Mom Update: Where I’ve been and Mila’s trip to the ER

Hey my loves!

I know I’ve been MIA for awhile now. If you read my posts you may know that I’m figuring out how to balance work and mom life as well as posting frequently on the blog. I recently changed work locations so I do have a longer commute, plus dropping off Mila at day care and with traffic by the time I get home I’m exhausted, to the point where all I want is sleep and household chores have been a struggle.Being a mom is a full time job in itself so I haven’t had time for anything else, if I didn’t heavily rely on coffee to get me through the day, I sure do now! While were on the subject of coffee, if you have any DIY recipes for iced coffee I would love to know!

Literally Starbucks just takes my money since I’m always on the go and this mama is on a budget. I’ve also felt just a tad unmotivated recently, like there are so many great successful blogs out there, how can I compete with that? I have so many ideas for posts and the direction I want this blog to go in, but will people really read my blog? But you know what, even through the ups and downs I have to pull myself together and just do it. I’ve been wanting to do this blog for so long and now that I’m here, there’s no way that I can give up now.

Whether only a few people read my blog or not, I do it for my supporters that enjoy my blog and that follow me and also, for myself. I always have to remember everyone starts somewhere and even though I’m not where I want to be yet, I will get there, it just takes time, so with all that being said I’ve been trying to be positive and motivate myself to be consistent with my blog.I will always let my supporters know that I appreciate them so much for reading posts or following me, you have no idea how much it means to me, thank you!

So let’s talk about Mila.

We had our first experience taking Mila to the ER, it all started when Mila woke up at night coughing a lot, so to take it back she’s had a bad cough at night for a few weeks now, plus an ear infection to top it off, so she’s been on antibiotics for that. I thought it was just a cough, but she threw up, and continued to throw up all night long. As a new mom, I always call the dr because you just never know, and us moms worry about our babies,I called like multiple times, she wasn’t keeping anything down even pedialyte. She was in pain and barely got any sleep so around 2 am I decided it was best to take her to the ER because she couldn’t keep anything down and I was worried about her getting dehydrated.

We were there probably a good 3 hours, and with hardly any sleep it was a little rough but we got through it. As we still aren’t 100% sure why she was getting so sick to her stomach, maybe food poisoning who knows but the good news is that they gave her medicine for nausea and ever since she was able to sleep and hasn’t gotten sick since. We didn’t get much sleep so she’s been taking frequent naps and her stomach is still a little sensitive but she’s a strong girl and is doing much better now. As a parent it can definitely be scary seeing your baby in pain or sick especially when there’s not much you can do, but moms will do anything they can for their little ones. I’m so thankful that she is ok and doing better. Any moms out there have any experiences or trips to the ER? Share your stories in the comments.

Talk to you soon!
