I am 13 weeks pregnant now. This whole being pregnant thing is confusing this time around. Am I starting to feel better? Is it…Is that off feeling, that awfulness gone? Am I ok? What’s happening? Where am I? Questions I seem to be asking myself every day at the moment. (more…)

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Life / / 0 comments

I must confess that I had not heard of Obstetric Cholestasis before. According to BabyCentre Australia, it is a condition that affects less than one percent of pregnant women in Australia, and it is one that hugely effected the contributor of our latest Real Birth Story – Brea Walker. It made getting through her pregnancy an incredibly uncomfortable struggle.  Did you read Brea’s Birth Story? If not, read it here, now!  In Brea’s latest contribution she explains what suffering from Obstetric Cholestasis is like, and she provides her top tips to get through this difficult condition. I hope you enjoy it!  (more…)

Lately I have been struggling. I am sure this has happened to every parent at one time or another. But I have been struggling with being rejected by my child. This isn’t the first time it has happened and I am sure that it wont be the last. And I am probably making a much bigger deal of it than it actually is, but that doesn’t stop my heart from breaking each time it happens. (more…)

Instagram post 2318952143419045733_2224857444 * JOKES FOR DAYS ! * So, my son loves nothing more than to make us laugh... And you know, I bloody LOVE that about him, because boy oh boy how I really love to laugh!! #laughteristhebest And so because if that, we have taken to telling each other knock knock jokes. The worst, worst WORST kinds of knock knock jokes to be specific. Which have been told so many times over that they are no longer remotely funny. #KayMaybeTheyAreStillALittleFunny In fact, wanna hear some of his favourites (that I might add, he always gets wrong) so you can share in the joy too? Oh good. Coz here goes... Knock Knock. Whose there? Bear. Bear who? Bear bum. *insert crickets* Or, knock knock. Whose there? Orange. Orange who? Orange you glad I didn’t say banana? *cough... silence* So... yeah. That’s what my life is these days... 😂 #livingthegoodlife . Do you know any good you can share with us so we can expand our repertoire? Please dear lord, share them below so I can teach him something new tomorrow 😂
Instagram post 2317499714328491867_2224857444 * FUCK ME, THEY ARE SO BLOODY DIRTY! * Do you remember a time (pre-kids) when you imagined having kids? Your days would be filled with endless laughs, endless adventures, endless love... And I bet you that not ONCE did you imagine the fuck load of laundry you would have to do when it came to living that adventurous life, did you? Bloody hell I know I didn’t. But yesterday (when I obviously felt like living on the edge), I took the kids for a walk to the end of our street whilst we hunted random puddles to jump in. Like this bad boy right here ☝🏻 “Jump!” I commanded. “Live your best mud splattered life”. And they did. Oh the memories I just knew they would make! But the washing that came afterwards made me want to throw myself out of the actual window. Was it worth it? Meh. Will I let them do it again regardless? Probably. Because kids are so controlled these days. And I liked that, even if it was only a few minutes of muddy joy (and a lifetime of laundry for me), they could really be kids. And they could experience the giddy, silly freedom that being a kid should bring. Are you a muddy puddle jumping family? Or do you steer clear! Share below xx
