Best pregnancy blog? Only with your help…

Best pregnancy blog

When I was writing about my pregnancy with Baby Girl it didn’t cross my mind that I’d be sitting here in a year’s time with a huge grin on my face, after finding out I’d been shortlisted as a finalist in The MAD Blog Awards. But that’s exactly what’s happened, because I’ve made it to the final six of the Best Pregnancy category of the biggest blogging awards in the UK.

If you’re not a blogger, hear me out. The MAD Blog Awards are like the oscars of the blogging world. More than 5,000 blogs were nominated this year, which is why I can’t quite believe I’ve managed to make it to the final. Of course blog awards aren’t the be all and end all but, for me, to find out people actually bothered to nominate me means a huge deal. If you’re one of those people, then thank you.

The awards ceremony takes place in London in September, at a fancy-pants hotel. I may even dig out my heels and don a dress that doesn’t require easy boob access for breastfeeding – imagine!

But this is where I need your help. If you enjoy my blog and liked reading my posts about pregnancy then I would LOVE your vote. Voting is open until Friday 16th June. It’s quick and simple to vote – simply head over to the MAD Blog Awards voting form and cast your vote. It’ll take approximately thirty seconds, if that.

In the meantime, check out my pregnancy section to read some of the posts I wrote when I was pregnant with Baby Girl. I covered all sorts of topics, including what happens when pregnancy doesn’t go to plan, my nerves about how I’d cope being a mum of two, the tricky subject of choosing a baby name, getting used to my changing pregnant body shape, my views on “bump spam“, and our unusual pregnancy announcement.

I also write about the things helping me through each trimester of pregnancy, with my “pregnancy saviours” series, and, the thing I’m most proud of, I founded the #BlogBumpClub. This was a weekly linky where other pregnant bloggers could link up and share their own posts about pregnancy. The linky became a vibrant community all of its own, with many of us exchanging presents once our babies eventually made an appearance.

Here’s a video I shared on the last ever #BlogBumpClub post that I hosted. And here’s the post that I still can’t read without a little tear in my eye – all about Baby Girl’s birth.
