We are very proud to announce that on Friday 13th January 2017 at 06.50 our little 6lb 3oz beautiful little boy was born!
Most women when they find out they are pregnant become hyper-aware about what they should and shouldn’t be putting into their bodies knowing full well whatever they consume will somehow affect their growing child but actually what you put on your skin can be just as important.
When it came to buying things for the baby we started quite late. This was my choice more than anything because I’m a natural born pessimist and I anticipated the worst to happen from the very beginning. At 5 weeks I had some bleeding and as I was also working that day I remember doing the long slow walk from my department to A&E and checking in thinking I’d lost my beautiful baby.
I’m 37 weeks! I’ve made it to the end and am now officially full term so could pop at any time! That being said I’m panicking at all the posts I haven’t written before this pregnancy ends that I’m actually spending some nights frantically making notes on my phone on all the things I want to say before it all ends and a whole new chapter begins in our lives.
As I mentioned previously in my ‘What’s in my hospital bag’ post, packing baby’s bag was a very exciting time for me. I loved going through all the fresh new little baby clothes that we’d either bought ourselves or that we’d been given by friends and family and picking out all the newborn things.
