What's your name and how long have you been a mum?
Hi I'm Ash! As of today, I've been a Mum for 12 years.
How was your journey navigating the conception of your child/children?
Our eldest, Kadyn was a surprise lol…I was 23 years old living my best life and didn't even realise I was pregnant until I was 15 weeks along. Clearly I was not keeping track of my periods at this time lol. Our youngest on the other hand, is our rainbow baby & After 10 years, we finally decided to extend our family in 2020, but I ended up miscarrying at 9 weeks. Averie was conceived 3 months later and what was really special is that I went into labour with her a year later, on the same day I miscarried. So our journey with her was really, really special!
Off to brunch, what are we ordering?
If I'm trying to eat well – scrambled eggs on toast with a side of relish. If I'm feeling adventurous – sweet French toast OR fried chicken waffles. Life changing! Oh, and americano with a side of cold milk….always.
How did you find pregnancy? Moments you enjoyed or didn't enjoy?
DO NOT enjoy pregnancy lol. Morning sickness, struggling to sleep and exercise and both times I also found it a little lonely at times. Your friends are off living life and doing everything you normally would, but you're in a different season with different priorities - so it is a little fomo. But at the same time it is just for a season, and at the end you get a super special gift! So the fomo is totally worth it.
