Up up and not quite away

Well HAI!

Just took a notion to pop in here.  Such a busy time just now and I'm struggling with the work/life balance as I'm really enjoying my work but at the moment I'm working 4 days a week - which doesn't give me as much time as I would like with little miss.

I've had a few moments recently when I've picked her up from the in-laws or they have dropped her off and she just wants to cuddle them. I can't put into words how hard I find that. Throw preggo hormones into the mix and I'm just about at breaking point. I actually have SO much to say about this topic, and how the in laws are with her but I'm trying to get a handle on my serious frustrations and issues with the way they are, that launching into a mega moan is not going to help.

Let's talk about how much I weigh! I braved the scales the other week and I've pretty much put on close to stone. Let's call it a stone in 4 months. I think this is kind of on a par with last time. So that is kind of okay I suppose. Thing is I was thinner before I was pregnant last time.

In total, from the day I found out I was pregnant to the day before I gave birth I had gained around 4 stone. Eeek! Admittedly 2 stone of that was gone within 2 weeks of giving birth, but that's still quite a lot, I think we can all agree. I need to not let things get quite so out of hand this time.

So what I'm saying is, I'm fatter but sort of feeling okay with it. And here are some recent pics. I'd like to point out I don't always dress my child in pink!
