BabyCentre UK Blog Posts

Back when I fell pregnant a lovely blogger by the name of Molly (Mothers Always Right) recommended me to the good folk at BabyCentre to become one of their Pregnant Bloggers. I was (obviously) over the moon to get to write alongside some super talented bloggers and I’ve been doing it ever since. In fact it was my one year BabyCentre Blogiversary on Friday and it made me realise that I haven’t actually kept a record of every post that I’ve written (you can see where this is going, right?). And it’s probably a good idea that I do keep a list somewhere because it’s only a matter of time before I say something outrageously offensive and get booted from the blogging crew.

So, without further ado – here is my first years worth of BabyCentre blog posts – in chronological order of course 😉

It’s only looking back that I realise how many posts I’ve written and how quickly the last year has gone! Oscar will be one before I know it!

Kelly is a twenty-something lover of all things nerdy. Cocktails and lie ins are her favorite things, neither of which she can enjoy since becoming a mum for the first time. She writes about everything she loves and loathes (with a little indifference thrown in for good measure!) She also blogs over on the BabyCentre about life as a new mum.
