Health Visitors and Antenatal Classes
Hello! It’s been a while.... quite frankly I’ve really not known what to write about.
Things have been ticking along nicely and I don’t want to come across as smug but since my last post, I’ve felt amazing and if it weren’t for the active bump, I think I’d forgotten I was actually pregnant....that was until now.
Now I feel a giant balloon of hormonal mess; everyone and everything in life is against me and all rational behaviour has gone out the window. Any tips for helping with this that don’t involve violence?
In positive news, I am really grateful that midwife appointments have been going well.
I am a bit superstitious but also love over sharing so it’s been a real battle of consciousness to not post too many things socially in case I tempt fate but so far so good!
Last week though I got a visit from a health visitor who came to check out my home (and me) as she’ll be coming to see me post birth. When asking if I had any queries about anything, there was a real look of horror on her face, followed by frantic scribbling in her notebook when I responded with ‘no I don’t think so, I’m not really thinking about the present, more just how I keep it alive once it comes.’
My husband is now worried social services will be one of our first guests to the house once the baby is here and has banned me from making any observations at our antenatal classes which start next week!
