Every month, Bundle-O-Joy feature a pregnant mum-to-be on the blog. Our July Pregger of the Month is Shelley Belson, aged 30, who is a qualified nursery nurse, maternity nurse and Ofsted registered nanny. She also runs a website www.localnanny.co.uk where families are able to advertise for a nanny, babysitter, maternity nurse, au pair or any other childcare solution they may be looking for. And of course you can find her on Twitter @localnanny
Here’s what she had to say about her pregnancy…
How far along are you?
I am 32 weeks.
Have you got any other children or is this the first?
This will be our second baby, we have a little boy who is 3 years old and he is completely fascinated with my bump!
What are you most excited about?
Expanding our family and having all those lovely first few weeks’ moments.
What are you most nervous about?
Sleepless nights again!
Most inappropriate pregnant remark made to you?
People always seem obsessed with the size of my bump, I find it really annoying when they say thing like ‘your not very big are you?’ Would love to scream back ‘leave my bump alone’ I don’t remark on your weight/ haircut etc!!!
Have you found it difficult to stay stylish while pregnant?
I think if you can find a great pair of maternity jeans which fit well and leggings then both can be stylish life savers.
What are you most enjoying about your pregnancy?
I have really enjoyed this pregnancy, I had pregnancy diabetes with my son so was very closely monitored but it has not returned with this pregnancy so feel much more relaxed this time round.
What is your biggest gripe?
Just horrible heartburn.
Have you had any crazy cravings?
I haven’t had too many cravings but am loving ice lollies at the moment.
Did you find out what you are having? Explain why (either way)…
We found out what we are having at the 20 week scan as just really wanted to know this time but we are keeping it a surprise for everyone else.
