30 Weeks Pregnant.. CHIT CHAT!

The baby now measures approx 39cm and weighs 1.3kg. I feel her movements getting stronger each day! There are 69 more days to go, here are a few photos from today...


I love my bump! It's amazing that in 6 weeks I will be full term and I will be that much closer to holding my precious little angel. :)


The days are getting closer and I still feel like I have so much to do. The past week I have been going totally bananas with options for cot bedding. Yesterday, I picked up some fabric samples from 'Cloth House' thinking that I may perhaps design and make my own. But, to be honest I would rather find a gorgeous ready made one from the shops and save myself time.


I showed you the fabric letters I picked up from Mamas & Papas a while back, and want to pick out the creamy colours for the bedding and have accents of brighter colours in the accessories.



I also picked up this chicken shaped pillow from the same range (Made with love) at Mama's & Papa's, it's just so cute!


I have these postcards that I purchased from Paperchase when I was only roughly 8 weeks into my pregnancy, I thought IF I have a girl they will look perfect in frames on the wall. The illustrations are so adorable...




Back to bedding, I really do like this quilt from Mama's & Papa's but it doesn't fit the Ikea cot that I want, I may buy the bigger option and cut it down, ahh so confused! My dad also said he might have one made for me in Turkey, so I'm just waiting for confirmation and then I have to REALLY decide.


I started crocheting some flowers, I might make a pillow, or even a cot mobile, a headband or decorations for something else out of them.


I saw this blanket on the Internet whilst browsing and fell in love, I'm going to have to ask my mum or her friend to make it for me, isn't it beautiful! I would make it myself but I would take forever, I need a pro! :)



Lastly here are a couple of inspirational tranquil nursery photographs. I wonder what my little corner of the bedroom will look like, it's proving difficult but not impossible to have the nursery in our bedroom. Don't worry I will show you pictures once it's finished. I can't wait to see what it will end up as myself! :)


I love the little details in both of these photos, isn't the nappy stacker so cute!


Enjoy your weekend, if you have any tips on saving money and space, and even nice places to buy baby bedding PLEASE leave me a comment! :)

Lots of love from me and baby bubbles! x X x

JC ♔ said...

You look very beautiful and happy. Also, love the top and all the adorable home made accents you have. Very cute and crafty!

Keeley Laura said...

instead of getting the bigger size and cutting it, hem it on the sewing machine instead, will leave a much cleaner finish and you wont risk ruining it by cutting it :) x

Computergirl said...

Aww, you look so healthy. When I had a bit less £ and my friends had a baby, I found loads of new (sealed) baby items in the local charity shop. They were in the window, so it was meant to be! I love the flowers, so cute.

You could make something like this http://www.taggies.com/cgi-bin/estore/show_entry?index=144 but without the animal design- the ribbons are supposed to provide different colours/textures for the baby :)

Not long to go! Eeep! xx

Muhsine said...

Jo said...

The best bit of advice I can give to a new mum is to invest in growbags!

If only these were around 10 years ago when I had my first child. The website explains all about them.

Amy said...

You look amazing, so glowing! :) xxx

sikenthreads said...

you look radiant! congratulations!!!

Andrea said...

Don't worry too much about fancy cot bedding - i can highly recommend grobags for baby to sleep in. They help little fidgits and stop the kicking off of bedding and getting cold that can often break a good night's sleep. Just get some pretty fitted sheets and a couple of grobags and you're sorted xxx

Love all the little bits you've picked up - such beautiful fabric.

I think you'd find gorgeous bedding in the style you're looking for at Pottery Barn...if they don't ship to the UK, people are always selling NWT ones (unopened in their packages) on eBay.

For local options: Mothercare also had lovely bedding - as does Jojo Maman et Bebe.

Congratulations and hope you have a wonderful and fun future with your new addition to your family!

Congrats! Pregnancy is treating you great! Enjoy your pregnancy, you will miss it once your babygirl gets here! Do you plan on doing a 3D ultrasound? They are so cool! I did one for my little girl :)

Enjoy, time flies and she will be here soon!

You look beautiful hon, pregnancy most definitely suits you :)

I'd say don't buy a changing table, it's OK for the start, and Jamie actually loved his, but by 9 months ish, they outgrow it, and it's kinda a waste of space. Get one that has drawers or something underneath perhaps?

Nappy stackers are a great idea, and a much prettier but practical way of storing nappies, I love ours.

You'll want somewhere out of reach to store baby lotions and potions etc, so shelves with baskets are fab, and I love the second picture that has the hooks on, perfect space saving idea.

Try and think to when the baby is older than 6/9 months, there are so many 'new baby' things that simply don't get used for long enough.

I think I said to you on Twitter as well to bypass a Moses basket unless you REALLY want one, a cot next to your bed will be fine :)

I can't wait to see snaps of the nursery corner :) xxx

MediterraneanX said...

I love the idea of knitting the blanket...my nana knit me a blanket when I was a baby - she spent hours and hours on it and I still have it now (aged 22!). Unfortunately she died when I was 2 but I still sleep with the blanket under my bed sheet at night so she's always in my thoughts!

Ruth said...

It is so exciting when you are expecting a baby. There is so much to do and it is life changing if it is your first baby. Your nursery ideas are looking really nice and I look forward to seeing the finished room. It won't be long now and you will have your new little one. I love the crochet blanket you found.
