Oops! It's been a while.

Well I do have a bit of an excuse. We went away for 2 weeks to Tassie, so haven't been near a computer. We had a good time, but I think everyoe hyped it up a bit too much. We didn't think it was as great as everyone had said it would be. I suppose we were also comparing it to all the time we spent in Europe. You can't really compare to that and there are only so many trees you can look at!

Anyway, we had our NT scan just before we went away, well the day we went away actually. All was good and we have a very active little person in there. Heartbeat of 160. Eating it's hands (hopefully it is not a thumb sucker!). Results came back as 1:7225 which is great. Very minimal chance.

We got some great pics. The 3D ones are the best so I will pop a few on to see. (not letting me will try again later!)

I still can't believe it is real!

We had another scan today and all is going well! A strong little heartbeat AND we could see our little poppet moving. It was just so amazing! Beyond words. You can even see her little arms and legs.

8 Weeks!

I can't believe that I have made it to 8 weeks. I am still trying not to get excited, but at the same time this is the furthest we have gotten by far. Each day I feel myself getting evermore hopeful. I start to plan things out in my head and see us as a family. I hate it because I know I will have further to fall if things go wrong. But I really want to enjoy this pregnancy. I guess it is the curse of infertility. We are never going to enjoy this pregnancy the way a fertile couple would.

On a different note...

I am already starting to show! Many of my clothes are getting tight already. If I wear my tighter tops you can really tell that I am either pregnant or I have suddenly put on a fair amount of weight. I need to go and buy some looser tops and pants, but don't want to jinx myself by buying anything too early. Maybe I could just buy a couple of things that are a size bigger, but not maternity wear. Ah the dilemma of it all.

Well I decided to take the day off today. I just needed a sleep in and to be able to sloth around on the lounge. This tiredness business and all day queasy feeling, coupled with the heat really wears you down. Not that I am complaining. It is all a great sign to show that our little one is hanging in there. I start to panic if I suddenly feel ok for a while!

Enough from me. Thank you to all my well wishers. I really appreciate your support!

Getting Closer!


We had our heartbeat scan on Tuesday and finally saw a HEARTBEAT. We have waited so long to see one and now we finally have. It was so amazing, I was absolutely stunned. Especially when the doctor pointed out a second sac. I nearly fell off the table. She said it wouldn't be viable as it was half the size and there was no heartbeat. But twin A had a very strong heartbeat, so it is all looking good.

It is sad to lose one baby, but exciting to still have one in there. But we are still taking each day as it comes. We are not getting our hopes up yet!

Dear Hubbies Cocktail!

A fellow blogger asked about the cocktail of vitamins and minerals I have my dear hubby on. I don't know if it is what helped us or a combination of things, but from what I have read it is meant to help!

Bioflavinoids: 1000 mg daily
Vitamin C: 1000 mg 3 times a day with meals
Zinc: 30 mg daily
Vitamin E: 400 IU daily
CoQ10: 50mg twice daily
Mens multivitamin: Once daily

I found the following website very handy! In particular, I read the section of varicole as that is what we think is the cause of DHs problem. There is a list of vitamins under alternative treatment.

As for our little poppet, so far so good!
