Where Have I Been? | Jade’s Diary

Hi there!

IT has been the longest time since I have posted on here (My last post doesn’t count; It was a spur-of-the-moment post that was written on my phone – more about that late on)

The last time I had the chance to sit down at my laptop was about 2 months ago – I have almost forgot what to do!

more to the point; Jade, where have you been?

If you have been following along with me over the past few months then you will know that I was pregnant. Which, after pregnancy along comes a baby – who takes up A LOT of my time.

A Brief labour story

I was planning to be induced on the 15th April (Which was actually his due date) at 3pm. The bags were all packed and ready to go. They had advised to call if I Was getting pains, but because I was due to go in I didn’t feel the need to ring.
The first nurse had said I was already in early labour, so the induction wasn’t going to start. She advised me to get up and move around a lot, to help the labour come on.
Another nurse then came a few hours later to ask if I was still wanting to be induced. Of course I said yes! She then came back around 5 minutes later to tell me that there was a bed ready for me in the Delivery Suite.
I got there around 9 o’clock in the evening. Then he was born at 2:45am.
(If you want a more in depth story of my labour let me know!)

The next few weeks

So, we then got home around 4pm the following day.
The following weeks have gone by in such a blur. The first 2 weeks mostly consisted of family and close friends coming over to meet him and see how we were doing. If I am honest, I don’t really remember too much about this time. It is a complete blur too me now.

Time to get back to blogging

After about a month I felt I had a good routine going, managing to get a little time on my own during the day. I thought, this would be perfect timing to start getting myself back into blogging. But; my laptop had broke. It took a while for me to get to fix it. I tried for the longest time trying to do it on my own, researching what had happened. Turns out, I now know less about computers than I did before. Who knew that computer systems are such a minefield?! Luckily, I found someone who has managed to fix it! So; here I am. Back on the blogging scene.

what now?

At the moment, as much as I would love to be posting 2/3 times a week. I don’t feel like that is going to be possible. What with having a newborn baby who requires 100% of my attention most of the time. I then still need to do my housework and other normal household chores. Something I also try to do almost everyday is get myself out of the house. Staying in can get a little too much for me, so I try to get out most days. After all of that, I don’t get much down time for myself. I feel like posting just once a week is the most realistic goal for me right now.

As for my journal. I drew a monthly spread back in May, which I used the day I drew it. Since that day I have not even opened it. I just haven’t got the time to sit and make some really pretty spreads. I have turned to very quickly jotting notes down on my calendar. It’s quick and much more convenient for me at the moment.

So, that’s a very brief update which brings you all up-to-date. Thanks for reading, if you have any posts about having a new baby I would love for you to link them down below!

P.S If you want more updates of me and baby make sure you’re following my instagram.
