Pregnancy Update | Less Than 1 Month

Monday marked the start of the 1 month countdown to my due date! I mean, how crazy is that? It honestly feels like yesterday that I was having the Gender Reveal Party and here we are, in October! I am beyond excited for her arrival. I have to admit though, I feel really positive about the imminent birth, however, I think it's only natural to be worried as well because you really are entering the unknown with labour. But I've been trying to maintain positive with my hypnobirthing techniques and reinforcing the fact that I can do this and I will!

The Lowdown: What I'm Loving

I can't believe I'm already writing another post from this new series! Where does time go?! This month has been a whirlwind, from doing the odd bit of work teaching here and there, to finishing my Master's dissertation; as well as getting ready for the arrival of our baby girl(!) I can't believe how fast time has passed us by. Needless to say, I am so, so excited for what October has to offer, and of course, with each day that passes by, Ben and I are edging closer to finally getting to meet our little bundle of love. So, you may ask, what are the things that have really captured my attention and inspired me this month? Well...

Pregnancy Update | My Birth Plan

Two weeks ago, in my series, 'Weekend Musings', I spoke about how I had an appointment with a consultant about my birth plan, whether or not I was due to be having a caesarian section. I have thought all the way through my pregnancy, when it came to this issue, that no matter the outcome of the consultant's guidance, I needed to do what was best for both me and our baby girl.

Weekend Musings

This weekend I felt as though I was a real social butterfly as I spent a lot of my time catching up with friends and family which was so lovely. I really enjoyed taking some time for myself, away from writing my Master's dissertation. However, I have to admit, I am really enjoying the whole process of this thesis and can see myself wanting to pursue researching once I have completed this Master's. I think that something I would find particularly interesting is going through the Philosophy route and writing a thesis on some of the most philosophically challenging issues: the problem of evil or the existence of God. 

Anyway, back to what I did this weekend. Let's begin, shall we?!

Pregnancy Update | Stretch Marks

Way back when I was writing my blog post for my 'Pregnancy Update | 3rd Trimester', I inserted a photo which included a rather large bottle of BioOil. I thought that it would be important, for mums-to-be reading this, or even women who have/haven't had children to talk about stretch marks. When I initially found out that I was pregnant, I worried about the possibility of getting stretch marks on obvious places over my body. I wasn't worried about what other people would think, no, I was more worried about saying goodbye to my pre-pregnancy smooth, uninterrupted skin. I know it seems completely and utterly irrational to even say that, but I think it is important to be honest about the other side of pregnancy that lots of people don't talk about.
