Bert and Olive is a blog about my life with my brand new bundle of joy. It wasn’t supposed to be in this format though, the life I nearly had was very different.
Bertie was a twin, and when I found out I was pregnant I wanted to record my daily life and new mummy experiences of having twins, and the trials and tribulations that ensues.
However early on in my pregnancy I developed severe Pre-Eclampsia which saw the twins arrive into the world three months early weighing 980g and 365g and ultimately took the life of my beloved daughter and sister to Bert, and nearly took mine.
Life through the looking glass is different now, so this blog is intended to be about my experiences of having a premature baby and the steep learning curve of being a first time mum, as well as the successes and pitfalls we go through together.
This mummy lark is a new career for me, minus the suits and stilettos.
So I am going to embrace the moment and give it my best shot.
