It’s a year ago today. The day I chose to go into hospital to have my baby cut out of me. The day I had the most amazing birth imaginable.
In line with the contents of my more recent diet, this post is called Nachos and Beer. OK, maybe there wasn’t that much beer (or not as much as I would have liked), but nachos definitely played a recurring role in my daily regime.
Having a new baby kind of throws you off a little (a lot!) And so it happened that I completely missed Gangnam Style – a Korean dance craze that apparently even got Madonna and Britney Spears moving like morons. It might not be news to you, but I sincerely enjoy this. Ahhh, living on two […]
Our newest family member has arrived last Wednesday. The birth was an amazing experience (more on that later), and I arrived home on a high on Saturday.
Can you read the look on my face? It says ‘I’ve had enough’. I am 38 weeks and three days today and only a few days away from my planned C-section. Amazing to think that my last pregnancy was exactly four weeks longer than this one – and that it didn’t really bother me back […]

And that’s where the problem lay. Don’t laugh. If you were carrying what feels like a watermelon between your legs – a […]
Last night I dreamed that we had a burglary. Funnily enough, all the robbers seemed to be keen on was baby clothes. Plus the car seat, the cot, the breast pump and the baby monitor. To say I am slightly panicky about the prospect of having another child is an understatement. It’s not so much […]
We found out on Tuesday that placenta previa is no longer the case, i.e. baby girl is allowed to cook a little longer than the initially assumed 37 weeks. In fact, we have got a date for her birth, which feels reassuring and weird at the same time. Baby Pea will be born at just […]
