Kicks and Smiles

So on Tuesday, I had my 20 week scan at the hospital and they revealed that we are having a baby girl ^_^ which obviously I am very excited about, she will be called Lily Rose Lomas when she pops out hehe.
Straight after the scan, my mum and I couldn't resist but do a bit of shopping and we ended up buying the cutest girly clothing in the world.

I also bought Lily's pram last Friday which will be delivered by Mothercare to my mums house a few weeks before Lily is born. It's a Travel System which means that it comes with a car seat that you can attach to the pram for when the baby is newborn and still use the pram without it.
I really like the pram because its mainly black so it means buying accessories for it is alot easier, it has an adjustable handle so if my mum was pushing it she could have it lower than I would.
It also comes with a rain cover which as you should know, will come in very handy for those wet days.
I am very chuffed (happy) with my purchase as it was only £120 for all of it including free delivery to our house.

We nearly have everything we will need for when Lily is born already as my mum and auntie went a bit mad and bought mountains of clothes, nappies, bath stuff, wipes, etc and my mum also bought a baby bath and a bouncer. We got a moses basket for free and Rob and I have bought the sheets/covers for that and I got a changing bag free from Boots so we are pretty much covered the only things left to get now are a changing mat, breastfeeding tools and some more bibs.

I am really looking forward to being a mum and I know Rob will make an amazing dad, he already talks to Lily every day when he gets home from work and she's started responding to his voice by moving alot more and kicking alot when he talks.

Anyway, I am just chattering on so I will love and leave you for now but no doubt I will be nattering on about Lily in all my posts for the next few months.

Au Revoir!

Likes and Dislikes

My friend Tasha has done one of these about her pregnancy so I thought I would like to write all my likes and dislikes about being pregnant!

  • Having a big bump that looks cute
  • My boobs getting bigger haha!
  • Feeling baby move inside my tummy
  • Feeling pretty and comfortable in my own skin
  • Talking/singing and reading to my baby
  • Seeing Rob's face light up when he touches the bump
  • Stretch marks covering my belly
  • Not being able to eat peanuts or runny eggs or pate
  • Being uncomfortable when trying to sleep
  • Having to go to the loo more often, including in the middle of the night when Im trying to sleep
  • Tiredness
Im sure there are more things but I can't think right now what they are. I do love being pregnant and I love that I'm going to have a beautiful baby in 20 weeks and I'm sure I'm not the only mum to be that is scared of what the next few months will bring in fact what the next 18 years will bring!

Au Revoir!

Round bellies and Exciting news!

Hi everyone, I'm not going to apologise for being a bad blogger as I do this every post so you already know how sorry I am...
I am going to update when I feel I have something to say about my life/loves etc.

So with that in mind I would like to show you how big I am already and I'm only 17 weeks 4days pregnant.
Taken at 16 weeks (please ignore the washing pile in the kitchen)
I have been in maternity bottoms now for over a month as they're the only bottoms I seem to feel comfortable in.
I love vintage fashion but I cannot find anything cheap that still looks good from the vintage/repro world. If you have any advice please let me know!!

On another note, I had an antenatal appointment yesterday and I got to go to the hospital where I will be having my baby for the first time. I have never seen so many expectant mothers in the same room in all my life and all at different stages of their pregnancy, it was quite a sight!
The maternity wing of the hospital was lovely, all the nurses we're so helpful and talkative and everyone just seemed happy and so nice so I felt very at ease. I went with my mother in law as my husband started a new job on Monday and couldn't come along to this appointment so I thought it would be nice if his mum came as she is unbelievably excited about our baby.
We had a scan first and they confirmed my baby's final due date is the 13th August and the sonographer had a look to make sure that the baby is growing well and then she had a look to see if we could see the sex of the baby, now the sonographer isn't 100% sure and will confirm at my next scan at the end of the month but she's a girl!!!!!!
So I'm gunna have a beautiful baby girl which I am so so excited about. I'm obviously trying not to be majorly over excited because it might not be a girl but still.

So here is the latest pic of our baby girl, she yawned on the scan and it was the cutest thing I have ever seen in my life and then she started sucking her thumb, I love her so much already!
17 weeks and 3 days ^__^

After we had the scan I had some blood tests in the main part of the hospital, it was very strange...the hospital is so different from any Ive ever seen before, it looked like an airport departure lounge with the seating, shops, cafes etc and you couldn't even see where the corridors were to get to the actual wards of the hospital, I ended up having to ask directions at the help desk.

On another note, I am so glad to be back home with my mum and dad and all of our family/friends. I feel so much better knowing Ive got such a big support system for our first baby and everyone is so excited to welcome a little one into the world.
I think my mum is the most excited as she's turning the spare room into a nursery for the baby which we're hopefully going to get started very soon because I love to decorate and am very excited to do some nesting.
Anyway, I am rambling on so I'm gunna go watch some TV with my mum and talk about our plans for the nursery.

Au Revoir everyone!
