Yesterday was a difficult day. My emotions, my hormones were ALL over the place. Day plans were changed, my bank account is scarily low (too much Christmas shopping! Oops), the place I went for lunch ran out of the thing I went in there for and it was the due date of our little bundle of joy. I felt disappointed, fed up and exhausted. I nearly cried a few times.
I took to Pinterest and pinned several pretty, pastel, festive pins to cheer me up. After a handful of chocolate, a few cups of raspberry leaf tea and a couple of acu-pressure points (yes I'm trying it all!) I took myself to bed.
It was one of those nights where I woke up in a hot sweat (LITERALLY!) and hours later waking up again in floods of tears. Yes, I managed to dream of horrible things and wake myself up from real tears.
Well, that's a first. So today I am focusing on writing more blog posts, pinning more inspiring pictures, drinking more cups of raspberry leaf tea, cleaning, sewing and eating more chocolate.
All in hope that the positivity will come back and baby will surprise me with her much awaited arrival.

* Also, how is it 10 days until Christmas? *


  1. Aaaah, I understand completely where you're coming from. I'm currently 8 days overdue and seem to be spending all my days feeling utterly fed up and snapping at everyone around me. I'm just trying to spend my days relaxing as much as possible, so I'm definitely with you on the blogging with chocolate, I'm adding in lots of baths and cleaning too!

  2. Hang on there, honey :) It's normal. I've been trough this may times, not only when I was expecting my sweet Katy. Read a nice book, listen to nice, relaxing (but not depressing music), have a cup of mint tea.... Those helped me a lot :) Hugs!

  3. Yes I sympathise with how you are feeling. Especially when people kept asking me, "Anything yet?" I know they meant well but it was frustrating and exhausting just waiting and wondering.
    Try and enjoy this time, just the two of you, she will be here before you know it and life will never be the same! But in the most wonderful and marvellous way.

  4. Aww you poor thing, I hope you are feeling a little better, I imagine being overdue is very frustrating. Also, you just totally freaked me out with the ten days until Christmas thing - how has that happened? I need to finish my Christmas shopping asap haha xx

  5. Wow, I'm so sorry! That's so rough. I wish you the best. In times that I feel completely down I like to come back to my blog as well. It's a place to completely share all my thoughts and feelings. She will be here soon - hang in there!

  6. And now you have a beautiful bundle of joy :-)
