#BLikesRaisinsAndIUsuallyGiveThemToHerForASnackOnceADay

I think she is starting to get bored of them, but then she keeps eating them… I’ve also started to eat them #FunFact.

#AsSoonAsSheGetsTheBowlSheLikesToEmptyThemOut

And by that I mean hold onto the bowl with one hand and flick it up, so they all go everywhere. Or just empty them out…

#AsAResultTheyGoEverywhereAndSheIsOftenFindingThemThroughoutTheDay

I saw her put something in her mouth the other day, so I yelled at her to spit it out (she was by where my Nan sits and sometimes drops tablets). She started to cry and Tiago said he had put a raisin on the table there… Sorry B!

#IGuessTheyAreTrickyToKeepHoldOfAndTheOtherDayILaughedAsSheLookedDownHerSleeveForOneSheHadDropped

I had to help her get it out in the end…

#TiagoAndIJustCelebratedOurThreeYearWeddingAnniversaryButWeDidNotDoMuchExceptOrderOurFavouriteIndianFood

I say celebrated. I saw it on my calendar in the afternoon… It seemed like a good excuse for Indian food.

#WeHaveBeenSortingOutOurPaperworkToGetOurMarriageRegisteredInPortugalAndForBToGetHerPortugueseCitizenship

We did try to register our marriage just after we got married and went to Portugal, but they said we had to get it translated so it was probably easier to get it done at home. The embassies are so useless in the UK. Tiago has been emailing and calling over the years, but we’ve not got anywhere. They said I needed to get a birth certificate that had been issued in the last 6 months, but our friend who is sorting it out for us in Portugal now said we needed to get the documents Apostille stamped. We will now just get them translated there, as we might be waiting for (more) years if we try to get things done here now with Covid.

#AsWeHaveBeenMarriedForThreeYearsICanAlsoStartApplyingForCitizenshipWhichIsQuiteExciting

Hurrah, we are going to get the ball rolling soon. It’s funny that Tiago and B both have the new passports that don’t have European Union stamped on them, whereas mine does but I am not an EU citizen, whereas Tiago is and B will soon be. B has more claim to citizenship than me, and I think hers will be processed fast.

#IAmSoStressedThatOurTripWillNotGoAhead

Please please please let it happen.

#WeHaveOurTestsTomorrowMorningButYesterdayMyNanHadAPlumberRoundForTwoHoursAsWellAsSomeoneToLookAtTheRoof

Small things that have been wrong with the house since we moved in obviously needed to be looked at this week… (They didn’t, but oh well.)

#YouNeedToHaveTakenTheTestNoMoreThan72HoursBeforeYouArriveAtYourFinalDestinationButYouAlsoNeedToAllow48HoursForTheResultsToArrive

What a headache.

#SoWeHaveToHopeWeGetTheResultsInTimeAndThatTheyAreNegative

If it takes 48 hours we will already be on the road. Worse case scenario is we have to pay for the stupidly expensive tests at the airport (providing they have space).

#WeHadWantedToGetThemDoneWednesdayNightButTheySoldOutAndAsWeHaveAConnectingFlightSaturdayEveningWeNeedToDoThemThursdayMorning

We need to get more organised. We are going to the Birmingham airport drive through to get them done, though we are flying from London. There are some where you get sent a test and a doctor watches you do the test via webcam and can give you an instant pdf certificate, but they had sold out for this week…

Whine whine.

#IHaveBeenTakingBOutToTheParkMoreButIfThePlaygroundIsBusyIWillWaitUntilTheCrowdsLeave

I say crowds as there must be a summer school or group that has about 30 kids that takes it over. The same school/group that decided to start a race a metre away from us the other week…

#TheOtherDayAGuyWalkedRightByOurBlanketAgainWhenHeHad10MetresOfGrassToWalkOn

Maybe we sit too close to that edge of the park, but I don’t see why going 3m off course would harm him. Of course I said something along the lines of ‘Yeah, I know you wouldn’t think there was so much grass to walk on’ to B.

