Bettina goes on maternity leave

My maternity leave from work officially begins on Monday, so it’s only fitting that I also start maternity leave from the blog now. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve started to understand why mat leave is a thing, and I feel incredibly fortunate to have a fairly generous policy at work: things do get exhausting as you grow bigger, especially now that it’s also hot. I also find it harder to focus, and pregnancy forgetfulness is definitely real for me.

Taking a break now feels right. I’m not due for another few weeks, but I’m going to start focussing on getting everything ready for our new arrival.

I won’t return to work until February next year, but I hope to be back to blogging earlier than that! I’ll definitely keep you posted on how things go once I can go back to exercising after the birth.

Thanks for reading along, and “see” you soon!

    1. Thank you! We’re really excited too and at the same time can’t believe we’ll meet this new person in just a few weeks’ time. 🙂


  1. I somehow want to say “Bon Voyage” as you embark on this whole new journey. Sending wishes for a wonderful next few weeks and an easy labor!

    1. Thank you! In a weird way, when I left my office today (I’ll be offsite tomorrow and Friday), it did feel like going on a holiday.

  2. Enjoy.
    If you are in Canada take the benefits over 12 months, even if you decide to take 18. Best to get the money up front!
    Rest and relax.
