I think it might be time to bin the pregnancy undercrackers. Are they too high if they rise this much above your jeans? Yes, I know, my husband is incredibly lucky and this is obviously total #goals.

Dip yer taes intae the life of Isabelle ‘Belle’ Moore. (1984-1975) - the youngest Scotswoman to win Olympic gold. (Belle far left in the 2nd pic ➡️)
.
The eighth of nine kids born in the working class area of Govan, Glasgow, Bella was taught to swim as part of a compulsory programme for schools. Belle would often walk 2-3 miles to the nearest pool to train, and her lang journeys paid aff when - aged 17 – she was snapped up for the British Olympic team. Tak aboot being in at the deep end.
.
Stockholm 1912 lay ahead. But her first event wisnae tae be. By her training, Bella was a long-distance swimmer, but – by Olympic standards of the time – women weren’t deemed capable of distance swimming. (Presumably if we were in there too long we’d get aw crinkly and have a bleed?)
.
So. Bella was to swim in the 100m, and in the 100m relay team. In 100m, she was to fall short. She wis jist gettin’ startit. But girded by that experience, she found her pace in the relay. Together with Jennie Fletcher, Annie Speirs and Irene Steer, the team set a new world record, beating the German and Austrian women's relay teams by a wide margin.
.
So why does Belle stand oot among the fab four? Well, at 17 years and 226 days old, she remains the youngest British woman to win an Olympic gold medal, and is also the only Scottish woman to win an Olympic gold medal in swimming. Imagine that, in a country wi’ aw these lochs.
.
And that was just the beginning of her mark on the wurld. In 1919, she married George Cameron, a naval architect, and moved to Maryland in United States. She spent the rest of her days teaching weans to swim and was posthumously inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame as an "Honour Pioneer Swimmer". That’s 80 years of being a Wegie-born absolute water-babe.
.
Oan yersel Belle. Yer some wumman.

Autumn is my favourite so we're making the most of these beautiful days before it gets frickin freezing. Full disclosure: one of us stood in 💩 #mylife #autumndays #iloveautumn🍁 #edinburgh #scotland #theglamlife #reallyreallynot #edinburghmumlife #scottishwomen #redhead
Sometimes it's scary to bring a girl up in this world but we are so incredibly lucky to be surrounded by fierce women and have the opportunities that we do. This little independent thinker will be taught to take no shit and that she can move mountains. Mummy is getting her fire back, baby! 💪#strongwomen #takenoshit #bekind #movemountains #mytribe #ittakesavillage #scottishwomen #edinburghmumlife

Proudly presenting Marie Loftus (1857-1940), known as ‘the Sarah Bernhardt of the Music Halls’. Marie was born in a far-fae-fancy hame on Stockwell Street in the centre of Glasgow, close to the Scotia Music Hall, where it’s said she danced as a girl. Her first named appearance though was aged 17 at Brown’s Royal Music Hall on the city’s Dunlop Street. Just three years later, Marie was treadin’ the boards in London, and by the late 1890s she was touring the USA and South Africa earning £100 a week (that’s about £9,000 in today’s money). Marie was pure raking it in.
.
That said, she seems to have remained a ‘Jenny fae the block’, never forgetting her roots. In 1894, after appearing at the Britannia (the world’s oldest surviving music hall, round the corner from where she grew up), Marie left an order with a local boot-maker for 150 pairs of strong boots to be given out to the poorest children of the parish.
.
The best mix of socialist and saucepot, Marie’s popular performances included songs like ‘Sister Mary wants to Know’, featuring the lyrics ‘Should he offer her his chestnut mare/To canter in the Row/Is it etiquette to take it?/Sister Mary Wants to Know!’. (Is a ‘chestnut mare’ a willy in this scenario? We’re not sure.)
.
Of such suggestive verses, The Quiz - a Glasgow magazine of the 1890s - wrote: "A man in the pit last night thought some of them were 'no verra proper'". Oh yeah? Deal with it, bro.
.
Despite this mild controversy, Marie had more fans than foes. Her contemporary A-list columnist and author J.J. Bell recalled "Glasgow never had a greater favourite”. And she’s one of our favourites too.
.
Oan yersel’ Marie, yer some wumman!

You are within your rights to feel uncomfortable, to set your boundaries and raise hell if you need to. 👊🏻Your sisters will raise you up when you're struggling. Brilliant visual by Scottish wonder woman Vonny Moyes. #wumminhood #scottishwomen #feminism #takebackyourspace #excusethebigcrossinthecorner
