Me and Mine – February 2014

This month’s Me and Mine photo is not, technically, a picture of the three of us. 

Look closely and you’ll see it in my hand: the grainy black and white photograph of my tiny blob of cells. That, and the pregnancy test that told me those cells are still there, growing, changing and becoming a person.

How could I not include that in our photograph for this month? What will hopefully be our second child, and a younger sibling for Thomas. At last. After all the months of trying and waiting and longing, I finally have hope that by the time the final Me and Mine of 2014 rolls around, there really will be four of us in it.

It’s early days, of course. I’m just 4 weeks and 5 days pregnant today. So much can go wrong. But so much can go right too. And as I explained here, I want to celebrate the fact that we’ve got this far, even if we get no further. I want to remember how this felt – and if you see the grins on our faces in this picture, you’ll get some idea. We’re over the moon!

So here it is. Me and Mine and our future family too.

  1. Oh I love this photo, for starters you all look like you’re about to burst with joy, but also how cool is it to have a picture of your baby at a few cells old! I’m sure you’d rather have not needed the IVF and had no picture but things being what they are it’s just incredible to see!

    1. It is a pretty awesome picture. Obviously I’d have preferred to save the heartache, stress (and cash) and not needed IVF, but it is certainly a tiny bonus of the process. Just keeping everything firmly crossed that the tiny blob of cells continues to grow until it’s a not so tiny baby. Somehow it still seems a little impossible that this can really happen.

  2. Oh my goodness, I’m so thrilled for you. I know from previous Me and Mine posts just how desperate you are to grow your family. And I’m so glad to have such an exciting Me and Mine photo to announce it. Congratulations! I’m wishing you a healthy nine months. x

    1. Hmmm… I know. I guess this post sticks out a bit now. But there is no way I can remove it because at that moment we were, or at least we’re going to be, a family of four.

      Comments are always welcomed as it is nice to know that people are thinking of us x
