I'm Pregnant!

Pregnancy is one of the most exciting things I have ever experienced. It is also one of the scariest experiences of my life. There are so many people who will be only too happy to share their advice and experiences on how you should be feeling and so many websites with information about pregnancy. Sometimes you can feel absolutely overcome with information. That's why I have started this blog. It's a way for me to share my experiences with others who will be going through similar things.

When I found out I was pregnant I was told that morning sickness wouldn't last long and that during my second trimester I would bloom.

Well....I'm now 23 weeks pregnant and I am definitely not blooming. My morning sickness is still going strong. This just shows that pregnancy is different for all of us. Don't assume just because your tired and sick that you are doing something wrong! That was one of the first things I learnt as I watched mothers coping fabulously with no morning sickness at all whilst I was slumped over the toilet.

When I found out I was pregnant I was so excited. I've been in a secure relationship for 8 years and have wanted children for a few years now. As always though, there are other things to consider - financial security has always been my primary concern. 

Seeing the two blue lines was the most exciting thing I have ever saw.

Fast forward 23 weeks and even though I'm completely exhausted, the joy of feeling my little boy move makes it all so worthwhile.

I'm going to be a Mom - the tiredness will leave me (eventually!) but the joy and happiness our little jelly bean provides will last forever.

This blog isn't about providing an instruction manual for mothers to be. Let's face it we all trundle through it doing the best we can. It will however talk you through my thoughts and feelings on pregnancy and parenthood, whilst reviewing products and digesting all that information we find out there.

Please follow my blog for all things pregnancy and baby related.
