ITS MY DUE DATE! 🤰🏻I love this collage of my girl cooking away over the months 😍
I’ve woken up the happiest mamma ever because even through the copious toilet trips last night, I’ve had a good 8/9 hours sleep whereas I normally get around 3 🤦🏽‍♀️. So after my sweep yesterday I was mildly cramping throughout the day, then when I went to bed it REALLY kicked up a notch but it didn’t seem like a contraction.. like an unbelievably intense cramp that just wouldn’t go? I timed one and it was six and a half minutes long, I wasn’t really getting any form of pain relief between them either it was hard to even time it because it just felt like a constant intense cramp, my whole stomach was rock solid too similar to a Braxton Hicks but with a lot of pain. I paced around for a little while and tried to find a more comfortable position but nothing was working 😫 it lasted around an hour and a half and then eventually tapered off and I got off to sleep.. nothing to report today so far either 🤷🏽‍♀️ I was going to call the hospital and ask their advice but I just felt as though it wasn’t the start of labour at all.. no idea what it was but I seriously hope that’s not how my labour goes 😂 I can cope with the pain as long as I have a break in between! Can anyone shed any light for me as to what it may have been? I thought contractions lasted around 30 seconds to 2 minutes and you felt a gradual build up, peak and then let down but do some people experience super long contractions? My other thought is that it could be prodromal/ ‘false’ labour.. either way I’m heading out for a nice long walk to see if this little one can be coaxed into making an appearance soon 😆

When I was young I always dreamed about becoming a superhero. When I got older, I realized there are so many ways to become just that! You can be the superhero in your children's lives! 😍

If the patient wants a den building, its a den building morning we are having!
Grace has caught Harry's sickness bug so spent the evening hurling, so we are having a day of snuggles, watching movies and wearing pajamas!!
Although this afternoon I won't be able to help myself but run around with some disinfectant in the hope of getting rid of some germs! .

How are you 5 months already my gorgeous boy? I've never known a happier baby- you will literally smile at anyone and people can't help but smile back at you! I can't wait to see what the next months bring 💙

How is this one going to be 7 next week and how have I been a mother for nearly 7 years (yet know nothing)? I'm keeping it all crossed that I have remembered everything for her party this weekend and that she has an amazing time. She is so fragile, so beautiful and so crazy. 
Look out for an extended soppy comment next week on her actual birthday, but for now I better get up and get her ready for school.

A fun thing about having school aged kids is when they come home and want to teach us what they learned.

A fun thing about having school aged kids is when they come home and want to teach us what they learned. "How was your day? Tell me about it?" Amazes me every time how those two simple questions can lead to some elaborate storytelling. Another wonderful delight, my 7th grader is reading #neilgaiman books in her English class 🥰 #littlehumans #bigfamliving #schoolyears #shadowsandreflections

Today we had an outside storytime at the library. The kids had a great time. It's so cute to watch them stick together in a group of kids. .
Spending time outside reading today reminded me how important it is to spend time outside. What are your favorite things to do outside? #letsplayoutside #siblings #familymoments

How can two humans come from the same parents yet be completely opposite?
•
I’ve been asking myself this question for the past few days because it’s been a bit on the rough side with unacceptable actions and discipline.  The only answer I can land on is “it’s supposed to be that way”.
•
If they were the same,  parenting could probably be a lot less stressful because you know what works for one will work for the other, you wouldn’t have to guess how the second child is going to react, they’d both like the same things etc... •
But they are not 🤷‍♀️...
•
Figuring out what works for both kids individually, who like this, who likes that can be tiring at times but I will say,  I would not have it any other way.
•
I want my boys to know individuality is their greatest gift.  They each have their own strengths and weaknesses and those things make them who they are.  My boys will know it’s ok to be unapologetically themselves, they will be fierce in life in their own ways and they will know they are our greatest accomplishment (even on the bad days).
•
Parents I have one word for you.... GRACE

Give yourself some because the parenting thing is hard $hit!

Picture this... you’re just a normal Midwest girl (living in a lonely world hahah name that song)🎤🎤
.
who got sick and tired of hearing herself complain about all the things she didn’t have.
.
She wants bikini confidence.👙
She wants abs.
She needs more energy.
She needs to do something that’s exciting.
She’s bored.
She’s broke.
What’s she good at? Nothing.
She doesn’t have a thing. Everyone else has a thing. 💩 .
What if you got out of your own way because lessss be real... you’re the one holding yourself back from getting allllll da thangs!
.
Girl, you are meant for so much more. There’s no reason for you not to be 100% happy with what’s in front of you. If you don’t like it, change it. It’s literally that easy if you allow it to be. ✨
.
You’ll be faced with your breaking point. That little nudge you feel in your belly is real. Listen to it. It’s telling you what’s next.

I remember when our first child was born. It was something I have never felt before, and something I will never forget. The most overwhelming and surrealistic feeling of joy, happiness, stress, uncomfortable and so much more. 
Would I recommend it somebody else? ABSOLUTELY! It really changed my life, and I believe I am not alone when saying that. 😍

How was your experience with your firstborn? We would love to hear from you!

The boys are on the move..
Traveling for next few days followed by a little break before heading back to routine. 
Traveling with kids is stressful. But it is also an opportunity for kids to experience and learn about different people, places and things. Let’s make some fun times.

