The time of your life!

The time of your life!
Okay, so stretch marks and morning sickness aren’t exactly highlights, but there’s so much to be positive about. So, come on, raise your (fruit juice) glass, and let’s hear it for pregnancy...

Bigger boobs, glossy hair, more attention than is strictly necessary, the chance to splash the cash, a healthy lifestyle, and bringing a whole new life into the world – gosh, pregnancy is wonderful, isn’t it? We want to celebrate all that’s great about expecting a baby, so join us at M&B on our pregnancy journey of joy!

What a boob!

While your back end may resemble that of a double-decker bus these days, your top deck is becoming more Jordan-esque. “I’m normally as flat as a pancake,” says Jyoti, mum to Bhakti, three, and 32 weeks pregnant. “But during both my pregnancies I’ve gone up two cup sizes and love my new-found bustiness,” she exults. You’ve got pregnancy hormones to thank for your expanding chest, as UK M&B expert and midwife Helen O’Dell explains, “Your increased hormones make your boobs bigger and these changes in your body are preparing you for giving birth.” So, stick ’em out and enjoy your new pair (but do get measured for a well-fitting maternity bra if you want to stop them heading south once your baby makes an appearance!).

all about you

“Most women moan about strangers touching their bump, but I love it,” says Madhura Sharma, 29 weeks pregnant, adding, “It’s like the person’s acknowledging that I’m doing something special.” Yes, this really is the time to lap up the compliments and accept all the attention that’s thrown your way. “People are genuinely happy for you, so make the most of what is actually a short period of time,” says Helen, “Learn to accept compliments and say ‘Yes, I know!’ when someone tells you you’re glowing.”
