At 36 weeks we decided to do a maternity photo shoot to remember this pregnancy memories. How many others have done this? Did you enjoy it? It took us quite a while to actually relax and enjoy it but we are soo happy with the end result, can’t wait to frame them.   S xx…

My First Stretch marks #35weeks

Every woman dreads them. Most women get them. It is a fact that we are lucky if we only get a few – I know I for one have checked each part of my hips / bump/bottom & legs whilst applying stretchmark cream nightly – so in light of this I think I haver done…

Fornightly scans..

Soo it is the final countdown, everything growth and baby wise is happening. We have just over 7 weeks left to go, so our doctor scans baby every 2 weeks to check on placement and growth. I have my first set of stretchmarks We only have baby monitors to buy and a changing mat for…

Baby has found my ribs!

This last two days my little dude has officially found my ribs – it creeps me out. I love feeling him kick, but I am so used to him being breech where all the kicks were down low, now he has moved and become more active I feel him kicking away at my ribs and…

Wiggle it… just a little bit!!

I have heard it all before when friends have been pregnant, when their relatives have said oohh their baby is so active” he is gonna be a footballer!” Well now as I get kicked the crap out of I think my little dude is gonna be a gymnast I started feeling movement at 16 weeks…

Where is my Vagina??

Now I know I have a lot more growing to do, but as I got a shower this morning & thought I may attend to some grooming down there I realised I cant even see my vagina any more! Now am not entirely sure when  this happened but I feel like it is a bit of…

The hand magnet

The baby bump… it is a very personal thing that sticks on the outside of your body that strangers are attracted to. Now, you could compare this to boobs –  they are a very personal thing that stick on the outside of your body – yet “boob-etiquette” prevents strangers coming upto you and just having…

Bump Update – Beach bump!

It was my first beach day last weekend & I felt sooo vulnerable with my new body shape, which really is silly as we should be proud of our shape after all it is carrying future life! My best friend was with me and thought it would be fun to snap a few pictures to…

Picking a baby name without picking a fight!

Hey All! So my little ones impending arrival is coming closer and with a summer filled with fun, friends and sweat 😉  I know it will fly by! My other half & I have gone through a variety of nicknames for our little one including: Gremlin upon first finding out Jimbo – more recent and…

Reap the rewards

So I am nearly 22 weeks & this last week I have been exhausted with backache that has literally crippled me! I have never felt so unlike myself or demotivated at life. However I have kept up with my light workouts 3 times a week & swimming / jogging 5 times & I can see…

The halfway mark!

Wooohooo!!  So I have officially hit the halfway mark & smashed it! I am nearly 21 weeks and feeling very pregnant and very excited with a little mix of anxious in there too! There is so much to think about and it just dawned on me actually not so much time! My number 1 stress…

Milestone: The first pair of jeans that just don’t fit!

So I love my bump I really do, I also love looking nice and feeling nice when I wear nice clothes. So it is safe to say when my favourite jeans just would not button up it was a sad milestone one way and a happy milestone in another way! I tied them up with a…
