Its a baby...........

So yesterday i had my scan at 19 weeks 3 days :) Seriously been counting down to the day when i egt to find out what im having and just to make sure my bubba is healthy. And im am very pleased to say im am expecting a beautiful healthy baby girl!!!!! This smile has not left my face since i found out i cant believe i have a baby girl on the way im soooo happy :) The scan was so clear we got to see everything and it was amazing.....she was being a little shy though she kept putting her hands in front of her face but then she moved them and we saw her little nose and then she yawned it was so weird but so cute......we evan saw her give us a little wave!! But she is perfectly healthy and growing the way she should be, all her measurements are how they are meant to be for how far gone i am and she is doing really well so im a very happy and proud mummy to my beautiful little princess :) She has been moving a lot more today and it feels nice noing that my daughter is okaay and moving around like a ninja lol :) We already had names so we could call it by the name straight away and as its a girl we will be calling her Taylor-Lilly Scarlett Wood.....i adore that name and so does my boyfriend and we are just so happy that we have a little girl on the way. I do feel a bit sorry for my boyfriend because he has to put up with 3 girls in his life now as he has me, his daughter and our little one growing away inside me but hes happy whatever. We haven't told anyone yet we are waiting until Christmas day to announce it to everyone....its gonna be like an Christmas surprise to them all which i hope they will all love!!! Straight after the scan yesterday we done a little bit of baby shopping as my nanny was kind enough to give us £200 to go to the baby so we ended up ordering her crib and mattress, and then bought some clothes and other little bits for her like towels, dummies, blankets, a tummy time mat and a few other little bits......then we got a couple more bits today because i couldn't resist lol :) And then on Friday i will get getting a lot more things because i get money money money!! I don't evan care about spending money on my self now it all goes to my little princess and that's probably how its gonna be for the next god nos how many years lol :) So thats all the news so far and i will keep you updated........here is the scan picture it is so clear this time you can see her spine and body and face so well :)

And here are a few of the clothes we have bought her there is so much more though just its all packed away in her drawers now :)

Love my little princess so much....cant wait to meet her :)

Tiny movements!

Well today i am 19 weeks pregnant and so far i am loving it....yeah i had some horrible symptoms at first but now its the most amazing thing in the world to me and i couldn't be happier. One thing that is really making me love pregnancy is feeling my baby move.....i have been feeling it move for quite a while but now im starting to get actual kicks! They are not strong enough for anyone else to feel but they are getting stronger so it wont be long till i start seeing my belly move lol :) But i tell you what feeling them first little kicks is the best feeling in the world and it just makes my heart melt to no that i have my son or daughter growing inside me as we speak, its so weird but amazing!! Another exciting thing....Monday i will be finding out whether i have a son or daughter on the way and i seriously cannot wait.....its all i ever talk about and i cant stop thinking about it. I think im having a girl and so does everyone else so if i find out its a boy i will be totally shocked....but i don't care what it is as long as its healthy and loves its mummy and daddy i don't care!! I have found a crib that i want so i will be buying that next week so i can buy all the bedding with it as well....that is the thing that's gonna make it all real because i will have it set up in my room and just imagining my little baby is going to be in there in may doesn't really seem that long away when i think about it....i mean nest Friday i am going to be  20 weeks so i am like nearly half way through my pregnancy already, it feels like it has gone sooooo quick yet slow at the same time. Think i might have to buy some either boys or girls clothes next week just to brighten up munchkins drawers as they are looking a little to neutral at the minute so i no that i will probably go a little crazy with the baby clothes shopping but im aloud to...im its mummy so im meant to spoil my bubba haha :) Here is a picture of my bump that i just took its getting so big now its actually starting to get in the way of doing certain things lol :)

Love my little munchkin, my boyfriend and my step daughter so much....perfect little family that i wouldn't change for the world!!! Muuuaaahhh......(xx) <3 xxxxxxx

16 week checkup!

