Belly update - 16weeks

Well I am now 16 weeks pregnant and here's my first bump pic to show how I'm progressing so far.

  • Most people still can't tell I'm pregnant, they probably just think I've had a big feed! In fact it hasn't really hit home for me yet either. Maybe when I feel the baby move (soon I hope!) I'll believe it.
  • I've had a couple of scans already and all is fine thank god. My next scan is in 3 weeks time and we'll be able to find out the sex of the baby. Yeay.
  • Nausea and queasiness have almost gone, though I am still feeling more tired than usual.
  • I've put on a total of 4 kilos so far since the beginning of the pregnancy, and apart from the odd baked ricotta cheesecake I eat fairly healthy.

  • My hair and skin are slowly returning to normal. They had gone very very dry initially, but now both are getting better. 
  • A lot of people have commented on my "pregnancy glow" but I seriously think that glow is thanks to clever highlighters like Dior Amber Diamond.
  • I went through my wardrobe recently and packed away all the clothes that I knew I couldn't get into soon enough, like pencil skirts, skinny jeans, etc. 
  • Luckily I have a lot of wrap dresses in stretchy fabrics that I can get away with wearing for a while yet. I don't want to start buying maternity clothes yet as those things are expensive!
  • Oh yeah, I did buy this maternity dress off eBay for $40, but it hasn't arrived yet. It's a wrap dress and I think I'll be able to wear it again even after the baby's born. If it ends up being too big I'll just belt it or something.
Sorry about the blurry quality of the pic, I took it off ebay

Well that's all I have to update for now. If any mums or almost-mums out there have any pregnancy beauty and fashion tips to share, please do!

  7. You look great! Target has some really nice maternity clothes that are reasonably priced. I also picked up a few tops from Kmart. If you have a Big W near you the Bonds maternity clothes are great too.

    1. Thanks for the tips hun. I bought a long flowy black dress from Target which I can wear after the bub arrives, but I might also have a look at Kmart and Big W as I don't want to spend up big on a temporary wardrobe.
