Hi! Im Becky aka The Unicorn Mummy
I’m a mummy of a cheeky 1 year called Charlie, I have a disability called arthrogryposis, and I'm one of the lucky ones who gets to gloat about being married to her best friend!
We live in the seaside town of Blackpool and never run out of things to do as a family.
Im a huge Disney fan and have an extremely addictive personality!
We thought the day of parenting would never come for us. My disability effects my joints and muscles and limits my walking. I had so many thoughts going through my head - can I manage, how will I cope with the pregnancy, how the hell will I give birth.
After trying for 2 years (which I know isn't long in the trying world) we made an appointment at our GP's. We had all the tests available under the sun, including a lovely dye test which included a balloon type tool being shoved up where no balloon should go!
After a year of tests and failed pregnancy tests we decided to chill out a bit. We had our honeymoon coming up and to be honest there was no way I wanted to be pregnant in Disney World! I wanted to go on the ride all the rides and eat all the food I wanted!
What happens when you chill and your honeymoon is 4 weeks away? You bloody get pregnant! It was amazing and now I can actually say I've taken to Charlie to Walt Disney World - technically.
You've come to the right place if you want to read an honest blog from the viewpoint of being a new mummy with a disability.
I cant wait to share my stories with you!
