My weeks change every Monday which is very handy! On the Sunday of week 16, as I was going to bed I said to my boyfriend, "Babe, my belly feels weird. It's hard to explain, it's painful but moreso really uncomfortable and gross feeling especially as I sit down." The next morning I was 17 … Continue reading 17 week pregnancy update
At 15 weeks I saw a lull in pregnancy symptoms which was amazing. The lack of energy for the 4-6 weeks prior was draining physically but mentally too and it was actually exciting to feel energy again after what had seemed like a lifetime. Time really does drag when you're literally dragging your feet. I … Continue reading 15&16 weeks, back in the land of the living!
On the day I got to 13 weeks I got up early at about 6.30am to use the bathroom, I had been struggling with fatigue, dizzyness and low blood pressure from 11 weeks so although I felt a little whoozy as I got up, I thought nothing of it. The next thing I knew, I … Continue reading 13-14 week pregnancy update
At 12 weeks and 1 day I met up with my boyfriend and we went to the hospital for my first scan. I was so excited to see our little Peanut for the first time.

It's one of the most effective forms of contraception and it lasts for 3 years, which was a huge draw for me. My options for contraception were pretty limited though as I had a history of … Continue reading The Implanon that would not die…
I've always been baby obsessed. I first learned what a midwife was when I was 5 and my little brother was born. I visited my own mama in the hospital and I could not believe there was a job where you got to hold tiny babies all day. At age 5, I obviously was oblivious … Continue reading Deciding to have a baby
My boyfriend and I got together in the Summer of 2013. He gatecrashed my house warming with a mutual friend and sparks flew the first night. I don't think love at first sight is possible but there was definite lust at first sight and there was something about this guy that no other guy had … Continue reading How it all started… meeting Daddy
