Illness, travel and milestones

Hi everyone, hope you are all doing well. I want to cover our trip to Vietnam, and the pregnancy and my illness all in one post- it’s quite tricky to write nicely on an iPhone due to the teeny screen, but I still haven’t had a chance to fix the computer. Unfortunately I’m writing from […]

Random tangents

On a random note, we got some Vegemite (the best you can get in the absence of Marmite!) yesterday. The happiness this caused me at breakfast time cannot be understated..! I suppose this is the closest I’ve had to a craving? Hot buttered toast with marmite! Heaven. I dropped the last (almost full) jar on […]

Almost at 12 weeks

Week 7

It was really amazing how much bigger they looked and how much stronger the heartbeats were. Absolutely amazing. I took a video too but don’t know how to […]
