A Little Update

Hi guys

Long time no blog eh? Yep I know that I pretty much disappeared off the face of the earth for no apparent reason but I honestly couldn't get any motivation together to get posting. I'm still not 100% sure that the motivation has come back tbh with you. So, whats happened over the last year? Quite a lot honestly!

In October I found out that I was pregnant and my plan was to sail through pregnancy and document it on this blog. Ha. I was so ill I ended up being hospitalised 4 times - I was suffering with Hyperemesis Gravidarum which now I'm on the other side I can wholeheartedly say is much much worse than childbirth. My vision was to be all radiant and glowing with cutesy little updates. This still makes me chuckle. I plan to do a post on my experience of HG when I feel up to it. I actually started a written journal when I found out I was pregnant and the first trimester makes for some pretty harrowing reading. I remember my Dad coming to visit me in hospital and crying on him saying that I thought I was going to die as I felt so terrible.

Anyway, I'm trying to keep this short and sweet but clearly that isn't going to happen. On the 15th June 2016 I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy who we called George. I was convinced that he was a girl so I was pretty shocked when James announced to me we had had a little boy. He wasn't so little actually he was 9lb 3oz which is on the large side seeing as I was all bump! I actually put 4 stone on during pregnancy and most of it fell off in the days after delivery. The delivery itself was quite eventful but again I'm not up to sharing that just yet I don't think. I went down the Hypnobirthing route which was drug free which was my goal until I ended up in Theatre. But as I said, that's a story for another time.

I know a lot of my readers are particularly enamored with Karl so a quick update on him. He's doing really well and has had no further medical issues *touch wood* and is a happy little bunny. He isn't quite sure what to make of George tbh with you, they're just not interested in each other.

So, that's where I've been! Hopefully I will get back into the swing of things but I don't really have a lot of free time these days so it will be as and when.
