41 Week Pregnancy Update...



How Far?
41 Weeks!

Due date?

24th December, Christmas Eve!
Gender?
Girl!

Sleep?
I feel like all i want to do is sleep!! Today is the first time we've left the house since Christmas day and that's only because i had to go to the midwife.All ive done is lay around the house (well as much as you can with a 3 & 4 year old to look after ). I seem to be so sleepy through the day then the later it gets i start to wake up.

Movement?
She seems to go crazy for a while then nothing. Like she wakes up has a good wriggle about and goes back to sleep. Last night especially she was waking up and moving like a crazy woman for ages so i could sleep.

Cravings?
I really want a mint aero krushem ... so nice. Ive only had one butif i could have them all day everyday i would!

Symptoms?
The pain in my legs is still there from the SPD which is the worse thing but i seem to be able to manage it better now to stop it hurting as much. Ive had heartburn alot too.

Looking Forward too?
 Holding my little baby!!!

This week
Has been a lazy week, ive been trying to get the house all ready and spotless but that just seems impossible when theres 3 boys and a dog to constantly follow around lol. Its always harder when theres no school/work because everyones home all the time so by time ive finished a room something needs doing again in the one ive just done aghh!! Ive pretty much got my bags packed and ready, i found it hard to fit everything in one bag this time, i think it might be because its winter so clothes/blankets are thicker taking up more room so ive put the things im going to wear to come home in and baby's coming home sleepsuit/coat in a different bag that can be left in the car until its needed then Jason can bring it in when its needed. Ive just been to see the midwife and everythings fine, she did a stretch and sweep to hopefully get things moving. I have one with both the boys.. with Jake it worked and my waters broke that night and with Cambell it didn't and i went 11 days over so im hoping it works but im not as convinced that it will like i was last time i had it. I have been having  a few pains since we got back but will just have to wait and see because ive had then before and they just seem to fade after a while and stop :( . Ive been booked in to be inducted on Saturday 5th Jan which is kind of a special date for me as it would have been my Nana's birthday who baby will be named after :). The only bad thing is Jason is back at work on the 2nd so if the Stretch and sweep does work and if shes born tomorrow im going to be coming home with baby and Jason will have to go back to work which wouldn't be the best having just given birth then coming home to look after three baby's alone straight away, were hoping he will be able to swop shifts with someone so he can get this week off but im not getting my hopes up lol. If nothing happens and i go in on Saturday he will have just come off his last night shift so it will be a veryyy long day for him but at least he will have his four days off to be home with us :).

Merry Christmas...


40 Weeks Pregnancy Update!!..



How Far?
40 Weeks!

Due date?
24th December, Christmas Eve!

Gender?
Girl!

Sleep?
Sleep is fine aslong as i have a thick pillow between my legs other wise im in so much pain the next day!

Movement?
Still plenty of movement, i think it may have slowed down a little but not really.It seems like if i think about her moving she moves :/ .

Cravings?
Not really...

Symptoms?
The pain in my legs is still there, i definitely have spd i cant remember if i mentioned that id seen the midwife last week and she confirmed it. Not that i know what it is and how to help it the pain isnt as bad...most of the time. I still have heart burn too.

Looking Forward too?
The pain in my legs going! Holding my little baby!!!

This week
I had a few contractions on Thursday night but then after a while of laying down they faded away...which i was expecting to happen really. I had it happen like that Cambell when he was overdue for a few nights before i went in to have him and it turned out i was already dilated a few cm so maybe that's happening again. Ive been worrying all week about going into labour today because i didn't want to miss being with the boys on Christmas eve/ Christmas morning so ive been trying to convince myself not to get an epidural so i can be out asap. Im just so scared of the pain.... i know how it is ive been there before and it was awful!!lol ( With Jake the epidural didn't work and it was the worst pain ever then with Cam it did work and it was so much easier and a much better experience! Although its getting late now and she hasn't started coming so im pretty sure il make it through Christmas without going into labour :). I cant believe its actually my due date, its gone so fast and really doesn't feel like it should be lol id be happy to stay pregnant a bit longer if Jason was off work all month but hes back on the 3rd so im hoping she will come soon so he has time with her (as long as its after tomorrow morning,i need to see the boys open there presents ha).So crazy to think she could be here by this time next week! Oh and we still don't have a name!!eekk.

