I recently posted a photo on social media, and my husband got home and said that’s a bit of an unrealistic photo. Harsh but true! On a day to day basis, I don’t wear makeup and look pretty rubbish. That is why when I do take a photo, I straighten my hair, I plaster the make up on. My point is, we all post and say things that show us in a positive light, not many people share the hard parts. We then all have unrealistic expectations, and beat ourselves up when things don’t go as well as we hoped.
I want to start writing a blog on my experiences of pregnancy and being a new mum for a few reasons.
- For me to keep a realistic diary of what is happening. I think as time goes on we start distorting what actually happens.
- For me to share experiences of anything I have learned. My friends and family have already given me so much fantastic advice and I want to share what works and what doesn’t.
- To learn from other mums about their experiences. Are they the same/different from mine?
For point 3 I really need your help, so would love for you to follow the blog and comment on any of my posts in the future.
Thank you for reading.
Another blog to come soon!
