A couple of weeks ago, Bump and I with Daddy had a weekend away in London. Bump was quite busy while it was there as you can see from these photos.
In the picture above, I am wearing a fabulous Pandora maternity/breastfeeding top from City Lush Mummy. Their clothes are fantastic and make you look amazing unlike some maternity clothes on the market. I will be doing a more detailed post about them in the future and how their clothes have transformed me into a Lush Mummy!
Last week, it was my 20 week scan. I had been looking forward to this scan for a while as Bump would look more like a baby, as opposed to peanut on the first scan at 11 weeks. As you can see from the scan picture above, Bump is doing acrobatics already. It is trying to put its toe into its mouth. I love how you can see facial features. I wonder whose nose it has?
We decided not to find out the gender of Bump as we would like the surprise. We are not that fussed as long as it is happy and healthy. Everything was fine with Bump at the scan except my placenta is bit low so I need another scan at 36 weeks just to make sure it has moved. It is apparently quite common and it should move as my uterus grows with the baby but it is reassuring that they are checking.

Over the last week or so, Bump and I have been very busy. We went to London for a weekend away with Daddy (Stuart) and we went to the Prepped Cookbook Launch in Northampton. The photo below is Bump and I outside Buckingham Palace and the photo above is Bump and I with Vanessa Kimbell, the author of Prepped. The dress I am wearing in the photo above is from Lush Mummy who are a fantastic company that sell clothes that do not make pregnant women feel fat or frumpy. I absolutely love the dress. I would wear it even if I was not pregnant. It makes me feel amazing. I got lots of lovely comments about it at the launch too. I finally feel that I have got to the ‘blooming’ stage in pregnancy. I am loving it!
I will go into more detail about our London trip in another post or two soon. Bump was very busy having adventures while we were there. I cannot believe that I am nearly halfway through my pregnancy. It is going so quick. Next week, we are going to look at a nursery for Bump, have our 20 week scan done and see the midwife again. I am really looking forward to seeing and getting a new scan picture. I cannot wait to see what Bump looks like. I am also getting some movement at long last too. It feels like I am being tickled from the inside. Its an amazing feeling.
Bump and I are going to the BBC Summer Good Food Show on Saturday and we are going to watch the BTCC at Croft on Sunday too. Its my birthday on Monday as well. Another busy weekend!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend. Happy Fathers Day to all the Dad’s and Dad’s to be out there!
