Time is flying by, and although we still don’t have a definite plan in place for when this little one will be coming along – its still a toss up between induction and seeing if I can go into labour by myself, but this will be decided at our next scan in 3 weeks time – I have finally gotten round to packing my hospital bag. After a few days of particularly painful Braxton Hicks, and both the boys coming at 37/38 weeks, its definitely given me a kick to get organised for when the time comes. I’ve made a…

Wow, hasn’t time flown? I have to say I’ve been slightly better at documenting my pregnancy over on youtube that I have on my blog – so if you want the latest definitely pop over and have a watch.

You may be thinking I haven’t seen those faces around these parts for a while. It’s true, I have been totally slacking – although for good reason. The last few months have been both amazing and pretty crappy in equal measure. If you don’t normally read my blog then I’ll let you in on the secret – WE ARE EXPECTING ANOTHER LITTLE BRUSHNEEN!! Obviously that’s the amazing part – the not so great bit is how sick it has made me. As I write this today I’ve turned 20 weeks and the sickness has let up a bit this morning.…
