Everything about being a first time mum is daunting. The fear of the unknown leaves so many questions in your head, and what you need to pack in your hospital bag is definitely one of them, (and even knowing when to start packing it).
One of my many cravings whilst being pregnant has been the infamous “school dinner cake”. You know, that delicious spongy cake with icing ands sprinkles. My face would always light up when I saw them in the dinner queue. After searching the shops and failing to find them, I concluded that I’d just have to make them myself which soon became a bit of an addiction as I’ve made four lots within two weeks. (I shared the majority of it, don’t worry). I’ve played around and put my own touch on it and thought I would share the ingredients and instructions with those of you that want to make this yummy cake.
There is simply no hiding from the fact that sickness in pregnancy is common. In fact I don’t think a female can be sick in the morning without the world presuming they’re pregnant.
I found out I was pregnant on the 2nd November 2o17 after taking two positive pregnancy tests. I wasn’t actually surprised to see two very strong lines on each test. because by the time it came to taking the tests, I already knew I was pregnant and would’ve been more shocked and confused if it was negative. It is still hard to explain how I felt at the time. It was just really surreal. It wouldn’t sink it, (and it didn’t for quite a while).
