Pregnancy After loss Q&A....




After announcing our news I had a lot of messages asking if I have had any treatment been on medication etc etc so I decided to do a quick Q and A blog post. Lots of the questions were similar so I have combined them. I hope this helps!

Family Photoshoot with Florence Berry Photography





Last year we were lucky enough to win a photoshoot with the lovely Flo at Florence Berry Photography. I shared lots of pictures of our Autumnal shoot which you can see here. 

For the past two years we have always had a photoshoot for Brodie in June to mark his Birthday. This year, June was a pretty hectic month and decided instead of organising a shoot for Brodie we would organise a family photo shoot instead. (Mainly because Flo always captures the best images)

Tommys - #TogetherForChange






Baby loss. A subject no one wants to talk about, a subject so many try to avoid, a subject so many pretend doesn't exist.

Unless you are someone who has unfortunately experienced baby loss. Unless you are one of those 1 in 4.

Over the past two years that someone has been me.

Lost.





Lost. Lost is probably a good word to describe how I feel at the moment. So many thoughts and feelings buzzing around which make no sense. No better place to let them all out than a rambling blog post right?

Me & Mine; May 2018





This months Me and Mine photos were taken on our second wedding anniversary in Cyprus. We had dinner whilst the sun went down and was just perfect! There wasn't a cloud in the sky and being someone who absolutely loves a sunset I couldn't have asked for anything more, especially on our anniversary!

An Open letter to my Husband on our second Wedding anniversary




Two years....

Two years since I walked down the aisle to find you greeting me with tears. I couldn't wait a single minute longer to become your Wife. I would have ran down that aisle if Brodie wasn't so cute toddling his way down!

I don't want your baby. I just want mine




Since losing our girls a lot of people around us have fallen pregnant and had healthy babies. Of course, thats life. People aren't going to stop having children just because I lost mine but I would be lying if I said it doesn't hurt.

Tommy's Fundraising; Our Story



In May 2016 we got married, it was the perfect day and everything we dreamed of. After the wedding we decided we wanted to make our little boy Brodie a big brother and expand our family. Never in a million years did I think we would have the struggles we have experienced over the past two years.

I can't be fixed.





This is my story in brief. In June 2015 I had my first born child Brodie, In May 2016 I married my childhood sweetheart. In June 2016 I fell pregnant with our honeymoon baby, In August 2016 I miscarried at 9 weeks. In November 2016 I fell pregnant again. In February 2017 I gave birth to our first born baby girl at 18 weeks, at home. In my bathroom. In May 2017 I fell pregnant again. In September 2017 I gave birth to our second born baby girl, again at 18 weeks. I nearly died. It was traumatic for my family and myself. In January 2018 I unexpectedly fell pregnant. In March 2018 I miscarried again at 10 weeks.

Our Ski trip - January 2018





I have always been a lover for an all inclusive, hot, summer holiday. Before Brodie Adam & I would holiday abroad somewhere warm at least 3 times a year. Even with Brodie we have managed a holiday to Mauritius, Cyprus and Crete. We vowed that having children would not stop us holidaying and travelling!

Me & Mine; January 2018








This year I am determined to document more of my pictures and share them. This link seems like the perfect way and I cannot wait to see how our family changes through the different seasons!

January's pictures were of course taken on our amazing Ski holiday to Valmorel! I took so many gorgeous family photos that will certainly be getting framed! Skiing really is the most perfect, active family holiday and we all had so much fun!

Chasing happiness




There's so much I wish I could change about my life right now. It feels like one uphill battle but I have to be strong. I have to be happy for my baby boy.
