Our baby shower ..

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, mainly cos’ the past 2 months have been quite hectic and crazy. It was a month yesterday until our due date, and we are officially in our ”due month” from tomorrow, which is quite bloody scary/exciting/surreal!

So I took my last holiday week off from work at the beginning of December, and it was lovely as my sister and Alyshia (my cousin-in-law) came over and was lovely to spend some time with my family and just to chill, not much chilling was done, but alot of stuff got sorted and we finally started on the nursery and it made me feel loads better.

Dad said when Tiff had booked her flights, that on the Wednesday, not to make any plans as he was taking us out for lunch somewhere posh, and to dress up nice. So, on the
Wednesday, I got up, we started getting ready, I’d had a shit nights sleep, had finally got ready, we had to leave the house at 2, and at 10 to 2 my body decided to be sick, all over my leggings and bathroom floor, not fuckin nice I tell you! So now I’m panicking, I got changed, scrubbed the bathroom while Arkaitz just kept saying hurry up we’ve got to leave at 2! So we eventually got out of the house, made our way over to Mum & Dad’s, and as I walked in, it had been turned into what I can only describe as a pink paradise! They had arranged a surprise baby shower! I have never seen so much pink before, it was so beautiful and so many little details, as I walked in, my sister grabbed me and said come with us, the biggest surprise is in the bedroom, so by now I’m thinking what the hell else could they surprise me with! Well as they opened the door, my Mum & Dad’s room was full of my lovely friends and they shouted surprise and I’m quite surprised I didn’t wee myself! It was such a lovely surprise and so nice to see them all and we had such a lovely day with some funny games, lots of food and being absolutely overwhelmed by everyone’s kindness and lovely presents! Needless to say, our girly doesn’t need any more clothes! She has more clothes than all of us!

I can’t believe they had been planning it all since August! Normally I find out everything, I’m like the FBI but I honestly didn’t have a clue and I’m so glad! It was so nice for Arkaitz to be involved in everything too, he got a bit overwhelmed, he knew about the baby shower but didn’t expect what we walked into. Such a lovely day and so many memories were made.

We are so grateful to be surrounded by such amazing supportive people and we know that our little girl is going to have the best people in her life. xx

Pregnancy diary – Week 32 ..

What a bumpy few weeks it’s been (pardon the pun) ..

First of all my belly seems to have really popped, it was literally from the Saturday to the Tuesday I noticed it growing, and now I get that feeling every few days, the tight itchy belly feeling which has unfortunately been affecting my hips badly. My midwife says unfortunately this is normal and to go for walks and keep bouncing on my ball.

I have managed to get alot done over the last few weeks, looking back. It’s nice to see the spare room finally looking like a nursery. We have ordered our pram, we have gone with the Mothercare Journey 3-in-1 in black/chrome, it looks lovely, can’t wait to see it on Monday when it’s delivered. Completely out of my comfort zone as I havent actually seen it myself, but Mum & Dad have, and there have been some very good reviews on it on the Mummy groups I’ve joined on Facebook. These groups have really helped me to keep it real to be honest with you. I’ve stopped putting so much pressure on myself, stopped comparing our situation and our home and our nursery to Pinterest and Instagram (I’ve actually deleted Pinterest which is a big step for me, not going to be deleting Instagram though) and starting focusing on how we want it and what we both want in there for our baby girl, and more importantly what our baby girl needs.

There are plenty of other things we need to tick off our lists, literally, but I’m not beating myself up for not having my shit together. Rome wasn’t built in a day after all. I set myself little goals instead, whether it be taking baby grows out of their packaging so it’s all ready to wash and putting it in the drawers, or even just doing some washing, I then feel like I’ve achieved something. I’ve accepted I can’t do it all, and it has taken such a weight off my shoulders. Arkaitz has been helping me out so much more lately, whether it be helping me get off the sofa (baby bellies are bloody heavy, especially if you have hip problems) to him simply cooking dinner, washing up or taking the rubbish helps loads, and the fact I’m letting him do it instead of taking control of everything is a big step even though it might not seem like it.

