365 third trimester blues

Place: in Bed

Poison: anti acids

Favourite things: anti acids

Who would have known, after my exciting start to 366 days of posting it would have gone downhill so fast?

We’re not sure if it was the chicken wrap, the kidney infection or a combination of Christmas over indulgence, but last night I didn’t sleep a wink…

Sad face!

I had severe indigestion and something was not right, my husband rang the hospital and they suggested lots of hot towels and rest. A night of discomfort ensued.

We are at the pointy end of this pregnancy my friend and it’s hard to believe so many women have gone before me and come out the other side okay.

Oh my! I was so determined not to whine and complain through this pregnancy because it was so eagerly anticipated…

But seriously God what were you thinking?


I have been trying to get myself into a place of rest that I believe will end in sleep tonight.

Fingers crossed. XX

To all the women who have gone before me, I salute you. To all the men who made us pregnant ‘be kind’!!

The third trimester is a treat!

366 days of novice motherhood…

Place: the car

Poison: chicken wrap

Favourite things: a brand new year!

I am attempting a challenge that may be very unwise in the season I am entering but we all need a challenge sometime!

I want to blog everyday of this leap 2012th year about my tales, woes and adventures of novice motherhood.

I have an idea for a book at the end of it, but am really happy with a creative boundary that encourages stimulation and discussion!

We brought a pram today, no mean feat as we have discussed this pram buying scenario for 3 months and this week we made a decision on a new car in a day!

Out of balance much…I think so…

Anyways, hope you want to go on this journey of learning with me.

Tomorrow I’m going to share the new year questions I ask myself every year to provide scope, shape and inspiration to my little life.

Hope we can learn together.

Day 1 of 366

365 to go.

Happy novice learning together everyone.
