“Welcome to the club”. I’ve thought about how I’m going to respond when the enevitable line is dropped by those who don’t know. A congratulatory welcome, as if it was some easy feat or something that took absolutely no work at all. Well let me tell you, I paid the membership price three times over! I worked really fucking hard for this, beyond anything you (hopefully) never have to comprehend. This “club” came with extreme heartache, worry and fear.
Let me tell you a little bit about my current membership. My club is one I didn’t sign up for. One that comes with a life long membership and no refunds. However, it reminds me that where I am today is fueled by love, excitement and gratitude. This is what keeps me going. Keeps us going.
So, what will I say to those faux friends welcoming me to the club? Not a fucking clue!

I didn’t know it at the time, but this picture was taken at the very beginning of my pregnancy with Baby Sister! • It’s super weird for me to say this, but I can’t wait to get back into working out, I’ve really missed it. The other day, for kicks and giggles…which almost turned into cries 🙈 I attempted to try on some exercise clothes (it didn’t go well in case you wondered) because they make me happy and they’re so comfy. It’ll be a great day when I’m able to move this body normally again!

9weeks6days
Yesterday I had a 45min phonecall with the midwives and started the booking in process. I live in NSW but will be delivering in the ACT as I am considered a high risk pregnancy and will be under the care of the Fetal Medicine Unit (FMU). The midwife discussed my risk for preeclampsia and wanted me to discuss with my local OB starting 150mg aspirin right away. Lucky for me I had an appointment with my OB yesterday to organise a private 12week scan & get more bloods that the midwife requested.
I am glad I got to speak to my OB and she currently thinks I’m low risk for preeclampsia (the midwife said my 2 moderate risk factors where this being my first pregnancy & my bmi) and told me to not start taking aspirin until I see FMU at 14weeks. I am having first trimester bloods when I have my scan which will also assess my risk for preeclampsia.

Whilst I was at my appointment I mention my anxiety about not knowing the babies current size & heart rate (my FS didn’t measure these when I had my scan at 7w3d) especially having two people I know have miscarriages at 11 & 12 weeks last week. To elevate some of my anxiety she did a quick scan & bug was snug & safely in place. A bit hard to measure thanks to my retroverted uterus and bug being in a curved position but she said they are measuring on track for 9w5d and had a heart rate 169bpm. Such a relief even though I know there are no guarantees during pregnancy.
I have more bloods & a scan with my FS next week and then will hopefully graduate from my clinic. I will also be getting my Harmony blood test (NIPT) next week and will be finding out the gender. My sister asked if she could do a gender reveal for me which I thought was such a beautiful idea. It’s nice to know my family is just as excited for this baby as I am since I don’t have a partner to share these milestones with.

Hope you are all having a relaxing weekend 💕 I’m getting stuck into @themidwifemumma Pregnancy Guide and loving it. It’s such a practical, no nonsense guide to pregnancy and the models of care in Australia.

I am 7 weeks, 4 days along.
Due January 11, 2021.

This baby is certainly making it’s presence very well known. Morning sickness is here with a vengeance.

If I said I wasn’t afraid I’d be lying through my teeth. Every wipe reminds me of my previous miscarriages and scares me to my core. I’m doing all that’s within my power to maintain a healthy early pregnancy, but there are factors outside of my control and surrenduring is the utmost hardest thing I’ve done. Replace fear with love – that’s the new motto.
