Lets Talk About Breasts - Real Talk with ThirdLove*

You know what we don't talk about enough? Boobs. Specifically, the changes breasts go through during pregnancy, breastfeeding and post-nursing. It turns out that August is National Breastfeeding Month and I just had to write a post in honour of it.

Sex During Pregnancy

I really couldn't decide whether to write this post or not because I thought it might be TMI but then something hilarious happened and then I decided I absolutely had to write this post. I'm not going to lie, I haven't actually had that much sex since finding out I was pregnant, but I feel I've had enough, with different results, to warrant this post. So, if you don't want to read about my sex life or you're my niece, please stop reading now.

What Was in my Hospital Bag?

I finally decided to start packing my hospital bag at 31 weeks pregnant, but had spent weeks beforehand reading as many blog posts as possible for ideas, and spent hours scrolling through Pinterest lists. Honestly, I felt a bit overwhelmed at the sheer amount of stuff you actually need to take!

The 10 Day De-Clutter-a-Thon

I was scrolling through Pinterest when I discovered a blog post about a 15-30 minute de-cluttering process someone was working on. I had already started doing a '10 minute tidy-up' every day by the time I found this so I thought this would be a great way to re-motivate me to get rid of some more things too! As I said in my last update, I wasn't sure what method I would use next, as I was struggling with the full 30 days of the minimalism game, so just 10 days seemed ideal!

A Life Changing Night & The Importance of Donating Blood

If you follow me on Twitter you've probably seen some cryptic tweets hinting at something I've been struggling with. Well, I've finally been able to put it into words.

5 Gifts For The Mum-To-Be*

As a Mum to Be I thought I would be showered with gifts a bit more than I was. Pregnancy is hard, both physically and mentally, and I wouldn't have said no to a gift every now and then! Maybe I'm just being selfish but I'm willing to bet there are other Mums out there that thought the same thing!

What I Do When I Don't Want To Do Anything

I regularly get days where I'm in a bit of a funk and don't want to do anything, but also don't want to do nothing. I could spend an hour plus just scrolling through social media, not even really reading any tweets and eventually getting annoyed with it all (people seem extra whiney when I'm in a mood). So, I have to find something else to do. Here's my list of things I do when I don't want to do anything.
