This is us after an hour flight (which felt like forever) of bloody murder screaming. I’m not sleeping, just so relieved that the flight was finally over. I was so exhausted. She finally fell asleep once we touched down. The lady next to me was tapping me and telling me to do certain things to calm my baby down and I lost it. DO YOU NOT SEE WHAT IM DOING?! I tried everything from feeding, 2 different pacifiers, teething toys, cell phone, bouncing, walking around, etc...NOTHING WORKED! If you see a parent who looks like they may need a hand, ask them how you can help instead of TELLING them what to do because trust me that just makes the parent even more flustered. Although I actually didn’t care about what people were thinking I was more flustered that I couldn’t soothe my own baby. This flight triggered a lot of anxiety and sadness from when she was first born. Motherhood isn’t always pretty, it’s not always fun, sometimes you can’t soothe your baby, somedays you just don’t want to do anything, other days you just want to sit in the corner and cry. You know what? It’s ok to do it all. You are not alone. This parenting thing is beyond difficult. I’m 6 months in and I still cry and have my gloomy days. I’ve learned to speak up more and try to take more time to take care of myself and sometimes that means just taking an extra long shower which feels amazing. #mywishformoms is to reach out when you need help. Don’t feel ashamed or guilty. You are not alone and you are doing your best you can so give yourself some credit for that! 💪🏼 #maternalmentalhealth #maternalhealth

It's been a good day, a quiet, baby free lie in this morning, @chrisvilaobjj seminar till the afternoon, drilling with @checkmat_worcestershire for the first time in ages then a great catch up with @jade_lucy_ at her baby shower. All topped off by pre-bedtime cuddles from Daisy ☺️ #bjj #bjjgirl #bjjgirls #bjjwomen #girlsingis #bjjmom #bjjdrills #bjjathlete #bjjgi #bjjtraining #thisgirlcan #istilltrained #bjjmoms #womenwhoroll #bjjbluebelt #bjjseminar #brazilianjiujitsu #bluebelt #grilledchickenbjj #bjjguard #babyshower

When hubby finds a bath/shower gel he likes 🙄 @checkmat_worcestershire has been getting through one of the smaller (400ml) bottles at least every month so in an attempt to reduce our plastic usage I’ve ordered a @faithinnature_uk 5 litre bottle 😂 works out as around a year’s supply and means I can refill the smaller bottles rather than throwing them away (works out at around £2 per bottle cheaper for us aswell as I got it reduced on Amazon!) Next on the list to sort is my flavoured sparkling water bottle usage. #reducereuserecycle #reducewaste #lessplastic #recycle #reusable #refillmybottle #teatree #faithinnature #refillnotlandfill

One of the joys (or annoyances) of pregnancy is that my ribcage and boobs have expanded so that none of my pre-pregnancy bras fit anymore 😣 Rather than binning them as most are almost new and I would have got a lot more wear out of them, they’re being sent to the charity Smalls for All who will distribute them as needed in both the UK and Africa. Beats them sitting and taking up space in my drawers! #smallsforall #smallsforallcharity #smallsforallcampaign #reuseandrecycle #Reuse #charity #brarecycling #postpregnancy #postpregnancybody

Here’s the starting numbers (the official ones anyway). I started back on keto in April and my weight has dropped a couple of kilos since then but yesterday was the first chance I’ve had to get a proper measurement. My fat mass is up 3.6kg on this time last year, overall body weight is up by 3kg so I figure that as a 0.6kg loss in muscle. Let’s see what the next 8 weeks of keto (including two cheat days), gym and BJJ results in 🤞🏻 #postpregnancybody #postpregnancy #postpregnancyweightloss #fitness #fitnessmotivation #bjj #bjjfitness #keto #Ketodiet #ketoforweightloss #brazilianjiujitsu #gym #strengthandconditioning #strengthtraining #strengthtrainingforwomen #juststrongwomen #Juststrong #juststrongclothing #bodyfatpercentage #bodyfatloss

I’m probably a bit more excited than I should be that Daisy’s cloth nappies arrived today 😋 We’ve been using reusable wipes for 80% of her nappy changes since about she was about 4 weeks old and I’ve been wanting to try reusable nappies ever since - I’ve felt so bad every time I throw a nappy away knowing it takes 500 years to decompose. I’m so happy they’ve arrived and are all prewashed, stuffed and ready to go tomorrow morning. Here’s to preserving the environment one nappy at a time 🌼 @babaandboo #clothnappies #clothnappy #babaandboo #environmentallyfriendly #nappies #modernclothnappies #modernclothnappy #reusablenappies #reusablenappy #reusable #reuseandrecycle #reuseorrefuse #savetheenvironment #thecheekofclothnappies #reusableproducts #reusablenotdisposable #makelaundrynotlandfill #zerowaste #saynotosingleuse

Today started with a 6am shouty wake up, filled with a trip to the gym for me and crèche for Daisy and then onto Croome Court for a picnic and chilled afternoon in the sun. Daisy was asleep this evening before I’d even finished putting her sleepsuit on 😴 a very tiring day for her with lots to see, learn and plenty of new strangers to coo over her including the National Trust gardener and a visiting American lady 😂🥰 #daysinthesun #daisydays #motherdaughterdays #motherdaughtertime #nationaltrust #nationaltrustmember #picnic #qualitytime #countryside #talkingbaby #babybabble #babytalk #babblingbaby #t21 #differentnotless #downsyndrome #downsyndromecutie #dontbesorry #extrachromosome #theluckyfew #t21rocks #t21love

Pre BJJ fuel up/lunch (yes I know it’s almost 6pm 😂) Keto French Toast with Strawberries and @skinnyfoodco Gingerbread Syrup I don’t use keto test strips as I normally “know” when I’m in ketosis as it’s the only way I can get to 6pm without being hungry having only eaten 6 strips of bacon at 10am. This bowl uses most of my net carb allowance (don’t ask how many as I’m a lazy keto-er who gets a general idea of carb contents and wings it) but as BJJ class and the rolling following it will easily burn off 500-800 calories, I’m not too worried. And it tasted amazing with plenty left for breakfast pre-gym tomorrow 🥰 #keto #Ketodiet #lowcarb #ketofrenchtoast #Ketofuel #diet #lowcarbdiet #sugarFree #nosugar #nosugardiet #frenchtoast #bjj #bjjgirl #bjjgirls #bjjgirluk #bjjwoman #bjjwomen #girlsingis #brazilianjiujitsu #bjjdiet #bjjbluebelt #bjjfuel

Not a bad effort at BJJ this evening, I’m finally passed the 12 week post partum line so can get back to “proper” rolling. It means I’m well out of my comfort zone and getting submitted left, right and centre but it’s the fastest way of getting back on track and back to competition standard. Only being able to properly train 3 hours per week means that I really need to make the most of any mat time that I can get and I think I can say I achieved that today. #bjj #brazilianjiujitsu #bjjgirl #bjjgirls #bjjwoman #bjjwomen #girlsingis #girlswhofight #thisgirlcan #istilltrained #postpregnancybjj #postpartumbjj #postcsection #postcsectionfitness #postpartumfitness #postpregnancy #postpregnancyfitness #checkmat #wearecheckmat #bjjbluebelt #bjjfitness #Juststrong #juststrongwomen #juststrongambassador

Presents bought, wrapped and distributed. As ready as I’ll be for bumps arrival and last day of work until February 2020 tomorrow. I think I’m all set 😊 Project over Christmas will be putting together my “job of the day” list to get through all the annoying little tasks I’ve been meaning to do before Little Miss arrives. P.S. how cute is this gift off my manager? 🤩 #nesting #christmas #christmasgifts #christmasprep #bringonmaternityleave #christmasholidays #tiredandmassive #pregnantmama #pregnantatchristmas #timetorest #babyprep #organisationalskills #listcomplete #bringonthenextlist #nouneccessarywalking #tiredandpregnant #pregnancy #letitsnow

As hubby @checkmat_worcestershire is now a pretty busy guy, what with holding down his day job as well as teaching BJJ @tffworcester 5 times a week while I’m at home waiting for Baby Severn to arrive, cooking and meal prep has now fallen to me. On tomorrow and Fridays lunch menu he has Italian Chicken with Pasta Salad and Rocket (I may have made a box for myself aswell). Hopefully the pasta gives enough carbs to keep him going for the evenings class, a breast of proper butcher chicken (less water + more protein = a lot more filling) and extra virgin olive oil in the pasta salad to add some fats. In the few weeks I’ve been doing this, the biggest task has been searching for Tupperware with matching lids which with bump in the way has been REALLY annoying, so I’ve ordered and am using @prepboxofficial instead from now on, let’s see if they make life any easier! Especially once baby’s here and I can start getting ready to go back on keto. #mealprep #prepbox #prepboxnutrition #chicken #chickenandpasta #chickenandsalad #chickenpastasalad #balanceddiet #balancedmeal #mealprepping #lunchprep #lunchbox #healthyfood #healthy #healthylunch #freshingredients #lotsofveggies #lotsofprotein #proteinpacked #proteinlunch #prepcheck

Looking forward to this moment is what kept me sane for the two weeks spent waiting to get out of hospital, finally home with our daughter, eating the Dominos I’ve been craving instead of hospital food and loving the knowledge that we get to settle down for the first time as a family tonight #homesweethome #family #newfamily #babyshome #daisy #home #outofhospital #outofhospitalfinally #bringingbabyhome #t21 #differentnotless #downsyndrome #ourdaughterdaisy #raisewarriorsnotprincesses #t21rocks #firstnightathome #dominospizza #thelittlethings #appreciatethelittlethings

