"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.

Not so flat-front...

I don't know about you, but flat-front pants are the staple of my work wardrobe. They are the trusted reliables I can always count on if I can't deal with finding appropriate stockings etc. But, funnily enough, they don't work so well with my new not-so-flat front. It is not a "bump" as such, just a bit of a bulge. I'm telling el Prima it doesn't count as a belly unless it is actual uterus - and she keeps telling me not to keep sucking it in every time she tries to look.

Other news - looks like I have a UTI - or rather, had, as it is now clearing up. Since I've only got one kidney, and have already lost one partly because of recurrent UTIs as a child (combined with other things), I was onto it pretty quickly, and trotted off to the doctor first thing on Saturday morning for some antibiotics - which seem to be doing the trick. But had a slightly scary Friday night when I had blood in my urine. Managed to drink 1.5L of cranberry juice yesterday, and am now adding dried cranberries to my snacks.
