Where has my 'lifestyle' gone?

I've noticed recently, well over the past two or so months, that I haven't done a lifestyle post in a while. Well, nothing about me and the baby anyway. All I see to do is post beauty reviews and I feel I've lost who I am. I've been very uninspired

However, last night I felt Dumpling kick for the first time and it's made me realise that I haven't documented enough of my pregnancy for myself let alone my husband who isn't here to experience this with me.

I feel like I have more of my mojo back and can blog a little bit more personally about myself. 

I'm almost 20 weeks now and the husband and I hopefully find out the sex of our baby on Wednesday this week. I'm super excited as I'm a very impatient person and love everything as soon as possible. 

For the past few weeks I've noticed more and more people on my Twitter feed who are at similar gestation to myself feel their baby kick. I never knew how jealous I felt about not feeling proper kicks until last week when it got me really kicked down to tears. I knew it would happen some time soon but as I am me, wanted it sooner rather than later.

Last night's experience was something I would never forget. Having just said to my mum the day before "how do pregnant women know when their baby kicks?", trust me, you just know! It started with a butterfly feeling which really shocked me, followed by lots of little movements and kicks. I'm presuming Dumpling was having a move about rather than actually beating me up, but still it brought me to tears! 

I can't wait for the husband to come home, and for him to see how big I am and for our next scan. It's been 8 weeks since I last saw him for our 12 week scan and we've come on in leaps and bounds since then! 

I think I'm finally finding my happy place.


  1. yay! this is lovely, I'm glad you are feeling good and taking a good kicking from little dumpling!
