Welcome to week 17 of #MaternityMondays! i just looked back at the last few posts and I clearly got very muddled about what week we were on… so I am pretty sure we are on 17 now :S Thanks so much to all you lovely bloggers who are continuing to link up very week, I am loving our little community, celebrating the joys (and sharing the challenges) of pregnancy, life with babies and motherhood in general.
I was on my holidays last week and it was very lovely to get away but I am very much playing catch up with everythin now! I am hugely grateful to the lovely Emma for hosting for me while we were away – it was actually quite nice to have a little break from blogging for a few days, but I am glad to be back and looking forward to reading all of your posts this week!
Here are Emma’s favourites from last week:
“My first favourite was from MamaMim with her apology to other parents for judging them. I thnk we are all guilty of this, I certainly am. What a great post.
Next up was Raising the Ring‘s post about the information available to pregnant women about caesareans. As someone who has recently had one, I wish I had had some practical information about what to expect so this is a must read.
My next favourite post was from Beautiful Things who had the amazing idea to dye her old muslins for her new baby. Such a good thing to think of and one I will definitely be thinking about.
I do usually only pick three favourites but I am breaking the rules this week and would also like to mention Delal Designs who is rocking some rather impressive maxi maternity skirts in summery, coloured fabrics. I’m even tempted and I’m not pregnant.”
This week we have also set up a Google+ page. It is so you can not only share your #MaternityMonday posts but you can share other related posts during the rest of the week. This is especially true for any birth announcements or pregnancy announcements as we don’t want to miss any. This is the link to the community. Please come and say hello.
Now it is over to you! Please grab our badge and share the linky love by commenting on a few other blog posts, it would be lovely if we could grow a little community to share the highs and lows of motherhood and parenting.
The linky is open Mondays only from 6.30am to midnight.
Don’t forget – you enter the URL of your post in the top box, whatever you would like to call your post in the ‘Name’ box, and your email in the bottom box 🙂
