was 1993, when I was 4 years old, my Aunty Annie (mum's sister) was diagnosed with breast cancer (bc). I can remember my mum going into a different room with her to help change her dressings. Then they'd both come out and we would make little boxes out of old birthday cards. She died in … Continue reading To test or not to test.
I feel like New Years Eve is a little overrated. There is always such hype over the night and how you just know that this year will be different. This year will be your year. The year that you get your shit together, save money, lose weight, quit the job you fucking hate, travel more … Continue reading That Time I Broke My Neck.
SPD - Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction. In other words, the condition making my life incredibly difficult at the moment! More on that later! 25 weeks pregnant now and I'm stoked to know that our little bubba would be considered viable outside the womb! I'm being kicked CONSTANTLY throughout the day and night which I'm trying to … Continue reading 25 Weeks Pregnant + SPD.
Zucchini slice is life, obvs. This one though, is like none I've ever tasted before! So delicious and moist (surely I'm not the only one that hates this word.. but there's no better word to describe it!)! I can literally eat the entire thing in one sitting. It's from Belinda Jeffery's Mix and Bake. She … Continue reading Best Zucchini Slice ever.
After quite a few requests on Instagram, I decided to track a standard day of eating. This is definitely not how I eat everyday as pregnancy cravings and just lack of time/organisation/laziness ensure slip ups! But when I have my prep done and I'm not feeling like the toilet bowl is my best friend.. 😐 … Continue reading A Day of Eating.
As of today I am 23 weeks and 1 day! Whaaaat! I feel like time is going so.slowly. However, sitting here, reflecting over the past 20 weeks, while being pummelled from the inside, I realise that actually, it has gone pretty fast. I hadn't vomited in THREE WHOLE DAYS! I was feeling pretty stuck up … Continue reading Second Trimester (so far).
At 15 weeks and 2 days I felt my baby move for the first time. I was 95% sure at the time that that's what I'd felt. I knew that it was a bit early for a first baby however I'm so in tune with my body after the miscarriages that I pretty much … Continue reading Feeling baby’s first kick.
Scott and I have been together for 6 and a half years now. Crazy! Finally on January 4th this year he proposed! Every year we go to a tiny little beach side town called Port Hughes in the New Year. Scott used to go there every year with his family when he was younger and … Continue reading Engagement Photoshoot.
My first trimester would really be classed as uneventful although it certainly doesn't feel that way with the amount I've visited the toilet bowl! I was able to go to the gym everyday up until roughly 6 weeks when the sickness started. I went once or twice after that but pretty much almost passed out … Continue reading First Trimester.
This isn't my first pregnancy... nor my second. This is the third time I've been pregnant in a year. But more on that another time. Because of my previous losses and a couple of health issues, my doctor decided to refer us to Flinders Fertility (a fertility specialist clinic in Adelaide). After a bunch of … Continue reading Pregnant.
