Such a great time celebrating our little ones’ christening this weekend. Love these ladies so much, the 9 of us (I haven’t lost the ability to count, 2 live abroad so couldn’t make it 😢) met at uni so have now been friends coming up to 17 years! Holy shit that makes me feel old! Turns out along with a lot of 💕 there’s also a strong appreciation for dark florals among us! On another note this dress I’m wearing is from @monsoon and is made from a lovely heavy stretchy fabric which would be great with a bump .

Christening cake of dreams from @itsnotjustcake So lovely to celebrate with so many of our friends and family! 😍😍 Thank you to @stbartsbrewery for having us and helping to make it such a special day for everyone there, including the kids who were so well taken care of!

Back in jeans, secretly thrilled 😁. This @zara shirt is old but served me well through pregnancy and still going strong!! #stripes #mumdresscode #happyfriday #thebumpedit

Ropey mirror selfie for #whatmamaworemonday for @heyitsromeca and @rachelthehat ! Loving this @hm floral skirt in the heat. Finding a neutral bra you can #breastfeed in and wear under a strappy top is not easy! Top is @topshop_maternity 😍

1st run of the second week of #couchto5k done!! I had all my excuses lined up (presumably you’ve seen the rain?!) and then I saw @candicebrathwaite post about completing the program and that was it, trainers were on. It’s not easy but I am loving the head space it’s giving me. I feel like I haven’t actually listened to music without it being accompanied by a child in an eternity! So glad I’ve taken it on! Now off to undo it all with a Sunday pastry. Apologies for the bra pic, I’m sharing because @hm do nursing sports bras and I’ve been wearing mine for a while now for low impact stuff like Pilates so couldn’t really test it but now I’ve worn it running I’m happy to report it’s really good! And all the others on the market are soooo pricey so it’s nice to find one under £20. I don’t have huge boobs though and wearing the large contains everything but if you have a much bigger bust they might not be for you for high impact stuff, worth a look though, and they have a selection even. Well done to them for finally recognising the gap in the market. .

Beautiful lilies and sun streaming in 😃. Anyone else buy themselves flowers for a bit of a lift? Nope, just me? 😬

I’ve been feeling terribly guilty lately about not spending enough time with this fella. He loves his sister but I think we were both starting to feel the absence of any proper time spent just the two of us. I’d been thinking about this a lot and then saw @mother_of_daughters post last night about “love bombing” and it gave me the nudge I needed. So today we took advantage of the husband working from home and while the baby slept we went on a mini adventure. Nothing crazy, but we went to feed the ducks, the park and pretended to be aeroplanes before standing in this spot watching the trains go by. It felt so good, and honestly the mum guilt has lessened by about a million, though it never goes completely! It’s not always easy to do, but I’ll def be trying to carve out some time each week going forward just for me and him! 😍 Outfit is all old owing to #nospendjuly and it being hotter than the sun and not having much cool enough. Top is @primark from last year, but they have the same shape in different prints this season. I wore it in early pregnancy and it was perfect, just floaty and long enough to accommodate a little bump. Skirt @seraphinematernity Shoes trusty @havaianaseurope .

Had the best few days with family and friends celebrating this chap turning 3. Proof of how hectic and fun it’s been is that the only outfit pic I have is with a giant gorilla 🦍 Everything is oldish as SMP is leaving things seriously tight so I’m going for a no spend July but tap pic for outfit credits #whatmamaworemonday for @heyitsromeca and @rachelthehat .

I know no one will see this owing to a certain sporting event but given how rough I look that’s probably a good thing. This is from 3 years ago almost to the hour. This was our post-epidural selfie, inspired by a friend of mine who documented the same moment. I got in trouble with my midwife during labour for saying I’d “cheated” by having an epidural. Only by going through a second birth can I see how wrong I was. It was such a tough birth, despite having pain relief. My daughters’ birth was so much calmer thanks to Hypnobirthing (shout out to @mamacan.hypnobirthing for giving us the tools), and maybe just a bit of knowing what was coming. I consider both my births positive despite their challenges, and this face is one of a woman for whom calm and some semblance of control had been restored. At that moment I desperately needed that. Looking forward to celebrating our little man’s arrival tomorrow and in to the weekend. Still can’t quite believe it’s 3 years ago. Time really does fly and all that... .

There’s been a lot on my feed this week about “bounce back” - disclaimer this isn’t about that. I hate the pressure on new mums to get their “pre-baby body” back, and abhor d-list celebrities pushing diet programs on vulnerable knackered mums to make money. After 6 months though I am finally starting to think seriously about getting fitter and healthier again. The main thing for me is doing it safely and carefully, so I did a session with @parkmumpersonaltraining who put me through my paces but in a way which accounted for the amazing things my body has done having my babies. I really enjoyed it, and felt like I’d worked bloody hard at the end of it! Read about it over on the blog, especially if you’re a north London mum thinking about getting back in to the exercise and want some support and motivation!!! 😘 .

#fbf to this #sparkly bag of dreams! I thought about a bag for the wedding I went to a few weeks back very late in the day and the lovely Kate at @petitdunnocks very kindly rushed through my order so I had this in time. I am so happy with it and so many people commented on it! Not only did it look fabulous, it was also roomy enough to hold all the essentials and I even managed to squeeze in a pair of flats for the evening in case my feet couldn’t take the heels any longer. That right there is the definition of the perfect clutch bag for me, and makes it just the thing if you’re pregnant and need to have a back up to save your feet. .
