Some Very Big News

Optimized-IMG_5321 Optimized-IMG_4725


So as you can tell from the title of this post, I do indeed have some VERY big news. My husband and I are expecting our first baby this Summer, I can’t believe the time has come for me to finally tell you about it. I didn’t quite know when I’d be ready to share publicly, but to me around a month after our big 12 week scan (although we did have a few early scans prior to that but I will discuss this in my video!) always felt “right” as it gave us enough time to tell friends and extended family in person before putting it online. It’s also such a deeply personal time in your life that it’s lovely to keep it a bit of a secret. However it is now at the point where I have an unmistakable bump and I am bursting to tell you all!

Almost as soon as I peed on the stick I felt first trimester pregnancy symptoms and then developed a nasty cold so this lead to me stopping vlogmas and winding down – focussing on my health and the little life growing inside of me, pregnancy exhaustion is NO joke! I am going to upload a video this Sunday with much more detail on how I found out and who I told first etc so stay tuned for that this weekend, I’ll also reveal our little one’s gender which we’ve known for a month now! And of course I will delve into my first trimester experience and the highs and the lows. It truly changed week by week and I was grateful I was able to do some fun things towards the end of the first trimester – like going to Paris with Armani Beauty and celebrating my 27th birthday with my family as just a few weeks before I was struggling to move from my sofa and get dressed!

I wake up every morning filled with such excitement and love and feel my growing stomach (which really has grown a lot!). In fact I am also over the moon every time I pack on an extra lb and love embracing this new stage of my body. Of course it has been slightly odd seeing the figure which I’ve had my whole adult life including my flat stomach changing – at first slowly but now quite rapidly but it’s truly incredible to see! Again, my weight gain so far is something I’ll discuss more of in the video!  I love this little life growing inside of me so much and already feel so connected to them.

I have so much pregnancy content lined up that I hope you don’t mine me sharing! Expect maternity hauls/vlogs (which will also include other things!) and trimester updates. I feel like I’ve been keeping this such a secret and also not to mention I felt quite rotten for the majority of the first trimester that I’ve retreated from YouTube and writing on here so I am thrilled to be back and to share the rest of this journey and to catch you up on all that has happened so far.
