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

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…

It has gone from spotting then a small bleed to now being like a period and…

Hospital visits are not fun

And I’ve had two over the weekend. As my last post says, my partner and I are having baby #2, due May next year. I am so excited. After my miscarriage earlier this year, this has come both as a huge shock and also a quite pleasant surprise. In saying that though, I have been…
