2 weeks and one day guys…..That’s all I’m saying. Currently sitting here writing this with the biggest mess around me. My babies nursery is a TOTAL work in progress. The baby changer is now up and the chair but this weekend I’ll get to sorting it properly. The baby changer we got on Amazon but after putting it up, it’s actually not the best of quality and I reckon we may have to change it sooner than we think but for now it’s fine. The gliding chair that we got in Tony Kealy’s for €230 is the best!!! We had seen other chairs but they were extortionate money and this one was WAY cheaper so went with this. This is put together and looks so good, that good that Sean fell asleep in it the other day. It goes perfectly this the decor and I’m delighted with it. You can buy it HERE.

Sean’s putting up the cot bed, frames and shelves so things will start to look a lot better. I put up about getting the life size giraffe and so many of you replied to me on Instagram, it was so funny. The best price I got from everyone was the one that you can buy in the shop outside Dublin Zoo and it’s €65. I think I might take a trip in there next week to get some toy ornaments for the little shelf I have too.
If you have been following me for a while, you’ll know since my last update that I’ve had my baby shower which was fabulous and I loved it. You can read about it below. And I’ve also fully packed my hospital bag too. You can read about what I packed below too.
Let me address something first, before I talk about how the last 6-7 weeks have been. If you’ve read my posts about being pregnant before, you will already know this. I want to be fully clear with everyone reading this, that I am beyond grateful and feel so so blessed to be able to have a baby. I am fully aware that people struggle day in and day out to get pregnant and have babies. I know of three couples who have struggled with this and spoken to all them personally about it. Sean and I know how lucky we are but just because I am lucky doesn’t mean I cannot hold back from how I am truly feeling. I am always honest with everything and do not want people thinking this has been an easy ride when it hasn’t. Yes it hasn’t been the world’s worst pregnancy but since Week 32 things changed for me. I am not going to pretend to everyone that I am ok when I am not. I share my daily life etc on social media and I don’t want people thinking I just breezed through pregnancy. My point is that if I am feeling down or moaning one day that’s completely normal, well so I’m told and the next day you can be totally fine. It’s a total rollercoaster and that is the only way to describe it. My rollercoaster just happens to be shared with you all.
Now that that’s all been cleared up…I’ll continue with my post 🙂 I’ve had lots of you asking about styling the bump and being pregnant. I done a really good blog post on dressing the bump a few weeks ago too. Read that HERE. I will definitely do one more on maternity style over the next week going into detail about bras and maternity leggings/jeans too. Here’s a couple of outfits I’ve worn over the past few weeks, mainly sticking to dresses for comfort and being light too. I have officially given up the jeans now as they just cause unnecessary swelling on my feet. The t-shirt I wore when I collected my buggy this week was Penneys and bought recently too guys in the maternity section. I thought it was super cute 🙂
Obviously the bigger I get bump and boobs, the more uncomfortable its becomes. I knew that it was coming and it was only a matter of time really. My bump is very large to the front along with my eyr growing boobs so naturally putting a lot of strain on my back a lot. I feel like I have to share this woman because I think she has listened to me the most this entire pregnancy. I mentioned Ingrid a while back when I first started going to see her but never did I think she would end up playing such a massive part and would have such an impact on me during my pregnancy. Ingrid Tuite has over 15 years experience, specialising in women’s health and maternity massage. She can help women through all stages of their motherhood journey before, during and after pregnancy.
