Motivation Monday – Under the sink

“A clean house, is a happy home”. 

It’s Monday again! Time to start a fresh new week… I know what you’re thinking, way to positive for a Monday morning…

I am currently signed off work with severe PGP (pelvic girdle pain) and recently diagnosed gestational diabetes, so my Monday’s are looking a little different at the moment compared to how they normally look. Due to these lovely pregnancy side effects, I’m finding motivation to do anything, is pretty tough. What with the pain, crutches and difficultly moving generally, I’m spending most of my time couped up at home resting. This has been having an effect on my mood, so I decided I would write a short list of things I would like to achieve this week. If I’m having a bad day, I won’t do anything simple. However, if I’m having a good day I will get my list out and hopefully get some bits ticked off.

Cleaning Time!

My TTC Journey

Just a girl who decided to go for it.  

Deciding to try for a baby is one of the most exciting yet daunting experiences you will ever go through. Are you ever truly ready? Probably not. Myself and Mr Mitchell decided to start trying for our first baby in September 2017, after I had surgery to remove my endometriosis. We were told that if we wanted a family it may not be as easy as we would like it to be, and that the greatest chance of conception was now. Post-surgery and young. Since meeting we both shared the same dream, that our future would involve a family. Mr Mitchell was especially keen to have a baby. In fact, he was ready before I was to start this journey.  So, we decided to go for it.

Welcome to my blog!

So, I decided to start a blog. Another mum blog to be precise, apologies in advance!

My name is Emma Mitchell and since trying to conceive my first baby I have noticed that conception, pregnancy, birth and motherhood seems to be a world of its own! A world, I currently know barley anything about and am venturing into for the first time. Pretty much alone may I add, apart from my wonderful Mr Mitchell. I thought through starting this blog I could document my journey, write about my personal experiences and if I happen to be able to help any other mums, or dads, along the way then great! Almost a diary if you like, with a goal in mind.

Mr & Mrs Mitchell

I live on the South Coast in a seaside town, not as picturesque as it sounds mind you, but it’s been my home since I was born, and I love living here. I live with Mr Mitchell and we are currently expecting our first baby, due on the 9th of December, 2018. Exciting times ahead, I hope to document in this blog.


I love all things baby related, but I also have a lifelong love of making lists! So, I plan to include any tips I find, organisational hacks and most likely the odd list in my blog as well!


I hope you continue to read my blog…
