Our Gender Reveal!

If you have been following my blog you would have noticed a few *ahem* posts about me being pregnant. The last significant one being about why we were choosing to find out the sex of our baby. So, today was the day…

I was so nervous as we drove to the hospital, which is strange because I wasn’t expecting to feel this way. When we found out with Jake we were convinced the baby was a girl. It’s daft how you can build up an idea Continue reading “Our Gender Reveal!”

A Parent’s Choice: Why We Are Finding Out The Sex of Our Baby

We are coming up to our 20-week scan and the question on everyone’s lips is ″are you going to find out the sex of the baby?″ The thing I find most hilarious are the gasps when I reveal that we are.  And then the responses:

Breastfeeding- why all the controversy?

Breastfeeding- Why All The Controversy?

This week is World Breastfeeding Week and even though I have seen plenty of amazing articles from bloggers who have shared their stories, offered advice and support and, as always, have shown this stage of Motherhood in its true light I have still been left infuriated by the usual debates, arguments and ignorance that have cropped up all over social media. The worst for me has to be the fact that at the start of the week I kept seeing an article asking if we should be calling it world feeding week?  Continue reading “Breastfeeding- Why All The Controversy?”

me in hospital after c-section

My Emergency C-Section

April is caesarean awareness month and many people are sharing their stories of their experiences of their births. Many of these I have read and seen were elective c-sections and photos were taken and the experience was all very calm, prepared and straight forward.

I really don’t want to write my story and upset, worry or concern those who are pregnant now, but I wish I had known more Continue reading “My Emergency C-Section”

Only You Know Your Baby Best

When you become pregnant you may buy a few books and try and read up on what will happen; you may naively think that a baby is simply ‘textbook'(yep I am sure many of us have been there!) The baby then comes along and as you are trying to find your feet, cope with the sleepless nights and learn what your new little person needs, you will also be dealing with all those other bits of ‘advice’ being fired at you.
