this post was first published on 23/03/2014 – Just a quick note – please don’t get excited… I’m most definitely not pregnant – sharing old blog posts incase anyone missed them or they can help others at the same stage of pregnancy
So…my first ever ever ever blog post…I figured I’m just going to get stuck in & go for it… I’ve done 2 Vlogs on Youtube now but will do a little background info on me!
I’m Rebecca, I am married to Lee & have a 2.4 year old daughter called Safiyah, I am 15 weeks pregnant with our second child! I graduated from university almost 4 years ago & since then have dabbled in a few little businesses but I have mostly been a stay at home Mummy which I absolutely LOVE! My husband works away and Safiyah and I fill our days with playgroups, messy play, music classes, play dates & ‘coffee & caking’ with lots of lovely friends!
I decided I would start blogging as a little online diary of my pregnancy & beyond. I love all social media channels (some may say I’m a slight Facebook & Instagram addict) I follow lots of Bloggers/Youtubers myself & thought Hey! I can do that… so here I am giving it a go!
So…week 15. I am finally feeling tip top! Hurrayyyyyyyy for the last 10 or so weeks I have really been struggling with morning sickness (most ridiculous name ever as it is all-day-all-night-sickness for lots of people) the two types of sickness tablets didn’t work and I just resorted to feeling rubbish and trying to stomach small things throughout the day. I turned 15 weeks and it was almost as though someone had flipped a switched and boom I feel great! I seem to be making up for struggling to eat the last little while as I cannot stop eating at the moment. Pickled onion monster much are my no1 go to snack! CANNOT get enough of them!
I haven’t gained any weight yet – not that I am overly concerned about weighing myself but I do like to keep track. I am sitting at 8 stone I dropped to 7 stone due to sickness so feels good to be back up to 8! I have no new stretch marks, still have a few left over from my frist pregnancy but I am on constant stretch mark watch! I have a good bump skin care regime which basically involves me covering myself in any kind of moisturiser my current favourites are ‘Earth Mama Body Butter’/ & Mum & Me stretch mark cream
I am also still wearing all non maternity clothes are making full use of my Belly Belt, I bought this for my first pregnancy and swear by it! It allowed me to wear my normal jeans for my entire pregnancy! I am getting bigger faster this time round so hopefully it will still last me the whole time! They really are a must have!
Well I think that’s pretty much all for week 15! Please check out my Youtube channel for weekly pregnancy updates, shopping hauls and general life happenings
