Maternity Meg | An Introduction


Maternity Meg Header

Hello! I’m Beth’s sister Meg, and Beth is giving me space on her blog to share with you my pregnancy journey. I have thought about setting up my own blog, but I’m not sure I’ll manage to keep it up, and this way I can make Beth help me.

I’m 14 weeks pregnant, last week I had my first appointment with the midwife and was able to hear the baby’s heartbeat. Luckily my mum came with me and insisted they had a listen, she used to be a midwife and had put me at around 12 weeks, and knew that if we could hear the heartbeat then I had to be around 12 weeks.

I had my first scan yesterday, and my mum said you can already see the family nose. I will admit that from one angle the profile made baby look like a dog! It was lovely to see baby moving around.

Nemo's First Scan

I am currently calling the baby Nemo as I don’t want to be calling baby ‘it’ all of the time, plus Finding Nemo is one of my favourite films! I spent ages trying to find a name I could use which wasn’t too common like bump but also didn’t favour one gender over the other. My mum commented that the baby is swimming around inside me which helped me to pick Nemo out of the shortlist of names we had.

I am hoping to share with you the clothes I wear throughout my pregnancy, being young I want to ensure I’m as fashionable as I can be. I will also be sharing with you the home pregnancy workouts I do, as I’m very keen on fitness and don’t want to let this slide while being pregnant. I have been doing a lot of online window shopping for items Nemo needs and the ones I want for Nemo so expect to see wishlists sharing these with you. I am hoping to start buying items soon, as I want to be prepared for when Nemo arrives.
