I don’t always remember to do these throwbacks, but it’s nice sometimes to reflect isn’t it? So I’m jumping on the throwback Thursday bandwagon and sharing some images from the past…

In this digital age, where we all take photos on our phones and upload them to Facebook, we don’t always look back do we? We don’t have photo-albums to pull off the shelf and flick through, in the way we used to (well I actually have made a point of printing photos of our little girl now and making proper real albums out of them!) and holding a real photo, something tangible, seems quite rare.

So throwback Thursday is a nice reminder to actually sift through all those photos on your computer and pull out some of your faves. So that’s what I’m doing today…

Throwback Thursday Pregnancy Bump

As I sifted through the folders and folders of digital photos on my laptop, I discovered an instagram folder that I’d obviously copied-over from my phone when I got a new one. It made me instantly smile as it was full of photos of me when I was pregnant, which seems so long ago now. It was packed full of bump shots and selfies, as my body was changing and I was discovering how it felt to look and feel pregnant and was so determined to document it all so I’d remember (I’m so glad I did!).

So this post is dedicated to those photos – throwback Thursday pregnancy – here you go…

It’s taken me a while to post about being a mum and the journey of pregnancy, labour and new motherhood. But I feel I’m at a stage, 18 months later, when I’m reflecting on the experience and can write about it. So if you’re a mum, or mum-to-be or just generally interested in the whole growing-a-baby thang, then stay tuned as I’ll be writing a lot more about my personal experiences of motherhood and bringing up a child.

Are you a parent? Did you document your pregnancy at all? I’d love to see your journey!
