Second Pregnancy First Trimester Experience

If you spotted my recent post, A Family of Four, you will know that our little family is growing, with baby number two due this November. We are so excited to be expecting another little one, now over the halfway mark with just a few short months to go until our baby arrives.

During my first pregnancy with Willow, I shared a weekly pregnancy post; this time around I have a few posts I want to share with you all, covering my birth plan after a previous emergency caesarean, my hopes and fears for our growing family and pregnancy essentials which have made this pregnancy easier. I'll also be delving into the more personal side of pregnancy, sharing my experience of a second pregnancy, how we're preparing Willow for sisterhood and how my second pregnancy has been compared to my first, kicking things off with my Second Pregnancy First Trimester Experience.

Daily Planners Are My Saviour

If you analysed my life, you'd see I'm not the most organised of people - I prefer to call my life organised chaos! - but there are a few things I do like to keep in order, such as ideas and features for the blog, family appointments and general family life. I'm now into my third year of using daily planners, something which has not only become a natural habit but something I really enjoy doing.

For me, using daily planners and diaries makes keeping my life that little bit more organised and easier, and I much prefer writing things down to using apps on my phone or web calendars. I like writing, I like using different pens and making things look a little bit fun with stickers (yes, even at my age!) and I like making my planners more personal to me. For me, using daily planners is an absolute saviour in keeping my organised chaos, well, organised!

A Family of Four

For someone who is incredibly bad at keeping secrets, my little family has managed to keep this secret for 16 weeks. As you may have already guessed from the title of this post, and the photos, our family is growing, with our little trio growing into a family of four!

Willow Loves Splash Babies

Learning to swim is an essential life skill and something we knew we wanted our daughter to learn early on. Although my partner and I both learnt how to swim in school, it seems not all schools do this anymore and so a swimming class was the route we wanted to take.

Hylamide Hydra-Density Mist Review

I recently shared my thoughts on the Hylamide Low-Molecular HA Booster, a hydration boosting serum which has been sorting out pesky areas of dehydration for me, so today I wanted to share another product from Hylamide I've really been enjoying.
