Pregnancy Update

I haven't really done a pregnancy post yet but I saw this on Liza's blog and thought it was a nice idea to keep you all updated with how things are going. If it's something you like reading please tell me... I was a bit sceptical as to how it would go down but I hope you enjoy it. It's only brief but gives you an in-sight as to how Me & Bump are getting on! 

Due date?
28th April 2013.

How far along? 
31 Weeks.


Maternity clothes?

Leggings and tights as they have support for my bump. Everything else is just a size or two bigger than what I normally am. Currently living in midi dresses as they fit perfectly around my bump and are so comfortable!

Waking up at least once a night to go for a wee and hard to get comfy!

Very wriggly. Less kicks and more turning. She seems to like to wake me up and move the most when I want to go to sleep! 

Not so much cravings but I have a huge thing for chocolate now at the minute. I can't get enough of it. That, and coco-pops! 


Other than the obvious bump and big boobs, no symptoms. Getting tired quicker now and struggle to walk for a long time though. 

Best moment this week?
Nothing baby related but waking up this morning with my boyfriend actually being in bed was nice! He's either always at work or can't lie in because he wakes up super early! 

Miss anything?
Pizza. Since i've been pregnant, I can't eat pizza! I've tried and just can't do it. Makes me wanna vom! Ugh!

 Anything making you queasy or sick? 
As above... Pizza, curry and stir-fry. The smell of curry or stir-fry makes me heave! 

Labour signs?
Not yet. ..

Belly button in or out?
Half & Half. Kind of in, kind of out. Definitely popping out though! 

Wedding rings on or off?

I'm not married (yet) but my rings I normally wear on my thumb, ring finger & little finger had to come off this week. My hands are definitely getting fat! 

Happy or moody most of the time?
Happy with vile days of depression and feeling shitty. 

Looking forward to?
My midwife apppointment on Tuesday to hear her heartbeat and find out which way she's lying! 

Are you pregnant too? What has your pregnancy been like so far!? 


  1. Hi hun! :)

    Congrats on your pregnancy! :) Lovely scan photos!!!

    I am a pregnancy blogger too, I have had the same problem with pizza! I miss it so much! :(


    1. Haha no way! I thought it was just me, i haven't heard of anyone else going off pizza or any of the others!

      I'll check out your blog now hun! :)


  2. Aw I really loved this post! I'm so excited for you :) xx

  3. Aww you're due just before me (I'm 2nd May). I am struggling to sleep at the mo but other than that and being low on iron supplies I can't really complain :D

    Great post.

  4. I 'awww'-ed at this post, so excited for you to have a little girl! Just discovered your blog lovely! Wishing you all the best wishes and luck for the birth!

  5. Awww I'm so excited for you to have a little girl! I discovered your blog through the #bbloggers chat! Wishing you all the best wishes & luck for the birth of your little girl! :) x Laura

  6. I love this! You sound pretty similar to me when I was pregnant (6 months a go now but it feels like yesterday!) I didn't really have any bad symptoms and I didn't have to wear maternity clothes, like you I just went for things a size bigger. My fingers got smaller though which was weird, all my rings were falling off! I went of spaghetti bolognese or anything tomato-y, I found it all tasted of salt! So strange what hormones do to you!

    Congrats on your little girl! She'll e here before you know it! xx

    1. Oh that is odd! Its weird how people have different sorts of cravings or go off food. My mum was the same and she couldnt stand tea! Weird :/

      It'll soon be here and she'll be making an appearance in no time i guess!!


  7. Aww congratulations! :)
    You're due the day before my birthday!

    1. Aww :) Its my dads birthday on the 24th ... He really wants her to arrive then!! haha
