Baby Update – Our First 24 Hours

Hi D Ho and welcome to my first baby update for our beautiful little girl who will be here on know as “Little Lady” in blog land 🙂 (I think its a nice match with her brothers name of Little Man). We have had an amazing* first week, her birth was a tough, exhausting, wonderful, amazing experience and we were on such a high after wards (and still are really).

*I apologise in advance for the blatant overuse of the work amazing in this post, all I can say is that it really was an amazing day 🙂

Pregnancy Update Week 40 – Babies Arrival

Hi D Ho and welcome to the final pregnancy update for baby #2 – week 40! At this stage baby is the size of …a baby! The average baby apparently weighs 7.5 Lbs at this point and is about the size of a small pumpkin.

Its recommended to gain between 25 and 35 Lbs during pregnancy, a little more if you’re underweight to begin with and a little less if you were overweight. With baby #1 I put on Continue reading “Pregnancy Update Week 40 – Babies Arrival”

Pregnancy Update Week 39 – Operation Baby Evection

Hi D Ho and welcome to my pregnancy update for week 39. As you may know our beautiful daughter has arrived, she arrived during week 40 but unfortunately I never got to post my week 39 update even though I had most of it written 😦 So before we get into what happened week 40 heres week 39s update:

At 39 weeks baby is the size of a mini watermelon (although to look at the size of my bump you would think baby is the size of a basket ball) and around 20 inches long. Comparing the week 39 photos from my first and second pregnancies really shows the difference the focus on my diet and exercise made this time around – its great to see my hard work paying off!

Whats in my Hospital Bags

So I have finally officially packed my hospital bags – something I’ve been delaying for a while now. For weeks I had been gathering bits and pieces, putting orders in on line for things I might need and creating nice little piles of things to take with me. However; I just seemed to be reluctant to finally put all these pieces together and call my bags officially packed.

Pregnancy Update Week 38 – Easter

Hi D Ho and welcome to my pregnancy update for week 38, this week baby weighs around 6.8 Lbs and is about the length of a leek at 19 1/2 inches long. From this point on baby is considered full term (anywhere between 38 – 42 is full term) so we could have a baby any day now – although judging by Little Mans reluctance to make an appearance during my first pregnancy I’m not expecting anything to happen any time too soon.
