7 and a half Things That Scare Me About Giving Birth A Second Time

When I fell pregnant for the first time, I went to yoga classes religiously throughout my second trimester. My morning sickness had subsided and I had more energy. Then when I got to the third trimester, driving the 15 miles in rush hour traffic got too much and I gave up. Read more

Very Early Signs of Pregnancy

Compared to first time around, I fell pregnant fairly quickly with baby number 2. And to be honest, if it wasn’t for me being so in tune with my body I may not have known I was pregnant as early as I did. All of those very early signs of pregnancy were there… Read more

My Captured Moment: BUMP

There is only one thing I love more than a pregnancy announcement… and that is lovely, warm, pink, squidgy, new baby cuddles.

A few of my friends are expecting or have just had babies (the host of this link-up included), and a few more that I know of are trying!

And although Mr Vista and I would love nothing more than a little brother or sister for Little Miss Vista, we’re not 100% there yet for a few reasons. Money being the main big one: We would need a bigger house, a bigger car and it would mean that we’d be missing a whole years worth of wages from me when we’ve just recovered from maternity leave the first time around.

But it seems to me that everywhere I look it’s bumps galore and scan pictures a-plenty – no complaints from me. Here’s hoping that all of 2016’s blog babies are healthy and happy.

I haven’t joined in with Heledd’s My Captured Moment for a little while. Mainly because I’ve been busy with work and and trying to sort out my work/life balance… I will publish that meal plan that I’ve been working on for a while. I promise!

I think it’s safe to say my selfie abilities have improved in the past two and a bit years… but look at that BUMP!

I remember being shocked at how early my bump sprouted and how big it (she!!) got so quickly due to the gestational diabetes.

Once that was under control, the bump maintained and just got lower… I can still remember how excited I was and how much I loved the smell of Fairy non-bio!

Do you still have your bump selfies?

Polka Dots and Bumps… My Captured Moment…

When we celebrated Little Miss Vista’s first birthday in November of last year Mr Vista put together a slide show photographs and short movies from her first year.

It was amazing and made me blub on many occasions.

On Sunday evening, as a Mother’s Day treat, I had a private viewing of this slide show.

Snuggle under a blanket with a hot cup of tea the emotions took me back to how I felt when I was a mere 30 weeks away from entering motherhood…
