Labour and Delivery Story - INDUCED - Epidural


Hi everyone here is the labour and delivery story of how my little princess arrived !! It took 14 hours, 2 epidurals, a yoga ball and a lot of pain haha. We went in at 11am on 11/12/16 to be induced and was given the pessary at 1pm. By 2pm my contractions were that strong i already started on the gas and air and was 3cm. My contractions sped up that fast i was given an injection to slow everything down. I was taken up to the delivery suit and asked for an epidural. The first one had shooting pains down my left leg and i could still feel everything, it took 45 mins for the specialist to come back out of surgery to try again and even then it wasn't perfect as i could still move my legs and feel slight pain. By this time there wasn't much more they could do so gave me diamorphine, which helped me have a sleep. I was examined early Monday morning to find we were 10cm and ready to push. However my contractions had slowed down that much they became irregular and had to have something to speed them back up. Over an hour of pushing and she had finally made her arrival. We were taken to the ward a few hours later and made sure i was completely better after my epidurals. We were able to come home at 6pm that evening and i couldn't wait to see what Monkey thought of her. He ran out to the car and threw himself in overjoyed to meet his little sister !!

Christmas Activity Craft - Baked Salt Dough Tree Decorations

Heres how we made salt dough trees.
Like this?? Check out my Youtube Channel here :A Childminding Mummy

Recipe : 1 Cup Plain Flour
              1/2 Cup Salt
              Less Than a Cup of Water
              Food colouring

Start with the Flour, Salt and Food colouring. Combine them together and start to slowly add the water. Keep adding more colouring if the colour is not strong enough. Once the mixture has gone like a dough ball DON'T add more water.

Make a stencil out of paper or buy one. Cut out the tree shape and use a straw to add a hole for the string. The children can then push holes into the dough, but not all the way through.

Then they are ready for the oven, bake on low heat (75c) for at least 4 hours. Keep turning them over so both sides dry out.
Once dry they are ready to paint with bright colours in the holes.

Leave to dry and add some string to hang up !

Christmas Activity Craft - Christmas Wreath




Here's how we made Christmas Wreath's with the childminding children.
Like this?? Check out my Youtube Channel here : A Childminding Mummy




First start with a paper plate and paint it a lovely shade of green, make sure you get right to the edges as when its dry you need to cut out the middle.

We downloaded images from google such as, bows, bells, baubles and holly. Added them to a word document and printed enough out for each child. Then glued them to the plate ring.
 

And to finish it off add a bow and some string to hang up !
