Bonjour I'm back - a welcome return

It’s been very quiet here on Little Pickle’s Mom for the past couple of weeks or so, but I’m hoping that’ll change now and we’ll be back to service as usual. I’m also hoping the mood and tone of the blog will start to improve – I’m feeling like I’ve turned a bit of a corner, but more about that another time…

The past two weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind where I made the decision to finish work a lot earlier than I was originally planning to. Back in the early days of pregnancy, I was determined to work as late into my pregnancy as I could to maximise time with Pickle once they were born – I’m sure many women have the same idea! However, in the last few weeks, it became increasingly apparent to me, and those around me, that perhaps finishing earlier would be the best thing. Not just for my own sanity (!) but for the well-being of baby. Thankfully, with the support from my midwife, my doctor and LPD, I feel so much better that I’ve now got some breathing room just to concentrate and prepare for Pickle’s upcoming arrival. I finally took my own advice.

It’s not been easy, and I’m sure further down the line I’ll write about it in more detail – but for now, just know that I’m hoping to get this blog back up to speed and looking forward to documenting this last stage of pregnancy and the first days, weeks and months of Pickle!