#SomeGoodNewsIsIHaveNotBeenSickIn9DaysAndLastNightWasTheFirstNightIDidNotGagFiveTimesAfterBrushingMyTeeth

Hurrah. I did a little heave, but it wasn’t much.

#HoweverTwoNightsAgoIDidGetMyFirstLegCrampOfThePregnancyAndItWasNotPleasant

Some pain fun to replace sick fun.

#IThinkIWasQuiteDehydratedSoLastNightIDrankALotBeforeBedAndIDidNotGetOne

Let’s hope it stays that way. I woke Tiago up with my oww-ing.

#SomePeopleHaveToldMeIAmBraveForHavingASecondOneAlready

Lol.

#IAmNotIJustHaveNothingElseGoingOnInMyLifeRightNowApartFromLookingAfterB #ItMakesSenseToHaveAnotherKidNowWhileIFeelStuckInLimboAndAmJustWaitingForTheNextChapterOfOurLives

We’re in Brum until at least the start of next summer, so it makes sense to ‘get on with things’.

#IWriteNotesForMyNextPostAndTwoDaysAgoIWroteThatIFeelLikeALoser #IWroteThatIAmWorkingVeryVeryFreelanceWithAdminWorkAndIAmJustWorkingOnMyOwnStuffThatNoOneCaresAbout

I love B, but I’d also love to have a job/commission where B could go to nursery a bit and I could feel a bit more like my old self. Obviously being pregnant now complicates things, but that’s also why I’m pregnant as there are no jobs/commissions around that I am suitable for/are worth it/fit.

#IKnowALotOfPeopleWouldLoveToBeInMyPositionRegardingKids

Having to awkwardly tell certain friends that you are pregnant before they find out from someone else, but you don’t want to tell them as you know it will upset them etc.

#IAmGratefulToBePregnantAndToHaveBButIDoFeelLikeALoser

If I had more local friends to hang out with would it be better? Once I’m double vaccinated I’m going to start going to a local pregnancy yoga class. I doubt I’ll make any good friends, but you never know and it’d be good to have a bit of time for myself and stretch well.

#ICriedTheOtherDayAsTiagoSaidHeWasLookingForwardToBoysNightsOnHoliday #IDoNotRememberTheLastTimeIHadAGirlsNightAndIAmNotSureWhenIWillAgain

Lol, I suddenly just started to cry. Tiago went to London the other month and hung out with a friend, and a friend came to Brum and he went to meet them for dinner/drinks. T says I should have a day to myself soon and do what I want. I want to go to London, but I also don’t want to if you know what I mean? This darn Covid. Once I’m double vacc’d I may feel differently, but I don’t want to be going when I’m SUPER pregnant.

#IAmTakingBOutMoreInTheHopesThatWeWillMeetSomePeople

Love the desperation. I do like looking at all the dogs though, and B usually tries to talk to them all – and also to crows and magpies.

#WeSpokeToAWomanTheOtherDayWhoSeemedNiceButLetsSeeIfWeSeeHerAgain

Her kid was a bit older than B, but she also had an older one. She talked about not having family nearby, but at least having some good friends.

#OnceIAmDoubleVaccinatedIAmGoingToTakeBToBirminghamCityCentreToSeeAShowAndGoForLunch

It’d be nice. I feel like I could look after her outside of the house and it’d be okay (remember that I have not gone far from the house with her by myself). By the time we go she might be down to one nap a day, though I hope she keeps it up for longer.

