It’s been a long time since my last pregnancy update. Life is busy with an energetic toddler, which leaves little time to do much else. This pregnancy has flown by and I still can’t quite believe that I’ll be giving birth soon. I’ve slowly been adding to the nursery, I love sitting in there and looking at all the beautiful items we’ve collected for our baby girl. We just need to decided on paint colours and then it will be ready for her.
We have most baby items that we need from when Henry was little, but I’m still on the lookout for a co-sleeper, rather than use a moses basket again. I had my heart set on a Snuzpod, but they’re not sold in the US, and it would cost too much to ship one over here and pay customs, so my second choice will probably be the Halo Bassinest Swivel Sleeper. I want our little one really close so I can see, hear and touch her during the night, hopefully easing those anxieties that come with a tiny newborn.
We recently returned from our holiday at the Outer Banks in North Carolina. It was so tranquil and beautiful there, the perfect babymoon. It was lovely to be able to have a holiday whilst pregnant. I would never risk flying while pregnant due to my history or preterm premature rupture of membranes, so to be able to take just a 3 and a half hour drive to somewhere so serene was ideal. We took the opportunity to have a family maternity shoot on the beach whilst we were there, which I’ll be posting more of soon!
