Maternity Leave

Can’t believe how quickly this has come around, it’s crazy!

I am very thankful for the rest though, I am still feeling very sick and tired, not really eating much and generally quite grumpy.

I wish I could enjoy my leave a bit more, I have severe limitations to what I can do now ☹

I have managed to start sorting Lenny’s old baby clothes though, so not a complete loss! It’s hard to remember how small they once we’re, some of his baby vests could fit the cat!

I wonder if this baby will fit in them, or if he’s going to be bigger? X

Motivation

I usually lack motivation, and find it hard to get going, especially now at seven months pregnant.

But the last couple of days I have an itch in me that wants to do something, and I’m not sure what it is. I feel the need to do something creatively or to feel like I’m making a difference, but I have no idea what it it.

I have some unfinished projects I need to finish which is a start. But that’s not enough. Once I figure out what it is, I will be happy!

In Sickness

So last week resulted in a visit to the labour ward after being sick a stupid amount of times, and not being able to keep even water down.

I had felt rough all day, puked in the work car park and then about another 9 times before the out of hours doctor sent me up the hospital for some good old iv fluids and anti sickness drugs.

I thought it might be the start of hyperemesis again, but it seems it was just a bug as OH has been sicky too this week.

As much as I hate being in the hospital, I did feel tonnes better a few days later, the best I have done this pregnancy.

Thank you NHS for making me feel human again 😊

Back Again

Rather than apologise for being awol again, I’m going to quickly summarise what’s been happening over the last few weeks and will venture further into these topics in future posts.

1. 20 week scan confirmed boy #2!

2. Extra growth scans will be necessary before the caesarean.

3. Was admitted to hospital (again!) with severe vomiting and dehydration.

4. Sleepy sleepy tired 💤

These are many things amongst others, but mainly just the usual pregnancy related funness! X

And then there were four…

After being absent for a while, I am so excited to announce that baby number two is due in August 😊

I’ve been feeling generally quite rubbish. Thankfully I haven’t been sick like last time, but the never-ending nausea and exhaustion are really getting me down. Even simple tasks are proving to be a chore! I feel jealous of the people that never get ill when they are pregnant!

I wish I felt like eating healthy, but all I want is junk food which is making me feel worse. I’m going to be the size of a whale 🐳
