It’s ok to fall apart

Every now and then we fall apart. That’s ok. That’s normal. Life is hard sometimes.

Tacos fall apart all the time and we still love them πŸ˜‰ #aussiemum #motherhoodthroughinstagram #documentyourdays #largefamilylogistics #uniteinmotherhood #mamahoodinsquares #our_everyday_moments #letthembelittle #momsofinstagram #ig_motherhood #sahm #motherhoodunplugged #familylife #toddler #toddlerlife #lifeslittlemoments #megamotherhood #littlestoriesofmylife #dailyparenting #motherhoodrising #capture_today #authenticparenting #parentingblogger #motherhood #parenting#parenting

Invisible illness

Invisible illness…

As the months went on I got more unwell and still no pregnancy. The cramps got worse, the flow got heavier and longer. I needed relief and couldn’t keep having sick days off work. I finally got into a gyno. We had been married 18 months. I had scans. PCOS and possible endometriosis. Surgery was required to confirm and try and help. The catch is it scars the uterus. If we wanted pregnancy it could be a now or never scenario. I was 24 years old. We went ahead with surgery and yes there was endo. But not everyone with pcos and endo have fertility issues. Stay positive. Just relax. Try these drugs. We tried pills after pills no luck. Stop trying it will happen (I HATE THIS PHRASE). If we wanted to be parents could ivf be our only option? Could we afford that? Could I still work? Do I want to do that?

Why does it feel like everyone except me is pregnant?

Moving

In October 2008 we got told we were being transferred back to Sydney
πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ
Back to friends and family and most important my medical centre, maybe I would get some answers.
We booked in our move and left so fast we were moved and settled before Christmas. Happy was an understatement.

2008-3

Are you pregnant yet?

The WORST question to hear after you get married. As soon as the honeymoon was over it started. Of course we wanted to be, I had dreamed of being a mum my whole life, But it just wasn’t the case. The question kept coming and coming and so did my period and my pain and illness got worse and worse. It felt like I was in tears daily and no one in Darwin seemed to be able to help me or tell me what was wrong.

2008-2

The hens night was a night full of fluro, laughter, pole dancing and penis straws. The wedding was amazing. Lots of good food, good friends, good fun and of course full of love. It had rained the whole week before but that day the 21st June 2008 the sun shone through the clouds and it was amazing. We were officially a forever family of 2. A quick gold coast honeymoon then enroute to Darwin after tearful farewells. We were hubby and wifey.

2008

No roadtrip comes without hiccups… driving through  the outback,  making the last few wedding decisions, excited to get down to Sydney  over the long weekend (we started driving friday), 6 weeks off work, it was all happening we were getting married. Pulled into a servo on the barkly hwy and the car won’t start. Friday night… long weekend… perfect ο€”… We managed to get a tow… But they wouldn’t tow us to Mount Isa, that was over the boarder, so back to Tenant creek it was. A little town that basically had a supermarket, motel and red rooster… of course nothing opened til tuesday!
We managed some sleep that night but the drama wasn’t over..  My bridesmaids called.. the dresses are wrecked. 2 weeks till I do and no dresses…. ο™ˆ Stuck in the middle of nowhere Mum got onto it. Basically I didn’t care about colour just 5 matching dresses mum! Then I got the flu. Talk about emotions. The 3 days of doing nothing didn’t sit well.  I don’t like to just wait, I like to get things done.  It felt like a year but Tuesday came and we were finally on our way. The rest of the trip thankfully uneventful and we were in Sydney on Thursday. Just in time for my hens night (But I was still sick)!

2007

Darwin was where our love bloomed. Life was hard but great at the same time. He was away a lot for work, I worked at a small perfume shop with very little staff. It was the era before Facebook groups and I just couldn’t find a lot of friends. Though I loved my perfume shop girls dearly. I missed my friends and family in Sydney, I was sick of constantly sweating and let’s not get started on cyclones and crocodiles! He proposed on 17th June 2007 on Darwin Wharf and of course I said yes. I started having a lot of medical issues, cramps, a lot of bleeding, extreme pain, fatigue, pretty much just felt sick all the time but life went on. It was very hard to find good Drs in Darwin! I spent a few nights in the hospital but it was over crowded and I ended up just getting sent home still unwell. Time went by and wedding planning kept me busy. My girls from Sydney came to visit and before we knew it we were on the road to get hitched in Sydney. Excited to see everyone and expecting to be in Darwin a few more years.

2006

Once upon a time there was a 20 year old girl….. Who met a 20 year old boy…  outside a hogsbreath cafe in Cronulla NSW. Neither prepared for what would follow but  both knowing something special had happened almost instantly. They stayed up talking night after night it was bliss.  Then he had to move to Darwin and she faced a huge decision. Does she move to give their hearts what they want or stay in the safety of her parents nest? After months of long  distance she decided to jump on that plane and land in Darwin and that’s where the love really begins…..
