//I SURVIVED 7 YEARS!…//
.
It’s my Sons 7th Birthday today 🎈
.
My Son is the best and most important thing in my life. His spirit, his happiness, his laugh, his smile, his conversations, his funniness….
.
My journey of Parenthood has brought me the highest times in my life but also the lowest and darkest.
.
I look back and was totally unprepared coming from an high expectations professional background lifestyle, I had such high expectations of Motherhood and put so much pressure on myself, I was setting myself up for failure from the start.
.
Once my Son was born, I changed instantly, my perspective on the World, my feelings in that split second. Seriously the best thing in the World but I also missed the old me.
.
Then to be full of hormones, a body that felt like it had a dragged literally through a obstacle course, so sore, bruised, bleeding, unable to sit, walk, move, eating was hard let alone having to care for a newborn that didn’t sleep!!
.
No SLEEP to recover – NONE – it started straight away for me Sleep Deprivation and went on for 6 months!! I covered and fraught through as that that’s what I was suppose to do!!
.
I had problems Breastfeeding, we brought every Baby Carrier and Swing, my Son hated them all! He hated Car Rides!!
.
Motherhood was exhausting & it continued. The Community Nurse was very unsympathic and so was my GP! My Mum told me ‘I just had Baby Blues!!”.
.
Then at 6 months, I was told my Son had ‘bad head leg’. He was diagnosised with ‘mild benign htpotonia’. So many medical tests to check it went something more serious. I was told to expect worst, not walking till 3 years old. My World that day came crushing down. (A story for another day).
.
I went through blaming myself, others, why’s, why me, how was I going to come. I have ways had mist things I wanted (!having worked hard for them) and now everything was out of my control.
.
I couldn’t settle my Son, he cried, I cried, it was the worst feeling in the World. So helpless. We started Physio and O/T weekly which continued till my Son was 3 years old. Though this has started up again at 5 yrs old. This is where I learnt some massage techniques and saw the benefits such Settlering, Calming, Bonding, Relaxing us both.. Bedtimes got easier. My Son walked at 18 months – it was the best day ever! Then the next day we took a bottle of Champange to Yanchep National Park and watch him chase across the field chasing Kangaroo – I cried! To have a Son who is behind in Milestones Ive found hard. Its such a competitive World and I’ve learned ‘So what if he’s not there yet, he will be soon’ attitude. I feel by telling my story over the years has helped me deal with it all rather than covering it up. My journey to me has been harder than otherws, but its not as hard as some who certainly have it alot harderr. My Son has just been diagnosised with other developmental delays – even more challenges set ahead as he starts Year 2 at School. But with the right mindset and detirmination will get there. My past experience has lead me to start Baby Massage Perth, to help others not feel so helpless in the first years. Massage honestly works. Keep helping others helps me heal myself. I thank my Son todday for teaching me so many things in life, I strive each day to be a better Mummy & example to him and help others anywhich way I can. Love Lucy X
