So this time last week I had just come out of labour and was getting used to my baby Anjie – today, I’m still settling in and adjusting to motherhood! There’s absolutely no rush to adjust especially as these are the early days. So really what has happened since we got home?
First of all! Here’s welcoming Anjolaifeoluwa Jasmine Omoniyi into the world! She made a gracious appearance on the 21st of December at 7.40pm weighing a good 8lb 5oz (3.77kg)
It all started on my due date, 18th of dec when I had a bloody show (lost some mucus plug) – that was my first sign that labour was coming. But nothing happened except the normal period like cramps and a few contractions in between. Continue reading
So the 18th has come… The much awaited due date! Not sure what I expected to feel really, but I can tell you now it’s pretty much like any other day! I’ve got the usual Braxton hicks and period cramps but nothing solid still.
However, on a positive note, I had a bloody show this evening! That’s the mucus plug from my cervix thingy! This means my baby girl is getting ready to make an appearance! Would have loved for her to show on her due date so I can say she’s a right-on-time kinda gal but that might not be (that said, say what say what, anything can happen, the night is still young!).

Well, it’s week 39 now and I’m still waiting…
You would think that since I’m on my maternity leave I would have more time to myself and this would translate to more time to blog and all! That’s a yes and no… I do have more time to myself but that’s just what I’ve been doing – spending more ‘me’ time and catching up on lots of rest and relaxation! After all, these are my last days of freedom! Continue reading
Amazing… And just like that we’re getting ready for Christmas and the New Year! Well at least most people are… Us, we’re getting ready for the arrival of our little one! This year has been an amazing year and one I’m not going to forget in a hurry! I’m just thankful for getting to the last month and continue to pray for many more ahead…
So really since I’ve started my maternity leave what have I been up to? Not much! Well that’s not really true, I’ve been doing a bit of baby shopping, got some more clothes for the little missy, made her bed and all and started getting ready our hospital bed. Haven’t ticked everything off the list but we’re getting there :-). Continue reading
