How am I even a mother of 3? Aren't I still a child? 😆 Last September, we welcomed a baby girl to the family! I've had people say, oh, the girl you were longing for...was that really the case? Well, no and yes. In that order. Wanna know more? I have a story for you,… Continue reading And then there were 3!
Where the motherhood journey actually begins
Am I in Labour???
Labour pains. We've all heard about it. It's probably the most talked-about pain in the world and many believe there's no other pain that can be compared to it. Two babies later, what is my judgement? Well, let's talk about my experience first. I had almost the same experience with both babies... let's say they… Continue reading Am I in Labour???
Yes, Mummy! You are pregnant.
Number 2! Growing up, I always thought parents sit down to carefully plan how they want their kids spaced and their body responds to this plan. Ha! I now know that only one thing makes babies so you can't be "walking" that path and think a baby can't be made. Did I say growing up… Continue reading Yes, Mummy! You are pregnant.

The Early Weeks of Pregnancy
Most of, if not every resource on pregnancy will tell you the first trimester is the most critical stage. This is when the baby's body structure and organs are formed. A very delicate time it is and also the time when most miscarriages happen. Interestingly enough, it is the time when no one knows you… Continue reading The Early Weeks of Pregnancy
Okay. It seems I created a wrong impression among my audience with my first post. So point of correction. This is not a story of the present. This is a story of a journey that began last year. My baby is now a big man. Lol. So, two days after that Sunday, we found our… Continue reading Antenatal Care
