This time around my birth experience was going to be better. Planned. Calmer. Better for all of us. You can catch up here with my first birth story with baby girl.
Planning the birth started nearly 5 months previously. I saw a consultant who went through all the risks of a VBAC with me and we both came up with a plan much safer for baby and myself. This was to have a planned c section. My blood loss the first time around was much too high of a risk to try a VBAC and then if it happened to turn into another emergency c section was not worth it.
There and then back at the start of December I got my date through for the planned c section. I knew the date of my baby’s birthday! April seemed so far away at that point.
On this week’s New Mum Stories we have the lovely Jordanne from The Life of a Glasgow Girl. Her first few weeks were hard as a new mum but now 2 and a half years later she cherish’s them more than ever.
Over to you Jordanne.
Hi, My names Jordanne and I blog over at Thelifeofaglasgowgirl.co.uk
Laying in bed watching my little guy sleep I thought to myself, How did I get so lucky? How on earth is my little man so perfect and I get to be his mum? Life is just, perfect.
Fast forward 10 minutes and I’m about to rip my hair out. I’m about to scream my head off into the pillow and run away to a beach a.s.a.p My perfect little guy is spewing…. Like, Projectile vomiting all over me, all over the bed and all over the floor. He is screaming which in turn upsetting me because I can’t move fast at all, My Gran isn’t home and my other half is at work. I feel helpless, I feel like I can’t help my child and it’s so unnerving. Sitting in a pool of sick, with my child in my arms and an excruciating pain shooting through my c-section wound I can’t help but think, This IS motherhood.
Welcome back to our second week of New Mum Stories. This week we have Jules from PonderingParenthood telling us about the struggles she had in her first week as a mum.
Over to you Jules.
Hi, I’m Jules and I blog over at PonderingParenthood.com. My blog is a mixture of reviews, guest posts and writing from the heart about life with my hubby and baby girl, Little M.
I suppose I would be considered a new mum, as I’m writing this on the eve of my baby daughter being on this planet for ten whole weeks. However, while on paper that seems such a relatively short period of time, it already feels as though this little girl has been in our lives forever.
When I was pregnant with baby girl I wish I had thought to use Bio-Oil for my stretch marks. I used a stretch mark cream which really wasn’t very good.
Anyway I have been using Bio-Oil recently and it is a wonderful thing. Although I am very proud of my c-section scar I’m using the Bio-Oil to help reduce the purple colour and to help it heal completely. I’m grateful to Bio-Oil for the chance to have tried it.
