17 Weeks Pregnant Update

Yup I’m 17 weeks closer to meeting my baby ๐Ÿ˜…. How bizarre is that? I Nichole Corcoran, will soon have a little baby in my arms, and my own little family like jeez it’s just crazy!

How am I feeling… Well the huge plus is that I haven’t vomited like at all which I am so happy with… I have been feeling queasy and sick but haven’t actually gotten sick… A few girls contacted me through Snapchat, Facebook & Instagram who have similar due dates to ours and a few of them have said they’ve been none stop vomiting and can’t even eat ๐Ÿ˜ณ the poor things, even reading it I was in bits imagining trying to work and carry on your daily routine while non stop throwing up! Some women are just troopers and I applaud you all โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป


My tummy is growing and it’s so strange to see a bump and even feeling it… I can only imagine when it starts getting bigger and gets really hard! Before I got pregnant I was actually at the heaviest weight I’ve ever been… I just really could not loose it I had no motivation what so ever and I even got stretch marks because let me be real… I’ve been gaining and loosing weight since I’m younger… Constantly yo yo dieting… But never got to the size I was before pregnancy so my skin just had enough and couldn’t deal with the gaining and loosing so quickly! I was really down because of it and my weight but I’ve out all that begins me now and I’m happy with my body like hello it’s growing a human being right now and I know I will get back to being healthy when this little cutie comes along and loose it in a healthy way this time no fast fad diets! ย I’ve found I need to keep snacks with me to pick on throughout the day and a bottle of water because I get super thirsty so I try to have rice cakes in my bag at all times lol. I rest a lot more then i used to but when I’m working I don’t feel tired until I finish up which is great… So when I get home I just totally relax ย ๐Ÿ˜

At 17 weeks I’ve read that baby can recognise your voice how cute is that ๐Ÿ˜ and that between 17-22 is when mom feels babies first kicks… I’ve never been so excited to be kicked ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

My 20 week scan is coming up and were looking forward to that because it’s just another milestone Yano? All these things make it more real because I don’t know if it’s just me or is it everyone but it still doesn’t feel completely real? I don’t think it will sink in until we have our baby in our arms in 23 weeks time…. Jeez that even sounds like very little time… Honestly before I was even pregnant I always had this fear of when i would give birth in the future… I’m soooo scared ๐Ÿ˜“ right now I just haven’t been thinking about it but God Im gonna have to think about it soon so I can prepare!

Until next time,

Lots of Peace, Love & Happiness



Il Padrino Ristorante Cork Review

Hey Dawls,

Last week Philip came up with a great idea to just head into town, have a nice meal and some drinkies ๐Ÿ™‚ Totally random but aren’t they always the best nights ๐Ÿ˜‰

So we decided to try out Il Padrino for the first time which is located at 21 Cook Street.

The minute we even got in the front door we were greeted and had some craic telling us ‘no reservation lads no? sorry can’t help ye’ lol he was messing, he sat us down to our table by the window. Straight away the atmosphere was magical because I actually felt like I was abroad between the decor of a typical Italian restaurant and the candle on the table it was just beautiful and had a great vibe!

Philip being the bestest boyfriend ever as usual, ordered a bottle of prosecco for us which was so yummy and just with the setting and everything it was really romantic!

We had a major nose through the menus to see what we were going to have, because im now vegan/vegetarian I had to be carefull with what I ordered, but they were so helpful and kind! The man serving us was literally so nice every time he left the table I was like ‘awwww’. We went with these two meals Carbonara for Philip and Fussili Premevera for myself ๐Ÿ™‚

When the food was dropped down to our table myself and Philip were drooling! It just looked and smelt amazing, we couldn’t wait to eat it but of course I had to take a photo first ๐Ÿ˜‰

Okay so when I say it was delicious, I mean absolutelyย divine!! It tasted even better than it looks if that’s even possible! We were able to just chill out and have our chats while sipping on our presecco afterwards and enjoy every minute of it. It was so relaxing and romantic. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you haven’t tried it our yet, perfect for date nights ๐Ÿ˜‰ The staff went up and beyond to cater to us and even gave us two free shots of some sort which was so nice of them.

We will definitelyย be back soon Il Padrino , that’sย a promise ๐Ÿ™‚

Lots Of Love,
