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!…

Can’t decide and need help….

Hi there everyone, I am stuck at a crossroads in life. This past week my daughter has been sick (she is 20 months now, that’s just gone way too quick!) and so I had one day off from work and then I had to leave work half way through my shift to go home to…
