Hello Lovelies, I cannot believe our little Florence is 5 weeks old!! It feels like yesterday I was writing my Birth Story! Everyone warned me with Mini Meldrum how quickly time passes by & when I stop and think that she is turning 3 in 2 weeks time it blows my mind!! The last 3 years have disappeared in a blink of an eye. I am trying to treasure every moment with Florence as I now know first hand how quickly the tiny newborn-ness vanishes.
Well I have almost completed week two of flying solo without Mr Meldrum, I am glad it has come to an end… as much as I have coped & it has flown by I am more than ready to share the task of being a parent to a newborn & a toddler. I am officially knackered!! I receive a lot of e-mails (that are lovely) but paint me out to be a supermum – that I am not. I just have to do it, don’t get me wrong I love it… but I also LOVE the 2 days a week Safiyah is in nursery & when 7pm rolls around every night I am thankful!
We have had a good week our antenatal reunion, birthday party, meeting friends for coffee, play group, meeting the lovely Laura from Liparazzi & Sarah from The Knott Bump & Us & their gorgeous kiddiwinks.
I’m feeling good aside from the tiredness that comes hand in hand with having a newborn. I’m still loving being a mummy of two little ladies & enjoying seeing them together.
last week I mentioned having a Dr’s appointment r.e post birth issues & she confirmed I have a prolapse, so I’m now waiting to hear from a physio… the things we put our bodies through to create beautiful little babies! Hopefully it can be improved & the physio helps me. It’s not painful just very achy at the end of every day or if I have been standing for a long time.
I am still producing milk… I can’t believe it, not a lot but enough that I can feel it.
The big question…weight.. I am now 9 stone 2 it’s slowly coming down. Roll on my 8 week check to get the all clear to exercise – although the research I’ve done into running with s prolapse isn’t looking promising! I promise I will film an update this week so you can see how my tummy is looking now since a few of you have requested this!
