I’m 39 weeks and 5 days pregnant with my first child – Due to be induced on Saturday. By Monday I will be a mother for the first time and life will explode with joy, fear, fatigue, love and all the emotions in-between.
For the next 50 weeks of my maternity leave I’ll be embarking on a new life adventure on the homefront. I’ve started this blog to record the major milestones, mistakes and misgivings of life as a new mother. I promise not to become one of those self-obsessed new moms oversharing every bowel movement, feeding mishap and tedious detail of motherhood. Rather I hope to share the human moments, ideas and insights on this special, yet awkwardly challenging, time in life. I also hope to pick-up many tips and guidance along the way from those who have gone through it all before.
I invite you to follow along as I make the transition from the working world to the domestic sphere…and hopefully live to tell the tale!
