Me, Being Mummy: 27 Weeks Pregnant!

So… You’d think as this is my second time round I would be aware of the fact that the third trimester begins next week… which of course means I literally have one week left of the second trimester. Well, I didn’t know that fact, or at least I forgot about it and, not gonna lie, the realisation has been a bit of a shock. Shocks are not needed right now. The less shock the better please universe!
It’s not because I am scared of labour and being mummy all over again to a new little person. OK.. maybe it’s a bit that if I’m totally honest. But mostly it’s because of our history with when I had BB. He came prematurely at 35 weeks and was in neonatal for 8 days. At the time I went with the flow and handled things brilliantly but like all things traumatic, the aftershock has come along in waves ever since. Usually when I am reflecting back over our journey so far or when I see pictures of him in his first few days of life. I will have to write a post about it all soon, I have never really discussed how being Mummy to a premie feels and it is something I really should talk about.
Anyway; I explain it all a bit better in the Vlog, with a cameo appearance from my very healthy and very much larger than life  premie offspring who has been flitting between being full of beans today to then being full of drama and attitude. Never a dull moment in motherhood!
I hope you enjoy the video, please remember to give me a thumbs up and subscribe for more, it’s always such a lovely feeling when a new viewer joins up to my corner of the Internet. Makes me feel like less of a fruitcake speaking to myself on a camera view finder and more like I am actually sharing with a person! See you all next week for another pregnancy update ramble! Xx

      Yes indeed, very worrying. But no amount of worry will help or change what lies ahead so am just going with the flow and hoping for the very best 🙂 Healthy Mummy and Baby is all that matters. See you next week! Thank you for stopping by! xxx

      It is natural to think about the previous birth but as you said no two births are the same. I was concerned second time round but it couldn't have been more different. #mg

      Congratulations on your pregnancy. Try to think positively – no two births are the same. Wishing you and your baby a safe labour and delivery. #mg

      Congratulations on your pregnancy! It's hard with your second as you know exactly what's coming! I think it's important to remember that every birth is different, I have had five and know that too well! Good luck, you'll be fine. #mg

      The medical staff should be aware of your past medical history and be understanding. I was blessed to receive great staff and felt listened to. #MarvMondays

      That's reassuring to know… I'm just keeping as open mind as possible and channeling happy thoughts. Whatever happens, as long as myself and baby are healthy then so be it xx

      Thank you lovely, positive thoughts being channelled at all times! Xxx

      You deserve a medal lovely! 5?! That's amazing! I think it is the fact that I'm not ignorant to what it's like anymore so it just plays on the mind and you can't help but revert to past experiences but I will be in labour before I know it and, as we all do, I will get on with it and the main thing is a healthy baby and healthy me at the end of it all. Am sure all will be well, thank you for the luck!xxx

      Exactly! Woop woop! Can't wait to meet him… just hope he is kind to me on the way out!haha! Xxx

      Yes most definitely… my notes could wedge a door open so I hope the staff all enjoy a good read!haha! The team who delivered and cared for my first born were absolutely amazing. I'll be in good hands, I'm certain of it. Xx

      I scheduled an elective C-section with my third child because my second delivery was an emergency situation with 10 doctors working on me after the nurse pushed a red button on the wall. The second child was 10 pounds and too big for me to deliver, but it was too late for the C-section by the time they realized what was happening. My son's heart was failing and I could have lost him so you see why I was worried with the next delivery. But my third child never needed the C-section. She weighed in at only six pounds. She ended up having asthma which some NYU research has now tied to C-section deliveries. My advice would be to hope for the best, because when you prepare for the worst it can backfire. Hang in there. I know it will all be fine.

      Oh honey I feel your stress and completely understand. Adam was born at 35 weeks too. All 3 of my pregnancies were so different. Adam was the only one who needed special care. Aspen's birth was stressful, and Aprils was like the most amazing, beautiful birth ever, like truly almost an out of body experience, I know it sounds nuts but it actually barely hurt. So I know first hand that birth stories can be so different. At the end of the day all my kids are healthy and as normal as normal can be lol. Try some relaxation exercises I really believe they helped with my births and coping with any stress. And enjoy your drink it looked so good! #mg

      Thank you so much for linking up, hope you come back in the new year and share more xx
