Hi everyone my name is Lisa and I wanted to tell you a little bit about myself. I’m 33 although I tell my kids I’m 21 and so far thats what they tell everyone. We live in Bournemouth and absolutely love living by the sea, I was born and bred here and am surrounded by my wonderful family who all live close by.
I’m married to a amazing man called Duncan who is my rock and am thankful to him for putting up with me over the last 15 years. We have 2 little boys, William is 8 and Ben is 6. They are typical little mischievous and troublesome boys who I adore and wouldn’t change for the world even when they are driving me up the wall. We also have 2 little kittens Indy and Coco who are always running around the house and climbing up curtains but they do make life fun.
Recently we found out that we are expecting another little monkey to expand out family. I’m over the moon about our impending arrival due in January 2016. A third baby is something we’ve talked about for the last 4 years but due to some serious back issues it’s just had to take a back seat (no pun intended).
Finding out I was pregnant was clearly exciting but also slightly concerning with the back issues that I had. I had lots of questions and worries about how I would cope with the pregnancy and what I could expect over the next 8 months. My first port of call was searching google looking for information on pregnancy after lumber fusion or bad back in pregnancy. All I could find was a few posts regarding c-sections vs vaginal deliveries and medical websites with a lot of confusing jargon.
There was nothing that I could easily find from a mummy like me detailing their experiences and how they’ve coped through pregnancy. Now I can’t be the only woman out there to have the crazy idea of falling pregnant after this kind of surgery so I decided to create this blog to share my experiences and hopefully help other women like me out there.
I am not a medical professional, in fact I work in insurance for a big UK bank and am sat at a desk most days. Any information on my blog is just my personal experience and you should always consult a medical professional if you have any concerns about your health or that of your baby.
