Today I'm 37 weeks and 2 days pregnant. The days seem to be dragging as the suspense to meet the little one builds up. Me and the hubby are both eagerly waiting and nothing else seems important right now apart from the safe delivery of our baby girl.
I'm doing well, and feel so blessed that I have had quite a smooth pregnancy so far. Last week I was given another scan as even though I feel and look HUGE, apparently my belly was measuring small. After the scan it was confirmed that baby was measuring fine and as should be, it's just I'm carrying small probably because my frame was quite petite to begin with. I'm still using the Neal's Yard 'Mother's balm' and I have no stretchmarks to report in case you were interested. Oh and they said it still looks like a girl! *yay* :) Not that it matters as long as the baby is healthy!
We also got our pram/stroller system which was gifted to us from my parents and grandparents. We opted for the Bugaboo Cameleon with a dark grey base and off white top/ tailored fabric set and I am in lurveee with it! :)
I was also initially considering the I candy peach but it's way too heavy and the colour choice isn't great, the Bugaboo Bee was another option but it just looks SO tiny yet it weighs the same as the Cameleon.
Onto the photos!
Here's what it looks like with the carrycot, I have all the bits and pieces and can't wait to push my little baby girl around in it. Also, in case you were wondering we opted for the Maxi Cosi 'Pebble' car seat which also attaches onto the chassis of the pram.
Me and the hubs are really happy with the colour combination choice we made, the dark grey really compliments the off white/cream colour and if in the future I want to change the off white I can just simply buy a tailored fabric pack and transform it completely. Everything is machine washable and easy to use, I did SO much research on prams so if you have any questions just ask! :)
It matches the crochet blanket I made perfectly! :)
I'm still finding things that I need, some latest purchases are this change mat that I got from 'John Lewis' and a sleeping bag I got from 'TK Maxx'.
Oh and my mum and her friend started a new blanket, here's the first piece, furthermore my mother in law also started one which I'm yet to see! :) Baby bubbles is one lucky girl who's going to have lots of pretty handmade blankets! :)
I'm praying I can meet the little one shortly, my hospital bag is near the door and ready for action! Speak Soon! x X x
