The Keeping Busy List

Keeping Busy, ectopic pregnancy, ecctopic pregnancy survivor

I guess this is the start of the keeping busy list, to actually blog again. So here I am! 

I've shared on my personal facebook page and on Instagram that we tragically lost our baby at the start of this month, due to an ectopic pregnancy. There is a lot more I could say and a whole long story, I know people have questions too. But I'm not quite ready to share it in its entirety yet nor do I know if I ever will be.

For now, I have been signed off work until 2nd February and due to the nature of the medication I was given, we can't try again for another baby for 3 months. Right now, I can't even begin to imagine trying again but also, 3 months is a long time, especially when all I've really thought about for 15 months is having a baby. 

So I know I want to be in the best place physically, emotionally and mentally when our next hospital appointment comes around in April. Right now I am in no way pushing myself, I'm still struggling immensely with physical side effects so I'm learning a lot about taking things easy. 

But I did write a "keep busy" list, late one night when I couldn't sleep. Some of it I've already completed, some of it I may not get around to, but I thought it'd be fun to share anyway:
