Now that I am 7 months pregnant, I can definitely say there are things I didn’t expect walking into this pregnancy second time round. Here I share my lessons so far:
I look back at my first pregnancy and regret ever complaining about being tired! During my first pregnancy I could sleep whenever I wanted to. I remember coming home from work exhausted and having a nap for an hour or two and then waking up to have dinner. I remember spending my weekends sleeping in and also taking a nap whenever I felt like it. Absolute bliss when I look back. Now. Well now it’s a totally different ballgame. I have a 3 year old that doesn’t understand Mummy is tired and exhausted. I have a 3 year old that still wants Mummy to get down on the floor to play with her and run around with. I don’t have the luxury to sleep after work because I have to get dinner ready for the family. Weekends is usually busy with kids birthdays, swimming and soccer. Don’t expect the downtime you enjoyed during your first pregnancy!

We recommend you measure the largest circumference of your bust when ordering tops and dresses and the widest part of your hips (just below the belly) for pants and skirts.
If you are between sizes or expecting twins please go up a size.
