On Being Whatever Weight You Want To Be

My wedding day. Those hips and jugs ROCKED. 
Looking back it’s amazing how much my weight has fluctuated through the years, and more importantly how little I have cared about it.
Up until the age of 21 I was a super skinny size 6, too skinny really as I was so relieved to put a little skin on my bones as my metabolism slowed down in my early twenties.

3 Months of Baby

And what an October we’ve had! I spent another day in hospital today – madam has developed another UTI but luckily this time I noticed her wee smelling a bit whiffy and got her to A&E straight away.

Homecoming!

Phew. We are home.
We got back yesterday afternoon and spent the rest of the day all snuggling on the sofa, exhausted after our 5 night stay. My home was a fold-out camp bed next to Elfie’s cot, lumpy and cold.

I write this in hospital, sitting by Elfie’s bedside, which is where I’ve been since 5pm on Tuesday.
We have been so concerned about Elfie’s weight and after another disappointing visit from a paediatric nurse last week I decided enough was enough and rushed her to the GP.

Time Flies

Where does the time go? I seem to be struggling to keep up with life at the moment – the internet is far down on my priority list, unfortunately even further down than dusting and ironing.

A Weighty Issue

This post originally appeared in my old blog, www.the-alice.co.uk
Last week I was distraught to find out that Elfie’s weight had dropped to a tiny 8lbs 4 oz. Obviously at 10 weeks old, this was not a good thing.
My local health centre has cancelled their drop-in weight clinics so she hadn’t been seen for 4 weeks – in this time she had only put on 6lbs.
