Okay, its time for me to come clean. I have been neglecting my blog and struggling to get through emails and I want to apologise to everyone who I have been slack to over the last few months, and say a big thank you to those who continued to pop by here or email me to see how I am. You have made a hard time a little bit easier.
The truth is we are over the moon to be welcoming a new baby girl to our family in a few more months! As thrilled as I am, I have struggled the past few months with extreme nausea and tiredness. And then just when that passed we found out we were high risk for Downs Syndrome and had to wait it out to get an amnio done and receive the results, which thankfully were good.
I really wanted to share the news earlier, but I struggle with pregnancy. I want to glow and be happy and feel nothing but joy, but that just isn't how it is for me. I have always found it a challenge but in 2004 we lost a precious baby girl at 18 weeks and since then all the joys of pregnancy have been taken from me. I just hold my breath and wait for it all to be safely over. I know all too well, that things dont always go smoothly, you are never safe from the threat of loss, and all I can do to get through it, is take it quietly one day at a time. So forgive me my absence both here and around blogland. The sickness and tiredness have now passed and I am looking forward to visting everyone and seeing what you all have been up to.
