So difficult to get someone to listen? For 14 weeks I have been backwards and forward to the doctors I can’t even tell you how many times! Fraser is 16 weeks old today! At 2 weeks old we went initially… must be reflux, try Gaviscon. Worked for 3 days then the copious amounts of vomit appeared again. Went back… could be an intolerance…. try this Cows Milk Free formula…. didn’t.
Today…. it really is! Today I cannot win at parenting. I feel like its all out of my control. That makes me feel shit. I really am not one for making out my life is perfect. It is far from being doused in the smell of roses!! I generally am a happy person, very laid back and quite care free. But today I do care, today I am not feeling.
Must have items for when you have a new baby?? What would be top of your list?? It’s not cheap this parenting malarkey but I think there are certain things that really do need to be bought to help out!! I asked some lovely bloggers their thoughts plus have added my own in too…. “Ours is the Snuza Hero Monitor as our second son has silent reflux which causes apnea..
My word…. it goes so quickly doesn’t it!!? These first 3 months have flown by! Fraser hasn’t had the easiest of starts but has still been an absolute dream. He was sleeping 4-5 hours a night from a week old. I, as most parents really love my sleep so have cherished this enormously! We have really been blessed in that respect as our older two children were also very good.
My heart is fit to burst with love. I remember when I was pregnant with Izabel I was excited but scared. Will I be a good Mum? Will I be able to do my very best for her? What if I don’t know what to do and fail as a Mum? When she was born… wow! The love I felt for her instantly was incredible! Breath taking! I looked down.
So my due date was the 8th May. My pregnancy was pretty rough from the day I found out to be honest. I had pretty much everything thrown at me this time around. Heavy bleeds, nausea, sickness, SPD, bad back, swollen legs feet and ankles, extra amniotic fluid, gestational diabetes and I was also diagnosed with an underachieve thyroid whilst pregnant! It was pretty eventful to be honest with all.
So… we are back! Had some serious issues with the blog and 4 years worth of work has gone! Vanished into cyber space!! I have now stopped crying and realised that no amount of tears will bring my work back. So we are kind of starting again! So whats new? Well…. we have a new addition! On 28th April 2017 at 12.06pm Fraser arrived into our lives via CSection! He.
September the 15th….. enough was enough. I had been feeling awful for a good couple of weeks. It was time to give in, time to call the doctors!! The horrific pains in my boobs actually had me in tears…. I couldn’t even take my bra off. I was sleeping constantly, actually couldn’t get enough sleep. I kept feeling like I had an upset tummy. I needed answers!! Spoke to doc.
Car all packed up ready, excited kids, hubby and I checking and double checking that we have got everything…. Right!! Off we go! We got about 2 miles from home, just come off a roundabout which takes you onto a dual carriageway towards the M23. Car starts revving as if I have my foot to the floor, all power has died and to my horror I look out of my.
……that really mean so much! Since Xavier joined his amazing new school in April his confidence has grown greatly! It really blows me away. It may only be little things to most people but they are huge to me. He can do up the buttons on his polo shirt…. he can put on his own socks… he eats ham… he actually asked me if he could try a pistachio nut.
