This week has already been eventful, Boxing Day started with some contractions about 20 minutes apart. My husband and I monitored the contractions through the day which was very hard as the contractions set off the fibroid pain which made the many pains hard to distinguish. By 11 pm we had...

I have had another boost in energy this week and have spent some time finishing off bits of shopping and generally helping my husband get the house in order for the baby. We went out for a lovely Thai dinner with friends, but had to leave early due to my feet swelling to the size of...

Oh, how I love Christmas time. My hubby helped me put up the Christmas tree and we brought a couple of silhouette lights to stick in the window of Santa and a reindeer. I have worded my hubby up that he has to go the full hog for lights next year. All our neighbours do it and I love the look...

This week has been an up and down week. I ended up in hospital with severe abdominal pain. Ultrasounds showed that the baby is going really well and they think that the pain is caused by the baby using my fibroid as punching bag. So they let me go home with some panadol forte to help relieve the...

This week has been a really good week. I have quite a lot of energy and this overwhelming urge to clean everything in sight. This usually results in me getting half way through something and having to call on my husband to help me finish the job. So I'm slowly driving my husband nuts. Over...

I am all belly now. Being only 51/2 and short waisted I have become what some may describe as a little dumpling. I havent put on much weight which is a good thing as I know I would have trouble loosing it later, but I do have this enormous belly that seems very disproportionate to the rest of my...

My husband told a friend recently about our decision not to breast feed for medical reasons. Our friend has since taken it on himself to research the issue on the internet and send the information he has found to another close friend who is a mothercraft nurse. He has also passed judgement...

Baby is busy growing and kicking away. We had our first week of ante-natal classes. The midwife is so helpful. After the class I explained that would be having a planned induction/epidural and that I suffered from ME/CFS and have multiple allergies. She was most reassuring. I am so happy that we...

This week I went away for a the weekend scrapbooking. I used to do this all the time and my friend convinced me that it would be good for me. I got my own room so that I could rest whenever I needed. It was great. I did not do anywhere near the scrapbooking I used to do, but I loved the...

After hitting the boom and bust cycle pretty heavy over the last couple of weeks, I decided to have a really quiet week. The only thing I had to do for the week was the gestational diabetes test, which I must say is most unpleasant. You have to fast for 10 hours before hand. They take your...

This week we had to attend a funeral to attend in Bendigo which is a three hour drive from home. We drove up the night before and stayed with my husbands Mum. We decided I would stay up there while he went back to work and he would come back for the weekend. Having had such a bad crash we did...

Completely overdid it and crashed for four days. The Fibromyalgia was so bad, I couldnt move. I made the mistake of thinking that as I was feeling good, and had more energy I could take the dogs for a walk. I only walked around the oval, so less than 10 minutes but the next day, I started to...

All is going well with the baby and he/she is kicking away madly. My husband felt the kicks for the first time on the weekend and we both had a tear in our eye. Whatever route this ME/CFS takes this baby will be very much wanted and loved. I have been to see the gynecologist and he thinks...

I woke up yesterday morning and felt pretty good. I had a shower which normally saps my energy, but I actually felt good. I felt so good actually, with no ME/CFS symptoms at all. I can't remember the last time I didn't have brain fog, but it must be years. I felt so normal, I had to ring my...

An unexpected surprise in the last two weeks. My brain fog has lifted to the level that I can now read and take in information. The boost of energy has meant that I have been able to get out of the house more and of course that also meant that I have overdone it and crashed for the last three...

It is week 21 of my pregnancy and I am finally feeling the effects of the energy boost that my specialists have told me would happen around this time. It makes me feel alive that I can now get out into the garden and sit in the sun for a while or sit in the soon to be nursery and work out what I...
