Belly update - 28 weeks!
Well I've officially entered the last trimester as of today. Apparently in those final 3 months I can look forward to fatigue, bloating and duck-like waddling.
At my last visit the obstetrician thought my belly measured small but she thinks it's because the little monkey is laying in transverse (horizontal) position instead of the head down/bum up way. A few weeks ago he was breech so clearly he's doing acrobatics in there. As long as he turns to the proper position when it's time to make his world debut, he can do as many cartwheels in there as he wants!
I'm enjoying doing baby nursery shopping, but I don't know what things I need and what things are gimmicky optional extras. Like for example baby monitor - will I use it? Or is it one of those things that's only needed if you have a huge house? Or a nappy dispenser - essential? Or just a normal rubbish bin will do? So any mums out there, help on nursery and baby necessities will be most appreciated!
In beauty related news, I'm still too lazy to use any type of moisturiser or oil on my expanding belly. I guess I'm lucky and haven't got a single stretchmark yet, and even if I was to get them, seriously is that such a big deal? They will eventually fade away.
As for makeup, I'm all about minimal fuss looks with maximum impact. In fact tomorrow's post will be about looking daytime glam with minimum effort so stay tuned for that...
