All About Me.

I made the decision to begin writing this blog after becomming an avid reader of blogs around 12 months ago. It originally begin with fashion & beauty blogs but finding out the happy news that I was going to be a mummy in Novermber 2011, I rapidly became interested in fellow 'mummy' blogs. I wanted somewhere to document the whole 9 months of my pregnancy so I'd never forget a single detail (now i've not experienced labour yet but i'm sure I won't forget that in a hurry)! so, 'A Whole 9 Months' was born. Even if no one else reads this, I hope that my boy will be able to look at it in years to come and see that he was loved and cherished from before he was even a 'twinkle in his mummy's eye!'

This is me. Well, I say 'me.' The usual me doesn't look like I'm smuggling a beach ball up my dress but I'm Jess; 27 weeks pregnant and carrying a little boy.

I live in Merseyside with my 'partner', Mr C. I say 'partner', he still hasn't put a 'ring on it' and he's way too old to be my boyfriend! ;) I am an adopted scouser; moving here at 18 years old for University, meeting Mr C then never moving back! Much to Mr C's dismay and despair(!), I still have a broad Yorkshire accent which to the amusement of him & his 'Scouse' family, causes me to elongate my vowels in a way that they find hilarious. "Noooooo", it's not funny! However, Yorkshire is still 'home' & a place that I will always love.

At this point, I would love to be able to say something interesting like "I enjoy water skiing, deep sea diving and have climbed Mount Everest twice" but I can't. To be honest, I'm not that interesting... I even had to lie on my University application to say that I was an avid skier and an accomplished horse-rider. I have, once being skiing; that was when I was 10 and on a dry ski slope. To be honest I put the skis on, fell on my arse and spent the rest of the time there! Coupled with the fact my 'accomplished horse-riding career' is more 'donkey rides at Blackpool', I am forced to admit that on paper, I'm a bit of a bore! Realistically, I enjoy: shopping, eating out at restaurants that we cannot afford, watching Corrie with a big bar of chocolate, long bubble baths and pointlessly chatting on the phone with friends for hours. See, not particularly interesting or exciting at all! :)

I am a qualified primary school teacher but currently working in education administration whilst waiting for the arrival of our son! I am taking a year off to be a full time mummy then will hopefully return to the classroom when our little one is a year old.

My blog is to document the journey of my pregnancy. Hopefully one day, when my son is not so little, he'll read it and see how he came to be. (Albeit, not the actually 'coming to be', making bit though! I'll spare him [and you for that matter!] those details!) He'll see his mum before she became a smock-wearing, grey-haired worrying bore and find that; once upon a time, she used to be 'cool' herself!

I hope you enjoy! (& son if you're reading, i totally WAS cool!)


Well since writing the above, ALOT has changed! I'm no longer 27 weeks pregnant and looking like i'm smuggling a beach ball under my dress (although i'm still carrying a few extra pounds!), I am now a proud mummy to Freddie; my beautiful big boy. Weighing 10lbs 1 1/2 oz and born on 2.9.12, we are settling into our new life together in a flurry of nappies, feeds and cuddles. I could not be happier and I honestly don't know what I did without him. It sounds cliche but it's like he's completed me as a person. He's now 5 weeks old and weighing 12lbs 10oz and I hope to continue to update you on our adventures together!
