Pregnancy Update: 17-19 weeks

I will probably start every update with the words 'I can't believe I am ... weeks', haha. Honestly... It feels like I just had my dating scan, but I am 19 weeks pregnant today! Whaaaat? My bump is growing and I can feel the baby move properly at least once/twice a day. It's just amazing and just as magical as the first time, although I have less time to think about it. Also... I am absolutely terrified of labour, because I now know what to expect. I don't think it can be worse than the last time though....

Pregnancy Update: 13-15 weeks (dating scan, flu and food poisoning)

I can't believe I am almost 4 months pregnant! Just when I thought I was going to feel great for the next 6 months, me & Zachary got the flu (AGAIN!) and it was worse than ever! Apparently there are 4 different strains of flu around at the moment. Fab... I had fever for a couple of days, a bad cough, blocked sinuses and... wait for it.... conjunctivitis! Again, I caught it from Zachary, who brought it from nursery. I am sick of all the nursery germs! Grrrrrrrrrrr!!! He is going back on tomorrow, so I am worried that he will bring another disease home! It's hell!

Gousto Recipe Box Review

I love cooking and trying new dishes, so services like Gousto* are ideal for me, when I am stuck in a rut in the kitchen. You basically go to their website, pick from a selection of 10 dishes (they change weekly) and wait for all the ingredients and recipes to be delivered to your door. There are always veggie dishes available and that's the option I picked. As an ex vegetarian, I eat like a veggie 90% of the time. I love fish, seafood and chicken as well, but I am trying to get my hubby to eat more veg, so I need more veggie dishes on our menu.  The box costs £34.99 (with free delivery), but you can get £25 off your first box with my code: SANDR44172 , making it an absolute bargain.

Pregnancy Update: 13 weeks (bye, bye 1st trimester!)

I announced my pregnancy on my beauty blog over 2 weeks ago (HERE), but I will continue with the updates here. That's one of the reasons why I started M&BB, I just wanted to keep baby stuff separate, if possible. I am now officially in my 2nd trimester and I can honestly feel a massive difference in the way I feel. My nausea is gone, I am not exhausted anymore, I am not ill and I am actually feeling great! Fingers crossed it continues to go smoothly for the next 6 months.

Pancake day :)

Yum, yum, yum!  Pancake Day was good! I couldn't resist making a nice stack of yummy pancakes, layered with Nutella, bananas and strawberries. I tweaked a standard pancake recipe, by adding some ground almonds and soya milk instead of dairy.
