For those of you needing a translation that is French for I am knocked up, clearly that is not a literal translation but you get the drift. I am actually quite far on now but I decided to wait a while before I shared this news with you. This was for two reasons, the first being that I had some personal issues that I was dealing with the second being that I have not had the best of luck with pregnancy in the past.
At the weekend I shared a story about my journey through breast cancer. I received over 30 emails that Sunday from ladies who have cancer and people who lot their relatives to cancer. As I sat and replied to those emails I was moved by the fact that so many people had wanted to connect with me. I was so moved that I made a decision that I will try and share more personal aspects of myself here.
I have lost 6 babies before this pregnancy and I have to be honest when I say I will not feel like I am out of the woods until I am holding this baby in my arms. So far everything is going well in this pregnancy so fingers and toes crossed. Something that I am not going to do, I am not going to say that a baby can happen for anyone. One of the things that I hated the most was after every miscarriage everyone always had an uplifting story for me. I felt ungrateful for not being comforted by others when they wee just trying to be nice but nothing anyone could say or do would take away the pain from the loss of the baby.
I will be starting a retrospective maternity style series, as I have said I am quite far along right now so I will be going back in time for the clothes. I will not be turning this into a baby blog however this blog is a lifestyle blog and there are elements of my life that influence the things that appear on here. So there will be some nursery craft here soon and some maternity how tos.
In the meantime enjoy the recipes, craft and usual ramblings and keep your fingers and toes crossed for me.
