Poorly with a baby

As soon as you become pregnant your motherly instinct kicks in and your baby is instantly the most important thing in your life. I know I’ve put Priya in front of all my needs and I don’t even think twice in doing so but this week I’ve really paid for it.


I’m poorly. The doctor has said I’m run down and need to ‘take it easy’ and ‘rest’. REST?? What’s that?
How can any mother of an 8 month old rest? But today I’ve had to take a step back. I’ve woken up with a migraine to the point I couldn’t even talk, open my eyes or move.

THANK GOD my partner had the day off. I don’t know what I would have done without his help today. He has done everything for Priya and myself so I could follow the doctors orders and rest.

Although I haven’t been up to anything today, we’ve had a sofa day and it’s been nice and relaxing.

Since having a head ache since Monday I’m hoping today’s the worst of it and I will be back to full swing tomorrow.

BUT, I can’t help feel guilty for not giving Priya all the attention she needs from her mummy. I have actually missed her so much. This morning was the first time she didn’t wake up to me. Hayden has done everything just as I would have and she probably loved having daddy get her up this morning, feed, bath and play with her but I still feel guilty.

I am praying I feel better tomorrow and give Priya double the amount of attention and kisses as I usually do.

It’s not easy being unwell with a baby but with the support from your loved ones around you it’s made so much easier.
