L’ottavo mese di gravidanza, è quel mese in cui la maggior parte delle mamme hanno già tutto il necessario per il proprio b***o e iniziano a comprare il mondo. caso ha voluto che combaciasse proprio con dicembre. il mese dei regali e degli acquisti.🤦🏻♀️ ieri io ed il tuo papà ci siamo adoperati per comprarti il nostro primo gioco. è stato difficile scegliere qualcosa che potesse essere adatto a te. ho sempre amato i giochi in legno . e così ti abbiamo comprato una piccola maracas. 🥰 la ricorderò per sempre. le nonne dicono che, dato il rumore, non è stata una grande idea🧸🎄😂
(il trenino invece è composto di altri vagoni ed era di un denis piccolino) #aspettandonoah#8monthspregnant #woodtoys

The journey to this little human is full of excitement and fear. there is so much i have learned from having clara but having two little girls... that’s going to be a whole new ball game. i look back on these two lines and am so grateful i can do it all again - i’m just so very tired and will be for the next... well... foreseeable future anyway 😂🙈
Let’s talk birth 🌼 remember - how our babies enter this world doesn’t define them (or us for that matter) it’s not something that’s going to determine where or how far they’ll go in life. it’s not going to effect their relationships or be the reason they don’t get that job. ‘sorry john we aren’t able to give you the position because you didn’t come out of your mum’s vagina’ 🙄you are not a failure because you didn’t go ‘natural’ or nor are you weak because you asked for that epidural. wether you laboured for 3 hours 8 hours or 2 days or maybe you didn’t even go into labour and had a scheduled c section you are still a boss a$$ bitch! 🙌🏽it is so unfortunate how many mumma’s beat themselves up over their birthing experiences. i see so many woman worry about ‘choosing the easy way out’ if they book in for a csection or stress if it doesn’t go how they had planned.. with both my babies i had a caesarean. emergency with zyla & elective with huxley. when it comes to a caesarean, in my opinion... it’s not the easy way out at all😐. my birthing journey with zyla was so different with huxley. with zyla i was scared! i was uneducated & my experience traumatised and brought about so much anxiety.!when i was pregnant with huxley of course i had days i felt like i should just give it another try, ‘ what if this time was different’ of course i wanted to feel what it was like to experience the one thing us woman are ‘made’ to do 🌞 but never once did i feel like i was a failure. i still grew my babies, i nourished them with my body, i carried them for 10 long months & my children are happy and healthy, they are thriving and they are loved & that has nothing to do with how they were birthed 👶🏽.. having control over the decision on how i wanted to bring huxley into the world was the best decision i could of made for myself, my mental health & for my baby & that’s all that matters 🙋🏼♀️. always listen to your gut mumma’s & always do what’s best for you & your baby no matter what anyone says. wether your baby comes out of your hoohaa or tummy! take pride in your journey, don’t compare & always believe in yourself 😘 you got this 👊🏼 #csection#pregnancy#pregnancydiary
Thank you all for your lovely messages, this little community of mamas and women is one thing i absolutely love about instagram.
a little update: i came into hospital at 11pm last night after an hour of contracting every 2 and a half minutes for 50 seconds. they gave painkillers and waited an hour. i was still contracting every two minutes at this stage. i had a dose of steroids to mature baby’s lungs and u****s relaxants to ease contractions. they have slowed and are still irregular at this point so another dose of steroids tonight. i won’t be released until they have stopped or until she is born. it’s such a scary thought having a baby so early but i know we are in the best place if it does happen. but she flipped last night, she has dropped and engaged which means if labour persists no need for a c section! trying to stay positive and writing out my thoughts helps, but i can’t help but to feel emotional right now.
