    Sorry I couldn't think of a better title!

    I recently found my Mexican Bola chain that I wore every single day after my dating scan (I thought I'd lost it and I was so upset as it wa sa pressie from my wonderful bump buddy). It's little chimes bought back so many happy memories. Even James seemed to recognise the noise !!

    Just this morning I opened a bottle of Nivea cream, I used this several times a day when preggers but have not had the time to cream myself since having bub... My God the smell just bought it all rushing back!!

    I was very lucky that I adored being being pregnant. Although it is such a distant memory now.

    Anyone else have things that remind them of being preggers?

    That's so sweet he recognised it!

    Just before I had my wee fella, I made a playlist on my phone of songs out when I was pregnant and everytime I listen to them it takes me back! I do miss being pregnant. I thought it was hard at the time, but knowing what I know now about life with a new born, I didn't have a clue! I just wish I'd enjoyed it a little more at the time.

    Oddly, every time I walk past the toilets in the shopping centre I feel all gooey (not a great choice of words!) because that's where I found out I was pregnant & not just ill. Long story.

    Rice cakes (the plain ones) because that's all I could stomach in the beginning. Now I can't face them.

    Found a love for peanut butter too. I couldn't resist. Unfortunately that love still lives on.

    I hadn't seen the chain in months (I had it out loads when he was teeny so I knew I still had it!!) and I was so upset. I looked literally everywhere and found it yesterday... He loves it.

    palmers cocoa butter and pickled eggs bring it all back for me.

    and l'oreal extraordinary oil reminds me of being in hospital right after labour. Not sure why as I had used it all through my pregnancy.

    also this heat is bringing it all back! was hot sweaty and very pregnant through summer last year!

    I was going to do a post like this ... Fun came on the radio earlier and it was top of the charts when I was pregnant and it took me right back to the heat wave we got last April and being stuck in work dissolving in the mad heat

    Im packing to move to our new home but this morning ive been in floods of tears. Ive been sorting out daisy grace's memory boxes. She has 4. I had a peak through some of them and wept when I helf her little sleepsuit we dressed her in when she was just minutes old. Its all come flooding back. My baby girl has been away at my mums since Saturday night and I miss her terribly. But we couldn't paint/pack/move with here here so my mum has been a godsend. Cant wait for her to come home at 6pm. So her being away isn't helping lol.

    I love all the memories. I filled in her journal from my bump buddy and yold het that this house was where she was created, nurtured in my tummy, came home to and where we spent her first 8 months of her life. But our new home is our future where mummy and daddy will watch her grow and learn and play and laugh. Ive not stopped crying all morning cause of all this!!!

    Its lovely that james recognised the bells. Xx

    What a lovely thread :)

    I have a top that I bought when I was about 18/19 weeks pregnant and I remember putting it on and it was the first time that I looked at myself and thought "holy crap, I look pregnant!" Until then I was convinced I just looked fat until then but in that top you could proper see my wee bump & I remember just standing looking in the mirror crying with happiness :)

    The smell of Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy reminds me of being pregnant with Cassie. My workmates bought me it when I had morning sickness and to this day it still gives me the boke. Don't get me wrong, I loved it, but it set of my morning sickness as its strong and now thats what my brain associates it with lol. And for Logan the smell of Dettol remninds me of being pregnant. I had strong cravings for it. My house stunk of it as I would scrub EVERYTHING with it! My craving was so bad that I wanted to drink it, although I obviouslyy never did x

    The song fun was the song that Kaiden first moved around in my tummy to :) and I used to play it to him every day and he used to kick me every time.
    The other thing that brings back memories is pink lemonade lucozade, I had this while I was in labour.
    And lastly the jubilee freezer pops, I ate loads of them!! Xx

    I love this!
    I stayed team yellow and when we went on holiday my sister kept singing that Carly Rae Jepsen song to my bump and then going are you a Harry or a Molly and he used to go mad!! Proper cheesy song but when I hear it now I get a lump in my throat thinking about that holiday and how excited we all were for the arrival :)

    How strange that you started this thread today as I went and brought coconut body oil from body shop today which is what I used in my pregnancy and hubby used to rub it on my bump every night!
