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.


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 2: 1st Trimester || The Cuddle Blog

After the euphoria of finding out we were expecting our first child faded, We were hit with the reality that comes with pregnancy. Google became my friend that stuck closer because we hadn't announced to anyone except family which meant I couldn't talk to anyone about it yet. I started dealing with all the symptoms I was having which was Nausea, irritability (I couldn't stand staying in the kitchen), tiredness, food aversion.

Pregnancy Diary 1: How we found out || The Cuddle Blog

Hello Everyone, 
Thanks for visiting my blog today. I decided to share my Pregnancy diary, lessons I learnt in each of the phases and it will be in 5 parts. How we found out, 1-3 Trimester and Birth Story. I hope you enjoy it.
Before we got married, we talked about having kids and our desire was to wait a couple of months before we tried, that was the agreement but God had other plans. 
We were not trying and we were not not trying. To be honest, I was terrified of getting pregnant because I knew the responsibility it comes with - or I thought I knew - after the first 6 months, we already had family concerned for us but we were not worried at all as we had been working on ourselves and getting to know each other better to focus on. Looking back now,  I am glad we had that time before we got pregnant.

Watching my husband be a Dad || The Cuddle Blog

I could feel the excitement when I told him we were expecting our first child but it was nothing compared to the Joy he exuded when he held his Son in his arms for the first time. I saw the twinkle in his eyes "The first sign of my strength" He would say.

Why was it so special? Asides the fact that the miracle of the birth of a child is always so special, My Husband had never thought this was going to happen, He got married a little later than most people in his age group when he least expected it and about a year later found out he was going to have a baby. It was surreal which made him all the more grateful for the blessing of a beautiful boy. While I was busy thinking I wasn't quite ready to be a Mum, He was over the moon and making fun of me.

It's been 3 months!

When we got home from the hospital, Our new baby woke up every 2 hours to feed what we did was at night the would be a bottle of expressed milk and whoever woke up first would feed him. I would nurse him…