I had my midwife appointment yesterday, and our little one’s doing fine, we have got some more blood/wee tests coming up at the end of December, but everything seems fine with both of us. I have been given a prescription of Ranitidine to hopefully ease my acid reflux which has been awful, and I’m booked in to have my flu and whooping cough jab next week, which I’m quite sceptical about ..

be gentle

So tomorrow is my last day at work before I have a week off. It’s a half day, I’m getting my hair done, and then my lovely sister is coming over on Saturday so I’m so looking forward to just having some time out, and some family time, making memories and breaking the routine a little bit.

This post might seem quite silly and pointless to other people, but it’s a big achievement for me to just get home from work and if I want to get a few pizzas and watch Netflix on the sofa instead of getting myself into a pickle overdoing it cos’ I’m tired from work, then that’s what I’m going to do – Got to make the most of it after all haven’t I? As I still keep being told ….

Organisation is key …

Organisation is key, I keep getting told, and I keep telling myself.

We went to Ikea a few weeks ago and got nugget’s wardrobe and chest of drawers we will be using as a changing unit, so now all the stuff that was just in boxes and on the floor are organised in drawers, and on cute little hangers in her wardrobe. So that helped me feel like I had my shit together for about 5 minutes, until I saw all the empty space I have.

20171020_181705.jpg

(Grandparents to be after our trip to Ikea!!)

So because of work etc and most of my weekends being taken up by doing stuff or just sleeping because holy shit I’m tired, I’ve been doing lists. So many lists, I’m even doing a list of lists I need to make. Oh and I’ve just found I need to do a list for my hospital bag, plus buy a hospital bag which I hadn’t even thought of!!

It helps. Well it helps until you lose half of the list you’ve started.

Pinterest has been my best friend, but then it’s also been my worst enemy at the same time, because everything is looking so perfect on there and I don’t know how the hell I can compare so I’m trying not to. The lists are helpful, as there are things I haven’t even thought of, but I have shown them to my mum and my friends who have babies, and they’ve pointed out at least 10 things on there I don’t need straight away, or don’t need at all. One of my friends Jayne, has told me to stay away from pinterest and has, let’s say, edited “the list” (see photo below!) – You can read her blog too on Facebook or on here https://littlevampsmum.wordpress.com

lists (1)lists (2)

For example I saw a lady selling a humidifier the other day, and I said to my Dad ”Oh that’s a good price” , his reply was ”And what does that do then?” and honestly, I didn’t have a clue! – So needless to say, I didn’t buy it!

The main priority at the moment is getting our pram sorted, we’ve seen one in Carrefour, and on Saturday we went to Toysrus in Elche and I thought right today is the day, I’m going to get the bottles sorted and the pram, I thought the staff would be really helpful and not be too pushy and there would be lots of choice and I would come out feeling refreshed and knowing what we wanted. Well it couldn’t have been further from the truth. The store in Elche is massive, it feels dirty, I think we saw one shop assistant and she was on the tills, and there were more electric remote controlled cars than pushchairs, so yeah, figure that one out. We went to Kiabi after, they have lovely stuff, we got a cute little tracksuit for our girl, and then made our way home. Cue the meltdown on the motorway. I can’t help but feel like I’m a bad mum already because I’m no way near prepared for our girl’s arrival, and it’s not through the lack of trying. Everything is so new and I have to admit I’m completely out of my comfort zone.

Me and my Mum went into Alcampo yesterday, and boom, there it was. A lovely 3-in-1 pram, fab price, and it’s in black, so it will be easy to accesorize etc. So that will be ordered soon, and then that’s one of the main things sorted.

I’ve booked my final week off before my maternity leave so I can’t wait to just have some days getting organised and finally getting my shit together so I can enjoy the last weeks of our pregnancy. Have just found out my sister is coming over for the week too so some family time is what we all need so very much looking forward to that (and to filling her suitcase!!)

I’m not superwoman, and why should I be? ..

