Post-Baby Weight Loss Journey – Week 1

I started Weight Watchers last Monday and today was my first proper weigh-in! I lost 3lb!! Woohoo. Go me! I do realise though that the first week you tend to lose more than you usually will and will be happy in future weeks to only lose 1-2lb. I have been counting all my Pro Points every day and initially decided to not use the 49 points extra that you’re allowed…

The Start of My Post-Baby Weight Loss Journey

Today was a big day for me – I not only took Little Man for his 6 week check up with our GP but I also signed up to Weight Watchers. I did Weight Watchers after having LP and lost all my pregnancy weight plus a little bit more. You can read the story of that weight loss here. I am in the fortunate position that when I was at…

Transition from Cot to Bed

I realised recently that quite a big event in LP’s life happened recently, at the grand old age of 21 months, and I didn’t blog about it – I think having a new baby has overshadowed a lot of things and so I’ll be documenting them as and when I get around to it. Up until we found out we were pregnant again, LP had the ‘baby room’ in our…

Father’s Day 2013

Tomorrow is Father’s Day. Last year I wrote this post. It contained letters to both the Father figures in my life and also my Hubby – as it was his first Father’s Day last year. We are now a year older, a year wiser and a year further on in life. As far as my Father figures are concerned a lot has changed. My ‘Bio-Dad’ lost his wife to lung…

Little Man is 4 Weeks Old – Breastfeeding and an Update!

I thought I would try and put the last 4 weeks down in writing but now that I’ve come to try and articulate it, I realise how much of a blur the last month has been. This is a feeling I’m sure most parents of newborn babies can relate to – every day/night seems to run into the next, you don’t know if you did something yesterday or the day…

Reflections on our Home Birth Experiences

I feel that I am in quite a fortunate position to have had two great home birth experiences but have also now experienced hospital after care – so in some ways I have seen both sides of the coin whilst still achieving the best possible birth experiences for us as a family. I have, however, heard countless times how ‘brave’ we were to have a homebirth, especially having a homebirth…

Second Homebirth But So Different to the First!

Well, I always think it’s best to not have a birth plan and to just see what happens. However, we did have a plan of sorts. Baby was going to arrive any time after 14th May – When the Grandparents were back from holiday, they would have LP and we would have a homebirth, or ideally, Baby would arrive at night, LP would sleep through the homebirth and wake up…
