The week in pictures (26 weeks)

I was in the US this week for work and have a whole bunch of pictures and have been completely jetlagged since I got back yesterday, so thought I would post the pictures rather than lots of words! (Phew, I hear you exhale with relief!) London before I left… the commute is nice! So last…

Viability! (24 weeks)

I sort of can’t believe it but we somehow reached viability last week. 24 weeks! It’s the division between the medics not trying to save the baby, versus being in with a chance of saving him if he were born prematurely. (I am hoping this does not happen.) Baby B still seems teeny but he…

Dead legs and other stories (21 weeks)

Yesterday we made it to 21 weeks! Which is kerrazee. I celebrated by going to hospital… Which wasn’t exactly the plan, but I guess who ever gets what they planned for? I think I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was struck by this awful dead leg thing and it was super horrible. Well…

Window shopping (20+5 weeks)

It sort of feels like everything has moved on quite a lot in the past week, even though it’s just another week. I suppose maybe in terms of how I’ve been feeling about this pregnancy and coming round to the idea that, umm, maybe I will end up having a baby after all. I don’t…

Sh*t just got real (20 weeks)

WTF, OMG and other acronyms… Holy potato, we are 20 weeks!   How the hell did that happen?!   Answer: I think I’ve got to the stage where I just sort of try to live my life without thinking about it too much, and it just sort of crept up on me.  How on earth…

Just for kicks – boom boom (19 weeks)

So after my pep talk from various people including our very own Courtney (love her!), I decided this week to combine not caring if people noticed I am pregnant with the unseasonable London heatwave… I broke out the maternity frocks.  I don’t know if it’s just the maternity clothes that make me look more preggers,…

IVF 2: What’s this all about then? (18.5 weeks)

I’m still here! I have like a million excuses as to why I’ve been blogging so seldom, but I’m sure you’re all sick of hearing them so I’ll just say sorry (because I’m sure you’re waiting on the edge of your seat for my update *British sarcasm*) and hope that I can remember all the…

IVF 2: Telling the boss, and other stories (17 weeks)

17 weeks today*. Crazy to think. I’m still in that hinterland of wondering if this pregnancy will “stick”, and trying to disguise my growing belly. At the moment, I look properly pregnant in casual clothes (ie fitted tops and maternity jeans with a belly band) and just fat in work clothes (the few clothes that…

IVF 2: In the club

It’s about time I did an actual pregnancy update rather than a load of random blethering. So if you’re bored by those things, feel free to skip! I’m 16+5 weeks pregnant today*, which is nuts. According to my pregnancy app, baby is somewhere between the size of an avocado (week 16) and a navel orange…

IVF 2: Like, actually pregnant (almost 16 weeks)

I don’t know why it’s so hard to update nowadays. I think it’s because I’m actually pretty busy at work, and then when I’m outside work, I’m quite busy too. Tonight I went to a book reading for a book that I partly crowd funded! Very exciting! (I was one of hundreds so it’s not…
