They say even the best laid plans of mice and men can often go awry, and in this case I am the man and Baby Candy is the mice. I mean, mouse. Here was my amazing mind map I did on Sunday night detailing how I would spend my leave: Program is: Simple Minds on iPhone and for Desktop. I really like it! Yesterday, on the first day of my maternity leave and what I […]
If there is one product I have really incorporated into my daily skincare routine since carrying baby Candy, it’s stretch mark oils for the belly. In fact – Mr C applies this for me every night and it’s a chance for him to catch any wiggles or movement (baby C likes to mess about at night near the surface it seems!). There’s an arm! There’s a bum! I amazingly have not had any stretch marks […]
Good Day to you all! How are you doing? This week I am 34 weeks pregnant. Although my bump is still very neat and contained (hehe) I am definitely feeling the weight of carrying a baby candy! So I get the same tiredness and aching but none of the benefits like people offering me the seat on the bus… Anyway I have just 2 more weeks left of work so I am hoping they will […]
Aloha! Hopefully you won’t mind the mosts about pregnancy related things – I’ve found out quite a lot over the last few months and it may be useful for mums to be and also, a lot of the skincare and vitamins aren’t just for pregnant women! I’ve used a number of body oils, balms and creams over the months! I thought I’d get a lot of stretch marks as my mother and aunts all got […]
Pregnancy takes it’s toll on your legs! For me it has resulted in a lot of aching around the calves and swelling. I’ve also had pains in my foot and on the odd occasion, a pain radiating down one of my legs..and don’t get me started on the cramps! I frequently have to jump out of bed to even it out the muscle spasms. It is very very nice to get a leg up (are […]
Now that I have told you all about Baby Candy, I thought I’d do a few little reviews of the pre-natal vitamins I have taken over the last few months. Folic Acid is important during pregnancy and ideally conception too. The Midwife told me that beyond 12 weeks it was pointless to take folic acid because the baby’s nervous system and spine would already be formed by then, however I have chosen to continue to […]
When I’ve asked that question, the answer is pretty much the same each time; “Well your breasts look huge. I mean, really huge”. To which I reply, “Where have you been? They’ve always been huge”… But I digress… Can you see? No ignore my visible bra straps. There’s a Baby Candy in there!
Yah, don’t get too excited. I was looking in the baby section of Boots the other day and spotted this cute little bottle of body oil from Little Me Organics (even babies are getting in on the act) – its actually a stretch mark oil but I wanted it because I a. Loved the smell and b. It was half price! I did feel like a fraud though and tragically enough, after a large Chicken […]
