Welcome to the World Evelyn and Rose Williams

Welcome to the World Evelyn and Rose Williams

I started this on 11th April, 5 days after our planned C-section date. Our little girls, however, didn’t want to wait that long and on 14th March at just 34 weeks old, Evelyn and Rose arrived, stealing our hearts. As I type, Ryan is back […]

The Fifth Pregnancy Post: Month 7 Weeks 27 – 30

We’re officially in our third trimester, whoop whoop – good job Babies 🙌🏼! Wednesday is our bumpdate day, the day when we reach another milestone. Today’s milestone: 30 weeks! In my mind I’ve always had 28 weeks as the most important date, a safety marker. […]

Calling All Mamas!

Today we are 28 weeks pregnant and I should have had our hospital bags packed already – I hate being unorganised. The only thing that makes me feel slightly better is that we finally have the cots (ready for Ryan to build this weekend) and […]

The Fourth Pregnancy Post: Month 6 Weeks 22 – 26

As I start to write this, we are 25 weeks pregnant and have just got home from a last minute consultant appointment which has left me feeling a little flat – but more on that later. We’re now well over half way through the pregnancy […]

The Third Pregnancy Post: Month 5 Weeks 18 – 21

I’ve just realised there seems to be different views on which weeks correspond to which months – it’s bizarre, some sources say 5 months is 18-21 weeks, others 22-25. I’m just going to stick with the one that I’ve been looking at … below! This […]

The Second Pregnancy Post: Month 4 Weeks 14-17

4 months have been and gone. We seem to be so focused on getting from one appointment date to the next, that while time seems to be moving on fast forward, it also seems to be moving slowly. I don’t mean to wish away my […]

The First Pregnancy Post: Trimester 1 “There are 2 babies”

I’ve been wanting to get a post out for ages, looking forward to blogging and instagramming my way through pregnancy into motherhood and actual adult life. Sometimes it randomly dawns on me, I will actually be responsible for life, not just 1 life, but 2… […]

So that’s why I’ve been so out of breath!

So that’s why I’ve been so out of breath!

We’d decided to wait until Monday to do a test, by which point I would have been over a week late. We’d just got married, were on honeymoon and I thought perhaps it was all of the excitement of the last few weeks doing funny […]

3 months, 1 Wedding, 1 Honeymoon, 2 Countries and 2 massive surprises

It’s been so long since I’ve written a post – the last was a 30 day countdown to our Wedding Day. Since our big day on Friday 11th August, our life has been completely taken over by a new, exciting adventure. I had planned on […]

30 Day Countdown

30 Day Countdown

On 2nd July Ryan and I spent the day in Richmond to celebrate it being one year since we got engaged. We’ve never celebrated an anniversary but this seemed like one that we needed to do a little something for. As we wandered around my […]
