You Gotta Have Faith Faith Faith…

you gotta have faith faith faith

…In your medical teams. Right now I’m having a repeat of when I was pregnant with Ra-Ra but this time they don’t seem to be wanting to help me. The first time around my obstetrics/midwifery team was fairly small as it was a relatively small hospital, since then departments have been closed down and everything has pretty much been shifted to the hospital up the road who is part of the local trust. Now most people in my local area or at least my hometown don’t have much faith in the bigger hospital and I’ve been witness to this both with colorectal and now obstetrics. Read more

Oh Hospital Bag, What Do I Take For A Caesarean With An Ostomy?

hospital bag; what do i take for a caesarean with an ostomy

So a lot of women have the dilemma of what do they take to the hospital for the birth of their baby. Now it’s definitely easier after you have done it before, but what about when you are having a caesarean? or if you have a stoma or like me both! Well as I have had a caesarean before and took far too much stuff for the fact I was in for two nights I have a better idea this time round. I will only really be going into detail about the stuff for me because any list for baby you can find on the internet will be pretty much what I would write…vests, an outfit or two, a blanket, a soft toy that sort of thing. In fact your hospital may even provide you with a list of items to bring for baby so if in doubt ASK!! Read more

Importance Of Being Honest…with A Health Visitor

the importance of being honest with your health visitor

So as everyone knows by now I am pregnant, 31 weeks to be exact. Last week I had a scheduled visit from a Health Visitor, that I genuinely forgot about! So cue me answering the door in my dressing gown, hair tied up from the night before and more than likely make up all over my face! But the health visitor Amy didn’t bat an eyelid at me looking like a tramp or my messy house. She just smiled and asked if I wanted her to come back another time. I just thought it’s probably best her seeing me like this so she is under no illusions when she comes to see me when Button is here. So this post is another super honest post about feelings and shiz, but ultimately why you should be honest with your health visitor because they aren’t all doom and gloom like they are portrayed in the media.

Third Trimester Pregnancy Pains

third trimester pregnancy pains

So I decided that I should maybe do another post on where I am at with my pregnancy; be warned it wont be a short read and I am very honest in my posts. I feel I should add a little disclaimer that these are my personal experiences and every pregnancy is different, What I am going through in this pregnancy may not relate to you or even be something you ever will!

Mirror Mirror On The Wall

mirror mirror on the wall

Or for the purpose of this post phone phone propped up against my xbox one! I have mentioned a few times before I have never really liked what I saw when I looked in the mirror. Having eating disorders and mild body dysmorphic disorder to this day are a struggle to deal with but I still keep moving forward.