New Bow Phone case...


Iconemsis

Ive wanted to show my new phone case since the minute it arrive as i love it so much but my camera hasn't been working recently :(. How cute is this bows case from Iconemesis ! Ive been through alot of cheaper phone cases in the past but there always seems to be something wrong with them and i have to take them off for some reason.Like if im taking pictures the whole picture will look the colour of the phone case which can get quite annoying so i just end up leaving it off. I was really in need of a good case which fit well and was well made so finding out about Iconmeis came at the perfect time as my iphone has a cracked down the back and needed covering!The cases feel really smooth, good quality and fit around the camera/sound buttons perfectly.The site do lots of different unique case designs for the iphone 4 and 4s as they work with different artists that put there art work onto the cases. The design i choose is by Leah Goren from California and is £24.99, ive just checked the site and they have a 20% off offer on if you use the code  ICON220 . Delivery is also free to the UK .

24th December, Christmas Eve!

Gender?
Girl!

Sleep?
Sleep is fine, its just turning over that is painful because of my legs still.Its much much more painful now!

Still plenty of movement, she went crazy a few nights ago while Jason was watching lol. It freaks him out when she does a little kick so it was really funny to she him, she her move loads!

Cravings?
Ice creammm and milkshake although i haven't had much ice cream and still haven't had a milkshake i really want one!!

Symptoms?
The pain in my legs!! Well its my pelvic area before it left like id been at the gym for hours and i was aching but now its more around my bones and i can feel like grinding together when i turn over etc. I found out a few days ago about spd and when i first saw it i had no idea what spd meant so i looked it up and it sounds exactly the same as the things im experiencing so im 99% sure that is what i have. 

Looking Forward too?
The pain in my legs going! Im hoping i will go once shes born anyway! 

This week
I cant believe were at the last week already! I really feel like it has gone so fast and i should only be half way through. I have my last midwife appointment today so i can hopefully sort something out to make the pain in my legs not as bad.I also need to do the rest, well most of our Christmas shopping! ...  Just back from the midwife baby is fine, she said her head is really low so i suppose were just waiting now :). I told her about my legs been bad and she said it sounds like spd which i was 99% sure it was. My next appointment is for in 2 weeks on New years eve when il be 41 weeks if she isnt here and il get a stretch and sweep then if that doesn't work il be book in for induction when im 12 days over which is 5th Jan. My nanas birthday and also who baby is been named after! so i wouldn't mind going over for baby to be born on a special date. Only problem is Jason's back at work on the 2nd :(.

Bow making and Present Wrapping...


Once again my Phone charger has broken so i have no phone .... again! I swear i must have gone through at least 20 chargers!!  The wires keep coming apart :(. So annoying especially when i have a cute new phone case.Plus i could need to go into hospital anytime now at i really don't want to have to go with no phone lol i need to be able to contact people and take pictures! Hopefully il get a new one in the morning after my last midwife app!!I cant believe how fast this pregnancy has gone i feel like i should be 20 weeks or something. Crazy! Were still searching for a name we both agree on too so if you know any cute names please leave me some ideas lol.We both ave one we like but Jason doesn't like the one i like and although i like the one hes chosen its quite popular which is why i like mine more aghh.
Ive been addicted to making bows this last week, I think they look so cute on a little headband and there so cheap and easy to make. I cant wait to get back to the ribbon shop for different colours. I made a few little red bows to stick onto peoples Christmas presents too :) i think it looks so cute and like more effort has been put into it. Im planning on doing family's presents wrapped like this then the boys in a different paper so they don't think ive wrapped theres.... because obviously the elfs do theres! 
I have soooo much Christmas shopping to do this week still, we still have Jasons side to buy for plus the boys presents, we only have there mail one so far!! .... Getting Jason to go propper Christmas shopping before he really needs to is impossible! I think hel finally realise on Christmas eve lol .

What's in my December GlossyBox?...


