Tips from a New Mom

As a new mom, I know not all tips work for all people. But I was always itching for tips from other moms that I could try out when I became a mom – anything to help make the days (and nights) easier, right? I wanted to put them into a blog post for other moms, but also for me to look back on!

We are… EXPECTING!!!

I cannot believe I’m putting this into words – Peter and I are expecting our first little bundle of joy!!! Baby is due early February 2019, and we are so excited we can’t even believe our luck.

I am officially in my second trimester (14 weeks), and so far, I love pregnancy. The first trimester really kicked my butt, something I wasn’t totally expecting – I was so tired, so hungry and had no motivation to do anything. I just wanted to snuggle on the couch and watch Netflix all day!! As tired as I was, I knew a lot was going on in there – I’m growing a human being!! I am so impressed with my body and how it’s changing and adapting to grow our babe.

I currently have a bump which I am obsessed with (it’s not very big but I love it), and babe is currently the size of a peach and getting bigger all the time. Peter and I love checking all my apps to see how our babe is growing each day – it’s hard to believe that 9 weeks ago I found out I was pregnant, and the babe was the size of an appleseed!

When I took the test, we had been trying for 10 months – which felt like a really long time, but in reality it wasn’t that long (my parents tried for 7 years before they had my sister). I just had this funny feeling – I was super tired and hungry, like more than normal so I decided to take a test. And it came back POSITIVE! So I took 2 more over the next day, and both were positive – so we booked an appointment with our doctor, and it all went from there!

Peter and I are so excited, and I can’t wait to share more about my pregnancy, our plans for the future and how our lives are changing. Stay tuned, and keep an eye on my Instagram where I’ll be sharing a LOT of updates!!

Love – Rachel, Peter and babe xxx
