Happy, happy, happy, happy!

Oh happy day!

So, I’m approaching 26 weeks and had my first check-up with my consultant today; I’d not seen her since early December – and between then and now I had lots I was keen to find out/discuss.

First off I was starting to feel a bit concerned that my boy might be big… ‘big babies’ (and aaaalllllllll the associated complications that can come with them) are mentioned at *every* twist and turn of a type 1 pregnancy, plus people have regularly commented how big my bump is… being a first time mum I have nothing to compare it to; so a little bit of worry that my little boy perhaps wasn’t so little was loitering around in my head for sure.  Continue reading

Moving in more ways than one…

Well hello!

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

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.
