Favourite Bath & Body Products

These are my current favourite body products. They’re natural, non-toxic, gentle on your skin, and safe for use during pregnancy.

26 weeks {Pregnancy Post #5}

I’m 26 weeks and a few days as I write this, and it’s the last day of October – kind of exciting that November is so close, and I only have a few weeks left in the second trimester. Looking forward to Christmas but not looking forward to getting bigger and slower (especially in hot… Continue reading 26 weeks {Pregnancy Post #5}


22 Weeks {Pregnancy Post #4}

I had my first face-to-face appointment at the hospital earlier this week. I was reminded, again, of how much I don’t like that hospital. I like the midwives and doctors that I see for appointments. I hate everything else. I’m just glad it’s a public hospital because it would be intolerable if I had to… Continue reading 22 Weeks {Pregnancy Post #4}

I know they’re all standard questions, but you’d think they could fill in some of them using… Continue reading 20 Weeks {Pregnancy Post #3}


19 Weeks {Pregnancy Post #2}

I didn’t intend for this to become a pregnancy blog, but when you’re pregnant, there’s not much else you want to talk about…. Plus we’re entering the more exciting phase, past the dying-of-morning-sickness-and-feeling-fat stage and into the actually pregnant-looking bit with scans and regular appointments and baby kicks. (I’ve had fluttery movements for quite a… Continue reading 19 Weeks {Pregnancy Post #2}


The First Trimester {Pregnancy Post #1}

I suppose I should feel guilty about neglecting my blog for the last few months, but I don’t – not really. I felt so rubbish at the beginning of this pregnancy that I didn’t feel like doing anything except lying on the couch moaning about how sick I felt. And I was sick. Not quite… Continue reading The First Trimester {Pregnancy Post #1}
