Being A Minnie Mommie Number 2
This is the opening to my journal on the parenting thread but going to move it accross as i think it would be better used here!!!!
Link to previus thread http://www.babyandbump.com/parenting...umber-2-a.html
I thought i would start my own journal as i have been reading so many i thought i could at least try.
I have been with my beautiful wife now for 7 years we have been married for 3 and started looking into starting a family straight away.
From the start i was adamant i would never carry a baby and i still stand by that and my Wife Charlotte has been the one to do all the baby stuff, i am looking at this parenting journal from the other half perspective really, some of my friends call me the daddie but the name we have given me if """Minnie""".
We started our Baby journey let’s say on the 25/02/2009 which seems ages ago but i remember it so well, we went down to Harley Street London and had our first ever appointment with a lovely doctor and embryologist, which we was in there the doctor asked us if we wanted a Caucasian baby and Charlotte just said she "I don’t do drugs" well i wanted the world to eat me up, safe to say we never went back leaving in fits of laughter...
We contacted the London’s Women’s Clinic, the London Fertility Centre and the London Women’s Clinic Darlington.
We went for several appointments and had our first appointment on the 28/9/2009 with the LWC Darlington where our journey started.
Our first appointment was very scary but we have such a good network of friends and family that it went so smoothly. Egg Sharing was our next step as the process was very expensive and obviously not being a “Daddie” we had to pay a small fortune of £1000 for sperm x2
The fun begins, we went for scan after scan, charlotte injection after injection, I was unable to help her with these as I felt I could not hurt her. We had our egg collection and I think if I remember charlotte donated around 30 eggs altogether so far (it was around Easter time as well)
Our first attempt did not go according to plan and we had a MC just after Christmas 2010, but we went back for a second go and fell preggies whoohooo. We were given a due date or our LO of the 15TH December 2010 but she decided to come early in all the snow on the 7th December. I remember panicking like hell when charlotte was in labour as there was nothing i could do, thank god we had a good team of midwives and charlotte aunty with us, so I just played teas maid really.
Our little girl weight 7lb 4oz at 5:15pm
Lacey Jayne is now nearly 1 and I cannot wait for her 1st birthday.
It took me ages to change a nappy using cloth bambino mios ahhhh and could not make a bottle at first I just poured and scoped and hoped for the best so was banned from them jobs to begin with. I am the main bread winner in our house and work 40 hours a week for the NHS and do overtime in A&E with helps pay for some things but also miss out on some stuff as well, the bonus to doing everything is when I get home the smile on Lacey face is amazing and make me smile and she outs her arms out I pick her up and that’s my time.
I am in charge of bath time and bed time….
Would not swop my little family for the whole world, we have just suffered another MC but am still going to try next year surplus to funds.
Left for work !!!
Well Lacey woke up this morning and screamed the place down now more zzzzzzzz for us then one up all up!!!!!
And I'm following here too! :winkwink:
Thank you!!!! XOXOXOX
Cee108 not long now!!!
xforuiholdonx Hi ya!!! whohoo another follower xxxx
Updated pic of what Charlotte has sent me this lunch time, we are trying to get lacey out of having to long of a sleep in the day time because she is just waking in the night!!!
So now i know what Charlotte means when she takes her self of for a sleep without her knowing. What do we do now!!!! wake her leave her ????
Oooh that picture is soooo adorable, bless! She's so comfy right where she is - I won't have the heart to wake her! Though I'm sure the person who has to stay awake with her at night wouldn't agree :blush:
So, since I don't know much about the subject, what DOES one do when a toddler takes themselves to sleep? :D
Oh and yes, am waiting for my squatter to evict but he's showing no signs :( Have been told if he doesn't appear by the 16th, 17th is Induction Day (I'm so scared of that for some reason!) Fingers crossed it won't come to that!
Cee108 i dont have a clue what to do about it when she goes of to sleep, sometimes if the dogs are in the kitchen she will climb in their bed and sleep with them!!!!
i wake her up really if i am of work but Charlotte leave her :growlmad:
She slept all last night for the 1st time is about 8 weeks which was amazing but i found myself waking up and just checking her :dohh: i think my body has got used to being woke up. :coffee:
We are a family of eating at the table toghether as much as we can and have been trying to get lacey to eat as much different stuff as possible weetabix, toast, cornflake are all a hit but tried her with porridge yesterday she just looked at me like crap!!!!!
This morning i decided to funk up the porridge and make it with cinnamon and rasins and she ate it :happydance:
Morning time is normally my time with lacey so was really please that she ate all her breakfast bless her when i was cleaning her up and and turned around to put her tray in the sink she had grabbed my cuppa and poured half of it on her luckily it was luke warm as did nto burn her but had to get her changed again but the best is the :hugs: cuddles before i go bless her its like she knows now that i will be home soon xxxxx
Obviously the snow is playing havoc as if it is still her on monday i dont know how i am going to get Lacey to the childminders cause i dont drive and charlotte does not have the flexibility of taking time of where she works, i have spoken to my boss and they have said if i can not get her to not worry and just come in to work when charlotte gets back but that would be doing 2-10pm and i would be on my own in the office so it would drag like hell.
I am also the non-birth mom so will be great to read how things are going. As we are only 5 weeks into motherhood everything is still new to us!
Its been my first week back at work this week and it has killed me, hated leaving them but in the next breathe it is so nice to come home to cuddles and dinner on the table(lol)!
Look forward to reading your journal.
Hi kezza78 no worries at all, it is horrible at times, but the whole birth thing makes me cringe!!!! ahhhhhhh

Never beedn before so any advice would be amazing think we might go down to lond and stay over or fly from manchester and have a few day in paris :happydance: well excited to meet mickey and minnie :happydance:
Stuck at work sometimes i hate working for the bloody NHS!!!!
