    26 WEEK PREGNANCY UPDATE | EMILY NORRIS

    I’m so tired. Oh, so tired. Hi guys, and welcome back to my pregnancy update. This is going to my 26th week of pregnancy, all the symptoms that I’ve experienced, any new products I’m using, my bump, all of that kind of stuff.

I’m really getting out of breath as well now, and I just feel like my bump is really growing and I’m running out of space and I’m getting all of these…

    32 & 33 WEEKS PREGNANT | PREGNANCY UPDATE

    Hi, guys. Welcome back to my pregnancy updates. Today I’m going to update you on how week 32 and 33 has gone. Basically, the baby now should weigh about four pounds, and be up to 48 centimeters, so getting really big now. His bones are hardening, may have hair, his immune system is totally developed now, so that’s good, and also, from now on he is going to put on about half a pound a week, so really getting nice and fat hopefully. Yeah, so the most exciting thing that’s happened this week is I have finished work. Yay. I work three days a week in an office, doing marketing,…

    41 WEEKS PREGNANT | SWEEP, INDUCTION, SHOW & HAUL

    – I should not be making this update. I can’t believe that I’m filming my 41 week pregnancy update. I have never made it to 41 weeks before in my two other pregnancies. But this boy is being a little bit lazy. (laughs) Might possibly be some of my fault because obviously I so wanted a September baby so I kind of did everything I could to keep him in. I didn’t do the long walks or the bouncing on the birth ball or raspberry leaf tea or any of that, whereas with my previous boys I probably started all of that at like 38 weeks, but because I wanted…

    30 & 31 WEEK PREGNANCY UPDATE

    Hi guys, and welcome back to my pregnancy update. This is going to be my update for week 30 and 31. I tried to do this every week, but life is just so busy at the moment with work, kids, vlogging, everything that I’m struggling to find time to film this so I’m actually filming this late at night so I hope the light is okay. And I have got a top on, it’s just an off the shoulder one, don’t want to look to naked or something. Anyway, in this update I’m going to let you know any new symptoms I have been feeling, any new products and at…

    Bodybuilding Mother-of-four Juggles Family And Firefighting

    COMM: Forty-year-old Lorna Biggam is a competitive bodybuilder and that’s not all, she’s also a full-time firefighter and a mum to four kids. LORNA: If I can motivate and inspire other females into the sport then that would be a massive achievement as well. COMM: Lorna only started bodybuilding a few years ago, but has taken the male dominated sport by storm. LORNA: I started bodybuilding competitively in 2012 when I did my first show six months after I started training. I then entered the Scottish Championships in 2013. My body responded so well to training that within a year I’d actually won the Trained Figure, which was quite an…

    What They Don’t Tell You About Labour

    TV lied to us When they’re checking how dilated you are it’s not really like that It’s more… That Like they’re holding an egg inside of you Brace yourselves for that one I read the books and I went to antenatal classes but when it came to the big day, there was a few wee sneaky details that folk kinda left out there. So to save you from surprise, I thought I’d give all you pregnant mamas out there just a wee heads up If you’re being induced, the pessary is inserted by hand Some midwives think the phrase “Just relax” is a completely acceptable phrase to use when they…

    7 WEEKS PREGNANT UPDATE | EMILY NORRIS

    Well, hi. I’m Emily, and my hair is like a mushroom. Hi guys, I’m back with my seven week pregnancy update. I’m going to be eight weeks tomorrow, so I’m going to talk about how the last week has been, any symptoms I’ve had, and stuff like that. First, I just wanted to say that the baby at the start of the week was the size of a blueberry, and now it’s getting more like the size of a kidney bean. That’s pretty cool, and it’s also got little hands and feet now coming from like the arm buds and stuff. It’s also got eyelids, a nose, and the baby’s…