Well this a little late since my 16 week midwife checkup was on 27th November but my internet has been down so haven't had a chance to write on here. So i am now 17 weeks 3 days and omg its so weird feels like this pregnancy has gone really fast but slow at the same time. But its weird to think that i am nearly half way through.
So the midwife appointment went really well....everything is perfectly fine and im measuring how i should be so that's good :) And best part about the appointment was hearing my bubba's heartbeat....omg it was so beautiful to hear. It took her a while to find it so i did panic a little but she finally found it and my face literally lit up it was so nice to hear my baby is okaay and has a good strong heartbeat. The fetal heart rate was 154 so that's kind of another sign that i may be expecting a little girl....at the minute everything is pointing to a girl so i will be in total shock if its boy but i will be over the moon with whatever :) Now i have to wait until December 17th to find out whether its pink or blue i will be buying i seriously cannot wait!!!! :O
Another exciting thing that's been happening is for the past couple of weeks since i was about 15 weeks i have been feeling movement, not enough to see from the outside or for anyone else to feel but i have been feeling slight little flutters and for the past 4 5 days i have been feeling super strong movements like little kicks....its crazy actually feeling it now but its such a nice feeling because its like a reassurance for me and its like munchkin is saying 'mummy im awake and im okaay' just makes me smile every time i feel it move and im already such a proud mummy :) My boyfriend is finding everything really exciting as well and he loves all the baby talk and baby shopping and hes planning out stuff we are going to do as a family in the future, including his nearly 2 year old daughter as well, and he is just such an amazing person, couldn't ask for a better father to my child and im so happy :) His daughter is such a little angel as well, she no's that i have a baby in my belly and she always says ya ya (that's nickname kids call me) baby belly its so cute....and when we show her the scan picture she says ya ya baby and then gives it a kiss....seriously super cute :) And plus side as well morning sickness has gone....and everything has basically gone doesn't evan feel like im pregnant some times until i feel a little nudge then i realize i  really am growing a baby inside me lol :) Here are some pics of my bump as its getting quite big now.....

 This is my bump at 15 weeks :)
And this is my bump at 16 weeks 4 days....can defoo see that im pregnant now lol :) xxx

Thursday, 8 November 2012


Well last night we had a little bit of a scare, for the past couple of days i have been getting shooting sharp pains on the right side of my lower abdomen and cramps, for the past 24 hours they started to get a little painful so i decided to go up to a&e, i would rather waste their time and everything is fine then not bother and find out something is wrong at the 20 week scan. My boyfriend took me up there at around 9.40 last night. We were up there for nearly 5 hours and omg it was like the longest, most tiring and boring 5 hours of my life but i needed to make sure my baby was okaay. Turns out everything is perfectly fine and i am just a typical worrying mother lol :) I had to do a urine sample, blood tests and have an ultrasound. They did want to to an internal examination but i chose not to because i didnt feel comfortable with someone sticking something up me :/ But urine sample came back fine, blood tests all come back fine and the baby looked perfectly healthy on the scan. It was wide awake and it was waving its hand around near its face, its like it was waving to us saying 'Look mummy and daddy im fine, stop worrying' so im super happy now that i no my bubba is all healthy and growing like it should be. I just wanted to cry when i saw its little heartbeat, it just made my heart melt noing that was my little bubba there and everything was fine. I no i worry to much but after my miscarriage last year its understandable why i would worry about it. I did get a scan picture but it wasn't very clear and to be honest you cant actually see the baby on it unless you look at it super carefully. But whatever now i no my baby is okaay i can stop worrying and carry on growing my little munchkin and keeping it safe and healthy. Seriously cant wait until December 17th though, i just wanna no if im going to have a son or daughter so bad and then i can start my baby shopping!!! Hehe :)

12 week scan!

