As I get closer to my due date I am starting to get things ready for when the baby comes. I have the most gorgeous new changing bag from PacaPod in one of their new spring 2017 colours; it is the Richmond bag in dusky pink herringbone and it's so pretty! PacaPod changing bags are actually three bags in one and they're rather cleverly designed! I have been saving it for when the baby is actually here as it will just end up being full of the boys' toys and snacks if I start using it now, but I thought I would give you a closer look as a lot of people have been curious to know how more about it.

2016 was all about hygge, the Danish concept of calm, cosiness and simplicity, and it was something I embraced over the winter months. Snuggling up with blankets, candles and hot chocolate just seemed sheer bliss. For 2017 though, a new Scandinavian trend is sweeping over us Brits: lagom.

Lagom comes from Sweden and is more of an ethos, rather than just being about blissful moments. It's about finding balance: about not having too much or too little, but having just the right amount in life. Rather than finding time to squeeze a bit of lagom into your day, it's about finding balance in your whole life and with the world around us, making it more enjoyable, more sustainable and less expensive.

Hitting 28 weeks pregnant marks the start of the third trimester; we are on the countdown now! It's both exciting and terrifying, because time is really slipping through my fingers now. At 28 weeks pregnant my little Pip is about the size of a coconut. She (yes, it's a girl!) is nearly 16 inches long and weighs around 2.5lbs. Here's what's been going on during my 28th week of pregnancy with baby number three.

Pregnancy Diary: Third Trimester - 28 Weeks

When I was little I used to get ill a lot. I was diagnosed with asthma from a very young age and it meant that something like the common cold could really take it out of me. I remember the feeling of my mum rubbing Vicks VapoRub onto my chest and back to help me breathe more easily at night-time. I loved the comforting touch, and would often fall asleep as she did it. If I was off school due to illness all I ever wanted to do was be cuddled and snuggled under a cosy blanket on the sofa. I wanted my mum to comfort me and stroke my hair. I wanted to be looked after.
