This has got to be the most long-awaited, emotional blog posts I’ve ever written. I’ve been wanting to write these words for SO LONG and today is finally our day, our time to spread the good news – V and I are expecting a baby! Meet Mini-Peaches.
You might have been wondering why I’d gone a bit quiet over the last 3 months, well, now you know. Around May time, I suddenly disappeared from Snapchat, my daily Instagrams went to the wayside and although I tried my best to keep up with my blog, there were days (weeks) where I couldn’t do anything. It’s such a relief to finally tell people that I haven’t had some ongoing mystery illness and confess where I’ve been. Keeping something so big from my blog was so difficult, I wanted to shout it from the rooftops!
It’s been such a long journey, I conceived through IVF and we’ve been through 18 months of relentless Dr’s appointments to get to this point. I’ve had to learn to inject myself, I’ve given myself over 100 injections, I’ve had an operation and over 30 ultrasounds. I’ve also done 25 pregnancy tests and had my share of heartbreak along the way. This wasn’t easy, but we are here….. finally, and I’m the happiest I could ever feel, I literally feel I’m bursting (in more ways than one).
So, we are 13 weeks on Monday and the first trimester will be over. Everyone tells me the second trimester is the ‘Honeymoon period’ so I’m looking forward to what the next few months bring. Hopefully over the next trimester my morning sickness will fade and I’ll have a bit more energy ( instead of my current habit of falling asleep EVERYWHERE, oops) – let’s not even mention baby-brain, it’s crazy! I threw dog food in the washing machine instead of feeding it to the dog (amongst many other ridiculous antics). I’m also eagerly awaiting mini-peaches first kicks, although we’ve already seen him/her wiggling about on the ultrasound, I just can’t feel it yet.
So, you might notice blog my change slightly over the next few months. The main purpose of my blog when it began back in 2012 was to keep a diary of my life, so it feels right to document my pregnancy as we go along. I’m really hoping you’ll enjoy reading our story but I hope to keep a balance of my usual style blog posts too. I guess I just need to find my feet with this brand new topic, I’d love to hear what you’d like to read about! I’ll be sharing my IVF journey next, that’s a topic that’s been burning in my chest to put onto paper (well, screen) so watch out for that one.
So, my news is finally out of the bag – it feels so weird to finally be able to tell you all. I am showing already so I was running out of baggy clothes to hide under and tales of large dinners and extravagance! 😉 Please do let me know if you are expecting too or if you know any great pregnancy/mummy blogs – as a first time Mum I’ll need all the help I can get!
Lots of Love,
Fizzy Peaches, V, Robbie and now…… finally, our Mini-Peaches.
