Write a new blog
|16-6-2009 - And so it begins...
||My mood while writing this blog:|
Firstly thanks for all your comments on my last blog, glad you're all going through the same things and I gave you all a bit of a giggle!
So I have 10 weeks to go now ladies, obviously I'm thrilled that I'm on the countdown now however three things have put a bit of a dampener on my mood today, oh no sorry, 4 things! Three of which are stretchmarks! I have them already! Even after applying bio oil religiously throughout my pregnancy three of the little buggers have crept up at the bottom of my belly. I know I sound horribly vain but they have really upset me, it's not even as if I have my stomach on show ever, only when on hols and in a bikini so it really shouldn't have bothered me as much as it has! They're just so flipping ugly!
The fourth is a dead mouse! I had the paddling pool out last week for my fiances son and we emptied it and shoved it in the corner of the garden, last night it rained really heavily so has obviously filled the paddling pool and I just noticed my dog trying to get in it, went over and there is a baby mouse stiff as a board in there, poor little thing, I'm a nightmare when I see dead animals, it upsets me more than hearing about humans to be honest, weird I know but I always think of them as much more defenceless.
On a completely different note I had my first parent craft class yesterday, bit of a waste of time to be honest, the first hour was about the different stages of labour and signs of labour which I think most of us already knew from literature we'd been given by the midwife the week before, the second hour was a physio, supposedly there to tell us about posture, back pain, cramp etc etc but spent the majority of the time telling us how painful labour is and not to be heroes, take drugs because that's what she did!! Totally contradicted the midwife who is pretty antidrugs! Oh but she has now persuaded me to do my pelvic floor exercises religiously after explaining to me what a prolapse is!!! Good god, I can't imagine anything scarier! The main reason I went was to meet other women in the area that are giving birth around the same time but we were all such a random group of women that I don't think much will come of that, none of them were really my sort of people, I am going to go to the next class though which is a tour of the maternity unit at hospital, maybe I'll get along with some of them better then! The good thing to come out of it is that I am now debating a water birth, they were really raving about the benefits of it, I don't want to get my heart set on it though because there are only 2 birth pools so it's first come first served on the day!
I am at the GP on Thurs to get something for heartburn and hayfever because both have become unbearable recently so I'm really excited about that, I can see a well needed good nights sleep coming up on thurs night!!
Everything else has been pretty boring really, back fat is still attacking me along with armulite and king kong bum! I'm going to the Take That concert next week which I'm sure will be fun, it's the circus tour and I reckon they may well let me join in seeing as though I look like a hippo and I have an acrobat in my stomach! Nursery is almost there. Still arguing about names, although we've told some annoying relatives that we're calling him either Hercules or Sparticus which has caused a bit of a stir!! I think it'll most likely be Harrison though. Chris has started a new business alongside his old one which is bringing us in a regular income which is a huge relief because with the other business we never knew when the next cheque would come, not ideal when there's a baby that needs feeding etc!
Anyway, I'm rambling now, I'm off to attempt some gardening and catch a few rays!
I hope you are all doing well, sending you all smiley, non stretch marky magical dust! (More magical than stupid bio oil anyway!!)

- Tuesday, 16 Jun Well first of all, am very sorry about the stretchmarks, I can understand how u feel as I am completely paranoid about them - Everyday I slather on cocoa butter & then use bio oil & am always on the look out for them! I also am debating a water birth as I have heard so many good things about them recently, my friends sister had one & apparently it can be extremely relaxing as well as reducing tearing (sorry if tmi) Sorry about the mouse thing as well, I'm not as much emotional at the minute as incredibly angry all the time - pregnancy has a lot to answer for!x fiona101
