This post is a little bit different to my usual posts but it was one that I feel I need to write. Not only for myself and to get some things off my chest but also to let others know that you’re not alone! Whatever it is that you’re going through, you’re not going through […]Read More My Mental Health
This was meant to be something that I updated monthly and I’ve forgotten to do so for 3 months now, whoops. But I’m here and I’m ready to get back into the swing of things! Where do I even begin! So much has happened in the last 3 months! But I’ll start with this, my […]Read More Half Way to One
1. Was it planned? That is none of your business, to be honest. In fact, some older women get pregnant without planning, and some young women choose to have babies early.

When I was pregnant I would constantly think how things would be once our son was here […]Read More 2 Months Already!

I’ve hit my 35 weeks which means I’ve passed the 34 week benchmark! Although it’s not yet full term I am still super excited to have made it this far. But why is 34 weeks considered a benchmark? At 34 weeks my baby should weigh around 4.5 – 5 lbs, but don’t feel bad if […]Read More 34 Week Benchmark
The love languages are people’s way of feeling loved and showing others that they love them.It’s something that I’ve always been interested in and I’ve come to realise recently that not many people know what they are. My love language is “Words of Affirmation” which means that it means more to me when my partner […]Read More 5 Love Languages
Since 25 weeks into my pregnancy I have been asking myself over and over again if I really can be a good mum. All the signs for me pointed to “no” and I was terrified. If my body couldn’t cope with making a baby without going into self destruction then could I handle raising one? […]Read More I Can And I Will Be A Great Mum
