The first trimester and the unwritten rule of pregnancy

If like me you ‘just knew’ you were pregnant, well before your missed period, it can be a long twelve weeks waiting for your first scan. I’d taken test after test, waiting for the second line to appear and watching it get darker with each test. We were excited, we wanted to tell the world.. but, WHAT IF?

'Chris and I attended the Babies in Waiting course and cannot recommend it enough.

As a sufferer of anxiety, mainly health anxiety, labour has always been something I have had a phobia/fear of. I always knew I wanted children but felt scared of going through labour. Of course this fear was built up by society “horror stories” or the media; what I'd seen on T.V or films etc.
