Being a regular beauty blogger I'm well used to yapping about pretty things on Makeup & Beauty.ie. I have been considering a bump blog ever since my first pregnancy. I wanted somewhere to rant, rave, review but mostly, a place to chat. My only hesitation was the uncertainty of a healthy pregnancy - something I shared on my beauty blog in detail when I announced my second pregnancy. Luckily everything went swimmingly and I now have a beautiful 11 month old baby girl called Eve.
I found out I was expecting my second bub 2 weeks before Christmas - thank you Santa :) I was shocked to say the least, but thrilled.
Like many of you who are parents or are expecting, I know too well the ups and downs of trying to conceive, fertility issues, negative tests, PCOS, the highs and lows of the pregnant mama and the indescribable joy that accompanies the birth of your nugget. This time last year I was up to my eyes in pre-eclampsia, hospital stays, inductions and in the end a C-section. I'm also all too familiar with the joys and woes of rearing said nugget from baba to toddler. Not to mention the hundreds of hours of research that went into choosing a buggy, pram, high chair.. you know how long that list gets!
My experience has been a rollercoaster, one I hope I never have to get off. I can't wait to share it all with you lot :)
I would love if you'd leave a comment below and introduce yourself!
