"Edited to Add"....

This started as a pregnancy blog when I fell pregnant in May 2009 after four years of finding a donor, doing all the counselling / paperwork / tests and trying.

And now, thanks to a 4WD which skidded onto our side of the road, killing our baby daughter at 34w and injuring me, my partner and two of my stepdaughters on 27 December 2009, it has turned into something else. We didn't want this something else, but apparently it is all we've got to go on with.

Best sound ever!

The quick swish-swish of a heartbeat much too fast to be mine!

It took my poor GP ages to find it (halloumi was higher up than she expected) but once we heard it, it was unmistakeable. Now we just have to see if I have enough patience to wait another 2 weeks to tell my employers... (we're officially at 12 weeks now, but my GP strongly recommended waiting till 14 weeks to bust the news)


  1. That's so exciting! I'm all happy-teary ...

  2. Heeee! Thanks honey! Such a beautiful thing to hear.

  3. It really IS the best thing ever to hear! So happy that things are moving right along.

  4. Thanks Pufferfish - we couldn't wipe the smile off our faces all day.