#IJustFeelLikeINeedToBeCarefulStillButIAlsoNeedToShowHerMoreOfWhatLifeCanBeLikeBeforeHerSiblingArrivesAndIProbablyWillNotFeelLikeGoingOutMuchForAWhile

Typically I finally feel like I could take her to town by myself, but then when the second one comes we will probably be stuck to the house more again. I can only do my best, and maybe with the second one I might be more chill? The idea of taking two to town sounds like a bit too much, so I should definitely try to take B a few times by herself so it would not be too daunting. Let’s see…

#IAmGettingQuiteIntoStretchingInTheMorningsNow

I am yet to take any pictures of myself with fruit and veg this time, and I think I will try to avoid that – says me on a post about raisins. If it’s me imitating B then that’s different (and there were no raisins on the shoot anyways).

Living with my Nan we are lucky as I have to screech pretty loudly for the neighbours to hear me. I can be less self conscious this time and do spend a lot of time singing to B…

I do not think I will ever have a cramp when pregnant and feel relaxed about it.

I have been getting annoyed this time by someone telling me to eat more fish. I haven’t intentionally eaten fish since I was 15. I know they mean well, but it’s quite annoying.

I have been hugging part of my maternity pillow from quite early on this time. I say part as there is a bit that unzips from the main bit. I got the main pillow out the other day, but actually I had forgotten that I can zip the little bit to the main bit. Just need to find where I put the small piece that joins them now…

I am really enjoying my stretching these days.

2nd August: I’m not totally sure on the photo editing. I had edited it differently, but I did not like it. I prefer this, but I’m still not sure. I like how B has one hand on Tiago and one on me though.

#WellThisWeekendWeHadOurFirstNightAwayFromMyNansHouseSinceWeMovedIn #ICanNotBelieveThatWeHaveBeenLivingHereForSevenMonthsAlready

I was anxious about it all, but it was nice to get away and see people.

#IWasSupposedToWriteAListOfThingsToTakeButOfCourseIDidNotAndWeForgotAFewThings

All that packing for one night… We took way too much stuff but I would rather take too much than too little. It took me a minute to remember how B’s cot folds up, but I managed it.

I do need to make a list for day trips and overnight stays though.

#TheMostMajorThingWasBsNoiseMachineThatPlaysWhileSheSleeps

Great. I remember saying to myself that I needed to pack it. Annoyingly I had gone in her room and noticed that I nearly forgot to take her nappies, but the noise machine is tucked out of the way.

#WeUsedMyPhoneForNapsAndThenTiagosForTheNight

This is what we played.

#OfCourseTheBatteryDiedButIThinkBOnlyWokeUpVeryBrieflySoThatWasGood

T’s phone needed to be charged so we had it plugged in for a bit, but we were worried about it being on all night so T went in to turn it off, and of course his phone died.

I did hear her briefly wake up at one point and that might have been why. It was good that she slept without it, but I thought with other people around it was a good idea to use it.

#WeWentToLiverpoolAsWeAreStillInTouchWithPeopleFromOurNCTGroup

NCT being the National Childcare Trust. We did a course with them to learn about looking after a baby, but also as we wanted to meet people as we didn’t know many people in Liverpool. And then we left.

#AndTheFirstBirthdayPartiesAreStartingToHappenSoWeWentForAJointParty

We can’t go to all of the parties (if it was a shorter drive then we would do), so it was nice that there was one for three of them. Shame we don’t have a group like them in Birmingham.

#ItWasAShameThatNotEveryoneCouldBeThereForItWasNiceToSeeSixOfThemTogether

The last time we saw some of them they were very small and not doing much. Now they are all crawling, standing up and one was walking! There are eight in total.

#BWasSuperShyWhenWeArrivedAndHeldBackOnOurPicnicBlanket

She just buried her head in it. I think it was because we were next to a lot of Dads and she doesn’t really see a lot of men. She’s usually less shy if there are a lot of babies around.

#AfterAWhileSheWasQuiteContentCrawlingRoundPickingUpEveryonesBearShapedPotatoSnacks

I don’t let B eat a lot of salt so she was in heaven. She was also eating a lot of triangular shaped adult snacks. I was surprised she ate so much dinner afterwards…

#ItRemindedMeOfGoingToSchoolDiscosAndJustSeeingHowManyBagsOfCrispsICouldEat

I think I ate seven once. Classy me.

