I had to check back to last week to remind myself how many weeks pregnant I actually am! We have had the most amazing week away on holiday in Iceland, so I'm a bit all over the place as we try to organise our lives again. Pregnancy wise this week has been one filled with worry, something I've not overly experienced this time around. It has been because we were going abroad, away from the NHS and midwives I know. I was scared something might happen and I wouldn't be able to easily get the help needed or that the flight would cause some kind of complication.

This week has been one of the most magical weeks I've had in a while, we went on our first family holiday abroad to Iceland. Don't get me wrong, it was exhausting, but that country is simply breath-taking and we shared so many special family moments together. We chased the northern lights, swam in the Blue Lagoon, drove the Golden Circle, discovered Reykjavik and survived an intense snow storm! There will be plenty more all about our trip here on my blog and I've been posting lots of photo updates over on my Instagram, treasureeverym (you can also search #isabellaexploresiceland on Instagram to see all of our photos).

We're doing it. We're taking our energetic little toddler onto a confined space with hundreds of other people that we can't escape from, aka an aeroplane. Just the idea of flying with a child has scared me so much I've avoided it up until now, staycations are my new holiday love. However when my husband surprised me at Christmas with an incredible holiday booked to Iceland I knew that my fear of flying with a toddler was about to be faced.

Soon we are jetting off to the cold shores of Iceland, which was my Christmas present from my husband. He had been eager to go abroad in the summer, but I was too scared about taking a toddler on an aeroplane so we settled for a staycation instead. However fast forward quite a few months and I'm now about to take a toddler on a flight, whilst being pregnant! I'm actually feeling quite calm about the whole thing, which is surprising me. I'm a worrier at the best of times, but I'm so excited to visit Iceland as it's one country I've always wanted to visit. You see I hate hot weather, like really hate it, so where could be more perfect for me than a country called Iceland? So, very soon we will jetting off into the sunrise, braving flying with a toddler and experiencing the natural wonders of Iceland.

As we prepare to go on our first family holiday abroad this week has been pretty busy. There's been times where I've quite literally been running between jobs, but the to-do list is looking a lot lighter now. The downfall of being so busy and not taking the time to look after myself is that I feel on the edge becoming ill. Just a slight headache and sore throat, so fingers crossed it doesn't develop into anything.

What. a. week. It's been a crazily busy week, with barely a second to stop and take stock. Though lots of things have been ticked off my to-do list, such a satisfying feeling! I think I may have slightly overdone it, as I now feel on the edge of being ill and we're about to go on holiday. Just a slight headache and sore throat, nothing major I'm just really hoping it doesn't develop into anything. We've been on a pre-holiday mass organisation mission this week too, with many lists, phone calls, printed documents and piles of clothes dotted around the house. The run up to holidays is just the best.
