty much on the mend now but it’s been tough going. Baby has been wiggling around happily so he/she seems content enough in there!

Tummy is growing slowly. Honestly, it depends what I’m wearing, but I have a found a great dress in my wardrobe that makes me look nice and pregnant and would wear it everyday if I could!
Baby was the size of a Barbie doll last week and the size of an Atlantic puffin this week! Not sure how accurate the sizing is but love to see what random things will pop up next!

We have purchased a few things over the last few weeks. Here’s a some bits so far:

  • I had been considering cots in my last post and, although we found loads we liked, for now we have ended up with a second hand cot at £20. I plan to use some Annie Sloan Paris Grey, which is totally safe for babies, and buy a new mattress and bedding. We haven’t collected it yet but I like a good project.
  • As I’ll likely be combination feeding we decided to buy a Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep Machine as we’d read and watched some great reviews and it was a great price in the Asda baby event.
  • I have also ordered a baby bouncer. I really wanted the M&P (think I have a bit of an obsession with them!) Starlite Swing but couldn’t justify spending so much when we have lots left to buy! So we decided to go for the M&P (surprise, surprise) Buzz Bouncer 

Nothing much else to report really. Lots more to sort, buy and organise, but we’ve got plenty of time right?!

    Oh no Becky, so sorry to hear you’ve had a cold! It’s miserable isn’t it? I’ve been feeling like I’ve got one coming for a couple of days now and I feel like I’m just waiting for it to strike. The no meds thing is a complete pain!

    Nice work on all the baby purchases! You’re right, we’ve got lots of time but it’s nice to get these things sorted isn’t it!? The bouncer looks great!
