We have some amazing news. Geoff and I are thrilled, delighted and overjoyed to announce that we’re expecting a baby. Oh yes, ShootUp is getting an offshoot, I’m pregnant!
Due to a particularly ineffective set of polycystic ovaries who seem to have used my pancreas as their role model when it comes to how to be an unhelpful body organ, it’s taken us 6 years to get this far. The upside of that is that following plenty of fertility drugs, IVF and early miscarriages I am now quite expert on diabetes and infertility!
Diabetes has of course been closely involved, but for today, it is being shoved in a corner where it belongs, out of the limelight. Suffice to say, it has been given a stern talking to, kept on a very short leash and I have a baby pleasing HbA1c of 5.7%.
For now though, lets forget about all the diabetes and infertility palaver and celebrate. I’m 3 months pregnant and the incessant nausea, vomiting and exhaustion of the past few months seems to be coming to an end. Please join us in being completely and utterly over the moon.
