Obviously I feel very, very blessed to be pregnant and I am definitely enjoying feeling and seeing this baby grow but I am also looking forward to meeting him/her in the new year. I am looking forward to knowing the gender, seeing its beautiful face and introducing the baby to its siblings and getting lots of hugs day and night. I am looking forward to using all those gorgeous baby clothes and seeing a little personality develop.

It may sound a little strange but I am also excited about getting back into shape, to be honest I am finding the weight gain much harder to deal with this time than during the other pregnancies. Not that I am putting on any more weight this pregnancy but because I worked so hard losing 16kg before falling pregnant. I loved feeling confident and happy with my shape and I can’t wait to feel the same again.

For now I am proudly wearing my bump and with a bit of help from Mama Spanx I should be able to pull off some gorgeous dresses this festive season. You may have heard of Spanx before, it’s an almost magical range of body shaping products that many mums worldwide, including famous ones, swear by. In fact, the gorgeous Retro Mummy was raving about it just last week (and she was brave enough to share a photo, I think she looks amazing!). Now of course pregnant women don’t need any slimming products but sometimes we do need a bit of support, at least I know I do, which is exactly where Mama Spanx comes in.

The Mama Spanx Full Length Panty Hose is specifically designed with expecting mamas in mind: the design is comfortable and made with high quality materials, it supports, lifts and smoothes the areas that need it yet provides plenty of room and a soft waistband for your growing baby belly. If you ask me Mama Spanx is the best of both worlds, it flattens everything but your tummy! Combine these great features with a fabulous ultra-sheer look and you’ve got a real confident mama must-have.

Mama Spanx Full Length Panty Hose ($59.95) are available in nude and black and come in 4 different sizes, you can find them at selected Myer stores across Australia.

Yesterday I shared our exciting news and I am sure you know what that means: I am on the hunt for the biggest maternity and new baby essentials. I can tell you that while I left for Holland wearing my skinniest jeans ever I was unable to wrestle myself in them by the time we had to go back. I like to think that was all thanks/due to the baby but the amount of delicious Dutch food I ate probably had something to do with it too. Anyway, there is nothing more comfortable for (and more perfect for hiding) a growing baby belly than a pair of beautiful, good quality maternity tights.

When I slipped on these blue denim maternity tights by Glitter Baby I straight away noticed they fitted like a glove, they are stylish, soft and stretchy and cleverly worn with a tunic top no one would guess there is a little baby hiding under there (for now). I am really thrilled with them as they are very versatile, just team them up with a short dress, tunic, shirt or top and a pair of boots for a different stylish autumn look day-after-day.

Glitter Baby is an Australian family business, with all Glitter Baby Tights custom made by mum Kerry and daughters Cassandra and Carly. In store you’ll find a large range of styles, colours and prints for hip toddlers, girls, women and expecting mothers, there is a Glitter Baby design to suit everyone big or small. How gorgeous are these Glitter Baby Toddler Tights in blue denim with pink gingham frills at the back? My oldest daughter would love ‘tights just like mummy’.

The Glitter Baby Mummy 2 B range is specifically designed to carry you all the way through pregnancy and beyond. With a soft, stretchy panel that will adapt to suit your growing belly they are a perfect fit at all times. If you are a little more game than me you can really make a fashion statement in one of the sparkly, velvet or sequin designs, they are sure to get everyone looking at and admiring your beautiful bump!

You can view all the available Glitter Baby designs in the online catalogue and once you have made your choice you can place your order online straight away. Prices ranges from $28 (Glitter Baby Todddler Tights) to $80 (Glitter Baby Maternity Tights).
