5 Reasons the First Trimester of Pregnancy Is the Worst!

First trimester woes during pregnancy are by no means a new struggle, but it really sucks a whole bunch.

First trimester of pregnancy woes

You may have seen my previous blog post where I revealed just how Daniel and I told our family that we were finally expecting our very own Player 3!

Watch: The Big #BabyBean Announcement!

If you haven’t checked it out, there’s an adorable video where you can watch my family freak out, cry and generally celebrate with us. It’s super cute.

At the time of making the big reveal, I was only about 5 or 6 weeks pregnant. The euphoria of finally expecting was strong and the full effects of the first trimester had not yet hit. But boy was I in for a surprise…

Shoes from Superbalist

Welcome back or hello for the first time from me, Robyn aka the Uphill Writer!

It’s no secret that I’m a millennial and that means you probably already know a few things about me right off the bat. One of those things being that I love online shopping. In fact, I love to do most things online if it’s at all possible. And I know I’m not alone.

I work online, have photos printed online, order my rides with Taxify or Uber online, and yes, I even purchase clothing online. More specifically, shop for shoes online! Another thing I absolutely adore doing online is “window shopping” or rather, “adding to cart”. (Although that’s not quite as snappy as “window shopping” is it?)

If you’re in the browsing mood, take a look at the glorious shoes from Superbalist I recently added to my cart and perhaps you’ll feel a little inspired.

Currently - Instagram blogging Update

Hello friends, family, and gentle humans!

It is I, the Uphill Writer. I have returned after a brief hiatus from the blog after a (short) Instagram experiment.

At the start of Feb 2018, I wrote a post where I chatted about the little experiment I was going to attempt. You can read all about it here, but basically, I was going to attempt to blog exclusively on my Uphill Writer Instagram account for the rest of 2018.

Here’s the thing, I failed at that Instagram blogging experiment. Ha! I did a few posts (which I’ll list below), but overall, it was just too restrictive. There’s a character limit, no formatting, and it just didn’t scratch that blogging itch the way I had hoped it would. So I’ve decided to kick that idea to the curb and I’m back here on the blog where I belong!

I’m on holiday at the moment so I thought I’d do a quick ‘currently’ catch up post now that I’m back.

News, Plans & Experiments

Experiments at Uphill Writer

Hello friends and readers! Welcome to 2018.

Seeing as February has arrived (and we all know that January is the first pancake of the year), it’s time to make a few changes around here!

What would life be without a little fun and change? Boring, that’s what. I’ve decided to do a little experimenting on the blog, because I can. This is my blog after all.

Basically, I’ve been struggling to blog lately. As much as I love it, I simply get really busy and in the list of things that need to be done, blogging has fallen to the bottom. Another issue I seem to be having is that my laptop is for work and my PC is for gaming, which means my brain won’t get into blogging mode! I realise this is weird.
