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…

Overcoming the Fear of Miscarriage

If you have experienced a miscarriage, how has it affected your subsequent pregnancies or desire to conceive again? This is the question posed to us on a website I found on Pinterest (I will link it down below…) and it is one that I am currently thinking about right now. This year (currently) I have…

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…

This week…

This past week has been nothing short of s*** and a blur. I don’t know what to think. I don’t know what to feel. And I feel out of sorts. For those wondering, please read back to my previous post Not the news I wanted… and that pretty much explains it. I have been trying…

Not the news I wanted…

Well, unfortunately Monday was a bad day. In fact it was a really bad day. As I mentioned in my post Nervous wait… I had an ultrasound booked as I had been bleeding for a week with no real reason. Well, that reason was made apparent at the ultrasound. I have lost our baby again…….

Tea Room Chatter….

I was sitting in the tea room at work on Monday. For my break. I was sitting there with the team minding my own business and then these two ladies started talking about pregnancy, miscarriages and abortions. Now, I had been a little upset recently (as I explained in my previous post) about my miscarriage…

Sitting here….

Currently sitting in my bed listening to music, (Here to Show the World-Dolph Ziggler [WWE]) and I was trying to nap. I got crabby yesterday because I didn’t get a nap and today I have the opportunity to have one and I can’t. I can’t nap. So wrestling music in my headphones going, my diffuser…

On my way….

Well, I did my weekly weigh in this morning and man, am I stoked! It may only be a small but I feel so proud. I lost 1.2kg and 3.8cm off my body this week! I was hoping for this kind of loss this week so I’m so glad that we are going in the…

Bit of a loss this week..

Well, this is kind of the news that I wanted to see first thing this morning. As you know, I have made it my mission to lose weight and get generally healthier and fitter following my miscarriage and D&C. So, I have decided to take advantage of the fact that I have signed up for…
