Carly over at Wads is running a Mummy Blogger Carnival over at hers about you top 10 Surreal Mummy Moments, is a mini competition and the prize is tickets to the Ideal Home Show, the closing day is today oops!
To be honest though the tickets would be nice I just like the ideal of writing this post. I didn’t realise how many surreal moments I had had, but here is my top 10 count down.
10 The pregnancy test – My other half realised I was pregnant before I did and sent me to do the test, to my shock he was right I was indeed pregnant. We had only been trying for 2 months.
9 That 1st scan, that’s when it becomes real that there is a baby in your tummy, we both shed a tear.
8 The first kick and my god could she kick. She was fidgety then and fidgety now
7 Calling her by her name, the first 100 times! It’s so strange to call her by a name we have given her
6 The first time she said ‘mummy’ my heart melted
5 The first smile that isn’t wind
4 Telling people that I was pregnant, then telling them that my daughter had been born
3 Bringing her home and putting her in her moses basket, so overwhelming
2 Holding my baby for the 1st time, the most amazing experience ever
And finally at Number 1 the most surreal mummy moment so far....
Finding out the sex of BG, we didn’t find out of the scan. I remember lying there with drips in both arms (I had a c-section) they took her away to check her over and I had to ask if I had given birth to a boy or a girl!
I’m sure there are a lot more moments to come