I had my first experience of a stretch and sweep today! 🙈 My midwife said generally it’s not proven to be effective in first time mammas to have one until 41 weeks but she was happy to give it a go and see if we could get things moving. I was so apprehensive beforehand, everyone’s anatomy and pain threshold is entirely different.. but for me (this time) it was NOTHING compared to having a coil fitted which the most excruciating and traumatic experience of my life seriously 😷 The coil clearly didn’t last long either, I was not a fan 👀 - serves me right for not asking a friend or family member to accompany me though 😂 the sweep was uncomfortable and it did make me feel very crampy but it honestly wasn’t as bad as I anticipated!
-
So a stretch and sweep is essentially an internal exam where your midwife will feel for your cervix, and if possible they perform circular ‘sweeping’ motions to try and separate or loosen the membranes from the amniotic sac. The idea behind it is that by doing this, a sweep will initiate the release of prostaglandin hormones which are required to soften and prepare the cervix for childbirth, it can sometimes even bring on labour!
-
My MW told me that I’m around 1cm dilated and my membranes felt very tight.. nothing to write home about there really, BUT she said she could feel baby’s head and that I seemed to tolerate it very well as it was a hard sweep due to my cervix still being very posterior which bodes well for labour! 😆 -
If I could give one piece of advice to mums who have never had a sweep it would be to relax your body, focus on your breathing. The first thing we do when we anticipate pain is freeze, the more relaxed you are the more you will tolerate the pain and hopefully the better results you will get! Deep long breaths, pay attention to your body and actively try to relax it, focus on the benefits of why you’re having it in the first place 💆🏽‍♀️ I’d love to hear of other people’s experiences and if they were different to mine! I have my second booked in for Saturday morning so I’m hoping for a little more progress by then🤞

What does

What does "serendipity" mean to you? I love the word, it's just fun to say, but I like to think of it as a coincidence with something a little bit magical about it. I've been thinking about serendipity a lot lately, partly because of this little lady's mama. At a time when I was desperately needing help, @pawparazzi_s quite serendipitously appeared in my life, like a magical fairy who knew exactly what to do. Crystal is my right-hand-lady these days, my gal Friday, the cream in my coffee. So if you've noticed something a little extra magical about Beya Made lately...now you know why!

The reason I’ve been forced to evolve and grow. These two crumb snatchers have truly made this life worth living during the good, the bad and the ugly. I constantly remind myself it’s truly a blessing to be their mother. 💕

First time mums: did it or did it not throw you off (along with the other wonders of parenthood) when your baby got their first cold? I was clueless. And even on the couple of occasions he’s had a cold since - it’s been a nightmare you just wanna say here’s a tissue hun, blow your nose! Sorry but Arlo’s nose bunged up with all that snot, there are only so many times I can steam up my bathroom in hope his nose runs. Lots of you on my stories recommended different nasal aspirators, but no one mentioned this- @nosiboo_babycare electric nasal aspirator and I was so surprised with how well it worked! It’s really easy to use and relieves blocked noses straight away. Shop in three different colours at en.nosiboo.eu #AD #nosiboo #nosiboobabycare

Did you guys pre order any of @mil_co16 amazing new shoes? Make sure you check them out and use code “milah10” 😍. How amazing is this outfit by the very clever @twinklestardesigns, she was lovely enough to send some smaller shorts but this shot is just too cute not to share 😊

#Repost @leherindia • • • • • "What’s safety for you in a red-light area?" "There is no safety whatsoever. I feel safe there only when I am with my mother." "What makes you feel unsafe at your home (brothel) in red-light areas?" "Anyone can barge in anytime. There are four beds inside and we don’t know the customers who come in. Nasha karney waley rehtey hain. Daar lagta hai koi hum ko utha kar ley jayega." "What scares you the most there?" "Our bathrooms have no doors there is just a curtain. Also, anyone can walk in when and where we are asleep. In our gali the “current electric meter” is open. I fear we might get electric shock." "How unsafe are women and girls there?" "Women stand decked-up by the roadside. Men ogle at them and pass lewd remarks which the women hate. Girls here do not have any freedom. They are inappropriately touched a sort of ‘bad touch’. Men talk to them in abusive language." "So, there is nothing like safety for girls at all? No. There is no safety. Most girls are scared of their papas (pimps)." "What do papas do to kids?" "Papa log nashey ki cheez mangwatey hain." "Where do you feel safe then?" "In Prerana. There are dadas (brothers) and tais/didis (sisters). Nobody can come inside Prerana’s centre without permission. I feel safe here than in the brothel where my mother has to stay." #littlehumans #LittleHumansofFalkland Saket (name changed) joined Prerana when he was 10. His mother was brought from West Bengal to Mumbai by one of her acquaintances. Her poor financial conditions and her daughter’s deteriorating health was yet another factor that forced Saket’s mother to migrate to the city, and was forced into the sex trade.Seeing the condition of his mother, Saket dreams to join the Indian Army. He aspires to serve the country and inspire the youth in the red-light areas to pull their mothers out of the horror of the sex trade. Drawing, cricket and football are this young boy’s talents.

This morning is requiring A LOT of coffee. A 5am wake up by the 3 year old who had to keep coming and informing us of EVERY little thing going on in his room (very politely I have to say). He then went on to start banging about and woke his sister at 6. I am SO BLOODY GRUMPY, what the opposite of having the patience of a saint? The off switch seems to be missing from my Wednesday... #canistartagain #notthepatienceofasaint #biscuitbribery #justalittlesitdown .
