Lockdown parenting and potty training

I’ve been meaning to do a little life update. Honestly it doesn’t seem like there’s that much news but actually it feels like I’ve been busy because we have been… (cue atmospheric music) potty training! Warning: if you aren’t interested in our potty training achievements that this post is mainly about that so you may…

R3D16: Small things

Well at least it didn’t get any worse overnight! Weight: No change, -1.7kg in total. Post loo: another -0.2kg, so -1.9kg in total. Going to go hard this week as I want to hit a target by Saturday. This isn’t recommended as such but I’m that kind of competitive person who doesn’t like to lose….

R3D15: Oh dear

Well I knew I shouldn’t have had the chocolate ginger biscuits last night! I guess I’m that person who always just thinks they can go hard at the last minute (deadline this Saturday; it’s Monday) and I’ve always been like that. Oh dear!

R3D2: Back in the swing of things

I forgot how I used to use the numbers in the title to denote where I was at. I suppose we could call this Round 3. Although really I’m above where I was in Round 2 (not by much) so I suppose it is just using the numbers to say that I’m on a new…

The end of an era

I stopped wearing nursing specific clothes a while ago. We are still nursing. (At 3 and a bit, B seems to have no desire to give up and I’m not trying either way.) I don’t need to feed him during the day usually, and I stopped pumping when he turned 2, so I was thankful…

Hello World!

Here we are in 2020… It’s the future! I can’t even imagine how different my life is now compared with when I started my previous blog, From Zero to Zygote. A lot has happened since then. Infertility (so many years, let’s call it 20) 2 x endometriosis ops 1 x fibroid op Over 600 self-administered…
