How much do you know about Pregnancy Health Issues? | AD

*This is a paid post

It feels like yesterday that I was pregnant with Little Man. The years fly by but pregnancy is something that you always remember. From seeing those lines on the test through to the first twinges of labour. I had a pretty textbook pregnancy with both children. But, I realise now that there were a lot of common pregnancy health issues that I really didn’t know much about.

The Baby Show ExCel London Review

Disclosure: We were invited on this day out for the purpose of this post however all opinions are my own.

Everything for the homebirth got delivered on Thursday and I have been holding my breath since that Baby didn’t make an early appearance.

Pregnancy – 33 Weeks Update

26 and a bit weeks

I have now been away from work for 2 weeks and feel like I haven’t had a moment to relax – That will come though, but for now I am on a mission!

I really don’t think women ‘nest’ as such in pregnancy, I think they just realise how little time they will have after the Baby comes and how many things they had been putting off doing that will get put off even longer if they don’t do them now, right now, in the last few months/weeks of pregnancy.
