5 Pregnancy Apps for First-time Mums

“Enjoy the moment while waiting.” ― Lailah Gifty Akita. There’s an app for everything these days and pregnancy is no exception. Finding out I was pregnant was a very nerve racking experience which I rambled about here. It wasn’t planned and I certainly never imagined it happening the way that it did. But it did and after the initial shock of it all I was ready to continue on the journey into motherhood. However, as a first-time mum I knew I would need a lot of help. Lucky for me I had an amazing support system around me but the App store played a significant role too.

My Pregnancy Journey

“You never understand life until it grows inside of you.” ― Sandra Chami Kassis Before I found out I was pregnant I always thought my pregnancy would be associated with three things: 1) Eating for two, 2) Craving a random and slightly questionable meal at 3am and; 3) Asking my husband to prepare me said meal in the middle of the night in our newly refurbished home. Spoiler alert. None of these things happened to me. None. Life has a funny way of doing the complete opposite of what you think it should do, right?

Babies, Break-ups and Blogging

“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realise that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.” Eckhart Tolle It’s been a couple of months since I’ve posted anything new on here but after a much needed break I’m back doing what I love. To mark my return I thought I'd share a little little life update on what's been going on and what I have in store for my little corner of the internet.

When You Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

“Change begins at the end of your comfort zone.” ~ Roy T. Bennett If you’ve been keeping up with my latest posts then you may know I’ve been going through something. I’m still going through it and I’ve not quite figured out how to share it on here. I will at some point. But for now, I’m focusing my energy of getting out of it. I’ve cried over it, I’ve prayed about it and now I’m ready to step out of it.

20 Things I Learned in 2017

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” ― Søren Kierkegaard. 2017 was a fun year full of more ups than downs and a lot of lessons. I wanted to share some of those with you as we begin the new year! As always, this is going to be a long one so please bare with me. What did 2017 teach me?

Staying Motivated When Starting Something New

“It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it.” ~ Lou Holtz. I don’t believe that anyone can stay motivated all the time especially when you are doing something for yourself. At least not in the real world. The lack of desired results can demotivate even the most ambitious individual so it’s important to take the steps needed to help you remain motivated and avoid falling into the pit of self-doubt. Here are the steps I'm taking.
