My pregnancy week 28

28 weeks
so I am officially 28 weeks today but feeling more like 38. My baby bump quite big I think with my other three i was more all the way round instead of straight out like it is this time which made me have my suspicions that bump was a boy this time. Everything about this pregnancy has been different to when I was pregnant with my three daughters. I will fill you all in on my pregnancy so far in another posts.

what has 28 weeks brought for me? swollen ankles, feeling like I could wet myself at any given moment, waddling instead of walking, not sleeping very well as cant get comfy at all, I do have a maternity pillow which helps a bit but not miraculously.  Ive also had really bad aching  legs the last week or so my left leg a lot more than my right and more so at night so that isn't helping.  I'm seeing the midwife Monday for my 28 week check so will speak to her about it.  The time has gone so quick since my last midwife appointment which I think was 16 weeks (would have to check my notes to be sure.) It felt at the time like my next appointment was so far away.  I'm wondering if she will weigh me as i haven't been weighed since my booking in and my scales aren't working, I am sure I have  put on at least a stone.

Although this is not my first pregnancy I still like reading about mine and bumps progress week by week although not found a great deal of information about week 28. Emmas diary seems to have the most. which you can read here

Would be great to hear how some of you were feeling at 28 weeks and any tips for a better nights sleep would be fab.


  1. Just an update as I saw the midwife this morning and she said everything is fine. she suggested I buy a support belt to help with pain.

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 …
