I only recently heard about the A to Z Challenge and I immediately wanted to get involved! Basically, every day in April except for Sundays, bloggers doing the challenge publish a post based on a theme of their choice, following the letters of the alphabet. Given my current situation, pregnancy and birth would have been an obvious choice but I write about that anyway so wanted to challenge myself to something else: Self care.

As a busy mum, pregnant, blogging, up until today working, moving house and all the regular life stuff, self care can go out of the window easily. Once baby girl arrives, another dimension will be added and I think that this challenge will really help me to focus on looking after myself as well as the children and my responsibilities in life.

I’m hoping to write and schedule as many posts as possible, ready for as and when I do go into labour, but at the same time I won’t beat myself up if I miss the odd day otherwise that rather defeats the point of the self care theme!

If you want to find out more about the challenge then you can read all about it on the A to Z Challenge blog. My first post will go live tomorrow so I’d love for you to let me know what you think!