I’m back. I am hormonal. I am tired. My feet are swollen. I’m not superwoman. I can’t do everything, and do you know what? Why the fuck should I have to.
As women, we get on with shit, yes we moan about it, and ”nag” and ”act crazy” but we get shit done, it’s just what we do. But there comes a time when you need a bit of help, and you shouldn’t have to ask for it.
I was in Aldi doing the food shop the other week, it was the first time I noticed I should slow down a bit, it wasn’t my belly hurt when I lifted the stuff onto the conveyor belt, but I was more aware of it. Aldi is a task anyway, especially once you get to that till and you have approx 10 seconds to grab your stuff put it in a bag, get your money/card out, pay for it, before theyre either stood there tapping on the till impatiently, or shoving some other poor bugger’s shopping at you. So I dread it every time, Mercadona is alot better (depending on who you get) but I thought no, fuck it, plus I fancied there fresh lasagne (if you haven’t tried it what are you waiting for?!)
So anyway, I was stood in the queue, ready for the mission ahead, and there was a guy behind me with a few items, I normally let people like this go before me but it was too late as the cashier had already started, and he could see I was getting myself into a pickle, and he just stepped in, and asked if he could help me, I was in shock (also wondering if this is the sort of this where u get distracted and they nick your purse) but no, he started packing my bags for me, and when the cashier started staring at me impatiently waiting for me to pay he simply told me ”no, pack your stuff into your trolley first before you pay, there’s no rush” while he carried on helping me, and do you know what? Something so simple from someone I don’t know, really restored my faith in humanity. It might not sound like alot to people, and it somehow makes it worse when people are impatient and rude, because you realise it’s not hard to be nice, and how one simple act of kindness can change someone’s day without you realising it.
I don’t really know what the point of this post is, but what I’m simply saying is if you see someone is having a tough day and needs even a few little words of encouragement, say them. If you see a plate needs washing up, wash it. Someone looks like they need 5 minutes out and a cup of tea? Put that kettle on. If your girlfriend/wife looks tired at the end of the day, cook dinner, it doesn’t have to be anything big or fancy, not all these gestures need to be instagram-worthy like buying expensive jewellry or taking us out to expensive restaurants (this would also be nice haha!), sometimes it’s just the little things that mean the most.
And to the man in Aldi, I didn’t get your name : Thank you, there should be more people like you in this world.

What about him? …

When it comes to pregnancy, people tend to focus alot on the woman. Of course I know it’s the woman that gives birth, and carries the baby for 9 months, but it’s about the man too, after all if it wasn’t for him there would be no baby!

I have been asked so much about all of the decisions, breastfeeding, type of birth, have we chosen a name yet? (the most annoying one recently!), how I’m feeling /why don’t people ask him how he’s feeling too?) and when I tell him at the end of the day about all the questions, he doesn’t seem to get it because he’s not asked them at all.

It’s a big change for both of us, and they are all decisions that need to be made as a couple – we are both going to be parents to our little girl after all! Which is another thing I’ve noticed that is bloody annoying! When the dad’s look after the baby they’re “babysitting” .. no they’re not, they’re fucking parenting!! It’s not just the Mum that is the parent!

When it comes to alot of the decisions, like recently I have been looking at nursery furniture etc, he is very chilled out about everything, says how we can wait etc and we don’t need to get everything now, it’s probably the control freak in me but I want to get everything organised asap as organisation helps me feel alot better and relaxed when I know most of the stuff is done and what else needs to be done/bought. It’s good in a way that he’s relaxed because he helps me to calm down, if we were both worriers and control freaks then it would be a nightmare!

Also now we are feeling the baby move more now, the best part of our day is when we are chilling out in the evening, and can feel our little nugget move and he gets so excited about feeling it too, although there was a big kick the other day which I think freaked him out a little bit!

I think all men who have had pregnant partners just need a highfive because shit, I don’t know how Arkaitz has put up with my moodswings lately! From throwing baguettes to taking it out on the fridge, he’s still by my side and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

 

 

It’s nice to see there are more Facebook pages made by men that talk open about pregnancy and parenting, my favourites are :

So yeah, that’s my soppy men appreciation post over, normal ranty list posts will be resumed shortly! (Please note I am quite clearly in a calm, loving state right now, but that can change in 5 to 10 minutes so let’s embrace this nice feeling while it lasts, I’ll be moaning about him again soon!! )

Pregnancy Diary – Kids&Co Baby Fair ..

PLEASE NOTE : NIPPLE TALK AHEAD!

 

Hello!

Quite alot to cover in this post so I thought I’d do a pregnancy diary post, as you do.

