Here’s the baby!

January 18, 2014 8 comments

Hello everyone!  Long time no post.
So, I finally had my baby on January 7th, a little boy weighing 8 lb 4 oz. I went into hospital Sunday morning to be induced and then after hours  and hours of labour and 3 hours of pure pushing, I had to have an emergency caeserian as his head wouldn’t turn n he basically wasn’t coming out the natural way. Ouch!
He’s now 11 days old and I love him so much.
We called him Henry James. 
The weight is still dropping off and I am down to 11.9 stones,  73.9 kilos. I cant even remember what my lowest weight was last year- but I would like to weigh 10.5 stone by the summer.
I have not been eating particularly healthy but am trying to get some fruit and veg in every day and I am drinking a lot of fluids.
I will be starting dukan/ hflc again soon, I want to slowly give up the rubbish so it’s not such a shock to my body- im breastfeeding and feel quite weak sometimes so dont want to punish myself too soon!
I haven’t checked your blogs much and I cant promise I’ll blog regularly- but I’ll do my best!   I have missed blogging and reading blogs and I’ve just been reading my old posts.   It’s great as there’s so many things u don’t remember- so it’s nice to have an online diary.

Take care all and blog soon

He’s the cutest!

September

Hi everyone!

I haven’t blogged for AGES! Ihave no excuse either, I’m just being lazy.

I have not weighed myself for a few weeks, I have kind of forgotten about it. This is probably bad news as I should be taking extra care with my weight at the moment.

I am now 26 weeks pregnant, only (ONLY!)  14 weeks to go.  So 14 weeks until Christmas! Yay I love Christmas!

Food wise, I have not been eating particularly well, ‘normal’ food as some would call it. I have indulged in sweets, chocolate and bread and pasta.

Poo. I did buy some gluten free bread the other day tho!

lately, I cant be bothered to cook, or it might just be this week I’m feeling lazy.

My sister had her baby last Thursday, Alice, who weighed 9 lbs! She is massive and fills her 0-3 months sleepsuit already. My other sister is due in about 6 weeks, she lives in Qatar so I hope the healthcare is good over there! I’m sure it is. 

 College has started again and they have changed the nights to Wednesdays and Thursdays, 17.30-20.30. Dont’ even get me started on the times haha!! At least I get there late and then we finish early, it was horrible finishing at 9pm last term.

So glad this is my last year of AAT. I have one module, one project and 2 re takes to do. I may try to get it all done by December so I can relax and never think about college again once I’ve had the baby.

Health wise I feel fine, my back isn’t as weak feeling (was hard to get up and first few steps was walking like an old lady) andI don’t have pains when I turn over in bed anymore. I don’t feel sick too often either. This is my second trimester though and its supposed to be the best of all three. Will be entering my 3rd soon so I’m sure the gripes will start all over again lol! Ahh the joys of being up the duff!!

Work is draining, but I am being rather lazy lately haah!!

I found out I won’t be doing my job when I come back after maternity leave which is annoying. It means I wont be able to do what I want lol. But you never know whats going to happen. Its over a year away. I am the best at my job so maybe they will want me to do it but we shall see.

 House wise – we still have to finish the kitchen and soon we will get our spare rooms plastered so we can get cracking on those.

Things take sooo long! James is great though and has done so much.

Well thats all I have for now, I’ll weigh myself and let you know tomorrow – make you all feel better about yourselves lol.

Have a good day!!!

 

 

exams food sleep

Good Morning!

Yesterday was my exam day – so glad that one is over. I’m not sure how I did as the results take 6 weeks. It was ‘Financial Statements’ and is one of the hardest we have done so far. Only one more to go, ‘Budgeting’ on Tuesday, but that one isn’t as difficult. So I still have a weekend of studying ahead.

At least I got quite a good nights sleep last night, I got home exhausted after the exam and pretty much went straight to bed to read.

