29 Week Pregnancy Update

29 Week Pregnancy Update

How far along: 29 weeks + 4 days
Weight Gain: Last time i checked it was 2 stones. 
Symptoms: Little dizziness and nauseous. I've had to go back on Ferrous Sulfate (Iron tables) due to my low blood so it's been making me feel a little queasy at times, but besides from that it's all been good. 
Food Cravings: Biscuiteers!!! If you follow me on Twitter then you might of seen me tweeting all about my cravings, luckily i managed to force the Fiance to buy me some as a last minute Valentines present and my bestie also got me some! I'm also really craving Sushi at the moment, i'm not usually a huge sushi fan but i could really do with some Avocado Maki's and Salmon Teriyaki from Yo Sushi. 
Movement: She's been moving around like crazy past few days, it's so amazing to feel her little kicks. Sometimes they aren't so 'little' and her kicks sometimes scare the crap out of me during the night time.
I had a little scare last week when i didn't feel her moving as much but that's now changed and she's back to kicking me constantly! 
Gender: Baby girl!
Sleep: Still very uncomfortable with the back and pelvic pain which the midwife said i've got to have physiotherapy for and the sleep's been on and off, some nights i'll be able to fall asleep straight away then some nights i'd literally get the sweats so badly and won't be able to sleep all night. Still having to get up 2-3 times a night for a pee too and find it difficult to get back to sleep after. 
Miss Anything: Missing going out! I can't go out much due to the PGP (Pelvic Girdle Pain) i'm limping around everywhere i go and find it difficult to stand for long periods of time.
Best Moment: The 28 week check-up with the midwife where we got to hear her little heart beating again and also I've officially left work for maternity now. I had to leave a little earlier than expected due to my condition but i'm happy about it as i really couldn't take much of work right now. 
Worst Moment: Again, the pelvic pain!! It's possibly the worst thing i've experienced in terms of pain although i'm hoping the physio will do something.. Also finding out the baby was at Breech but i won't be letting that get to me, as long as she's healthy then that's all that matters right now. Plus she still has plenty of time to turn around.
Maternity Clothes: I've purchased a couple of maternity leggings and a comfy pair of joggers. Besides from that, i'm still fitting into most of my tops. 
Looking forward to: Our 4D scan which we have next week so i'll be keeping you posted with some pictures on my next update.

Hey guys! *Just a quick note that this post is going to be a bit of a long one so grab yourself a cuppa first and sit down and have a little catch up with me*
So it's been ages since i last blogged on here in fact my last post on this blog was from May (LAST YEAR!!) and i've had a few people asking if i've quit blogging but in all honesty i couldn't really give you an answer. For the longest time now i've really contemplated starting a fresh and just letting go of this blog, i've been blogging now for 5 years and to me it's just a hobby, nothing else nothing more.. But i just didn't really have the time for it or the love, passion or motivation i had for it like i did before.
However this blog has now taken a huge turn and you'll be seeing a lot more posts and updates from me, and of course on my pregnancy, birth etc now too.

I found out i was expecting when i was just 2-3 weeks pregnant which feels like forever to me, it's been amazing, emotional, exciting and scary all at the same time and a roller coaster ride. I am now currently 27w+3 days now and even though pregnancy hasn't been that great right from the start i've really been enjoying it now.

This month we have a very exciting Glossybox* edition, not just one but four collectable boxes - London, Paris, New York and Berlin. I think the name of the box says it all really but this month's box is for the City Breakers and city breaks don't just call for the usual bikini and sunglasses, this month Glossybox has the beauty travel companions sorted for us.

Glossybox Spring Preening | April 2016

This post is a tad late, and when i say a tad i mean a whole month late.. BUT this is the first Glossybox* post where i have actually tried and tested all the products and can actually give a proper review on each product and what i think of them from my first impressions.

Bee Good Lime Blossom & Honey Lip Balm

When people ask me tips on anything beauty related I could honestly tell them a ton of my go-to tips for skincare, makeup, haircare etc but one thing I always tell people no matter what and probably one thing i always tell my fiance which probably drives him up the wall is to always apply lip balm. You will never see me without a lip balm.. I always have one handy in my pockets, in my handbag, in the bathroom, on my bedside table and i always have one on my desk too.
