Taking a look back

It is crazy to think that this time last year I was 7 weeks pregnant. It makes me so emotional thinking about it. I loved being pregnant, every second of it. It was the best time of my life, until Noah was born of course. I keep thinking about how those 9 months seemed to fly by. How we created someone so beautiful. How I carried and nurtured him all those days, weeks and months. How I thought I knew how it would feel to be a Mum and how much I would love him, but I didn't have a clue. Being a Mum to my son Noah is just unimaginable and I sit here and struggle to find the words to describe how in love and happy I feel right now. 

I can't wait until I get to experience pregnancy all over again but for now I just want to enjoy my baby boy but there's nothing wrong with taking a look back..

12 week scan - Baby diary 12 weeks
My very first glimpse of my baby boy. I remember going into that room so nervous. I was so relived when I saw my baby up on that screen and I shed a tear or two. It was so overwhelming and I had never felt anything like it before. It was instant, overwhelming love. The minute you see your child on that screen your world is all about them.

I was 90% sure I was having a boy from day one and even had a couple of baby boy dreams. I am terrible with surprises so we paid for a private gender scan to find out a little earlier. Of course I was right, he was a boy! We could tell he was a boy even before the sonographer told us, it was plain to see. It was lovely to see him again too. It was incredible to see how much he had grown in 4 weeks.

Again we couldn't believe how much he had grown, he was huge! I was also nervous at the 20 week scan as they do so many checks. Thankfully everything was ok. I got the lady to confirm if he was a boy too. I thought two opinions, he must be a boy. The next time I would see him would be when he was in my arms but I didn't think that at the time.

In case you missed it you can read my birth story here, beware I am very honest! And of course here is my introducing Noah entry. I loved pregnancy, labour, birth and now being a Mummy! 


  1. Noah is so cute, from birth onwards. He also looks like he is energetic and has fun, as he seems so happy in his pictures on other blogs. A little bit older with blonde curls.
