Well… I have some NEWS!

It’s been months and months since I last blogged (not since my diaversary in February to be exact) – and what a time its been!

…. It was mostly spent moving, GETTING MARRIED, honeymooning, honeymooning some more – moving again…. and GETTING PREGNANT!!

{{Insert MUCH squealing here}}

…. So I’ve SO MUCH to share and update y’all with – and I plan to be back on this more with more… I’m thinking of a lil blog re-vamp too – it seems like such a long time ago that I started this blog…. but then it’s also kinda nice to have the whole “journey” here too. We’ll see :-)

But for now, the most bloody exciting part is THE BABY.

(sorry for all the use of capitals btw – it’s all just so exciting; bold and caps are my go-to right now)

I’m currently 15 weeks pregnant (or nearly 4 months for those who don’t use the confusing pregnancy counting lingo) – and for *anyone* who has juggled pregnancy with type 1, you’ll know there is a whole heap of new learning to do. I’ll share more on that along the way – for now I just want to share the happy bit. And it is so bloody happy.

24 weeks!

Hello Loves,

Well I thought it was about time I wrote a lil blog post, as I’m now nearly 6 months into this pregnancy – gosh, time is flying!

I hope you all had a brilliant Christmas and New Year? My Christmas was at home and quiet (I think I’m already nesting :) but lovely… New Year’s was a road trip to Scotland to stay in a gypsy caravan; also lovely – and this will make you laugh: as the clock struck midnight I was literally chewing on glucose tablets with a blood sugar of 2.8: Hypo New Year! :D

In between all the seasonal celebrations, I kept making a mental “note to self” to include bits and bobs that have been useful to me; in case they might be useful to you, but of course now I can’t remember half of them…

Let me try and recap…  Continue reading

My Pregnancy Vitamins

This came up in a blog post I was writing here, and got a little long :) so thought I’d separate it off into this post.

I wanted to share with you which supplements I’m taking – as I see it come up a lot on forums etc. Obviously we’re all really different, but these are the ones that work for me: Continue reading

Moving in more ways than one…

Well hello!

IMG_9059.JPG

We’ve moved – huzzah! Our new home is beeeeuitiful – we’re in a converted barn, on top of a hill, with the most glorious views of rolling hills surrounding us at every angle…. And I’m so happy that we’re in and it’s where our baby boy* will have his first home.

*Wait – did I tell you we’re having a boy yet??

We’re having a BOY!! 🎉

And with one kind of move, comes another… I’m *pretty* sure I’m starting to feel the lil guy moving…. it’s hard to say for certain as, being a first time mum, I don’t *really* know what I should expect to feel at this point – but I’m definitely feeling “something” going on in there – and I’m guessing it’s not just gas! ;-)

I’m now almost 18 weeks, and today we went for a Uterine Artery Doppler Scan Continue reading

“Diaversary”

Funny Pancreas

… February 15th marks 3 years since my diagnosis…. it’s a funny old date to know whether to mark; partially because whaddaya say/do?

YAY; my pancreas has stopped working!

Doesn’t really sound like something to shout all that much about…. but equally, ignoring a day that totally changed my life seems a bit lame too.

I was thinking about the journey of those three years – how it almost certainly started way before then – how grateful I am for my insulin pump now… and the many, many bits in-between. Continue reading

Putting it all into perspective: hypo’s, yoga – and time…

Kathryn Budig - Aim True

I’m typing this after a day in London where I went to Kathryn Budig’s workshop at Tri Yoga in Soho…. And I’m not gonna lie – my body is super, super achy today… but it’s that good kind of achy – that “damn I worked hard” achy – and it feels especially good cos my body was able to work that hard….  Continue reading