So today was  my 12 week scan......feels like the past 3 weeks have gone so quickly. I was up at 6.00 this morning, mainly due to morning sickness, but i think maybe because i was a little excited as well. Today i had my boyfriend Troy, my mum and my 13 year old brother Jay come to the scan with me. It was amazing seeing how big my bubba had gotten since my last scan which was at 9 weeks. The only thing is i had a little bit of a stubborn bubba today, it didn't want to move to let us see everything, it wanted to sleep instead the little monkey lol :) It took a while to finally wake up and let us get the most decent picture we could, it wriggled a little when it woke up which was cute but it looked like it went straight back to sleep again. My due date had changed slightly, i found out that im now due May 10th 2013 so not much difference really. But everything was perfectly fine with me and the baby, it was measuring 6cm which is average measurement for 12 weeks so its a good size and the amniotic fluid around the head is perfectly normal, everything is growing how is should be so im happy. As long as i no my bubba is okaay and healthy i feel more at ease. I have my next scan on 17th December which is when i will be finding out whether im having my baby girl Taylor Lilly Wood or my baby boy Kaiden Lee Logan Wood, i seriously cannot wait so then i can start baby shopping for the sex instead of getting neutral clothes all the time. So all in all a very happy day for me and im very proud mummy who loves her little munchkin more than anything in the world!!!!

Not that much of a clear picture but i can still see the main parts of my bubba that i need to, just obviously being very stubborn like its mummy today lol :) <3 xxx

Mummys getting bigger :)

Well i am now officially 12 weeks pregnant today and i am feeling some what better but still got a few of my symptoms like morning sickness every single morning as soon as i wake up, constant headaches and dizziness, feeling like someone is grabbing my belly and stretching it and just feeling uncomfortable a lot of the time. But on the plus side im not feeling so tired anymore and i feel like i have a bit more energy back in me now which is super awesome!! But one thing i have noticed more than anything is my bump it has got so much bigger since my first scan which was only 3 weeks ago. Its amazing how much it is growing in so little time. Soon il be feeling my bubba kick, seriously cannot wait for that :) I have my scan on Monday and i am literally so excited i cant stop talking about, finally get to see my little munchkin again and hopefully it will be active for its mummy and daddy again as well as its nanny and uncle since my mum and younger brother is going to be coming along to see it. Ohhh and i have started my own pregnancy and baby scrapbook so i can keep all the amazing memories that me, my boyfriend, my bubba and my step daughter are going to have as one little happy family. Life is looking so good at the minute and things are starting to go to plan just hope noting messes any of this up for me and my family. Heres some updated pictures of my iccle bump!!!1 <3

Mummy and daddy's little munchkin growing away.....cant wait to meet you bubba!!!! We love you more than anything and nothing will change that <3 xxx

Monday, 8 October 2012


Omg i had my first scan today and it has to be the most amazing thing i have ever seen!!! I was so worried when i went in there because i thought that either nothing was gonna show up or they couldn't find a heartbeat but my little munchkin was perfect :) It was an active little thing wriggling its little arms and legs about it was soooooo cute :) The only thing is turns out im not as far along as i thought i was im only 9 weeks 2 days so i have to go back on the 29th of October for my 12 weeks scan.....im counting down the days till that now lol :) But everything is the way it should be and its growing very well and i have got a very healthy little bubba that im am over the moon with. Its so weird how this little person growing inside me that i have never met means the entire world to me....i dint think love like this was possible but i have undying love for my child and it is my everything! My boyfriend and my mum came to the scan with me and we all had the biggest smiles on our faces when we saw my little bubba's heartbeat.....i couldn't see it at first so i was a bit worried and then i saw it and i have never felt so happy before in my life :)
I also broke the news to my whole family today and surprisingly they were all happy for me and were supportive about it.....im so lucky to have a supportive family and friends behind me, bring on the 29th!!!!!!!!

My iccle munchkin....9 weeks 2 days.....very very proud mama :) <3 xoxoxo

Here comes the bump!

