Things went sshhhhh, but I'm ok.....

Cohen has came down sick again, it's been pretty rough going here, we've had several nights of screaming, whining and whinging in pain and him flopping around in our bed. A call out from a home visiting doctor and the poor mite has had viral ear infections and croaking cough.


Then throw in the mix Sarah who has alternated the other nights flopping around in our bed cutting her two year old molars. I kid you not it's been all fun and games here......sense the sarcasm? As one can imagine for an about to pop heavily pregnant mum such as myself it's all eaten away at my physical, emotional and mental reserves to cope. Hence yesterday saw me have the big cry I think every heavily pregnant mumma in waiting has where she just releases it all into the universe and just lets the tears flow. Yeah that was my day yesterday and resulted in me taking sanctuary in our bedroom for peace and comfort and my own company for the vast majority of the afternoon and evening.


My hospital bag has been given some consideration this past week. I've chosen a mix of comfort and vintage items so I can still mix together some semblance of outfits in hospital that make me feel myself and lift my spirits in hospital. I'll share with you exactly what I've packed, just as soon as I'm back on track this week.

Exciting things have been happening behind the scenes on the business and blog front this past week, which make me smile and reassure me about all my time, effort and vision I've been putting in throughout this pregnancy.

We are getting close to baby entering into the world. I am booked for a c-section (reasons are complex and PTSD related), but my body is giving me signals that this little man of mine might not make it to the date that is booked. Time will tell, these little beings choose their own stars to fly in on. If I've gone quiet here on the blog and/or other social media, I won't be far away. Either I've needed to focus and recenter myself again or I guess it's possible I could be off finally having a baby. But either way we will hold tight because I might just need to wait it all out and be patient a little longer yet.

Wishing you all happy and magical weeks. Hoping I'll be on deck sharing and getting back to popping around to your blogs and saying hi. Big love to you all.

I hope that everyone is well now - there is so much of the coughs / colds/ temps going around it's had to stay away from it all.
Cutting molars isn't fun either - you poor thing. I am so glad you have Big V to support and help you. If there is anything I can do this week to help you know you only need to shout.
Crying is good for the soul - the release it probably just what you needed. I have had a few crys lately and it's amazing how much better I feel afterwards.
Have the best week and take care !
Love, hugs and heaps of positive energy!
Me

You face so many challenges looking after two precious souls whilst baking another one! You are one amazing Mumma & I'm inspired by your strength & attitude. I can't wait to follow Mini V's journey & hear all about the arrival. You will no doubt be the most stylish woman on the maternity ward! Much love to you. Xx

I'm sorry to hear your little ones aren't well and you've had a tough week. If there is anything I can do, you know I'm only a phone call away! I'm really looking forward to meeting Mini V soon. It won't be long now, but I hope that Master V and Little V are all better before that happens. xx

Oh gosh Trudie. I'm so sorry to hear it. I just wish I lived a bit closer but I probably wouldn't have been much help to you last week because I was a bit like Master V except for the ear infection. I think I might be on the mend from the cough but I'm in catch up mode. Always makes it busy once you've been sick. Hope the lead up to the birth is a bit easier for you now. Am thinking of you.

Anne xx

Thank you my sweet. They're all slowly on the mend. My only cure for my complaints is to have baby. So it's a waiting game. I'm beyond thankful too, to have the Big V he has been getting home from work and most days I retreat to the bedroom so I can be more comfortable. Bless that man. X

Oh Hun thank you, you're so precious. Life, loss and experience after losing Elle and Meg just just taught me that things can be worse. Since I've experienced the worst in losing them I find it easy to see the positives and get on with things despite the challenges.

I can't wait to share Mini V with you all too. X

Just the waiting now. I've got everything crossed that everyone is well, it would sure make life a little easier.

Goodness Anne I hope you're taking care of yourself my friend. Your always in my thoughts too. I had wondered why you were a little quiet this past week, now I understand. Be well my friend. X

Rest. Stay relaxed. Give yourself time to breath. I know easier said than done with two little ones not well. But try to remember to give your body the time it needs. After all you are doing a very important thing! You are baking a whole new human!!!! Sending much love your way

Oh you poor love, what a week. Hope bub hangs out for the scheduled arrival, it sounds like you don't need anymore surprises. Make sure you take care of yourself!!! xxxx
