Pregnancy diary: 18 weeks, baby 7

This pregnancy is going very well and I'm feeling so great, the weeks are now flying by as I'm keeping myself really busy.

I've uploaded a new video to my YouTube channel, Life of Mummy.  Thank you so much to everyone who's subscribed to my channel and has liked my videos.  Feel free to take a look at an update of my pregnancy over the past two weeks.

Back to school, is it right?

For almost four years I have been home educating all but my eldest child but now that my second eldest child is eleven she has decided she would like to try senior school.  I've had mixed emotions about her decision, on the one hand I feel so proud that she's confident enough to want to try something new and meet lots of new people but on the other hand I would love to continue to wrap her up in cotton wool and mollycoddle her forever more.

Win The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - Giveaway


This is an excellent book about love, life and death.  The story takes you on quite a roller-coaster of emotions as you follow Hazel and Augustus' relationship, the two have cancer which has understandably given them a rather cynical outlook on life.

A teenage son without ambition

My eldest child is now sixteen and a half, he's just finished his GCSEs and is awaiting the results.  Ed didn't revise at all for his GCSEs and doesn't seem concerned about the results, he normally receives A*s for all his work that he hasn't put any effort into which has allowed him to develop this laid back attitude.  Sometimes I feel annoyed and think he should be trying harder but mostly I'm pleased that he's able to have such an easy going life.

16 Weeks - Baby #7 - vlog

For this week's update I have done another vlog which I hope you enjoy.  It still makes me nervous when making these videos but I shall persevere until one day, hopefully, I will no longer feel nervous!  It's nice to have a recorded pregnancy diary that I can look back on and that my children can look at too and perhaps one day they may even compare their pregnancies to how mine was at the same stage.

I know my camera work isn't great at the moment but it's a work in progress, hey this week I even managed to do a bit of editing, by editing I mean I just trimmed out a few pauses!  I need to learn a lot more and this pregnancy vlogging is a fun way to learn.
