Last day in the office (and they gave me boobies)

Well, that’s that; I’ve officially finished up in the office for the next 7.5 months. I’ve got another 2 weeks of working from home, before finally taking 2 weeks off before baby’s due date. it will be the longest break I’ve ever had from work since starting full-time work at aged 18.

This week the girls in the office threw me a baby shower, which was really lovely of them! They had asked me what we wanted in the way of gifts, which as you may remember from my baby shower weekend always makes me feel uncomfortable.  I just don’t like that people feel like they have to give us anything. read more

Health scare and hospital (let’s talk about sex, baby)

I swore that when I started writing about my pregnancy that I would cover the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Instead, I found tons of “pregnancy is wonderful and glowing and rainbows” – the complete opposite of how I was feeling. So I made my promise to cover it all.

This is one of those stories.

Warning – if you can’t handle gory details, maybe skip this one. read more

Baby shower weekend

I need a weekend to recover from my weekend! It was a very baby-filled weekend, surrounded by amazing friends and family. Friday and Saturday nights were both average sleeps, but thankfully last night I passed out pretty solidly. As I write this on Monday morning, I’m feeling pretty good again.

Recap of my baby shower

I’m kicking myself for not taking any photos, but I blame that on just enjoying myself instead. I’ve stolen some from the hubby and a friend to show you just how amazing it was.

My amazing family organised a baby shower for me, in which our baby boy and I were completely spoiled. There was so much food, and we were gifted so many presents! read more
