I'm back!!!

Hellooooo everyone!!

It's been a minute, okay well a couple of months LOL...first off Happy New Year!!! I hope it has been good to you so far, I know it's a little late it being April and all but I haven't been in here since early December so I owe you one.

In case you are following me on my facebook page (if you are not, you totally should LOL) then you know am a mommy again yeeey! My son Andrey was born on the 23rd January, via a somewhat emergency Csection weighing 4.1 kgs. I say emergency c-section because up to the last week of my pregnancy I was still clear for a normal delivery and was just waiting for labour to kick in, but on my last checkup my doctor was worried about the size of my belly (i mean look at it LOL) and was concerned the baby may be a too big for me to push without hurting both of us (me and the baby) and he suggested that the safest option would be a csection, I was terrified! It was not something that I was expecting at all because up to the last moment I had had a healthy no complication pregnancy except for the crazy weight gain, I was gaining exactly 10 kilos every month, and by the end of the pregnancy when I started weekly checkups I was gaining 3 kilos a week so by the time I delivered I weighed around 100kgs and crazy stretch marks!!!everyone thought I was expecting twins and I must say even I expected to come out of surgery and see twins LOL! babies even though the ultrasounds clearly showed one baby.



This was after I checked in at the hospital a day before my surgery, my feet were swelling up so bad in the end because of the weight but my pressure was perfectly normal, during the last weeks every thing was painful, sitting was painful, sleeping was impossible, walking was painful I was just limping along but I hated sitting at home so whenever I got  a chance I was up and about the only problem is how much people stared and wo can blame them this is major big and with my short frame I look like am about to tip over LOL.


My surgery went well no complications there though my pressure went up the minute they rolled me into the theater a.k.a the most ugliest scariest room I have ever seen in my life! the people in masks and boots, I mean rain boots whaaat!? didn't know people wore rain boots in theater and why is the operating table so narrow and hard? and it had this old green stained looking sheet on it ewww!! I'm glad they didn't just kill my bottom half for the operation because the last thing I want to be aware of is someone gutting literally me no way! I woke up to excruciating pain, I don't know why they didn't give me pain medication right away all I know I woke up and started crying from the pain when they were rolling me to the recovery room, I met my husband and the moms outside waiting anxiously, apparently the hubby had broke down crying from happiness when they came to tell him that the surgery went well and the baby was fine LOL such an emotional guy...it was good to see their happy faces even though I was in so much pain I was crying. I don't know why I wasn't given pain medication soon after, I mean when I heard that most women prefer a c-section to a normal birth I always thought a c-section was easy and painless and that was not the case for me at all, when I had Alyssa my labor was painful yes but it ended as soon as she was out and on my chest literally, so this was a strange experience I can't lie am the biggest chicken when it comes to Pain I can't handle it well. 


I couldn't wait to see my son before I slept, we had missed that bonding experience of right after birth and I didn't want to waste any more time...And finally we met, my precious Andrey after nine months of waiting!


                                  Happy papa...


                                 ready to go home...

my fingers look like little sausages here, everything got fat.

and I felt well enough to fix my eyebrows and apply some lip gloss plus tons of concealer for my eye bags, can't have people visiting me looking all punched up LOL even though I was feeling as if the pain would never end. 


                                                           His little feet...precious!!


who ever created the pacifier was a genious! my mother hates it says it gives the baby gas, didn't find anything on google (Yes am a google mom, I google everything! LOL) that says that is a definite fact so we still use it because its keeps him calm when hes bored and helps him fall asleep and it stops him from sucking his hands which will end up with him sucking his thumb, I wish I had used it when I had Alyssa because she started sucking her lower lip when she was a baby, she's four now and she still sucks her lip.


I was so worried my spoilt princess will feel jealous of the new baby taking all the attention but it's quite the opposite she adores him, the minute we arrived home she was all over him holding his little hands, very possessive of him, asking to hold him and she's obsessed with smelling his hair. 






My babies...


Dada mkubwa, she begs and begs to carry the baby and since the baby can control his neck now I let her, training her to be a good sister, her brothers keeper.



Andrey is now two months old and seventeen days old, he is not so fussy at night and I'm getting some sleep, I find it more effective to sleep when he sleeps but its hard sleeping during the day and am addicted to Telemundo LOL am following all the telenovelas plus am now foolowing Revenge, Scandal, Single ladies, Vampire Diaries and The Originals and cant wait to watch the first episode of Game of thrones so am far from bored. 

I'm slowly loosing the weight thanks to breastfeeding, I have lost 23 kilos already, am not going to diet because am breastfeeding, my belly is still huge I still look pregnantl, I havent been doing the whole tying with khanga bit everytime I try I get so uncomfortable I take it off, I know am going to regret this when I have a huge belly that wont go away but I hope I can get rid of it when I start exercising, I have already started walking in the evening and I do squats, lunges and jumping jacks to tone up I forget most days though LOL...

For the long haul...

 It's super hot over here, am hanging out at home with my very loud and chatty companion Alyssa who has taken over the TV so it's cartoons all day...no chance of getting some sleep here...

am still preggers, still many weeks to go...very tired and this hot weather is not helping...my bump is super huge now and harder to dress but I try my best...here are some of the outfits I have been wearing...





Wore this to my birthday party in october and to my brother's graduation



I currently don't have a dada so wherever I go Alyssa goes (mommy and daughter time) and she doesn't mind as long as she gets to play...



addicted to this juicy chicken breast sandwich at Kahawa Lounge








incase you are wondering nope am not having twins (it would be a nice surprise if I was) am just very big because I gain weight easily and fast and I have been giving in to the cravings, weighing 90kgs as of now, it's like I gain exactly 10kgs every month, I only got to 81kgs when I was pregnant with Alyssa.

Flower power...

Helloooo everyone! 

it has been so so so very long since I did a post or even logged in, I have been sick these couple of months, I had my very first tooth removal last month not an experience I ever want to repeat ever again, then my heartburn/acid reflux keeps me awake all night, not to mention the never ending trips to the bathroom, which means by morning am so exhausted all I want to do is just sleep some more...and now I have a bronchitis attack which I haven't had since I was 18, now I understand when they say each pregnancy is different cause when I was pregnant with  my first baby Alyssa I never got sick at all apart from the morning sickness in the first trimester I was fine and energetic through out and I went to work all the way to the end (my office was on the third floor and there was no elevator, quite the work out) but this time around am so tired so soon...must be cause am all lazy at home all day...today is a good day, I woke up refreshed and decided to seize the moment...




I have a doctor appointment tomorrow, am dreading to hear how much weight I have gained this past month, my belly is really huge and since am very short it's even more so...good news is my skin is still okay no breakouts or discolorations although my face is getting puffier everyday especially my nose and my fingers are like little sausages... 



I'm wearing: skirt, floral kimono ~ thrifted, tank top ~ hm, necklace ~ primark
Now am going to have breakfast and go back to sleep...have a great day darlings!
