My little Joey bear is currently full of cold, coughing a fever and generally feeling pretty pants.
My SPD is still causing me a lot of pain and well I’m just pretty hormonal at the moment. Anything can make me cry and little things are really getting to me. The sort of things that usually I wouldn’t even give a second thought. I’ve unfollowed so many people on Facebook / I am having a lot less patience with stuff people do/ lack of effort from certain people and seem to just have this different perspective where I think, I’m not making effort with that person anymore or actually your negativity is annoying me 😂. Maybe it’s a good thing!
I guess at 5.5 months pregnant it’s getting to that point where there are a lot of changes going on, the hormones are up and down – my skin is just awful! It’s never been so bad, which doesn’t help when I am feeling like I’m ballooning quite rapidly and losing a lot of confidence in myself as it is. I love my bump, my body is doing an amazing thing to grow our little lady & it’s way to forget this. At times like this I remind myself how lucky I am, what a miracle this is and how stretch marks, growing hips and bum are all part of what my body needs to do.
It’s really important to take the positives from each moment, whether challenging or not. We think this will be our last baby to complete our family so I am really trying to just enjoy it all, the good and the bad.
With Joey being poorly. I laid and watched him sleeping for ages. As sad and as hard as these poorly times are, they also allow for me to reflect on so much. My little 2 year old is growing up. Watching him sleep as he wants to be by my side and calls for mummy. I need to just take these moments in, cherish them and lock them up in my memory box, because one day he won’t want me when he is poorly. I won’t be able to lay next to him listening to his little snore, ananalysing every single feature on his beautiful face that at these times makes him look like my once little round faced baby. Getting teary over his little freckle he gained by his nose on our honeymoon. 😍
I love him so much, I will always protect him, be here when he needs me and forever put him first. He is going to be an incredible big brother.
With 17 weeks to go I’ve been thinking about how hard having a toddler and newborn will be but these times, amongst the emotions are a reminder of how quick time passes us, how each day we can never get back. Enjoy them, take them in ❤️ every part of them.
