30 whole weeks of growing this miracle! Everyday I'm in awe that my body & baby knows exactly what it has to do. 💫 A few days after I had Archie a Doctor told me I had a 5cm abdominal separation and that no matter what I did I would probably never get it back. At the time I didn't care because Archie had complications and that was where my focus was, but in retrospect I though what a terrible thing to say to a new mum! No one really followed up and I didn't know what I should or shouldn't be doing to improve it during the following months, but I'm pretty sure it went back on its own eventually. Now that my abs are already starting to separate this pregnancy I want to be informed on the safest way to regain strength post bub, so today on notsomumsy.com wellness contributor (and certified pre & post natal fitness specialist) @notummymommy is shedding some light on "The post baby body problems mums don't talk about, but should." It's a must-read for all mamas! Link in bio. #30weeks #protectorlovermother #notummymommy #contributorpost #notsomumsy

OH EM GEE!!! I was totally over the moon to be a finalist at the #top50influencerawards but to come third place has kind of blown my mind!! These awards celebrate the success and impact of Australian online influencers across YouTube, Instagram & blogs judged by reps from Buzz Feed, Cosmopolitan Mag, Australian Financial Review, Nova & Showpo. Almost 4 years ago I had an idea that it would be nice to create a space that celebrated modern motherhood and bridged the gap between fashion & mummy blogs & along the way have built this amazing community of like minded mamas from all over the world. Thank you to all my contributors, the mamas I've interviewed and those who have shared their stories & supported me when I've shared mine. I've had so many amazing opportunities & pinch me moments on this ride, but the best part is connecting with you guys & being able to use my platform to partner with some amazing charities. I absolutely love my "job" (thanks to lovely gals @chic_blogger_mgt) & this recognition really is the icing on the cake so THANK YOU @mydealaustralia @trivago @nova100 @theright.fit ⚡️⚡️⚡️ Shout out to my sis @bella_leone for being my cheerleader last night ( as you can hear on Insta Stories!) & to the beautiful @houseofwhite_ for being my impromptu videographer ;) For those asking Dress @aclerwoman Make up @makeupbyameliawebb Hair -3 day mum bun released 5 mins before event thanks to time restrictions from our cancelled flight... definitely looked a little limp and floppy next to the host @ginaliano 😂 Now I think I need three days on the couch with my babes!! #mydeal #notsomumsy #30weekspregnant #ouchmyfeet #bedplease

I've really enjoyed exercising through this pregnancy- I want my body to feel strong, but mostly I do it for my mind- giving myself that time to zone out is honestly my stress relief! I get a lot of messages about what exercise I do and Ive definitely modified my routine for the different stages of pregnancy. I currently exercise 2/3 x a week- a mix of one on one pilates (hello pelvic floor!! ) and easy cardio (walking/bike/lunges). Nothing too hectic, just enough to feel toned & get the endorphins going. My activewear has also changed as bump (& boobs!) have grown. Support is everything! I'm loving the new Triaction by @triumph_au sports bra range- particularly the cardio Extreme Lite- supports without bulk, padding or underwire- perfect for my growing 👀! ;) #29weeks #TriactionCardio #notsomumsy #Sp #findtheoneka
