So Near and Yet So Far

So Near and Yet So Far

If pregnancy starts off slow whereby each day you are desperate to see a new change in your body, then the end of pregnancy is like the turtle's part of the race. We all know slow and steady is the right approach, but I don't know too many who haven't started to feel a bit of impatience at this point... and I'm not even overdue yet! 

That's right, still another two days to go until the EDD, so how am I coping with what seems so near and yet so far.

Small Wins

Small Wins

Wow... I can't believe how close I am now! As of today, I am officially considered at term i.e. if bubs was born tomorrow, she wouldn't be a prem baby despite being 37 weeks. Anyway, to try and stop myself obsessing over when I am going to go into labour, recently I have been focussing on a positive exercise, that can be applied even when in the throes of pregnancy. 

I call it... Small wins. And as the name suggests, it's all about celebrating the little things in life! Don't worry, examples to come!

Picture Perfect

Picture Perfect

It is getting closer and closer, and as such, I am starting to knock off those items in my to-do list that have been deliberately left to the home stretch. One such item... Maternity Pics!

I got inspired very early on in the journey with some beautiful pregnancy photography shots on Pinterest and have since been planning my own. With some beautiful weather and my man behind the camera, we captured my perfect maternity shots. I hope you enjoy!

Nursery Times

Nursery Times

Well, I would like to say that during my impatient moments of third trimester I have had plenty to keep me occupied; shopping for bubs, compiling a maternity wardrobe, and perhaps the most exciting... setting up the nursery. However, and it shouldn't really be a surprise given my day job of a Project Manager, I am actually fairly well organised, having finished my shopping a couple months ago, and even having finished the nursery too.

It has ineveitably left me a lot less to occupy my antsy weekend afternoons, so instead I thought it time I share some nursery pics!

The Ins and Outs of Pregnancy

The Ins and Outs of Pregnancy

As I have now hit the third trimester (hurrah!), I have noticed myself becoming more reflective; looking back on my pregnancy to date, and comparing it to the vision, the expectations, that I have been dreaming of in my head since when I first decided I want a baby.

And whilst there is plenty that is textbook, there's been a few ins and outs of my pregnancy, that hadn't appeared in my pregnany fantasies!

The Science of Sciatica (and the Day I Cried Over a Pair of Boots)

The Science of Sciatica (and the Day I Cried Over a Pair of Boots)

The second trimester is known to be the favourite, and this certainly isn't unfounded; You've past the nausea and tiredness of first trimester, and you're yet to reach the uncomfortable and exhaustiveness of third trimester. And up until 3-4 weeks ago, I was certainly in agreement. 

Feeling wonderfully happy, surprisingly energetic, and as close to normal as one can be, I then discovered the science of sciatica. 

Exercising your Right

Exercising your Right

It's an interesting thing being pregnant. Not just for all of the drastic changes your body is going through, or conceptually trying to get your mind around the thought of actually growing a baby (still haven't quite grasped that one yet!). But moreso, because everyone has an opinion.

I'm not talking about the barrels of, what has been described to me as, unsolicited parenting advice - don't worry, I'll write on that soon - but even non-parents have plenty of unspoken (and spoken!) judgements.