I was really excited to open this months box when it came this morning....earlier than i was expecting, which is always good! Holiday boxes are always expected to be a bit more special than usual and for me this months box didn't disappoint! The box this month is all about 'Festive Celebrations'... everything you need to get party ready. I was really shocked to see a Full size sleek palette.I have a few Sleek palettes and i love the formula of them it reminds me of Urban decay shadows, really soft and creamy.The one i got in this months box is the i-Divine Oh so special palette and the shades are so pretty.They are all colours i will use, im actually planning on swopping this up with my everyday palette for a while which is my Naked palette.The only thing i don't like about the Sleek Palettes is the brush's that come with them.
Also really excited to try the Milk_Shake conditioning cream, its like spraying out cream and it smells amazing!!! The Rituals body cream smells really good too, ive never tried anything by them before but ive heard lots of good things about them recently.I love getting nail polishes in beauty boxes and this month Glossybox included a full size Seche polish i got the shade Elegant which is a coppery shade.Its not one id pick out myself but that's why i love getting them in beauty boxes, i always seem to randomly want to do my nails in colours that i wouldn't normally have but thanks to Glossybox i now have :) like the burgundy one i got at the beginning of the year, i wouldn't of bought that but now its one of my faves! Then we have another Anatomicals product this time its there Strawberry lip gloss . I haven't worn it yet so im not sure what its like but it smells good. Finally as a bonus GlossyBox popped in one of there blushers. The shade i have is Glossy Rosewood, a really pretty dusty pink which i cant wait to try out tomorrow :). Overall a fab box!!

Exfoliation...




Skin is made up of an outer layer called the epidermis, which constantly grows and sheds dead cells, and the dermis, which is the layer underneath. As we age, skin regeneration slows down and dead skin cells begin to build up on the surface of the skin. The result: dry and unflattering dull skin that sometimes flakes and gets in the way of our skin’s natural beauty. But there is a solution; regular exfoliation prevents the dead skin cells from building up and allows the skin to shine in the way it was meant to.

Not only does exfoliation remove the dead-skin barrier and the layer of dull and dry cells, it also allows for Johnson’s Body Care moisturising products to penetrate deeper and to moisturise more effectively. The ultimate result: healthy and glowing skin from now, into the golden years.

Some tips to remember when exfoliating: before jumping into the shower or the bath, do a dry body-brushing session all over your body, brushing the skin in a circular motion. The action exfoliates and also helps to increase and improve circulation and fight cellulite. After that, wash away the dull layer with one of Johnson’s moisturising body washes that won’t strip the skin of its natural oils while at the same time, adding another layer of moisture. Post-shower, while the skin is still moist, apply a moisturiser to lock- in the water and protect the skin from the elements. Don’t neglect often-forgotten body parts like the feet and elbows where dead skin cells can easily build-up.

Last but definitely not least, remember regular exercise is not only a great outlet for stress, but it will also gets the blood flowing to the surface of the skin which supports the skin’s rejuvenation and renewing process.






Mini Collection 2000 Haul...


I decided to repurchase the collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer, its my favourite concealer... i find it works better than the high end brands ive tried so i always go back to this! I had a bit of a break while i was using the Estee lauder double wear foundation as i just didn't need it but after switching to the Rimmel wake me up i felt i could use a little over blemishes. As it was on 3 for 2 i picked up the gel liner to try out, my mac fluidline started to dry out a while ago so i was interested in testing out some drug store gel liners to see if they were as good.... and much cheaper! I haven't used this as much as i thought so far, i seem to be reaching for my rimmel scandaleyes. I the product itself is great i think i just need a new liner brush as mine is quite old... whats your favourite brush to apply gel liner?

38 Week Pregnancy Update | Bump ...

How Far?
38 Weeks!

Due date?
24th December, Christmas Eve!

Gender?
Girl!

Sleep?
Sleep is fine, its just turning over that is painful because of my legs.

Movement?
Still plently of movement, she loves to stick her feet,knees, elbows out all the time now when im out shopping etc not just when im sat down.

Cravings?
Probably ice cream! 

