*This post is soo late, I just discovered it in my drafts folder and thought I'd post it anyway. Funny how things turn out. Kim Kardashian had her baby 5 weeks early, my beautiful baby arrived 5 days early and the Royal baby has just made an appearance.* May 2013 - So it's Kim, Kate and me! I realise that although I 'fessed up in my last BelleNoirBaby post I didn't actually give any indication to how far gone I am or when I am due. I am part of the July club which seems to be weirdly populated my two extremes of celebrity. Kate and Wills on one end of the spectrum and Kim and Kanye aka Kimye on the other.
For those of you who can't be arsed to do the maths but are interested, I am now 32 weeks gone, and so on the home straight - eeek. So far so good, having felt really sick, nauseas and tired in the beginning, the 2nd trimester treated me well and I felt fine. Now that I am in the 3rd trimester I'm starting to get more niggles, rib ache along with insomnia coupled with tiredness. But I'm not complaining as it really isn't too bad and overall I'm feeling ok. I'm making sure to take it easy, so lots of naps on the weekends, early nights, good food and minimising stress where possible.
Once we started sharing the news it was so lovely to see how happy it made not only us but those closest to us. You really start to realise that there are so many people rooting for you. Our family and closest friends have been amazing and their excitement and genuine happiness for us is humbling.
I held off on buying any baby related items until about a week ago and now I am on a roll. I'm a girl who loves to shop so I'll be sharing some of my fave buys in future posts. In the meantime, check out my 'Dressing the bump' Pinterest board.
