Oh shit, I have a blog don't I?

It feels like forever since I've blogged. 

I forever hear myself say 'I'm going to blog more' and when it comes to sitting in front of my computer, my mind goes blank. 

Blogging is where everything started for me, and I really treasure this little space on the internet, but I feel like I'm either a blogger or vlogger, not both. 

I simply don't have the mind capacity to do both. I often find it easier to sit in front of a camera and let my mind flow naturally, rather than put it all down on paper. Or screen... 

I thought because I was pregnant I would get my mojo back, as that is how my blog began, but I find my blog slips to the back of my mind and every so often I say 'oh shit, I have a blog don't I?' And panic that I need to get some more content out there. 

But I don't want this to be a place that I HAVE to write, I want to WANT to write. If that makes any sense. 

I'm currently a day over my due date, and have so many thoughts and emotions spinning around my head, that I really feel like blogging would help, so I'm hoping that I can get it down in words and share with you all before the madness of a toddler and newborn take over. 

So this post is a little bit of a hello, I'm sorry, and I'll see you all soon... I hope! :)

Firstly, I'ts been a while since I've done a pregnancy update on my blog! But I've been doing them weekly on my YouTube channel, so make sure to go check them out over there too so you are kept up to date :)

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.

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.
