babyhood - my next big adventure

Wednesday, July 22, 2015

Yes, you read the title of this post correctly! I'm having a baby...

To be honest it's taken a wee while to adjust to the idea of being a mum. However with each passing day and my growing bump the change that is upon hubby and I is slowly sinking in (or sticking out).

I'm currently mid second trimester, and finally back to feeling relatively normal after feeling incredibly sick for the last four months (hence blog absence). At last I can look at a computer screen again without wanting to be physically sick. Yay!!

Hubby and I have nicknamed the baby Kódai, which I believe means 'great adventure' in Japanese. I read that in a book once :)

Anyway... I'll try my hardest to keep any pregnancy posts to a minimum because I know it's not the most interesting topic and Kódai is yet to be born.

For now I'm busy looking for some new blogs to read about:

  1. motherhood
  2. travelling with a baby
If you know of any good ones please let me know!

And here's a snap from my latests travels in Canada just last week. Gorgeous don't you think? I took this photo in Banff National Park.

More to come soon...

ps. Kódai is due in November.

    1. Thanks Ingrid. Yep, I've been thinking about blogging a lot, and wanting to get stuck in - I just physically couldn't bear to look at a screen for the last few months! Very glad that phase is over :)

  5. Congratulations! I totally understand how you needed a blogging break - I was the same. So ill in the beginning! But I'm 8 months into motherhood now and it's as wonderful as you imagine it will be to have that lovely baby. And staying true to your identity pre baby is possible! As is travel. For now though, my best advice is rest and do what you can to stay well.

    1. Thanks Clare. I'm doing plenty of resting, with just the odd spot of travel in between ;)

  6. Congratulations!! I'm glad to hear you are feeling better! My first 4 months sound similar to yours - hopefully the rest of your pregnancy will go smoothly and you will feel great!

    Starting in mid-September I'm starting a travel forum about traveling while pregnant and with a baby. Feel free to tune in then or shoot me an email :)
