ONE


I don't know how, but a whole year has passed by since the most wonderful day of my life. The day I met my Oliver Rey. A whole year with my sweet, sweet boy!

Oliver Rey | A Birth Story


Oliver Rey - was born on the 31st January at 00:10am weighing 8lb 10oz!

I began my maternity leave half way through my 37th week of pregnancy and fully expected that I would (like a lot of the first time mums I knew) go over due. I had two and a half weeks until due date and fully intended on using this time to keep on top of housework ready for the big day arriving, having chilled dog walks and making the most of my free time by meeting up with friends for coffee and that's exactly what I did. Week 40 arrived and that's where this birth story really begins.

Third Trimester Update

We're finally here! I am currently 37 weeks pregnant and I write this having just experienced my first half a day of maternity leave! Baby M is fully baked and could arrive at any time. I feel both incredibly excited but also terrified at this prospect! Not about the labour as most would expect - that part I'm oddly looking forward to experiencing. I'm more terrified of the fragile little person who I will have brought into the world and who will rely on me to take care of his every need! That shit is 'adulting' for real!

Entering The Unknown

The Christmas festivities are drawing to an end and I find myself contently enjoying time off work and living those in between days before we wave goodbye to yet another year and say hello to a brand new one. As I sit here writing this, I am reminded by the movements of arms and legs in my belly, of all the change that awaits me in the new year. At some point within the next 5-7 weeks I will become a mother. 'My life will change forever' - is a phrase I am hit with often.

The Second Trimester

Tomorrow marks my 33rd week of pregnancy, I am a fair few weeks into my third trimester and feeling/looking huge! Which means writing up about all I experienced in the second trimester is well overdue! I've been rather rubbish at documenting my pregnancy and didn't make notes of my symptoms as they were happening which meant I had to rack my brain to remember the little things. I have learnt my lesson however and have already got a loooong list ready for the third trimester update, which who knows, I may even get round to writing before the baby is born!

A Pre-Birthday Weekend


It is my 24th birthday tomorrow (Monday) and as I will be at work, there won't be much room for celebrating, so we've pretty much spent the weekend in birthday mode. Saturday night we enjoyed a meal out with family to celebrate both mine and Ash's birthday as his was on Wednesday.

The First Trimester


This is going to be a long one - if you're generally not into baby/pregnancy stuff you should probably skip this one. 

As of tomorrow I will be 22 weeks pregnant, as you may notice from the developed bump pictured above. So I've been in my second trimester for a while now and figured I had better write this, before I forget all that happened/enter the third trimester. 

Time seems to be going by at an alarming rate now, despite those first 12 weeks feeling like forever. The anticipation to tell everyone our news really ensured that reaching that first scan felt like the longest wait of our lives. Christmas will be here before we know it and our boy will be arriving not long after.
