four little words (our miracle pregnancy)

October 5, 2015 at 8:36 pm 9 comments

Four little words.  Caught in my throat.  Barely a whisper.  As tears filled my eyes.
G smiled.  Silently.  Before bear hugging the breath out of me.

Four little words. ”We made a baby”



a highly improbable or extraordinary event, development, or accomplishment
that brings very welcome consequences.

    For anyone who doesn’t believe in God, proof that he listens to prayer and truly provides the most beautiful gifts. Congrats! Xx

    Together you’re making 4 more
    A delightful human being.
    Congratulations to the 3 of you, whoops, + cats :~)
    for the memories you’re making, so that when E is grown
    and ready to take his place in society it will be on solid foundations.
    He’ll have so much to give a partner and children all because you
    and G had those original 4 little words.

    Those four little words
    Next year to be

    Well done to Nic
    and G and E

    Oh my darling, darling girl . . . deepest wonderful congratulations to you both (must never forget the wonderful G!!!)

    I’m not very good at “reading” scans and things … but that does not look like a tiny little bunch of cells to me. You know you have now got to share more – when are you due, how long have you hugged this wonderful delicious secret to yourselves? What does E. say?

    Thank you for gorgeous email – will reply later, just off to bed now 🙂

Lunch served on a bed of allotment grown lettuce to make up for the distinct lack of a certain green ingredient from my Greek Salad (I can't really call it that anyway as I can't resist adding balsamic vinegar). #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife

My fab little elderflower forager #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #foragersdelight #foragingisfun
It's the season - elderflower cordial making. Everything about this activity was sheer delight from picking with L to making with a friend. And the smell and taste, so yummy. Details on the blog (link in bio)
Fathers Day came and went with G having to work away for the day and me being busy with the boys at my parents. So I didn't get the chance to say what a brilliant, supportive and kind Father and husband G is. This is Luca at 4 days old snugged into his Dad's hoody when I was too ill with an infection to hold him We were cup feeding him expressed milk because he had a tongue tie and couldn't nurse. Hard times are always made easier with @musicalgeorgemoorey by my side. #nipitinthebudblog #coparentingdad #gloucesterlife
"This is the stuff of nightmares". If you're living and loving through childhood cancer, know someone who is or simply care about others please read and share @the_tightrope_walker 's latest post. Such courage with her own son's cancer journey but determined to raise awareness along the way #childhoodcancerawarenessmonth
Both boys are home with coughs and colds today so home-made #wildgarlicpestopasta for lunch is about as wild as it's going to get today #30dayswild
Lots of redcurrant jelly makers out there judging by this week's blog stats. #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #redcurrantjelly
We haven't even left the bedroom yet and Euan's got his nature head on for #30dayswild - pretending to be Walter the slug from Beatbugs using his IKEA tunnel! @gloswildlife #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Day 16 of #30dayswild - reading nature stories at bedtime. One of E's favourites 'The winter hedgehog'. When I said to E we hadn't really done a random act of wildness today he immediately replied "yes we did, we went outside, we looked at flowers and Luca picked up pine cones on the way to Alfie's party". Oh yes! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog @gloswildlife
Spotted Superboy out and about in Gloucester today! #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife
