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, Making 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…

Making something special..

So, on YouTube I am subscribed to JWoww’s page and I find some of the videos actually quite interesting. The one that has got me this year is JWOWW and Meilani Making Ornaments Now, she has done one like this before but because this year there is something special that I want to kind of…

Whats been happening…

Well, sorry I haven’t been as post-y as I probably should be. As I said in my previous post, Secret news on the downlow… , my partner and I are expecting (hopefully…) bub number 2 in the new year (End of July to be precise but anyhow…). Since that post I have seen the doctor…

Overcoming the Fear of Miscarriage

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…

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…….

Nervous wait…

Right now, I am a nervous wreck! I have an ultrasound at 3:50pm today as I have had some bleeding going on for the last week and it’s to check that I have either been miscarrying or something has hit stuff that it wasn’t supposed to.. (read back the posts Hospital visits are not fun…
