Bumps Arrival

Hes here!! The day after my last post (39 weeks) bump arrived. Apologies for taking  so long to post but when that little bundle of joy arrives there's not much time for anything else. Here he is now 24 days old.

He is just adorable, it felt I he would never arrive but when he did  it all happened so quickly and he was born in my bedroom me on all fours with 5 paramedics and a midwife ha ha not quite what I was expecting.

You would think being my fourth baby i would know when i was in labour but ecpect the unexpected as they say.

I woke up with cramping as i had done for weeks but then started having little contractions but didnt take much notice as with the others i expected my waters to go first. They kept coming so decided to time them and they were 7 minutes apart I thought shit this is really happening.  I phoned the hospital and they said if i went in i would probably be sent home so I decided to stay put for a while, however my contractions speeded up and we phoned an ambulance. By the time they got here they were 2 minutes apart and they decided not to take me in due to the fact of not wanting to try and get me down stairs ( we live on 2nd floor) so they called for a midwife to come She promptly arrived and told me i was 9cm and literally minutes later he arrived all in one go, waters went everywhere.  He was born at 10.16a.m weighing 7lb 11 so a big baby for me.  Despite that it was the easiest birth (3rd was herendous) so much more relaxing than at hospital andthe midwife was lovely.  We did have to go in for 24 hour monitoring as had meconium and i had a 2nd degree tear which without stitches seems to be healing fine.

So thats how bump arrived and im looking forward to blogging lots about my gorgeous boy.

Speech Delay

So bump is now 4 and he is having problems with his speech I'm at the point now where I'm thinking did I do something wrong? will he ever talk? and I just don't know the answers which is frustrating me so I can only imagine how frustrating it is for him.

His speech started off fine the usual mama, dad, dog etc then it just seemed to stop and no more progress was made and I was too worried at first because my eldest daughter who's almost 20 now didn't really say all that much until she started nursery.

By the time it came to his 2 year review I was slightly concerned and spoke with the health visitor about it and was referred to speech therapy, we waited a while for that and they only saw him once where the speech therapist sat and played with him and gave me things to do at home with him.

We did attempt for him to start nursery last April but it didn't go too well and he didn't go anymore, he is quite a handful and they wouldn't let him stay the whole s…

potty training a 4 year old

So as I said in my previous post about speech delay bump is now 4 and still not potty trained, I started off potty training at 2 and its just been a struggle ever since, I feel like I've hit a brick wall and I just don't know what to do anymore.

he wont sit on the potty or the toilet, have tried everything to encourage him, books, dvds haven't tried a reward chart because he would have no interest in that.  Took his nappy away but he will just wet or pooh himself and not care.

He wears a nappy to nursery and he is due to start reception in September, what am I going to do send him to school in a nappy? I cant do that, I'm hoping and praying he's just going to decide to do it on his own but he is quite happy still wearing a nappy with no prompt to change him if he's done a pooh.

I'm at a loss and feel like a total failure, I've potty trained his sisters perfectly fine so why cant I do it?

please feel free to leave me a comment, email or tweet me i'd …
