Ummmm I'm back!

Ah yes well, to say it's been a while would be a tad of an understatement!

My last blogpost was back on August 30, when I was under the weather. Where do I start from there?

How's about some news?  Something along the lines of WE'RE PREGNANT!!!!

Yes, my under the weatherness from August was also morning sickness, altho I wasn't 100% sure at the time!

We returned from our Honeymoon on August 9, and on August 26 at 2am we got 2 lines on our home pregnancy test!

I had been feeling sick for a few days, and had an odd full/heavy feeling in my tummy, I thought oh wow what if.  So went and bought some preg tests, the first 3 came back negative, but I was sure something was up, so I kept buying & taking them!  Then at 2am on Aug 26, I got up to go to the loo, and thought bugger it I'll test again, and up came the 2 lines, I ran in and woke up hubby waving the stick in his sleepy eyes.
Test 1 - on day 35 of my cycle

Test 2 & 3 - on day 36 of my cycle
Test 4 - day 37 of my cycle
Our GP confirmed our home test by blood test on August 31!

From August until 2 days before Christmas I had dreadful 24x7 nausea and vomiting, I was vomiting up to 20-25 times a day, and about 5 times overnight, I just about nightly awoke with vomit on it's way and had to run to the toilet!  Life wasn't much fun for those 5 months!

At Christmas we drove 15 hours each way to my hometown to have Xmas with my family (we told my family via Skype on Fathers Day, saying that hubby would have a very different Fathers Day in 2012, they got the hint!

Since Christmas I haven't had much nausea and only a few vomits, more related to heat/tired than morning sickness, I think.

We're now at 29 weeks, and have met with the great midwives at John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle, and have been to our first 2 ante-natal classes. I'm reading everything I can on natural childbirth, to try and overcome my birth fears, I want/hope/would like to go as natural as I can, but we shall see.

Everyone has been calling us old fashioned, with us conceiving a honeymoon baby, but we feel so lucky and blessed to have 'fallen' so quickly, old fashioned or not we'll take it :)

So in answer to one of my initial 'Can We Do It Questions'


Till next time, I promise it won't take so long!


  1. Awww that's so awesome! Congratulations! Glad your back too :)

    1. Thanks Anne, I'll certainly be less quiet from now, now that I'm not feeling like death warmed up :)

  3. Congratulations to you both. Hope to see you here more often but know that things are going to be busy for you.


    1. Thanks Barb, definitely busy, but loving it :)

  4. Oh WOW! Congratulations, that is fantastic news... I'm really happy for you although it's a shame about the morning sickness....
    Enjoy this next journey, it's the most amazing thing one can ever experience... And beware, it can be addictive... :)

    1. Thanks, the morning sickness was just horrid, but that 5 months of torture seem a long time ago now I'm over it and can feel bubs moving round all day everyday! I'm hoping I won't get too addicted :)

  5. Glad your back Mel and congratulations!
