The Cuddle Blog || First Post

Hello there and Welcome to the Cuddle Blog.

I didn't give too much thought to life after the Birth of my baby, I just wanted to go through the pregnancy phase one day at a time. It was my first pregnancy and asides what I had read and heard about, it was all new and knowing that everyone's experience was different I really had to take each day at a time because I didn't know what to expect. Since it was my first pregnancy, we decided not to share it with the world mostly because it was a different experience and I didn't want the extra attention from the world, looking back now I wish I could've documented my experience for atleast one person to learn. Which is why we are here...
The Birth of this blog. 


As a first time working mother, I want to document the adventures this new phase of life brings, the highs and lows in the hopes that there can become a community of mothers and it helps or inspires someone out there.

Why The Cuddle Blog? 

I nicknamed my son "Cuddles" when I was pregnant and I've chosen to continue to use that on the internet for him, I figured everyone's baby can be associated with cuddles at one point in their lives so why not? 😉

What should you expect? 

I created this blog to document my experience as a first time mum and I know as soon as I get a hang of things, it can evolve into something better but initially, you should expect life as a new mum, my victories, my failures, my recommendations, my advice, Product reviews etc. Hopefully, it can inspire someone out there. I will be writing and posting some videos too.

Frequency? 

Hmm... This is abit tricky. Truth is I still do not have a routine that is set in stone as my cuddles is still the director and dictator of how my day goes,  but I will try to post at least once a week or once in 2 weeks for now!

Here is a One month update I did from my other blog!

So? Let's get started! If you are reading this, please say hello in the comment section and let me know what you would love to see on the blog.

Pregnancy Diary 5: Birth Story || The Cuddle Blog

"March 10,2017 37 Weeks 
So,  we're officially going to meet you next week! Incredible. "Just like that?" is the question I asked the doctor. This is not what or how I envisioned it but I am grateful, very grateful. At the end of the day what's most important is that we are all safe and not at risk
These are part of the words I wrote in my pregnancy journal less than a week to meeting my little one. I did my antenatal care in a different hospital and husband and I decided to have our delivery on another hospital, I had to register close to my Edd. I started going to this new hospital and because of my height it was recommended to do a pelvis examination. This is not done routinely but from a certain height they recommend this scan so they can know what they're working with. 
This was the timeline. I went in for my regular appointment on a Friday, I was asked to do the CT Pelvimetry scan the next Friday before I came for my appointment which I did. I gave…

Pregnancy Diary 4: 3rd Trimester || The Cuddle Blog

"Feb 9th, 2017 - 33 Weeks 
Wow, it's just amazing how it felt so far but right not, it's here. We have just 7 weeks to go and honestly, it's getting more difficult by the day as everywhere hurts. Lower abdomen, tight tummy, really everything... walking, bending... SIGH
I'm just trying to keep  a positive outlook and attitude towards everything. The last doctors appointment was indicating that you are not in the right position yet, so I have been bouncing on the birthing ball and rolling on it as I hear it help encourage babies to turn. I am trusting God that it will all workout. I will know by next week"

Out of body Mumsperience || The Cuddle Blog

"Mumsperience"?

Yes! I just coined the word.

It is every experience unique to Mums! 
I had an out of body experience. Oh No! I had an out of body Mumsperience. It was less then one month after I had Cuddles and he was on a 2 hours eat-sleep schedule. He woke up sometime in the middle of the night this fateful day and He started crying, I picked him up and just kept rocking him but he just won't stop crying. I was beginning to wonder what could be wrong with him when my husband woke up and asked me