Six weeks postpartum/csection and I’ve been signed off by the GP to get back to “normal activities” which meant after around 6/7 months off, I can finally get back on the mats! I had planned on just doing technique and focusing on relearning movement patterns but after an offer of a gentle roll from @jadonortlepp I couldn’t resist the opportunity to spar. Cardio will need some work and my timings are a bit rusty, I’ve lost muscle strength everywhere - especially in my core but other than that it felt like riding a bike, can’t really forget what to do as it’s muscle memory. So happy to be back and it’s made even better that Daisy behaved so I could focus on some time for myself 😊 #bjj #bjjgirls #bjjgirl #bjjwomen #bjjwoman #girlsingis #sixweekspostpartum #postpartumfitness #postpartumtraining #womenwhofight #brazilianjiujitsu #bjjgirluk #wearecheckmat #checkmat #postpregnancy #postpregnancyworkout #bjjbluebelt #bluebeltgirls #bluebeltbjj #bluebelt #postpregnancyfitness #bjjfitness #postcsection #postcsectionfitness #bjjmama #bjjmom #bjjfamily

It’s World Downs Syndrome Day!! How many kids can say they have a day to celebrate what’s different about them? Daisy’s diagnosis when I was 16 weeks pregnant came as a massive shock to us. When we were asked if we wanted the Triple Screening on the NHS, I said “yes” as it never crosssed my mind that the results would come back as anything other than normal. Then we got the phonecall a couple of days later to tell us that there was a 1/40 chance of her being born with T21, and that we needed to go through an amniocentesis procedure to get a dna sample from the waters surrounding her. We were still telling ourselves it was only a 1/40 chance, that the odds were in our favour, that it’s a 2.5% chance. It really knocked us for six to have her diagnosis confirmed after the agonising wait. We had no knowledge of it, knew noone with it, and Google searches just made the worry worse telling us about heart problems, bowel problems, eye problems, that there’s a chance she won’t walk or speak, that she may need constant care even as she gets older and that there’s no chance of her living a “normal life”. Then we started falling over the support groups, the ones that showed children with DS throwing tantrums like any normal child, dancing in and winning “able bodied” competitions, meeting partners, forming relationships and getting married. Supporting themselves through employment and living alone in their own apartments. Turns out, there are much worse things to be born with than DS, of all the scare stories we read, Daisy has walked all over them so far, she’s physically healthy, has no defects that doctors have found, is a little milk monster who can scream as much as the next baby when you take her out of her beloved bath or don’t cool her milk down fast enough. She’s starting to be pretty vocal with her sighs, squeaks and growls and is getting the hang of the movements needed to rollover, she’s learning to grab things (normally at the most inconvenient moments) and we’re getting glimmers of smiles. She’s our Little Duck and we love her to bits, I wish we could have been shown us as we are now to us 4/5 months ago - it would have quashed any worries we had!

How awesome is this?! It’s definitely made my day, our little Daisy Duck characterised perfectly for World Downs Syndrome Awareness Day 🥰 Thankyou @artbygartista it’s amazing!!

First “proper” training session since coming back from pregnancy, Wednesday nights are now daddy daycare nights so I can concentrate without listening out for Daisy. Great session taught by @jadonortlepp and an awesome roll with @bayxmaks who I’ve not rolled with since his first lesson, definitely won’t be leaving it that long again! Thankyou to @bubbahumpska for pairing up with me and my crappy cardio. I’ve definitely got plenty to work on and my shoulders are paying for the shrimping/hip escape drills but good fun 😊 #bjj #bjjgirl #bjjgirls #girlsingis #bjjwoman #bjjwomen #womenwhoroll #momswhoroll #womenwhorollbjj #bjjgirluk #brazilianjiujitsu #jiujitsu #checkmat #wearecheckmat #paulsevernbjj #bjjafterpregnancy #postpartum #postpartumexercise #postpartumbjj #8weekspostpartum #bjjbluebelt #bluebeltbjj #bluebeltgirl #bluebeltgirls #momswhoroll #backonthemats #rusty

Day One of the @chicomendesbjj seminar and my first “proper” night out for over a year. Was great fun training with the girlies then dressing up to go out for decent food and drinks. Now to get up and ready for Day Two.

First strength session since September, I’ll definitely be feeling it tomorrow but glad to be able to finally get back to it after having Daisy. Paul looked after her today so that I could train but having finally found a gym that has a crèche, I can hopefully get back to a routine that doesn’t rely on Paul being on a day off work! Gives Daisy some time to socialise with other little people aswell 😊 Now to build on the numbers 💪🏻 #fitness #strengthandconditioning #ladieswholift #bjjconditioning #bjjstrength #bjjstrengthandconditioning #freeweights #postpartumbody #postpartumfitness #strongwomen #fightingfit #lifting #liftingweights #weightlifting #strong #Juststrong #juststrongambassador #juststrongteam #postbabybody
