See you on the other side…

So this is it. I’m excited to be embarking on a whole new adventure very soon…and this is me signing off for a while.

I’m sure most of you have noticed that pregnancy hasn’t been easy for me, I found the intense sickness at the beginning REALLY hard and the constant social media opinions possibly even harder but now I’m here, I’m looking back with fond memories and now thinking I will miss this bump, my companion for the last 40 weeks….

I wanted to say a sincere THANK YOU all for always sending words of encouragement over the entire pregnancy, it really has been a wonderful community and something I have really found helpful and inspiring. And it has given me a newfound love of the blog and internet community.

Things I will miss:

Thick, easy to manage hair, clear skin, Chris always bringing me a tea and toast in the mornings, slowing down and working less. Really hoping some of these things will be something I can take onboard with my new role (!).

Things I won’t:

Everyone only ever wanting to talk about my bump, the constant colds, backache, insomnia, the ill-fitting trouser situation.

But the main feeling here is excitement. We cannot wait to meet this extra person that will be with us permanently!

I will keep everyone updated via Instagram and Facebook on any news, and this post here explains my plans for the blog going forward.

So, I’ll see you on the other side, I suppose!

  1. So excited for you both! Looking forward to hearing news of the new arrival. You will be fantastic parents. The only piece of advice that I can pass on (cringe) is to always trust your instincts. I hated other people’s advice but that one, I have to say, stayed with me because it is so true. You will be the one who knows your baby best! Good luck, Alex! Xx

  2. Just enjoy it. It’s knackering having a newborn but it’s all great. Ignore any other requests on your time. Suit yourself and Chris and baby only. Take all the help when it’s offered. Best of luck and see you when we see you again x

  3. You seem to have a very grounded and realistic approach to everything, so I hope you take everything in your stride regardless of outside pressures. Will miss your sensible and kind voice on the internet, but wish you a lovely time with your growing fam. All the best xx

  4. No advice from me, just all best wishes for a safe and happy arrival, with all your baby’s wonderful days ahead! I hope you enjoy as much as you can and I hope your confidence builds quickly as you start your new adventure.
