The sleeping pattern of a baby I thought was erratic but for the first couple of nights William sleeps from midnight to 6 without a feed and my husband and I silently poke him to check that all is ok. He’s fine, of course he’s fine but he’s testing us, making us feel comfortable before the sleepless nights begin…..

I seriously don’t know where the last 2 years have gone, one minute I’m pregnant and being rushed into have a baby at 28 weeks the next I’m trying to tame him!!

On 10th April 2016 we took a pregnancy test first thing in the morning (as instructed by the clinic) and it came out positive! I was trying so hard not to get too excited but I couldn’t help it, I sat on the edge of the bed trying to calm myself down. This was it, this was the start of it and I would sit down for the whole nine months if that’s what it took. I phoned the clinic that day and booked a scan. We had to wait 18 days till we went in and in those 18 days I didn’t do any stretching or lifting, I quietly told my boss at work and she was thrilled for me and put me on sitting down jobs until I was ready to tell everyone (telling everyone in the meantime that I had back problems).

So yesterday the W’s childminder told me that he’s been climbing the stairs successfully so last night we put him to the test and he accepted the challenge! Husband put him at the bottom and I watched from the top as he climbed up to me before we gave him a bath and put him to bed.
