THE 10 WEEK COUNTDOWN

I'm now in the final stretch of my pregnancy and with only 6 weeks to go, I feel like I really need to soak in as much of everything as I can - before life changes completely again!

As this is my second pregnancy, I know that from now things are going to get pretty uncomfortable. Naturally so, as the baby is very close to full term and is running out of room, which is making daily tasks a lot more challenging.

And it's not just the effect the pregnancy is having on me, but also on Aria. Playing with her is getting to be a lot more tiring, and I am clearly in no state to chase her around a soft play, so I'm trying to find ways to continue that quality time with her without wearing myself out completely. I want to do a separate post on her, and our relationship, as I'm feeling quite emotional about it all if I'm honest.

Nesting is something I've been doing a lot of, and after redecorating/tweaking nearly every room in the house (seriously, I went a bit overboard didn't I?) the only room I have left is our bedroom. I'm itching to get started on it, and will hopefully have it done this week before our Snuzpod arrives and gets built ready for the little one's arrival.


I want to make the most of these last few weeks as much as I can - as crazy as it sounds, it's really sinking in that there is going to be a little person arriving at the end of all this! All those kicks, nudges and belly movements are coming from a person. Our little person. And we are so so excited to meet them.

PREGNANCY | THE HALFWAY STRUGGLE

Being pregnant is something I absolutely adore. I feel the most like myself when I'm pregnant. I feel more confident in my skin, and so much more sure of myself. Like I know what my purpose is.

But that doesn't mean that it is without it's challenges.

I'm currently 21 weeks pregnant and have hit the stage that I feared from my first pregnancy. To put it directly, I feel shit.

THERALINE MATERNITY PILLOW REVIEW & GIVEAWAY!

If there's one part of pregnancy that is a struggle, it's getting a good nights sleep.

I'm half way through my second pregnancy and I don't know if being active with a toddler is taking it's toll on my body more, or if I have just forgotten how difficult it was to get comfortable in an evening. Either way, my sleep is poor!

One thing I absolutely swear by, and has literally been a life changer, is a maternity pillow.

I've teamed up with the lovely people at Theraline to not only review their Original Maternity and Nursing Pillow, but also to give one away too! I mean, how exciting is that?
