Thanks for the #widn tag @mrs_ivf_icsi_twins - I've had a very slow Sunday & spent most of the day just plodding about our new house and resting, hoping our little twin 2 will be ok at tomorrow's assessment. Just came onto Instagram to have a little nosey & have discovered @archiesboutique - how have I not discovered this before?! So tempted to buy absolutely everything!! 💗💗
It was so nice to finally be able to have all our family over (minus a couple of Benson's) & for everyone to fit! As much as I loved our old house, we never could have had everyone over in one go & it was so lovely today. The house already feels so homely - can't wait to get curtains up & add the finishing touches. 🏡❤️ Ps. Thank you @barkerandstonehouse for the world's comfiest sofa. Exactly what I need at 28 weeks pregnant with twins!
Sharing an old pic from the first trimester, though I'm officially in the third now. Both babies are exactly the same weight and are growing fine... however today at our scan Twin 2 had a reduced flow through her cord. There's lots of reasons why this could happen but of course it could be the start of #ttts - thankfully we have an amazing team of people looking after us & I've been ordered to rest & we're back to get checked on Monday. Praying that everything will be ok and rooting myself to our new sofa all weekend. Come on girlies 💗💗
27 W E E K S 🤰🏻This bump is definitely growing! I feel very lop-sided & my lung capacity is basically zero which hasn't been fun as I've been wanting to help more this week in the new house. Only a few more days till the carpets are in and hopefully we'll be able to relax more and the shadows under my eyes won't look so bad!
Operation chimney breast is now complete... we wanted something soft and light to go with the cushions on our sofa. Ended up picking up @farrowandball stiffkey blue as a wildcard! 🙈 Ten points to the first person who guesses what we chose...
Never been so excited to see handles! I can't believe in only one week we should be sort of moved in! Feeling very thankful to everyone who keeps coming to help work on the new house. It's amazing to see how far it's come in just a few weeks. Who wants a sneaky peek at the twins nursery? 🏡💗💗
Flipping through the latest issue of @gurglemagazine & look who's in it! 💁🏻
I’ve been tagged a few times in these #20thingsaboutme posts and I’m only just getting around to doing it! Whoops! I’ve been loving reading everyones so I’ll tag a couple people at the end of this post if you feel like joining in. So here goes… • I grew up in the countryside & lived on my parents farm. However I fell in love with London in my late teens & the city has always had my heart. • Despite this I’m moving back to the countryside to live in a farmhouse which my husband is renovating! • I’m named after the Susan Coolidge books ‘What Katy Did’ My Dad chose my middle name ‘Samantha’ after Samantha Fox… • I waffle. A lot. I do it out loud, talking to myself and also in my head. • I very rarely ever wear make up. • I’m 30 and I still get id’d! • Buying my house on my own was one of my proudest achievements. • I met my husband @_jay_tate_ on tinder & I knew from the moment he asked me to go for a ‘parmo' he was the man for me. • We planned our entire wedding in 3.5 months & although everyone says this, it really was the happiest, best day of my life. I wish we could do it all over again. • I dislike anything scary but Jay & his family are all very entrepreneurial. One of their businesses which I now work on is the North East’s largest Halloween Haunt Scream Factory @screamscometrue • At last year’s Scream Factory while waiting for a journalist, I got so spooked by one of the actors, I ran, tripped & landed in a bush! • I love horse riding and miss having my own horse. • While working at @TruffleSocial I got to meet The Hoff. I even have my photo with him but no one believes me because he looks so plastic in the picture they think it’s his waxwork. • I’ve been blogging and writing online since I first got the internet age 12.
