We have been enjoying what will probably be our last holiday before the baby comes this week. Brighton has been great, and it’s been wonderful to see my aunt and uncle so they can see the bump!
I’ve found that walking around has been rather tougher than usual due to the extra weight I’m carrying, and some shoes I haven’t worn since last year are a little tighter too! Other than that I’ve been feeling good and enjoying having a really pregnant looking bump to show off, it’s quite amazing lying in bed at night and feeling just how big my uterus is now!
First Half Favourites
Now that I’m almost half way though the pregnancy I thought I’d share some of the things that have helped me so far. I’m blatantly taking inspiration for this post from one of my favourite beautiful pregnant bloggers Kaelah from The Clueless Girls Guide. I’ve been loving her pregnancy style!
From top left to right: Jules Oliver Minus Nine to One: my favourite pregnancy / baby book // Popchips: My ultimate morning sickness cure // long line stripy vest from H&M // Stripy dress from H&M // Primark maternity jeggings, in fact most of Primarks Maternity line // green smoothies! // Neom Cocooning Gift Set // Rennies: for heartburn of course // stretchy bra tops // Baby Center Phone App: great for tracking the baby’s development // Vita Coco Coconut Water
Sometimes it’s just having those things that make life a little easier and that make you feel better which make all the difference!
If you’ve had a baby, did you have any particular favourite things that helped you though the first half? If you haven’t experienced the joys of pregnancy, what are your favourites right now? Any phone apps you are loving?
