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.

No one talks about gestational diabetes. Basically if you eat like crap, are overweight, or in my case genetically prone to diabetes you’re likely to get gestational diabetes. So don’t get carried away with the sweets, everything in moderation still applies.

Since getting pregnant I’ve really struggled to find my maternity style. But after a couple of months of trial and error I finally found some outfits that really worked for me and the bump. My biggest tips:

- Wear fitted clothes. When I wore loose clothes I felt I looked fat- while fitted clothes embraced the bump.
- You don’t actually have to buy maternity clothes. Most of my clothes were normal clothes just up a size or two.
- Try to avoid buying a new coat if its winter. I was able to get away with wearing my coats from last season, they just didn’t close over the bump.
Here’s some of my favourite outfits throughout my pregnancy.
Fitted Skirt and T-shirt Tied Up
