Wow it's been so busy lately, in fact crazy busy would be the only way to describe it. I cannot believe I am 28 weeks pregnant today (Monday) eek into the third trimester I go. So I thought I would do a round up of what has been going on from 25-27 weeks.
Well with lots events and trips to London keeping me on my feet I have started to feel a little bit of an energy dip mainly due to things becoming more uncomfortable at night and finding it harder to get a good nights sleep. For the first time I have been experiencing a bad back and rib pain something I didn't really have with Mr A but then again every pregnancy is different. What I have found though that eases it the most is keeping active, I discovered this after having a down week where I thought I would take things easy and it was actually a lot worst and I realised that Mr A and I love our outdoor walks every day or swimming and adventures close to home and further afield and it seems the best idea to just keep to that routine.
I have also been lucky enough to receive two amazing pregnancy subscription boxes in the past month - the Nonabox and Project-B, both of which really put a smile on my face and contained lovely little gifts to help you through your pregnancy and beyond. Check out my little vlog about them - can't wait to see whats in next months boxes.
In the Nonabox you get around 6-9 products and costs £24.95 per month and is tailored to the stage of your pregnancy and up to two years post-birth. I really loved the full sized Aden & Anais swaddle muslin and cannot wait to use it when our new arrival is here. I also love the Cheeky Rascals Belly Belt which extended the life of your normal jeans. My other two favourite products this month was the Bennetts nappy cream - mainly because it's a long established South African brand which is nice to see as well as the Waterwipes travel pack.

The Project-B boxes run from 12 weeks of your pregnancy through to the arrival and are crammed with useful nibbles, products, samples advice and recipes for each stage of your pregnancy and costs £14 per month. My most recent box was the The Energise box for 20-24 weeks and I loved the Bear paws products as well as the Apothederm stretch mark cream which I have been using everyday. I also really loved the Teapigs samples as well as the full sized - What to Buy your Baby book which is really informative.
