I’m aware I’ve been quiet once again but this is because I have absolutely huge news to share with you – I am pregnant! I haven’t been dressing up/making an effort apart from work because I have been suffering with morning sickness badly. Well, they call it morning sickness but it’s been hitting me all day every day. I have to say thought it will all be worth it once our little baby is here – we couldn’t be more excited!
So I guess this blog is going to take a little bit of a shift and will also be looking at how to make-do and dress for my changing body. As it stands there’s not much plus size maternity wear out there so hopefully I can still dress well and help other ladies too!
One thing I’m petrified about it the fact I’ve already been called a “high risk pregnancy” and been belittled by a doctor who I asked for help. I went to the doctors about feeling sick and not being able to eat and got a huge lecture about being overweight and told not to overeat and put excess weight on. How can I overeat when I’m finding it hard to stomach food?!
I’m around 9-10 weeks pregnant and I have my first midwives appointment next Monday which I am dreading. This is supposed to be one of the most happy and exciting times of my life and I’m worried about being fat shamed and patronized by a health care professional – yet again.
Oh well. Back to a positive – me and Adam are super super excited and our baby couldn’t be more wanted or loved. Adam has been excellent looking after me whilst I’ve been poorly and I honestly couldn’t ask for a more supportive or brilliant partner. So thanks Adam!
Any information about maternity wear, comfy undies, large cup maternity bra’s etc would all be greatly appreciated – as well as any stories about your experience with the NHS!