Omg im starting to get a little bump......im so happy!!!! My boyfriend pointed it out to me he said that i look like im getting bigger and obviously a boy saying that you kinda start thinking 'ohhh great im fat' and that was my first thought because sometimes i forget that im pregnant lol :) But then it just dawned on me that i have a little person growing in there very fast as well....i think i am around 11 weeks but i wont be 100% sure until next Monday when i have my dating scan. I literally cannot wait..i just want to see my little bubba and no everything is okaay. I have been having a lot of practice with kids though because my boyfriend has a little girl who is nearly 2 and then i have 2 little cousins...ones nearly 3 and the other is about 8 months so i have been looking after them all as much as i can for practice and experience lol :) I think i could be the best mum that i can obviously the things im not to confident with i will learn eventually.
As for symptoms i haven't been getting them to bad anymore, i still have morning sickness which is nearly every morning now. Ummmm i haven't been as tired so im starting to get my energy back now which is good because i hate having no energy, and i am still getting the cramps but they are not painful just your regular period cramps without the period lol :) But nothing i cant handle will all be worth it in the end. But there is one little concern i have which i will bring up to my midwife at 16 weeks, i have been getting really dizzy a lot lately so i think my iron levels may be low but i have heard its common in pregnancy but obviously i just want to make sure everything is okaay. And the last thing which is really bugging me is my appetite, i don't no whats going on with it like i hardly want anything that is put in front of me and it takes me ages to actually figure out what my body fancy's. The past week all i have wanted is ice lollies and choc ices....yeah weird i no but that's all i seem to fancy! And that's everything i haven't been getting anything else so obviously pointing to end of first trimester coming up which im happy about because that means im going to be a lot happier and have more energy in me :) So i think that's about it il just post a picture of my belly i took like last week so i was around 10 weeks i think.
Look at my cute iccle bump starting to come up hehe :) Cant wait till i can feel my little munchkin actually kicking gonna be so amazing and such a beautiful moment for me :)

So exicted!!!

Okaay so today i got my letter come through with my dating scan date on it........its on the 8th October at 11.20. I literally cannot wait im so excited its crazy!!! It sucks that i have to wait just over 2 weeks, but this is gonna be one of those situations where its going to go soooo slow because im like mega excited about it!!!!!
My symptoms haven't been to bad lately....apart from i have been sick a few mornings and been feeling really sick constantly. And i have been awfully tired as well, i don't think i have ever been so tired in my life lol :) But the one thing that is really bad at the minute is my mood swings and emotions. I have been getting stressy over every little things and it winds me up that i get so mad all the time. And then i cry at the most pathetic things and i never cry at anything its annoying!!! I just want this first trimester to be over so that i can get back to my bubbly energetic self again...thats if i actually do thought!!! But apart from that everything is going pretty well at the minute now just gotta wait for ages to see my little munchkin!!! <3 xxx

Midwife appointment :)

