I am so late posting my seven month video diary. I recorded it in good time but a bad back and a busy life have kept me away from the computer. So I've edited it together and am getting it posted just in time to start planning the next one. This month I am talking about extra scans, freaky belly buttons and how we're prepping for Flump's arrival.
You can read a bit more about how I'm getting on over on The Essential One's blog here. With all the lowdown on sleep, changes and what I'm looking forward to. And they haven't asked me to say this... but have a look around the shop if you are expecting or know someone who is. They have some simply gorgeous new baby lines in and their maternity clothes are the comfiest things ever.
This month has seen quite a lot more bump growth, although a little more steadily than last month's thankfully or I think I'd be about ready to pop. In honesty I feel like I'm absolute full to capacity, but with two more month growing to go, I guess I'm just going to have to find some more space for this little lady to grow into.
A couple of the things for Flump that I showed off in my video deserve an extra mention. Both the serenity star and the cloud mobile were bought as part of a collaboration with Care2Save. Care2Save allow you to raise money for a charity of your choice while you shop online at registered stores, and at no extra cost to you. Simply by buying via their website they can claim commission from the retailer and 100% of it goes to charity (80% to your chosen charity and 20% to the Care2Save Charitable Trust).
Put simply, I think Care2Save's idea is genius and I will always make sure I check my online purchases via them in future. The fact that I can earn my chosen charity money, simply by buying the things I would buy online anyway is amazing. There are so many well known stores that I hope at regularly which are signed up to the scheme; ASOS, John Lewis, M&S, Etsy and Boots to name just a few. And nothing quite takes away that shopping guilt like knowing you've done a good thing for those in need when you made your purchases.
