From what's happening in maternity fashion to what's happening in the world of motherhood. Here's where you can get updates info and insights - all straight from Rosie!
Baby Wells is now a week old and it is safe to say two things: one, I am completely in love and two, I have lost complete control over my hair! I was planning on attempting to fix it this morning and then I weighed up the fact that I had a spare 10 minutes to either try and make my hair look glam for my toddler and my one week old or I could indulge in an extra large latte while sitting down. I now know I still have my marbles because I chose the latte!
On Saturday evening Daron (my hubby), JR (my 2 ½ year old son) and I welcomed Wellington “Wells” Reade Pope into our lives at 5.51pm. Weighing in at 8Ibs 8 ounces I am glad to say this labor was drastically shorter than my 26 hours stint with JR! Having babies is a fascinating experience.
Seeing as there is a theme of preparedness and survival in this week's Morning Coffee, let's talk a little about what happens when the baby actually comes. Just as the last two week's of pregnancy are tough, the first two weeks of being a new mom are also incredibly difficult.
I don't think I intentionally set about being a Luddite but apparently it happened to me! Thankfully and at long last though I have been pulled into the technology era...well, sort of. My new Facebook page is live, I'm tweeting like a banshee and the first part of our spanking brand new website is up for all to see.
Survival Tips for the Last Weeks of Pregnancy:
- Don't stop working - even a little distraction from the office is going to make the days go quicker, and you also won't eat into your maternity leave.
