Since getting pregnant I’ve learnt so much about the human body. There is so much that pregnant women don’t tell you, or maybe its just because I was the first out of my friends to get pregnant. Anyway google was my best friend but can also be a dangerous place when you’re trying to figure out if your symptoms are normal.
So many bodily fluids! I started getting nose bleeds which is apparently normal. My teeth and gums became more sensitive- make sure to see your dentist before and while pregnant. And of course extra fluid down there- liners will be your best friend.

Here’s some of my favourite outfits throughout my pregnancy.
Fitted Skirt and T-shirt Tied Up
The skirt is a no name, but I also picked up a plain black cotton skirt from ASOS Maternity. Great to keep the bottoms neutral and mix up the outfits with different t-shirts.
