So, I’m huge now.

And yes, I’m totally just saying that to get it out of the way, so no one needs to go, “Wow, Amber, you’re huge now!” – kind of the same way I’m always the first to point out a new zit, or anything else I’m feeling insecure about, just so I can get in first, and it doesn’t become the elephant in the room or anything. (No, I’m not going to make a joke about me being the “elephant” in this scenario – I can sense you all waiting for it, though…)

Not that it ever would, mind you: I learned very early in this pregnancy that people are definitely not shy when it comes to commenting on my size, so I’ve spent the entire week being told how OMGHUGE I am, and that’s been awesome, seriously. On the plus side, though, my mother-in-law has now told me that the giant butt I’d apparently grown between weeks 17 – 19 has disappeared again, so now I just have a normal butt, but a huge belly: looks like I’ll have to cancel my plans for that Kim Kardashian-style photo shoot, then – ah, well!

Of  course, my rapidly-expanding midsection means I’m down to the last dregs of the non-maternity section  of my closet. Actually, I can still wear a lot of my old tops and knits, but this was the last skirt standing, so, aside from those stretchy dresses, which are still going strong, it’s going to be maternity wear all the way from here on out. Now, if only someone would make a t-shirt/sweater with, “STOP TELLING ME HOW GIGANTIC I AM,'”  or “ANGRY PREGNANT LADY APPROACHING,” emblazoned on the front, I’d be aaaaallll over it…

    My first thought wasn’t “huge” but “beautiful “. You have passed the is she or isn’t she phase and are well into the ooh growing a human here one. It looks a lovely little bump in the photos to me. I hope you find this a time of wonder and excitement in amongst general and specific anxieties. I used to love looking in the mirror and seeing all the changes. Hope you do too

    Super cute outfit! I have a huge problem with foot-in-mouth syndrome, so just assume the jerks commenting things like that are idiots like me. I never know what to say, but for some reason I always have to say something, and it’s usually ends up being word vomit. You look lovely 😉

    You are not huge at all, it’s all very neat looking to me. Love the grey and pink. Have a good weekend! x

    If it wasn’t for the little bump I wouldn’t even know you were pregnant! Also, you have the BEST maternity style I’ve ever seen, it’s just been one cute outfit after the next! You definitely have a Kate Middleton classy vibe going on.

    Personally, I think you look fantastic! You wear pregnancy very well! As you get closer to your due date, people will also surprise you by saying, “you don’t look like you’re due soon” (but in a kind of snarky way… so you feel like you just can’t win!) . You may also want a T-Shirt that says, “Do Not Touch”, as people are so compelled to do to a pregnant woman!

    You look rounded and beautiful and exactly how you should look!

    You look fantastic! I keep seeing you saying that people are calling you “huge” and being baffled because your bump looks really trim to me – but, then, telling people their bump ISN’T huge can be just as big a faux pas, so I never know whether or not to comment! So: your bump looks just right for your frame.

    Amber you look grand, not at all huge. Love the outfit. People are so passremarkable when you are pregnant, it’s like your body becomes public property or something and is fair game for comment. Eff the eff off I say.

I took this photo on the little tram that takes you from the Magic Kingdom car park to the transportation centre: I’d give pretty much anything to be back there on this rainy Monday morning ...👪

Currently inhaling my third coffee of the morning: I’ve been averaging about 6 hours sleep per night this week, thanks to a certain someone deciding that sleep is for the weak, and that he’ll just be getting up two hours earlier than usual 🤦‍♀️ Really hoping it’s just a phase: while it’s going on, I’m not fit to be seen, though, so here’s a photo from our visit to the beautiful Drummond Castle Gardens last week - such a beautiful place! 🏰 .

AD | So sad to be checking out of @highlandheatherlodges this morning: we’ve had such an amazing time here - it’s a beautiful place, with so much to do nearby, that we’ve really only scratched the surface: although that *could* be something to do with all the time we spent in the hot tub, obviously 😉 Thanks for having us, guys - we’ll definitely be back!

AD | We’re spending a few days at @highlandheatherlodges in beautiful Perthshire, for what Terry is optimistically referring to as his ‘birthday week’. (I say ‘optimistically’ - we’re only here for three days, and his birthday was yesterday, but don’t stop believing, Terry!)⁣
⁣
There’s a hot tub for us and a playpark for Max, so needless to say, we’re having a fantastic time, and I’m already dreading having to leave. Today’s big question: can I pass as an under-12, so I qualify for a pony ride at the nearby wildlife centre? 🤔 (On second thoughts, don’t answer that one...)⁣
