Bumping Along


It has been such a long time since my last blog post but I'm not even going to get into the excuses because these days it feels like this is how all of my posts start off! One day, maybe when I stop having babies I promise to be more regular again. The main difference you can probably see here compared to my last outfit of the day post is that the bump is considerably bigger! I am currently 23 weeks pregnant with baby #4 and thankfully I'm feeling great. The second trimester has been kind to me and I am so grateful that these have been a relatively easy few weeks so far. Luckily our Caribbean cruise & trip to Jamaica was planned for the 20 week mark so I felt good and the nausea was pretty much gone. I even brought sea bands with me but didn't need to use them! 

The only thing I can complain about (along with most people in England I would think) is the lack of sunshine this spring. This time last year we were experiencing a heatwave, whereas here I am this April still wearing boots and needing a scarf & coat when I go out. It has been a bit depressing, especially with Eduardo's birthday party coming up this weekend. Sadly I think the Winnie the Pooh themed festivities will have to be kept indoors :( We also celebrated Alessia's 1st birthday on Easter Sunday with close family and it was so cute! I posted a lot of photos on Instagram if you're curious to see how that turned out.


So here I am rocking a bump in some autumn/winter attire because it's too cold for anything else and I'll admit I'm getting so bored of wearing the same thing over & over! The best thing about being pregnant in the spring/summer is having an excuse to live in maxi dresses and flip flops which I fully embraced whilst we were on holiday three weeks ago! Hopefully I'll be able to dig the summer wardrobe out again soon. I'm wearing a Free People top which I love but wish was a bit longer (to cover the bump), an Abercrombie & Fitch cardigan, maternity trousers in dark green from Next which are a size smaller than what I normally am (I'm going to need to switch these out soon!) and my Toms boots. I am on the hunt for a pair of khaki or army green skinnies which are maternity but don't break the bank as this is my last pregnancy...so let me know if you can recommend any!

I also filmed Alessia's 12 month baby update today which you can watch below. I attempted to take some photos of her but she moves so fast and refuses to sit still for very long so this snap Emilia took of us all in the mirror this morning is the best we got! I think she has pretty good photography skills for a five year old!

  6. I am so inspired by the way you can manage a life with three children and one on the way ("three and a half") you are such a great woman and have a lovely family. I am constantly watching the videos on all accounts whenever you post. I give all my love to you and your family.

  10. Looking great Anna! These are from the Canadian website, but I wore these green pants a lot during my pregnancy. They were great to dress up a bit for work.
