The scariest packing that I have ever done – What to pack in your hospital bag

Bag

With 2 weeks to go before Liberty is due to arrive, I have finally packed my hospital bag! (This meaning I have put things in the bag as I had already prepared it weeks ago #superorganised😊). I had read so many different sites, blogs and forums about what to pack and decided I would use a mixture of Baby Centre’s, Milli’s (from the Positive Birth Book) and the one I was provided from the Hospital.

How am I going to get Liberty out? Planning for Labour using The Positive Birth Book by Milli Hill – PART 1

With all the drama planning for the what ifs around my mental health when Liberty arrives  and whether my meds would cause issues when it came to breastfeeding, I haven’t actually  been asked what kind of birth I would like. Before I was pregnant I would joke saying that I was too posh to push and have my labour booked in and plan my labour around my life. I would want the baby to come ‘out of the sunroof’ if you know what I mean as no way I would want to it to come out of my V. The thought terrified me! So it was time to ask myself what kind of birth I actually wanted.

It is almost bittersweet! You get a reason to go on holiday however it will never be the same again! As candlelit dinners and ‘do not disturb’ turns into Bottle feed and Bedtime stories at 7pm.

Don’t lower yourself to respond! My first experience with Twitter Trolls!

As a hopeless romantic, I have been looking forward to the royal wedding for weeks! One of the main attractions for me like any fashion thinking female was seeing the dress! The dress is should a big deal for a wedding (well I think it is anyway) and I couldn’t wait to see what Meghan had chosen! She has all the world designers to choose from so who was it going to be….

Seeing a quick glance of the dress in the car on the way to the ceremony, I saw the top part which look like a thick boat necked dress with no detail but hoped that there was more to the dress when we see her get out of the car!
