From a little girl I always knew I wanted to be a mum. After two COVID cancelled wedding dates, we decided to start trying for a baby in 2021 and found out we were expecting in April. The next few months went by smoothly; no sickness, baby growing well, normal blood pressure and we had a gender reveal party in mum’s garden.
I love to be organised, so by the time we were about 24 weeks we had almost everything we needed, even all the little bits like bath toys and baby wash. I look back now and can’t believe how naive I was. The only things we hadn’t bought were the big things, but they were all picked out ready to order. We were booked into NCT classes and a baby first aid course.