So i had my first midwife appointment Wednesday but i couldn't write on here until now because me, my bf and his daughter went away for a couple of nights, it was so nice just getting away and spending some time together. So the midwife appointment went really well, she was so lovely, i was so worried i was going to get some total bitch who was going to start judging me because im a pregnant teen but she was lovely and so caring so im glad shes going to be my midwife. She worked out that ruffly my due date would be April 14th, but obviously not gonna no when im due until i get my scan. But how she worked it out would mean i am about 8 - 9 weeks gone which is a little further than what i thought. I just want to get my first scan already so i can see exactly how far gone i am and when im due. I got all my notes and my big pregnancy information pack so i have been studying that since i got it lol :) There is a lot of things that i never new about pregnancy so the information pack is really handy to have to help me along the way. I don't no when my scan is yet i will be getting a letter through the post at some point next week which will tell me so i have a feeling it will be in the next  few weeks. I seriously cant wait for my scan just so i can actually see there is something in there because it doesn't seem real at the minute, i no i have had 3 positive pregnancy tests plus all the symptoms i should be having but i need to actually see that something is there, its weird to think i have a person growing inside me, and that little person is my son or daughter, its really amazing how it happens.
So my hormones have literally been going crazy, a lot of the time i am very moody and stressy and my poor bf gets it all taken out on him but he understands and just deals with it, i feel so bad about being a bitch to him but sometimes i cant help it because hes always the closest person to me to shout at lol :) But i love him to bits and we have such a good relationship so everything's good with us at the minute. Ummm other symptoms i have been getting is cramps but they haven't been to bad lately so they don't bother me to much anymore, i have been getting weird twinges in my stomach its like its trying to tell me that its there its so weird plus i have been getting random stitches and i can just be sitting still its so annoying!!! Luckily i haven't had morning sickness yet i just have some parts of the day where i feel sick, mostly first thing in the morning and some time around the afternoon. I have been going to the toilet a lot more than i usually would and i have a little bit of constipation but nothing to drastic (i no people probably don't want to no that but im not ashamed of sharing my symptoms because i no other mums to be are having the same symptoms they just dont want to share stuff like this!). I have noticed as well i have been getting a lot of saliva and its annoying me because i feel like my mouth is constantly watering. My boobs are super tender and are starting to hurt a lot more now, my bf mentioned to me a couple of days ago that they looked a bit bigger as well so i examined them and they are definatley growing and i am starting to see veins popping up on them, and i have noticed veins on my belly very faintly as well so that mean that my bump is gonna start to show within in the next few weeks hopefully :) One thing i am annoyed about is stretch marks on my hips, i didn't think you could get them this early but obviously you can or i just have a weird body lol :) But the main thing that is a big problem is fatigue i am like constantly tired and dont have the energy to do anything anymore its really annoying i just want my energy back. Im a night owl so my bed routine has always been go to bed early hours in the morning and wake up late afternoon but now i have been going to bed before midnight every night and waking up no later than 8.30 every morning. Mum keeps telling me that its my body preparing for the sleepless nights when munchkin is here. I cant wait to get this first trimester over and done with its going to be so much easier when i have some energy back in me.

Double checking!

Okaay so it got to today and i still didnt believe that i was pregnant so as its now Monday i thought 'ohh good idea to call up the doctors and get an appointment' turns out that my doctors surgery put you on an appointment with a midwife straight away and i have to wait until next Wednesday at 11.40 for my midwife appointment. So as you could probably tell i was quite pissed of as i wanted something sooner....like this week maybe??? But no i have to wait until next week so not happy about that!!!!! The main reason i wanted to go was to find out how far gone i was to see if the symptoms were right and that i was doing the right things for how far gone i am. So i decided to get a clear blue test...for two reason.....one because it would put my mind at ease as i didn't 100% believe that i was pregnant and two because it tells you how far gone you are. I done the test and well it came up positive so im defiantly 100% sure now lol :) and i found out that i am 4 - 5 weeks pregnant.....Eeeeeeek im like so happy!!!!!!! I cant wait to see the midwife next week and find out about everything coz obviously this is my first baby so i dont really no what i am doing.....im most looking forward to my first scan though just to see my little bundle of joy there, growing inside me.....omg im so excited!!!!!! So the day didnt start of to well but now happy girl :)

Hehe sooooo happy!!!!!!! <3 :)

I cant believe it!!!

