The One Where We Found Out We’re Pregnant


Me and hubby have been together 11 year this year.  We got married in 2016 and we have talked about starting a family for the past few years.  Each time we thought we were close to the right time to start trying life got in the way.  There was always some money crisis or family thing, or I changed jobs etc etc.

This year we decided enough was enough.  In January I decided that I was going to change jobs, it was a hard decision for me because my role had been to set up a brand new online furniture brand Called Mood Collections, on behalf of my employer.  I was taken on initially to plan and execute the marketing strategy, but in the end I actually pretty much set the entire business up myself, with the approval of the board of directors along the way.  It is something I am pretty proud of and I loved what I had achieved.  Business was starting to grow and it was exciting to hear the wonderful feedback from customers and start to get some really nice sales, but unfortunately there were things that just weren’t right for me in the daily running of the business. Therefore I started applying for new jobs and looking for my next challenge.

A New Job

I found a great new opportunity which I started in March.  The company is great and still my current employer.  It’s in the B2B market and the company trades internationally, so there were some exciting new opportunities for me to learn international marketing. Plus they were about to embark on moving over to a completely inbound and content focussed strategy, which I am really passionate about and wanted to continue to grow my experience and expertise in this area.

We decided that once I had settled into my job  and our finances felt more secure we would then think about starting a family. We still had some debts that we were paying off, but wanted to get to a place where we had some savings behind us so that we knew we would be able to provide for a baby when the time came.
