Hawaiian themed Maternity Shoot || The Cuddle Blog

You'd think because my husband is a photographer that I would have a lorry load of pictures, when the said husband has a crazy schedule you make do with the time you have. Photoshoots are always a good idea when I am not the subject, when I get in front of the camera, I realise that it is always not as easy as it looks. 

I hassled my dear husband and we had 2 shoots in the course of my pregnancy, the first was at 5 months - when my bump suddenly made an appearance - and the 2nd was at 8 months. When it comes to things like these, I am not the most creative but I am glad for great friends who have my back. My friend chose a theme, bought the props and organised most of the things I used for the shoot. 

We went elaborate for the 2nd shoot, makeup artist and all.  My sisters came over as well! I absolutely loved my makeup, although, I was very tired by the time we were done, I was a happy mama.

Here are the pictures below;

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
