Hi guys, if you follow me on instagram, you’ll already know the big news, if not, SURPRISE! As of today, I am 17 and a half weeks pregnant. You might be wondering why I’ve waited so long to announce the news? Like most pregnant women I was bursting with excitement and dying to share as soon as I found out and when I got over the magical 12 week stage I wanted to shout it from the roof tops BUT I wasn’t sure, I’m still not sure, how much of this I want in the public domain. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’m actually quite a private person – I know, it’s the ultimate blogger contradiction but I’ve never been a tour around my knicker drawer, what’s in my belly kinda blogger. I don’t tend to share a whole lot about me and my personal life, it’s just the way I’ve always been. I admire those that do, but me, I think I'm too self conscious.
I will keep you updated along the way, as things grow I might share the odd “bumpy” and I can’t promise not to share some oh-so-cute-and-tiny baby clothes but I won’t be doing those weekly/monthly pregnancy updates. Who cares if my belly button is in or out or if I can still wear my rings? If they’re your thing, great, but they’re not mine. If you're going through the same thing at the same time, I think it is interesting, but for the rest of my readers it's like bore! I’ve also got no plans of turning this into a mummy blog (that’s what they all say), but seriously there’s plenty of great ones out there already and I’ve loved and lost many a favourite blog that way. There'll be changes ahead for sure, but the focus will always be beauty. I’m sure if you’re interested I may well throw in the odd stretch-mark oil review or look at these cute baby sneakers post, other than that, I’m still working it out.
For now I can tell you that I’m due late June. I’m not planning to find out the baby’s sex, although I’m totally gutted to be missing out on all the half price sale stuff and I’m feeling really well. I'm completely thrilled and very blessed.
I want to say a massive thank you for all of the likes and lovely messages we’ve had on social media. Dean (that’s the fiancé, yep I kept that quite quiet too) sat on Sunday night reading each one and we were totally overwhelmed. It really does mean a lot to me so thank you for your support.
Lots of love from this slightly bashful, definitely hormonal, kinda awkward beauty blogger x
