Oscar's parents' evening

One night last week, Simon and I went to Oscar’s parents’ evening at school. We’d been to one just after he started, but it mainly focused on how well he was settling in, so I was looking forward to hearing how he was getting on. As soon as we sat…

The twins’ two year review

Last week the twins had their two year development review. The twins played with various toys whilst I chatted to the health visitor and answered various questions about each of them. I was a little worried about Henry’s speech. I know I shouldn’t compare them, but when you have twins it’s…

A magical Mother’s Day weekend

I’ve had the most lovely weekend and the fact that it was Mother’s Day yesterday was like the cherry on top. All of the kids have been lovely this weekend and we’ve had a great time together, just doing simple things. I don’t work on a Friday, so it always…

The first time I called 999 (and hopefully …

Tonight I experienced the scariest couple of minutes of my life. Henry choked, not just your usual gaging, before it appears again, but properly choked to the point of almost turning blue.

I wanted to ensure I capture all the details of the birth of our twins as it was a lovely experience. I was induced on the Friday, although when I rang at 7.30am to see what time to come in and they told me they’d ring me back at lunchtime…

35 weeks and struggling with the flu

It’s been far too long since I last posted, I’m now 35 weeks. I think the main reason for lack of posts is that it has been a pretty straightforward pregnancy so far, no major aches, pains or complications. I’ve been having four weekly scans and everything is going well…

Feeling normal

I’m now 17 weeks and have started to feel normal again – hurrah!! Not feeling any definite movements yet, so hoping everything is okay. I’m sure it is, but I’m just a natural worrier! Watched the One Born Every Minute: Twins and Triplets episode this week and have to say…

The hospital scan and telling work

I decide to wait to tell work until the ‘official’ 12 week hospital scan, which we had yesterday. We seemed to be at the hospital ages! Upon entering the room we tell the sonographer that we already know it’s twins, he then goes on to say that we’ll only be…
