My 28 Week Pregnancy Update

Hey dolls,

Can you believe I'm 28 weeks pregnant!!! I can't! Time is literally flying by so fast and I am only 2 and a half months away from being a mammy. I thought this time would go by so slow but it hasn't at all. We still have so much to do, we just bought a new car :) its so fab and huge, loads of room in the boot for a pram, we have to move into our new house and my sister is getting married soon. Before I know it baba will be here and everything will change :) I am so excited, but so nervous at the same time. So lets get into the update and whats been going on.

So what's new? I have finally started to feel like myself again these past few weeks, Ive been working loads, and going to lots of events, the little things that where such a struggle during the early months of pregnancy.  I've been finding more stylish maternity clothes and doing my hair & makeup everyday! Its the little things that make all the difference. Ive been shopping in mother care, H&M and Newlook. I found those shops have the nicest range. Its so hard to find stylish maternity clothes. Its my dream to bring out a fab range. ( Future goals) 

One thing that hasn't been too pleasant and that has only recently happened is swollen feet. I worked all weekend and by Saturday evening I no longer had ankles, it went from knee straight down to toes. It was so uncomfortable and slightly painful when standing. I got some compression socks this week (if you seen on snapchat I hope I gave you a good laugh) they are so hard to put on but i've had lots of tips from you all as to putting them on easier. I got mine from Inish Pharmacy and they are designed specifically for pregnancy. Here are the ones I got.

The last couple of weeks I have found it quiet difficult to sleep comfortably, Its hard to turn over and I just found it hard to fall asleep at night. I got a pregnancy pillow and when I arrived it shocked me at how big it was. I thought there is no way I'll be able to sleep in that. I was very wrong, it is by far the most comfortable thing I've ever tried. It gives amazing back support, bump and head support and leg support. The first night I don't think I moved once. Chris is even enjoying curling up to it at night although he is complaining it's taking up his side of the bed. This pillow was a god send and even for sitting up watching TV it is amazing. I would highly recommend it to anyone at my stage in pregnancy or if you're having trouble sleeping at night. It helps so much. Here is a link to my Pregnancy Pillow  they have plenty other styles. It can also be used for feeding baby when they come along.

That is pretty much all I have to report so far, I am feeling great but just a little uncomfortable in the heat. I've also been talking pregnacare vitamins and sticking to a healthy diet. 

Here is a link to a video I worked with C & G baby club on

  5. Strolling, yoga, pregnancy practice recordings, and swimming are all low-affect practices that might be considered by you and your specialist. Contingent upon your wellness level before pregnancy, you may begin with a mix of exercises alongside tender extending. These basic practice schedules are regularly the reason for a balanced pregnancy work out schedule. Foods that rich in niacin

  6. That U shaped pillow takes a lot of space for sure. I've been planning to buy Doomoo pregnancy pillows, but I'm also liked the pillow image you shared. What brand pillow is that?

  7. Some of the pregnancy exercises that you can do are walking, swimming, and yoga. Although, there are other forms of exercises also which can be undertaken, you should not indulge in strenuous workouts. Nj massage
