Just an FYI to anyone else who wants to suggest we rehome our dogs because we have a baby on the way... did you forget that we already have a child and these dogs are more than used to being around him? Did you forget that Rich and I have both been dog owners our ENTIRE adult lives? Did you forget that we rescue and foster... not abandon? THESE. DOGS. ARE. NOT. GOING. ANYWHERE!!! So please don’t come at me with your ‘helpful’ suggestions!! They are as much a part of this family as any other member! #pyreneanmountaindog #dogsofinstagram #dogsofig #giantbreeds #giantbreed #dogs #YorkiesOfInstagram #yorkie #yorkshireterrier #minpin #greatpyreneesofthehour #greatpyrenees #dog #instadog #pyreneesoftheday #pyreneesofinstagram #dogslife #minipinmix #parenting

So here’s my story that I’ve been up bottling up and not sharing for a whole year. I’m a 32 year old post grad studying a PhD (my dream) who has been bullied for almost a whole year by a fellow student now. I have a strong personality, most days I can rise above it. The miracle that is this little baby spurred me on to believe in myself in the academic world funnily enough, I’m sure that without this miracle I would’ve quit by now and walked away from my dream. The person in question has been very subtle in their bullying, comments of how I don’t deserve a seat at the table, constant gossiping behind my back, fabrications and false accusations. I’ve reported this to superiors, written a blog post about it, sought advice from student support and still they persist. I’m told to ‘rise above it’ because I’m older. One of my mentors even suggested that it was my ‘mental state’ making me hormonal and overreact to these actions because of an event that happened to me during my masters year. It was even suggested that I was jealous of this person because of funding options! Anyway last week it all just got to me a little bit... at 9 and a half months pregnant I was signed up to fitness and nutrition companies and received a series of emails about working on my body fat and my weight loss ‘issues’. After losing almost 50lbs this pregnancy because of Hyperemesis Gravidarum they decided to fat shame me. And yes I know it was this person because when we were friends they did this to another student at their previous university (much to my disgust), they weren’t even smart enough to change their tactics! Well, I was having a shit day and I just cried on the phone to my rock, because being this sick, losing this much weight during pregnancy and then being body shamed really got to me. I guess I just could not believe that almost a year after I reported the first initial incident it was still going on and I guess this post is me just saying to my bully that I’m tired of your shit, I’m tired of you behaving how you want and everybody believing that you’re perfect. I’m tired of you doing things like bumping into my friends and abusing them because they won’t (cont in comments)

This is why I’m a mother-fucking over-sharer! Because we all need to be sticking together, being honest about real-life, and raising each other up not tearing each other down! Thank you to the women who have sent me these messages and others who have reached out recently! You’re all amazing and have provided so much strength and support 😘😘😘 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 #feminist #feminism #femaleequality #femaleempowerment #womensrights #womensequality #smashthepatriarchy #patriarchy #intersectional #intersectionalfeminism #equality #equalrights #equalityforall #activist #activism #ukfeminism #ukfeminism

And so here she is finally, Freddie Felicity Simmonds, born today at 14:10 weighing just over 6lbs. We’ve waited years for this moment and just like her big brother, my Prince Harry, this little warrior fought the good fight to make our family complete. Named after two of my very favourites and one of Rich’s, I hope they bestow on her the naughtiness, kindness, love and determination they displayed throughout their lives. We couldn’t be happier, she has most definitely been worth the wait. Expect to be absolutely bombarded with updates from this day forward! @repentlessrich

First trip out (midwife and mothercare 🙌🏻🙌🏻) and first ever dress 💖💖 #ffs #babygirl #happiness

This time last week I was lying in theatre telling Richy how scared I was, mid c-section, with him reassuring me that everything was going ok. Due date is the 25th and Fred was supposed to be born via planned c-section yesterday (22nd). But due to almost 3 days of contractions with no dilation it was decided last week that she was going to make an early appearance. It all happened so so fast, within a couple of hours of the decision being made she was here. The c-section was an experience I’ll never forget. The nerves and apprehension, but also the love and support from Rich and the epic theatre team we had that day, they all did absolutely everything they could to put me at ease and to include me in the entire process. At 14:10 she arrived and hearing her cry for the very first time is an experience I will never ever forget! As soon as they passed Fred over to Rich we couldn’t take our eyes off her, a bundle of absolute perfection. I haven’t been able to take my eyes off her since and this past week has been the absolute happiest of our lives. I’m completely blessed to have the best family ever, two perfect kiddos and the most supportive other half ❤️❤️ life is so sweet! #oneweekold #happiness #family #birthstory #babygirl #parenting #motherhood #csectionstory #love #mumandbaby #selfie #selfiewankers
