If I had a penny for…

The internet is already a maze when it comes to pregnancy advice as well as a wealth of apps that you can use to track your pregnancy. Many of them advice you on how your baby may be progressing and compare the size/weight of your child to strange fruits that you may have never heard of! lol!

As well as having all of these online resources, there are also lots of people who will give you advice, many of which has been invaluable to me, especially as a first time mum, your a sponge in this new experience and want to naturally take everything in and do the very best for both yourself and your baby.

Every pregnancy is very different as I have found mine has been. What has worked for me hasn’t been always what others have suggested but what feels right for me at the right time. If I had a penny for every time I was given ‘expert’ advice, I’d be a rich girl lol.

The suggestion of keeping fit was one that I had read online but I had no energy or desire to until my third trimester and that was the point that I needed it the most to help me overcome lower back pain. This is the workout routine I have been doing consistently 3 times a week and its made me feel great, I have had so much more energy. Anna Saccone has workouts for each trimester as well as lots of other videos on other baby related topics too- check her out! There are lots of pregnancy workout videos online so have a look and pick the ones you enjoy doing.

As I’m now at the very end of my pregnancy I have learned so much about my body and all of the amazing things it can do when incubating and growing another human! I’m now preparing my mind and body for labour as well as ensuring that our home is ready for a third person! To be honest we were ready about 2 months ago but being super organised I cant help but double check everything! help!

What has been some of the advice that you’ve been given that you have found really really useful and some that you’ve found not so useful? I’d love to know 🙂 Email me fuschiasequins@gmail.com

Here it goes

I have been toying with the idea and honestly just procrastinating as to whether I wanted to take my blog down this route. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll be aware that I recently revealed some exciting news that my husband and I are expecting our first child! 🙂

In my efforts to strictly keep my blog and other social media platforms strictly fashion, beauty and lifestyle I didn’t really want to steer my writings down this new path. However I figured that my blog should be a true reflection of who I am and in order for me to really post relevant topics, these should derive from my life as it is now.

My beauty posts have been the most popular reads on my blog but I hope that as I now take a slightly new route with my blog, you’ll still find my posts interesting and informative.

As always a big thank you to all my readers all over the world who read my blog and have found it useful in one way or another.

If you aren’t already follow my Instagram page @fuchsia__sequins for lots of new posts!

In the mean time new posts coming right up on the blog!! 😀
