Can I just say . . .

There is nothing more attractive than a wife who can put a baby to sleep. Without boobs. 

Tonight Amy is all kinds of sexy. #mumlife


Family – Finally

Indie Rose - Our world

Today I received approval that my name has been changed. 

I am now officially Belinda Hay! I have the same name as my partner and both my babies (when he arrives). 

Since it’s still illegal to marry in Australia (so sad) we had to go about it this way but at least we appear to be a family unit now. 

My previous name was my fathers and while I know of him and see him once every several years I never felt a connection to the name. Today when I received this I actually cried. Our babies and I are finally the same as their mumma. We are all a Hay now!

A little Update 

Indie Rose - Our world

Tomorrow we will be 27 weeks pregnant. Where has the time gone?

A quick update of things that have been going on baby and non baby related.

  • Amy graduated university. So proud. 
  • We reached viability. 
  • We passed the dreaded week 21 (the week we lost Indie). 
  • I turned 29. 
  • We found out we’re having a boy. 
  • We had the NIPT showing no extra or missing chromosomes. 
  • Amy’s sister, my SIL is due about a week before me (yay to a new baby niece or nephew). 
  • Amy turned 30. 
  • My job became less stressful with a demotion (same pay) and I’ve been smashing my new job role ever since. 
  • I’m still working full time hours. 
  • I WAS suffering from a varicose vein (internal) and when our little one moved up the pressure relieved itself. 
  • We can both feel and now see our son moving around. 
  • Our son likes RnB and some light classical music. 
  • We bought a bugaboo. 

Things yet to come that were both excited about both baby and non baby related. 

  • Amy got accepted to complete her Masters. 
  • I have been told that I’ll probably be in the audit team when I return to work. Yay. 
  • My brother is hosting our baby shower in the next few weeks. 
  • Glucose test tomorrow. 
  • Seeing baby Hay the following week. 
  • Breastfeeding classes. 
  • Hospital tour. 
  • Getting our bugaboo. 

I’ve probably forgotten a million things but I’ll do a proper update soon enough. 

In terms of how things have been, I can’t complain and to be honest I wouldn’t even if I had something to complain about. We are both so happy to finally be in the last trimester (depending on what app you read) and can’t wait to have him in our arms. 

We have decided to have no one other than us at the hospital until we’re ready (blog post to come about this). Mainly just to soak him up and enjoy everything we missed with Indie. 

I’ll leave you with some photos of my bump and some ultrasounds (he didn’t really like showing us his face at first) and promise to return ASAP with a bigger and more in depth blog post.

Our little secret

Indie Rose - Our world

So my lack of posting is a direct result of this. 

After a IUI – BFN, IVF 3 day fresh transfer  – BFN and a 3 day frozen embryo transfer we finally have our very own rainbow baby due July 2016. 

I’ve been feeling a fair bit of sickness this time around and I was so scared that one of my family members would find out via the blog so that’s why I haven’t been posting. I do apologise. 

At least now things are out in the open I can finally blog freely and happily about all things life and baby. 

I can’t believe Indie will be a big sister, I can’t believe our family is finally growing ❤️

I’ve been gone

Indie Rose - Our world

I need to do a extremely large update but for the moment amongst all the chaos that has been or is happening I snapped this and wanted to share with you all. 

I’m still here, reading almost daily but honestly I just haven’t had anything great to say. I promise I’ll update Monday!

My love and I after our bath. Sun was shining in the perfect place.