So glad it is Friday too. Cannot wait for a lie in tomorrow…..soon to have no more lie ins. Not sure how I am going to cope when I have the baby, but everyone has to do it so I’ll figure it out. James gets up at 6 every day (crazy haha) so I joked and said he could feed the baby in the morning before he goes to work and wake me up before he leaves lol. Yeah, he didn’t quite agree!!

I can only dream. Hee hee.

I finally went to the doctors yesterday for some hayfever relief. I haven’t taken anything for 3 months but it is seriously killing me now, non stop sneezing, tickly nose and blowing my nose constantly. I had had enough. He prescribed me a nasal spray so I hope that it is ok to take whilst pregnant.

I couldn’t find my lunch bag today, James must have tidied it away somewhere so all I have is a yoghurt and some grapes. Hope I don’t get hungry!

Yesterday was a disaster food wise. I went to the shop to get a salad and some soft tissues and came out with sweets, pain au chocolate and croissants and a chicken and mash pie. Let’s not think about it…………….

NEVER shop hungry. We will go food shopping tonight and I am determined to buy some decent real food.

I actually fancy scrambled eggs and bacon. This can only be a good thing. (lol if someone who believes low fat read that sentance!)

My head is SO itchy at the moment. I tear it apart every night and its quite sore now.  I meant to ask the doctor about it but forgot, plus he was quite cute so if I had remembered I might have been too embarrassed to show him my scabby head.

I was using Selsun, but they stopped selling it, T gel just stinks and doesn’t really help. Does anyone else get this and can recommend something I can use?

The great thing in the UK when you are pregnant is that you get free prescriptions. So glad as it used to cost me £8 per type of item getting inhalers etc.

You also get free dental care – dentist here I come!!!

So there are some perks to this then, apart from the baby at the end of course!

I have one more week of work and then we have a week off. I cannot wait! We are going to France for a few days to see my parents and when we come back, James is exchanging our boiler for the new one he has installed. Yup at the moment we have 2 boilers on the wall hahah!!!

With the new windows and boiler, hopefully our heating bills in winter will drop. Plus with our coal fire, it should really hold the heat in now.

So that’s all I’ve got for today – hope you are all well. Some of you need to start blogging again, I barely have much to read now!!  😉

Onwards we go towards eating well.

🙂

 

A new week

February 11, 2013 Leave a comment

Hello,

On Friday, I only had to work 8 – 10 am as I had 6 hours in lieu and instead of working a couple more for a whole day off  I decided to just go in, as I’d only be asleep otherwise!

It was great! If only I could afford to go part-part time.

So I went home and painted the living room a base coat as it had been plastered the week before.

Breakfasts, lunches and dinners went well. But I am still going mental with treats! Thursday night at cinema I had a few chocolates. Friday night I had chocolate and ice cream. Saturday I had something, I can’t remember now, and last night I finally caved and had bread. Why oh why. It was like I was walking around the kitchen with my eyes shut as I didn’t want to believe what I was doing.  Two toasties later (they were delicious too) ………….

SO today is the beginning of a new week and I will do better. My stomach keeps getting shooting pains, I have a couple of spots on my forehead, I have a few patches of eczema and I’ve gained weight. I’m not in a bad mood yet (heaven forbid I have another week like the last one).

I have preached before about ‘Dont start on a Monday, start now’ and this time I thought ‘I’ll start Monday’. DOh! I need a good ol’ slap!

I will be drilling into myself that it is hard, I will miss the treats but at the end of this week I will feel better.

I must also stop being so vain and remember I want to do this to be healthy too, and not just to be thin.

But the thought of thin-nes is what is keeping me going.

Sorry for the major moan – hope you enjoyed it!! haha!!

My sister saw the print out on my fridge that says ‘Wheat is poison’ and kept singing ‘wheats poison’ in the tune of Nicole Scherzingers ‘Poisen’ haha makes me laugh.

Hope you are all doing better than me, I have to force myself to do a lot of things this week! (like go to college ugh)
