This pregnancy is just flying by! The last few weeks have probably been the easiest out of all of them... despite the constant squirming in my tummy I have barely felt pregnant (besides not being able to bend over at all). We got an ultrasound on the weekend and our little cherub is doing well and looking quite handsome if I may say so myself.

I am, however, counting down the weeks until I go on maternity leave! Bring it on! With this week finished I will only have five for weeks of work to go.. sounds like a lot but I am truly hoping it will be as easy as the last couple of weeks. 

Also, I have come to realise that a baby sitting DIRECTLY on your bladder is a bloody pain! I have never ever had to go to the toilet so much in my whole entire life.

On another note, we took Miss Bug to Newtown Festival on the weekend and she had an absolute blast! My lil thrill seeker went on all the rides and chilled in the sun listening to the live music and ate a sausage sizzle. 
Lovely day out had by all!

Stay tuned for more happenings!

I heart my pregnancy body

I ABSOLUTELY love my pregnancy body.

It's probably the first time I've ever felt truly comfortable in my own skin.

It has taken me ages to build confidence in myself and to actually truly accept that I am me, I am perfect to myself and my beautiful daughter and to the baby growing inside of me.

I want my daughter to grow up with the confidence it took me 24 years and 2 pregnancies to develop.

To me, my daughter is the most beautiful little girl in the world and both her father and I remind her of this every chance we get.

Having body issues and no confidence is probably one of the worst feelings and it is definitely something I don't want her to feel.

So today (even though it's late), I am most definitely proud of my wonderful body, no matter how many stretch marks, lumps and bumps I may get.

I am me and I am happy to be who I am!

 It's been a pretty good week on the home front. Setting up the nursery makes things really sink in... Wow, I'm having another baby! =P

Miss Bug has been sick with a viral infection (thanks preschool!) So this means days off school for her and days off work for me. On the positive it means I get to catch up on the house work!

Linking up with Tina 

Come play along!!

Ooh the pain!

Well hello Monday! You, Monday, are a very long, tedious, painful day. I just want to say there is absolutely NOTHING fun about working full time and being a mum whilst pregnant and suffering from symphysis pubis dysfunction. Nothing at all.
Being a mum is the hardest as it's so difficult to explain to a three year old that mummy can't sit on the floor as mummy probably won't be able to get up without a) being in extreme pain and b) requiring the assistance of another adult to help her get up.
The pregnancy isn't all that bad if you take away the pain. Bubs kicks and moves about frequently which is such a joy. I love those little feelings. It's probably the best bit about pregnancy. That and the glowing skin and silky smooth hair! Booyah!
24 weeks. Still to many to go!

23 weeks

So, I'm twenty-three weeks. The weeks still seem to be flying. We had an ultrasound on Saturday night. Bubs is looking well and is very active.
The pregnancy.... Well.... Im carrying lower with this one so it's causing so much pain in my pelvis, so much so that it hurts when I walk, sit lie down or stand.
Other then that I've still had no other real issues. Morning sickness was non existent, there is minimal heartburn, my hair is all shiny and my skin is all glowy.....

Besides pregnancy, we've been having issues with the house we have purchased. It seems to be problem after problem. So much stress.

Got to take the bad with the good though.

22 weeks!

Well, I am officially 22 weeks pregnant (23 this friday)!

It's been going exceptionally quick this time round which is probably due to working full time and being a mumma bear to Miss Bug who is a rambunctious 3 year old princess!

We have been getting more and more kicks and the lovely partner felt bubs kicking last night for the first time. He was so excited, it was so sweet.

I think we are also on track for nursery equipment which, annoyingly enough, I can't start setting up until I know for sure where we will be living by January. It's all very exciting.

Miss Bug is being an absolute champion about having a new baby brother or sister and has even started blaming the new baby for things she has done. She reminds me so much of myself at that age haha.

I think that's pretty much all that's been happening lately, stick around for future updates.

The expecting!

Not so long ago, back in May on the day of my daughters 3rd birthday party we decided, on a whim, to do a home pregnancy test.
I'm not sure why, I was only a day late but we had one lying around so I thought "why not?". So off I went to pee on the little future changing stick and not even a minute later the faintest of second lines started to appear before my eyes. Shit!
I gave the mister the test and I think we kinda just stood there in shock before he finally broke the silence "guess we should postpone the wedding then?"
And so we did. We told me family 10 days later on my birthday and true to their form everyone was stoked.
We've only just reached 12 weeks and I have that long long stretch ahead of me. I'm not looking forward to being uncomfortable and huge, but if it's anything like the last pregnancy it won't be to bad.
We are due on the 27th January... I personally can't wait!
Watch with space for future updates haha.

So much can happen in six months!

Well hello there!

This will be my first post in nearly six months. SIX loooooonnnggggg months! Bloody exciting if you ask me!

So what's new?

Well, as I type this my FIANC√ČE is in the kitchen making me dinner.. Yeah, I'm engaged now! How awesome is that! The lovely partner proposed at the most gorgeous look-out point after taking me out for dinner on the 21st  March, 2012. It was so romantic.... even for the cynic I am haha!

My daughters third birthday is this Thursday coming.  I have been an amazing mummy for three years now, I still find it hard to believe I have raised this absolutely gorgeous, strong minded, lovable little girl.

We are currently in the midst of planning our wedding, which is set for September 21, 2013. We had to post-pone the date due to "finances". We have found our perfect venue and pay the deposit on Monday, and we are currently looking for photographers and a celebrant. Planning a wedding is so very exciting!

We all went to Tasmania last month. That was pretty cool. Tasmania has been a place on my vision board for the last year and a half now, so I was pretty happy to mark it off my list. We had a great time there. We visited the cadbury factory, picked fruit, check out some old goals. It was loads of fun doing stuff as a family... just the partner, Tilds and I.

Thats pretty much whats been happening in the last six months.. besides working, easter and mothers day. We also got some pretty cool news to share, but I'll save that for another post!