Symptoms?
My legs hurt so bad!! its definitely getting worse and worse. I was looking online a few days ago and came across SPD and its sounds like what i cam experiencing. I was quite shock there is an actual name for it i thought it was just with doing too much. I think its definitely worse on a morning, must be how i sleep even thought i sleep with the genni pillow and turning over is so so painful! Although it did used to be for 5 minutes on a morning that it hurt now its all day! If i didn't have that i would feel totally fine and be happy to stay pregnant forever lol. Oh i think i had a few hours of contractions on Sunday night! it started around 9-10 and then they went after i fell asleep. They were deffinitley coming and going around 6-7 minutes apart but i supose they just weren't strong enough to set me into full labour. I had this happen while i was pregnant with Cambell, a few night to a week before he came i was getting contractions then they would stop, usual when i got into the bath it would take them away but when i went to the hospital to be checked i was already around 4cm and was in no pain at all so it must of been those contractions that started and stopped....maybe shes on her way?

Looking forward too?
The boys meeting 'baby sister' seems to be her name at the minute as me and Jason cant pick a name we both like! I have one i like and Jason has one he likes but we cant agree lol. I think i should get to pick as Jason picked the boys names but he doesn't like the name i like haha :(

This week..
We have been trying to get the Christmas shopping done so were all set if 'baby sister' does decided to come early. We have most other peoples now or we know what we are going to get, we just need to go on a big trip to get all the boys presents!Last night me and Jason went out for a meal together to TGI's as Jessica never stops saying how amazing it is! Probably are last night just us to before baby comes....well it will of been. We might just get a Christmas shopping trip or two that we do alone lol if she doesn't come soon! Today im going shopping with Jessica hopefully to get the boys Christmas eve pjs and Christmas day tops. :) ohh ive really been loving making hair bows this week :) ive done a few baby ones and now im hoping to find some clips and different style ribbon so i can make ones a bit bigger to clip on to headbands!

MAC | Powder Blush - Harmony...

Harmony £17
Finally i have my hands on MACs Harmony Blush! Yay!! 

This is one of those products that have been on my ' i really want it...but il get it next time' list for years and alothough its one ive really really wanted ive just never got round to getting. Ive always heard its a good contour colour which is the reason i wanted it, ive never been able to find the perfect contour shade there always either i bit too shimmery, orangey or muddy looking. I was really hoping Harmony would live up what people had said... and it does, yay! Its the perfect shade for getting a good contour, theres no hint of orange at all so you can apply as much as you want and it wont looks like you have a orange mess on your face :).
Deffinitely worth the £17.

My ClaireaBella bag ...


My Claireabella original arrived and i love it :). You might remember a few month ago i did a post on the Claireabella bags for a competition from the #leedsbloggermeetup and i found out at the beginning of November that i won!! I was so excited so i thought i would show you how it turned out :). I wanted her to be dressed more casual as its more 'me' and of course blonde hair blue eyes. I went for the large jute as i wanted to be able to fit plenty of things inside incase i want to use it and need to take baby things out with me. It has plenty of room inside to be able to do  that. I'm so glad its an original and that it was painted my Claire herself , makes it a bit more special. I think these would make a great gift as there personalised. The large classic jute Is £39.99 from Toxic fox  . You can also get kids ones which looks so cute for younger girls.

Due date?
24th December, Christmas Eve!

Gender?
Girl!

Sleep?
Sleeps ok but im always in pain when i wake up, its like the joints at the top of my lefts are so sore and stiff! I hurts so much to even turn over in the night.

This week...
Jason pumped my exercise ball up on Saturday night... my might have seen it in the back ground of the vlogmas vids lol the boys love it. Hoping that will help my back! I have the midwife today although its not my usual on as shes away.Todays the last day l have to walk up the dreaded hill to school pregnant haha its jasons last day shift so il have the car when hes on nights then he can take him up with me :).* Update * just seen the midwife and everything is fine :) she said babys head is on its way down although alot of the time they dont go full down until labour with third pregnancys.She also said third babys seem to come super quick so i might not have time for an epidural which i was hoping for :( the hospital i have to go to where i can get an epidural is abit futher away than the one i had the boys at as they dont do them there anymore so i suppose i will just have to wait until it begins and judge if its worth the longer trip. I rang my mum after to see if i came fast ( i was her third) and she said she only just made it to the hospital in time so maybe she could come super quick lol.
