Time for the 14th Maternity Matters link up! 14th! Wow.
When Jayne and I put our heads together at the beginning of the year we weren’t sure whether people would want to link up with us, but you have. Thank you! We love our little collection of maternity posts and although I may be slow getting around to you all, I do read every single one.
Maternity Matters is just days away from the re-launch! Please follow Jenny (@GreatNorthMum), Chelle (@ChelleMccann) Laura (@Laura_Babykicks) as new members of the Maternity Matters team- and of course don’t forget @MaternityMattrs too! We’re looking for contributors at the moment so if you’d like to write for us please get in touch. Also please tweet me @ghostwritermumm if you’d like to be involved in the pregnancy bloggers roundup I write for Tots100 each month.
And now for the link up. Here’s the badge
And here’s the linky. Please read and share as many as you can!
Time for another Maternity Matters link up, exactly 6 months after it all began. Thank you SO much to those who link up, some of whom have been doing so since the every beginning!
There are new plans afoot for Maternity Matters and I can’t wait to tell you all about them. For now though, I have just one request.
If Maternity Matters has inspired you in any way, or you have felt more able to read/ write/ talk about pregnancy issues thanks to MM please would you consider voting for me as best pregnancy blog in the MAD blog awards? It would mean the world to me. Thank you! Voting closes today at midnight and the form is here.
Now to link up! As always, do grab the badge if you’d like to and do try to comment on as many linked up posts as you can. I do try to get round to them all so bear with me, I will pop by and read your post!
For the last three months of my last pregnancy, it was noted that she was not growing well. They suspected IUGR. My baby was not thriving as expected. My body was failing her. I was failing her. And as much as I grasped onto every tiny increase at every painful growth scan, I knew that it wasn’t enough.
She wasn’t growing enough.
They sliced my belly at 37 weeks and 5 days. They plucked her from the warmth and swept her away. They did their tests with dad watching on and they concluded. Yes, IUGR. Yes, she hadn’t been growing well. (more…)
Time for another Maternity Matters link up, and this is the 12th!
Amazing to think that it’s been almost six months since Jayne and I made the decision to set up this linky ahead of the re-launch of Maternity Matters the site. Which, by the way, is now underway. As part of my #MatExp action for #FlamingJune I have pledged to get Maternity Matters up and running again before the end of June. Watch this space!
As always, please link up as many old or new maternity related posts as you like, and please do share with me when you do that I can RT for you. And if you’d like the badge, here you go.
One last thing… I made it to the finals of the MAD blog awards for best pregnancy blog! This means the world to me, and if you could spare a moment to vote (here) that would be amazing. Thank you!