#ThePartyHatsDidNotLastLongButTheyAllSeemedToEnjoyThemselvesAndItWasNiceToCatchUpWithTheOtherParents

They looked cute with them on. B’s was too big for her so I had to tie a knot in it.

#TheNextDayWeWentToMeetFriendsInTheCentreToHaveLunch

It was weird parking there as we always walked from home when we lived there.

#ItWasBsFirstMealAtARestaurantAndOurFirstSinceMovingToBirmingham

It seemed like a big occasion. I took no photos.

#SheJustHadBitsOfOurFoodAndIShouldHaveTakenAPictureOfHerCoveredInTomatoSauce

We looked at getting a meal for her, but we thought she would have barely eaten it. They had a kids menu, but it seemed for a lot older kids.

#ItWasSoHotOut

I had to take my shoes off as I was melting.

#LuckilyTheRestaurantManagedToGiveUsSomeShadeAsIWasWorriedAboutBGettingTooHot

And someone let us move as I could not have sat in the sun for that long.

#IThoughtItWouldHaveBeenReallyHotAtTheBirthdayPartyButItWasNotSoIDidNotDressAppropriately

It was fairly cold at the park for the party, so I thought the next day would be more of the same. I had shaved my legs in a hurry before we left Brum and cut my ankle quite badly (I’ve never cut myself that much shaving in my life). If I had known it would have been so hot I would have had no leggings on and worn sandals. Oh well. That’s what we get for being away from home and not checking the weather as much.

#LiverpoolLookedLikeItWasBackToNormalAsThereWereSoManyPeople

I was surprised on a day so hot that people were in the centre. I would have chilled in a park or a garden or something… but we had plans and they did too.

#WeWantedToGetAPictureWithTheBeatlesStatueButItWasTooBusy

Gone again are the days of it being super quiet. I guess it was a weekend and it was hot. I used to walk past it with B everyday on our walks.

#IFeelAwkwardHavingAPhotoTakenWithSoManyPeopleWatchingToo

There’s also a queue of people watching and yeah I find it awkward.

#WeWentToOpenEyeGalleryBrieflyToSeeFriends

We wanted to go for longer but it was already getting late.

#WeUsedTheBabyChangingFacilitiesAndItWasTheFirstTimeWeHaveChangedHerNappyInAPublicPlaceSinceMovingIThink

Bit weird to say, but again it feels worth mentioning. Our friends said they could hear B singing/talking from the reception area.

#WePlannedToGetOnTheRoadWhenItWasTimeForBsSecondNapSoSheCouldSleepInTheCar

We travelled to Liverpool when it was time for her first nap. We had left a little earlier and the first wake window is meant to be 2 hours 45 minutes to 3 hours. She fell asleep pretty much on 2 hours 45 minutes.

#OfCourseInTheEndWeLeftReallyLate

We know she can get away with being awake a little longer if she has to.

#BWasOvertiredAndCriedALotInTheCar

I was hoping to have a nap myself and read more of Pregnant Then Screwed, instead I was doing a lot of singing and stressing out.

#SheEndedUpSleepingFor10MinutesAboutTwoHoursLaterThanSheShouldHave

She woke up crying a lot. 🙁

#ThoughIWasABitRelievedAsIWasWorriedSheWouldNeedASuperLateBedtimeByThatPoint

You can’t win can you?

#HerRoomWasHotWhenWeGotBackSoWeTriedPuttingHerInAShortSleevedVestAndLuckilySheSleptTheWholeNight

Lighter sleeping bag or shorter sleeved top? We went for shorter sleeved top and it seemed okay. If it’s this hot in May I am worried for August, but we’ll hopefully get better at judging what she needs to wear.
