This time next year I will be an actual Mum on Motherdays……

…. ahhhh what a crazy wonderful thought!

This morning I woke up to a lovely card from Charlie and Bump and a cute text from a friend that read ‘Happy Mothers Day to be Puffy’. We still don’t remember why we call each other ‘puffy’ its been a nickname we’ve used for each other for about ten years but actually its quite fitting for me now because I feel and look like an actual puffer fish 🐡. The difference two weeks makes is crazyyyyy. There is no hiding my bump anymore, it has officially popped. My boobs are enormous, I had to buy new bras this week. My normally round face is even more round and my fat ass is looking more kim k by the day. I have now gained one stone, which seems like quite a lot but I am growing a gorgeous little pickle in my belly and it’s amazing and so comforting feeling it moving around and kicking all the time now. Charlie even felt the kicks this week for the first time.

Time is moving so fast, I can’t believe in 9 days time I will be 24 weeks (6 MONTHS PREGGO) and I’ve only bought three baby grows. This weekend I decided that over the next few weeks I am going to start ordering furniture for the babies room. The colour scheme will be neutral because we aren’t finding out the sex of the baby. On Pinterest I’m loving the scandanavian furniture and simplicity. I found this really nice rocking chair from Ikea that’s abit Scandi style. It’s Modern and quite small compared to some of the nursing chairs on the market (most look like they belong in an old people’s home). But I’m still not sure whether to get a rocking chair or normal chair? Does a rocking chair encourage the need for movement and rocking all the time to settle the baby? I would love to hear your thoughts on this?

I am going to buy this Boori chest of drawers/ changer that I saw at the baby show. I love the design with the open shelf in the middle to put things in and the hanging rails on either side to hang muslins or blankets. I think it looks really nice but also practical. My sister and a few others have said that they never used a changing table and that you end up changing the baby on the sofa/ floor/bed or wherever you are that moment, but because we are living in a flat I think we will actually use one, it’s not like we’ll have to be going up and down stairs all the time to change the baby.

I still need to decide on lots of things, but once the main bits of furniture are in, I’ll be able to start accessorising. If you know any cute websites for nursery and interiors please share and tag me in the comments x

    I have three boys Rosie and I thoroughly recommend the stokke high chair I used them from birth with the bucket seats right through to now …my twins are 7 and only just getting to the end of using them and my 3 year old loves his. It really encourages the babies to be part of the eating ritual and involves them right from the start and gives you a chance to eat. Defo check it out. Good luck with it i am envious of the bump! Xx

      Hi Victoria, thanks for taking time to read my blog! that’s so helpful to know thank you, I will definitely take a look at them. Would I need one from the very beginning? Or what age would they start using the high chair? xx

    It’s the stokke Tripp trapp high chair I used it from the start with the newborn attachment that you buy separately and it grows with the baby right up to my huge 7 year olds and beyond through various different seats. The newborn attachment was great for keeping no 3 off the floor out of harms way from the older brothers! It expensive but worth every penny. As I mentioned it also gets the baby involved in the eating process right from the start and you can keep an eye on the baby whilst eating at the table as it’s high up. Another good piece of kit I had was the baby Bjorn bouncers for the twins …space was limited so it was great to be able to fold the bouncers down easily when not in use. There is loads of stuff you can buy but they need very little really. We did love the Tripp trap so much we bought one for all three boys and bought one for my nephew whose mum equally loves it! X

      Hey, Victoria! Thank you so much for all the info, I am definitely going to go and look at the Stoke Tripp Trap in store, it’s so good to get recommendations and you obviously love it! We are also limited on space so I want to be sensible and practical with what I buy xx
