4th time isn’t a charm, turns out that’s not even a saying!

So the 4th try wasn’t successful and baby daddy wasn’t around to try the month after so 5th attempt was postponed. At this point I feel like I’m going to go through the menopause before I get pregnant, this made me a bit naughty. I went to the doctor and explained the situation, only I…

Birthday Baby

A year ago today we had a tiny little pink blob to look after with a brand new face that we didn’t know. Today we have a big blobby pink thing with a face we know very well who makes us smile every day. Loads of people came round to see her today and luckily…

Where do babies come from?

Looking at past pictures of Edie and how much she’s grown it was making me think how she’ll be in the future. I was wondering about that moment when Edie will come to us and ask “how are babies made?”. I know a lot of parents try to avoid the subject and distract them with…

Pregnancy Belly

When we found out my partner was pregnant I insisted we took a photo of her growing belly every morning. In my typical style I forgot most of the time but I did get a lot. Here’s the video of our little monkey growing!

I will punch him in the face when I get strong

Yesterday we had our tour of the maternity ward. I still don’t know where to go. I’m sure if I just run in there shouting “Help! She’s having a baby!” someone is bound to help us out. Tappy quite fancies a water birth, I thought this seemed like a really good idea and so was…

Get off my land!

I need to apologise to my town. The name of this blog really came about as it’s easy to feel like the only lesbians who exist sometimes. Growing up here I would constantly hear homophobic things and general ignorance which I didn’t experience as much when living in a city. I came back here because…

Convinced myself I’m Handy Andy

I keep going on about how we’ve pretty much got everything we need but I had forgotten we needed a little table to put a lamp on. Being a bit of a hippy, I love recycling and making stuff, I’m also really tight! I nicked a pallet from work, got in the garden with a…

Dancing at the disco bumper to bumper

Tappy has a lovely little bump now. Saying this, I’m getting the impression she might not be finding it so lovely, she was 27 weeks on Tuesday and she just told me she won’t be able to carry Edie for 40 weeks because there’s nowhere for the bump to go. She’s a larrrf! I think…

Doctor, Doctor, blah blah, pull yourself together.

Edie’s nursery is coming along nicely. It has a massive window in it, which although is lovely is a massive pain in the arse for buying curtains, especially when it comes to baby curtains….unless when I was searching for “baby curtains” the search engines thought I literally meant curtains that are tiny, not fully grown…

It’s been 84 years.

Well who knew that Lowestoft was filled with lovely people? I feel like I’ve been left out of a secret. So I’m supercool, I now love Lowestoft/Southwold/generally all of Suffolk and I’ve genuinely been looking forward to a caravan programme that’s on tonight. How have I not got a fanclub? Edie had her second trip…

Saw Baby Kick!!!

I’m not going into a full post tonight but had to make a note that I saw little Edie kick this morning. What a weird experience, can’t imagine what it must have felt like for Tappy. The End!

It’s a girl!!!!!

I’ve been calling her Leyton/Leighton/Layton for ages but she doesn’t have a little winkle after all!! Really excited to find out it is a girl. I wasn’t really bothered what sex she was but I am wondering if I’d have been just as excited to find out it was a boy? We had Babydaddy with…
