Favourite Pregnancy and Baby Posts

Josh and I got married in 2007 when he was nineteen and I was twenty. I'd just graduated from university and Josh was still right in the middle of his degree.

 
I'm sure many people questioned the sense in getting married so young, but I do not regret it at all. The first couple of years were stressful at times as we both had a lot of growing up left to do but I love the fact that we have grown up 'together' and were able to enjoy several years of marriage before starting a family, while still being relatively young parents.

However, one thing that Josh and I found hard about marrying young is that we often seemed to be a few life stages ahead of our peers. When we were trying to work out how to be a husband and wife most of our friends were living in shared houses enjoying the student lifestyle. Just as our friends started to pair off and enjoy marriage we were plunged into the unknown of parenthood. While we have many wonderful friends (and I don't think you have to be in the same life stage as someone to really get on) we have often missed the company of people our own age who got what we were going through because they'd 'been there and done that'.


However, 2015 seems to be the year for babies! We are so thrilled that several of our friends have announced their pregnancies, or have had babies recently. I think we know of about ten couples who will have a baby by the end of the year! It will be lovely to share in their experiences and to feel like we have people around us who are experiencing the same things as our family.

All these thoughts of babies made me have a look back at my blog posts from when I was pregnant the first time around and in the weeks straight after Ivy was born. Here are some of my favourites:
