This week’s #BlogBumpClub is very much the holiday edition. As I write this, I’m sitting on the verandah of our mobile home, under blue Cornish skies, planning a trip to the beach later and – quite possibly – a dip in the pool. We’re staying at Trevella Park in Crantock, near Newquay, and it’s a haven of relaxation for a pregnant woman constantly needing to dip her puffy feet in cool water.
I’ll admit, before coming away, I was a bit dubious about whether I’d be able to properly enjoy a holiday while 32 weeks pregnant. My holiday staples (cold gin and tonic or a white wine) were out, plus the thought of lumbering around with a big old bump and not sleeping properly at night kind of made me wonder if it was worth the effort.
I’m glad I ignored my doubts though, because we’re having a wonderful time. Non-alcoholic beer may not be as good as the real thing, but it’s helping to keep me happy come 6pm, when the crisps and the book come out…
It’s been brilliant to spend some quality time with the (self-proclaimed) Northern Love Machine and Frog, before things get hectic as we decorate the baby’s room and I rush to meet my work deadlines before maternity leave starts – not to mention my four year old starting school next month. We never had a “babymoon” before Frog was born, but I’m starting to see the attraction of one now. Although we’re really looking forward to our new addition to the family, it’s lovely to relax as just the three of us for a little bit longer.
We’ve got a couple more little trips away planned for later this month too – including a wedding in Worcestershire (I finally sorted my outfit out – choosing something to wear to a wedding when I’ll be eight months pregnant was no mean feat!).
And then it’s head down, nesting mayhem and busy times preparing for the new baby. I must admit, it’s all starting to feel rather exciting now.
Finally, a HUGE congratulations to Jenny at Edspire who has welcomed her Rainbow Baby into the world. Another #BlogBumpClub baby!

I’m definitely jealous of the pool – that looks just blissful! And you look like you’re blooming in all the wonderful ways; having a little holiday is clearly a very good idea, especially with the beer and the crisps!
