Me, Being Mummy: Pregnancy #2 Week 25

Forgive the lack of makeup and hair in the video! Do not adjust your settings or freak out, I just didn’t see the point in exerting precious energy on doing makeup and hair in order to drive and collect my mother (aka designated baby sitter for the evening) when I was due to be doing it properly in 3 hours time (neither did I dress BB in proper clothes as I elude to in the video… I put his jacket, socks and shoes on with his PJ’s…. such a rebel, I know!).

All this fuss, preserving of energy and general cutting of corners was all in aid of the momentous fact that myself and PB actually managed to go out for the evening! We ACTUALLY got out of the house, in our glad rags and had a great night out at dinner, catching up with friends and just enjoying the freedom that comes from leaving the house without the whole responsibility of a small version of the two of you on ones shoulders.

When I say glad rags, of course I mean I myself managed to wear a dress that was clean and without food stains whilst getting away with just carrying a small handbag for the evening (that takes some getting used to… cue panic every 30 seconds I had forgotten something!) and PB managed to wear skinny jeans that cut of his blood circulation around the crotch and a waist coat that was only put on for 10 minutes before being abandoned because it smelt of wee and had mostly likely been victim of a non nappy clad toddler at some point in the recent past. Such is parental apparel these days!

It was nice to have fun and let our hair down a little, and I was really relieved that I managed to go as the day before I was hit with the most awful migraine I have had in a very long time. Good old pregnancy hormones mixed in with lack of sleep concocted a ridiculous amount of pain and nausea that prevented me from being able to function and had me sleeping off the day in a dark room with a flannel over my head!

I have also noticed stretch marks beginning to happen on bump! I’m trying hard to accept that nothing is going to keep them at bay, no matter how many lotions and potions I throw at them so all that is left to do is to embrace them, see them as a part of my body to be proud of and be grateful that I am able to have the privilege of carrying my babies into this world. I like tigers, I can certainly cope with looking like one!

Please show the love for my youtube channel and like and subscribe if you can! I upload every Friday (if life doesn’t get in the way!) and would really value the support!

    Well done you for actually getting out for an evening. Not sure I did when I was pregnant with my second 😀 I see you live in Brighton – I'm in north Wales now but lived in Brighton for a couple of years in the late '90s. Absolutely loved it (though it's probably changed a lot now!) #Dreamsandsparkle

    I think you look great! I gave up with heels a lot earlier than that – I basically wore flipflops my entire pregnancy – snow and all!! Haha #dreamandsparkle

    Ahh, thank you for saying so, I think we're always our own worst critics and see ourselves looking worse than we really appear. I think I may have to dig my flip flops out by the end of this pregnancy… I've never had small feet but they are fast becoming ridiculous! Thank you for stopping by and commenting 🙂 xx

    Haha! I really was so proud of us for making it! Spent the evening like a hyperactive puppy, I was THAT excited to be out of the house with adult company! Luckily our friends completely understood and were equally as excited to finally catch up with us. Yes I do indeed! Well, a little way outside of its borders now but not far. It's changed a lot lately, which is probably why we have moved a bit further out from its hustle and bustle… and mainly, the traffic! But it still has amazing character and its nice to dip in and out. I bet Wales is lovely!!! Such beautiful scenery! xx

    I'm all for comfort. The only times you'll see me in heels are when I'm out dancing which hasn't been for ages. #Dreamandsparkle

    I have heard that cocoa butter is meant to be really good for stretchmarks plus if you get a scented one it will make you smell amazing 🙂 #DreamandSparkle

    It's amazing how your feet become less and less inclined to be put into a pair of heels over time!lol. I love being comfortable but yeah, the idea of dancing in boots doesn't appeal! I will wear them again
    .. one day! Xx

    Ooo, thank you for the tip! I've tried oils but they've felt really slippery and greasy… cocoa butter might be a bit more up my street. Xx

    I've tried every cream and oil possible for stretchmarks! It's always good to get out when you can and just enjoy yourself 🙂 #DreamandSparkle