On Friday I went out with the girls from work to raise money for their trip to Gambia, and it was quite nice to be drinking hot chocolate on a night out while they were all on the vodka haha.

On Saturday I went to the Kids&Co baby/toddler fair at the IFA in Alicante. I thought I would go there, see everything I wanted and leave with a clear head. I left feeling so overwhelmed and confused, it was all too much. It was really good, but there were so many stalls and so much stuff I left with a very fried head and a load of leaflets, oh and some samples of nipple cream! One lady who was giving out information on massages to relieve colic started to speak to me, and she said to me ”Hola! Cómo estás? Bueno, gordita!” while staring at my stomach … (Hi, How are you? Well a bit fat!) .. which I think was very brave and extremely stupid considering there were about 200 or more pregnant, hormonal women in the room, so I’d be surprised if she didn’t leave without a black eye, and I’ll be even more surprised if people go to her clinic! I don’t see why people need to comment on stuff really. There were also people there offering free 5 minute 4d scan sessions, which I thought was very weird as they had load of people gathering around watching, and even taking pictures/videoing other people’s scans. I just think it’s too much, it’s such a personal thing when you have your scan, but each to their own I guess.

We then went to Aljub to have a look round the shops and have a well deserved McDonalds and then headed home. I bought a nice bargain jumper in Primark, so was happy with that.

I was so tired from the night before and from walking round all day and just wanted to have a night in bed watching films and eating crappy food, then Mum asked me if I wanted to go for a curry, and all of a sudden I felt so emotional and overwhelmed with everything, a night in on my own was the last thing I needed, so we went out and had a lovely meal.

I got home, (after kidnapping the dog!), and put Juno on and snuggled up in bed, while I ate some mini chocolate muffins (if they’re mini you can have double the amount right?) I went to turn over and noticed my arm felt weirdly cold/damp. So at half past 1 in the morning the milk man has decided to come in, I had my first bit of milk come through and my reaction? I sobbed like a baby (pardon the pun!) I did not expect it at all, and after all the baby stuff frying my head that day, I didn’t know what else to do but cry, and ring Arkaitz. Sure that was an interesting phonecall he got while he was fishing! So he came home and I felt alot better the next day after having a good nights sleep I felt a bit more stable (only a bit!). We went shopping and Arkaitz picked out some cute Minnie Mouse baby grows for nugget to match her teddy my mum has bought for her.

So it would appear I am in the next phase now, which is the emotional weepy stage, so this will be fun!

Current craving is banana custard and macaroni cheese (not together!)

So that’s the update on my week! Sorry for the milk/nipple talk!

Words I never thought I’d say ..

Pregnancy changes people .. here are a few things that show just how things have changed!

  • “Can you order a glass of red wine please so I can smell it?” The last 2 weeks or so, I have been craving smells, not actually eating things, the most recent one is red wine. Please note pre-pregnancy I didn’t like red wine, I know I still don’t like it now, but that smell, give it to me!
  • “Aw I love how big my belly is in this!” This came after I started wearing more fitted clothes instead of trying to hide under loose tops etc. I’ve always been aware of my podge but now I love it and am proud of it 🙂
  • “I have some spare knickers in my bag” One of the many incontinence related sentences that have come out of my mouth. Yes, I keep weeing myself, it’s not pretty, and I’m not proud of it, so I carry a spare pair of knickers in my bag. Classy bird!
  • “Wow, look how hairy my belly is!” NOBODY WARNS YOU ABOUT THIS PEOPLE!! It appeared literally over night, and now I’m sort of getting used to it.
  • “Did you just hear my hips crack?!” Another little wonder nobody warns you about. 
  • “Oooh breast pads are on offer!” Pre-pregnancy me would be excited about candles being reduced, and cushions (I still am!) but I never thought I’d get that excited about breast pads being on offer! Still rather worried about this one.
  • “Ffs I’ve weed myself again” Yet another incontinence related sentence. It can be a sneeze, a laugh, a cough, or even nothing!! 
  • “I’d better do that now before I run out of energy!” My energy lasts about the same as an Iphone battery. I can be full of beans one minute and then I blink and it’s just gone, zero. Normally once I’ve started one of those jobs you wish you hadn’t started!
  • “I love feeling her move about” Before I was pregnant, the thought of feeling a baby moving around inside me freaked me out big time, I know I’ve only just started feeling the little wriggles so far, but I love feeling her move about in the evenings when I sit down to relax. Not sure how I will feel once I can start seeing loads of movements mind, but one step at a time!
  • “I think I overreacted a little bit” Hahahhaha you’re havin’ a laugh aren’t you? I’d never say this. Pregnant women don’t overreact.

