Dressing The Bump!

Today I have noticed that something weird has happened to my bump....

Yesterday it was higher up, squashy/flabby and soft ....

Today it has dropped a lot, "Popped" massively, is enormously round and suddenly rock solid!!


Quite literally "Dressing The Bump!"

I was very much in the mood for comfort today, so I just wore a comfy outfit!
Jumper: New Look
Leggings: Select

And I decided it was time Bean Daddy got involved in the blog so I dragged him in for some photos too! He very reluctantly agreed ,hehe!

 Tomorrow we are heading to the Baby & Toddler Show
at the Liverpool Echo Arena - I'm really looking forward to it and will be taking my camera and my little notepad with me so stay tuned for a post all about it on Monday!

If you are interested in going to a baby show, check out my blog tomorrow morning when I will be running a competition offering a reader two tickets to The Baby Show in London!


  1. Hello! Just found your blog and am now following, it's great! I miss my bump so much! The perfect excuse not to breathe in to look thinner! Look forward to reading more.

  3. you're the one that made the post on Baby&bump about your tummy dropping? :)
    Your outfit is so cute- Love the leggings.

    On my blog you asked me what a Cuban was (LOL) I'll just answer it on your blog so you can actually receive the message! A cuban is just a popular sandwich in parts of florida. It's so yummyy.

    1. Yep, that was me! :)

      Thanks!! :) Ahhh that sounds nice!


  4. Aww bless.

    I scared Nathan to death at half six this morning screaming in pain. He thought I was going into labour and it was actually cramp in my calf ;)
    I can't remember screaming out - I think I was asleep when I did it but thank god he knows sports physio as he soon got it back to normal. Phew.
