Mummy Confessions was surprised but also not surprised to find out she was pregnant. But how was she going to tell her husband?
Hi and welcome to my When I found out I was pregnant guest series! It was originally supposed to be a 12 week series, but not everyone responded. To be honest, I’m worried about having too much of a good thing and overdoing it anyway. As such, this will be the final week of the guest series and as has been requested, I will reveal my story next Saturday.
This week I’m excited to introduce Mummy Confessions from Down Under, who wondered how she was going to tell her husband!

For a while after she was born, I hated the name that we gave to our baby girl.
When you’re pregnant you spend hours looking at baby names with your partner, trying to pick the perfect one for your unborn child. My husband and I were no different; hours were spent searching the internet looking for inspiration. So, it pains me to say that for a period of time, I couldn’t stand my daughter’s name, despite the fact that I was the one who had chosen it. Hearing her name made me flinch; I felt like I wanted to change it to something else…

This Sunday I am reviewing the ‘Elizabeth’ teething necklace from Bo&Bel.

Autumn has been teething since around the time she turned 3 months old in December and at almost 6 months, she has now reached that age where everything within reach goes in her mouth!

Becky shares her story of when she found out she was pregnant and how she jumped on the bed to share the news with her partner.
Hi and welcome again!
Well, this guest series is now in full swing. It’s great seeing a new story each week about women’s different experiences of when they found out they were pregnant. Every story is unique, yet similarities can often be drawn. One of the most prominent similarities is the mixture of emotions that are felt when one finds out and today’s guest poster is no exception! This week, I’m thrilled to introduce Becky from Bringing up the Berneys. Continue reading “When I found out I was pregnant – Bringing up the Berneys”
Here is my list of 30 things I’d like to do before my 30th birthday.
As my friends keep reminding me, as I have recently turned 25 I am now closer to 30 than I am 20! Quite frankly, this kind of scares me as time seems to have gone so fast since I was 16 and seems to go quicker each year. As such, I felt the need to make a list of things I’d like to do before I turn 30. Hopefully I can achieve quite a few of these, so even if the time goes quickly, I’ll feel like I’ve achieved a lot with it!

When do you first start feeling like a mom/mother/mum? This post discusses when I first felt like I was a mum. Was it when I took my positive pregnancy test? Was it when I saw my baby on the sonographer’s screen or was it once she was actually born?
It was late January 2016 that I took my positive pregnancy test, so I’ve been thinking a lot about this time last year. I was thinking about when I started being a mum and when I started feeling like a mum. Without getting into a pro-life vs. pro-choice debate, I’d like to share my story and discuss with you when you first started being a mum. Continue reading “When do you start feeling like a mother?”
