Realised I have been neglecting this as the last time I posted I was 25 weeks pregnant!
I am now the proud mummy to a gorgeous 7 week old girl called Mollie who was born on the 14th of January 2012 weighing 8lb 4oz.
I can’t remember life without her and she is my absolute world.
I was induced on Friday the 13th, the day before my due date, as I had severe SPD which caused me to be on crutches for the last few months of my pregnancy! I couldn’t walk without being in agonising pain.
My labour went well. Induced at 10am and after 3 lots of morphine, an epidural and shit loads of gas and air later, Mollie arrived at 02.17am
So here I am now, 7 weeks later, introducing the best thing that has ever happened to me.
Mollie Janet Haldane-Hanlon
And having some serious cravings for bonfires?!! Drove past one the other night and my god it smelt so good I just wanted to chew on warm burnt wood….? Sounds rank when i type it out but my god the thought of it is enough to make my mouth start watering!
In other news, I am feeling bigger than ever recently. I found pictures of myself the weeks before I fell pregnant and my face is so much skinnier and I have a great wee ass! Now I’m a two tonne tess and not enjoying it. Never felt so unattractive in my life so I’m thinking a big pampering session is desperately needed.
I have also been a non smoker for 20 weeks now! wowww time has flown by, only 15 weeks till my little starfish is due! What a scary thought but I can not wait to get my ass to the gym and get in shape again. I am determind to look better than I have ever looked before after she is born and regain some confidence.
Stretch marks on my back and boobs will need to get out of my life also, that is something I just can’t handle…tiny little purple reminders of how quickly my body is getting bigger. I also can’t put my own shoes on anymore unless they are slip on, which isn’t really convienient due to it being winter soon and will be needing to wear boots! oh dear.
Today! Feeling a bit strained recently, the pain from my pelvis has gone a bit but I still find it uncomfortable. The baby physio classes I went to taught me how to get up out of bed and such in the morning which is a bit of a pain in the arse having to remember, especially when you have just gotten up, but it’s something I have to remember as to not rip my stomach muscles.
My bump has gotten a bit bigger, but I’m still not showing as much as I thought I would be.
As of Monday I am restarting my driving lessons also, not sure when my theory runs out but some point in January I believe, which is also when Mollie is due so it will be in my best interests to try and pass I think. which means I have roughly around 16 weeks to resit my lessons and do my test. shitting it! I hate pressure!!
Oh well, I suppose it would mean I could pick up my car from my dads and drive it down to mine sooner too! Just need to get a new battery for it considering it’s been sat in the barn next to the tractors for a while now. Poor wee car. Needs a good valet also as every time I have driven it I’ve let all the dogs pile in with me and come for a drive, so it’s full of muddy paw prints.
Another thing I have realised that I can’t do so well anymore is paint my toe nails or put on my shoes! Definatly not comfortable at the moment. Hopeing the next 16 weeks will go fast as I am so bored waiting on her!
Last week out for lunch with Ashley and her little boy Dylan.
To all ladies who think when you are pregnant you just put weight on to your bump!
oh no no no
As you can see from me, your face fills out, your boobs get rather big (I have gone from a B cup to a DD and they are STILL growing), your bump gets bigger, and your ass will get huge! I have never had as big of an arse as I do now, and before hand my ass was still a bit big. Colin is loving it, I am hating it.
Make sure you stock up on Bio oil! I have gone through a whole bottle of it already and I still have 16 weeks to go, in which I will probably balloon out.
I am so angry! At absolutely everything. I have found myself despising the general public and losing faith in them after the 23 weeks I have been pregnant.
People seem to ignore common curtosy and be so self involved it actually scares me.
You can clearly tell I am expecting and people still push right into me and push me out of the way.
Apparently the fact I have a big baby bump also gives people the right to stare at me. I found myself yesterday confronting someone about this by saying “Problem? nah???” That’s not me! I don’t say these things to people but they just anger me so much!
I also can’t sleep at night due to heartburn. I have never had heart burn in my life before but this is so bad it’s keeping me up till 3am. My sleep is already disturbed by constantly waking myself up when I move and my pelvis/back hurts, but it is disturbed yet again at 6am by Colins alarm going off in my ear, then I am finally awoken at 8am by a boy who delivers a paper to downstairs every morning, SLAMMING the door. TWICE! No matter how hard I try to get back to sleep after this it just does not happen. I am close to going out and chasing after him screaming abuse!
Have spoken to Colin about ever falling pregnant again and I can safely say I really don’t think I want to be. Adopting might be a good plan for us I think but then again, a newborn is the most gorgeous little thing in the whole world. I can’t begin to explain how excited I am about meeting my beautiful little Mollie!
I’m just counting down the weeks until she is due, and I have 16 and a bit to go!
Mamas and Papas travel system which we are were bought as a gift from my mum! £570 for the whole thing which is
- car seat
- carry cot
- adaptors for car seat
Definatly recomend going to mamas and papas! A bit more expensive than some places but always have good deals on, and come with a garuntee that lasts a year the day that the baby is born! If anything goes wrong with it also, they will send it away to get fixed AND send us a courtesy pram sorta thing!
We were origionally going to go to Mothercare as they have even better deals on for travel systems price wise but we then learned that they also may be going into administraition which would be the worst possible scenario, especially if we were going to be going through the baby price plan where you can pay up over a certain amount of time and recieve the pram at the end of it. Imagine paying £500 and then the company going bust and you wouldn’t get your pram AND would of lost all that money!? LAST thing anyone needs!
A few of the outfits, shoes and vests I have got for my little miss. That is a very small chair, not giant clothes ha!
