Pregnancy diary - 24 Weeks - Baby No.7 plus a fantastic *GIVEAWAY*

Well here I am at 24 weeks already!  I'm feeling comfortable and well, happy and content.  It's not just my bump and the love for my baby that's growing by the day but also my bottom!  Eat your heart out Kim Kardashian and J Lo!  I know most women expect to be purchasing bigger bras during pregnancy but who knew you might go up a knickers size as well?!



The main reason I started both blogging and vlogging was because I thought it would be so fantastic to keep a record of my family growing up, it's something my children will be able to look back on too.  When my children reach the age when they themselves will be having babies they can look at my blogs and vlogs and see where we are similar and also how we differ.

Another reason for my blogging and vlogging is to be able to share my experiences with others, to let people see how a big family lives.  I also like to  share things that perhaps others are not comfortable talking about, just to reassure people with similar issues that they're not on their own.  On numerous occassions I have spoken about bleeding during pregnancy, multiple miscarriages, talipes and so on, I know I'm not the only one and I know I've brought some comfort to people going through these difficult times.



Of course it's so great to be able to share all the positive things in my life too.  I've been sharing my pregnancies, my children's development, our home schooling journey and lots, lots more.  Now I am so pleased to be able to offer my lovely readers a beautiful journal so you can record all the details about your pregnancy.  This Bump to Birthday will truly make a wonderful keepsake, something to treasure.

If you would like to be in with a chance of winning a Bump to Birthday journal then simply enter below.

  1. Get plenty of exercise. I attended yoga classes once a week and took a walk everyday when I was pregnant. I found it helped to reduce stress.

    1. Yeah, very good advice. I get very nervous about the impending labour but exercise definitely helps to relieve some of that stress. I really enjoyed going to pilates classes with my previous pregnancy but unfortunately my husband's work hours have changed so I haven't got anybody to be here with the children this time.

  2. there is a great yoga class on the fitness channel on sky and if you find it hard to get out its only on for 20 mins so its good for a little relax and a bit of exercise

  3. Take each day as it comes. I am 16 weeks pregnant after 4 miscarriages so I am trying to just enjoy each day without worrying too much.

    1. Congratulations!
      The first trimester is so difficult to get through after you've had miscarriages, after that though it's a bit more relaxed but I think you're right about taking one day at a time. x

  5. Exercise - it's important for your general health and also can help reduce stress. Take a pregnancy exercise class or walk at least fifteen to twenty minutes every day at a moderate pace.

    1. Good advice. Of course if you're already a mum to other small children you'll be running round all day anyway! ;)

  8. Don't get bogged down with "too much" advice from all angles (some contradicting others!). Just live healthily and let nature take it's course. Humans have been having babies for 1000's of years, don't stress and enjoy.
