Little dates with Boyfriend to Edinburgh, and a picnic in Princes St Gardens.
Shopping for big ticket baby items – there is now a pram/push-chair winging it’s way to us as we speak.
Walks in the sunshine on my lunchbreak round the Grange (super fancy area of Edinburgh), looking at the big old houses and pretty gardens.
The little baby a kick kick kicking in my belly.
Some of your baby name suggestions in response to this post!
Making detours so I can buy strawberry coconut Di Rollo ice-cream on my way home from work.
Lunch dates with a pregnant friend (due a couple of weeks before me), not stopping for air as we discussed all things baby, and our fears and things we’re learning about babies and being pregnant.
Thunder and lightning storms when I’m snuggled up cosy at home.
I Didn't Like...
Smokers on the streets of Edinburgh. I don’t want to breathe in your smoke, so please be a bit more considerate and don’t smoke whilst walking down the street.
My only pair of jeans refusing to fit me any more.
Underestimating how quickly my body would grow. A few months ago I bought a beautiful dress (reduced by over £100 in the sale) in two sizes bigger than I would normally wear, for a wedding that I’m going to be attending in September. It was pretty big on me at the time and I was convinced I’d still be able to fit into it come September, and felt pretty smug about being so organised. Alas, I tried it on the other day and my poor girls were struggling to fit in it. Come September it’s definitely going to be a no go, unless I want to take someone’s eye out!
