Firstly – a big SORRY for anyone who reads my blog. I haven’t died, been abducted, joined a cult, become a hermit or decided to avoid the internet. I have, however, become “that blogger” that promises to keep writing and then life takes over & they completely forget!
So a little update – I’m now 20 weeks pregnant with my SON (yes, yes, we found out the flavour at the 20 week scan) – proudly through IVF using my last (eeek!) frozen embryo. I’ve already got my first son (now a toddler) running about the house so I’m going to be surrounded by boys… even both my cats are male!
So far this pregnancy can be characterized by: throw up. Yes! I have been the delighted recipient of 14 weeks of horrendous morning sickness, throwing up every day. Thankfully the last week has been better so there will hopefully be many non-vom days ahead (fingers crossed!).
Halfway through this pregnancy now and feeling a bit sad that it will be my last one. There is no way that we will be going through IVF again – its been such an experience and cost that even if we wanted a bigger family, our personal decision is that we wouldn’t do it to ourselves. I’m quite happy to think of a future without raging hormone surges and injections (well, at least until menopause which is hopefully a little way off!). AND pregnancy for me has not been easy in the least! However as I said, it is tinged with sadness and I keep trying to remind myself to enjoy every little experience that we’re having now – my growing belly, the little kicks and flutters from baby, starting to think about getting things ready for the arrival in August.
So there’s my update! I will try and blog more… and I’m looking forward to now catching up on everyone that I follow. I hope success and sunshine has come to you since I last was on here xx
