Lets take it back

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

So going forward with the whole pregnancy/ motherhood vibe. I thought id jump back a few months and start from the beginning. Well maybe not the beginning of my pregnancy, but more so when the problems started to occur.

Ok so here we go.

I had a pretty amazing pregnancy for the first 6 and a bit months..
No  morning sickness, I think i spewed once through the whole thing. Pretty lucky really. Obviously I was tired, I think most women are. There is a little person draining every ounce of energy and nutrient from you. It's kind of expected to be tired.

I suffered from restless leg syndrome, which was crazy annoying! Imagine having to move your leg non sop because if you stopped you got this creepy sensation and couldn't rest! That was lame, it always came on late at night and trying to get to sleep was a bitch! But after having a check up with my obstetrician she advised to just take some panadeine at night and it seemed to work a treat. 

So yeah all smooth sailing

I was due for another check up with my obstetrician and she made comment that she was concerned about how small my belly appeared to be. Now I had constant comments leading up to this point from friends, family and colleagues about how "small" my belly was. Being pregnant, there is nothing more you really want then to start seeing a bump and to know its real. You know what I mean? To see visual evidence that there is a little human growing in you! It makes up for the tiredness, and every other symptom you have through the 9 months. 

However my "bump" was not growing as much as my obstetrician would have been happy with. She advised she wanted me to have another fetal growth scan, and she was slightly concerned.

Obviously that sent me into a bit of a tailspin and I automatically panicked. 

I was advised on my next scan that everything was "normal" , however when returned for my next checkup it was different news.

My doctor and midwife explained to me that Jack was below the average for his abdominal circumference, which only clocked in at 33%. 

We sat and discussed options, and it was decided that if this didn't improve over the next couple of weeks, I was to be booked in to be induced as it was likely Jack was not receiving the nutrients he required from my body.

Obviously the minute we left I burst into tears. You don't expect to have news like that, even though it was not life threatening as such, it was certainly less than ideal, and cause to be concerned by everybody involved. Mainly Paul and I.

Changes

Sunday, September 7, 2014


Sooo the blog is undertaking some changes...

Why??

Because life is all about changes huh?

Without them, it would be rather stagnant and boring..

Plus in the last year my life has been a bit like a roller coaster.

Sooo many ups and downs..

and I'm going to spill it all here.

Along with my old direction on the blog of outfit posts, food posts, and inspiration shots. I'll be adding  a new aspect to the blog.

Being a mum!

Expect more content on the following..

All my mummy trial and errors, product reviews, mum icons,wish lists and probably a rant or two on how I am or maybe not coping with motherhood.

Because my life is more about making sure I have a stockpile of nappies, not having vomit in my hair and managing to get a load of washing on than going to an event or having a new pair of shoes.

I kinda found it hard with maternity wear throughout
my pregnancy, mainly because it was well into the 6 month mark
Before my bump looked actually visible to the general public and nothing
Really fit all that well.

But now that it's out and about I find myself living in the Sportsgirl track pants !
Soooo comfy!

A few weeks back, 3 wonderful ladies decided to organise a blogger garage sale. Even though I haven't really blogged all that much in the last year. I jumped at the chance to join in. Partly because my wardrobe in overflowing, but mainly because it was an excuse to mingle with some wonderful ladies before my life literally changes forever.

Adelle, Bonnie and Laura done such a marvellous job organising everybody and gathering supplies. It really did look picturesque on the day with all the pretty streamers, a punch & snack table,  Mink the cutest french bulldog I have ever seen and most of all, so many items of glorious clothing for sale.

It was probably a good thing that I no longer fit into regular clothes, as I would have probably spent the money that I managed to make on the day, by purchasing more clothing for my full wardrobe.

In my opinion it would be wonderful to do this on a regular basis, its great way to snap up a bargain, and item of clothing you have lusted over on someones blog and to just be merry and have a wonderful day socialising with fellow bloggers.
