Our life with acute myeloid leukemia

Just a diary I'm keeping after we found out on 9th June 2010 (our baby's first birthday) that my other half has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer and how we get by (hopefully I'll be better with this than I am with a diary :giggle: )

So I took my first "bump" picture today, more for comparing a time goes on than because I have an actual bump but it's something I wish I had done more of with Austin. It does interestingly show that my spine has given up and has a nice old curve to it already so I might need to make myself aware of that o I don't fall over all the time :giggle: .
Still feeling rough, in fact, after a few days of feeling quite good I would say that I feel a bit worse than before which I could do without really. Got my midwife appointment coming up this Tuesday coming so hopefully that will make it all feel a bit more real again as for the last few weeks I haven't felt pregnant, despite feeling like poo. It's odd but I guess it's just because I have no appointments and I haven't met my midwife and I can't feel baby yet and I have no bump and everything is just sort of carrying on as normal. Maybe once I have met the midwife and been for my scan it will all feel "official".
Think I might start saving for the birth pool about now though. I really want to have a home water birth this time and I think that if I do have the pool it might actually motivate m a bit more to stay at home and FC it will be the pain relief I need that I didn't have last time.
Only other thing to note is that the smell of chicken cooking makes me sick as a dog, I didn't really have anything like that while I was pregnant with Austin so it is another interesting thing to note down I suppose.

I could'nt stand any cooked meat. A roast dinner used to make me hide under a duvet with all the sides clamped down. The problem was that we lived with my in-laws and they had a roast EVERY Sunday :( Now that Ed is out, I can finally enjoy a roast again but it took 12 weeks after his birth until I really wanted one.
Your little teeny bump is so lovely :D
