Welcome to my first 'Baby Diaries' post! This is a little bit more of a diary entry compared to my normal blog posts, but I thought I might do a baby diaries series as with not too long to go know it's quite a nice way to document the changes and all the happenings that are going on!
Later this week I will turn 30 weeks pregnant. 30 has always felt like a big milestone for me. I feel like from 30 the proper count down can begin, 10 weeks to go... whoop! The last few weeks I've started to feel so much bigger every day (which was bound to happen!) Each morning I wake up thinking this bump has grown over night.
Sleeping at night is becoming far more awkward and once I wake up (usually about 3am) I'm finding it so hard to drift back off to sleep. Usually because the baby is having a little dance and I can't help but feel my tummy waiting for the next kick which is keeping my brain far too alert!
Lots of my non-maternity clothes that have fitted me through out the pregnancy (mainly shirts and tops) are all starting to get just a little too tight. I'm transferring in to the stretchy tshirts now for maximum comfort! I've been trying so hard not to go crazy on maternity wear just because I know I don't need it for very long. I've got a few staple dress, 2 pairs of jeans and some tshirts but am getting to the point where I need to get just a couple more bits to keep me going. ASOS, TOPSHOP and NEWLOOK are definitely my go to for these!
Over the last few weeks, I've finally allowed my self to start buying things. And by start... I also mean finish. I've gone a little crazy and think I almost have everything that was on my list. Nothing wrong with being prepared!
Clothes wise I wasn't sure whether to bother with newborn of just get 0-3 months... but then I decided I didn't want my little baby looking all baggy for it's arrival! So... I stocked up on newborn as I would far rather have it and not need it. I'm sure they'll get some good use anyway, and oh my goodness they are so cute and tiny! It's so strange to think our little baby is actually going to be in those clothes.
Obviously everything is neutral. I've got patterned white/grey onesies for the day time... and just plain white for bedtime. So i'm fully stocked in new born... and have a little bit of 0-3 but am really waiting until we know the gender so baby's wardrobe can get a little colour added to it! I'll definitely be doing a post on all my baby purchases so far.
The nursery is starting to take shape which is so exciting. I've had what I wanted to do with the nursery planned for SO long now. Finally each room in our house has a purpose and I pop in to the babies room most days just to admire it! A nursery tour post will definitely be coming up in the near future, so stay tuned!
I'm obsessed with anything knitted! It's not quite the right season now... but a few things are starting to come in to the shops and are SO gorgeous! Here are just a couple of little bits that I'm in love with. Obviously can't buy either of these until the baby is here! So looking forward to more winter wear coming in to the shops!
I'm sure it wont be too long until my next 'Baby Diaries' post. I feel like I have some catching up to do since only announcing with my followers a few weeks ago!
