This day last year, I took the plunge and wrote my very first blog post for From Day Dot. I set up my blog amidst the excitement and sheer terror of finding out I was pregnant for the first time. I wanted to hear real experiences and advice, not clinical instructions based on a ‘normal’ pregnancy, but this didn’t seem to exist due to most people wanting to keep their secret for the first 12 weeks and not broadcast it over the Internet. Understandable.
Since starting From Day Dot and setting out on my mission to jump head first into the stylish side of pregnancy, I’ve come across so many small businesses and beautiful brands which make it so easy to find inspiration and ideas. Instagram is my go to place to browse, hunt for special finds and share what I’m up to (if you’re not following me, please do!) and that’s where I’ve come across the majority of these small but amazing brands.
Week 14 of pregnancy went by in the blink of an eye.
It was my first week back in work following a nice week off, and it was something of a killer. It seemed to be a week of endless problems in work, sleepless nights at home (a little work anxiety, a little unrest thanks to vivid dreams) and loads of traffic on the roads causing extra long commutes in warm and uncomfortable weather. Moan.
