When you decide to start a family or expand your family you know that it’s going to change your life considerably but what I didn’t realise Is what an impact my last pregnancy would have on the rest of my life.
If you’ve visited the blog before, know me in real life or have followed my Instagram for a while you will know that I suffered a rare but life threatening pregnancy complication with my last pregnancy. Which resulted in a cesarian hysterectomy. I suffered quite a few complications from the surgery. (Twisted bowel, split wound, sepsis, 11 units of blood transfer)
But what I never took into account was that after the healing from all of those , that there would be more issues to come as a result.
The menopause isn’t something I thought about before a year ago.
It was just something that happened to older women.
Something that I didn’t really need to think about Yet.
Yet here I am 38 years old with my fingers crossed that the HRT I was given just 2 weeks ago will make me feel human again.
Will stop all my aches and pains.
Will help with the anxiety I’ve been feeling creep back up.
38 years old what should be the prime of my life really. Often though in a morning I feel more like 88.
I’m trying so hard to be healthy, lose weight, get fit, look after my body and my brain.
I’m finding this new part of me a little bit scary and overwhelming at the moment.
Please feel free to leave any tips for me to get through this new chapter in my life.
