Having a bad hip day today has reminded me I had meant to post a few things about my hips! SPD (or pelvic girdle pain as it’s now known I think) has hit me badly this pregnant. Didn’t have it the 1st time round. From about month 5 it became debilitating. I was in pain walking, getting out of bed, sitting, lying, I was staggering trying to carry my 14kg toddler.... and my activity levels gradually ground to a halt. (Who wants to move their body when it hurts??) But that didn’t help (at all) and things just got worse. So about 2 months ago I started some targeted work trying to reengage everything I thought might support my ailing hips - my glutes, lower abs and lower back. And I finally got in with the Physio last month. ...
Nowadays, minus the odd bad day or niggle, I’m largely pain free and completely functional! πŸ™ŒπŸΎ Thought I would post some of the exercises I’ve done that have helped me. THIS IS NOT A RECOMMENDATION. It’s just what has worked for me and my body. Your pregnant body should not be in daily pain. ALWAYS see a professional if you are hurting. ... These are GLUTE BRIDGES. I do them weighted but you can do them without any additional weight. Squeeze your butt until you hit the top of the movement and extra tight at the top, you should feel it stabilising everything.

Enjoyed @uikitchen’s 1st #FoodTube vid recently and tonight whipped up this tasty little number - a Mauritian dish called Rougaille. 
All the review you need is that my fussy eating toddler ate his, finished mine and then started shouting β€œmore dinner!!” πŸ˜„πŸ˜‹ #TheProofIsInThePudding #UrbanIslandKitchen #MauritianFood #GetInMyBelly #DannEatsCake #AndRougaille
This pregnancy hair thing is such a tease.... πŸ™„

I never in a million years anticipated I’d be the mama of a fussy eater, yet here we are! 😳 We weaned straight to family foods, and he happily ate the things we were all eating together- loved strong flavours, curries, tried everything...But as he’s gotten bigger and started to explore (& enjoy!) asserting himself more, that’s all changed. I realise part of it is just being a nearly 2 year old and I shouldn’t get stressed about it etc etc, but I’m totally open to advise and inspiration atm. πŸŒπŸ³πŸ§€πŸ“πŸ₯ͺπŸ₯—πŸ₯§πŸ₯£ Do you have a fussy eater? What has helped or not helped? Hit me up with your fave hashtags, websites and blogs. πŸŒπŸ³πŸ§€πŸ“πŸ₯ͺπŸ₯—πŸ₯§πŸ₯£ Here’s a snap of my fussy little eater who throws my beautifully cooked dinners on the floor but was happily sat yesterday eating sand by the fistful as if it were delicious sticky rice balls πŸ™„πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ #GiveMeStrength #ToddlerLife #PickyEater #MamasBaby #Holibobs #DannEatsCake #HugoEatsSand
