25-33 Week Update

33 weeks, I can’t believe It’s here already. This pregnancy has absolutely flown by and now I’ve hit the final seven weeks. I am so excited. Although the third trimester has bought heart burn and discomfort this baby girl is the most active little thing and is so ready to meet us. I’ve been slowly getting more and more tired as the weeks are going by yet sleeping is getting less and less, any tips for comfy side sleeping would be much appreciated. Before now it felt  ...

Preventing Pregnancy with an App? Really?

As I am sat here on this chilly autumn night I came across something which actually quite shocked me. Firstly I think women can drive themselves a bit potty with pregnancy tests, apps, how to’s, what to’s and the ever-growing abyss of the internet when trying to conceive. For us it was more keeping track of what was happening to my body when. One app I absolutely swore by was one called P.D. It asks you how you’re feeling on certain days, you track your period etc and it  ...

Natural Spa Factory is helping me soothe my aches and pains

Vowing to take it easy this pregnancy and In all honesty I have done anything but. From trips to London every other weekend on business to walking ten miles a day in Italy for 2 weeks, I can kind of understand why my ankles are swollen and I think I am coming down with a cold. So I have put myself on evening bed rest. I will be spending the next few weeks relaxing and chilling out in the evenings with maybe a little blogging on the side. But all trips to London have been cancelled for the  ...

Bump Update | Boy or Girl?

From the moment I took the test I knew it was a boy. I felt it in my bones. Call it intuition, call it foolishness, call it what you will but I knew I was having a boy. I have had not one moment of morning sickness (typically known with boys), I was glowing and I was growing… fast. Despite my cockiness we decided to have a 16 week scan to find out as we would be on out babymoon for our 20 week scan so over to Baby Bond we went. At our 12 week scan the baby was right at the front of my  ...

Why people are making me cry these days!

Why ARE people making me cry these days?! Yes ok pregnancy hormones are kicking in (you can follow my pregnancy journey here) but I have recently been seeing people in a different light. By that I mean, most people are one for themselves, why wouldn’t they be? Who wants to do something for others if there is nothing in it for them these days. I am proudly not one of those people. If someone is struggling with their shopping and I have a free hand of course I will help them, they  ...

Bump update Week 16| Journey into my 2nd Trimester

They say week 14 onwards things start getting easier, thankfully, I have spent the past 14 weeks feeling great allbeit tired. I am so lucky to have not one moment of morning sickness and for that I am eternally grateful. I have suffered from a few headaches but I think that I would rather have that than be throwing up every morning. I feel like my body was made for pregnancy. It has taken it in its stride and although I am probably measuring quite big, I know that I would rather be big and  ...

First Trimester | What they don’t tell you

Incorporating my personal life into my blog, I have decide, is so right (for me). Adding opinion and stories stops it turning into an advertising forum. I think some posts I do are super important and I know will help other people going forward. Whether it be to steer clear of a certain product or a product that will change your life or even (almost) a for-warning of whats to come – like this post. Things I wasn’t told throughout my first trimester is something I knew I wanted  ...

And then there were four

I think this is one of the best posts I have ever written. Today’s lovely post comes to you in the form of Baby Ritson due early 2018. Phil, Tommy and I are so very happy and excited to have a beautiful baby on the way. You might be wondering how the bump seemingly appeared overnight. For a short time, hiding it in photos was relatively easy, baggy clothing, leaning forward slightly or to the side at the right angles. But over the past six weeks or so, I’ve definitely been showing and  ...
