A Mummys View

Telling it like it is

Realising individuality

Have you experienced the heartbreaking moment when you go to leave the room and for the first time ever your little one lets out a wail like you have never heard before?

Back when my daughter was only 4 months old I experienced this for the first time, the dreaded Separation Anxiety, the point at which your child realises they aren’t in fact part of you and are their own person and that mummy does come and go from time to time! For me it was quite an intense time as it became quite extreme and the hysteria and trauma that came with it went on for a significant period. No advice given seemed to work and one Health Visitor even called it the worst case she had ever seen!

I was recently asked to write a guest post for Babyhuddle and this was the story and experience I chose to share, in the hope that my experience could help other mums out there. If you would like to read more about it and how I dealt with it and eventually overcame it please hop on over to my post on Babyhuddle to read more.

Keeping Your Pregnancy a Secret in the First 12 Weeks

You’ve taken the test and it’s positive. It’s official, you’re pregnant! You want to scream it from the roof tops, jump for joy and dance down your street, but tradition has it that you wait till you’re given the all clear at the 12 week scan.

How do you hide your news for all those weeks without bursting at the seams (literally in some cases) or giving it away with an ashen face and mad dashes to the ladies room!?

This week I am guest posting on Wriggly Rascals with my experience and suggestions of how to avoid spilling the beans to help other mums-to-be wanting to know how to keep their news a secret. Please do hop across and take a look at my post, see how I kept schtum and complete the survey and share your own experiences too to help others.
