I was so lucky to be able to celebrate my birthday this year. I’ve been in and out of the hospital so much lately with this pregnancy, I had to actually tell the midwives that I would not come in for check ups on my birthday or the day after as I was having a baby shower too. I said if I felt unwell or had any of the symptoms that they’ve asked me a million times about, then I would call them or come straight in but I needed a break from the 4 bus journeys every day and wanted to spend some time with my family before Dexter arrived. I shouldn’t complain, they’re only looking after me, and of course doing their job but it really has been taking it out of me!
So we didn’t do anything extravagant, just a nice family meal with an awesome birthday cake.
It was nice to have a reason to put makeup on and treat myself a little bit so of course, we had to do the obligatory toilet mirror selfie with my sister Olivia and niece Demi.