Pregnancy Diary / Week 21 ..

This week has been our most exciting one yet. It started with our scan on Monday, and then of course the 4d scan I did the post about on Monday evening, and then on Tuesday evening my Mum & Dad came over from England. I put some pink balloons in my boot to let them know they were having a granddaughter and we all screamed and cried a bit haha.

On Thursday night it was a bit eventful, went to bed earlier than normal, and I woke up in an absolute panic because I couldn’t move due to a really bad cramping sensation in my left side. I woke Arkaitz up and he thought I was joking, then realised I was serious and couldn’t move, so he managed to lift me up and walk me to my ball, that I had a little bounce on, and I made myself a hot water bottle and managed to sleep again. The next day I was still a bit achey but it eased after work when I was moving about a bit more, not very nice though,  if it happens again I will definitely go to the doctors.

On Friday night I went for a curry with Mum & Dad and I finally had my lamb tikka masala I’ve been craving for months, Saturday went shopping with Mum, which was nice as we could finally look at some pink stuff!! Had a lovely meal out on Saturday night, at El Patio in Los Narejos, and today (Sunday) we’ve just had a bit of a sort out this morning and a chill day.

As I’m showing a bit more now, when me & Mum went car booting on Saturday, as we haven’t been in a while, one of the lady’s simply pointed at my belly when we were walking over to her stall, and another man mentioned the new baby cards while we were looking, as he pointed at my belly. I’m sure they meant well, but it’s still taking some getting used to I suppose.

I have felt our little girl move more this week, more in the day time now and not just at night, which is lovely, and it feels like I’m carrying 4 potatoes now. I saw the midwife on Wednesday and she said I’ve put on another kilo since my last appointment, so I weigh 70 kgs, nearly back at my original weight before I was pregnant! As I’m not able to take pregnancy vitamins, I’ve upped the folic acid intake in my diet so have bought lots of spinach, broccoli, lentils and muesli, I didn’t realise how much folic acid was in cereals!

No cravings or aversions this week, all in all quite a good week.(Except for Thursday)

So we are going to catch up on last night’s X Factor now and have some Tomato soup and fresh baguette for dinner, and I’ll probably do a facemask too!

Freebies/Canastillas..

Good Afternoon!

One of the things I will put my hands up and say about being pregnant for the first time is .. “I haven’t got a clue!” There are so many brands of absolutely everything, and so many different types of everything, and especially with the things that are recommended being changed pretty much every year, it can be bloody baffling knowing where to start.

A good thing is, quite a few companies are willing to send out freebies/samples of stuff, so you can get a bit of an idea on the best option for your baby (and you!)

I have done a little (big!) list of the best websites to sign up to to get samples and freebies sent out, I know I am based in Spain but luckily with Mum & Dad flying over quite often, I have signed up to some English sites too, some websites just bombard you with emails, but I have received some pretty cute little gifts too. Here’s a list below of what I have signed up to, what I have received, and what I have unsubscribed for.

