Charlie Plunkettabout this book: The True Diary of a Mum-to-be is the second in my 'true diaries' series of books. I write about the milestone moments in life, my first book recounted my wedding in The True Diary of a Bride-to-be and this book charts my experiences as I tried to start a family with my husband. The book covers all aspects of my pregnancy and I did experience difficulties and suffered two miscarriages before I was blessed with my gorgeous baby boy. It truly was a case of third time lucky for us!
When I was pregnant I read all the celebrity pregnancy books and loved them but felt that there was a need for someone to write from the perspective of being a regular person. I certainly wasn't jetting off on exotic photo shoots and was more concerned at the time that the new flat we had moved into had a fully functioning bathroom in time for our baby's birth! At the end of each week I have included information on how the baby is developing and what pregnancy symptoms a woman may be experiencing, tips on diet, how to write a birth plan and what to pack in the birth/hospital bag as well as recommendations for useful products I discovered along the way.
I found pregnancy a bewildering time in my life and spent a lot of time reading books and magazines on the topic. My hope with this book is to shed some light on some of the strange and confusing moments in pregnancy and to share things I found useful. I cover Hypnobirthing and homebirth in the book and there also is a vegan meal planner.
For my cover I stayed with the polka dot theme of my first book and chose a beautiful shade of yellow as I knew I was having a little boy and felt bombarded with pink everywhere I looked, yellow suits both sexes.
