Some of you may know if you have read my blog posts about my pregnancy that I have been suffering a lot of pain and when I discussed this with the midwife at my last appointment although she didn't seem really interested and had the kind of just one of those things you have to put up with attitude she did suggest that I could buy a bump support.

I had a look on line at some and finally decided to buy a blooming marvelous maternity support belt from Mothercare.  I was a bit skeptical as it was the cheapest one that I had found at just £12,  however it did have good reviews and i couldn't afford to buy a more expensive one.  It comes in two colours either black or white and three different sizes which are small, medium and large.

I finally went to mothercare yesterday to purchase one and i have to say I am so glad i did and was definitely £12 well spent.  I put it on as soon as i got home and haven't wanted to take it off i think i will have to try and get another one so i can wear one wash one.  The best way to describe it is that its like a huge weight has been lifted, I cant believe how much lighter my bump feels it is so comfortable and I have to confess I did sleep in it last night.  Obviously i have still had a bit of discomfort but a lot less than usual and find walking a whole lot easier. 

I was a size 10-12 before becoming pregnant but I decided to buy the size medium which it says is suitable for a size 12-14 which is a great fit and will also stretch to fit my bump as it grows, you can also wear them a lot earlier on in pregnancy than i have at almost 30 weeks and it will grow with your bump so to speak.  I would highly recommend this as a pregnancy must have especially if you are suffering from spd or your bump is really weighing you down.

You can view it via this link,default,pd.html which will take you to the Mothercare website and i will try to upload my own photos later as I cant seem to get it to work now.



  1. I would love to be able to get the new book by tom and giovanna fletcher with this :)

Speech Delay

So bump is now 4 and he is having problems with his speech I'm at the point now where I'm thinking did I do something wrong? will he ever talk? and I just don't know the answers which is frustrating me so I can only imagine how frustrating it is for him.

His speech started off fine the usual mama, dad, dog etc then it just seemed to stop and no more progress was made and I was too worried at first because my eldest daughter who's almost 20 now didn't really say all that much until she started nursery.

By the time it came to his 2 year review I was slightly concerned and spoke with the health visitor about it and was referred to speech therapy, we waited a while for that and they only saw him once where the speech therapist sat and played with him and gave me things to do at home with him.

We did attempt for him to start nursery last April but it didn't go too well and he didn't go anymore, he is quite a handful and they wouldn't let him stay the whole s…

potty training a 4 year old

So as I said in my previous post about speech delay bump is now 4 and still not potty trained, I started off potty training at 2 and its just been a struggle ever since, I feel like I've hit a brick wall and I just don't know what to do anymore.

he wont sit on the potty or the toilet, have tried everything to encourage him, books, dvds haven't tried a reward chart because he would have no interest in that.  Took his nappy away but he will just wet or pooh himself and not care.

He wears a nappy to nursery and he is due to start reception in September, what am I going to do send him to school in a nappy? I cant do that, I'm hoping and praying he's just going to decide to do it on his own but he is quite happy still wearing a nappy with no prompt to change him if he's done a pooh.

I'm at a loss and feel like a total failure, I've potty trained his sisters perfectly fine so why cant I do it?

please feel free to leave me a comment, email or tweet me i'd …
