What I wore … for afternoon tea at the savoy

What I wore … for afternoon tea at the savoy

Back in May, my best friend took me to afternoon tea at the Savoy.

We live at opposite ends of the country and don’t get to see each other that often. She knew that she wouldn’t be able to throw me a baby shower and so this was her treat to me.

She has been hugely supportive through all the miscarriages and is a fantastic spare mummy to Little Miss H. I know how happy she is that this pregnancy has gone well and that soon she will get to meet Little Mister H.

I am ashamed to say that after my initial excitement about having afternoon tea at the Savoy my next thought was “what am I going to wear”.

I did the maths and worked out that at that point I would be 32 weeks pregnant. I looked in my wardrobe and almost cried. I knew that none of my current maternity clothes would be suitable. (I partly blame my hormones for this overly dramatic reaction.)

When pregnancy is a struggle

When pregnancy is a struggle

It is difficult to admit that something you have yearned for desperately has been a struggle.

Ever since Little Miss H has been a few months old, I have wanted a second baby.

The miscarriages that followed just made my desperation for that child more intense. Each loss took us further away from our longed for second child. But each loss made me more determined that we needed to become a family of four.

32 weeks pregnant – Piriformis Syndrome and The Fear

First of all I have an admission to make I am not 32 weeks pregnant. I am now 33 weeks pregnant and this update is a week late. Sorry.

There are only 7 weeks until I reach my due date. I am on the final stretch. How did that happen?

The past few months seem to have passed in a blur. And now here I am thinking about my birth plan and what I need to pack in my hospital bag.

Looking after sensitive skin during pregnancy

Looking after sensitive skin during pregnancy

I have extremely sensitive skin and there have been many times when I have had an allergic reaction to a product that claimed to be hypoallergenic.

As I have got older my skin has become even more sensitive and now, in my late 30’s, I’ve developed rosacea. A skin condition that leads to a reddening of the face. It also often leads to my skin feeling sore and itchy, with nasty spots.

I am currently 32 weeks pregnant and I have been suffering with increasingly sensitive skin since the first trimester. My rosacea has also been worse and I have often gone to bed with a hot, sore and red face.
