Time, as I have mentioned in many posts now, goes by bloody quickly. I am so busy these days that I just don’t have the time to update this as well as I could be – shamefully enough!
The renewal of the domain has prompted me to update you all on life as we have it now! First, Sophie news 🙂
Sophie is almost 18 months (eek!) is running, has over 30 words in her vocabulary and is beginning to string a few together. Her favourite game is ‘go up the stairs and hold hands to come down again’ over and over. And over. Her eyes have now settled a beautiful green colour and she is Minnie Mouse obsessed. She understands and can say ‘baby’ and ‘sister’ and she is getting the idea that the baby is in my tummy. Sophie has had a long standing issue with her poops, so we basically demanded that the GP refer us to the paediatrician at the Conquest. We had an appointment with a brilliant doctor who took us seriously for a change. After blood and urine tests, she has rather high blood sugar but not enough to call it diabetes. She is also ridiculously constipated, but we had no idea how that was possible given her fluid levels and food she was eating. Anyway, we agreed to try her on prescribed Senna nightly, though we halved the dose as 5ml seemed excessive!
We also are keeping up the Movicol daily. We’ve gone from one-two very large, dry hard stools per day that made her scream and bleed, to two-three very soft stools that she passes without any issue! Major breakthrough for us, as now she’s eating properly again and can tell us when she’s going.
No really, she points and says ‘poo’ every time haha!
Sophie is growing up so wonderfully and I really have to say, as fun as babies are, toddlers are WAY more fun. Sophie is so chatty and affectionate and I love her face as she learns new things every day.
In other news, I am already 11 weeks pregnant (where the hell did that go?!) and quite surprised we’ve made it this far without any issues (touch wood). As you all know, we had a scan at 5+6 and all was healthy, and we booked a private 8 week one just to make sure. With Sophie I threw up every single day and that was about it! With this baby I feel like I’ve done nothing but sleep, the girls ache (you know what I mean?!) and I cry. A LOT! I have thrown up a couple times but literally five times compared to the daily five times with Sophie. Husband is convinced it’s a boy, I’m convinced it’s a girl. Only 6 weeks til we know. Yeah yeah we weren’t going to find out but this is our last pregnancy. A lot of talking (a years worth) has gone into this decision, and this will be our final baby. Lots of reasons and we are happy with our decision. It’s getting SO annoying though, when people say ‘oh yeah we’ll see this isn’t going to be the last yeah yeah’. As if we haven’t discussed this for a long time? As if we haven’t come to this decision and it wasn’t light?! Trying for a baby is hard enough for us, let alone trying for a third! So please, if you are reading and one of those who think ‘yeah yeah SUUUUREEEE they’re done’ then please, shut up!!!
Anyway! I will try and update here more often, there’s actually a fair few issues come up recently I need to research and blog on, but right now…right now I am going to bed!
