23 weeks - pre-natal depression, hiccups and kicks!

I am officially 23 weeks today. It seems to be a significant milestone because literally, just over the weekend, I’m feeling many things for the first time. It also means I only have 3 weeks until I reach 3rd trimester!

Fabulous Friday

Happy Fabulous Friday all. I hope you’ve all had a good week. What’s fabulous about today is cleaners, breast feeding chairs and major milestones. To have all on the same day makes this the most fabulous Fabulous Friday I’ve had in some time!

Tears, obstetricians and ducks!

 As we pulled out of our driveway on the way to the obstetrician’s today, I saw the most amazing site. Just 100 metres from our driveway, a family of ducks was trying to cross the road. It was weird because we live on a very busy street and not close to water. But what I saw was a good lesson in parenthood.

Remembering my Spirit Babies

Towards the end of last year, I came across the following passage. I found it enormously comforting at the time as I think I found it a few weeks after my miscarriage. For some reason, I’ve been thinking of it a lot of late so had to delve into some old Facbeook messages to find it. It’s a story about moving on from loss.

20 ways to be a good Mother

Yesterday’s post got me thinking about the mistakes I’m already making as a Mother. It was a rude wake up call to a few things I need to get sorted before Sticky arrives. So, in thinking about that, I’ve come with my list of 20 ways to be a good Mother.

22 weeks - the dodgem cars begin

22 weeks – My Mother sent me this pic which I just love. It couldn’t come at a better time as I had another meltdown over the weekend when my brother told me about a woman at his work who lost her baby 5 weeks before it was due. While I love the fact that I will be Sticky’s protector when she gets here, I worry about who’s protecting her until then?

Fabulous Friday

Happy Fabulous Friday all! I really can’t complain about this week as I’ve only had a 4 day week, but man, I’ve had to cram a lot into those 4 days. So, the thing that’s fabulous today, is finding 5 spare minutes to actually post!

The joy of leg cramps

One of the joyful (and I say that with every ounce of sarcasm I can muster) experiences of pregnancy is excruciating leg cramps in the middle of the night. They are now a regular part of my pregnancy experience and they suck!

21 weeks - a carrot with legs!

I’m officially into my 21st week. Sticky is approximately the size of a carrot and will now put on an average of 60 grams a week for the next 6 or 7 weeks.  She must be getting big because she decided to make her presence felt over the weekend!

Fabulous Friday

Happy Fabulous Friday all. I hope your week hasn’t been as crazy as mine! On the bright side it is Friday and today, I officially start my babymoon!

A lesson in pregnancy from Beyonce

Last night while channel surfing, I happened across a documentary on Beyonce. The first words I heard was “…after the pain of suffering my miscarriage” so I thought I’d better watch.

The progression of life

Throughout this pregnancy I’ve had 5 scans and each time I’m amazed at how life progresses.

20 weeks - on the downhill slide!

 20 weeks – I am officially over half way and am now on the down hill slide. Thank god because if the last few days are anything to go by, I could be in for a rocky road.

Riding the see-saw

The euphoria of yesterday’s scan has been replaced with back pain, tiredness and indigestion. It’s sad really that pregnancy can bring you such highs and lows but I guess that’s the see-saw adventure of it all!

It's a girl!

So it’s official, we have a girl. I am enormously relieved that the whole time I’ve been referring to Sticky as a she, I was correct. Thank god I don’t have to now get into the habit of saying he!

A freak out moment

I’ve just had my first experience at bleeding and I’m ever so slightly freaking out. I suppose I should be thankful for the timing giving tomorrow is my scan so we can check everything is ok.
