Welcome To The World {Baby 𝓐}


Hi guys! It's been a while! 

On the 22nd of April we welcomed our son {Baby ð“} into this world after a crazy but short 6 hour labour (labour story coming soon!) he was born healthy and beautiful and as perfect as can be. He is also partly to blame for my absence on this blog and I hope I can make up for the lost time. 

These last 11 weeks have been insane! With my daughter {Little â„’} turning into a Little Demon at the arrival of her brother and with him attached to my breast every few minutes it's no wonder my hair looks like a cactus on a good day and my t-shirts (that belong to my husband and I've been using since I found out I was pregnant) have all sorts of stains on them ranging from spit up, breast leakage and something brown I seemed to have gotten after my daughter hugged me that I hope is chocolate and no I won't be checking thank you very much!

So where do I start? Well first of all you are never prepared enough to have a baby even if it's your second or third or even fourth baby, each baby is different and special in their own way and can surprise you in lots of different ways too, the first nappy change my son and I experienced left me in tears of laughter as my son sprayed me and the bed the moment the nappy was lifted and even after I finished up and dressed him again he peed which somehow wet his tummy and left his nappy dry leaving me confused and slightly concerned but a few demonstrations by the nurse later and we were accident-free and changing nappies without any trouble.

Needless to say it's been an amazing few weeks and incredibly difficult too, every night I plan to sit and write this blog but can't help but fall back on my bed and sleep for what little time I have before either one of my kids wake up, but finally I have them both down for their afternoon nap and here I am! Yes, my sink is filled and the laundry is in piles asking to be washed but sometimes Momma needs some Me-Time!
Hopefully as my son grows I'll be able to blog more and update you guys on how we're doing, subscribe for more upcoming posts including Breastfeeding advice, Sibling Rivalry and also Pregnancy and Labour stories too. That's all for me today, I know it isn't much but I hear a little squeaker waking up.

Until next time, good bye.

The Lady In The Other Hospital Bed

Storytime! I hope you're sitting comfortably because this is a story you'll want to read, there's a moral behind it, and it's true! Here we go... The news of my first pregnancy brought me so much joy; I was thrilled to be pregnant and to carry life, I was excited about being a mum and having a bump, I was looking forward to the 'pregnancy glow' and feeling the little kicks and hiccups I'd heard so much about from other mums. I was not prepared for what came the next 8 months and it certainly wasn't what I had expected. From about week 6 of my pregnancy, I had the usual symptoms including feeling tired, bloated and what I thought was regular morning sickness. But it turned out to be Hyperemesis Gravidarum  (pretty sure I spelt that right - I hope) in layman's terms it's basically morning sickness but throughout the day and every day and to the point, you can't swallow solids - including the prenatal vitamins and barely any water thro

The Joys Of The Last Month Of Pregnancy!

Hi there! I hope you could sense the hint of sarcasm in the title because I think the last month of pregnancy is by far the least joyful out of all the months. It comes with a rollercoaster of emotions from excitement to disappointment to excitement to disappointment to 'yes! finally!' to frustration to exhaustion to hopelessness and finally relief. Whenever a friend of mine would get pregnant and reach the last couple of weeks I always tell them 'Keep a diary of your last couple of days', 'Get some sleep while you still can' and a lot more advice that I now know are complete nonsense ! I don't know how I was allowed to keep believing that I was making any sense at all! It's only when you actually hit that 36/37 week mark that time slows down remarkably! The hours of each day stretch longer and I can swear the week has at least 10 days! And to make matters worse while you watch your due date slip further away each day you are constantly on edge and

Positive Parenting - Can It Be Done?

I'm a positive person; at least I think I am.  I wake up happy and go to bed happy.  I always look for the silver lining or the bright side of things.  However, I am a mum of two and with that responsibility comes a great sacrifice; my patience and positivity.  Now my happiness relies almost entirely on how strong my coffee is...how many times it had to be reheated and why...whether I had to repeat myself half a dozen times and the only thing that could have possibly made my day positive was if the cleaning fairy paid a visit, took all the mess away with her and left some coins (or notes!).  Of course my children bring me joy and happiness. Seeing them after a long day makes everything better, makes everything sweeter and makes everything worth it. But it's not always fairies and unicorns and glitter. Some days are rough. And it is those days that really test my patience and unleash the negative, angry, complaining, grouchy mummy - that doesn't help thoug
