It’s the size of a piece of string.

Little tortoise is the size of a grape today, which grape I’m unsure of but a grape none the less. I’m not going to lie to you, at our supermarket raspberries are quite often bigger than grapes, this fruit thing’s on the wonk. I think I must be hormonal (no I’m not the pregnant one)…

Welcome to my world.

I’ve never known anything like it. Tappy is little miss motivation usually and morning sickness has turned her into a queasy couch potato, it’s turned her into someone who’s unable to get up to make herself a drink, it’s turned her into…me *shock horror face*. Apart from her feeling physically sick, which is horrible, it’s…

It’s not a toy you know!

No it’s not but it is excellent for dressing up. It might be glaringly obvious, but I don’t really have much baby talk for today seeing as I used that whole gonad thing yesterday, so here’s a picture of a baby in a Bjork dress. Person who made this I salute you! I really hope…

No cause for alarm, I’m just going to scare the shit out of you

When you get pregnant you phone the doctor and make an appointment for when you’re 6 weeks. You go along and the doctor gives you a pack with useful information in it, they book you in for another appointment a couple of weeks later where they’ll take blood and pee tests and book you in…

Happy 8 Weeks Existing Day!

The baby formally known as “Bloob” is no longer the size of a blueberry and is infact now the size of a tiny, tiny tortoise! My God I want this tortoise from a picture I stole off the internet. Thinking about it it could be a giant raspberry, I can’t honestly tell you if they’re…

Sympathy Pains

Today I’ve got pain in the bottom of my back which is getting really annoying. My partner regularly has back pains which have been even worse since getting pregnant. I’m telling myself they’re sympathy pains but there’s a niggly part of my brain telling me it could well have been doing all that lifting at…

I’m telling you, mustard is gender neutral.

So my partner’s only 8 weeks along and the baby is about the size of a blueberry, hence why it’s called “Bloob” when we talk this week, last week it was “Pip”, not very original I know. We haven’t told anyone yet (apart from family) as we’ve heard you’re best to wait until 12 weeks…

About Bloody Time!

So if you’re as smart as Monk or Columbo then you’ve probably figured out that I’m a lesbian who lives in a small town with my partner. Now if you’re even smarter than that you’ll have figured out one of us is pregnant too. Well done.

We’ve been together for 7 years, married for (almost) 4 and started trying for a baby last year (we actually first met up with our babydaddy a year ago yesterday).

Although we’d read online and known a couple of people who’d tried for years we naturally assumed it would happen really quickly for us, even if we kept saying different. We did start a tumblr when we were trying to conceive but honestly it started getting way too depressing not having anything positive to say and so we stopped.

We tried every month since August 2015 when my partner was ovulating and she finally fell pregnant this March and so is about 8 weeks pregnant now. Thank god because she had said in January she was only going to try 2 more times before she would give up and I would start trying (I’m a little younger so it made sense for her to go first).

Anyway as we were walking around kiddicare earlier today it became obvious we’re going to stick out like a sore thumbs in the parenting world of our town. Not that we hadn’t thought about this but I think some of our future experiences will be worth keeping a record of.

My partner already experienced a doctor who’d never heard of AI (artificial insemination) before. This blew my mind since it was something I already knew about in the 90’s as a teenager with no medical experience. Oh well, what can you do? 🙂

Finally we have the good news and happy things to write about plus it’s only due on my birthday :D!!
