Wow! What a whirlwind the past year has been! This time last year I’d just found out I was pregnant with baby number 3!!!! I had so many mixed emotions and had no idea how I was going to make it work having two young children already with additional needs. I wondered how I’d find the time to fit enough quality time in for each child, I worried how I could afford to have three children, if my house was big enough to physically fit them all in, what I’d do when they were poorly or could I cope with them all when one (or more) of them were having a seizure or a meltdown. It didn’t take me long to realise that the answer to all of these questions was YES of course I could.
It seemed to be the longest pregnancy of all time after this with me being on bed rest for 5 whole months. Drs were telling me that I was going to miscarry my baby and coldly telling me on a number of occasions to go home and rest because that’s all I could do to help my baby.
Obviously, I was a bit of an emotional wreck throughout the rest of my pregnancy and then I needed an emergency C section at 35 weeks due to the cord wrapping round babies neck causing fetal distress. As a result, rescue breaths were needed at birth and my beautiful baby girl was taken away to the Neo natal ward for some extra help to breathe. Once I was finally allowed to see her it was the most beautiful special moment but also scary she hooked up to wires n alarms going off all the time. Looking at her tiny tiny tiny little premature sized fingers she looked so delicate but inside she was and still is a little warrior.
Now im finally healed up from the op and little miss is thriving I can finally get back on track with the things I love doing that define me as ME aswell as being a mummy.
Looking forward to sharing my adventures with you but for now meet my precious little fighter Rosie 6 months 🌹
