365/7 - week twenty - 7inches...and growing!

This week we had our 20-week baby scan. Both Paul and I were so excited about seeing the baby again and were keen to make sure everything was going as it should. Thankfully everything seems to be on track and the little thing is not so little anymore!

Currently sitting at 7-inches (head to rump!) the baby is growing fast... resulting in my belly growing as equally fast! I'm beginning to get used to the bump though and I thankfully look no longer just like the girl who ate all the pies and more like I'm pregnant... you could even say I'm beginning to blossom! :)

Keeping up with the 'fruit of the womb' theme and according to 'Heidi Murkoff', this week my baby is roughly around the length of an average banana!

a favourtie I had to share... josh & freya.

Have been taking lots of photos of my new niece and my nephew recently and had to share one of my favourites!

Josh kisses Freya loads... before he goes out, before he goes to play his x-box, after he comes in from football, just when he comes down the stairs...and I love the way Freya is blissfully unaware of her big brother smothering her in love and how delicate Josh is when he gives her a kiss.

Just one of my faves I had to share... x

365/7 week fourteen - fruit of the womb

Inspired by a fantastic blog that the lovely Lee (one of the first brides I ever photographed!) introduced me to and the weekly email updates I receive from the babycentre, I decided to introduce my 'bump to the blog' using what appears to be the most popular form of measuring your unborn fruit!

I've been having major dilemma's recently with my wardrobe as I start to grow out of my current clothes but I'm still not big enough to move into maternity clothes... I have a whole new appreciation for the elastic waistband!  Carolee Beckham used the fruit-o-meter to measure her bump as well as give you 'style tips' on how to dress your with your ever expanding waistline. I can tell this blog is going to come in handy in the coming months!

So according to the fruit-o-meter my tiny resident is the size of an orange. AN ORANGE!
