Feeling sorry for myself!

I feel as though I've been rushed off my feet recently.
I've not had time to blog about all of those random thoughts that go through my head. It's been a hard week, with everyone (including myself) being a bit out of sorts. I've had a constant migraine, keep feeling dizzy and have complete lack of breathe. This doesn't help when I've also got a cold so I'm currently sat here feeling rather sorry for myself.

I had a follow up hospital appointment to check my heart murmur since last time they checked it I was 39 weeks pregnant, they wanted to see if there have been any changes. Nope! No changes. However they have said that it's an innocent "leaky" murmur so although it's there and shouldn't be, it apparently shouldn't really effect my day to day life.
Tell that to my lack of breathe and flutters.

On a good note, R also had a hospital appointment to check her hips as they didn't look aligned when she was born and the ultrasound technician said they looked perfect and she hasn't a worry about them!

L has started walking properly now too! So I need eyes in the back of my head! However she has been quite clingy recently as she is currently getting 2 molars through and wants lots of cuddles and Calpol!

T keeps falling over and has done some damage to her knees in the last couple of days so keeps complaining her knees hurt lots. Understandably. She's 3 years old and it's probably the first time she's ever cut her knees. I am pretty sure she is going through a growth spurt again which is putting her balance off.
I mentioned this to her teachers and even they agreed she seems to be getting taller. Not that she needs to be as she is already at least 2 inch taller than anyone else in her nursery class.
God knows where she's got the height from?! I'm 5ft 3 so not exactly tall and her dad is 5ft 9.

In addition to all of the feeling sorry for myself, I am also stressing a lot. We have a family wedding coming up in less than 3 weeks and I still haven't completed any outfits for the girls or myself!
I only bought L's shoes today! Still need some for T and none of them have tights or cardigans yet!
I don't have any tights yet... I'm not even sure the dress I bought for the wedding will still fit me as it was a little too big when I bought it and I've lost weight since!
I should really get my butt in gear and try it on!
I'm worrying about how it's going to go. I don't have a spare dress for myself! I can breastfeed in the dress I've got but when is the appropriate time to breastfeed? Should I take a bottle down for the ceremony? How do I do that if it's frozen milk!? I don't have an ice block however I do have a cool bag? I really need to look into everything.
I think I'm going to have a bottle ready for the ceremony in case R gets hungry however will probably just breastfeed the rest of the day. I have a nice big cardy to cover myself up! That's acceptable? Right?
I don't know how I would react if someone told me I was being indecent! I won't make a scene! But I will NOT feed my baby in the toilet!

Gosh! I needed this let out!


  1. Hello! I just found your blog via the Britmums linky. First of all, you have no need to worry about breastfeeding in public. I breastfed my daughter at a friend's wedding in church when she was about 18 months old, and when we left the church, we received compliments about how well behaved our children had been! Nobody will know, and at least the baby won't be crying ;)

    1. Thank you! This is what I needed to hear! There will only be 5 children in total at the wedding and evening do and 3 of them are mine!