Okaay so i was meant to write this last night but i didnt get a chance because i was having a movie night with my boyfriend :) But anyway Friday afternoon i got some very interesting news. Well first of all for the past week i have been suspecting im pregnant because i have had a few early signs and symptoms. The first main symptom was a missed period, i mean as soon  as you miss a period its kind of the first thing you suspect really and because my periods are very regular every month i thought it was a little weird. Then i started getting all this other weird stuff happening like frequent headaches, feeling more tired than usual, lower abdominal cramps (sort of like a period i suppose), my face has been breaking out (which never happens so im very annoyed!), my back has been feeling like someone has been constantly kicking me in it.....and just a few more things that wouldn't normally happen!
Me and my boyfriend went shopping Friday and he has evan noticed all these weird things happening to me so he mentioned about getting a pregnancy test....i thought why not?? Might as well do one just to be on the safe side. I didn't want to be spending stupid money on a little test that just tells me if im pregnant or not so i just got one from pound land, plus you get 2 tests in them ones. So yeah you may all be thinking oh they are cheap ones so they aint gonna work as well but they are just the same as any other test just a lot cheaper.....i don't see why i should waste £10 on a test when i can get 2 for £1 that work exactly the same!!! So when i got home from shopping i done a test, i no they say you should do a test in the morning because that's when you will get the most accurate result but you can test anytime of the day. So Friday afternoon i was sitting there in my bathroom waiting for them little lines to come up, it said on the box to wait 5 minutes to get a result, but after 2 minutes it was telling me negative so i thought ohh i cant be but then it got to 5 minutes and another line started appearing.....this little line was telling me that i was pregnant and i couldn't actually believe it!!! I ran downstairs to show my boyfriend to make sure i wasnt seeing things and ohhh yes it was telling me i was pregnant :) We didnt no what to say eachother and what to do.....i think every emotion was running through my body at that point i didnt no what to think. To be sure that i was i done another test yesterday morning as that is the best time to test and well that came up positive almost straight away. It so annoying thought because i cant book an appointment to see my gp until tomoz as its a weekend my doctors surgery is closed. So suppose its giving me a weekend to think about things and make sure that im sure of everything. But i no this is what i want and me and my boyfriend are going to bring this child into the world and give it the best life we can. I am going to try and be the most amazing mother ever and be there for my child whenever it needs or wants me :) Now that it is Sunday i have had time to think about things and now im actually rather excited to think that i have a little person growing inside me, a little person that is my son or daughter, its so weird but so wonderful :) Whether people read this or not does not bother me but i will be writing everything down on here as i think it would be a great memory for me in later year to come and just telling my story of a new precious life i am bringing into the world :)

A little bit about moii :)

I have seen so many people writing blogs about things that have happened in their life's that they want to remember, that they want to share with everyone, things that are so precious to them, things that mean everything to them that they don't ever want to loose the memory of. So i have decided to do exactly that as it basically seems just like an online journal that just everyone can see. But i feel like its time to start sharing my memories and writing them down so that i don't forget the beautiful things that happen in my life.
Basically il just tell you a little bit about myself so you can get a brief idea of my life. I wont tell you my name for safety reasons but i am 18 years old and i live in the UK. I currently don't have a job but i am looking, its so hard trying to find a job, especially when your someone like me who didn't do very well at school and haven't actually got any qualifications, but it hasn't stopped my determination to get a job and be successful in my life. I have had a couple of jobs in the past year but they haven't turned out so well and both ended up me getting the sack (food places just aint my thing lol). But even though im not working i am still trying to be a better person so i decided to take a course in fashion design and dressmaking, fashion has always been my thing and i would love to one day design my own things and have my own boutique....maybe even be as big as Gucci, Prada etc but we'll see about that one :) I live with my mum, dad and 13 year old brother, it is stressful around my house at times as obviously there is gonna be arguments but i love them all no matter what. My mum has been my rock through everything and i love her to bits, she is my idol. Im not as close to my dad but we still get along and have a laugh with each other and if i need his help he will be there for me :) Now my 13 year old brother obviously there is gonna be sibling arguments, you tell me siblings who don't argue??? But i love him to bits, i can trust him with anything and he always keeps my secrets to himself and he always no's how to make me laugh bless him :) The rest of my family like nanny's, grandad, aunties, uncles, cousins are not to bad either, not exactly the best family ever as there has been a lot of arguments recently but i tend to stay out of them as i would end up making them worse! But we lost my grandad last January so i think that's why there is so much tension because its still a shock to everyone, but im staying strong for him the last thing he would have wanted is everyone arguing. Ummm what else can i tell youu???? Ohhhh i have a boyfriend, hes 22, who i love very much, hes my everything hes always there for me when i need him and he just makes me smile constantly. I spend all the time with him and he just just amazing in every way......he has a daughter, shes like 1 n 1/2 , she is the cutest thing ever and i love her to bits and she gets along with me really well so thats a good thing :) Okaay everyone sorry for rambling on but i had a lot to say lol :) Ummm i hope you like it and are now interested in this blog.....trust me the next one which i will post later tonight will have some very interesting information on it. Let me no what you think peeps :) <3
