Normal Blogging Schedule Resuming

First off I would like to apologise for being absent over the last two and half weeks. It’s been a little crazy to say the least.

This post is going to be a bit of an update about where  I have been, and why I haven’t been blogging much.

So my last post was:- I Grew A Pair And Felt Invigorated, go check it out if you missed it.

Since then a lot has happened since then. Here’s an overview:-

  1. Logan came down with Chicken Pox
  2. I had my 20 week scan which bought up some issues
  3. I have been extremely stressed out with work and with personal stuff
  4. Hubby had some time off so we had much need family time together.

Logan came down with Chicken pox

So on the 1st August Logan had a couple of spots on his bum at first we thought they were just spots or bites from a day out in Cromer. However the next day the spots had spread and were starting to blister we were certain it was chicken pox. By day 3/4 we knew for definite that Logan had caught Chicken Pox. We are not entirely sure where he has caught it from. No-one we know has had their kids come down with it in the same time period. So the only thing I can think of was that he caught it from his Ready Steady Preschool group.

So with Logan covered in Chicken Pox and being Irritable and itchy I didn’t have the energy to blog anything. I wasn’t getting much sleep, it was all pretty rubbish for best part of two weeks. Most of the scabs have now fallen off with just a couple of big ones left now.


I had my 20 week scan

The 1st of August also saw me have my 20 week scan. Now I not doing a gender reveal post for a couple of reasons A) most people who follow my blog follow me on social media and know what were having and b) there has been too much time passed to do a reveal so I will just tell you, we are having a little girl.

While that was fantastic news we also found out that I have a low-lying placenta which means I go back for another scan at 32 weeks to see if my womb growing has allowed the placenta to move up. If it hasn’t then I must have a C-Section no if’s, but’s or maybe’s. Which with a toddler is not ideal. We also found out that the Little Lady has an enlarged kidney on the right side. So basically they allow for the kidneys to be a max of 7mm, the little ladies is 9mm. So considerably bigger. Again this will have to be check at 32 weeks. If the kidney hasn’t corrected itself (flushed the excess fluid out) then she will have to be scanned when she is born. If the birth doesn’t push the excess fluid out then she will have to be on antibiotics for the first 6-12months of her life. I will go into more detail with regards to my thought’s and feelings on this in my next pregnancy update post.

 I have been extremely stressed out with work and with personal stuff.

Work has been stressful lately I’m not going to go into detail because I want to keep work stuff out of my blogging stuff. But With Work and results from 20 week scan and the general pains from pregnancy have left me rather stressed out to say the least.

Hubby had some time off so we had much need family time together

Last week Matt had from the Wednesday off work so we spent the days or parts of the days going for walks or just having some nice quality time together. We also had my nieces round for a playdate.


On the Thursday afternoon we took Logan on his first little train ride. So where we live there is a country park with play areas and all sorts to see and do. They also have a little train that runs from one end to the other. Which we took Logan on for the first time.


We got a return and on the first trip he really wasn’t sure and held my hands firmly the whole trip, the second time round he had relaxed more and waved and said hello and goodbye to the people we passed. All in all a success I would say.

To summarise

So with everything that has gone on I just haven’t been in the right frame of mind to blog and to be there is no point in writing a post if your heart isn’t in it. But Now that things are getting back to normal I hope to be back to blogging regularly again.

Thank you all for your patience I really do appreciate it.

Please do get in touch either via the comments below or via Social media. I will reply to everyone at my earliest opportunity.

Until next time

    I had the low lying placenta with Paisley, it moved in the end and all was fine but don’t google it. If you really need to google it, check it out on parenting forums like net mums and the like, rather than the nhs. Nhs makes it sound very scary because it tells you the worst but people that it has actually happened to give a much more comforting version. My neighbour had it too and hers moved fine.
    As for the kidney, Dexter had that too. His was only borderline though, it was measured at .1 more than they like so they kept an eye on it and scanned him when he was born and all was well. He had antibiotics for the first week anyway due to risk of infection from such a long labour.
    In short, try not to let it worry you. I know that’s easier said than done, you want to do all you can to protect your baby and while they’re still in utero there’s only so much you can do but they keep you informed and they will do their best for you and baby. I still ended up with a csection and although it was hard work having Dexter too, we got through it. Ask for help if you need it. People will be happy to lend a hand. Take it easy xxxx

      THanks, Yeah I’m hoping it will move but we’ll see. Trying to relax and not stress although not easy when Logan decides to throw tantrums every bedtime. The joys of Parenting ay.
