Well here we are, week three of #MaternityMondays! Thank you so much to everyone for linking up, we really appreciate it and we love reading your posts!
There were some brilliant posts last week and it is hard to choose favourites but I loved Our Little Escapade’s post about Ethan saying Mummy, such a precious Mummy moment and all the more special having had to wait so long to hear it.
Little Hearts, Big Love shared the most beautiful home birth story. I think she was really brave having a home birth but it really sounds like a wonderful experience and I have to admit to being a little envious of the water birth.
I also really loved What Maternity leave has given me, from Mum in a Nutshell. A beautiful post about how starting her blog on maternity leave has helped rebuild her confidence. It is a post I am sure many blogger mummies will be able to relate to and is well worth a read!
This last week has been a tough one for me. Monkey’s first days at playgroup have been challenging, and he has been getting more and more upset each time. We have potentially turned a corner now and he seems to have started enjoying it, and I just really hope this progress continues as it has been difficult to see him so unhappy.
I have also been massively hormonal. I stopped breastfeeding about a month ago and have been hit with a huge change in terms of hormones. My hair has started shedding, as it does post pregnancy, which is horrible and leaves my hair feeling like a bird’s nest. I have been having mood swings and been quite low at times, especially in the run up to my first post-pregnancy monthly visitor and re-starting to take the pill. So yes it’s been an emotional week really! I am linking up a post about why we decided to move on from breastfeeding when we did.
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. It is my turn to host this week and I am really looking forward to reading your posts!
