Little Suprise…in the oven!!!

Little Suprise…in the oven!!!

So I know you were supposed to be taking a journey with me to better ourselves and get healthier, fitter and happier…but I’m sorry we have had to take a small detour as I have had a little suprise….👶🤰🏻👪

That’s right I am expecting a little bundle of joy very shortly and OH MY GOD am I over the moon with excitement! I am due in May.

My first trimester went by stressful, nauseous and panicky…trying to get through it carefully without harming the baby! Oh and don’t get me started about the exhaustion feeling like you never get any rest at all!The first midwife appointment (at 8 weeks i think it was) was non-exciting and to be honest got no information out of it – just answered A LOT of questions about my history, family history and baby-daddy’s history….yawn!! Not the most exciting of appointments and from my personal experience not one that the baby-daddy would fine exhilarating either. I took my mum and in all honesty it was the right thing to do as she answered most family history questions with me/ for me. Just make sure you know the basics of your partner’s history to answer the questions about him.

What do I think about NHS midwife service?? Well they were nice but didn’t get much important info out of them yet…nothing about my diet, exercise, sleeping positions, what to expect, what to do….what not to do. I had to get my own info myself from Google!! And other mothers.

Not sure how I feel about all this “foods to avoid” – women from earlier generations had healthy babies without focusing all their time and energy on what to avoid…yes of course I agree: no raw fish, no raw meat, no pate :((((( no suishi 😡😡 no runny eggs, wash your salad well, don’t eat too much tuna, no soft cheese, no smoked salmon or smoked meats…and so on! Very limiting, no fun and a lot of stress to go through. As far as i know my mum ate caviar whilst pregnant and cannot see anything wrong with my sister or me! (Well maybe 😜😜)

Right so to sum up, from all this “be careful what you eat”, the nausea, the sensitivity to smell and loss of appetite made me lose about 4-5kgs (sorry I don’t do pounds) so in one sense that was great as I finally got thinner loool! I was quite emotional and stressed coping with work and trying to hide it all until I passed the first trimester but I got through it fine and didn’t throw up once!! Woohooo – I was worried about that as my mum was throwing up non-stop to the point of toxic sickness throughout both her pregnancies. So you see ladies everyone is different and each pregnancy is unique 👌🏻
