Would I have more children?

It's funny, the moment you give birth one of the most frequent questions you get asked, aside from the usual 'how does he sleep?' is 'would you do it again?'.

Ash and I have always spoke of having two children. Ash is one of ftwo - having an older sister, however I grew up as an only child (although I do have two half brothers that I've never lived with or grew up with) and so never really understood what it's like to be a sibling, or what a sibling relationship is like.

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!
