Scrapbooking Pregnancy, Birth And Baby’s First Year

I’ve always enjoyed capturing memories so I’ve got something to look back on. Nothing too loserish or weird like saving ketchup-stained napkins from our first date or holding on to the first condom we ever used, but more in terms of taking loads of photos of places we’ve been and things we’ve seen. This has become even […]

Words I Discovered During Pregnancy – Part 2

A few weeks ago, I wrote the first of two posts about words I didn’t know the meaning of until the missus became pregnant. Part 1 covered A to M in the alphabet and included some bobby dazzlers like Episiotomy, Hyperemesis Gravidarum and Mucus Plug. After the shock of Googling the latter and being greeted with images of […]

Words I Discovered During Pregnancy – Part 1

2014 has been a year in which I’ve learnt a lot of new stuff. Having never really been around pregnancy and babies before, my knowledge was pretty sparse. But fast-forward just 10 months and I can pretty confidently say I know quite a bit about what happens, why it happens, when it happens and who […]

Review: The Original Theraline Maternity and Nursing Pillow

Pregnancy can be pretty uncomfortable, exhausting and demanding. Then there’s the problems that the missus has to deal with too! I jest of course. Having a baby can be hard work. Trouble getting comfy, zombie-like exhaustion and constantly needing to get up to the toilet during pregnancy soon turn into trouble getting comfy, zombie-like exhaustion and […]

A Dad’s Experience of Mumsnet’s Bumpfest 2014

Rather than a normal Saturday of lazing around the house watching football and generally being a slobby pain for the missus, I actually left the house today and travelled into London for Bumpfest 2014 organised by Mumsnet. Not only was this my first trip to the Capital for a few months which brought back unwanted memories […]

The Name Game: Choosing What To Call Your Baby

The recent announcement that Katie Price called her fifth child “Bunny” got me thinking about how difficult it was to come up with a name for Baby L. The 36-year-old model obviously had trouble finding inspiration too and evidently hit upon a creative streak with a recent visit to Pets At Home. If you’ve not yet come up […]

Awesome Pregnancy Time Lapse Video: 204 Days In 10 Seconds

During pregnancy, I took a photo of the missus each and every day with the plan being to create a time lapse video from the first day through to the last. Now that I’ve had chance to play with Movie Maker and create a The DADventurer YouTube page, behold the (I think!) amazing result. Here is the journey from […]

Documenting The Evidence: Final Update

The event we’ve been working towards came in the early hours of Monday evening as Baby L was born in very quick time thanks to the excellent birthing skills of the missus! That now means we’ve come to the end of the pregnancy photos we’ve been taking every day since we found out Hay was pregnant. […]
