Introducing… Me.

It’s taken me a while to summon the energy to start a blog about this. I’ve been thinking about it for a couple of months. Probably longer.

I have decided to write this blog as an antithesis to the general societal norm that pregnancy should be a time of celebration, that pregnant mothers should “glow”, and approach their impending motherhood with serenity, grace and poise.

My experience to date is anything but the above. It’s horrendous. If I couldn’t pee on a stick and see two lines, I’d have thought I were dying.

This blog is all about how it really is through my eyes, and to add to a growing number of voices that just because your pregnancy isn’t textbook and perfect, that you are no less of a woman, no less capable as a parent, just that pregnancy doesn’t do well with some people – particularly me.

I am currently 12 weeks pregnant with my second child. And I shall fill you in in the near future on how I have reached this point.

Until then, I shall be sitting down and attempting nothing!

Keep breathing.

30-something Mum to a toddler. I am pregnant, and I am rubbish at it. My body doesn't seem to be able to cope with daily life as well as pregnancy, so I have had to put my life on hold while I grow another person...

    After my second child was born I was walking along my hallway and I burst into tears, full heaving sobs. I’d suffered from sever PND after my first son, and antenatal depression and complications including SPD/PGP with my second. My husband asked me why I was crying. I realised I was sobbing because I was so relieved not to be pregnant any more. I realise, I truly do, how lucky I am, but being pregnant and depressed and having a broken pelvis – it wasn’t good for me. It was awful. And so many women are so relieved when you break the spell with them and acknowledge that for some of us pregnancy is really hard. Good luck with this blog, and the pregnancy.
