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.
