But I had a coil and so surely I couldn't be preggers? I was scared about becoming a mother for so many reasons. But no matter how many books I read or people I spoke to, I couldn't seem to make peace with the idea of motherhood. So here are ten things I want to share: CHERRY'S TOP TEN BABY SURVIVAL TIPS 1.
Whilst I was still overwhelmed at the thought of becoming a mum, I was at least reassured about labour. Over the past 12 months I've had to become more organised, and it can be hard getting enough sleep, but I've learnt lots along the way. BUT there are now so many options available to make it more comfortable, there really isn't any reason at all to be scared. You are eating for two but in QUALITY, not quantity.
Second hand/hand-me-down/borrowed stuff is brilliant. They grow out of/get bored of most things in 5 minutes anyway. Don't listen to people who spread doom and gloom about parenthood. The structure of your life will change, but you can still be the same person.
And check back here next week as Cherry will be writing a blog post about meeting brides of different ages for her next programme Cherry Gets Married, which you can watch on Monday 20th September at 9pm. I watched Cherry has a baby tonight and I have to say that I was terrified of labour but watching the show has made me feel so much better about it all.

From young people wanting to go under the knife, to guys wanting want to bulk up, the season has raised a lot of questions around today’s obsessive body image culture.
BBC Three won big at the annual Royal Television Society (RTS) Awards, taking home six awards in total.
If it's so bad, why do so many people have more than one?!
Cue an outpouring of vitriol and bemusement on social media, with hundreds of trolls queuing up to point out that BBC Three is not a "real" channel. BC Three can’t be found in the TV listings because it doesn’t have a schedule as such.
You won’t come across it while flicking idly through the channels of an evening.
We’ve had a blast writing the BBC Three blog but this will be our last update as all future posts about BBC Three shows will now live on the TV blog.
We’ll be continuing the conversation on our Facebook and Twitter pages, so don’t be a stranger.
