He’s Here!

Those of you that follow my Facebook page will know that I posted a week or so back to say that Baby Boy had arrived!

… two weeks ago today; we welcomed to the world Noah Jupiter Pye — and what an incredible welcome it was!

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

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

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.

“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
