22 Weeks Pregnant - Baby #4

Baby
This week baby is almost 430g and measures around 27.8cm long. Baby looks exactly like a newborn, just smaller and skinnier. Fingernails have now grown to the edge of the finger tips and the eyes are formed although colourless. Baby is also continuing to swallow fluid.


Symptoms 
I've had a little more nausea again this week, tiredness brought it on this week. I've also had some pretty painful hip and back pain which I think is here to stay. Its happened for a few weeks now but is getting more and more noticeable. The wrist pain seems to have calmed down a lot which is nice although I do still have some tingly feelings in them every once in a while. Paige also finally felt the baby this week, she would never sit long enough before.

Boots Mini Club Review - Autumn/Winter 2018

Harleigh was recently sent some gorgeous items from Boots Mini Club and the Fearne by Fearne Cotton range. 

She received the most gorgeous Parka, which I will admit is my favourite item. So much so that I actually wish they made an adult version! We would look super cute matching!



We have had so many compliments on the coat too, people love the pop of pink on the hood. I am going to be so sad when she outgrows it. The colours and quality are amazing and it keeps her lovely and warm. 

We were also sent some leggings and top. I love this little outfit together and Harleigh looks super cute wearing it! They aren’t the usual colours I would go for and I love that Boots doesn’t just so the typical pink for girls but they are still really sweet outfits. 



The clothes have washed and dried really well and we couldn’t be happier! I can’t wait for her to wear them more and more.

21 Weeks Pregnant - Baby 4

Baby
This week baby is 26.7cm long and weighing in at 360g. The eyebrows are getting thicker and the eyes are moving rapidly under the eye lids. The baby will overtake the placenta growth from now on and become bigger and bigger. 




Symptoms
I had some more nausea this week thanks to a garlic spray. It was a big trigger for me in the first trimester and it seems like it still is now. I've had more heartburn, which I think will be a constant symptom for me now. More constipation and a new symptom this week is wrist pain. Carpal tunnel is really common in pregnancy but I've never experienced it before, until now. We also saw the baby moving from the outside!!

Little Chick London Bed Side Crib First Impressions

When you become pregnant loads of things run through your mind, even fourth time around I can’t help but have a thousand thoughts running through my mind, even though we have done this three times before.


We were recently sent the bed side crib from Little Chick London and I can’t wait for baby to arrive to test it out but for now I wanted to do a little first impressions post. 

With the other children we’ve always used moses baskets and whilst I don’t have a problem with them babies tend to grow out of them very, very quickly. It seems like such a waste. We  also have quite fidgety babies too so as soon as they kick their legs on the sides they make so much noise during the night, even when they are asleep. Yet the noise keeps me awake.


The Little Chick London bedside crib is bigger than the standard Moses basket or crib so hopefully we won’t have that problem. Baby will have plenty of room to grow and move around. 

It also has breathable mesh sides to allow proper air flow and temperature control. 

It folds for storage and the covers can also be washed, we all know how messy babies can be so this is a real plus. 


The crib seems really great so far. You have to put it together when it arrives but it was so simple that me and the kids did it whilst mark had a soak in the bath! It didn't take long at all and the instructions are really easy to follow.


The design of the crib is really lovely and modern and they have a couple of different colour options too which is nice. We went for cool white as I thought that would fit with upstairs and even downstairs too. As the crib folds we could easily take it downstairs if we wanted baby to use it down there.

I am so excited for baby to arrive to test the crib out properly and can’t wait to see little baby sleeping peacefully inside. 

Do you prefer bed side cribs or moses baskets?
