Pregnancy and Blogging
Wednesday, 11 May 2016
When I found out I was pregnant I had a huge list of what I wanted to write through out my pregnancy. In my first and second pregnancies I never wrote down how I felt each week or anything else, so I really wanted to do something different this time. I do write my weekly pregnancy updates which I am glad I have stuck to since I was 12 weeks pregnant. I have written a few other pregnancy posts too such as my wishlists, how I found out I was pregnant, how I feel about being pregnant, how my girls reacted that they were going to be big sisters, a few posts about the scans such as my gender reveal and so on. But as the weeks or even months are going by this pregnancy is getting more and more uncomfortable, which is making it hard to keep on top of my blog.
If you are a regular reader you may have noticed the past two or so weeks my blog has changed a little. I always liked to update my blog daily and have atleast one or two new posts a day. My last post before this was written 3 days ago, which is not like me at all. I have four reasons for this:
• I am too uncomfortable to sit and write
• I am too tired to think of anything new to write
• When I get time to blog I just feel exhausted
• I have old posts written up in drafts but then I need to take new photos!
You may be thinking with #3 what do I mean when I get time to blog? As I have done it before and always kept on top of it. However, with this pregnancy I am having to do two visits to hospital a week to keep an eye on the baby because of Obstetric Cholestasis condition I have. It is around a 30 minute journey there and back. I try my best to catch up on blog work around those appointments but when you have two children to keep happy, school runs, a house to tidy and clean it can be quite hard and by the end of the night you just feel exhausted.
I feel that I had a lot to write about in the first trimester and a bit through the first half of the second trimester. But the second half of the second trimester I found quite difficult. I just didn't know what to write about. I have got a few posts planned for the next coming weeks and they also include some exciting reviews too. I can't wait to share them all with you.
Can any other pregnancy bloggers relate?
