Guest Series: No Holes Barred Questions By Jade From Jades Long Journey

I decided that I loved writing my “No Holes Barred” Post Labour Questions so much that I wanted to reach out to my fellow mummy blogger and read some of there guest responses.

With that I have launched my Guest Series Of No Holes Barred and next up on the blog to share there Experiences is Jade from Jades Long Journey. Jade writes about everything from Babies to adult stuff and her content is right up my street.

Here’s Jades answeres below, hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did. Don’t forget to check out Jades blog and social links- Go say hello and tell her I sent you!

Did your partner look down the business end while you gave birth?                                                                                                               If he did do you remember his facial impression of what he saw? 

Haha no during both labours. My first (son) he was shoved into a corner as I was 12 weeks early, I remember him saying he didn’t feel too good once he saw all the fluids and blood that had just poured out of me. The second time (daughter) he was half across the pennines with Dad going to watch rugby. 

Did you poop during labour?

Every woman’s fear but thank the Lord and all the other God’s that I did not poop one single nugget.

After giving birth did your sex drive improve or decrease?

Decrease for a while, a long while haha. It is back to normal but after my second I just really couldn’t be bothered and I don’t think going on the pill has helped.

Where you tempted to look at your bits in the mirror post labour to see what it looked like?

The first time no the second time yes. It felt like it was the first gates of hell down there as I had a graze (think paper cut on your mini). I had a peak it was um roadkill I think is the correct word to describe it. 

Did you wait the recommended 6 weeks before part taking in sexual intercourse post birth?

Yes and it was needed to be honest both births. 

Do you find you take Less care of your self since becoming a parent?

After my first I still put the effort in but after my second, who cares if you have yesterday’s clothes on and just touched up yesterday’s make-up! 

Is your child a cock block? AKA do they interrupt your sex life?

Hmm yes and no so they don’t physically walk in or anything but I think my daughter can sense when I’m not in the mood, as she will all of a sudden wake up and cry and cry. So liam isn’t best pleased. 

Did your first child make you think carefully about when the right time to have a second child is?

I always knew I wanted a 4 year gap, I wanted the time with my first to enjoy watching them grow and learn. I was lucky it panned out really. Both kids actually had the same due date too. 

Do you finish your children food if they leave it and it looks quiet tasty?

I’ve literally just been eating it as I type. Liam and I sometimes even bagsie the leftovers -_- 

Have your breasts changed post birth?

No much to my disappointment. I never got these beautiful big breast during pregnancy and none change to them at all. 

Do you wee your self post birth?

A little every now and then. If I really need to go I just can’t hold it like I used to be able to.

Have you ever dropped your baby accidentally?

No I did fall down the stairs whilst carry my son. Thankfully we were both fine I just bruised my ankle and couldn’t really walk in it for a few days. 

How often do you pretend to be on the toilet longer then you need to be for 5 minutes peace?

I wish I could get away with this but everything I go to the toilet the dog shoved her head round the door. I can never pee or poo in peace.

What is the first thing you choose to do if you get the rare opportunity to be child free and you don’t have to go to work that day?

This is very rare and only happens when we have plans. The last time we were child free we went to Taco Bell then went to see Blink182 in Leeds. 

Whats you honest feelings on parenting?

It’s tiring, draining, non stop always on the go craziness. It’s so full of poo if the baby isn’t crapping herself then the boy is wanting his arse checked. I sometimes feel like I’m going crazy but the cuddles and funny moments make it the best thing I’ve ever done with my life. With my son being so early and my daughter having to be stitched in it being a parent has really pushed me to many limits and I’ve learnt so much about what I can do and what liam and I can get through. I don’t even care if that’s cliché.

Thank you so much for taking time to answers these questions Jade, I love the age gap between  your children that is the ideal gap for me too so I have the same precious one on one time with the second one like I have the first, fingers cross it happens that way.Thank you for being so open and honest too!
