"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.

Famous last words

You know that line I was spouting not so long ago about feeling nauseous but not getting to the point of actually throwing up? Ha. Spoke too soon. Bleugh! Nothing like being on your knees in the bathroom at 6am to start the day.


  1. Urgh! I hope it doesn't last all day and a quick 6am barf does the trick. I've got a peevish belly myself, but so far, not too bad.

  2. I'm so sorry. I'm doing everything in my power not to throw up...I HATE throwing up. Way to hang in there as long as you did.

  3. Oh baby, urgh.

    Is it really awful to say I'm kind of pleased because I think it's a good sign?

    Wish I was there to make you cups of peppermint tea.

  4. Thanks for lovely thoughts. Thankfully, as long as I eat (and keep eating - like a non-stop eatin' choo-choo train!) it seems to go away. El Prima asked me last night, "why is there a banana on your bedside table?"

    I blame the completely un-nutritious conference food from the day before. (their idea of "vegetarian" food was two deep fried corn and potato patties with baked potatoes... I like carbs, but that is just nuts!)

    And yes, I promise I am taking this as a good sign of our amazing good luck. Yesterday I had been grazing all day and successfully staved off the queasies, and got myself all worried, so I waited 40 minutes before nibbling on anything, and queasiness dutifully appeared once again.
