Why Pregnancy is a Whole New Ball Game The Second Time Around

Remember your first pregnancy? All those people telling you to take it easy? Never being able to lift anything bigger than a kettle without somebody jumping in?

My pregnancy, birth and aftercare journey

My Pregnancy, Birth and Aftercare Journey

When I became pregnant the first time I remember it all being such a whirlwind of excitement and expectations as well as having that slight tinge of nerves that I was going to be a Mum. However, when it came to actually being pregnant and getting through the birth I didn’t have any worries or anxieties. I had a lot on my plate with work and I had the attitude that millions of women had done this before so there was no reason that I couldn’t too! So with that, I only read Continue reading “My Pregnancy, Birth and Aftercare Journey”

my pregnancy, the first trimester

My Pregnancy- The First Trimester

I was really organised when I found out I was pregnant and thought it would be a nice touch to write a diary. I imagined it being funny, helping other pregnant Mums and being a nice keepsake to look back on… Then the morning sickness started.

So I have a little bit of my diary that I can share with you but after that you will just have to imagine me laying on the sofa and having my head over the toilet!

However, this interview was slightly different. Continue reading “It Is OK To Hate Pregnancy”

the side of pregnancy you aren't always told about

The Side of Pregnancy You Aren’t Always Told About

When we envisage pregnancy we imagine a glowing face, a blooming bump and eating for 2. I found that I was very naive about what pregnancy could actually entail and I still feel that a lot of areas are not discussed enough or if they are it isn’t in the appropriate detail that we need. We have come through times where talking about personal issues is a no-no but I feel we are now in a society where we want the information, where we need to hear the truth and want to be far more prepared for what will happen during pregnancy, Continue reading “The Side of Pregnancy You Aren’t Always Told About”
