Still Struggling Through The Sickness & Gender Reveal | Pregnancy

Hey guys, heres a quick update while I'm stuck in bed poorly again;

I will start with the exciting news first of all. If you follow me on instagram (@drainedbeauty) you will already know this but me and Scott are expecting a little girl! I'm so excited, I love little girl clothes and as soon as we found out we went shopping and got some cute little outfits from Primark. We ended up spending £100, but you get so much more for your money in Primark than anywhere else that I looked.

Five Things No One Told Me About Being Pregnant

Since being pregnant a few things have happened to me or I have experienced which I had no idea would be involved in pregnancy, I'm sure I will look back and laugh...well maybe. Anyway, read below for a few things I wish I knew before!

1. The internet likes to scare you into an anxious pool of worry

As most mum-to-be's would, I liked parenting and pregnancy Facebook pages for tips, baby clothes pictures and all that positive wonderful influence to help me cope with the changes coming my way. However, I was then inundated with articles to terrify me. 'Is it safe to eat grapes when pregnant' or 'Is it safe to dye your hair when pregnant' and 'Is it safe to have a bath when pregnant'. I found myself questioning and googling everything because they feel like scaring you into basically just sitting there while pregnant, not doing anything until you pop. I would recommend always asking a doctor or your midwife for things to avoid because some of these articles made no sense and was just something they wanted to throw out there for page visits.

Blogger Problems

I'm feeling very down about blogging lately. I love blogging so much, the experiences and amazing stuff it brings but I hate the hassle of having to declare the bit of income I get from it. I never know if I'm doing it right, what I need to save or note down, it's mental. I really believe this is the sort of stuff they should teach you in school. Being self employed and self made as it were is becoming a more and more popular lifestyle choice. People want to take there life in their own hands and make it what they can. Achieve their goals, dreams and look forward to Monday morning because they enjoy what they do.

Five Things To Do On Sunday

Sundays are most peoples favourite days. It's a day of rest, relaxation and preparation for the week ahead. I'm really trying to cut down on stress at the moment and one of the things that stress me out more than anything else is work. I find that you can really make your upcoming week easier and more peaceful by opting to do these things to prepare.


Lazy Day Wear Wishlist*

One thing I've noticed since being pregnant that now more than ever comfort is key. I am loving the look of the Luxury Women's Nightwear from David Nieper. This is my current wish list from that site.

These Slippers are really on trend at the moment, I see so many people with them and they are perfect for the warmer months coming up.

Where I've Been & Exciting News

Hey everyone, this post will let you guys know why I've been MIA. It's such an exciting new chapter in my life and I can't wait to start it and document it all on here and on YouTube. I've been quite ill with whats been going on with me and had zero energy to do anything which is why my blog and channel ended up taking the hit as I still need to go to work and pay the bills!

So as you can probably guess from the picture above, I'm PREGNANT! Although I've been ill with it, I'm still over the moon and can't wait to meet this little person I'm growing inside. I will be blogging and putting things on my YouTube channel in relation to this, so keep an eye out. I know I've been all over the place with posting but I've been so poorly. I've suffered from Pregnancy hyperemesis and also as I'm typing this I am just getting over a nasty virus which has left me in bed for the last week. Unfortunately I've just passed this onto Scott as well, sorry Scott!

Sunday Summary #20

Sunday again, they are my favourite normally for being so relaxed and having lazy days. I mean, thats what Sundays are all about right? Today has been a lot busier and stressful than I would of expected. I've been up in Cleckheaton visiting family for the last 6 days. I love visiting my family and I don't really get to see them that often so it's good spending quality time with them.

I have been travelling back today on my own for a 4 hour train journey. The first train was super easy just a quiet train, relaxed with spotify and candy crush. However, there was an issue apparently at Manchester Victoria I think something quite bad had happened with someone fell/jumped on the tracks. Not good indeed. So I had to get the tram to Manchester Piccadilly, now I've never been on a tram before it's a lot like the tube in london I think but not underground aha. The staff at the Manchester Victoria station were so so, when I asked one of them what I needed to to, the just pointed towards greggs and went go that way you need the metrolink, I had no idea what this was so I just toddled over and hoped for the best. The next guy was a lot more helpful, explained what happened and exactly what I needed to do.

Anyway I still didn't really have an idea of where I was going, got on the tram, missed my stop and then the anxiety kicked in. I thought I was going to be wondering around some city that I'd never been to before like a lost puppy trying to find it's mummy. I called the other half to calm me down and he did, such a good egg.

Thank god for technology, I managed to use google maps and also helpful people to direct me back to the correct tram line. It makes you really appreciate that people can still be approachable and help you out if you are in need. I would always try and help people if I can. Being in a strange city with no idea where you are can be quite daunting. So my lesson of the week would be to always be helpful and approachable if you can, you have no idea what people are going through.

Apart from my hectic train journey I had a really good week, spent some quality time with my family, had a Indian takeaway which I haven't had in forever! It was so nice, Although it was nice seeing the family and catching up I really missed Scott, we haven't actually been away from each other for that amount of time, it was super odd sleeping alone.

Now i'm just sitting on the last train on the way home bashing out this post so I can have date night when I get home, uninterrupted! How has your week been guys? Let me know in the comments below.
