Well well well, this is new. Actually posting something on my site in months, actually being well enough to be awake and actually feeling half alive. It is a case of one step forward a million steps back for me, as the last time I wrote (over 2 months ago) I thought I was on the mend. Wrong. Wrong. WRONG.
Sooooo, we are having a baby. Its not been the easiest pregnancy and emotionally and physically I have been through the ringer. For about 4 months I have been bed-ridden (still am), seen countless doctors, taken a billion pills and now call the bathroom my new home. Morning (or in my case all-day-long) sickness is the work of the devil. I didn’t have much outside contact due to me being in such a state and mentally – that was torture. In between then, I have been hospitalised, poked and prodded with needles and have had about 10 scans with very cold gel on my tummy. Yuck.
I have only this week been able to wake up and walk around myself – I still can’t do much and on bed rest, but hey – I’m getting better (I hope). I now realise that I take for granted a whole lot of things – I haven’t been to the park to walk the dogs in months, not been out of the house (except to the Dr’s) and I haven’t eaten a decent meal without seeing it in the toilet bowl a while later.
Over the course of 4 months, I’ve lost so much weight that I now have to try and make up for it but scoffing down milkshakes – believe it or not, the Dr recommended this. I’m trying to eat – but I’m not there yet. Everyone says this is a joyous time – ermmm, NO. Not for me anyway. Not yet. I’ll let you know when things change. On a great note, Cous Cous (baby’s nickname) is having a jolly ol’ time in my belly so I’m at least grateful for that.
I will have a new baby category up soon, as I don’t think everyone wants to read about a leaky boob or baby poo all the time when it starts. And no, I won’t be going goo-goo ga-ga all the time (50% of the time maybe!) Haha. This impending motherhood thing is still new to me, and I haven’t had any time to really sit and comprehend it all. Its a whole new ball game and it will be very interesting I’m sure. 2014 is going to be very different.
For now, I have to eat a kit kat and drink some milk (very hard work but someone’s got to do it!). I promise I will try and write everyday – or at least every other day (unless I’m dead). Whomever said pregnancy was easy deserves a slap and a half from me.
On the brighter side, its only 67 days to Christmas. Deck the halls people!
Happy Friday everyone!
