Borrowing Blogger's Bumps - Spark's Charity Bump Campaign

Beautiful aren't they?

Sparks Charity asked me to share my bump photo and talk about my bump, and what it meant to me. My hopes, my fears.

But I didn't get one. A bump that is.

I delivered my baby at 27 weeks, I didn't get a bump, I got a baby in a box. Pre eclampsia is one of the conditions that Sparks is researching, the very reason my bump was robbed from me.

Did you know that in the UK over 3000 babies will die before their first birthday.

1 in 30 babies are born with a condition that may affect them for life.

Sparks are laumching their Bump campaign and there are some fantastic ways to get involved, find out more here.

Sparks fund research in many conditions affecting mums to be, babies and children.

Every mum to be deserves that bump, and every baby inside that bump deserves a happy and healthy future.

I can't thank enough all those who let me borrow their bumps. I have more who offered to help too, and will share these later in the week. If you have a bump picture you would love to share, please get in touch.

Huge thanks to the following.

    All the bumps look amazing and as I'm also the Mum of an extreme premmie, I'm very happy to support this campaign x

  4. Beautiful bumps, hard-hittingly emotional blog, fantastic cause Kylie. Do you want more bump pics? I have one of Natty before we knew she was Natty or had downs syndrome.

  5. My bump with Daisy (my premmie) was huge - that was because I had a condition called polyhydroamnios - too much amniotic fluid. It made me look like I was full term with twins at 27 weeks, it also meant that I physically could not eat or sleep. If my waters had gone Daisy's cord would have prolapsed & I would have probably haemorraged too. It meant I stayed in hosp until they could safely deliver her at 33 weeks - very poorly, very full of fluid & needing to stay in nicu for 8 weeks afterwards...and that was only the beginning (as you know!!)

  6. Thanks for including my bump! Beautifully put together and for a very worthy reason.
