Well, obviously the last time I updated here was May 2015!!
I have had my internet disconnected the past 4 months due to financial difficulties but we have finally set up our broadband which was connected earlier on today
I wasn't so sure about coming back to DA as it doesn't appeal my interest anymore through being too busy to even think about it.
I have an almost 6 month old son now!!!
He means everything to me and his name is Lucas! as you can imagine motherhood has swept me away from all the things I once did but all for the best
I had a difficult pregnancy but the labour, birth and after birth was very traumatic for me and my family. My partner thought he would lose us both as I hemorrhaged and Lucas was having breathing difficulties. I spent 4 days labouring, my hind waters had gone (meaning meconium was in my waters) I was 13 days overdue! Lucas's position was 'back-to-back' one of the most painful position for a baby to be birthed! I found out from a midwife I have abdominal separation when she examined me afterwards. but hey... I think 4 days in labour, almost 5 days of no eating or drinking and almost 7 days of no sleep is quite astonishing! I managed on gas and air & diamorphine AND I was not allowed to move from one position on the bed the WHOLE time due to having contraction and heart rate monitors strapped to my stomach!! that was frustrating, I actually am not sure how I managed it but my adrenaline kept me going.. I was close to getting an epidural, and I had 2 hours for my baby to crown, after 2 days of speeding the labour up with IV drips, if he was not to have crowned within that time period I would have been forced into having a cesarean. Luckily not!!
My baby was born Sunday the 8th May 2016 @ 9:42am weighing just 7lbs 1oz!!!
I am still struggling with healing.. I am suffering severe anemia (through blood loss post partum) back ache, stomach ache (through abdominal separation) Migraines, Postnatal-Depression and many other things. I can barely leave my home now through anxiety, depression and pain as well so that sucks
but all is good and well aside from those things, I am trying to get back to my old self but I am taking it slow and only going out if i truly have to and can do so.
Well that is a rather small update of one thing!
I do have quite a lot of photography to share here too so I had to come back for that too!
Keep your eyes peeled for what I have to share FAQs
