islandfairy Almost #40weekspregnant and subsisting mostly on almonds (most effective cure for heartburn I found) and chili fries. #yesimstillpregnant 8h
  •   _ohabigail What a great table xx 6h
  •   rymina So the almonds cure what the chili fries are giving you?? (sorry, I'm sure you're ready to kill somebody right about now.) Suddenly I'm glad I live a whole world away... 5h
  •   beadlor Thinking of you, hopefully baby will be in your arms real soon 5h
  •   islandfairy @rymina that's what logic would tell you, right? Strangely, the fries are not causing any heartburn. It's the lack of proper meals that is but my appetite isn't what it usually is. 3h
  •   islandfairy @beadlor thank you! 3h
  •   pineapplesoup Did you soak them!?(: 2h
  •   islandfairy @pineapplesoup nope! Roasted almonds. 2h

islandfairy Today's advent calendar called for a picnic around the Christmas tree and more Braxton Hicks. 2d
  •   islandfairy @kika_zamm true! I'm glad I can still count down to Christmas with the girls. 2d
  •   islandfairy @aplacetoshare they loved it! 2d
  •   islandfairy @ruralmummy I live 2 floors up (without lift), have been eating spicy everyday, have been loving my husband and today had fresh pineapple juice for good measure. Lots of pain all day but it all stops as soon as I lie down in bed at night. 2d
  •   ktollipop hang in there! Sophie was born on the 20th...five days past her due date...I'm so excited for you!! 2d
  •   ruralmummy Haha! Well it sounds like you physically can't do anymore!! 2d
  •   islandfairy @ktollipop thanks Kirsten! I'm trying to ignore dates at this point. I just feel a little useless and thoroughly exhausted. It's good preparation for what's to come. 2d
  •   islandfairy @ruralmummy maybe jump on a trampoline? 2d
  •   ruralmummy Haha! 2d

islandfairy One of the perks of being 9 months pregnant. 4d
  •   lucyskys These are my fave at the moment and if Chris goes in for one I could bite his hand off :P 4d
  •   islandfairy @lucyskys you're justified right now! Hope you're well. 4d

islandfairy Totally unrelated photo but I can't be bothered to take a bump photo right now. I need your help. We've no idea what to name this baby. If it's a girl, we have a few names that nobody but my husband and I like. If it's a boy, he'll be called Boy at this rate. Any suggestions that don't include made up names or weird spelling? (Ps - I don't believe that a name will magically come to us when we see the baby). 6d

islandfairy When Robin was born, we started a new tradition. Each child gets a new ornament each year. These are this year's: from left to right - Maia's, Robin's and baby's. 1w

islandfairy We ️ Olaf, but Robin (as predicted) was scared of him. When I asked her why, she mumbled with wide-open eyes "there was someone in his mouth!". 1w

islandfairy Bathroom selfie for this grumpy pregnant woman. After a few false starts, I'm so so ready to pop. I know there are still a couple of weeks to go but I've never felt so ready to give birth. #38plusweeks #3rdsaguna #thingsidontwanttoeverforget 2w

islandfairy And when I said she loved Enid Blyton, I meant she REALLY loved her. 2w
  •   steffyab seeing a kid with a book (not a tablet) is like a breath of fresh air! 2w
  •   islandfairy @lumitumi she read it over a year ago and still mentions it! 2w
  •   islandfairy @steffyab don't let this photo fool you Stef! She could spend all day on the tablet but I hide it all the time. 2w
  •   steffyab Yepp same here @islandfairy . I only let them use it for a very limited time, otherwise they are hooked! 2w
  •   nux115 I was exactly the same with Enid blyton books..they were what hooked me on reading and I haven't changed 20 years later 2w
  •   coritabee I was exactly the same. I'd take the books over at table to the toilet, in the car, walking over to somewhere... You name it. 7d
  •   mercandjones Girl after my own heart! Enid was my fave growing up. The background of this pic also tugged at the heart strings. I miss the island so much. 5d
  •   islandfairy @mercandjones when are you coming back? 5d

islandfairy Seriously struggling this week. Little sleep, very painful back, Braxton Hicks and very loose joints causing me to waddle and try to keep my balance. On a positive note, baby seems to be dropping and dr is very positive (even though baby is now pretty big), unlike me. #38weekspregnant #3rdsaguna 2w

islandfairy Enid Blyton does it again. Blyton's old books are her very favourite. I don't understand how, when there is so much choice nowadays but seeing her read the same books we did at her age makes me happy. 2w
  •   rachael_mama Love Enid Blyton! Can't wait for Ruby to read them. Famous Five were my favourites! 2w

islandfairy I asked her whether I could take a photo of her and she started firing poses so fast I couldn't keep up. 2w
  •   beadlor I know she keeps you on your toes but with a smile like that, it's worth it 2w
  •   islandfairy @beadlor I wouldn't want her any other way. 2w

islandfairy Let the countdown begin! #adventcalendar 2w
  •   aplacetoshare LOVE it!! 2w
  •   islandfairy @aplacetoshare it's a repeat of 2 Christmases ago I'm afraid! There are simple activities/occasional treats inside. I had to factor in the possibility of the baby arriving any day so I'd have to pass it on to my husband. 2w
  •   aplacetoshare Now I remember! Completely! In fact I saved and filed it away. The problem is I still need to go through those files... Someday – after my kids are grown? This is exactly what we're doing this year… For so many many reasons. Simple activities/occasional treats... Couldn't think of the right words, so thank you for that. And regarding the baby – I know! I was wondering! Thank God for husbands. 2w
  •   giuliagiulai Hey sweet mama, how are you?? 2w
