• Pregnancy | Update: Symphysis pubis dysfunction (self diagnosis)

    TweetWhen its more than just the regular pregnancy aches and pains About three weeks or so ago I started feeling a bit of discomfort and pressure in my pelvic region. Now the pain is traveling down the inside of my legs. I shared this with the Hubby as its definitely a first for me. I then mentioned this to a fellow pregnant Mom and local midwife and they both suggested I discuss this with my Gynae at the next check up as it could be Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD). What are the signs and symptoms of SPD? A sharp and sometimes overwhelming pain in the region at the front of…

  • Pregnancy | Motherhood Monday: Some baby news

    TweetAs you may have guessed from my picture – we’re having a little GIRL! Mothers of children of the same gender will understand me. The comments start when you’re pregnant – “Shame maybe this time will be a little girl.” When you’re pregnant, the most important thing on your mind, is having a healthy baby. Worrying about the baby’s sex / gender (I’m trying to be so politically correct that I actually don’t know what to refer to it as) should NOT be the main concern. I understand that some people do experience gender disappointment and I don’t want to offend those people at all but top priority should always be…

    Pregnancy | Our trusted baby brand: Tommee Tippee

Tommee Tippee, Dr Brown, Nuk, Avent, Pigeon etc. This post is not to throw shade at any brands out there, some families gravitate towards certain brands and some babies do the same. You need to do what works for you (do you buy all your home appliances from different brands or stick to one you know and love?). First tip – Don’t…

    Pregnancy | Series | My favourite… Pregnancy books

    TweetWelcome to the “MY FAVOURITE” series. This series may become a weekly thing, monthly or I may just post sporadically as I share some of my favourite’s during this pregnancy. For the first part of this series I thought I’d focus on preparing for this baby. Not necessarily body wise but more knowledge is power wise. When it comes to pregnancy books there are a lot out there, you can easily be overwhelmed when entering a bookstore or going online by what is available. Now considering that this is my 3rd pregnancy I can assure you that I’ve read quite a few books over the last 10 years of this…

    BOY OR GIRL – Let’s have some fun with gender predictor tests

    TweetDO YOU KNOW? If you read my last few posts (here and here) you know that I’m currently half way through this pregnancy and you’ll probably understand that each and every person you encounter will at some point or another ask you if you know the baby’s sex and also expect you to share this information with them (be it someone you actually know or a complete stranger). Now many people may have no problems shouting this from the roof top but there are some, myself included who just want to keep this information between us for now and process it all. But for the sake of having some fun,…
