Siblings - January 2019

The first sibling post of 2019 and one of the last ones as a three. Baby is due at the beginning of March so we will only have next months post to go and then March should include baby! I am so excited to see them altogether and we actually got a little peek at how that might look.



I love this little picture so much. I love that Harleigh is hiding and Paige is laughing at her. I also love that Parker is smiling at the picture of the baby. 

This past month we've had the school holidays, which was lovely and went by so quickly. That also included Christmas. Mark had some time off and the kids loved spending some extra time with him and each other!



We also went on some lovely family walks and just enjoyed time together and tried to soak up the time as a five.

30 Weeks Pregnant - Baby #4

Baby
This week the baby is around 39.9cm long and weighs 2.9lbs. The eyesight is still developing but if you shine a light on your belly baby might move in response.


Symptoms
I can't believe that we only have around 10 weeks left! We still have lots to get ready.
I feel a lot bigger this week, baby is in my ribs and i can really tell that my uterus is growing more and more. I've also had more nausea and was almost sick. My feet are usually quite itchy at night time along with quite restless legs. Its so hard to fall asleep. I weighed myself this week and so far i've gained around 19lbs which is perfect and right on track!

29 Weeks Pregnant - Baby #4

Baby
This week baby is around 2.5lbs and 38.6cm long. The brain is growing more and more complex and this requires a lot of energy from baby. Bones are continuing to harden.


Symptoms 
This week i've had a lot of nausea again, I think it's here to stay now. My hands are still dry but my skin is clearing a little. My gums are also bleeding again and I can smell everything, I feel like i'm back in the first trimester all over again. 

We had a 4d scan this week and saw baby again which was amazing. It was so good too see baby again and to have our first 4d scan, we've never had one before so it was amazing. The kids came along too and loved it!

28 Weeks Pregnant - Baby #4

Baby
This week baby is measuring around 2.2lbs and is 37.6cm long. The heart rate is slightly slower now but still around twice as fast as mine. Baby also has eyelashes and can produce tears. Hiccups are also very common to feel from now.


Symptoms
My belly has itched even more this week, right near my belly button. I'm also getting that dark line, although it is still very faint and just on the lower half of my belly. My skin still isn't great and is quite dry. My hands and feet are also very dry too. I get pins and needles in my arm if I rest a certain way on the sofa and my pelvis is quite sore this week, especially if im sat on the floor or stood for a while. My sleep is still very up and down, I toss and turn a lot. Baby is still moving up a storm and gets hiccups around twice a day now.

Me and Mine - December 2018

December went by so quickly that I totally forgot about my me and mine post. December was a lovely month and went by so quickly as we were so busy. 

We had our God Daughters second birthday, Christmas, time with family, road trips, a meal out and even a few cheeky take away nights which were lovely.


Christmas was lovely this year, hectic but I don't think that will change with 4 children next year! We spent it at home, just the five of us, something which we do every year and we wouldn't have it any other way. We spent Boxing Day with my dad and his partner which was lovely too. I really wanted to get a picture by the tree which my bump in too which we totally managed!! 


I am very much looking forward to January. We will celebrate my best friend hopefully having her baby and Marks birthday. It will also bring us a month closer to meeting our little one. I can't believe that soon we will have another little member of the family. I wonder when they will arrive.

2018 was a good year. We didn't really plan on getting pregnant when 2018 started but everything happens for a reason. We enjoyed some lovely family days and a lovely holiday at bluestone. Harleigh also started walking and eventually talking. Parker started full time school and Paige lost her first two teeth. I don't know what 2019 will hold, apart from a new little family member, let's wait and see!
