had an amazing week full of birthdays and anniversaries! I'm feeling
fantastic with no complaints! Belly grows by the day and body is
starting to embrace the pregnancy! I'm filling out but know that I'm
still active and healthy so I'm loving the change! Baby constantly
surfs the belly but my body and mind are used to it now! Still loving
all my foods and the boy definitely loves the chocolate. Ok Ok it's really me that loves the chocolate but its all about balance right! This week I felt baby boys hiccups for the first time. It was on Easter Sunday night. At 10.15pm after a full day of eating both Grandma and Nans cooking Baby Boy sure did let me know he was full and satisfied.This 2nd trimester has been
perfectly amazing and I can't believe I only have 1 week left until we hit the 3rd! This 26th
week has been very special and I have enjoyed every second.
Weeks! I'm feeling awesome and
just seriously enjoying every moment! I'm growing by the second so
that's a big change that my body is getting used to and yes I'm not
sleeping and it's hard to turn in bed and I have pelvic pain at night
but pffffttt I'll take it all for this baby!! I'm proud and so happy
with how this 2nd trimester has been and I'll be sad to see it go!
Countdown is on til the 3rd! Bring it on! Gotta keep my head in the game
and I'll be fine! My mind is powerful! This week we had our OB appointment which I will update below. We set up baby's cradle in our bedroom beside our bed and it made it just that little bit more real. Its hiding away in the corner covered up with sheets so Miss Molly doesn't claim it as her own but it's there ready. Talk about prepared. I'm still going for nice strong walks at the gym and am eating perfectly. Still not stopping yet. This week I couldn't sleep so was just playing around with my belly and baby and I gave each other a high five through my skin! I lost it! It was amazing! 27 Weeks you were amazing and eventful!
Weeks! We are officially in the 3rd trimester! I am so sad to see the
2nd go! It was a very special time for me and I felt so much joy,
happiness and peace! I will never forget it! This week we finally asked
our special friends to be Baby's godparents! We made this decision well
before baby was even conceived but waited for the right time! I had my
glucose test this week and passed with flying colours! Baby is getting
bigger and I'm finally feeling movement in the top parts of my belly!
I'm getting bigger and my belly button is pushing out! I've had an
emotional week with a few sad moments but I think it's just me dealing
with the transition of feeling awesome to getting bigger and starting to
really feel pregnant! It's all getting real and I'm just learning to
take it day by day and keep my mind happy!! We celebrated Mothers Day this week and was so special to know that I was finally a mother and in a years time I will be holding our almost 1 year old boy! What a dream! Bring on the next few
months! I've got this!
I can't stroke his face, I can't kiss his cheeks, I can't hold his precious hand,
but I can feel him, love him and cherish him because he is mine and I am his.
He is growing inside my body and together as a team we are creating one special boy
Today on Mothers Day I am so grateful for this special gift I am blessed with.
A precious piece of jewelry that I will always treasure.
Elephant ~ this beautiful strong creature was our symbol during our IVF
journey and will now be with me every day through to the end of my
pregnancy and as we welcome our son into the world. The elephant is a
symbol of protection, good luck, wisdom and fertility and I will cherish
We had a beautiful lunch on our front lawn with my Mum and Grandma. It was so nice to just have a relaxing day spent with the ones I love.
Happy Mothers Day
For those who are holding their babies in their arms, bellys and hearts.
This year, like every year, we had breakfast at my parents with our entire family. I love these breakfasts. I love my family. We are a little bit awesome :-) I just have so much fun with everyone and I love our gatherings. It is crazy to think that this will be our last year as 'just us 2' Next year the Easter Bunny will be visiting OUR little bunny. How Amazing.
Happy 4th Wedding Anniversary to my one true love!
I can't believe this will be our last year of it being 'just us 2' Our infertility has been a blessing in disguise. We have been given 4 beautiful years of being together, just us, and having that special time to appreciate each other, learn from each other, and find ourselves as individuals and as a team. We know how to deal with the hard times and celebrate the good times. Our baby will change our world and our relationship will shift but I am so grateful to have had these 4 years to form our foundation, to from a friendship that can not be broken. We are both stubborn and strong willed people and we stand up for ourselves and our relationship. We are honest and raw and there are no secrets. We fight hard and love hard and there is no doubt that our love is unbreakable. I couldn't imagine taking on this new stage of our lives as parents with anyone else.

I think Baby's spirit wanted to be in this photo and clearly made his presence known by shinning right in the middle of Mummy and Daddy.
