Who the hell am I?

My name is Marianna and I became a new Mum in 2015 at the age of 28. I married my gorgeous Husband in the same year and share custody of his 2 beautiful daughters aged 12 and 7. My incredible daughter Evie was born in August 2015, 3 months after I married my Husband. Yes thats right, 3 months! Evie wasn't planned, but my goodness she is an absolute gift.  Prior to becoming pregnant, I was sure I wasn't ready to be a Mum. But, as soon as I found out I was, I knew I was ready (somehow!).

On Valentines Day February 2017, I randomly took a pregnancy test we had lying around the house. Not expecting any results, I took the test. I had only been off the pill for 2-3 weeks. To my surprise it came back positive (1-2 Weeks). I gave birth to my beautiful Grace in October 2017. What a great baby she is!

They say everybody has the baby blues. What they don't tell you is how consuming it can become and what it can turn into. They also don't tell you just how long these 'blues' last. My blues turned into anxiety. The things I get anxious about can be ridicoulously stupid. The first time I actually realised this was when Evie hiccuped for the first time and I had no idea what to do, or what it meant and how to fix it! I had to remind myself (after googling of course) of what I do when I have the hiccups.....absolutely nothing.

I'm at the point where waking up every hour at night to check on  breathing isn't an option for me anymore. I needed to find a way to release the anxiety and this blog is it! In turn, I hope it helps if you are feeling anxious about being a new Mum, Step-Mum, or just anxious in general. I'd love to hear from you and your experiences too so please feel free to contact me and share your experiences.
