For 2 days in a row I exercised twice in one day. Twice! Today I went to Fitness First for 40 minutes in the morning before work and this afternoon I went to Fernwood for 50 minutes after work. Still surviving with Optifast for dinner, though tonight I did have to have a piece of […]

I thought this would be the first year in 4 years that I wouldn’t apply for the Biggest Loser. However since the events of the last few weeks, I guess I am once again eligble. Strangely enough, it had not even occured to me to apply. I had thought about it a few times over […]

As if what we have been through is not enough, today I had to go to an abortion clinic to have a dilation and curettage. Aside from my Mum dying 14 years ago, it was truly one of the worst experiences of my life. I sat in a room full of women and girls who […]

Unfortunately our baby’s heart stopped sometime over the weekend. I suspect it was Saturday night as I slept terribly that night and woke up many times. I woke up at one point feeling physically very strange and feeling a kind of heartbeat in my hand and arm and it all was just weird. I woke […]

I am carrying a 15 week old baby girl with Turners Syndrome. As I mentioned in my last post, Turners girls who survive the pregnancy lead relatively normal lives. They are intellectually normal and mostly physically normal too aside from being shorter than normal and the fertility issues.¬† However most babies don’t survive the pregnancy. […]
