My Little Babog Is Not A Sleeper

Sleep-deprived-pregnant-mammy-baby-

We were blessed with Frankie. Naptime and bedtime he is an angel, excluding the clock change, that did throw him off but last night it was business as usual. I mention his bop-bop, num-nums or teddy and he’s thundering up the stairs – waving bye-bye, blowing kisses, the lot. We don’t see him till morning. Again, we are blessed.

The-third-trimester-week-28-pregnancy-update

At this stage on my last pregnancy I wrote ten or so pregnancy related posts, this time not only have I avoided writing about it I have also avoided early scans and appointments too.

I chose to wait it out, my dating scan was my anomaly scan and as my dates were a whole month off we’ve basically jumped from a pregnancy announcement to 22 weeks pregnant. I’ve just rocked half way through the second trimester. Woo! (more…)
