I had the best intentions when I found out I was pregnant with Annabelle. I was going to take weekly photo updates to make into an amazing pregnancy video, blog about feelings & kicks and a dedicated vlog to the planning of her nursery. Lastly, once born, I was planning to blog about my favourite products, our daily stories and share cute videos.
1 year after finding out I was pregnant and nearly 4 months after having Annabelle, I am happy to say I have done NONE of it! Turns out, being pregnant/having a baby and running a business is harder than Instagram would have me believe!
So to sum up the last year in bullet points (as opposed to the 104 blog posts I thought I would post!)
-Yay we are pregnant
-Oh, boo I'm 15 weeks pregnant and I have no bump
-Wow 18 weeks and there is the bump
