Sunday 25th April – Day 114
Mainly a quiet day at home. Finally got the girls hair trimmed and also took some pictures of some Unicornitos we were sent to review. Blog post will be live next week.
Monday 26th April – Day 115
Bee wasn’t too happy when I got her hair cut….but we still didn’t cut it as much as I would have liked. It was really long and a headache for me to look after as she can’t look after it herself yet…and I don’t want to be dealing with long hair when the baby is here. I would have liked her to cut it right to her shoulders….I did it once before and it suited her…but she refused. So we just had it trimmed and layered. Brushed it and tied it up and it looked nice. She was worried about what her friends would say at school today even though it still is pretty long!
Tuesday 27th April – Day 116
Absolutely nothing planned today so got on with some blog work. Decided to write about a pregnancy pillow I have – the bbhugme Pregnancy Pillow.
Wednesday 28th April – Day 117
After trying to decide whether to or not, I finally booked some time away for May half term. I had £160 credit in my AirBnB account and I just couldn’t see it go to waste. It had to be used by the end of December and I couldn’t see myself using it after the baby arrives. Decided to book South Wales….which is about 4.5hours. I had wanted to try Cornwall but thought 6 hours might be too much when I am 29 weeks pregnant. Slightly nervous about the virus situation but if it does all look too busy will just relax in the cottage as its in the countryside and a bit of peace and quiet will be welcome. The only picture I took today was of the ‘egg curry’ I made for a WIDN tag on instagram.
Thursday 29th April – Day 118
Finally had a dentist appointment for us all after nearly 2 years…we were due a check up just before the first lockdown but obviously that didn’t happen! Also went to Boots to pick up our order of a hair straightener. After the hair dresser straightened her hair, the eldest wanted one. I have got a cheap one for now as I have a feeling it won’t be used much.
Friday 30th April – Day 119
Had my 25 week appointment today. MW gave me a maternity form for hubby if he wants to take parental leave and checked baby’s heartbeat. First time I have heard the heartbeat and was a bit of a mission listening to it as baby was pretty active and not staying still. This MW was also 16 weeks pregnant so I asked her about the vaccine as thought I would rather get the opinion of someone who is pregnant rather than everyone pushing me to get it when they don’t have a baby possibly at risk. She said her consultant told her to get it after 20 weeks as that is when baby is fully formed but even she is in two minds…and that is a personal choice. She said that if I don’t take it then to just look after myself as much as I can and be careful.
I had ordered a travel system package for the baby which included a high chair and a by my side crib thing which wasn’t meant to arrive until the end of May. However it arrived today. I opened up everything to check it and then asked my nephew to take it all to my parents house as I have nowhere to store it. I also got my plant sorted as a tribute to Rosie. It is a Rosie Hebe plant with a stone remembering her.
Saturday 1st May – Day 120
Not a lot happening today – just Bee’s karate in the morning and then chilling in the afternoon. Had to fill up the car and spotted this Twix in the shop….had to give it a try. I quite like it.

The Unicornito does look very cute.
Bee’s hair looks lovely. Her hair still looks really long and I understand it can be a handful to look after.
I hope you have a lovely trip away.
It must be a tough choice about getting the vaccine with being pregnant. I would be reluctant to have it because for so long they have said it’s not for pregnant women. x

Yep it is still pretty long! Thats whats stopping me from having it..initially they were adamant we shouldn’t and now saying we should!
I’m not a fan of white chocolate, but I’ve not had a twix for years. Will be nice for you to get away. South Wales is lovely
I usually don’t eat a lot of white chocolate but this was quite nice!
The commemorative stone is really lovely. I understand Bee’s reluctance to have a more drastic hair cut, as I feel the same. 🙂
She does love long hair!
A break away sounds like a lovely idea before baby arrives. I don’t envy you having to decide re the vaccine #365
It is such a hard decision
The Unicornitos look like the kind of thing Sophie would like. Nice to have a holiday in South Wales to look forward to. How lovely to get a plant as a tribute to Rosie – I love the stone in the pot as well. Good luck with making a decision over whether or not to get the vaccine. #project365
Thank you, such a hard decision
Sounds like you’re getting organised for the baby with a lot of time to spare. I hope your eldest gets her monies worth out of the straighteners, I’m sure once she gets to grips using them she’ll not go without straight hair, who knows she might show an interest with Bee’s hair and then it won’t have to be cut again
She has already used them a couple of times so think she will use it regularly
Wales is so beautiful I am sure you will have a wonderful time away. As you say you can relax in the countryside. Glad the scan went well. The plant and memorial stone for Rosie are lovely. I finally got the boy’s hair cut this week and went way too short… oops.

Aww it will grow back quickly.
Those Unicornitos look quite sweet! Awww bet the girls loved having new toys. How exciting you have booked a trip away. Nice to have something to look forward to and very wise to use up your credit too. I need to use my straighteners more, I have GHD’s I love but am far too lazy most of the time haha. Make sure you buy some heat protection spray for hair before straightening.

Thank you, yes have got some heat protection spray
I can’t have Little E’s hair that long as I hate fighting with it in the mornings. Mine is bad enough. The tribute for Rosie is lovely. Glad you booked a week away it will be a nice break. I have to have the swine flu vaccine when I was pregnant. It really worried me at the time but my whole office came down with it the week after I had the vaccince. That Twix looks interesting #365

Having vaccines in pregnancy is such a worry.
I used to love sleeping with my pregnancy pillow – wish I still had it. The unicornito is cute, I bet the girls love it
The pillow certainly does help!
