“Read me a story, tuck me in tight, tell me you love me and kiss me goodnight”
I decided to wait until we returned from holiday, before I started anything and to aim to have him in his room, by around 6 months. Although I wasn’t going to rush things, I wanted to give him the time to get used to things.
What have I packed?…
I have been thinking about what to pack in my hospital bags for quite a while and I managed to find time to write yet another list! I decided I would pack my bag and baby’s bags separately.
“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.
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.
Firsty, I want to say thank you for taking the time to visit my page, I hope you stay and have a look around.
Secondly, I want to introduce myself and my family. My name’s Emma and i’m a 25 year old first time mum, to a very smiley, little man. I decided to start this blog during the later stages of my pregnancy, as myself and Mr Mitchell were about to become a family of three. The world of conception, pregnancy, birth and motherhood seemed to be a world of its own and as it was somewhere we were venturing into for the first time, I wanted a place to document it, remember it and to share it.
Finally, I want to say thank you to everyone who has followed me, reached out to me and joined me on my journey. I never expected it to become what it has. A platform, a support network, where I have been lucky enough to meet fellow parents and share the ups, the downs, the tips, tricks and experiences with them. I hope this continues to grow.
If you want to join us on our journey, I would love for you to click follow and come back soon.
