Bump makes an appearance

I am so relived that we've been able to tell everyone our news this week because I have been having a hard time disguising my bump!  It's almost impossible now, unless I have a baggy top or coat on.  This being my second pregnancy, things are popping out much sooner and MY BOOBS ARE VAST!!!  They aren't small normally, but they are crazy now.

I'm struggling a lot with the comfort virsus style factor at the moment.  I need the help of pregnant fashionistas (or failing that, ASOS Maternity to take sympathy on me, sponsor my blog and offer me a few gorgeous outfits to stomp around in - beg beg!!).  Talking of ASOS, have you seen their maternity selection?  I am in serious lust.  Most places offer a few pairs of skinny jeans (standard denim blue and black) some leggings, a pair of tights, some bump bands, a couple of basic tees and maybe a dress.. that's about it!! ASOS have normal fashionable clothes but with bumps in mind! Love it...

These are on my want list:

I could go on... there are so many items of clothing I love on there.  This is the kind of maternity wear that makes me feel excited about my changing shape.  Most maternity wear makes me want to close my eyes whilst running off a cliff shouting "lalalalalalalaaaaaaaaa".  I am going to be getting at least one pair of bright maternity skinnies for sure.

Anyway, in the meantime, I'm making do with what I have.  I don't love much of the mat wear I have from last time.  Just a few pairs of skinnies and a few tees.  The rest of it mings a bit.  I'm trying to stretch normal clothing (haha) as far as I can for now...

I won't be able to for much longer though.  Thank goodness my Mum has given me my Christmas money early.  I'm broke and I need a maternity coat and a few other essentials SOON!!
