That's how we feel about being home ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜. He is just so cute. He makes funny faces all the time and makes our hearts melt. He made a friend today, too. I crocheted this wal for him, now he's having a ๐Ÿณ of a time!! #pregnant #fitnessmagla #fitness #heathy #schwanger #schwangerschaft #geburt #birth #babybump #babyboy #julybaby #julibaby #kalifornien #california #woistdasbaby #goinghome #kalifornien #crochet #crochetanimal #california #newborn #newmums #swaddle

Motherhood- Day 3 ๐Ÿคฐ What the books tell you- 'On day 3 you are likely to experience what is known as 'the baby blues'. You may feel very teary, cry it out and understand this is ok. Your milk will come in and you may feel flu like symptoms. You are moving onto the next stage and it is normal so try not to worry....... What ACTUALLY happens... 'On day 3 you will not wake up to giant melon breasts, because you will already be awake, whether it's to feed, burp or poop or whether you are still sat there poking your baby to check it's breathing. Your breasts will be ginormous causing your other half to somehow find you more attractive ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿˆ Keep a long stick with babies shit on the end to bat them away with ๐Ÿ’ฉYou will have shit in abundance so do not feel concerned if you don't remember this! Said breasts are too big to shove in baby's mouth, so you must squeeze them until milk releases and they go down ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ‘ŒYou may feel like a cow with udders, but moo your way through it sister ๐ŸฎTop Tip: Keep chocolate within reach through this experience ๐ŸซYour darling child will sleep blissfully all day and you will also look at your child and feel proud that they can sleep. You will be encouraged to rest when he sleeps but you are yet to brush your hair and your general hygeine will be at an all time low. ๐Ÿ™‹ #whostinks #thatwouldbeme Shower if that's what you need, and again, chocolate at arms length ๐Ÿซ I can not stress this enough. You may well feel revolting when you catch yourself in the mirror as your belly looks pregnant and you question who these fuckers are on Instagram with their abs of steel on day 2. Top Tip: Unfollow! ๐Ÿ‘‹ You must surround yourself with those who make you feel normal. But.... trust me when In tell you that the second your baby fist pumps the air in his sleep as he is in your arms whilst you rock him in a very carefully executed swing that does not disturb your arsehole area, you WILL NOT CARE and you will, in some fucked up way, be the most content you've ever been. It's a rollercoaster, but it's fab. Be grateful and run head first into the shit storm, it's all fun and games if you relax and let it flow

Thereโ€™s nothing like the experience of your breastmilk โ€˜coming inโ€™. Waking up and suddenly realising that your breasts have tripled in size overnight and are heavier than a bag of cement. Ah motherhood!!! What to expect in the first week of breastfeeding-

Immediately after birth your breasts will produce colostrum. It is low in fat, high in carbohydrates, protein, and is packed with antibodies to help keep your baby healthy.
Colostrum also has a laxative effect on baby, helping him/her pass their first poo (otherwise known as โ€˜meconiumโ€™) When you feed your baby colostrum, it's as if you're giving him his first vaccination.
It is the perfect first food for your baby.

๐Ÿ’•BUY THE NEW MUM'S NOTEBOOK TODAY AND GET ONE FREE๐Ÿ’•. Exactly one year ago today. This was me. Sitting on my doorstep. Relieved. And a bit overwhelmed. Holding the first ever copy of The New Mum's Notebook. Before the remaining 2,999 turned up a month later. Was it really only a year ago? So much has happened since then. And yet. There was never any strategy. My mind doesn't work like that. Instead it flits from nectar to nectar like an over zealous, slightly distracted, often confused butterfly (dusty old moth). I did always have one thing in mind though. Wanting to support new mums. To normalise so much of the oddness that happens in those early months. The book deal with @penguinrandomhouse still takes me by surprise. That you can create something 'just from your brain' as my gorgeous friend @quinn_n_toniq says ๐Ÿ˜‚ and it ends up somewhere you'd never even imagined. This week, the universe has worked its magic again and shown me what it wants me to see, with an uncanny number of medical professionals (doctors, doulas, health visitors and psychologists) suddenly and simultaneously endorsing the Notebook as a really useful tool. I am really, really glad that it is making a small difference to the lives of new mums. And I will never stop thanking all of you for supporting an independent author, spreading the word and buying so many copies. Ever grateful. **TO GET THE NOTEBOOK INTO EVEN MORE NEW MUM HANDS, TODAY YOU CAN ๐Ÿ’• BUY ONE, GET ONE FREE ๐Ÿ’•ENTER NEWMUMLOVE AT CHECKOUT** ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’•(T&Cs: Add two Notebooks to basket, enter code at checkout. One free book per order. All orders will be despatched second class on Monday) #thenewmumsnotebook

It feels like a distant memory. Here I was coming to the end of my pregnancy with baby number 4. I knew I'd over indulged. I was most definitely eating for two, three possibly 4. Our beautiful baby had arrived and I was over the moon. Being a new mum was hard work. Sleep deprivation was hard but I think what was harder was the thought of all the weight I had to loose,again. There were tears, there was much laughter but most of all there was a determination deep down, burning bright knowing how desperate I was to do it. It took time, progress was slow at times and I fell of the wagon often but I never ever gave up. The mummy tummy apron I thought I was stuck with for life slowly started to disappear. There were days I loved myself to the moon and back appreciating how amazing my body had been once again carrying our beautiful baby boy. Then there were days I hated myself so much for over indulging. My message is ( because I'm beating around the bush now) Your body will change back. The process may seem slow at times but it's a whole load of swings and roundabouts and getting back on that wagon. Love yourself each step of your journey. Try not to wait till you reach "target" to love yourself again. You need to love yourself now. Look around and count your blessings. It's not easy but keep moving forward at whatever speed. Tiny steps, little changes, they all add up. If you're reading this I want you to know that I believe in you ๐Ÿ’• #newmums #mummytummy #pregnancy #postpartumbody #mumtobe #food #diet #sw #weightwatchers #weightloss #foodblogger #ww #healthyeating #swblogger #slimmingworld #52diet #52 #slimfast #lighterlife #dietfood #healthylifestyle #healthyfood #healthy #pregnant #pregnancy
