My Baby Name

I know I shouldn’t have to justify my baby name but I’m having to. My partner hates the name I’ve chosen but I’m sticking to my guns on this. I’ve had his first name picked out since last year when we had the two miscarriages and every time I’m listening to the music associated with…

Secret news on the downlow…

Well, this has come as a surprise… I’m pregnant again.. This is my third pregnancy this year as my previous two have ended in miscarriage so I’m hoping that third time is a charm. I honestly don’t know how to feel at this point because I had it in my mind that I wasn’t going…

Statistically…

I’ve just been reading an article on the Huggies website about getting pregnant after miscarriage and came across something that I found rather interesting. Once the heartbeat shows on ultrasound, the chance of miscarriage is believed to just 10%. Once your doctor can hear the heartbeat with a Doppler, usually at around 11 – 12…

Is it really all that common?

*Disclaimer: This post contains quite graphic scenarios. If squirmish, stop reading now!* On Monday 24th September, I posted about the fact that I had been spotting/bleeding after my Ultrasound the week before. Well, this week it has gotten worse. It has gone from spotting then a small bleed to now being like a period and…

Doing it the right way

As you guys may be aware, last night I had it said to me, from my partner, that I need to lose weight. Last night I took it to heart as I have gone through a miscarriage recently, and subsequently, had to have it surgically taken care of as my body wouldn’t do it naturally…

Had a moment

I don’t know what to say other then, just now, I had a cry. I had a cry because my partner said a couple of things to me and didn’t seem to realize how much it upset me. He said two things to me. This is HIS house and when I argued that I pay…

I hate this…..

What I’m hating on at the moment is my body. It’s failing me big time. I can’t even bend down to stack the dishwasher without feeling pain. For those unaware (refer to my previous post), I had a D&C on Monday. I thought maybe my body would be a tad better today, (3 days later),…

Sometimes life throws a curve ball..

Well, the last few weeks have been tough. Really tough. We lost our baby at at the 7 week mark of our pregnancy. Back in the last week of April, on a Friday, my partner and I went to our third ultrasound. At the time we estimated that we were about 7 weeks along. When…

Does this look familiar?

OMG! Please tell me this is what other peoples bathrooms look like!  I keep looking at our bathroom and thinking ‘I really should go through it…’ I have that many products from skin cleansers to moisturizers to soaps to baby stuff…..I think we really should have a look through and see what we need to…

Voting on something that I shouldn’t have had to…..

I don’t understand it. Why should we have to vote on gay marriage when it should be a simple yes/no….I’m all for gay marriage and I don’t understand why there needed to be a postal vote. Politicians should be able to make the decisions themselves. I thought that that was what they were there for!…