  • Cow & Gate (UK) – This was recommended to me by my cousin’s wife, Alyshia, and I received a cute little cow teddy, a magazine and a pregnancy diary. I have now unsubscribed as they sent quite alot of spam post and emails.
  • Todo Papás (Spain) – After putting my address and details in, I was sent an email by them saying I could collect a hamper box/canastilla from Zippy at La Zenia Boulevard, the box (photo below) included : A Philips Avent bottle, 3 nappies, infusion samples and a dummy. While we were there we bought baby some socks (I’m obsessed with baby socks) and they gave us a 60 cent voucher, not alot but every penny counts hey!
  • Emma’s Diary (UK) – This page is linked to Argos, so you have access to lots of Argos discount vouchers, you can also collect 3 hamper bags from Boots, but my mum hasn’t collected them yet. From reading people’s reviews online, there are mixed reviews, some people receive nice stuff, others not so much. I was also automatically subscribed to The Baby & Toddler Show emails, so I have unsubscribed from both.
  • Mi Bebé y Yo (Spain) – When you sign up to this one, you get a free 6 month magazine subscription, and you will also received a hamper when the baby is 6 months old. This company is linked to the midwife, she gave me a pink hamper when I had my appointment last week, which included A Frosch bottle cleaner, Pilopeptan Hair Capsules, Dodot Nappy, Suavinex Dummy, Suavinex Samples, Lottery for a jamón the weight of your baby (???), a baby on board sign, Blevit Tea Samples, Bepanthol Nappy Cream Sample and a bottle of water. There is also a leaflet for drim.es. When we went for our 4d scan, we got given another hamper box, this one was blue and included a chicco dummy, bio oil sample, Bepanthol Nappy Cream, 10 € voucher for Kiabi (on purchases over 40 euros), Norit Detergent Sample, Chicco Breast Pad 2 pack, Dodot Sensitive Baby Wipes, a Dodot nappy, Oral B Pro Expert 15 ml sample, and a bottle of water. Photos are below.
  • Drim (Spain) – I signed up for these through my Mi Bebé y Yo pink box, there was a leaflet in there with a code to receive a free toy of our choice. I have ordered a bath thermometer, it’s free postage too and should be here this week, will keep you informed.
  • Nestlé Bebé (Spain) – We received a bib, a fridge magnet, a baby on board sign, and a growth chart. Quite a cute little pack we received for this one, and not many emails either.
  • SMA Baby Club (UK) – We received a cute little welcome pack of baby milestone cards. Have unsubscribed now though as I kept getting lots of emails!

These are the ones I have signed up to that have sent us stuff so far. I’ve subscribed to alot more, but unsubscribed as they just bombard you with emails. If I received any more stuff I will let you know 🙂

Pink or blue – the 4d scan ..

Hello!

Yesterday was the big day and a day I think none of us will forget, it was the big reveal, the pink or blue, the gender scan! With everything there was such a build up and the night before felt like Christmas Eve just because we were going to see our nugget again. So we get to the hospital, got called in straight away, everything’s running smoothly. She asked us the question “do you want to know if it’s a niño or niña?” We say of course …. then she goes quiet … Turns out we have a very shy baby and I have a very awkward placenta at the front so …. SHE CAN’T CONFIRM! She said what she thought it was, but she couldn’t confirm it!

So she told us that everything was fine and healthy with the baby, which is the most important thing, but we came out and althought none of us said it, we felt deflated, and confused, after such a build up, to then be told she doesn’t know.

So when I got back to work, I did some investigating, I looked up 4d scans, I’d had a nosey around at them before but didn’t really know where were the nearest ones etc.

We found one in Elche, called Econóceme4D, and it was 59 euros for a 25 minute session, including all of the photos, and a hamper/canastilla. I rung them, and the woman was so friendly straight away, she could tell I was a bit of a looney on the phone when I spoke to her at 4 asking for an appointment that evening, so she said she could fit us in at 6.15.

We got there, wasn’t too bad to park as I thought, quite easy to find with my navigation skills (thank God for Google maps!) and from the second we walked in we felt at ease. She called us in, and explained a little bit about the promotions, we just said basically we only wanted to confirm the sex after what had happened in the morning.

She pretty much called it straight away .. we are having a little …. girl!  I couldn’t believe it! That was what the doctor had said in the morning as well but of course we needed it confirmed. More than anything because my parents are coming over today and I’m doing a big gender reveal to them in the boot of my car, so needed to know what colour balloons to buy! 😀

So we have a very shy little girl, who had her hand over her face alot, and she even gave us a little pout when we got a photo of her. I can seriously recommend it to everyone, it wasn’t as expensive as I thought it would be and it’s such an amazing experience!

Their website is http://www.econoceme4d.com and they are on Calle Vicente Blasco Ibáñez, 14, 03201 Elche, Alacant, and the phone number is 966094608 or 637612363. They are also in Torrevieja and Pilar de la Horadada (the same phone number) but Elche is the only one open Monday to Saturday, with longer opening hours.

Now we finally know, it’s time to start properly on the nursery and filling her little wardrobe! How exciting! ❤
