The First Trimester

When Jamie and I told friends, family and colleagues that I was pregnant, we were greeted with congratulations and excitement, and when I told other mothers that I was pregnant this was quickly followed with "you'll feel better after the first three months!" Pregnancy seems to be widely acknowledged as a rotten experience during the very beginning - and very end - and though I haven't had the worst time it definitely has been a ride so far.

Honestly, I'm a complete novice when it comes to all things baby - I've never spent much time around young children, with little experience of their needs, what to expect at each age, or how to talk and act around them, so as a result everything about this journey is fascinating to me. I've suddenly become glued to pregnancy books and journals just to try and gauge what to expect and what is normal (A few blogger favourites are Sian and Alice) and I've googled more random pregnancy queries than I'd care to count. But I've found that everyone's very different experiences have made me realise my own experiences aren't weird or unusual, they're just mine - there's no standard on how pregnancy is going to be for any one person, so if sharing this helps any one person accept their new version of normal then that is all I can hope for! Here are my experiences of pregnancy with Shroomie, weeks 1-13:

Welcome, Shroomie

It's been too long since I've posted here, and it's safe to say that for me 2018 has been the year of change. From moving last minute in March, to my partner Jamie unexpectedly changing jobs in the same month, to taking driving lessons and going on some mini breaks, it's been a wonderful but challenging year that has left me with little time to truly stop and take a breath. But this year is only the beginning of an entirely new adventure we're embarking on, and I wanted to come back fresh with some updates I'm so incredibly excited to share.
