Holidaying when pregnant – did you/would you?

When Boy was a not-very-small almost-8mth bump inside me, I finally started my maternity leave and we promptly took off on holiday. We already had a 3 yr old, funds were tight and the British summer was actually glorious (no, really, it was…) so we decided that holidaying when pregnant definitely meant the camping thing. I’ll admit I did some fast-talking to convince Mr LittleStuff that I could TOTALLY handle camping with...

The New Baby Checklist – what’s on yours?

It wasn’t that long ago that I vividly remember calling my big sister in a panic “Quick! Tell me! How many crib sheets do I need?” I was 8mths pregnant, and sorting through my New Baby Checklist – I had torn it out of a magazine, and was working my way through it with a fine toothcomb.

How does pregnancy affect your vision?

My pregnancy days are sadly a way behind me now – the last time I grew a small human bean was over 8 years ago now (how the heck can that be?). But you never forget how, do you? I bloody LOVED being pregnant. Even with all the awkward, uncomfortable downsides, I never ever grew tired of it, or was ready for it to end. But I do recall pregnancy as the time my body started falling apart on me. My hair got darker (and I loved being...
