I see it!

I went for my scan yesterday. I was so nervous going in as I have had bad experiences with second scans before (learning of my miscarriages…) but yesterday, I had tears of joy as I saw little bub and my heart has never felt so full. Baby Button (as my mum has called it) is…

It’s official

  Today I am officially 12 weeks! Officially ending my first trimester! I’m not telling people on Facebook or even in person until I have my scan next week. I have decided to have the scan as part of the testing for down syndrome. Any excuse for me to have an ultrasound and see (as…

Just a phone call

I just had a phone call from work. I was kind of expecting them to ask if I wanted to have today off. No, it was if I wanted to work tomorrow. I said I couldn’t. When I mentioned it to my partner who was standing in the room with me, he said I should’ve…

Emotional roller-coaster

I realized something yesterday while I was at work. It takes something so small to make me want to cry. I have noticed it before and made mention of it on one of my posts, Just had a moment, where my partner sent me an apology and it made me want to cry. And I’ve…

Update on the look…

In my post yesterday,┬áDo I really look it?, I posted comparison pictures between June last year and yesterday. Now, looking back at it, I realized that to do a proper comparison, I should be wearing the same clothes. So here are the pictures from June 2018 and today, wearing the same clothes….

Just had a moment

Oh my golly gosh! I just had a moment! I was texting my partner just now as I’m at home and he’s at work. My daughter and I had just been to the supermarket to get some stuff and we had seen him. He’s been a bit not himself this week. And his text message…

Do I really look it?

I was out with my partner and daughter today down the supermarket and we ran into someone who my partner knows. Now, she was immediately attracted to telling us how our daughter has grown (turned 3 on Friday last week and has grown up immensely) since the last time she saw her. Then the conversation…

Time for reflection

As 2018 comes to a close, I have decided to reflect on what a year I have had. I’ve hit rock bottom more times then I can count. My relationship has hit some of it’s lowest points. We have had 2 miscarriages within the space of 7 months, one of those required me to have…

The Finished product…

So here they are! In my last post,┬áMaking something special.., I spoke about how I was making some special items for family this year. I made some Christmas ornaments for the grandparents (Grandma and Nana both got the handprints….) and then my grandfather (daughter’s great-grandfather) and my brother both got the T ornaments. I really…
