When I got to know I was having a second baby, one of the things I wondered about the most was how the boys will relate with each other, especially considering that they were so close in age. By the time my bump was big enough for Asempa to notice (6 months preggo), he was… Continue reading Sibling Love, Sibling Rivalry
After all that I have done for you. That statement! We all heard it at one point or another in our lives. For me, I would usually roll my eyes after hearing it because I felt, ahe ah. What's the big deal? Now that I am a mother, I see the BIG DEAL! Oh,… Continue reading After all that I have done for You
Theodore! It was around this time¹. A little after 11 pm, you finally arrived in this world. You take your time in everything. You had gone past your due date, but you were not bothered. When you finally decided to come, you took your time and came in the evening. When you were finally out,… Continue reading Happy Birthday, Theodore
All my life, the picture that has been painted around me has been a tiring pregnancy, a PAINFUL labour and a happily ever after with the new baby. It was like labour and delivery brought an end to it all. I was SHOCKED that it was just the beginning. Sigh. I realised very quickly that… Continue reading Postpartum : When Baby is finally Here
I know in my last post where I talked about my labour and delivery experience, I promised that my next post will be about my postpartum experience. However, I realised I'm tired of calling my kids Number 1 and Number 2. I mean for how long? 😂😂😂. I decided that instead of just switching to… Continue reading Meet the Appiahs
Labour pains. We've all heard about it. It's probably the most talked-about pain in the world and many believe there's no other pain that can be compared to it. Two babies later, what is my judgement? Well, let's talk about my experience first. I had almost the same experience with both babies... let's say they… Continue reading Am I in Labour???
Number 2! Growing up, I always thought parents sit down to carefully plan how they want their kids spaced and their body responds to this plan. Ha! I now know that only one thing makes babies so you can't be "walking" that path and think a baby can't be made. Did I say growing up… Continue reading Yes, Mummy! You are pregnant.
In honour of World Breastfeeding Week 2019 which began last week Thursday and ends today, I am finally making a comeback 🙈. Yes, it's been so long. Greatest apologies! There's number 2 now 😃 and several other changes I had to adjust to but hopefully, I won't abandon my Mummy stories anymore. Once you've… Continue reading Exclusive Breastfeeding : Can I do it?
My dear boy, I can't believe it's a year already. Wow! Time flies. I remember so vividly when labour started at dawn. I remember getting into the car to go to the hospital in those few minutes between one pain and the next. Although I don't remember the trip to the hospital so well, I… Continue reading Happy Birthday, Paschal
I think this was perhaps the most exciting part of the entire journey. So, another interesting thing about me. Prior to having my own baby, I have never seen or should I say, noticed how small newborns are. I've never been around anyone, family or friends who's a fresh mama. So I found baby clothes… Continue reading Newborn Baby Shopping
