Some Personal News...

It is rather early days to be sharing, but there is a time to make a leap of faith and just go for it!

I don't normally share such personal news on my blog, but it is appropriate as this is a vessel for me to record my memories as well as share my crafty projects. 

My husband and I were never blessed with children, so for about the past two years, we have been going through procedures and IVF in a last ditch effort. 

So about three weeks ago, I was delighted when I found out I was pregnant!  I had my first early pregnancy scan today at 7 weeks and 1 day and my due date is 19th July. 

I was so emotional when I saw not one, but two! heartbeats on the scanner.   How amazing, and it was  exactly our dream to have twins, should we have dared to dream it. 

Apparently our babies are at a perfect stage of their development, one being 10 mm, and the other being 9mm. 

Hence why I have been coming home from work, and faceplanting the pillow in a coma!  I am also struggling with other lovely pregnancy-related conditions like intense heartburn, massive indigestion, and other things too undignified to name! 

So please friends and everyone, forgive unloaded layouts and uncompleted challenges - I just don't have the energy!
