First-time parenting

Pamper Time

Now that I’m on maternity leave I’m making the most of the time before my little bundle of joy arrives by catching up with friends, cleaning the house and most importantly enjoying a bit of pampering. At my recent baby shower I was lucky enough to receive some amazing pamper products and wanted to share […]

Feeling hot hot hot

As we get a slight reprieve in the soaring temperatures this week, I thought I’d share my views on how to stay cool in the blistering heat. I’m finding that, at 36 weeks into my pregnancy, it’s getting harder and harder to cope with the heat. Like many mums-to-be I’m sure the question everyone keeps […]

Diary of a first-time mum – welcome!

Hi everyone! Welcome to Diary of a First Time Mum. Let me introduce myself, my name is Sarah, I’m 26 years old and live in Essex. I’ve been married to my husband for almost 3 years now and we’ve been together almost 6 years. I’m a very traditional girl at heart, very much taking after […]

Week 34 – Christmas comes early

Babycentre facts Baby’s weight – about the size of an average cantaloupe melon, around 2.1kg Length – 45cm, head to heel This week our doorbell hasn’t stopped ringing with deliveries for baby Strong. It’s surprising just how much kit such a tiny person needs. From a cot, changing table and bath to bedding, a buggy […]

Week 33 – the eight month scan

Babycentre facts Baby’s weight – almost the size of a pineapple, about 1.9kg Length – 43.7cm, head to heel   Every woman’s pregnancy revolves around just one day. Your due date dictates everything, from scans and appointments to nursery planning and nappy shopping. So it can be quite a shock when ‘B-day’ threatens to change. […]

Week 32 – back to (baby) school

BabyCentre facts Baby’s weight – about as much as a coconut, nearly 1.7kg Length – 42.4cm, head to heel   Pre-pregnancy, I used to look at expectant women and wonder quite literally how they slept at night. The idea of having a baby terrified me – to the extent that if I thought about it […]

Week 31 – fabulous friends and birthday fun

BabyCentre facts Baby’s weight – about as much as four navel oranges, nearly 1.5kg Length – 41.1cm, head to heel   This week I celebrated my birthday – my last one before motherhood. It’s bizarre to think that from this point on I will receive birthday cards from ‘my son’ (provided Chris gets his act […]

Week 29 – the seven month scan

BabyCentre facts Baby’s weight – almost the size of a butternut squash and weighing just under 1.2kg Length – 38.6cm, head to heel   Doctors and nurses aside, does anyone ever really feel at ease in a hospital? I don’t. For starters, there’s the negative connotations we all associate with them – surely having a baby […]

Week 27 – and in the home stretch

BabyCentre facts Baby’s weight – around 875g; about as heavy as a head of cauliflower Length – 36.6cms, head to heel   Two trimesters down, one to go. In less than three months baby Strong is due to make his appearance – alternatively I could say 12 weeks on Monday, but that sounds terrifyingly imminent. […]

Week 25 – the six month scan

BabyCentre facts Baby’s weight – around 660g; about the same as the average swede Length – 34.6cms, head to heel   Seemingly overnight I have succumbed to ‘the pregnancy brain’. I was absolutely 100 per cent sure that my six-month scan was on August 4th; I told everyone, lined up Skype dates to show off the […]

In the beginning

I have always known that I wanted to be a mother. I suppose more than most I am aware of the importance of family, and it’s been a dream of mine to have one of my own. Last July I married my (very) long-term boyfriend Chris, and seven months later we found out we were […]
