Baby A’s Birth

Here’s hoping you don’t mind a little anonymity, but I refer to my partner as J and now my baby as A. I’m a firm believer in you can not be too careful online, but also in privacy of the individual and so this is how I choose to write my birth story. It allContinue reading “Baby A’s Birth”

The Due Date

So the date, Saturday 3rd July 2021, has come and gone.

No Gender Reveals Here

Instead of plugging my own content by making an exciting ‘the gender is…’ title, I’ve decided I can’t help being a bit more honest. Yes, we found out the gender of our almost 21 week gestational age baby! But no, we won’t be disclosing that here or anywhere else to anyone (if we can helpContinue reading “No Gender Reveals Here”
