How should I feel in the First Trimester of Pregnancy?

As I’ve decided to share my experiences of pregnancy and parenthood, I thought I’d look back on my diary, to note how I was feeling at each stage of pregnancy. It’s interesting reading it back and I’m glad I documented this crazy, special time. But also perhaps it’ll put some other mums-to-be’s minds at ease and assure you that you’re not the only one going through these changes and feelings.

Moments Together – Number 1

So I’ve decided to refresh HollyGoesLightly a little bit and make it simpler for you to tune-in and follow!

So with that in mind, I’ll be largely posting certain content on certain days, as follows:

Monday –

#MomentsTogether (a new series, of which this is Number 1, focusing on those special moments in life, shared with others). It’ll be a video post or gallery of photos.

Wednesday –

Food or Travel (does what it says on the tin! These will be my restaurant reviews, foodie posts and travel/holiday content). These will be full blog posts with photos and/or videos.

Friday –

#MummyFriday (a series of parenting posts). This will be a mixture of my reflecting on my pregnancy and time as a mother, other mummy stories and guest-written posts and anything focussing on parenting really.

Sunday –

House & Home (all things interiors and home related). This will be anything from design and styling inspo posts, to #TheHouseProject updates, to product reviews or recommendations.Continue reading

The Dating Scan – Round Two

So I’ve told you about our first scan appointment, also known as the dating scan. We were very anxious at the scan, as I think most first-time parents probably are, but all went well and we were super happy.
