I am now well into the second trimester + am SIX months pregnant. I can’t believe how quick it’s going!? BUMP + I have been on a couple of trips since my announcement and spent a week in PALMA + a long weekend in IBIZA. Both of these trips were planned pre-pregnancy and were for two of my best friends hen do’s – definitely didn’t go as WILD as I would have liked but I’m sure there is plenty of time to make up for it!
Around 14 weeks my sickness completely went away + I felt (almost) normal again. Everyone said it would eventually go and I was so glad when it did. I started to feel like me again, had SO much more energy + really started to embrace my pregnancy. I’m really lucky in the fact that my weight doesn’t fluctuate too much and so far, it’s seemed to stay that way since I’ve been pregnant so I haven’t felt I have to adapt my style too much. I’m still eating my usual healthy balanced diet but if I really fancy something I’ve still been having it. BABY wants TWO SLABS of CAKE, BABY gets two slabs of cake.
I just wanted to share a few of my favourite BUMP looks so far in my pregnancy and to prove you can still be YOU when you are pregnant and feel good in yourself. I’ve pretty much just been buying things one size up + maternity clothes in my normal size.
I know everyone’s pregnancies are completely different but I have found all the below has kept me on track + made it an enjoyable experience so far…
EAT WELL. You will glow from the inside out.
GET MOVING. You will feel so much better for it, whether it’s ten minutes of pilates, a walk after dinner or a yoga class. You won’t regret it.
PAMPER YOURSELF. I have felt a million times better since keeping on top of my hair, nails, tan etc. Us baby mamas still want to look good!
REST WHEN NEEDED. I’ve had weekends when I’ve had SO much to do but all I’ve wanted to do is…NETFLIX + CHILL. Listen to your body.
PLAN. Make a list of some fun things to do before the baby arrives, whether that be with your girls or baby daddy.
I’ve got lots coming up over the next few months but one thing that was really important to me was to have one last holiday with Nath before the baby so we are off to IBIZA in SEPTEMBER. Eeee, this will be mine + bumps third trip to the white isle this year.
We are also moving house this weekend and I am BEYOND EXCITED for a fresh start and to start NESTING. I’ll be writing another post soon about all my favourite baby buys so far…
I have also booked a six week hypnobirthing/pregnancy yoga course which starts next month so I’m looking forward to seeing what that will entail!
