You cant be perfect all the time

Its true. And trying to be is nearly making me ill. Hand in hand with a new baby is remembering that jobs need to be prioritised and its ok if the washing doesnt get done. Having a three year old around the house three days out of five in the week is HARD; tempers get frayed..breathe. Timings go to pot. Ask for help. Crying is ok, as is chocolate. Lack of sleep is a killer but fingers crossed, wont last forever; babies are meant to wake, adults are not.

It will get better.

I want my mojo

I remember this phase from last time..wanting to be creative but not having the oomph to do it. I want to crochet, to scrapbook, write letters, bake, play with my planner. I want to have a go at Project Life, read....anything! Not only do new babies suck your energy, they also suck your creativity. Im waiting eagerly for its return!

First fireworks

Last week we took the girls to see fireworks. Rosalind was not bothered at all. Eleanor just wanted a glow stick!

All change

Well its been a tough ten days. Sleepless nights go without saying. Add a grumpy three year old to the mix and it turns into a very stressful time. We understand shes feeling pushed out, as hard as we try not to. It will be ok. Give it time.

Baby spam

Friday was the big day but unfortunately I was last on a list of 4 mummies to be. Due to emergencies, I didnt go down until 1430, which meant not having eaten for 20 long hours.
Rosalind Sophia Irena Kaye was born 1535 weighing in at just over 3kg, or 6lb 8 in old money. She was a proper folded in half breech, and my first view of her was a pair of wrinkly feet.
First night was a rough one, lots and lots of pain, next morning was awful as I had a lot of Oromorph in my system. But we go there eventually and came home today.
Ella loves her new sister and even the cat is fairly interested.

My heart..

Firstly, apologies for the terrible light. Its a grey day out there.
Secondly, look! I managed to work out how to scrapbook with a huge baby bump. And about the bump no less! It seems lap is the way to go.
I used bits and pieces from my Quirky Kit Lite, both recent and older, as well as adding project life cards and some stickers from Paperchase.

So close...

So as of today I am 38 weeks and 4 days. Two days ago I received the frustrating news that baby two is breech, asher sister was before her. Unfortunately this now means my choices for labour are basically non existent, as the NICE guidelines state that breech births need to be delivered via c section, and consequently, there are very few midwives and drs experienced or willing to attempt natural deliveries.
Not a happy mummy bunny.

Great Western Brick Show

Or 'lego show in the Steam museum which was overpriced'.
This was suposed to be the biggest lego and brick show in the country, held in the Steam museum. So really entry got you into the museum and the lego show. There were lots of impressive models, things to buy, and of course, big steam trains.

Fed up

This has not been an easy pregnancy. Sickness, indigestion,  back pain, hip pain, SPD....I can't wait for it to end. 35 weeks now so max 5 to go. As I'm a previous c section I can only go a week over, so I've a provisional date for another couple section. I hope it doesn't come to that.
I will miss these moments though, Eleanor telling baby sister a story.
