So I am literally the worst blogger in the world for not having updated this blog in nearly 2 months! I think if I’m honest I needed a time out. Time to process where my head was at. Until I’d done that I just found it impossible to put words to paper. Nothing sounded right. But now I’m back and honestly I feel like I’m in the best place I’ve been in for a long while! I’m happy. For the first time in ages I can actually say those two words and truly mean it. It feels freeing and it feels GOOD.
Now for an update!
Noah is now nearly 2 years and 4 months old and he is amazing but also hitting the terrible twos majorly! He is adorably cheeky and learning new words and phrases all the time. We have to be extra careful what we say now! Like, for example, the other day Jamie was driving and someone pulled out in front of us nearly causing us to crash and J yelled out “You idiot!!”. Well for the next half hour Noah was angrily yelling “udiot!” to anyone we passed. Luckily I don’t think they realised what he was actually saying. Least I hope not. He’s also so caring, telling us to “be careful!” even if all we’re doing is brushing our teeth.
He’s loving nursery and even has a mini best friend! She goes the same day as him on Wednesdays and his face quite literally lights up when he sees her and he barely even notices me waving goodbye. And so it begins….
Speaking of beginnings….we also have an update on another aspect of our lives. We have officially started our frozen embryo transfer cycle to try for baby number 2! On Wednesday I had a day 21 triptorelin injection to start down regulation and we are on schedule for a transfer in the middle of May! The next stage is to wait for my period to arrive, ring the clinic on day 1 and they’ll book me in to start on estrogen tablets 3 times a day. Before we began I was incredibly nervous but now I’m feeling positive and excited and praying that this is the start of an exciting new chapter for our family!
So that’s you pretty much caught up! I’ll be sure to update more on our FET cycle in more detail and on our family.
Hope anyone who reads this is in a happy place in their lives. If you’re not, don’t be afraid to reach out to people or to take time out for yourselves. Whatever you need.
